The world has changed a lot in the past 2 years. As a result of the pandemic, virtual meetings became the way for co-workers, family, and friends to keep in touch. And while in-person events are returning and more employees are returning to work, virtual meetings aren’t going anywhere. In a world where we are all working from home, possibly in pajamas, surrounded by our dogs and cats and kids – new etiquette rules have to come into play. Why is it important to think about virtual etiquette? Because, unlike in-person interactions, in virtual meetings social cues and communication is different. There are no immediate verbal or nonverbal cues and no instant feedback.
As with many things, it’s important to be more aware and cautious and err on the side of good manners. These virtual etiquette rules are more like unwritten formal manners. And they should be followed in your online social and professional settings. While many of these (and more!) are still being established as we move forward in a more virtual world, these are some generally accepted Do’s and Don’ts.
