digital footprint project final

by Luis Martinez

What is a Digital Footprint and why is it important?

A digital footprint is the marks that you have left on the internet for example the posts you make on Facebook or snap chat. Your digital footprint can affect where you work and what kind of college or university that you make it into. The way it can affect your for A job is an employer can look through your social media accounts, and see what your posts are. This is so they can get sort a view of what kind of person you are. The college/university can do the exact same thing and see what kind of person they are expecting or denying.

What does your Digital Footprint consist of? What tools do you use and for what purpose?

  • Facebook: I use Facebook to connect with my friends and to see what is going on in the world. Facebook really doesn't affect my digital footprint that much because I do not post much. It doesn't say much about myself if it says anything probably that I don't want everybody to know what I am up to.

  • Snapchat: I use it to message my friends and look at their stories and see what they are up to. People that I have on snap chat can see what I am up to if i post it, and if I post something that I'm not supposed to be doing and they screenshot it that can affect me in a bad way.What I can affect me positively or negatively.

  • Twitter: I use it to keep up with my favorite Youtubers because they mostly post on twitter. This example wouldn't affect me in a negative or positive way because I don't post much besides that one time for a project.Its says that I am interested in some Youtubers and keeping up with their videos.

What impact does/can your footprint have on your future?

It can affect what kind of job you can get and if you get the job or not if there is a lot of applicants . That is probably one of the biggest ways that it can affect how your daily life . Another way it can affect you is in school either currently or if you are applying for college/university. For an example of current day school is if you argue with someone on Facebook it cause problems at school. It can also affect what other people think about you because if you post something mean people can assume you are rude.

Whats helpful why and Whats harmful why

What is harmful: A harmful thing is if you make fun of someone on the internet especially on Facebook. This is harmful because no employer or school want a person mean to other people that causes problems.


What is helpful:posting on A social media platform that you went and helped the homeless or post any charity work. It will show that you like to help people and that you are not lazy.

What can you do to continue to improve your online identity

First I can do more charity and let people know that I am good person and that I am not lazy and I like to help around. Another thing I could do is make my name known more especially on LinkedIn so when I get older I have more opportunities for work and school.

Also that what you do online can affect your real life in a positive way and also in a negative way.
