Digital Etiquette


Guest: Daniel Post Senning

It’s probably happened to you – a friend answers a text at dinner or checks their email in the middle of a conversation.  Maybe you’re the guilty one.  Sometimes it seems like good manners have fallen by the wayside in the age of twitter, cellphones and YouTube.  But certainly the rules of polite behavior still apply even with the advent of smartphones and the social media.  Today DANIEL POST SENNING, the great-great-grandson of Emily Post, offers some advice on good etiquette for our tech-filled lives.  He’s the author of “Emily Post’s Manners in a Digital World: Living Well Online.”
