Question 1. How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities? Give at least 2 examples.
My digital footprint could prevent me from getting jobs because if the people who want to hire me find it and find something they don’t like then they wont hire me. It can also affect me getting into colleges or universities. It could also make it difficult for me to do volunteer work.

Question 2: Describe at least three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.
You can keep your digital footprint safe by making everything you post online private so that only people you want to see it can see it. You can keep it appropriate by knowing what your posting and what it can cause. You can also keep it safe by not putting out any major personal information eg. Address, Social security number, and credit card information.

Question 3. What information did you learn that you would pass on to other students? How would you go about telling them?
I would pass on the information about how your digital portfolio is with you before your born and even after you die, I would tell them verbally and through technology. I would also tell them about the what can happen if everyone can see your digital footprint
