AbstractHow is social etiquette performed when offline interpersonal interactions are mediated online? Sixty semi-structured interviews with WeChat users, China’s most popular social media platform, show that the app’s technical designs facilitated a set of online etiquette rules which reproduced those of acquaintance communities. Three dimensions of social etiquette rules were considered and observed: respect, elegance, and tidiness. Users honored the face of others and avoided causing others to lose face, often presented a positive but restrained self-image, and strived to preserve the tidiness of the online public space by avoiding the sharing of and exposing others to “negative energy”.
