Netiquette


netiquette

Etiquette on the internet is also known as "netiquette" and is used during instant messaging, chat rooms, social networking sites, email and blogging. The main purpose of netiquette is to create a human element in the communication since reading the written word does not show the writer's nonverbal body language.

Netiquette also reflects education and intelligence through everything your middle school teacher taught you in English, i.e., grammar, spelling, and punctuation. To express the nonverbal body language not only are photos used, but also emoticons. Emoticons can add emotions to your regular language and bring the communication to life. There are SO MANY emoticons and I actually find them fun to use. A few examples are:

:o)
A smiling face with a cute nose

Most people use as a smiling face


=)
Another smile

And yet another smile minus the nose

A sad face

I also use ALT codes extensively, but that's another post by itself!

Netiquette is important and will reflect your personality throughout all your communications on the internet. Keep it active and interesting by learning a new word...or should I say a new face? How do you like my bouffant?
