Rule #7

Short: Learn the Lingo

Longer: Ok - vlogging, podcasting, webcams etc is growing - but almost all social interaction on the web is still via text based messages (such as mail, ICQ, post in forums etc). And, as in all groups of people, a slang is developed over time.

To better understand, and express yourself, learn that slang. Abbreviations, symbols and so forth are an important part that is needed when we interact without body language and the "hrmms" and "uhs" of the spoken language.

So, if you master the language, you will better be able to express yourself.

PS:Im not gonna explain any *lol* or :-) things here, 1- there is other websites for that and 2- they cange over time and between groups of users.
