The major rules of Netiquette.
Do you always follow them in your cross-cultural communication? I suppose that it is needless to say what Netiquette is. It is popularly believed, that Netiquette is the etiquette of cyberspace, that is the world wide web’s culture. To the best of my knowledge, these are forms required by good breeding or prescribed by authority to be required in all aspects of our social and official life. Thus, Netiquette is a cultural and consequently a cross-cultural phenomenon, when viewed in the aspect of communication with representatives of various nationalities, cultures & subcultures as well. In order to avoid conflict situations when holding an on-line conversation with foreigners, one should keep in mind some rules, which are of a great value for one, who is yearning to become a picture of cross-cultural competence within the WWW. By and large do unto other people as you’d have others do unto you. When being on the point of pressing the button and sending the message – think over such a detail – Would you say it to the person’s face?. If the answer is no – retype and reread. Repeat the process till you feel sure that you’d feel as comfortable saying these words to the live person as you do sending them through cyberspace. Know where you are in the cyberspace. When you enter a domain of the cyberspace – look around, read archives and thus lurk before you leap. Respect other people’s time and bandwidth. Mind people’s time they spend on reading your messages, so it wouldn’t be spent in vain. Make yourself look good on-line. Take advantage of your anonymity. Do your best to be a polite and easy-going interlocutor. Know what you are talking about and make sense in order not to become a black sheep. Share expert knowledge. Never be afraid of sharing your own ideas and surveys – perhaps you are the next to be quoted and referred to? Help keep flame wars under control. Keep your emotions

    Netiquette Online Communication vs. Face-to-Face Different forms of online communication are becoming ever more popular, somewhat phasing out face-to-face communication on certain levels. Face-to-face communication involves several factors: body language, different facial expressions, the tone of one’s voice, and of course, spoken words.

    Jessica Steffani SOC 341 Netiquette 2 February, 2013 This is the first time I have heard the term Netiquette, and I was not aware that it had so many components. For instance, posting commercial messages to non-commercial newsgroups, posting commercial email to non-commercial mailing lists, and sending commercial email unsolicited to private organizations or people. This was one etiquette I found very useful. On Albury.net it states that for interactive services to first listen to a channel first…

    Netiquette has several different meanings, definitions, and interpretations between people. It can either have the literal definition or it can be someone’s concept of what they think it means, to me whether the person uses their definition or the literal one is what makes them have the “Netiquette” factor on their side. As an example to my previous statements everyone has a different spectrum of what they believe is netiquette or not, and what they use as netiquette. To me you never want to lead…

    * We should follow the rules so that we can maintain peace and organization within our society, economy, and even our country. Without rules no one would be able to work together. * Two different kinds of people can be heard to utter that question, "Why have rules?" One of them does not believe in rules; the other believes in rules and adds a few more words to the question, "Why have rules, if you are not going to enforce them?" I would like to examine both sides of this argument. Many people…

    Classroom Rules: 1. Be prepared for each class (I promise to show up dressed and ready and expect the same from you. The naked mental image of me lecturing will now haunt you for the rest of your days). 2. Show respect for all people, their opinions, beliefs, religions, etc. I enjoy a good discussion, but I will not tolerate rudeness or disrespect for others (a good discussion means that you use Critical Thinking Skills combined with facts and support while refusing to use flawed logic or name-calling)…
