Leaving a positive digital footprint

Digital Footprint

A digital footprint is the trail, traces or "footprints" that a person leaves behind through the use of technology and digital media.

  • Everything on the internet happens in front of an anonymous audience.

  • Once something is out on the internet, it is there for a long time, or even forever.

  • Information can't be controlled. Anything can be copied, changed, and shared instantly.
