Ethics and Blogging



Ethics in blogging are important because content published on the internet is likely to outlast both the topic’s relevance and the life of the author itself. Sensible impartiality is required and includes things such as stating fact as fact and opinion as opinion.


Sharing content without permission, plagiarizing content and failing to portray the intended meaning of a given statement are all acts which are unethical on a content creator’s behalf. Other offences including not naming a source (unless that source would be harmed by doing so) and other similar acts or omissions that cloud the legitimacy or verifiability of content. As is not revealing when a post is paid or sponsored.
