Transcript of New Age Etiquette

Today, people rely on email, texting, social media, and phone usage to do everyday activities and keep in touch with loved ones. However, because this technology is so new there are not many well established and commonly taught rules on the proper time, place, circumstances, and ways in which to use these technologies. In this presentation, I will be outlining some rules of technological etiquette.
Email Etiquette
Professional, workplace, personal, and school settings:
give the email an appropriate, correlating subject; use the subject field
address the recipient formally using Mr., Mrs., Miss., etc. or with their preferred title
promptly reply to all emails unless specified otherwise
traditional grammar, spelling, and punctuation should be used throughout the entire message
keep email content appropriate; do not use slang or slander
keep the email precise and to-the-point
signal the end of the email with a salutation
keep in mind that emails can be forwarded and published, so appropriateness and avoiding wordiness in messages is important
always proof read before sending
Texting Etiquette
Professional, workplace, personal, and school settings:
keep messages short and to-the-point
do not send messages that can be misconstrued or that could have the tone confused; call instead in these circumstances
do not use slang
keep large conversations and decision making for when you are taking face-to-face
do not text while in meetings, during class, when talking in-person, or during your shift at work
text before the recipient's bed-time
do not leave your recipient waiting for long periods of time during a conversation
be sure to proof read your message before sending it
Social Media Etiquette
Professional, workplace, and school pages:
fill out your profile thoroughly with accurate information
use a separate account to communicate with friends and family
do not be pushy with friend requests if you purely want more business or answers about classroom material
be sure to proof read your posts before posting
Personal pages:
do not post information that could offend your friends or family; if you would like to post offensive information be sure that you specify who can view it and who cannot by altering settings
use a separate account to conduct business and communicate with teachers, classmates, and co-workers about information inside of the workplace and classroom
be sure to proof read your posts before posting
Cell Phone Etiquette
Professional, workplace, personal, and school settings:
be sure to use your cell phone only when you are not engaging in direct face-to-face conversations, unless your conversational partner deems it appropriate
turn off your cell phone when asked
stay away from people when talking on the phone in order to avoid distractions or distracting others
do not talk about personal details or reveal your conversational partner's personal details when others can hear or see the information
try not to multitask; it may lead to an interrupted or distracting conversation with misconstrued information
do not use your phone during a meal or in a designated quiet area where it could bother people, unless told otherwise
Take some time to think about the rules that are outlined in this presentation. Take in to account which rules you break and which you follow. Why do you presume that you break them? Why do you presume that you follow them? Do you think it is necessary to follow such rules? Why do you think that it is preferred that people use proper etiquette when using technology? The rules that you commonly break can easily be fixed with the formation of an alternative habit. Decide what you can do to improve or maintain your etiquette and/or how you can inform others around you of the etiquette that is proper when using technology.
New Age Etiquette
By: Cheyenne Carney
Designating five minutes per day during one of your interactions to pay close attention your own and your conversation partner's technological etiquette can help you realize the good and bad habits that you engage in.
Look over your news feed on Facebook or updates on your Instagram. Notice any improper language, spelling errors, grammar issues, etc. Try avoiding these mistakes in the future by practicing posting at least one completely proper post or update per day.
Try sending an improper email to a close friend. Notice how they respond. Now send a proper email to the same close friend one day later. Notice again how they respond. Are there any patterns in how they respond to you? Sometimes your proper language usage can inspire others to also use proper language.
