Be gracious with your gadgets

It’s easier to be unintentionally rude when you aren’t communicating face to face. Although technology has made communication easier, respect and etiquette don’t always translate.

“A recent Intel survey found that 9 of 10 Americans report they’ve seen others misuse technology; 75 percent agree that mobile etiquette is worse than it was a year ago.

Technology etiquette is important to social relationships and the work environment.
