Digital Etiquette: The importance in the digital world.

When thinking about proper etiquette, one thinks of manners and language, but in the digital world it is much more than that. You need to keep yourself professional, remember that your thoughts are not just a a representation of yourself, but also the company you work for. Be informative, not annoying, but don’t be scared to voice your opinion or someone else will beat you to it.

The digital world is a community, and in order to be respected in the community you must treat it like any other community. Respect is earned, to do so you must make powerful arguments using logic and ration rather than emotions and lies. A different opinion is not always welcomed, but that doesn’t mean you should shy away from voicing it. The digital community is the most diverse community in the world, as it has a global reach.

Creating a personal brands is a way to market yourself online. Most of the time after people meet they almost immediately search and find each other online, and when it has to do with business, it is vital that the first digital impression you make is a good one. Posting often and engaging with different social media sources is a good way to increase your personal brand along with digital reach. Linking accounts on social media allows for the greatest reach possible. In order to succeed on Social Media you have to think of your audience, and in order to do that you have to know your audience. If you are a very artisitic person you might use platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest rather than WordPress or Facebook.

I hope this helps you understand the importance of digital etiquette and why it’s so important in the digital world we live in.
