What is a Digital Footprint?
Digital Footprint: A word used to describe the trail, traces, or “footprints” that people leave online
Digital life is both public and permanent. Everything we do online creates digital footprints that migrate and persist. Something that happens on the spur of the moment – a funny picture, an angry post – can resurface years later. And if we aren’t careful, our reputations can be harmed. In addition, a bad digital footprint can affect our future livelihood. Colleges now are checking the social media postings of potential students, and employers are doing the same for applicants. A few bad clicks can ruin your reputation, hurt your changes for admission to college and prevent you for getting the job you really want one day!
