Manners used to be something that happened in person, but today we conduct many of our relationships online and the rules and courtesies can be a little unclear.

• Introduction (2:36)
• The 4 Guidelines (1:53)

The idea that those “born digital” are quickly adept at learning new technology receives a partial reality check here. While many young people swiftly acquire the technical skills needed to scroll through thousands of configuration options, multitask, and multi-text on their mobile devices, a significant number still need help in the pre-technological area of manners. The proliferation of popular sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram has made it very easy for anyone of any age to unwittingly commit missteps that at best create awkward situations and at worst may ruin some aspects of their lives. Using live actors and real-life situations, this guidance production is organized around four principles related to online behavior: (1) “People come before technology,” (2) “Don’t interfere with others’ experiences or rights,” (3) “If you don’t want the world to see it, don’t put it out there,” and (4) “What happens online stays online. Forever.” Some of the advice here may seem familiar and obvious (posting embarrassing party pics may hinder future job opportunities); but other suggestions are both straightforward and thoughtful, such as thinking about others before posting (e.g., is this something that people might value or learn from, or is it just another food pic?). Although targeted at younger viewers, this primer on online manners contains valuable advice for all social media users. Highly recommended. Aud: J, H, C, P. (C. Block)

"Thoroughly accessible to viewers of all ages and backgrounds...this is a DVD documentary about the basics of courtesy when communicating online. Segments cover how to be polite when using a mobile phone, text messaging, and posting on social media. An excellent video to help students for today's increasingly interconnected world. Enthusiastically recommended especially for homeroom viewing in public schools."
