Digital Footprint


On the internet a digital footprint is the word used to describe the trail, traces or "footprints" that people leave online. This is information transmitted online, such as forum registration, e-mails and attachments, uploading videos or digital images and any other form of transmission of information — all of which leaves traces of personal information about yourself available to others online.



College admissions and employers do read your online profiles and they do make decisions based upon information they find out about you online.


Create a profile that says simple, non-specific details about yourself, but that is still identifiably you.
