What Is Digital Etiquette

  1. 1. By: Erik Jergensen<br />What is Digital Etiquette?<br />
  2. 2. Let’s Start With a Definition!<br />Digital Etiquette is defined as internet manners. <br />On the internet, when instant messaging, emailing or posting pictures/videos, no one can see you.<br />If people can’t see you, and they read your words and not hear your words, TONE DOES NOT EXIST.<br />This is a problem…<br />
  3. 3. Be NICE!!!<br />When tone is absent in communicating, ambiguity is formed which clouds the meaning of the entire conversation. <br />Some people say things jokingly, but it is not always clear to the other person if you are kidding or not.<br />Some examples include: sarcasm, irony, cheeky speak or making fun. <br />
  4. 4. A Picture is Worth 1000 Words. <br />Tone is not always bad digital etiquette, otherwise known as NETiquette.<br />Inappropriate pictures, such as sexting is a common problem in the media lately.<br />Sexting is the sending of pornographic pictures to people, who may not always be aware when they push “view”.<br />Also, if there is a compromising photo of someone (perhaps embarrassing) it should only be posted if the person in question is okay with it; respect their wishes.<br />
  5. 5. Cyber Bullying<br />People have been getting shoved in lockers for years, but that is not the only way to bully. <br />Online or by phone, calling names, being mean or making threats is something in the technology world too.<br />Cyber Bullying is not a joking matter and everyone should treat one another as they would want to be treated, i.e. the Golden Rule!<br />
  6. 6. What Do We Do About It?<br />The best thing to do is to not do anything that can be controversial or misconstrued as mean or inappropriate. <br />Practice manners online, in your phone and, more generally, ALL THE TIME.<br />People should treat others with respect all the time and that DOES NOT end at the keyboard. <br />
  7. 7. Recap<br />Digital etiquette is practicing the Golden Rule in any form of communication that is linked to technology.<br />Do not be offensive, rude, mean or a bully.<br />Know that joking is fun, but if there is any chance of ambiguity, why risk it?<br />No one’s feelings are made of steel, remember when you type mean or post bad pictures, YOU ARE NOT FUNNY YOU ARE WRONG!<br />
  8. 8. Recap (cont’d)<br />Look before you leap. <br />Digital Etiquette is about using manners in cyber space and using technology in a responsible way.<br />Technology is not to be used to bully, embarrass, cheat, humiliate or hurt anyone or for any cause. <br />If you follow the rules of Digital Etiquette, no trouble should come to you. <br />Set an example to others and think…<br />
