  • There is a myriad of new tools, and they are all changing… so best to get away from a tool focus

  • Do you curate your own image, or that of your organisation? Have you googled yourself, and what about when people tag you, as in the picture of me at the top, at a festival. I didn’t know that person was tagging me in that photo that he put online. I don’t mind, but there are lots of examples of people being tagged in situations they don’t want to share. It takes time to find out and to change. And then what about pictures of children on the web – tagged by parents of their friends, at birthday parties, for example.
