• Simply put, a digital footprint is the amount of content, whether it
be words, photographs, audio, or video, that is traceable back to
a given individual. Parts of your digital footprint include
photographs uploaded to sites like flikr, blog posts attributed to
you on Blogger, video files you uploaded to YouTube, posts you
wrote on your friends' Facebook Walls, and posts to your
Facebook wall by your friends. Content like this makes up your
digital footprint. Two things are most notable about the Digital
Footprint - first, like all information on the Internet, it can be
permanent; second, more and more of us have begun to actively
search out the digital footprint of our peers and are influenced by
what we find, both in opinion and in action.
