Netiquette Do's and Don'ts
Jan 8, 2010
Netiquette is the millennium’s modern take on our classic rules of etiquette.
In today’s busy world, we generally find ourselves sending a Blackberry message while sitting at lunch or sending an e-mail from our iPhones while driving to our next meeting.
It is not that we, as young professionals, have gotten lazy or do not respect the traditional means of correspondence. It is simply that we have embraced technology and use it to our advantage.
This all seems well and fabulous, but often times one’s e-mails, messages via Facebook, Blackberry, Myspace, tweets, or personal/business blog may come across non-professional.
Join Eileen Soisson and gsSCENE to learn how to better represent yourself and your company over the Internet.
Her class “Netiquette Do’s and Don’ts” will be held Jan. 26 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., at Springmaid Beach Resort in Myrtle Beach.
Eileen Soisson has been in the business of training people of all ages on etiquette in the workplace and at the scholastic level for over 15 years.
At the close of our conversation, I asked her what the number one disadvantage of cyber communication in the workplace she said without a doubt it’s Facebook.
Often times, Facebook is more important than a resume or may even serve as one’s resume.
On several occasions, jobs are not offered sometimes even lost as a result of inappropriate materials being posted by not only you, but by your friends.
