  • Digital Communication and Etiquette
  • One of the best benefits of the internet is being able to talk to other people around the world. Even now, I am helping a friend learn good digital communication skills and digital etiquette through texting. You can learn along with her.
  • The first thing you need to remember, is that everything you say reflects on you. Comments you make online can lead to negative real-life consequences. To create a good impression, always be respectful.
  • So I should avoid posting comments that can be interpreted as bullying, racist, or sexist. I'll try to think of it this way: If I feel like I can show what I wrote to a parent, it is safe to post.
  • Yes, that's a great way to think of it.
  • So it is a part of good communication?
  • What is etiquette, and is it apart of digital life?
  •  Etiquette is the code of polite behavior. It is an important part of real life as well as online. 
  • Exactly! Digital etiquette overlaps with communication a bit, as it includes always being respectful, but it also includes some other things.
  • That's right! That is why you should always use proper grammar and punctuation when composing an email.
  • So emailing isn't as casual as texting?
  • For instance, when emailing someone, it is polite to respond within 24 hours. If they don't reply immediately, a polite follow up after a couple of days is okay.
  • Thank you! I understand now what proper digital etiquette involves.
  • Proper grammar and punctuation might not apply for more casual relationships, like friends and family, and that is fine. Just remember,when addressing someone you don not know or posting to a public domain, etiquette is crucial.
  • You are welcome!
