Netiquitte Slideshow

  1. 1. Netiquitte How to Handle Online Communication
  2. 2. Communicating clearly on the Internet  • Communicating clearly on the internet without creating misunderstandings is a challenge. • One problem is that you haven't any facial expressions, body language, or environment to help you express yourself;  another that there is little "give and take" for developing what you mean to say or are discussing.
  3. 3. The following guidelines will hopefully help you:
  4. 4. Be Clear • Make sure the subject line (e- mail) or title (web page) reflects your content
  5. 5. Use Appropriate Language • If you have a question on whether or not you are too emotional, don't send the message, save it, and review it "later". • Remember: no one can guess your mood, see your facial expressions, etc. All they have are your words, and your words can express the opposite of what you feel. • Don't use ALL CAPITAL LETTERS--it's equal to shouting or screaming
  6. 6. Be Brief • If your message is short, people will be more likely to read it. Refer to the Guide on "Writing for the Internet"
  7. 7. Make a Good Impression • Your words and content represent you; review/edit your words and images before sending
  8. 8. Be Selective • on what information you put in an e-mail or on a web site: Information on the Internet is very public, and can seen by anyone in the world including criminals, future employers, and governments.
  9. 9. Forwarding Messages • Do so only with permission from the sender
  10. 10. You are NOT Anonymous • What you write in an e-mail and web site can be traced back to you
  11. 11. Consider Others • If you are upset by what you read or see on the Internet, remember other people have rights too. Forgive bad spelling or what you think can be chalked up to stupidity; If you think it violates the law, forward it to the FBI or your state's Attorney General
  12. 12. Obey Copyright Laws • Don't use others' images, content, etc. without permission • Don't forward e-mail, or use web site content without permission • Visit the Library of Congress' Guide on "Copyright Basics"
  13. 13. Cite the Work of Others • Refer to the Guide on "Citation"
  14. 14. Distribution • Use distribution lists appropriately and with permission
  15. 15. Don’t Send SPAM • SPAM is posting or e-mailing unsolicited e- mail, often advertising messages, to a wide audience (another way of thinking of it is electronic junk mail)
  16. 16. Don’t Forward Chain Mail • If you receive one, either delete it or notify your web master. No one likes chain
  17. 17. Don’t Respond to “Flames” • “Flames” are personal attacks. If someone is giving you a hard time online either be the bigger person and ignore it, or email the webmaster and let them know of the situation. Never attack back.
  18. 18. If You Follow These Rules: • You will be both a courteous and delightful citizen of the information super highway!
