1. How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities? Give at least two examples.
The things you put out onto the internet can be positive or negative and can affect you in the future. For instance, when you are looking for a job, employers might have the chance to take a look at your social media or come across on eof your posts. if you post something that they wont like to see, like for example, a photo of you vanalizing a park bench, then they might think twice about the person they think you are. Another Example of this can be when you are attempting to make friends. If you let a classmate or someone else at school follow you , they will get a chance to see your posts and decide if you are the person they would talk to or not.
2. Describe at least three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.
You can start off with not posting any personal information online. This can be seen by everyone. Do not put anything ike your home address, full name, or where you live anywhere on the internet because it could get into the wrong hands. Another way to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe is to not associate with suspicious accounts\ people. They might scam you, blackmail you, adn more. The last strategy is to not share any photos, videos, information, etc.. about other people without their consent. psoting information about others could be unwated to them and they don’t want others to see this peice of info, the photo or the video.
3. If you could go back in time, is there anything you would do differently online? Think of what type of advice you would pass on to your younger self or other students. How could you go about explaining it to them?
The only thing i would tell my past self is to not let anyone you dont know follow you on social media. i would tell her that some of the people i dont know on my account could possibly be of ill intentions. I shouldnt be letting them know my information, therefore they shouldn’t be on my account, which used to state what school i went to. That is antoehr thing i would tell my past self to remove.
