Eventually, however, many of the early resistors will come around when they realize that if they want to spend time with their children, they had better get comfortable with ice cream and spoons.
The same is true with the Internet. In many ways, it's the province of the young, with millennials and their younger siblings writing the rules of behavior and parents and grandparents scrambling to catch up so they can communicate with their offspring. In business, it's often the other way around. In most instances, older generations are still in charge in either client or coworker relationships. This means that Internet etiquette -- as with in-person etiquette -- can be very different for personal and business interactions.

Can e-mail -- or even a text -- take the place of the thank-you note? In many instances, the answer is yes. That said, there are still some considerations. If you're thanking grandparents, a real snail-mailed note may still be the best option.
For other people, an e-mail or text may be appropriate. Think about the recipient -- a good lens to use when considering all behavior. How would that person like to receive a thank-you? Is one even necessary? If the person is a good friend, a text or e-mail is probably fine -- and completely acceptable within the new rules of etiquette. If it's someone who doesn't live in the virtual world, then a "genuine" thank-you note -- handwritten, addressed and stamped -- is the polite way to go. RSVPs: E-vites and other online invitations have made it easier than ever to RSVP, but people often don't do so in a timely manner, which leaves the host at a loss as to how much food to plan for or how large a space is needed.
Take the easy -- and polite -- way out. As soon as an invitation comes in -- no matter what form it takes even a snail-mailed wedding invitation , for example -- check your online calendar, add the event to it and respond right away and in the manner requested in the invitation text, e-mail, smoke signals or whatever.

If your plans change, let the host know immediately. Listen to the voice of the parent or grandparent you may sometimes hear in your ear: A prompt RSVP is still polite, even if the form of invitation has changed.

Here are some things to keep in mind as you maintain your virtual connections. One of the ways the Internet hasn't changed etiquette is though there's dispute about what "polite" looks like, being polite still matters.
In some ways, it matters even more. It's easy when you don't see someone's reaction -- such as facial, tonal or other cues -- to forget that what you text, e-mail or post on Facebook has the power to hurt. It's why the word " cyberbullying " came into being. Be polite in all communications -- face-to-face as well as virtual.
