Coursera Netiquette Rules

netiquette
I have learned a lot of Netiquette and other information from my Coursera courses. They have taught me on a college level. This does not mean they teach on a college level. It means I acquired the knowledge on a college level and they provided the resources.

Coursera provides a great education to students who take their classes. It is an online school that has a wide range of courses for many different academic levels and disciplines. Some classes are taught by prominent professors from prestigious schools. There are Netiquette rules students can follow to enhance the experience.

Online classes are self-directed learning. The skills learned are acquired based on the initiative of the student from the resources provided by the domain. It is up to the student and no one else. There are domains, teachers, and schools that provide better resources than others. Coursera is the best based on my experience.

The following Netiquette rules have enhanced my Coursera experience and helped me learn.

Coursera Netiquette Rules

  • LinkedIn – It is proper Netiquette to respond to accept friend requests from classmates on LinkedIn.
  • Groups – It is proper Netiquette to create and join groups on LinkedIn and Facebook related to your class.
  • Homework – It is proper Netiquette to complete assignments and quizzes by the ‘hard deadline’.
  • Video Lectures – It is proper Netiquette to watch the video lectures multiple times.
  • Quizzes – It is proper Netiquette to make several attempts to obtain a perfect score on quizzes.

Following these Netiquette rules will enhance your Coursera education for many reasons. Complete explanations will eventually be added to the official Netiquette code. At this time there are no immediate plans to add them.

Sky Rock Netiquette Rules

Sky Rock, is that a meteor or something?

Sky Rock is a French social network. It is social media. It has its own Netiquette. People within the network have a more open internet etiquette than most social networks I engage.

Currently, I have profiles in both French and English on it. There are a lot of profiles in Spanish as well. It, well, rocks. The internet etiquette is really cool. I like the attention I have received from women without chasing them to add me. Below are the rules for Netiquette in the SkyRock domain.

SkyRock Netiquette Rules


  • Text - It is proper netiquette to post short text blogs.
  • Link - It is proper netiquette to post links to web pages.
  • Article - It is proper netiquette to write articles.
  • Visit - It is proper netiquette to visit profiles of people you do not know.
  • Chat - It is proper netiquette to chat with others online through the domain.

These are the basics. I encourage everyone to have fun on this network. For me it was a reach outside my comfort zone that has been received well.

The Golden Rule App

Applying the Golden Rule to everyday life is not a software application. It is an application of the human condition because 'actions speak louder than words'. Treat others the way you want to be treated is the Golden Rule. This is the basis of Netiquette as well.

I learned the Golden Rule from my Mother. My Grandfather, Arturo Raya, taught me that I was Persian Royalty. Princeton University teaches that the Golden Rule civilized humanity and was created by Persian Royalty. My reference is my family.

The Golden Rule is to treat others the way you want to be treated. 'Share and share a like' is an old saying. I do not know where it came from, but it is a good example of an application of the Golden Rule to the internet. I know because my social network contacts like the statement.

Sharing with people in reality and online is an application of the Golden Rule because we naturally like to receive things and naturally feel obligated to return the favor. In reality things are durable goods and information or services. Online things are the information stored in computers or the Internet of Things (IoT). Sharing in reality is similar to sharing online, however online sharing is limited to information only. 

The natural feeling to return a favor is social and psychological. The strength of the feeling depends on how connected we are to people who feel the same way. The greater community follows the rule of reciprocity or Golden Rule. Communities within the greater community practice it to varying degrees. 

It is a general rule that applies over time. Sharing today does not guarantee a return tomorrow. It guarantees that you have built up goodwill with those you have shared with. In return people will share with you. They may not always share the same things, but it makes life easier online and in reality when people share. The application of the Golden Rule is cooperation.

New Netiquette Rules for Selfie's

A selfie is a picture of one's self taken by one's self. Usually, selfie's are taken with mobile devices, smartphones and tablets. However, you can snap a selfie with a desktop or a regular camera.

I made new Netiquette rules for selfie's in light of a recent study by Avast that found mobile devices do not delete data, pictures, when the factory reset button is used. I already new this because I use the Factory Reset button often on my mobile devices. I found a couple of selfie's on my Kindle Fire that I previously deleted. I don't even know how I found them. Kudos to Avast for doing the study.

Avast is an antivirus company with over 25 years of experience. I had the experience of finding a selfie that was supposed to be deleted, but did not have the courage to tell the world. The study found many naked pictures of people on discarded smartphones.

Avast is a great company for doing the study. They have free antivirus software. Feel free to get the application for desktops and mobile devices from my Informatization Global App Store in the Utility section (It is the first app in the section). 

