Netiquette by Mind Map: Netiquette

1. Netiquette is short for "Internet etiquette."

1.1. Just like etiquette is a code of polite behavior in society, netiquette is a code of good behavior on the Internet.

1.1.1. This includes several aspects of the Internet, such as email, social media, online chat, web forums, website comments, multiplayer gaming, and other types of online communication.

1.1.1.1. The Internet provides a sense of anonymity since you often do not see or hear the people with whom you are communicating online. But that is not an excuse for having poor manners or posting incendiary comments

1.1.1.1.1. While people may feel like they can hide behind the keyboard or smartphones and freely post harsh remarks on someone it can't change the fact that they are still the one who publish it. And once the sense of anonymity is lifted you need to face the consequences of your own action.

2. Here are some example of rules to follow for good netiquette:

2.1. 1. Avoid posting inflammatory or offensive comments online (a.k.a flaming). 2. Respect others' privacy by not sharing personal information, photos, or videos that another person may not want published online.

2.1.1. 5. Don't troll people in web forums or website comments by repeatedly nagging or annoying them. 6. Stick to the topic when posting in online forums or when commenting on photos or videos, such as YouTube or Facebook comments.

2.1.1.1. 9. If someone asks a question and you know the answer, offer to help. 10. Thank others who help you online.

2.2. 3. Never spam others by sending large amounts of unsolicited email. 4. Show good sportsmanship when playing online games, whether you win or lose.

2.2.1. 7. Don't swear or use offensive language. 8. Avoid replying to negative comments with more negative comments. Instead, break the cycle with a positive post.
