Social Inspector – Cameron Rowbury
Social Investigator (2020)
By Cameron Rowbury
Social Investigator is a mobile game that seeks to educate players about social media moderation and address commonly found issues in social media. Particularly the presence of; misinformation, extremism, 18+ content and targeted harassment. Additionally, the game also seeks to help provide a sort of literacy to those who are not as familiar with the content found on social media. The gameplay consists of the user being given a series of posts that they must assess and decide the correct action to perform as a moderator. This could range from a simple flag for perpetuating misinformation, or it could have you ban the account linked to the post. I hope that people find this concept interesting and fun.
