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 read the document on e-Professionalism and recognized that I have already considered many of these points in my personal use of social media.

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…

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 […]

Thing 3 & 4: Digital Footprint and Digital Security
