    One thought on “Emily Post's Manners in a Digital World: Living Well Online”

    1. When I first saw the title "Manners in a Digital World", I thought "oh this is going to be good" and immediately thought of a number of people who could use a dose of manners in their digital communications. Of course, we all assume that we're behaving appropriately and that it is others who need help :) We can all cite examples of misuse and digital tools: the person yakking on a phone in the bathroom stall next to you, the colleague who takes phone calls from his wife during a meeting and disc [...]

    2. This is not a read through the whole book type of book. I enjoyed flipping through the chapters that were interesting to me. It discusses questions about how to act on social networking sites, etiquette about texting in public, and some email information. Generally, this is a book to remind us of some common sense and general decency.I wanted to get this book because I have students that are getting ready to go into the workforce. Most teenagers don't think about their social networking sites wh [...]

    3. There IS Emily Post for that!Often, the digital age of social media leaves traditional manners behind, having little or no relationship to each other. And the speed at which change occurs doesn't help. So here is the surprise - Emily Post noticed. And as always, a set of guidelines is provided to assist in finding the boundaries, let alone setting them. Good point of view to tuck away.

    4. Very helpfulThe book gives lots of helpful advice on etiquette in a wide variety of digital settings. It also includes advice about how to stay safe online.

    5. The Emily Post Institute, the authority on all things etiquette, has just published an up-to-the-minute guide called Manners in Emily Post’s Digital World: Living Well Online. In keeping with the times, it’s the first-ever e-book to come out of the organization. The book’s author, Daniel Post Senning, has been at the helm of technology at the Emily Post Institute for years, building their first website, figuring out analytics and e-newsletters, and a WordPress blog to answer etiquette ques [...]

    6. When reviewing a book such as Manners in a Digital World, I want to be careful not to be rude. But you may be, like I was, wondering who Emily Post is and why she gets to write about manners. That is, you'll be wondering that if you are among those born after 1960, the year Emily Post died.But as you can find out here, Emily Post made a name for herself by writing books on etiquette. This book on digital manners takes that same spirit and brings it into our new digital age. Daniel writes about m [...]

    7. My number one take away:"Keep it positive. A recent Intel survey showed that the top digital sharing behavior that annoyed survey respondents the most was people who constantly complain. You don't have to be Mary Sunshine all the time, but avoid complaints, negativity, and rants. Be careful with sarcasm, too, as it doesn't always translate well online." (Pg.56)Skipped numverous sections relating to social media I don't participate in (twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.), but loved the guidelines [...]

    8. A lot about manners is common sense. And I the only one who's noticed that common sense is not so common these days?This book is a guidebook that I will be referencing and using with the young people in my life. And did I mention that I learned quite a bit (maybe it's just as fair to say that I had suspicions confirmed)?It's well-written, well-researched, and well-done. Highly recommended.

    9. As the author said - he wants people to see his recommendations as being common sense. Writ large, they were & I don't think there was a whole lot of information that was brand new or revolutionary. I'd say that it serves as a repository / single source guide to keep the things you should know / be doing in one handy, easy to find, location.

    10. Great refresher for anyone that's read an etiquette & manners book before. Especially useful for parents. Through your action, per this book, hopefully we can improve the rest of the world's manners.

    11. Useful info on the new world of cyber manners. Would be a great gift to go along with a new smartphone or computer.
