SocialMunch Chatiquette - Chat Room Etiquette

Just like in real life, there are some things that you do and some things that you don't do and this also applies when in chatting. If you are new to chatting, reading the following will help you understand the unwritten rules or "etiquette" of chat and help you to communicate with others.


Don't talk in CAPITAL LETTERS

In a chatroom, using a lot of CAPITALS or UPPER CASE is seen as shouting. Many people find it annoying when a user types entirely in capitals.

Don't enter chatroom and then leave without saying something

It is considered impolite to enter a chatroom and then leave without saying something. Saying something like 'hello' is being polite.

Be patient

Try to be patient and wait if a user is slow to respond to you during a conversation. Remember that this is a person and they may have other things to do at the same time.

Be friendly. Be polite. Be considerate

Remember that these are real people you are chatting with. They may have different opinions to you and come from very different cultures. Treat them properly and respect their opinions, and they will treat you the same.

Stranger Danger

Never give out your email addresses, phone numbers, ID's or similar to someone in public chat rooms! Giving out such details leaves you open to all types of possible trouble.

Chat Room Safety Tips and Advice

#1 Be careful who you trust online and remember that online friends are really strangers. People online, no matter how long you have been talking to them or how friendly they are, may not be who they say they are.

#2 Get away from an unpleasant situation. Simply logout of the chatroom (this just takes one click) and will save you from silly arguments and similar with other chatters.

#3 Meeting someone you have been in touch with online can be dangerous. If you feel that you ‘have to’ meet, then for your own safety you must tell your parent or carer and take them with you – at least on the first visit – and meet in a public place in daytime.

#4 Use a sensible username. It's always a good idea to use a username that is not going to attract the wrong type of attention.

#5 It pays to be clever. Keep your personal information secret when chatting online (name, address, telephone number, mobile number, private email address, picture), even if people ask for this. Giving out personal information can make you vulnerable.

#6 Learn how to save and keep a copy of the conversation in chat – this may be useful if you want to report something to admins or moderators.
