Guests talk about technological rudeness, such as texting at social gatherings. We conduct many relationships online, where rules and manners are unclear.

Put people before technology. Do not interfere with other people's rights. Anyone may see anything you put online.

Communication (01:11)

In the past, people were forced to find something to talk about during awkward silence. Today the silence leads to phone usage.

Turn off your phone in settings where it would be disruptive, or follow etiquette when expecting an important call. Respect people's privacy when taking pictures.

Avoid texting when you should interact with the people you are with, even if your friends tolerate it.

Written Online Messages (01:36)

Remember that anyone may see your written messages. Check for auto correct errors. Avoid angry messages, forwarding private messages, and sexting. Never end a relationship by text.