New Netiquette Rules for Selfie's
  • It is proper netiquette to post selfie's in social media.
  • It is proper netiquette to text selfie's to friends and family.
  • It is proper netiquette to take selfie's with your clothes on.
  • It is proper netiquette to ask permission before taking a selfie with someone else.
  • It is proper netiquette to encrypt mobile devices before a factory reset to make data unreadable.

I saved the best rule for last. Please practice proper Netiquette

Ning Netiquette Rules

Ning is an educational platform for social media. It is a content management system kind of like WordPress for education. Really it is more of a bare bones social network that many people use in the educational community. I have accounts on at least three different education networks that use Ning. They are all for teachers. 

Using Ning to engage teachers about netiquette has led me to create my own netiquette rules for the site.

Ning Netiquette Rules

  • It is proper netiquette to reach out to teachers to make friends. Request friendship from people you do not know.
  • It is proper netiquette to connect your blog to your profile through an RSS feed.

  • It is proper netiquette to create a discussion forum for questions about education.

Evidence Of 4 and 14 Amendment Constitutional Violations

I have been out of work for so long, Self Employed, that I feel that I have to explain why. It is not that I am not working hard to make money and looking for a job. The evidence speaks for itself. In legal terms, Res Ipsa Loquitor. There is more of an explanation about how this evidence fits into a case I am filing against the United States in the About section of my website. Basically, I got fired from my last job because of unconstitutional and criminal activity by the United States government. I feel that the list of false charges online is further inhibiting me from finding a new. This feeling is something I am working to overcome. These documents prove the United States is not sovereign.

Facebook Fan Page Netiquette Rules


Facebook Fan Pages have come a long way from their humble start. In fact, I was coerced by the coding to start one in the first place. Facebook Netiquette began with a simple Netiquette group that grew to over 1000 participants. Eventually, it turned into a Fan Page with one member in each of the two groups. Needless to say, Fan Pages are good netiquette now.

A Fan Page is not what it used to be. Now, third party companies can build applications to add tabs to a page. I sell my iRap music from SoundClick on my Nerdcore fan page. The Netiquette Fan Page has a Goodreads tab for promoting the Netiquette Book Series. Fan Pages are a whole new form of netiquette.

Fan Page Netiquette Rules

  • It is proper Facebook Fan Page netiquette to add and explore tabs in Facebook Fan Pages.
  • It is proper Facebook Fan Page netiquette to receive updates from pages in your News Feed.
  • It is proper Facebook Fan Page netiquette to look for content to like.
  • It is proper Facebook Fan Page netiquette to provide positive feedback about posts.
  • It is proper Facebook Fan Page netiquette to share Fan Pages with your contacts.

Informatization Netiquette Rules

Last night I realized that the West was deliberately underdeveloped when it comes to Informatization. I am not sure why. The Information Age does pose the risk of unrest to corrupt governments because knowledge is power. 

Once everyone has the information there will be world peace because violence is stupid. Heart rate monitor watches, eco-friendly products, and other trends of the Information Age show a clear movement toward peace and equality. Are you a Vegan? 

Informatization Netiquette Rules
  • Main Stream - It is proper netiquette to wait at least one year after release to purchase large scale new technology.
  • Beta Testing - It is proper netiquette use new technology products in a limited fashion if at all.
  • Safety - It is proper netiquette to use new technology for safety purposes as well as entertainment purposes.
  • Encryption - It is proper netiquette to use digital products that encrypt communication.
  • Training - It is proper netiquette to read the user manual and test technology properly before use.

Everything is new and I like using it, but I exercise a little caution. For example, I have a tablet, but it's a Kindle Fire HD. The apps in the Amazon App Store for my device pose less of a security risk to my data than any other tablets app stores. Refurbished products are usually such great products that it pays to refurbish them.

In conclusion, let's have fun and work together. That is the promise of world peace. Full engagement of ourselves and our resources. Knowledge is power for personal productivity and choice.

OK Cupid Netiquette Rules

I found the website OK Cupid with a Google search because I just felt like I was missing something when it came to dating website netiquette. After seeing the site in search results and news articles I remembered seeing an advertisement for it. OK Cupid is a free dating website that I do not use frequently. It is a site with a lot of good press.

I have a few simple netiquette rules for the site since I have only just begun to use it. They may change.

OK Cupid Netiquette Rules

  • Questions - It is proper netiquette to fill out questions until you reach a 90% match.
  • Quizzes - It is proper netiquette to create quizzes for potential matches.
  • Pictures - It is proper netiquette to upload at least three pictures.
  • Rating - It is proper netiquette to give good ratings.
  • Be Nice - It is proper netiquette to share encouraging words about appearance. 

I am a little turned off by the site because the match questions are endless. I tried to answer them all until I realized this.
