Your Digital Footprint

What is it and How is it Used?

What is a "Digital Footprint"?

A digital footprint is used to describe the trail, traces or "footprints" that people leave online. Meaning that everything you search, do, or post online can be seen by anyone.

Think Before You Post.

Is it appropriate? Is it nice? Remember, anyone can see what you post: the administration at your school, your family, your friends and their parents, and employers even look before they hire. If you wouldn't want someone else to post the picture or say what you are about to say to you, then don't post it.
