It is rare for most of us to be caught without our cell phones in tow. Leaving the house without it will prompt the majority of us to head back home for it before proceeding to our destination. Some of us feel naked without our phones while others get bored after having come to rely on it for “around the clock” entertainment. After reading an article on Your Tango that explored “digital etiquette” don’ts while dating when it comes to texting, it got me thinking about some of the don’ts that apply to cell phone usage in general. Pulling from my own experiences and observations I decided to share 9 digital etiquette don’ts.
Now, I’m going to admit that I have committed some of these digital etiquette don’ts and I’ve sat there (sometimes annoyed) while my husband has too. But as I continue to work towards my goal of unplugging more often, and knowing how rare it is for my Mr. and I to get time with just the two of us, I try to spend more time focused on my guy than my iPhone. There is a lot happening online and thanks to social media and the internet we can read all about it and see photos in real time. But, there’s also a lot happening right in front of us, moments to be experienced and felt not just Instagramed, tweeted or texted. And of course, for those of us eager to do a little sharing there’s always the #lategram and #latergram perfect for some post date social sharing.
