  1. 1. Digital Footprints<br />
  2. 2. In Cyberspace…<br />Don’t assume anything you send or post is going to remain private.<br />There is no changing your mind in cyberspace—anythingyou send or post will never truly go away.<br />Don’t give in to the pressure to do something that makesyou uncomfortable, even in cyberspace.<br />Consider the recipient’s reaction.<br />Nothing is truly anonymous. <br />
  3. 3. Your Media is NEVER deleted!<br />Cambridge researchers posted pictures to sixteen websites, noting the direct URL to the image, and then deleted the original. They reopened the URLs over a period of 30 days to see whether the pictures were accessible and found that images were still visible on five sites at the end of that month. This is possible because the files remain in photo server caches of the underlying content delivery network (CDN) after they have been cleared from indices that provide data for dynamic pages (such as profiles) and search results. The terms of service for these sites indicate that deletion may not be immediate, with Facebook likening the process to putting a file in the Recycle Bin.<br /><br />
  4. 4. Way Back Machine<br />Social networks have been used to post content to embarrass or intimidate students, so it is important for learners to understand that the consequences of such actions may last even longer than they expected. Not only may content remain in caches and backups, but it can be copied to third party sites or be captured in archives without your knowledge or permission, such as the Wayback Machine.<br />

  10. 10. Clean UP!<br />&quot;I know for a fact that when a superintendent in Missouri was interviewing potential teachers last year, he would ask, &apos;Do you have a Facebook or MySpace page?&apos; &quot; said Todd Fuller, a spokesman for the Missouri State Teachers Association, which is warning members to clean up their pages. &quot;If the candidate said yes, then the superintendent would say, &apos;I&apos;ve got my computer up right now. Let&apos;s take a look.&apos; &quot; <br />

Pictures from the party showed him in a<br />black-and-white striped shirt and an orange jumpsuit labeled &quot;Jail Bird.”<br /><br />

  19. 19. What is YOUR digital footprint?<br /><br />
  20. 20. What Can YOU Do?<br />
  21. 21. Clean Up Social Networking Site<br />1. Take control of your photos. Your personal and professional life are becoming one, largely due to Facebook. Go through what you have on your social network & untag yourself in photos that an employer might find inappropriate. <br />2. Set privacy settings. You have less reason to worry if employers can’t access your digital life. <br />3. Post photos that promote you as a professional. If you have photos from volunteering, studying abroad, working a job, giving a presentation, or any other semi-professional event, post them. They go a long way to help counteract other photos that might negatively impact your image.<br />4. Put up a clean profile photo of yourself. Even if you got a lot of compliments on your stripper halloween costume, a profile picture that isn’t associated raucous college partying means a lot to people in hiring positions. <br />5) Stay active online. By commenting on blogs and forums, updating your profiles, and even creating your own site you can become much more visible and credible online. This gives the people who search you a much more comprehensive picture of who you are and allows you to highlight the good and bury the bad<br />6. Be mindful of who you accept as a “Friend.” Poor choices could reflect badly on you as a professional. Make sure to monitor their comments on your sites as well.<br />
