Great Cause + Bad Twitter Etiquette

By in Main

I don’t write a lot about internet etiquette anymore (excluding the occasional snarky comment on Twitter) because I’ve learned to simply eliminate offenders from my viewpoint and move on to people are doing it better and sharing content in which I’m willing to invest time. I choose to only see @replies on Twitter that are [...]

I haven’t called out any marketing douchebags lately…

By in Main

Don’t randomly spam me on LinkedIn when I’m crankily hopped up on Vicodin for my bruised tailbone. Let this be a lesson to you all. ;) (Click to view full image) *happy sigh* I love an excuse to snark someone in the face.

“A friend thinks you’re too dumb”

By in Main

Wow. There’s a Facebook app that I won’t be adding any time soon. “A friend thinks you’re too dumb” is not exactly the way to draw me in to your magical app of wonder, geniuses. You app creators may have genius IQ scores but perhaps you’re missing some other vital brain noodle that doesn’t affect [...]

Multi-friending: Is it overload or no?

By in Main

Brandon asked me a question a while back that I’ve been meaning to address: A future internetiquette article I’d like to read is one about something I call “multi-friending”. Say you send messages back and forth with someone on Viddler, and they send you a friend request. Do you then add them on all the [...]

Netiquette massive fail by @FreshFocus

By in Main

That’s right. I’m doing an outright exposure of one particular Twitter user who incurred my wrath this evening with this tweet: I’m sorry, but does this comment really have a place in conversation after the age of twelve if a correct answer is given to a publicly posted question? Not to mention, the person behaving [...]

My Podcamp Ohio session is on video

By in Main, Videos

This was an unexpected surprise to find in my inbox from the Podcamp Ohio group this morning! :) I actually wondered who was filming my session at Podcamp Ohio session on Visibility & Internetiquette, and was confused when there was only an audio recording from our official session recorders, Coefficient Media. It turns out that [...]

Internetiquette – Twitter Masturbation

By in Main

I mentioned in my post about my Twitter rules that I have a low tolerance for Twitter masturbation (continually growing lower, I’m very close to just exclusively moving to Brightkite), but I realized that I haven’t really explained what it is, why it’s annoying as hell, or given examples of the offense in action. Here’s [...]

Internetiquette – Anonymous Commenting

By in Main

What is the appeal of anonymous commenting on a blog? I’ve only had two on this main blog, but the only time I’ve ever received an anonymous comment on the LiveJournal version of the blog was in an instance when the person leaving the comment did want their name attached to what they had to [...]

Email list = the new blog? I don’t think so.

By in Main

I’m curious about this (click image to see blog announcement): Is blogging dead? I really don’t think so, but there’s a lot of talk about Calacanis’ move to the newsletter as his new way of interacting with his audience. Steve Hodson thinks Calacanis is “full of shit” and Allen Stern of CenterNetworks did a write-up [...]

You did NOT even follow-spam me and then protect your Twitters to try and ENTICE me into following you back so that I show up as one of your followers and will then see that you are a spammer.

Twitter Spanking

By in Main

New policy instituted by myself, on behalf of anyone who’s tired of being followed by the following (henceforth named “follow-spammer”): Some loser who’s following 43,476 people and has 53 followers in a desperate attempt to be popular or get people to look at [insert something stupid here]. Someone who repeatedly unfollows and refollows you over [...]

Quick Tips – Favorites, Apps, Sharing, Friends, and Hiding

By in Main

Some quick tips from Internetiquette for the week: 1. Twitter Favorites – A lot of people commented recently that they don’t know what Twitter favorites are for and don’t use them. I use them frequently, for two reasons: First, to remember hilarious, over the top, absolute rockstar tweets, and second, to favorite tweets on my [...]

My Twitter Rules

By in Main

I am inspired to a do a write-up about my criteria for having someone on the list of people I follow on Twitter, because it’s important for me to be able to refer a person to my policy if they want to know why I don’t follow them (or do). Also, maybe it will help [...]

Scorned Lover Syndrome in Social Networking

By in Main

I have been introduced to a new phenomenon on the internet, which I have given a name and defined as: Scorned Lover Syndrome – receiving a sarcastic, chastising email or other method of communication as retaliation for not accepting a person’s friend request. I missed the part where I am suddenly required to explain my [...]

“Blog” – Now Taboo?

By in Main

Why is it suddenly cool to stop calling the blog portion of your website a “blog” and call it some other name that I won’t associate with blogging so that it’s twice as hard for me to FIND your blog on your website? It seems like it’s the new innovative thing to rename your blog [...]

Internetiquette: Where’d the Little Guy Go, Viddler?

By in Main

There is something that I’ve been missing from Viddler featured videos for a while now, and I’ve been trying to nail it down for a week or so and today it just hit me. Where did all the individual users go? Where are the everyday people that used to be featured? I’m not saying that [...]

Internetiquette – Facebook App Analysis (Part 2)

By in Main

I called the first part Facebook App Horoscopes, but really it’s my snarky take on app developers who create stupid crap that gets on my last nerve and has nothing to do with astrology, so I’ve modified the title for Part II. Here are some more responses to some of the apps on the enormous [...]

Moving: Internetiquette is heading home to Brandice.net

By in Main

I’ve struggled recently with this project and whether I took it in the best direction for me. It’s a topic that I want to talk about, but is something that I want to maintain a separate blog for? It’s really not. This topic is one that went from something I wanted to talk about anonymously [...]
