The wonderful world of the Internet has given people a completely new way to communicate with others.

It is very important that a person learn to use proper communication online, to stay safe, meet quality people, avoiding those that have bad intentions and to get the best out of the Internet that they can.
The Internet has changed the way people converse with each other. It has also changed the way that people meet each other. While chatting online may be done in an informal way, with no more intentions than to have a chat briefly with a stranger; it can also sometimes lead to love online. With the onslaught of online dating sites, the number of people that have met online and it lead to a relationship is growing every day. While online, emailing and instant messaging with some many people, it is very important to use the correct communication online skills.

With communication online, a person ought to follow certain rules of etiquette. One should not immediately ask another a personal question. Most people surfing online are there to chat, not to inform others of their life story. If someone immediately asks numerous personal questions, these are the characteristics of the type of people who may be trying to obtain personal information for immoral purposes; such as computer hacking or identity theft. Many will be wary of a stranger online and being asked personal questions will make them feel uncomfortable. It is best to keep it simple at first; you may ask what they do for a living, what are their hobbies, etc. Anything to maintain a conversation lively and not scare someone off is appropriate.

Since the popularity of communication online, many people have taken to using short-hand when typing and they do not use correct spelling and grammar. This is acceptable in most cases, for example: using “luv” instead of the word love is universally understood. In addition, a quick initial such as “brb”, which stands for “be right back” is common and usually understood. However, for proper communication online, a person should not use an abundance of short-hand that will leave the other person bewildered.

Additionally, the use of web cams is quite popular now. Proper communication online includes not clicking on someone’s “view my webcam” without asking permission first. Most often, a person will feel offended that another wishes to see their image on the web cam without bothering to talk to them first. After chatting with someone for a while, the subject of exchanging web cam views is appropriate, but a person should by no means pressure another to do so.


Of course, there will be people who use the Internet and communication online for sexual purposes. If you are using communication online and simply wish to connect with others and have simple conversations, if a person begins to talk rude, use vulgar language or attempts to show you graphic images via their web cam: you should immediately close out the conversation window and add that person to your “ignore” list.

The world of communication online can be a great instrument to meet people, have great discussions and take pleasure in conversation with people located all over the world. It can be enjoyed best if a person is wary of others, keeps their information private and does not tolerate improper behavior.
