There are two versions of the social media game here:

  • One designed for a workshop on public relations, communication and engagement in housing organisations - Blog item here
    • A version with a revised set of cards designed for a workshop at the Institute of Fundraising.

Put simply:

* There's a slide presentation
* People break into groups of 6-8 and invent scenarios around local housing organisations and their residents
* They then present the scenarios as challenges to a pair group
* Groups use a matrix to think of who they are trying to engage and why: consume information, communicate, collaborate
* They then choose communication methods from a set of cards. Each card has 1, 2, 3 points - budget is 15.
* The develop a plan and present this back to the "client" group
* Group split into sub-groups and tell the stories of how this works for different characters, and the project
