My Digital Footprint Evaluation
By Daryna Kulinich
The Importance of Digital Footprint
Digital Footprint is everything that you do online. Everything good and bad you do people could see. Digital footprint is important because it can impact your future in a good way or bad way. Therefore you have to make you digital footprint as positive as possible. The tools that best describe my digital footprint are: Blogger, Twitter, VK.
Tool #1 Blogger
My first tool is Blogger.Blogger is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically displayed in reverse chronological order. I used blogger for my 20% project, but not only for 20%. I used it to share recipes and a little about other cultures. I believe that Blogger will impact my future in a good way. It is very organized and has a lot of good information. The blog is saying that I'm responsible, I have some skills and my interests is in cooking.
Tool #2 Twitter
My second tool that i used is Twitter. Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called "tweets". Registered users can read and post tweets, but unregistered users can only read them.I used it for my digital literacy class. First i started of with nothing, but then I got follower and some posts, people started to like my posts. The purpose of this tool is to share with people what I don in my free time and show them what I involved in. Twitter impact my future in the best way. It shows that I spend a lot of time in school volunteering and with my friends.
Tool #3 VK
My third tool is VK. VK is the largest European social network based in St Petersburg. It is available in several languages, but is especially popular among Russian-speaking users. The purpose of this tool is to show what I do in my free time and show something I like to do. Also It shows my first job and my first money check. This tool affects my footprint in good way. It says about me that i know how to communicate well and it shows that I am a good worker.
Impact On My Future
The impact that digital footprint puts on my future is positive. It shows a lot of skills that I gained though my freshman year. If I keep my digital footprint positive It will impact my future in the best way.
I could continue to improve my digital footprint by posting more stuff on Twitter and LinkedIn. My Twitter has positive impact on my future, but there is not a lot of posts or information about me. For LinkedIn I didn't post anything, and I think I should post something to maintain my digital footprint.
Maintaining My Digital Footprint
The most important thing that I learned about my digital footprint is about maintaining a positive footprint and keep posting stuff online. Once this class is over I'm going to post more stuff about LHS and things that I am involved in.
