|The Etiquettes of Social Messaging|
|大家嘅新年假期過得開心嗎?? 梗係大事歡慶, 大事吃喝(加埋大事賭博), 同埋收到好多嘅祝賀短訊定喇.. 當然, 貫徹我一向(不太主流)嘅博客作風, 我唔會寫我新年點過囉.. 大家都係做同食埋咁上下嘅嘢, 你想知就去睇其他人嘅blog啦, 哈哈!! 今日我就想寫下關於我哋手機內, social chat apps所收到嘅短訊 - 發送短訊的禮節..|
鍾意將一條訊息分幾個嚟發嘅人, 更不能不提一連串惱人嘅鈴聲.. 舉個例: ｢嗨!!｣ > ｢你好呀｣ > ｢好耐唔見｣ > ｢LOL｣ > ｢有冇約人?｣ > ｢出嚟見個面吖｣ > ｢飲杯嘢啦不如?｣ > ｢請回覆｣.. 大可以short and sweet用一個短訊搞掂啦, 譬如話喂, ｢出嚟飲杯嘢啦｣.. 我想話呢, 除咗個send button之外, 其實係有個 return/enter key㗎囉~~
鍾意成日check住晒對方有冇睇短訊, 又expect對方要即刻回覆嘅人.. 其他人就或者可以, 不過我就唔係一日睇手機86400次嘅人(註:1日=86400秒), 更何況我係因為個案(A)而mute晒啲apps嘅.. 所以話, 如果你唔可以做到自己嘅要求, 就唔好要求別人可以做得到囉..
鍾意失驚無神發個｢嗨!!｣俾人之後又靜晒落嚟.. 係諗住我｢嗨!!｣返你咁簡單定諗住我會問你有咩事呀?? 如果有嘢就麻煩請講唔駛等人回應, 唔駛搞到個對話神神秘秘咁嘅.. 如果我心情靚, 問下有咩事, 唔該唔好就咁消失, 搞到個對話半天吊..
鍾意用全大楷字母打短訊嘅人, 仲要用一連串嘅感嘆號.. 或者你自己察覺唔到, 但係對方睇到你如比此一則短訊之後, 係會覺得你喺度鬧緊佢, 仲有你用咗幾個感嘆號就代表你有幾憤怒.. 唔該注意大楷字母有必要先用, 而另一方面, 其實用句號同逗號會比只係用感嘆號更能添加好感哦.. 下下要感嘆, 查實都好攰下化?? HAHAHAHA!!!
|how was everyone's CNY holidays?? i bet you had lots of celebrations and feasting (and gambling), as well as receiving tons of messages on your phone huh?? of course with my (rather unorthodox) blogging style, i'm not going to write about how i spent my CNY.. everyone did and ate almost the same thing, if you want to know then please go read other blogs, haha!! today's post is rather inspired by the messages we received through chat apps - the etiquettes of social messaging..|
simple question: what do you dislike most about people sending messages??
one who breaks a message into multiple short ones (not to mention the irritating series of notifications).. eg: Hi > How are you? > Long time no see > LOL > Going anywhere? > Wanna meet up later?? > Just for a drink > Please reply which can just be sent in a short and sweet message like "Hi there, wanna meet up for a drink?".. i just want to say, there is always an enter/return key instead of just the send button you can use..
one who keeps on checking if messages were read and expecting the other party to reply instantly.. okay, you may count on others, bt i don't look at my phone 86400 times a day (note: 1 day = 86400 seconds) and i mute my chat apps because of Case (A) above.. so, please, don't lay you expectations on others if you are not expecting yourself to do so either..
one who starts a conversation with a "Hi" and then gone silent.. are you expecting just a "Hi" back from me, or are you expecting me to ask if you have something to say?? if you have something to say, then please initiate that right away, there is no need to wait for a handshake, don't keep the conversation a mystery.. and if i give you a d*mn by asking what's up, then don't go missing and keep the conversation hanging..
one who uses all capital letters to type a message and what's more, with lots of exclamation marks.. you may not sense this, but this actually makes the recipients think you are scolding and the series of repeating exclamation marks links to the degree of anger in you.. learn to use uppercase sparingly unless you want to highlight something, and learn to appreciate the beauty of period or comma instead of only exclamation mark.. having to exclaim all the time, is, rather, quite exhausting huh?? HAHAHAHA!!!
