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.
A recent survey from AVG, an online security company, found that 81% of kids under the age of 2 have some kind of “ digital footprint” online, usually in the form of e-mail accounts, social networking pages and photos posted on the Web . http://www.mainstreet.com/article/smart-spending/technology/baby-steps-81-infants-have-digital-footprint
