Your digital footprint

Your digital footprint

Nearly everybody uses social networks now, but you must evaluate the information you put out there. Will it be relevant in a few years time?, is it accurate?, would you be happy for anyone to see it?, including prospective employers.

Your internet profile is also known as your digital footprint. Look at this video by Steve Johnston - it will give you some food for thought. Can't see the video?- you can watch it on the Educator's PLN website.

A note of caution was raised by a recent case which shows the need for care. There is good advice on personal information safety on the site of the Information Commissioner's Office which is also where you can find information on the Data Protection Act and the Freedom of Information Act.
