What impact does/can your footprint have on your future?

My digital footprint can have a very positive impact on my future, it can help me find a job, show my positive impact in the community and so much more. Overall when some looks at my footprint it wont show negative things but instead positive things that can help me in life.

What’s helpful and why?

Overall LinkedIn and Twitter are most helpful because they can help me find jobs and they show my positive impact on my community. This is very important because the world is a hard place and i will need all the help i can get.

What’s harmful and why?

What can you do to continue to improve your online identity?

I can post more on Twitter and be more active since i have only made a few posts about the same thing which is the food drive. I could also work on my LinkedIn account more to further explore potential paths that could help me in life.
