Is it rude to deny your boyfriend’s Mom’s friend request on Facebook? What do do you when you accidentally tweet your phone number? These are the kinds of questions The New York Times‘ new etiquette column, “Internet Protocol” hopes to answer.

Times reporter Jenna Wortham, who will edit the column, tells PRNewser, “The rise of social media and the Internet has completely changed the way we communicate with each other, which is amazing, but its also resulted in an entirely new generation of social situations which can be very tricky to navigate.”

Wortham says the questions will be answered, “by consulting with experts on the topics and using our own personal experiences.” She adds, “It should be a lot of fun.” Have a question? Email or Tweet it to Jenna.
