Seminar Group Project
Divide participants into multiple groups with each group taking 10—15 minutes to develop a list of offensive social media warfare tactics. Upon completion, have groups exchange their lists of social media warfare tactics, with groups taking 10—15 minutes to develop defensive measures to effectively counter the offensive tactics. Meet as a group and discuss the offensive tactics selected and the defensive measures to counter the tactics developed by the groups.
