It is Wired's definitive guide to behavior, manners, and style on Twitter, Instagram, Lyft, Facebook, Tinder, Secret, and everywhere else answers burning questions like: Is it OK to Tinder while drunk?

Can I use my neighbor’s HBO GO? Is it wrong to pimp my kid for likes? Should I use emoji? See below for excerpts

Wired has following tips for you on digital behavior:

Forget the Google Glass — For Now

Between the in-group tiered rollout and the $1,500 price point, Glass is an in-your-face marker of social class – a symbol of self importance that suggest the wearer has too much money and too little fashion sense — and that’s caused a backlash.

It’s banned from restaurants, a woman was assaulted for wearing Glass inside a San Francisco dive bar, and a group called Stop the Cyborgs is campaigning for Glass-free zones. So for now, wear Glass only when the technology it will eventually supplant is heavily prevalent. Dive bar? No. Tech conference with 75 percent of the people on a laptop or cellphone? Yes.

It’s OK to Tinder While Drunk

Tinder and intoxication are meant for each other. That’s because the tap into the same kind of behavior. "When intoxicated, you’re making decisions based on a fragment of understanding,” says social psychologist Claude Steele. A mere four photos and a tagline forces people to make decisions based on a cursory grasp of the situation. A sober person might balk at those limitations. Let those worrywarts obsess over their OkCupid profiles!

Don’t Pimp Your Kid for Likes

It’s tempting to saturate your social media feeds with your child’s awesomeness. But what begins as a desire to share your tyke’s first steps can quickly devolve into a hunt for Likes, faves, and comments.

At this point you have become a stage mom, with all the attendant’s issues. “The child may begin to feel responsible for their parent’s happiness, and that’s quite a burden to carry,” says Leslie Anderson, a University of Manitoba researcher who has studied child actors. So yes, share some cute pictures. But don’t set your kid on the same path as the cast of Diff’rent Strokes.

Watch R-Rated Movies on Planes

The answer: It’s fine. Coach class isn’t a Puritan church service, and you shouldn’t feel ashamed about watching a video with a little bump-and-grind.

Your real concern is noise. “The biggest complaint we get about electronic devices, by far, is that they’re too loud,” says Shawn Kathleen, a veteran flight attendant. We’re pretty good a keeping our eyes to ourselves, but not so much our ears. So while the occasional flash of buttocks is fine, make sure that nothing audible disturbs your neighbors.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
