Office Chatting Etiquette (Skype, Communicator, Sametime):

1. It is official communication – so keep the tone and words professional

2. Avoid Emoticons – maximum a smiley 😊 is ok

3. Check the status of the other person – Busy, Do not disturb, Away or Available. Ping accordingly

4. If it is an urgent message – try to call if possible, otherwise, don’t wait for them to reply to your Hi. Send across the main message in the first 2 pings itself

5. Never post confidential information through a chat tool
