About the rules of online communication (netiquette), “Share expert knowledge” is the one with the most related rules to the pure communication.
Imagine the old days and the methods of learning and improving knowledge that were mainly limited to schools. People also could talk to each other and transfer their experiences through their communications. There were a lot of limitation such as geography, accessibility and flexibility that used to kept people away from experiencing different kinds of communications.
Nowadays with the help of the internet, people around the world can communicate with each other not only without the previous limitations but also there are many features that are added. Communications over the internet have got so popular so far and one of its main keys that has made it so useful is “Share expert knowledge”. This is one of the goals of having communications as well.
If everyone follows the rule of share expert knowledge, they can create a wide knowledge-based database accessible for every one as well as communicating with individuals.
This knowledge sharing makes the online communications stronger and over some time, people rely on it more often. To illustrate this point, we can compare the amount of training materials, blogs and forums in 2021 with the mentioned examples in 2010. Everyone wants to learn from this knowledge sharing community and gets motivated to share their own knowledge and experience as well to have some contribution to the community.
One of the most important impacts of the “Share expert knowledge” rule that has been applied to our digital society is that the digital world was ready enough to handle some unexpected happenings such as Covid-19. At the time of writing this post, it has been more than a year that the world relies on online education, business, meeting, etc.
Another impact of the “Share expert knowledge” rule is that it is almost impossible that people dos not have any materials for their learning purposes and most of them can be found without having to pay anything. This is a great opportunity for everyone that cares about growing their knowledge and help others to grow as well.
