  10. 10. Four categories of online adults based on online footprint concern: 1 ) Confident Creatives are the smallest of the four groups, comprising 17% of online adults. They say they do not worry about the availability of their online data, and actively upload content, but still take steps to limit their personal information. Young adults are most likely to fall into this group.
2) The Concerned and Careful fret about the personal information available about them online and take steps to proactively limit their own online data. One in five online adults (21%) fall into this category.
3) Despite being anxious about how much information is available about them, members of the Worried by the Wayside group do not actively limit their online information. This group contains 18% of online adults.
4) The Unfazed and Inactive group is the largest of the four groups—43% of online adults fall into this category. They neither worry about their personal information nor take steps to limit the amount of information that can be found out about them online.”~  Pew Internet & American Life Project ’s Digital Footprint Study (2007)
  11. 11. "Having a digital footprint is a good thing! You are in charge of your presence on the web – it’s up to you to make it what you want it to be. Presenting yourself as yourself, sharing your thoughts, developing deeper understandings about your professional learning, is what your digital footprint should (and can) be about." ~ Silvia Tolisano
  12. 12. Delicious "You probably have a personal library of professional books. You keep these books together and organized in one place because they have information that helps you do your job... Keeping a personal digital library is just as important and for the exactly the same reason." ~ David Warlick Social Bookmarking Tool Delicious
