    Digital Etiquette
    Digital Etiquette or netiquette is a basic set of rules you should follow to make the internet a better place for other people and yourself. When you instant message, chat, or email someone over the internet, that person can't tell if your just joking because they can't see your face. Don't say stuff over the internet that can be taken the wrong way or can hurt someones feelings. To practice good etiquette, or netiquette as its sometimes called, is simple:- treat people how you wish to be treated: with courtesy and respect. People know these rules but most of the time don't follow them while on the internet. The internet takes over some peoples lives and people can get brain washed so easily when on the computer. Hacking other computers, using bad language, downloading illegally, and plagiarism are examples of having bad or no etiquette when it comes to the internet.

    Etiquette: Who uses it?
    Etiquette is used by people all over the world. In the 1800’s, Etiquette was obligatory. If you did not have propriety or manners then you were considered a disgrace and a street rat. Nowadays the formal teaching of proper etiquette is used mostly by wealthy and important people. But in some homes, you can also encounter it. Etiquette in some religions is a rule. That means a Muslim will have a different etiquette than a Buddhist. People who want to be successful in life also have a proper etiquette. That is why most people have a proper etiquette.
    ...
    it used?
    When you use etiquette, it shows propriety. On the internet, people use etiquette to be respectful and appropriate. Also when you are in a computer lab with others, if someone does not log off, instead of hacking them you can kindly log off for them. People have etiquette to maintain respect in society. Etiquette is normally used because people need to respect each other. When you have a good etiquette, people show you respect and feel more comfortable around you. It is used to be sophisticated and not rude and disrespectful. But sometimes the opposite of etiquette is used which is rudeness and a lack of tact. This is found especially in groups of teenagers who use it to look cool around friends. This is not right. Someone could get physically or emotionally hurt. This is why etiquette is used.
    Etiquette: When is it used?
    Etiquette mainly appears when someone has guests, meets with other people, or during meals. It is normally found in a social group. Friends use etiquette around each other to gain a better name. Etiquette is also used when greeting another person. The better you greet someone, the better they’ll think of you. Being proper around human beings when they are at your home or you’re hosting a party improves their opinion about you. Etiquette is also used during meals. Normally during meals with you family, people do not burp or make rude noises. They sit calmly and eat with the occasional polite conversation. This is when etiquette is used.

    To avoid these kinds of consequences you must avoid downloading illegally. I suggest that you follow the ways on avoiding these sort of consequences.

    ...
    For example when two girls are taking pictures of themselves on the locker room and there are girls changing without any clothes on behind them and they post those pictures of the girls behind them that are naked without their permission. Another example is if you do something very funny and one of your friends got you on video tape and he goes and posts it on YouTube without your permission and then people start making fun of you and you don't know what they are talking about until you see it. This has happened many times and it has ruined peoples lives.
    Digital etiquette is the standards of conduct or procedure. Many technology leaders believe this is one of the most pressing problems of the digital citizenship. Teachers from schools see the inappropriate behavior and try to teach the students how to use digital etiquette correctly. Outside of schools, digital etiquette is ignored completely. Of course, inside of schools students follow rules to avoid many inappropriate behaviors. Teachers try to teach students to become responsible digital etiquette citizens in school as well in the society.

    4. Avoid trailing off. If you stop responding to somebody all of the sudden they might think you’re ignoring them. If you have to go and do something say “BRB” or “one sec”. It will calm any worries, which the person has, who you are communicating to.
    5. Don’t post people’s photos without their permission. Somebody might have a religion where they're not allowed to have they're pictures online.
