Tech Etiquette

We recently attended an interesting and inspiring event with a favourite networking group of ours, momcafe (www.momcafe.net) at which Sue Sinclair of Raspberry Kids (www.raspberrykids.com ) and Annemarie Tempelman-Kluit of YoYo Mama (www.yoyomama.ca) spoke of their experiences as entrepreneurs relying on modern technology to communicate and conduct their successful business ventures. Both web-based mompreneurs have embraced social media and offered many helpful tips which can be reviewed here:

This enthusiastic commitment by so many people to modern technology has us thinking about the inevitable changes in the rules.  As email, cell phones, text messaging, podcasts, blogs, Facebook, LinkedIn,  Flickr, Squidoo, Youtube, My Space and more are incorporated into our social and business lives we will see a dramatic evolution of media manners. As with any new behaviours, offensive and risky experiences will lead to new etiquette guidelines being created – irritating cell phone use leads to bans in restaurants for example.

The technology component of our Business Etiquette programming at The Image Builders continues to grow in popularity while a Google search for “technology etiquette” brings up over two and a half million references. As a modern participant in a newly tech-oriented culture be savvy and review your modern manners!
