What impact does/can your Digital Footprint have on your future?

My Digital Footprint can impact my future in a bad way because I can accidentally post/retweet something offensive or something rude and it can backfire on me. But on the other hand it can be good because if I post about my volunteer work it may catch the attention of my potential job employer .

What can you do to continue improving your online identity?

Well I can continue to follow different campaigns, post more about my volunteer work, and post about things I've done with my school such as games, clubs, and school activities.

What you learned this semester about maintaining a positive Digital Footprint?

This semester I have learned that the most important thing that I have to do to maintain a positive Digital Footprint would be staying positive yourself and don't post things you will end up regretting in the future.
