Three Ways of Online Etiquette When networking and browsing online you should always use online etiquette. Online etiquette by definition is proper manners when conversing between two or more people on an online service or the Internet. In this paper I will discuss three ways to have etiquette while browsing online or chatting on a network or browser. The first way to use online etiquette and the most important is to treat others the way you would wanted to be treated. Whether you’re on an online site such as Facebook or in an internet chat room, you should never say harsh words to people. The mistreatment of people over or through the internet is called cyber-bullying. The percentage of people that are cyber bullies are mostly teens. Cyber bullying is very dangerous and can lead to people having low self-esteem and thoughts of suicide. The best way to avoid cyber bullying is to be nice and treat others with respect. The second way to use online etiquette would be to watch what you post. I often times are on Facebook and browsing the web and see pictures that are often inappropriate. When you put something on the internet, it’s out there for the whole world to see. My saying for posting pictures is if you wouldn’t want your mom to see it don’t post it, because you never know who’s watching what you post. Always watch what you put because you would never want it to end up in the hands of the wrong person. Jobs and other career opportunities that people inquire on often look up to see what you have on your profile and that along with other things can base on whether you’re fit for the position. Since you never know who might be watching, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Also if you’re using online etiquette for business you should always respond as soon as possible. Often time’s businesses will lose a client because of the time they take to respond.
