Polite behavior doesn't end when the spiked egg nog comes out, in fact it doubles. Digital etiquette, the rules that keep up from posting unflattering pictures on social media of our friends, and not recording guests sleeping in our home, gets an added boost during the holidays.

From social media No-No's during holiday parties (hint: turn the phone off) to how to manage your smart speakers (hint: you might want to stow them away), we're going to help you navigate some of the 10 top etiquette rules when it comes to digital devices during the holiday season. After all, everyone wants to be the best guest, and the best host.

Perhaps you own a smart device whether that's a video doorbell or a connected security camera. Maybe you've installed some smart speakers in your home, or have a heavy hand on social media sites form Instagram to Snapchat. If any of these scenarios sound familiar, this may be a Facebook Live worth watching.
