Digital Footprints

A Digital Footprint is the record of your interaction with the digital world.  You leave a trail of your digital footprints whenever you use technology online. This includes digital cameras, smart phones, iPods, tablets, laptops and computers.

Your footprints contains bits of information about you. They could include your name, nickname or other personal information like your date of birth or address. They could let people know about what you like, are interested in and the things you like to do. Some of this information we leave out there knowingly, other things we may not even realise we have left.

It is important for young people to aware of what they post, what it says about them and what impacts it can make on their future.
