Digital Footprint Assignment

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

By not having a digital footprint if an employer looks up my name they won’t see anything positive or negative. Firstly this could affect my opportunities by them not having enough information about me give me the opporunity. Secondly, this could affect my opportunity because if I eventually post something bad a person could build their opinion of my based on that one thing, Rather than if I post ten good things and one bad thing it is a ten to one ratio I will look better.

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

Firstly post less. If you post a new thing every day rather than once a month you have less time to think about the consequences and effects of your post on your profile. Secondly run it by someone you trust. if you run it by someone else they can tell can provide an unbiased opinion on your post and tell you if you should or should not post that thing.

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.

To be completely honest I don’t regret anything I’ve done in the past, simply because I haven’t posted anything online to regret or change yet. I would recommend other students to do the same as people can not hold anything against you haven’t posted anything at all.
