Communicating Information Online

We often think of browsers as a way of locating information or viewing web pages, but they can also be used to communicate with others online.

The range of tools avialable for doing this includes web based e-mail, instant messaging, Twitter, Facebook, Skype, You Tube and other social networking applications.

You can also share information online by completing online forms, putting links out through social media such as Twitter or in replies to comments in blogs, forums or online groups.

Whatever mode of communication you use you should remember basic netiquette such as keeping to the topic, not being abusive, using emoticons and remembering the limitations of specific media.
