What does MY Digital Footprint consist of?
My Digital Footprint sees me comment my personal opinions on Youtube videos on how much I enjoyed the video or how can they improve. I also like sharing links on Facebook on current events or things I think my friends would enjoy viewing. On Snapchat, I post funny or awkward moment between me and my friends. I never post anything that I know would get in me in trouble. My Digital Footprint shows me as a guy that enjoys sports, movies, and having fun with friends.
How Does This affect my future?
I personally think my DIgital Footprint so far has given me a good image. I think it has because when I want to apply for a job next year, I am 99% sure they will look at some of my social media pages only to find that I am a responsible individual and have a majority of a positive Digital Footprint. That's the positive part. Now the only thing that comes to my mind when I think how can my Digital Footprint harm me is I tend to swear on Facebook but if anyone can look past that, then they would see I am good person online and in real life.
How can I improve my Digital Footprint?
I can start posting motivational things on Facebook to make people have a better day. Examples can be quotes from inspirational people now and from history. That can improve my footprint because it shows I like motivating people. Another thing I can do to improve is post things about what is going on at East Leyden. I can promote upcoming games, events, or even tests. These posts may remind people who have forgotten until they saw my post. This shows I look out for people by reminding them.
What Is the Most Important Thing I've Learned About Maintaining A Positive Digital Footprint?
I have learned many things this semester about maintaining a positive Digital Footprint:
- Once posted, it stays there even if deleted
- Be smart on what you post
- Think before posting
- Think how it affects OTHER people
- You don't get another Footprint, only 1
