Lately, I was thinking about adequate term for better and healthier online/virtual experience and presence/existence.

After, some thought I come to a term "Virtual Hygiene" which is a coin from two other terms.
Virtual - in world of computers is often explained as 'not physically existing as such but made by software to appear to do so'. It is computer-based simulated environment which may be populated by many users who represent them self in a way of a personal avatar.
Hygiene - was the Greek goddess of health, cleanliness and sanitation. In general definition it is a 'practice or activity that you do to keep things healthy and clean.'.
So, in general my suggestion for term 'Virtual Hygiene' definition would be:
Virtual Hygiene - is practice or activity which has a goal to protect our general health and presence in the virtual (computer) generated world.
Analyzing the current worldwide trends in an IT revolution, where the internet access and peoples presence 'online' / 'virtual' is spreading in tremendous speed. We are becoming increasingly aware of the virtual existence and about its consequences.
For us now. Or for the future generations its is very important to take care about our 'Virtual presence'. For a long time nobody was so worried about their 'Virtual presence' in a way that it will be something that will last forever. As, in a real life we all have something that we don't like to be reminded on. In 'Virtual' world the things we wouldn't like to be reminded on will still be there. By the current regulations and trends we can't do too much to prevent that. 'Virtual Hygiene' becoming crucial for our presence in a Virtual/Online world. We all should make efforts to think about actions and activities in a way before we do something that will be there forever either we like that or no.
The activities we are doing every day in our real 'Physical' life like washing our hands, watch our bad talk/language, store our garbage, clean our house. Should also take a place in a 'Virtual' world. All these activities are contributing to our personal and global health and create better assumptions for those who came next. It's our duty to leave the 'real' and 'virtual' worlds in better shape.
So, for the good 'Virtual Hygiene' it would be important to us to think about our activities online, our presence. Let's try not make thing worst for the others. Be more polite in every day communication. Let's not pollute the world with bad thoughts by deeds and a bad atmosphere in general.
NOTE: This is a just preview and my thoughts about the term and definition.
