My Digital Footprint

Ouconnectedr world is slowly depending more and more on technology. We’re seeing many benefits, and we’re spending more and more time connected to the global web, exposing ourselves to the world. Everything we do can be tracked down to a file, andsection3-infographic1 everything we’ve done our said is stored somewhere in the world.

As we spend much more time connected, we need to learn how to properly implement it into our lives positively and efficiently. A digital footprint will be used to identify you from many people you may have not even met yet, such as your future employer, future friends, future teachers, future classmates and even the future of yourself.

The identity of your online profile can influence the potential of  your employment or even your relationships with friends or family. Adults have been losing their jobs as rivals dig through their digital footprint beginning from their teen years up to their adult years. For my generation, it’s completely different because we’ve grown on technology and everything we post from our childhoods will follow all the way up to the end of our lives.Computer screen and hand with card, isolated on white backgroundLooking through my online profile, going through to the footprints I leave on the internet surprised me when different comments appeared from YouTube, Instagram and different media sites where I spend my time tagging my friends or leaving feedback.  It really proves that it’s not only our posts being found, but really everything we’re doing online is being tracked and kept somewhere.

Most of yourthree-smiles online footprint is controlled by yourself. You choose what goes out there, and it’s up to you to keep a clean and respectful digital footprint. To build your digital footprint, you need to be respectful online, respect others online, and make sure whatever you’re doing you can be proud of.

Be sure to setup a Google Alert to notify yourself every time your name is mentioned online, go through your social media accounts’ privacy settings often and keep the content you put onto the internet clean.

Although we’re being taught the exact same things every year about our digital footprints, we really need to wake up and face the harsh consequences there will be in the future. Parents need to know there needs to be less enforcement on the internet and instead have more education for kids to learn to be safe. I would definitely share the importance of keeping your profile on the internet and the security and professional risks there are.
