Every individual has a huge impact on the Internet.
Today, the Internet is our number one source of information when it comes to travelling. We go to online guides, travel review website (like Trip Advisor) and of course blogs. The information we upload is often taken as gospel.
So how can we assure our Internet impact is as ethical as possible? It’s important to speak your mind, but there are ways to make sure your honest opinion is kind.
For example, you might be travelling in a developing country. Today, you ate at a tiny family-owned restaurant that served you a meal you don’t enjoy.
Write your online review with respect.
A bad review can turn many people away and it could cause ruckus for their business. Of course, this is situational and you have to decide the best way to do it according to your standards. The main thing here to remember is respect.
Another example is if you take part in a tour or stay at a hotel etc that claimed to be eco-friendly and it was not.
Don’tcensor your thoughts here. Again, be respectful, but leave your honest review. It could save somebody with good intentions from falling into that trap!
