This is a one-hour discussion on Tuesday on the significance of social media and online presence on employability and professionalism.
When we use the internet, especially social sites, we leave a mark which is sometimes called our digital footprint. The size of your footprint will depend on many things, such as the number of sites you use, how intently you use them and your impact on other users of the site. It is also possible to have multiple footprints, for example if you use separate digital identities. Your digital identity is the term for how you present yourself online. This can be a complex topic as people go about it in different ways. Some people like to use separate accounts for personal or professional use of social media, and might even have additional accounts for special interests, each of these accounts would represent a unique digital identity. In this session we will have a look at what our digital footprints reveal about ourselves.
Join the debate online, whether you are in the session or not, by tweeting your thoughts with the hashtag #dffootprint.
There will be a short team presentation followed by a discussion.
