Information you put online is like a tattoo:

Activity #1- Digital Tattoo Debate
Consider the reasons someone might want to search about you online?

Activity #2- Digital Tattoo Search
Search the name your group has been given using:
MIT’s Personas at http://personas.media.mit.edu/
www.archive.org’s Wayback Machine
Discuss your impressions of this person based on what you found online. For example,
What did you find out about the person being searched?
Was all the information accurate?
What do you think is missing?
What does this exercise tell us about data mining?
How might your digital tattoo compare to the one searched?
Elect someone to share your observations with the group.
What you should know…
If you’ve ever been online, people can find out about it
Less privacy than you would think
Caching by websites means what you put online is hard to delete

What you can do about it…

Be proactive… Connect!
The internet allows you to:
connect to a greater number of people faster & more easily
access information from wherever you are located
You already network online socially or recreationally but…
… have you considered how you might exploit these skills to further your academic and professional careers as well?
Create something you want everyone to see:
Publish your research
Your digital presence and online connections
could contribute significantly to your academic
and professional future.

can get in real time.
Twitter gives access to both professional
journalists and the view from the ground.
