Netiquette For The Internet
Because Your Words Matter. ~ Kylie Jacobs
- Don't ask a stranger to be your friend without a proper introduction
- Don't pester your friends with advertisements to join groups. Do it once. If they don't join, just drop it.
- Don't post pictures of your friends they didn't want you to post. If they want you to post it, they will tell you.
- You don't need to accept every friend request. People aren't always who they say they are. Friend only people you know.
- Don't TYPE IN ALL CAPS! It makes it seem like you are shouting.
Sometimes they can be just for fun-but if you are using them for business reasons, better touch up the spelling.
- Have a respectful email address. No one is going to want to see firstname.lastname@example.org. Especially when you're applying for a job.
- Be clear what you want to talk about. If someone sees Hey! In the headline for an email, they will most likely ignore the email until further notice-or possibly delete it.
- Check your spelling and grammar. Seeing Hey man, waz up? Hw r u? I doing good. Check ya l8r. YOLO. Is annoying and making it hard for the reader to understand what the sender is saying.
- Finally, end with a proper closing, such as Sincerely, or Thanks. Don't end with nothing. If the reader didn't know who sent it, they will possibly think t is a stranger, and delete the e-mail.
