What is a digital footprint and why is it important ?
Whats does your digital footprint consist of ? What tools do you use and for what purpose ?
I use twitter to interact with events at my school and follow and share things with my friends and staff members at my school .
I use Instagram to post pictures of me and cool stuff i do for summer break or winter break or sometimes fun events i do at school .
I use LinkedIn for looking for jobs and interacting with people that may help me with my future career . I used it for a project i did in class , it was called 20% project and it helped me out finding ideas for my project such like recipes and people who are cooks cause my project was based on cooking .
These examples impact my digital footprint because if in the future if i get a job or apply for a college that's one thing they might look at my social media accounts or they might just search up my name on google and if the footprint is bad i might not get that job or inter into a good college . That's why its important for me to set a good exapmle on my social media accounts .
What my digital footprint says about me ?
A . What's helpful and why ?
Whats helpful about my digital footprint is since i love keeping my socials medias organized and clean i could get a better chance at getting a job for coding or simple any job . I really just use my twitter to interact with my school and my Instagram to like and post and to comment on pictures and i don't really use LinkedIn but i could use it to find jobs and add friends .
B . What's harmful and why ?
What's harmful is if i start talking about a job or putting bad pictures of myself and being known in a bad way . My twitter is not harmful cause i barely post and my Instagram can cause sometimes i like things i shouldn't and LinkedIn is not harmful at all unless i start putting all my information.
What can you do to continue to improve your online identity ?
- Start posting more
- interact with my school more
- interact with people from careers i wanna pursue
- Don't put all my information out there
