About a month ago Mr. ???? walked into my classroom and asked my class… What is a digital footprint? I’m pretty sure everyone well almost everyone knew what it was and he asked us to do this home work so… yea.
1.How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities?
Well if you have never really heard of a digital footprint before then…(just one thing HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING UNDER A ROCK? ;3) even if you did know most of you wouldn’t really think twice before sharing or posting what your doing or a cute photo of you with your friends. It could affect you in the distant future……. For example, I could be applying at a job and there trying to find a COOL AND AWESOME or kind,mature,responsible and outgoing person. You go for a interview and it goes great they say “we will call you if you have got the job.” But they actually look at your social media? So they DO A SUPER AWESOME SECURITY SCAN ON IT Im kidding they just look at it, and see something on my social media that makes them realize they don’t want to hire me. Another example could be.. I just moved to a new school(WHICH I HOPE WILL NEVER HAPPEN) and I met all these new people.(probably be a loner till next year) Im trying to figure out who I really want to become friends with. So after school I go and look at there social media and they’ve posted something that’s literally disgusting to me like drugs & stuff I will never want that person to be my friend because now i think of that person differently. Think about how your digital footprint will appear to other people…
2.Describe at least 3 strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint safe…
1. Really think before you post something(but you probably wont) because you never know who will see it in the long run(Boss,parents etc.)… Never post things that you don’t want others to know about or that you wouldn’t say to someone’s face.
2. Never give out you’re personal things online(name,address,phone number online etc.)
3. Don’t use social media stuff(At least thats what i do.)
3.What information did you learn that you would pass on to other students? How would you go about telling them?
One thing I would pass on to other students is that…Sure its so much fun to post awesome things & memes for your friends to see what your up to, but even if your on private sometimes being on private doesn’t really mean your totally safe and private. So my advice is honestly just always be aware because social media can get out of hand sometimes and remember that your digital footprint could set up your future. ( I BARELY USE SOCIAL MEDIA)
P.S. Btw when i searched my name up on google i found nothing on me like ZIPPO i only found a female celebrity i think?
