I didn’t find much about myself on Google and DuckDuckGo, but what I did find was terribly out of date. My LinkedIn profile picture was an inappropriate professional choice and the information old and not a reflection of my current professional role.
I’ve reviewed my platform privacy settings as a result of this module, and a ‘contacts review’ is up next.
I didn’t know I could limit people who are able to tag me in photos and messages, so that was a great learning.
As a mum, I have spoken to my daughter about the Digital Footprint topic and hope that she will heed the message to think carefully before comments or photos.
