Ways to Improve Digital Footprint

By: Rebekah Drum

Positive Contributions in the Community

On social media, you should post about positive activities that help the community such as acts of community service or involvements in organizations. By posting ways you serve your community, colleges and future employers will be more likely to consider you compared to someone who posts only about themselves.


Another way to improve a digital footprint is to post pictures with family. Family shows that you are a caring person and would look attractive to anyone looking at your social media.


What pictures a person has on social media also contributes to a person's digital footprint. Pictures can help show how you act. Pictures from parties or inappropriate pictures hurt digital footprints while pictures with family and friends improve digital footprints.
