yell – I should not type all texts in CAPS. Readers consider this as shouting
compelling them to ignore or belittle the message therein regardless of how
intelligent it may be. CAPS should only be used where appropriate. Even if I
have trouble with my vision, I should opt for an adjustment which cannot be
deemed as “yelling”.
sarcasm – I should always be polite in my comments because not everyone can
relate to my sarcastic ways. This is mainly the case since there are people who
do not know me personally. Such persons may miss the sarcasm and perceive me as
brevity and succinctness – I should make my messages short and straight-forward
to save time and attain relevance. Whether I am seeking clarification or
following something, my text should be direct and void of unnecessary
information. Direct messages and questions attract direct responses or
sharing – I should limit what I share online, particularly when it comes to
personal information. With the growing rate of cyber criminality, it is
important to be cautious, but this does not necessarily mean that the people I
interact with are criminals. The fact is that the information may land in wrong
is key – The anonymity associated with online presence may tempt one to be
impolite. I should not fall prey. Despite the anonymity, my personality is
attached to the comment or response I post. It is therefore impertinent to be
kind at all times. In the event when I am embroiled in a heated disagreement, I
should not resort to impoliteness. Important is to relax and compose myself
before hitting the reply section even if it means replying the following day.
It is worth the wait.
