"Use social media for good and lift others up, not tear them down. Stay on the high road. Keep your peace" - Germany Kent

Stay on topic

Don’t post irrelevant links, comments, thoughts, or pictures


Don’t type in ALL CAPS!

If you do, it will look like you’re screaming

Don’t write anything that sounds angry or sarcastic, even as a joke

Because without hearing your tone of voice, your peers might not realize you’re joking

Respect the opinions of all

If you feel the need to disagree, do so respectfully and acknowledge the valid points in other people argument. Acknowledge that others are entitled to have their own perspective on the issue.


Be brief

If you write a long dissertation in response to a simple question, it’s unlikely that anyone will spend the time to read through it all

Don’t badmouth others

You may disagree with their ideas, but don’t mock the person


Quote few lines

If you refer to something other people said earlier in the discussion, quote just a few key lines from their post so that others won’t have to go back and figure out which post you’re referring to


Check the most recent comments

Before you reply to an older comment, check always most recent comments since the issue might have already been resolved or opinions may have changed
