  • I like your strategies for managing your digital footprint. I have not heard of Google Alert. I will look into it. Although researching my name I learned that I share it with an award winning filmmaker and actress from England. I might not want to be alerted every time she is in the news. I like the idea setting up to separate accounts for FB. I will do that in the future if my school will allow a teacher account to interact with students. I have not been very involved with other social networks like linked in. Do you find it valuable? I have an account because I had to for a class but haven't used it lately.

  • Your ideas are great for managing your digital footprint. I had never heard of Google Alert and I plan on using it for myself. The steps that you have taken will ensure that your professional image is maintained. One of the greatest challenges I face is keeping my personal and professional life separate. I am a highly private person and I am not fond of mingling the two. However, what I have read in the articles I researched is that it is important to include some personal information in the professional portfolio. I am not sure I am ready to do this, however, I can see the value of personality and life experience in creating a positive digital footprint. You did a great job! Thanks for sharing.
