The 10 Commandments for the Digital Era
Is it just me, or is the Presidential race turning into a circus? We still have 8 months to go before the election, and it is already ridiculous. Especially on social media. My current news feed consists of more political rants than ugly baby pictures. And it is only going to get worse after the 2 parties pick a candidate. But, outside of all the political nonsense, people continue to break the rules of etiquette for being online.
BT.com recently did a study to lay down the proper commandments for the "Digital Era." How many are you guilty of breaking?
1. Don't overshare on Facebook.
2. Don't snoop through your partner's phone. But also don't make them suspicious by erasing YOUR text messages.
3. Don't post on social media when you're emotional or angry.
4. Don't hit "reply all" on a group email unless you really think everyone needs to see it.
5. Never send a text when you're drunk.
6. Don't use emojis in text messages or emails that are work related.
7. Always text someone if you're going to be late.
8. Don't wish close friends a happy birthday on Facebook. Call or text them.
9. Never use a text message to dump someone.
10. Never text someone bad news, always call.
