Your Digital Footprint
- Brandon Wilson -
What is a digital footprint?
A digital footprint is the information about a particular person that exists on the Internet as a result of their online activity. This means that you need to be careful of what you post and where you go on the Internet!
Keeping Your Digital Footprint Clean
Social media is one of the main things that you need to keep clean. Anyone can view it and make judgments of you from what you post. It is so important that even job recruiters will look at any of your social media accounts to see what type of person you are. If you have foul or inappropriate things on your social media account, you most likely won't get the job.
what goes on the internet, stays on the internet
Anything you type, post, or upload to the Internet will either stay there for a very long time, or stay forever. Since anyone can see anything, all they have to do is take a picture of their screen. Then that person could share it and then another person shares it until a million people have seen it. It would be nearly impossible to get rid of that. It could even eventually come back around to your family or even you boss. Be careful of what you put on the Internet.
