Design for Discomfort - Truth or Dare
Social Media Truth or Dare is a game that is intended to unveil your “true self” to your social networks. The activity involves an uncomfortable process of interpersonal interaction in cyberspace, prompting players to surrender control of self-representation and internet activity that is otherwise curated. What do you hide from your social networks? Are you the same person IRL as you are on Instagram? What are the discrepancies between your online self and real self?
Form a group of 2-4 people.
Log onto your social networks.
Spin the bottle to pick first player.
Spinner asks the player “truth or dare?”
For truth, spinner asks player to post a screenshot of one of their search histories (facebook, instagram, internet browser, etc) to the spinner’s liking.
For dare, spinner commands the player to post (anything of spinner’s choice) publicly to their social networks.
Wait for reactions.
Alternate spinners/players and repeat.
