Netiquette Rules

Treat others the way you want to be treated.
-Persian Royalty


Contact is cultural. Contacts classify us. The aggregate of interaction is society as a whole. All of the expressions we make and share. Guidelines are central. Normal activity is appropriate behavior.

Extreme is out of bounds. Excessive is too much. Never is too little. Routine is comfortable.

Culture

Moral literacy is knowledge of appropriate engagement practices. Tips most of us follow. Techniques vary by category and site. Technology news moves society forward with informatization. Words order it.

The Golden Rule is the principle. It motivates our actions in the spirit of humanity. Remember to be human.

Moral Literacy

Netiquette Definition: Social guidelines of digital etiquette created for ethical behavior from popular conventions. A public policy document stating the intent of online interaction by an organization.

Wikipedia conceptualizes it as etiquette in technology. Organizations make their own policies.


Internet Etiquette

The rules of the internet are an ethical code. Etiquette rules enable effective communication. Digital Citizenship requires moral literacy to avoid behaving badly online. There are 10 core rules. Additional categories and sub-categories exist for methods of communications and domains.

Internet Etiquette

Social Media

We avoid behaving badly with good communications skills for User Generated Content (UGC). All media is social because a relationship is required for engagement. Domains that allow UGC are social media. We connect with our friends to share.

Social Media

Mobile

We use mobile devices for network connections more than any 'thing' else. How, when, and why we use them is a matter of digital etiquette. We can always use them. However it is not always appropriate.

Education

We must be taught right from wrong. This site is educational because schools refer the most visitors to teach it. Popularity was the intent, but education offers the most incentive. All these rules of the internet are now something we can teach and share.

Education

Internet Safety

We follow the rules of the internet for freedom from harm and risk more than anything else. Safety is often middle ground. Personal and computer security is central to online interaction techniques. The guidelines are juxtaposed with education in the middle.

Business

Data is becoming the basis our lives. Transaction processing, ecommerce, is central to our existence. Everything that assists the consumption of goods and services is part of the process.

Contact has new meaning. Electronic data transfer changes everything. We connect with each other by innovative means.

Words

Acronyms are everywhere. Many have multiple meanings. We need a reference to decipher messages in some cases. They are used to describe everything from personal messages to job skills and organizations.

Technology related job skills have recently been created. A reference is required because there are so many competing concepts. We cannot know some meanings witout a clarification.

Acronyms

Broad terms are used to describe computer classifications. There are some things we should know in general. The content we have in common bring us together.

The categories of tips for good behavior are concepts described by terms. Eventually single words may define them. Phone, for example, may eventually come to mean only a smartphone. Until then, we need some explanation and will always need definitions.
