The 6 Rules of Online Etiquette
The staff at Buzzfeed came up with a bunch of online etiquette rules. Do you agree with any of these?
The staff at Buzzfeed came up with a bunch of online etiquette rules. Not all of them are great, but see if you agree with these:
- If someone sends you a meme or a funny you’ve already seen, “haha” it anyway. Saying “yeah, i already saw that” just seems kind of rude. 2. When you put someone on speakerphone, give them a heads up if someone’s with you. We’ve had speakerphones for a long time, but people still don’t follow that rule. 3. N more than two food photos at the table. If you’re someone who posts photos of meals, the limit is one photo, and one more if the first one was blurry. 4. “Deep likes” are creepy. That’s when you go in and like a photo from six years ago. You’ve obviously been scrolling through their feed way too long. 5. This one might not be that serious but you should unfollow your friends’ exes out of solidarity. The exception is when it’s amicable, and they’re still friends 6. Never text just the word “hi” or “hey.” It’s a waste of time and creates an annoying extra “ding” for them to deal with. In general, you should combine more of your short texts into one longer text.
