Digital Footprint

  1. How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities? 

a. It could affect your future big time because the choices you make for your Socal media life is very sensitive. if you post something on Instagram thats very inappropriate or illegal it could give you a bad reputation, lets say your going to a collage and you got a scholarship for basketball and the coach sees it they will kick you out of the team or they will revoke your scholarship.

b. Lets say you are going to get your first job and you apply the manager or owner will possibly do a background check and he will come across your bad posts, that will make you not accepted to the job making you have a terrible reputation.


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

My first strategy is to think before you post because if you post without thinking something bad will happen in the near future regarding the photo your posted.

My second strategy is to turn off your location when your using Social media apps like snapchat and other stuff because some people will track you down and It won’t be that pleasant or safe.

And my third and final one is too post positive stuff not  illegal stuff like drugs and other stuff make sure your posting stuff that is positive for the Social media community.


3.  What information did you learn that you would pass on to other students? How would you go about telling them?

I would tell the younger people preferably people in middle school the problems that will occur in the future if you don’t watch what you say or post on social media. Also I would also advise them to make sure they don’t share their location , add random strangers and talk to random people online also they should always keep their accounts private and always accept people they know.


In conclusion, your digital footprint should be always in good and positive hands make sure that the things you post are not bad illegal or inappropriate and never ever tell a stranger your location make sure your location services are off it seriously helps!
