Applying game mechanics to social media
Everyone likes games – your preference might be for the simple, like Solitare, or complex, like World of Warcraft. If you think games are frivolous, think again – they help us accomplish the simple, like getting an infant to eat, and the complex, like warming up surgeons or disaster response. But as in all things, moderation is key and some people have died when taking games too far. Here’s how game mechanics work.

- Collecting things
- Earning points
- System feedback
- Value exchanges
- Customization and personalization
