What is "Netiquette"?

Netiquette is....

We all know how to act when we are out with our parents, friends, formal functions, school, and work but how do we act when the other people we are talking to cannot see us? That is called netiquette. Netiquette is etiquette on the internet. One rule of thumb is that if you right in all caps, that is considered yelling at the other person. When you are emailing to a friend it is ok to you the same emoticons and acronyms (LOL, TTYL, BFF) but if you are emailing a co-worker, teacher, or parent they are not excepted. Here is a great site that has more information on netiquette.
