  7. 7. The Birth of Social Scamming… [cough]…I mean Social Gaming<br />Social Games include:<br />Mafia Wars<br />Farmville<br />Vampire Wars<br />Social Gaming companies like Zynga profit unethically<br />Use faster game progression as a bribe to profit through “in-game currency” and advertising<br />Rules have been put in place by Facebook to cut down scamming, but developers ignore them and Facebook doesn’t enforce them<br />However…<br />Advertisers are benefiting from social gaming<br />The number of users continue to multiply<br />Ethical or Unethical?<br />
  8. 8. Reality Games: Unaware Participation<br />Companies are starting to use this as a promotional technique<br />Toyota’s YouOtherYou promotion<br />“Friend” gives Toyota (Prankster) contact information of the “Prankee”<br />Toyota then pranks the victim through emails, phone calls and text messages<br />“Friend” can track the prank in real time from his/her computer<br />The end of the prank results in a “Gotcha!” and somehow ties in Toyota’s new Matrix vehicle… many “prankees” were not happy at all.<br />Acceptable Promotion Technique?<br />
