Digital Footprint Assignment

1. How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities? Give at least two examples.

Most employers will look at your social media as a screening tool when applying for a job, and if they find something they deem unprofessional you may be rejected and not get the job.

If you have an impressive or positive digital footprint, you may be more likely to be accepted into post secondary schools and jobs.

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

Don’t post something if you might regret it or find it embarrassing in the future.

Remember that once you post or do something online you can’t get it back.

Do not share any personal information like address, phone number, or passwords.

Don’t post things to blackmail, insult, or hurt  other people.

3. If you could go back in time, is there anything that you would do differently online? Think of what advice you would pass on to your younger self or other students.

So far I have done nothing I regret online. Advice I would give myself or other people if you are going to do dumb that you might regret don’t do it online.
