10 Netiquettes for Amaan Africa VOVO4SDG Holiday Hackathon

Netiquette is a combination of ‘net’ (internet) and ‘etiquette’ meaning etiquette governing communication on the Internet.

Netiquette is a set of rules and guidelines for online behavior, which includes principles such as being respectful, using proper grammar and spelling, not spamming or trolling, protecting personal information and respect for others’ privacy.

One key aspect of netiquette is to research before posting. Before making any statement or opinion online, it’s important to ensure that you have accurate information, so that you don’t spread misinformation or wrong conclusions. It’s also essential to edit and proofread your posts before submitting them to avoid any spelling or grammar mistakes which could potentially be misunderstood by other participants.

Another important aspect of netiquette is to acknowledge others when due. When replying or commenting on someone else’s post, it’s polite to thank the person for their contribution and show appreciation for their ideas. 

Our vision with Amaan Africa Volunteer Voices for Sustainable Development Goals (VOVO4SDG) Holiday Hackathon is to impact Content Developer skills to 200 African Youths and Women by teaching them how to use Canva software to enable them brainstorm in groups and prototype innovative solutions to address common challenges on the African continent inspired by UN SDG and AfCFTA 100% online.

These Digital Skills for life will kick start Entrepreneurship, Freelance, Advocacy and Activism.
