Etiquette - Messages
is SMSjunction Message Etiquette?
SMSjunction Message Etiquette refers to generally
accepted ways of messaging on SMSjunction. Since
text messaging via mobile phones is a newly
emerging application, there are some things
we should all keep in mind.
is different than chat:
Remember that most people receive their SMSjunction
messages on their mobile devices. Sending out
a "who's on?" or "anyone want to chat?" message
to a group is really not appropriate unless
it's a private or secret group of your friends
or a designated chat room.
All SMSjunction messages are limited to 120 characters
due to carrier limits. SMSjunction doesn't have
control over these limits so messages by default
must be short and to the point.
far as group messaging goes, when you join a
group you should make sure to read the group
description. Here you'll often find useful information
on what types of messages are acceptable and
what types are not. Additionally, you should
read through some of the group message history
before you send a message to get a better idea
of what types of messages people generally send
that if the group founder doesn't like the content
of the messages you send out he/she has the
right to boot you out of the group. If you think
you've been unjustly booted, please send a message
to the group founder. SMSjunction has no control
over individual group membership.
Since messages are delivered to members' mobile
phones and pagers it's important not to deluge
groups with messages. Please keep in mind that
most SMSjunction members subscribe to a number
of groups and your messages are not the only
ones they receive.
