Social Media Boot Camp- Gamification Edition

I’ve discussed gamification in my last post and wanted to share an presentation that might help an unconfident “gamificationer” understand it better. During my Social Media Campaigns for Public Relations class at Penn State, we held a Social Media Boot Camp and I presented on gamification. Some important points I brought up to help a viewer understand how it works:

Gamification only works if content is compelling enough to engage members repeatedly, consistently and with the right frequency.

How to gamify
  • provide real time rewards
  • encourage participation and competition
  • create leaderboards
  • Increase member motivation
  • Happier when working hard, doing meaningful and rewarding work
  • Quick feedback
