As parents we spend a great deal of time teaching our children manners: sharing, being respectful, saying “please” and “thank you.” We want them to learn how to act appropriately in every situation, so why not online, too? How our children act on social media now affects how they will behave in the digital world through their preteen and teen years, and beyond—making “social media manners” more important than ever.

Mobile technologies and social media have led to social skills and manners being worse than ever, with those who engage in frequent mobile phone use becoming ever more impolite.There’s clearly a danger that as we become more reliant on connecting through technology, we start to become more and more disconnected from each other.
