Your Online Journey

What is a digital footprint?

A digital footprint is the word used to describe the trail, traces or footprints that people leave online.

What you need to know about your digital footprint

Your digital footprint can never be erased or deleted and it will always be there. College admissions and employers do look at your online profiles. So if you have a bad digital footprint that can affect getting into college and getting a job. There are often times when information gets passed around outside of your small group of friends and some details can be changed or altered.

When you're online be conscious of what you do and always be aware of who you're REALLY talking to. Don't do inappropriate things that you wouldn't want your parents to know. Remember that one day you employer or a college might look up your digital footprint an if it's not good you loose that opportunity because if one stupid mistake.
