The Efficient Life of The Netiquette World Order

The efficient life of the netiquette world order is a joke analogous to the phrase the, "good life" and "new world order". We have more control over our productivity and waste than ever. 



The Efficient Life of The Netiquette World Order
From Efficiency

We can take leadership by using the internet for good things. To be more productive and less wasteful. It takes a conscious effort. The "i" in internet means that we are all leaders of our own teams. Friendship has new meaning. There are more ways to help. 


Efficiency Netiquette Rules

  • Update mobile apps once a week over Wi-Fi
  • Open and use free outlook and gmail accounts (download appropriate mobile app).
  • Make a calendar with reminders.
  • Become familiar with Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Visio.

Programmers make computing possibile. They build code that make us more productive and less wasteful. A 'good life' is achievable by more people than ever before.

"Things", computers with IP Addresses, are still working themselves out. Right now programmers are in the most demand. Innovation is everywhere. 

Calendar applications manage our time. Many free email applications have powerful calendar apps built in. They are accessible on mobile devices. 

An entire category of software is dedicated to making us more efficient. Productivity programs create files that we work with. This includes email, word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, and diagramming.  

These files are often used for personal and professional reasons to manage lives and businesses. Microsoft is the most popular provider. Their free and premium services are the industry standard. Google offers a free suite of similar products.


susatainability

Sustainability has created an industry of eco-products, healthy living, and conservation aided and assisted by computer technology. We are buying products made with less resources created from computer research and technology. 


Programmers are building pyramids of code. The resulting software makes us more productive and less wasteful.

These rules will help us reach our collective goals because we are connected. Efficient is the new easy. Hard work is discipline. Punishment is being eliminated. "Things" are making it more productive for us to be safe. 

Learn to program? Buy things online$ Participate in e-commerce! Practice good netiquette; D Work with as many people as you can to make your goals happen and help with our collective goals. The world we always dreamed of may become a reality in the Information Age.

Netiquette To Avoid A Connectivity Creep

Netiquette to avoid a connectivity creep refers to the time we spend online. You know when it creeps up on us to take longer than we first thought it would. 15 minutes turns into 2 hours. An hour turns into an all nighter.


Netiquette To Avoid A Connectivity Creep


Connectivity Creep Netiquette

  • Set alarms or timers.
  • Bookmark websites to revisit.
  • Short bursts of online activity. 30 minutes at a time.
  • Go online with a friend.
  • No music.

Stuff happens. We can easily get carried away with our online activities. It is all netiquette. We are designing electronics so that we can always be connected. That does not mean we always have to be engaged.

A connectivity creep is the total amount of time spent online longer than anticipated by incrementally increasing session time. Five more minutes until it turns into 3 hours total.

connectivity creep
From Time Spent Online Overtakes TV
This is not necessarily wasted time. It is unplanned. Being online may be better than reality. A really important reason could exist. 

Balance has to be achieved between the value of our online activity and personal connections. The internet is supposed to help us live our lives to the fullest. If it is not helping, it is not worth it.

Wasting time does have entertainment value. The connectivity creep does not discriminate between entertainment and employment. We often spend too much time working.

The cultural connection to our real and online communities is management. It benefits us to control ourselves. Be reasonable.

Make your best judgement about the time you spend. Compare the benefits and drawbacks. Don't let the connectivity creep bother you. Visit Netiquette.xyz. This is the discretion core rule redefined.

5 Netiquette Rules For Changing Domains

5 netiquette rules for changing domains are just the beginning. As it turns out, changing Universal Resource Locators (URL's) is the start of full fledge Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for many. Social Media and other accounts have URL's for which the rules may apply.


5 Netiquette Rules For Changing Domains


There is a lot to do. Google has four steps for submission of a change to the webmaster search console, which is one netiquette tip. 

5 Netiquette Rules For Changing Domains


  • Change page headers including metadata.
  • Change absolute references in links.
  • Implement redirects.
  • Submit change to Google Webmasters Search Console.
  • Share the new URL.

Changing online addresses may be done for various reasons. Following these steps will help old visitors find the new address. 

The new location often represents a maturation in web development. In my case it represents a beta site becoming an alpha site. There are only pages on the server connected to the menu hierarchy. No extras and experiments.

These guidelines will work for something simple or complex. For example, changing a Twitter handle. Sharing metadata includes it. No need to tell Google, but everything else applies. Following the conventions exactly is basic SEO required to change website locations. 

Do it when your ready. Be mature. Practice proper internet etiquette.

