When authoring a blog its important to be aware of the ethics and online code you should abide by in order to maintain a professional space and not offend readers. Blogging is great as it allows anyone to set up a space and express their opinion, however people need to remember that once you post something online your digital footprint is out there forever and there is no taking it back. In saying that throughout this blog I will not be posting any content that is likely to offend readers or violate the law. I will make sure everything I post is my own content so I wont be infringing on the intellectual property rights of others.
I came across this website that puts into words a kind of an ‘unofficial code’ of online ethics.
