creating a positive digital footprint
in this infographic, I talked about how to change your digital footprint and some negative consequences of not protecting your online self. I used sway to create it and got the pictures off sway as well.
Personal/Social Competency Reflection
My digital footprint can have both positive and negative consequences like when going into a new job your boss or the person interviewing you will look you up to see how they could benefit from hiring you and if it will affect them in a positive way or in a negative way. If you are disrespectful online and are extremely rude they are less likely to hire you because it’ll affect them negatively. But if you are respectful and are kind and handle things rashly they have more reason to hire you because it will benefit them. I make sure i’m respectful online and try my best to have a positive footprint. I do this by not yelling at someone when I disagree with them and if I feel the need to talk to them I will do so in privavte and talk it out with them in a calm matter.
One goal I have is to have a small footprint. I don’t want random strangers the have my information so posting less and making my accounts private should help. I also plan to find old accounts from when I was little and delete them.
I make an ethical choice to not be as present on social media as others are. So that people I don’t know or don’t want in my life can’t have my personal information. In today’s society not being on social media twenty-four seven takes a lot of connections away from peers because of how heavily we use it. A huge chunk of our generation is on our phone so taking a step back leaves a wedge and can be a challenge to continue to do.
