Online Etiquette Cheat Sheet For Facebook, Twitter, Email & IM

modern-online-etiquette-guide-header

There are plenty of online trolls out there who will make it their objective to lower your self esteem on the Internet. Sometimes it’s a way for them to get attention, and other times they simply want to get their message across. There is really no way to shield yourself from it. It’s everywhere, and that will most likely always be the case. If you want to make sure you don’t come across as an attention seeking troll, you might consider following some of the unspoken rules that have evolved on the Internet since its release. It’s not all that boring to learn them either since there is now a cheat sheet for modern online etiquette available.

This simple and straight forward online etiquette cheat sheet is quite interesting since it deals with etiquette for email, message boards, Facebook, Twitter as well as for instant messaging. Knowing a few things about online etiquette will definitely benefit you while you tread the Internet looking for information and interesting people to connect with. The great thing about cheat sheets is that you can print them out and keep them by your side in case you are unsure of anything, or if you just want to update yourself every once in while.

This cheat sheet doesn’t just contain good information, but it is also a little bit retro in the way it is designed. I got the distinct feeling of an old school bulletin board which you could connect to when you were young and surfed the web using 2400 baud modem. The retro colors help magnify that feeling which is a nice touch. If more people would take in the information on this cheat sheet, we here at Bit Rebels think the Internet would be a much more fun place to hang around on (more than it already is that is).

Help spread the word about this cheat sheet (by either retweeting it, sharing it on Facebook or just telling people about this article), and I am sure we will see some improvements even though they will be small steps in the beginning. The Internet itself wasn’t really a booming success when it first started. People had to ease into it, and the more people who joined, the more people wanted to check out what it was all about. Online etiquette should be like that as well. Let’s share it, and let’s use it!

Great article on etiquette online.
I am always faced with others who don’t understand that there is an art to online marketing or communication.
Great insight!
