On the topics of Etiquette and Netiquette

Manners are not dead. They're just, well... evolving. And integrating the do's and dont's to everything, from cellphones to Twitter and Facebook.

How's your Netiquette doing?

Etiquette is actually making a glorious come back. Jane Pratt says “The return of etiquette is in part a response to the harshness of the interactions people are having in the digital sphere. Nice is very cool right now” she adds.

The trend is also catching up in the publishing industry. Christine Carswell confirms: “Etiquette is a popular publishing subject right now because, yes, it’s true, good manners never go of style."

"The fastest-growing area of social advice is the Internet itself, and the proper displays of what’s been termed “netiquette.” A new generation of etiquette gurus, good-manner bloggers and self-appointed YouTube arbiters is rising to make old-fashioned protocols relevant to a new generation."

"There are YouTube videos on using emoticons in business e-mails, being discreet when posting on someone’s Facebook wall, limiting baby photos on Instagram, retweeting too many Twitter messages and juggling multiple online chats."

Here are a just a few:
. How to shake hands      . Facebook manners
. Twitter etiquette           . Work e-mail etiquette
. Cellphone etiquette       . Gym etiquette

Maybe in the long run will we see a shift in some behaviors.

Have a wonderful day,
