Digital Footprint

Digital footprint

Question: How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities?
[Give at least two examples]
Answer:
University:

  • Positive: My digital footprint might affect my university opportunities if, for example, the University scouts saw that I was active in my community regularly such as volunteering or supporting fundraisers, it would have a positive impact on my application.

    

  • Negative: My digital footprint might affect my university opportunities if, for example, the University scouts saw that I was drinking, smoking underage and your posting inappropriate pictures of others of myself online, it would have a very negative impact on my application.

Jobs:

  • Positive: My digital footprint might affect my job applications if, I, for example, posted pictures of myself volunteering, supporting fundraisers, being active in my school and setting good examples for my peers it would have a very positive impact on my job application for sure.

  • Negative: My digital footprint might affect my job applications if, I, for example, posted pictures of myself drinking, smoking underage and harassing people online, it would definitely have a negative impact on my job application.

Question: Describe at least three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.
Answer:

  • Only post pictures that are appropriate to be online for others to see.
  • Always keep in mind that anything I post online is there forever and nothing never really gets deleted online.
  • Think twice before posting.

Question: What information did you learn that you would pass on to other students? How would you go about telling them?
Answer:

  • I would go about telling them that anything you post online will forever be online it will never get deleted for sure. Think twice before posting and if you don’t think it’s appropriate then ask a friend or just don’t post it at all.
