How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities? Whenever you are using the internet you have to be very careful, because that's how other people see you. Those people include future university or college deans of administrations, Bosses and other important people in your life. In order to get accepted into any university or college, or get hired for a job, it is very likely for them to check you digital footprint. Know that whatever you post on your digital footprint has to be respectful and professional, because anyone has access to your digital footprint.
Describe at least three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.
Keeping your digital footprint appropriate and safe doesn’t mean that you should delete or not have social mediaF. It simply means that whatever you are going to tweet, post, comment, pin, or upload should be appropriate and safe. There are so many ways to help keep you in check. The first strategy is asking your self questions. Ask yourself, is this necessary? Would you want your mom seeing this? Is it useful? Is it respectful? By asking yourself these questions, you are making sure that whatever is going on your digital footprint is appropriate and safe. Another useful strategy is googling yourself. Googling yourself will show you what’s on your digital footprint and show you what everyone has access to. If you ever do find something that you don’t want on your digital footprint, simply delete or untag any unwanted stuff.
