Transcript of Digital Etiquette
Digital etiquette is defined as "the standards of conduct expected by other digital technology users" (Ribble & Bailey, 2007).
The basic idea of Digital Etiquette is "treat others like you want to be treated."
Why is Digital Etiquette Important?
When you are on a digital device it is important to be careful about anything you say to someone else. No matter whether it is an email, a text message or a post on YouTube, what you say could seem more hurtful to people since they can not see the emotions behind the messages and may misinterpret the meaning. It is important to have proper etiquette to stop people from potentially hurting themselves from an ill interpreted comment. Remember anything you put on the internet is there forever, it can not be removed.
Keep emails short and to the point.
Have a informative subject line.
Have correct grammar and spelling.
Reread what you have written and think about if what you have said is appropriate.
Be courteous when writing to someone.
Why Should You Keep Your Computer Virus Free?
Anti virus software is expensive and so it is understandable that you would not want to pay a lot of money for something that you may not even need. The fact is however that if someone hacks any digital device, you do not want to be seen as the person that gave everyone else a virus. Also websites such as Facebook when hacked reveal personal information and give the hacker access to message your friends, coworkers, family members. This could potentially ruin your job and relationships as your coworkers etc. would have no idea that it was not you posting those messages.
Be a Good Digital Citizen!
Although your etiquette in the world of technology is not the only step to being a good digital citizen it is a step towards a better plugged in profile. Your digital experience will be better if you treat others how you would like to be treated, and you are courteous to everyone else on your network.
