Divide Et Impera is a game where you interact with a connected group of diverse people initially in good relations between them; by using potentially divisive speech in various forms you try to bring about division and hostility, finally separating the group in fractions. Through manipulation of a simulated small community, the gamer can be confronted with and made aware of actual mechanisms used to manipulate people in social media. Adolescents can learn this way to be more critical about the sources and content of information they find in social media.
Online hate speech often enters discourse in an apparently banal and everyday way: by commenting on current events or by posting jokes, you can realise how many similar messages you may have encountered on social media and how these messages could hurt people’s sensitivity.
