How will you write your online presence?
Will you use acronyms (e.g. BFF, NBD, etc.)?
What sources should be checked before you make a statement?
How can you avoid making offensive value judgments?
How can you "write" out your profile with visual cues that communicate what you want?

Consider civic practices of traditional citizenship before you post.
Don't let the illusion of distance or anonymity relax your standards of communication. And remember Read. Read. Read. To stay informed.
