Are You Digitally Well-Mannered?

Digital etiquette or netiqette refers to golden rules in any form of communication that is linked to technology. These are the general rules to follow while talking online, texting or emailing...

  • Beginning and ends: Always start a conversation with a “hi” or “hello”. It’s polite and regarded as a great conversation starter. Close the conversation with a “bye” because only the illiterate end the conversation vaguely.
  • Keep it simple: Avoid jargons as the other person might not get what you are saying. 
  • Avoid trailing off: If you stop responding to somebody all of a sudden they will think you’re ignoring them. If you have to go and do something, say “BRB” or “one sec”.  
  • Always ask: Posting people’s pictures or any other private stuff is a big no-no. This might hurt somebody’s sentiments and privacy. It’s always better to ask. 
  • General is the best: Being too involved or trying to be too personal in the first few conversations is scary.  
  • Avoid all caps: It looks like you’re shouting.

I don''t think that one should use slang or short forms while a telephonic conversation. Often the person on the other side, doesn''t get the thing one is talking about.
