Some Useful Social Media Apps

What Does My Digital Foot Consist Of?

For my digital footprint I use LinkedIn, Twitter and Snapchat on a daily basis.

LinkedIn: I focus mainly on detail about my life such as my experiences, interest, and hobbies. My account primarily focuses on a professional image of myself for a career.

Twitter: I use twitter to post about Leyden High School and what it's like to be a student here. I use it to promote the positive and all the opportunities that are provided here for you as a student. I like to tweet about events and how i am involved in events/clubs.

Snapchat: I use Snapchat for a personal agenda. I use this app to share videos and pictures with my family and friends. Especially if I am going on a vacation or a special event, I like people to know my life consist of adventures and journeys. I also receive photos and videos from friends and family. This allows me to keep in contact with them through live videos and picture rather than just a boring text message.