Optimization, Efficiency, Netiquette

Optimization, efficiency, and netiquette are the order of the Information Age. It's all Netiquette ; D, if you know what I mean. Semantics is everything because we optimize our lives for efficiency with netiquette by understanding what we mean.

The integrated challenge of information in transformation


Internet of Things


If we know what we are already thinking then we can use as few words as possible to describe it. The words we choose to describe 'things' is a matter of popular culture, netiquette. 'Things' are computers and computer processes. 

The Internet of Things (IoT) seeks to optimize our lives. Optimization is achieved for efficiency. Netiquette enables the process.

SolarCity Unveils ‘World’s Most Efficient’ Panel

Solar panels are my favorite example of Informatization. Informatization is the implementation of the Internet of Things. We are implementing solar panels on our 'things'. Computers are digital, electrical, and solar panels provide electricity.

Informatization


The next phase of human development is solar panels for electricity because computers use electricity and solar panels provide it. We are computerizing the world. Solar panels make it efficient.

Solar panels were not always efficient. We always knew the concept was efficiency even if they were not. Getting power from the sun instead of generating it is more efficient. 

The reason this is an example of the Information Age is because solar panels on the roofs  of residential homes is in striking contrast to the traditional one's. It looks different. Architecture is changing to accommodate our changing lifestyle.

We are becoming more efficient with electricity use. Solar panels are more efficient because technology has made it possible to capture more electricity from sun light. It has become Smart to use solar panels.

Netiquette


Just because it is Smart does  not mean it is appropriate. Early adopters are trend setters. The government is offering incentive for middle class homeowners. It is not quite 'normal' yet. 

It is normal for 'geeks' and 'penny pinchers'. The relative normalcy depends on our social connections. It is all network etiquette. Popular culture in large sub-groups of our population and the government support solar. It is a movement. Whoa!

A surreal moment in time happened when I saw solar panels in East Los, East Los Angeles. In that moment I realized what informatization was. A new normal where were all Geeks. 

Visit my alpha site, buy my books, and practice. We are transforming society. Go green and be cool.

12 Live Streaming Netiquette Rules

The impact of live streaming cannot be underestimated. It is good netiquette. This medium of communication has fundamentally changed society by exposing activity. The President of the United States admitted police officers are terrorists according to statistical evidence as a result of live streaming.




Police officers use it to solve crimes. The public uses it to police the police. These activities are at the outer boundaries because we are all supposed to follow the law.
12 Live Streaming Netiquette Rules

12 Live Streaming Netiquette Rules

1. Use A Good Connection

When using a mobile device to shoot video, go where the signal is strongest. Turning on Wi-Fi may allow us to use a free or open network. We may have to balance the strength of the signal with the angle of the shot when shooting live events because stronger signals make better feeds just as better shots do. From a desktop computer or laptop an ethernet connection is preferable.


2. Use Landscape Mode

Landscape mode shows a bigger picture than portrait. Our viewers want to see as much as they can. So, landscape is more engaging than portrait mode. 


3. Close Unnecessary Applications

Open applications may slow down a stream. They use memory and computer processing power. Closing them allows the video camera to function more smoothly.


4. Practice And Test

Practice taking shots. Knowing how to use our camera and practicing makes the video better. Testing features allows us to use them more easily.


5. Comment And Respond

Posting comments is a technique to get noticed by other viewers. Responding to comments is a method of engaging viewers so they come back. Interaction benefits the online image of all who participate, given everything is appropriate.


6. Post Announcements

Broadcasts must be announced to find an audience. Getting a large number of views does not happen by accident. It happens by great content being announced to social media friends on many platforms. Friends share. The audience grows. The content can take on a life of its own. Socially conscious content gets a lot of views.


7. Write A Relevant Description

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) plays a role in all online activity. Using long descriptions with relevant keywords and other content makes it easier to find. The easier it is to find, the more viewers will watch.


8. Make Long Broadcasts

Long is not usually a good thing in social media. It works for broadcasts. YouTuber Lilly Singh recently did a long live broadcast. If it were not long it would not have been found by me. I saw that she was streaming as a suggestion from YouTube after she had been at it for about an hour.


9. Say Goodbye

Use a closing at the end. This avoids an awkward closing. It can be used to encourage viewers to watch future broadcasts. A nice point of etiquette to show viewers your thinking of them.


10. Watch Other Broadcasts

To be good at anything we must learn from something. Watching others is a great way to learn how to make your content more engaging. See what you like. Emulate good techniques. 


