|Principles of Netiquette Cloud|
The Information Age is changing the basis of our economy by adding a new layer of Netiquette for informatization because intellectual property, information, becomes the basis. Information becoming the basis of the economy changes the sales process and market distribution of products. It makes consumer to consumer sales a larger portion of the economy. It makes them popular.
The internet is being used for e-commerce by everyone, which makes consumer to consumer sales a new market. This new market is the additional layer of Netiquette for informatization. Craigslist, eBay, PayPal, Square, and Half.com are popular consumer to consumer sales websites.
eBay, for example, allows consumers to sell brand name products in the same market as corporations. The physical product or service is not the basis of the transaction in the case of eBay. The basis of the transaction is the information provided by the seller. It is the Information Age. Netiquette is how you make sales because it denotes popular information dissemination techniques, rules of Netiquette.
