Everyone should keep in mind that all the posts, pictures, research and articles on the web belong to someone else and in case if you are using their work make sure proper credit is given as it is their right. If not it can lead to legal action and author has all the rights in the world to sue that individual.

  • Online networking and blog entries can often result in an extension among individuals who share distinct perspectives, as your opinion may not always be right. So always respect other people’s opinions instead of making some kind of unprofessional comment or bullying them for what they believe in. Any type of bullying is a crime make it physical or cyber as no one has the rights to hurt other people’s feelings for what they believe or look like. Bullying can often result in embarrassment, shame or even more serious life threatening disorders such as depression and anxiety or even in worst case scenario it can lead to suicidal attempts. Hence, treat others as you wish to be treated.
