As much as technology and the internet have benefited us, they've also created some really bad habits. Here are a few common ones (featured in the infographic below), and how you can kick them.
Bad Email Etiquette:If you work in an office, bad email etiquette - such as requesting read receipts, or ignoring emails completely - can frustrate your colleagues.
Email out of hours isn't helpful - try saving the message till the next day.
Ping-ponging or rapid replies to office emails, is the most annoying habit according to a Kingston University study (2011).
How to stop it:
Keep email content in sync with the subject line - making it easier to find later.
Get to the point quickly - use separate emails for multiple requests.

The study also found that Facebook users of all ages are equally likely to be using the platform several times daily; while on other platforms, 16-34 years old are more frequent users than older groups.

Facebook’s success at making its platform integral to its users’ online lives is obvious when we look at usage frequency among active users on other platforms. On YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Google+, just 25-28% are accessing multiple times a day – half the figure that Facebook posts.
