Netiquette (Online Etiquette)
When you write online, it’s sometimes easy to forget that there’s a real person on the other end of your message. It’s also easier to say and do things you might not say or do in person. Keep this in mind and treat others respectfully. PS – UPPER CASE LETTERS MAY MAKE SOMEONE THINK YOU ARE SHOUTING!!!
THINK! Before you post anything online…Think! T – Is it True? H – Is it Helpful? I – Is it Inspiring? N – Is it Necessary? K – Is it Kind?
