Digital Etiquette

Netiquette is a word we use for digital etiquette. Netiquette is being polite online and making sure you don’t put anything online that probably doesn’t need or should be there. Flaming or Flame Wars are when someone sends a mean comment or message about a picture or video or just something on the internet. Some people actually surf the internet for something to start a argument or fight about, these people are called Trolls. Anonymous is where someone will use a fake name so no one knows who it is so anyone can be mean or rude thinking they can do what they want because no one knows who it is. Communicating clearly is also very important so people know what you mean like don’t write in capital letters, emoji’s help too because through text or comment people can’t see your expressions or tone of voice so emoji’s help do that here is an example of a misinterpreted text (NICE JOB! YOU GOT 70% ON YOUR TEST!) and here is the text that makes sense (Nice job! You got 70% on your test! =D) See the difference? Permission now that is important. If you want to post a picture of your friend or family member you must get permission from them first to make sure it is ok or they might feel embarrassed about that picture because they might not of wanted that picture to be seen by the world. Once your message is out, it’s out means that once you post it or send it you can’t get rid of it.
