One thing that bothers me is the great difficulty with internet-based communications. Too many people, languages, cultures, and personalities collide online when communicating through text alone. Humor is a funny thing. (See what I did there?) And when communicating through written words alone you’ll find it is quite difficult to express yourself the same as you do in person. One thing leads to another and very quickly things get out of hand or taken the wrong way.

A smile emoticon or an emoji can only go so far in communicating your feelings. You won’t be able to share your facial expressions, your emotions, or your voice inflection correctly when typing our your comment. Be thoughtful with what you post online and how you joke with others. And remember that humor can’t always be conveyed through text.
