What is a 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.

A digital footprint can be used to track what you have done on the internet and is now used to help employers see if you are a reputable person to hire.

Stop cyber bullying!

Cyber bullying is the use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature. cyber bullying is a bad thing to do because it's like bullying, but it can follow a person home and it still has the same effect, but it could be worse because people say stuff or do stuff they normally wouldn't do in person. It's the golden rule in a way because you wouldn't want to be treated that way so treat other the way you want to be treated.
