|Principles of Netiquette Cloud|
A Platform is a software application that allows users to work with other people. There are three types of software Platforms: Hardware, Operating System (OS), and Web Application. There are three layers of Platforms for your digital footprint to put your head in the clouds because Cloud Computing is the third Platform a user reaches to get on the internet. Hardware platforms are computers and standards by which they are manufactured. OS’s control the Hardware. Web Applications control the OS’s.
Hardware platforms are computers. Standard configurations include, desktop, laptop, tablet, and smartphone. The electronics are manufactured according to standards that allow OS’s to control their actions. Computers are designed to work with OS’s.
OS’s control computers. Windows is the most popular desktop OS. Apple has popular OS’s for desktops and mobile devices, Mountain Lion and iOS. Android is the most popular mobile OS.
|Netiquette - Internet Etiquette|
eBay, PayPal, Craigslist, and all the e-commerce domains with Netiquette rules are Platforms because they bring groups of people together to perform transactions. The transaction does not necessarily have to occur through the domain. This was the innovative idea behind the confident tone.
It is e-commerce even if your looking at the internet for product information. Complete customer care should be given at all points of contact, be nice. Come on, ain't Mario Lopez one of the nicest dudes. I cannot remember him saying anything bad about anyone.
Traditionally and in a metaphorical computer sense, a Platform is an elevated surface to stand on and that things are placed on or both. A platform is also an ideological policy of a group. These definitions lend themselves to a better understanding of the internet and Netiquette.
Our proximity is our platform because we can work with each other in reality. Domains who bring people together to work together can be platforms for the connections. It is all about working together and group ideology.
Group ideology is where Netiquette comes into play with Platforms. Groups are social classes. Platforms, domains, have user groups who work together. Since platforms are social because they have user groups, Netiquette applies. Netiquette is the social code of computers, which is the basic Platform. Most people use computers with internet connections, hence, Netiquette practically applies to the internet.
Cool dude knew that every domain is potentially a Platform if it is used correctly. I looked at him and got the feeling that he was as cool as Mario Lopez because I could work with him. After looking at his card, I noticed he works in an Office Complex where I have some office space. We already do.
