    • Prepared by, Anne Kish Last updated: January 24, 2014 For LIBM 466: Libraries and Technology Topic 3
    • I. Netiquette Rules II. Netiquette Terms III. Common Shorthand
    • Netiquette Rules Some rules to keep in mind for your Internet communications…
    • Be yourself – with your friends. At work be your professional self. The amount of effort you put into grammar and spelling depends on who makes up your audience and on how you want to present yourself to that audience.
    • Forgive and Forget Most work places include someone who fires off frequent critical emails to the whole work place. Don’t respond in email to those emails and definitely don’t be that person – nobody likes that person. If you do need to respond, talking on the phone or in person will work best. Avoid the “reply to all” button.
    • STOP YELLING AT ME!!! Using all caps indicates yelling.
    • Be careful about attaching large files when sending emails. You may fill up the recipients’ inboxes or you may send something that they can’t open with the programs on their computers or with limited bandwidth. Sending attachments is not a bad thing, but do think about whether or not the attachments are appropriate for the recipients.
    • Netiquette Terms Some terms to know…
    • Contraction of Internet etiquette, the etiquette guidelines for posting messages to online services, and particularly Internet newsgroups. Netiquette covers not only rules to maintain civility in discussions (i.e., avoiding flames), but also special guidelines unique to the electronic nature of forum messages. For example, netiquette advises users to use simple formats because complex formatting may not appear correctly for all readers. In most cases, netiquette is enforced by fellow users who will vociferously object if you break a rule of netiquette. http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/N/netiquette.html
    •  (n.) A searing e-mail or newsgroup message in which the writer attacks another participant in overly harsh, and often personal, terms.  (v.) To post a flame. http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/F/flame.html
    • To send a single electronic message or article to several different newsgroups at the same time. http://www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/british/cross-post
    • To read messages in a newsgroup or a chat room or on a social networking site or a blog without ever posting or replying yourself. http://www.netlingo.com/word/lurk.php#
    • Common Shorthand What are they saying to me??? These are good to know, but are not usually suitable for professional communications…
