So, let’s discuss reasons why your digital footprint matters. First and most important, your digital footprint will be seen by others and you will be judged by it. This means that if you intend on applying for cégeps, universities or employment opportunities, be prepared that your online profiles and activities will be searched and evaluated before you get hired or accepted. A way of seeing what your digital footprint looks like is to Google your name. Does the information about you help or ruin your reputation? Always think before you post anything about yourself or others. You may believe no one is watching, but actually the whole world is watching. Be careful about what you post since it will be in the digital world forever, even if you take it down later.
