  13. Being a netizen means that we are apart of a large community of users, and we should be responsible for our actions we do online, we should also be careful of what we do as they might cause problems. Values like respect and responsibility do, except in some irresponsible/immature users. If these values didn't exist in all of us, the cyberspace would be filled with injustice and more wrong values than there already is, so I think currently these values are present in most users.

  24. 1. It means that we are all "linked" together, what ever things posted will be known by the community and also it means that we have another life digitally; online. We, being netizens, should be respectful to others online like in real life.
    2. Yes they do. These values exists when one posts a post; he/she must be responsible for what is written in the post. For respect, people respect each other when online, either in comments or in chat. But there are also people who are not respectful and responsible. Eventhough we are behind a computer screen, it doesn't mean we can insult people. Thus, we should have those values wherever online.
