Drinks Kept Away From Devices
It is good internet etiquette to keep your drinks away from your computer and everyone else’s to avoid breaking them.
Liquid ruins electronic devices. Any moisture poses a threat of a short circuit. Be careful not to lay your electronic device in a wetspot on a table.
Check to make sure any surface you use is dry. Placing a napkin under a cup can prevent moisture from accumulating on a table. A drink that is at least six inches from an electronic device with a napkin under it proper netiquette.
This is proper netiquette because the distance of six inches is ample to quickly move your device in case of a spill. The napkin under the drink prevent moisture from gathering under it.
Therefore, it is good netiquette to wipe any liquid off a table before sitting in it at a hotspot and keep drinks six inches away on top of napkin.
