How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities?
Right now, I have built a positive digital footprint through my achievements such as my science fair, and BC Summer Games. I think that my digital footprint will affect me in a good way, giving me opportunities like a good job, and I won’t have the disadvantages of having a bad digital footprint.
Three of my strategies to use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.
-Think before you post. How will this affect me, my future, and the people around me?
-Use appropriate language and act in a nice way, the way you would act in real life
-Do not add any personal information or pictures that would lead to you
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?
I don’t think I would want to change anything because I have already left a good digital footprint. Some advice I would give: don’t just focus on not leaving a negative footprint, do thing that will give you a good digital footprint that will grant you future opportunities. Also make sure to not share any personal info. If it is requested, just put fake information.
