Manners in a Digital World

Living Well Online


Daniel Post Senning, great-great-grandson of Emily Post, provides a current, no-nonsense guide for appropriate online and digital device behavior with his newest book, Manners In A Digital World: Living Well Online. While technologies are constantly developing and new ways to communicate continue to emerge, inevitably we will each be a victim of some form of Internet embarrassment or (perhaps unintentionally) a perpetrator of digital offense. Senning advises readers on how to maneuver such a dynamic technological environment with ease, confidence, and tact through lessons including:

  • The best and the worst of commenting online
  • How to announce a break-up on social media
  • Easy ways to separate your personal and professional life online
  • The importance of a healthy digital "diet" that employs all modes of communication
  • Appropriate etiquette and manners for online dating
  • Ways to maintain privacy and security for Internet profiles and accounts
