Safety when working together online

You should be as considerate of others when collaborating online as when meeting face to face:

  • Think before you post
  • Draft your message first – could someone misinterpret what you've written?
  • Keep your messages clear and simple
  • Consider the tone of the message
  • Don't use UPPER CASE (it indicates shouting)
  • Express emotions by using smilies
  • Give someone a call to sort things out if online is proving difficult.
  • Set the privacy and/or data settings to the preferences you prefer.
