Thing 3 – Digital Footprint

This week’s topic introduces the idea of the digital footprint, i.e. the traces of an online presence one leaves behind. These can be traces the owner of the footprint leaves themselves (writings, social media posts, and so on) as well as traces left by the presence in the online activities of others (tagging in posts,… Read more Thing 3 – Digital Footprint

Footprints in the mud

What could be worse than someone finding and reading an old diary from your more angry, less self aware youth? I wonder about the stupid arguments I’ve had with strangers on social media because I’ve had too much coffee and not enough to do at the time. Will my potty mouth on Twitter be used … Continue reading Footprints in the mud

My Digital Footprint

I am currently reviewing the 23 Things on Digitalization. Reading about thing 3, Digital Footprint, made me wonder how much I am exposed to the Internet myself.

I value my privacy … Continue reading My Digital Footprint

Thing 3: Digital Footprint

Googled and searched myself on DuckDuckGo, here’s what I found – Yep that’s right. Nada. The only thing I found about myself are a few Facebook posts I’ve been tagged in my previous work. And that’s it. Myself do not show up on other search results as well (because I am bilingual so I tried my…

I’ve always tried hard to […]

Thing 3: Digital Footprint

Do you want to keep your professional and personal identities separate or … Continue reading Thing 3: Digital Footprint

Digital Security & About Me

The 23Things Thing was to do with the security settings on smartphones.  I think I’m probably OK on that front as I keep most things locked down.  Call me paranoid, but I don’t generally advertise my whereabouts.  If an app doesn’t need access to photos/mic/camera/location, why would I let it have access?  More to the […]

Digital footprint

I’ve just looked at Thing 3 which is focussing on a person’s digital footprint. How many of us give any amount of thought to what we’re putting online for the world to see?  I have, like many others, got a few e-mail addresses, 2 Twitter accounts, 2 Facebook accounts, a LinkedIn account and a Pinterest […]
