Goals<br />There are no winners or losers to the Social Media Game. This game is intended to help you understand the basic mechanics of the social web as well as strategize online communicating through the Web 2.0.<br />
How it’s played<br />Choose from a set of 30 Social Media Cards divided into 4 categories: Collaboration, Media Content/Networking, Online Broadcast, and Communication Tools. Each card costs a certain amount of credits. <br />Your group will receive an objective card. Discuss, examine, and see how the different types of tools best achieve your objective for about 10 minutes. You have just 12 credits to spend.<br />You will receive a Situation Card that offers an Opportunity (gain credit), a Dilemma (lose credit), or a Wild Card (more credit to choose another Social Media Card or create your own Social Media Card). Re-strategize using the Situation Card. You are given only 10 more minutes.<br />Present your objective, situations and strategy on how to communicate online using social media tools to achieve your goal.<br />
