Google releases tips on Google Glass etiquette
Recent research has revealed that many have concerns surrounding the use of Google Glass, not just about their own use but of how others use the wearable technology. To educate Google Glass Explorers on etiquette, Google has just released a list of do's and don'ts.
Earlier this month, LoveMyVouchers surveyed UK consumers about their views on privacy with regards to Google Glass. Privacy was a consideration among 71% who cited, among other reasons, concern for activities such as being filmed without their permission. Furthermore, 64% said they would feel uncomfortable talking to a person sporting the wearable tech.
For those whose common sense is lacking, Google has released a swathe of do's and don'ts.
The do's are pretty straight forward and, in the main, encourage 'proper' use of the device such as using the screen lock, engaging in communities set up to provide advice and feedback and generally using the technology to explore the world. One particular do should really belong in the don'ts. Google suggests you ask permission before taking photographs or video of others - in other words, don't be creepy, or a stalker, or just plain annoying.
As for the don'ts, they are mostly common sense. Google suggests you don't 'Glass Out' (there's a new term begging entry into the urban dictionary) - in other words, limit use of Google Glass to short bursts of activity and don't attempt to use the device to read War and Peace.
In addition, advice includes not getting annoyed with all the attention you're likely to get while sporting the device, removing them while undertaking high-impact activities (or before being thumped for being found out videoing without permission) and, if in an area where smartphones are to be turned off, turn off and remove your Google Glass device, too.
