Overview of Activity
This activity helps participants to acknowledge that not everything on social media is actually real and that they should be proud of themselves.
Description of Activity

1. This activity should be played by 10 people and facilitated by one person.

2. Facilitator starts off the game by asking warm-up questions. Participants should be encouraged to share their opinions and feelings and the facilitator should make sure that rules are read out.

3. Facilitator splits the group into two groups, a group of five, and each participant should be paired up with one participant from the other group. 

4. Facilitator asks one question that is recommended, see notes, and let participants discuss it with their pairs for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, participants should change their pairs and the facilitator asks another question, and thus in five rounds, everyone talks to members of the other group.

5. After five rounds, the facilitator starts a debriefing session by asking the following questions:
• How many of you are a dog person and a cat person? (relax question)
• How did it go, the conversation you had with each group member?
• Is social media real or fake? What would you say about this?
• How should we use social media? Should it make us feel bad or good?
