Digital Footprint

A digital footprint is the collection of all the traces you leave in electronic environments as you use or move through them. Some is content you actively volunteer—like your Facebook profile. Other material is passive—the cookies a site stores in your browser, the content your district collects about your use of their equipment, etc. All this data can be aggregated to build a profile of you and your behavior.

Tips for Creating a Positive Digital Footprint

  • Always THINK
  • Never post anything that you might find embarrassing later.
  • Be careful with the pictures you post on your public profiles. Remember others will see them and judge you based on their content.
  • Change the privacy settings on your social networking sites so that only your Friends can see your information
  • Do not disclose your personal address, phone number, passwords. Bank card numbers…etc even in private messages. There is always the possibility of somebody hacking into your account and finding them.
  • Do not post things to bully, hurt, blackmail, insult, or afflict any kind of harm on others
  • Always keep in mind that once information has been posted online, it can be almost impossible to remove because of archiving and file sharing. Even though you deactivate your accounts, the information may still be retrieved by others.

Causes of WW1

Ethical Judgement: Who is responsible for starting WWI? Explain using specific details from history.

Before the WW1, the Austro-Hungarian Empire sent its prince Ferdinand to Sarajevo to demostrate its imperialism. The visit gave the Black Hand an oppotunity to kill him. This is the trigger of the WW1, but it’s not the reason for causing the war. Even Ferdinand didn’t visit Sarajevo, these countries still will fight by other reasons. I believe Germany is responsible for starting WW1 because Germany gave the Blank Cheque to support Austria hungary and declared war on Russia and France from their militarism and imperialism. Every countries has the responsible for it but Germany has the more responsible for it.
