I'm looking for a term, word or metaphor for being social but within rules or boundaries.
I don't like the word privacy as it has a negative connotation. I think the word social is overused or misunderstood, especially in the online realm. I assume real social interactions operate on trust and that certain behavioral rules must be followed. But doing things together bonds people, and they learn more about each other. Etiquette is too stodgy and doesn't encompass all that I am trying to say.
Any thoughts on how to combine all of these ideas into one word, a blend-word, or a metaphor, please?
