Tips for Online Meetings

I’ve been meeting online a lot lately, just like many people. I’ve got a few tips for people. Some of these you’d think you wouldn’t have to say.

  • Don’t scratch yourself or put your finger in your ear when your camera’s on.
  • Mute when you’re not talking because when your mic’s on it picks up background noise that makes it hard to hear what the speaker is saying.
  • Don’t have your camera on while you’re eating. Sipping a drink seems fine, but if you’re eating and crumbs are falling from your mouth, that’s not pleasant to witness.
