Netiquette in a nutshell
Netiquette is how you should behave on the Internet.
Rules, manners…these apply on the World Wide Web too..they’re not just for real life.
Things to ALWAYS Remember
While you may delete emails, photos, and posts, they can still exist on the Internet.
Something you may have emailed to one person, could have then been forwarded to dozens of people without your ever knowing it.
Don’t ever put yourself into a situation where you wouldn’t be able to fix the outcome.
Once web content is “out there,” it’s potentially out of your reach and control.
