Online etiquette will continue to change as technology changes. The good news is that we will use this page to keep you updated!
The topic of online manners will continue to grow as technology expands. And, as technology grows in importance in our everyday lives, so will the importance of using proper etiquette.
I had a co-worker at a previous job that would always type his emails in all capital letters. In the online world, typing an email in all caps signifies that you are angry and it is the equivalent of yelling in an email. People would receive his emails and wonder why he was always so angry. However, there was something that they did not know...
He had vision problems and typing in all capital letters made it so that he could see the font. He did not know that people stayed away from him, because they thought he was angry. He also did not know that there is a simple solution; increase the font size and it would have made things better for everyone.