11. Get A Good Picture

Lighting is key to a good picture. More light is always better than less light. Make sure that your subject is well lit. Shoot video of yourself and events in the best light possible. In general it is better to get closer to the subject than it is to zoom.


12. Expose Good And Bad

Sharing heartwarming video gets a lot of views. Exposing bad people gets a lot of views. A video of a child hugging a dog when no one was watching and running away after is all over the internet. I shared the video after viewing it myself. 

Showing heinous acts online motivates social change. There have been many protests against terrorism in the United States as a result of live streamed video. I shared a video of terrorism by the police myself. Expose the truth. Share.


Guidelines


These tips work for many live streaming services. Facebook Live is the target audience because it is the biggest social network. Periscope, YouTube Live, Hangouts, and Twitch users may benefit from these guidelines as well.

Expose the good and the bad is the moral of this story. Show our good sides. Expose the bad. It motivates social change for the better by bringing our collective consciouses together.

European Rules, Arab Etiquette, and Chinese Law

European rules, Arab Etiquette, and Chinese law. European countries enforce netiquette from the top down by holding companies accountable for their rules. Arab countries have police on the street to remind us to follow proper etiquette. China makes it law.

This has been my experience creating the cultural rules of the internet on my site. It feels different now that the migration to a new site has begun. 

As Brexit begins the world feels like it is coming together online. Independence is interdependence. Britain is using my site heavily again, which is why I knew the Brexit vote would win. The concept of internet etiquette is an online identity, freedom and independence.

European Rules, Arab Etiquette, and Chinese Law

Europe Rules


A French woman approved more rules than any single person as a Facebook follower. It is a joke of mine to say French Woman are controlling because the advice was very much appreciated. French officials raided Google's offices at the end of May.

Germany is an online powerhouse, uber haus. They have the most cultural opinions on this matter. Blogs are often written on the subject. They provide most of my inspiration for growth and development.

A recent blog pointed out that it is often up to the network administrator to regulate behavior. This led me to a novel idea. Given that some sites link to my rules for self enforcement, there may be an opportunity to suggest this to other sites. 


Arab Etiquette


Arab Etiquette


Arab countries are beginning to gain recognition in technology. A recent blog post by an Egyptian professor on Digital Citizenship is as good as any American teacher. Iran took third place in a robotics contest in Germany recently. 

These accomplishments or contributions validate me personally because an Egyptian woman taught me the most about computers. Iran has completely embraced working with the world since my lineage was posted on my website.

An Arab woman has written a book on the subject. It makes me feel great when people write a book about a concept created by me. I literally created Netiquette. As the site transitions to its new home it shows with the branded website.

Chinese Law

Chinese Law


As a fan of Kung Fu movies it tickles me that China is making laws that follow my rules. First it was a ban on bad words. Now it is verification of stories posted in social media. Google before you share takes on new meaning.

This new Chinese law has me reevaluating my own rules again. It got me thinking about the verification process. Is there a way to brand it in without using Google. In fact, Google is no longer a source for my online research.

Everyone

It troubles me that Africa is left out for whatever reason. It seems that we are all starting to recognize cultural norms. My new domain feels so legit makes me feel good inside. It may take a long time for me to get it to where I want it to be, but it is on the right track. 

We are on the right track. Freedom and independence from interdependence facilitated by network etiquette. There was fitting joke in the situation comedy television program Silicon Valley. An incubator owner tells a Chinese person living in his house that we do not have the same freedoms they do in China.

Let's all work together. Personally, I hope to upgrade my programming skills to upgrade my site. Check out my new domain and buy Principles of Netiquette.

3 Netiquette Reasons To Switch Domains

3 netiquette reasons to switch domains are the beginning of making the internet meaningful. A domain name that accurately represents the content of a website is good for everyone. It makes the world a better place because we can find the information we are looking for faster.


3 Netiquette Reasons To Switch Domains


There are many new domain extensions that will allow us to choose names that have already been taken. Feel free to check for available domains through my hosting service. XYZ is the most legitimate because the new parent company of Google, Alphabet, has one, ABC.XYZ

On Friday it was announced on the administrative netiquette blog that NetworkEtiquette.net was transitioning to Netiquette.xyz. The three reasons to switch domains are:

  1. Branding - A website with a name that represents its content instead of one that was the closest available builds a better brand.
  2. Search - Search engines rank websites with their names in the domain higher. There are case studies to prove how helpful it can be.
  3. Social Media - Cool names in links on Facebook and Google Plus get more clicks.

