Electronic manners

We now have all these gadgets that keep us moving along. E-mail, texting, Facebook, etc, etc.

It’s all about being in contact 24/7. But sometimes when we get an email or text we get confused and frustrated. We don’t understand why the text was sent or what the senders are even trying to say.

Miscommunication happens all the time. Have you ever sent a text and out it went and oops, “I didn’t mean that”?  But it’s gone out to the world. So much of our intent is lost with our gadget messaging.

So here are some ideas for manners on our devices. These are great ideas that you should take to heart before during and after you text, email, pin or whatever you do on your devices.


4. Put your name on everything.

Don’t hide behind some anonymous screen name. Be up-front about who really you are.

All this media stuff is about communication so be honest about who you are and what you really want to say.

Your name gives your media communication integrity and opens doors to further talk.