It may take some work to switch to a new domain. This is why we should do it now. The longer we wait the harder it gets.

Positive Communication, Netiquette, Adds Economic Value And Goodwill

Positive communication, netiquette, adds economic value and goodwill. The economic value of Netiquette is greater than Gold. The goodwill it generates is intangible because it enables so much goodness. These are big statements. 

Positive Communication, Netiquette, Adds Economic Value And Goodwill
From AfraidToAsk.com

It is not rocket science. Most people can understand how it is possible. It takes great leaders to make it happen. Teachers are the great leaders being referenced.

There are a couple of analogies and examples that come to mind. They come first for understanding. Then the two most effective tips in a general sense are shared.

Transportation and education are analogous to netiquette. It can even be compared to Great Britain in a sense. The British empire has given many uncivilized societies order to make them prosperous.

transportation
From JK Safe Logistics

Transportation


Steel was created to build a bridge across the Mississippi River. It changed America. The bridge made economic activity possible. Steel changed the construction industry.

Roads built to high standards enable more commercial activity than those with lower standards. It is a fact that faster delivery of goods and services allows us to consume more. We get it faster so we use it faster. Then we need more.

The internet is transportation for data. An information superhighway. Positive communication adds value to society in the same way products and services that meet government standards do. 

Without netiquette the information superhighway is a dirt road. There are a lot of bumps in the road. No real path.With netiquette there is a protocol for delivering effective information.

Network etiquette builds bridges across communication barriers. It delivers goods and services to communities. We can all work together.

Education
From LitSurge

Education


The value of education is intangible because it is so high. We need to be taught how to create goods and services. Colleges teach us how to do business. It takes a lot of education to get to that level.

College dropouts who create big companies hire people with college degrees. Putting a good public college in any area will make that community affluent. Not necessarily with private schools.

A good all inclusive education system provides the community with good people to make good things happen. Economic activity is a good thing. Education teaches good leadership on all levels in all things.

Network etiquette is educational at its core. It is a social code. Education is developed from a social code. For example, school is compulsory in the United States up to a certain level. 

Without network etiquette communication has no meaning. The more people that follow any given rule the more more meaningful the communication becomes. The more educated people there are the better a community becomes in many ways. It is the same with netiquette given education requires it and must teach it.


Basically


  • One topic per message. Misunderstandings become conflict. They prevent effective communication. It slows or stops us from doing things including fun activities and commerce. Multiple topics in a message are easy to misunderstand.
  • Create group techniques and share. Once we agree on the meaning of communication, we can build on that agreement to add value. Companies can create valuable culture with their mantras. Students can learn valuable lessons from their studies.

Positive Communication, Netiquette, adds economic value and goodwill. It is a plus. Share what you like online and tell us why. We may find agreement to build a relationship. Follow proper netiquette from NetworkEtiquette.net.

The Boundary And Format Of Good Netiquette

Content Marketing Books
The boundary and format of good netiquette has many parts. The rules of netiquette are central to our online activities. Boundaries and formats exist to keep the culture together.

Our professional lives impose a certain level of internet etiquette on our social media accounts for branding purposes. Creating content for the internet includes keeping the audience in mind as well as site search engines and internet search engines. 

When we start to stray too far from the center we need to bring our content back to it. This blog included. Bullet points and at least two works cited are at the center of it based on my education.

Boundary


The Boundary And Format of Good Netiquette
Boundaries vs. Expectations

According to a column in City A.M. by Debrett's, an English authority on etiquette, providing advice on the acceptability of online actions is a good thing. 

Boundaries can be set for effective communication and the company brand.

  • Social Media can be accepted at work or rejected by management.
  • Posts about the company may require approval.
  • Personal disclaimers can be used to lessen the impact of controversial or political posts.
There are some online communication mediums that require following the central rules of netiquette. Professional email rules apply to apps like Slack and WhatsApp. These apps may technically be social media, but they are for professional use as well.

Format


Formatting plays a large role in effective communication. According to a GSW Media blog post it makes navigation easier. Based on my own experience content without pictures and large fonts are not shared. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a formatting consideration as well.

Easy to read is easy to navigate. There are formatting techniques.
  • Pictures provide a SEO bump and contextual understanding.
  • Large font makes content easy on the eyes.
  • Bullet points are great for focussing on the main points.
  • Headings draw our attention to what matters to use most.
