      Digital footprint is the word to describe a set of digital activities, actions or communications that people leave online. This is information transmitted online, such as forum registration, emails and attachments, uploading videos or images and any other form of transmission of information, all of which leaves traces of personal information about yourself available to others online.
      I use LinkedIn for professional purposes. It is a great tools for job research and for connect with people that work in your same area. Also is good to stay up to date with the latest news.

      Hi, everyone. I thank to Monika what describe me what is a digital footprint because I have never heard this term before. Every day we use our digital device and leave many digital footprints: for searching information, connecting with people, learning English, writing programs and etcetera. If one day we walk up and we recognize what we don’t have the internet connection, we suddenly can’t do anything. I have an account on facebook many years, but I almost have not used it before we have planned to come to Canada. Now I take a part in many groups about Winnipeg and immigration to Winnipeg and I ask questions and help to other people what want to come there with their questions about Winnipeg. I use my account only for personal information’ share my family pictures only with friends, I try to be friendly with people what I chat with, I don’t connect with unpleasant people ( or people what I think they are unpleasant ). I think what the best place for a professional purpose is Linkedin and not Facebook. My husband found the job when he starts to use Linkedin.

      Hi everyone, the most easy way to understand this term (digital footprint) is… The Information about a natural or legal person that exists on the Internet (or in every single electronic device) as a result of their online activity… your DFP, make a detalied photo of who you are…
      And that’s why is one of the most important bussiness of the last 20 years, to give you and example, if by “accident” you are looking a wristwacht in AMAZON and then you go to youtube to whatch a video what do you think is the first advertise that you going to see?
      how we said in my home country… DFP is necessary evil… depend on how you spend your time using the phone app, web sites and social networks will be very positive your footprintall.

      Hello Ghazala, thanks for sharing what you understood about digital footprints! You are right. our digital footprint could affect our online reputation as you mentioned ” postively or negatively” depending on the kind of activity that takes place online. Because of that, it is of great importance that we make sure to be respectful of others and be good digitial citizens. Thanks for sharing! :)

      Thanks for sharing what caught your attention in that evening’s session! You are right; our digital footprint is of significant importance and tells a lot about who we are, our online activities and how we engage wih others online. I totally agree with you that we should ” respect all types of people” when our social media interactions.

      Hello Ghazala,

      Thanks for sharing what you learned during the past weeks! I’m glad that you found the information useful. You mentioned LinkedIn and the importance of using it to market yourself digitally by uploading your resume and networking with other professionals. You are right! It’s a great tool to ask others in your professional network to endorse you or offer you a reference. Hope you can make use of it in the near future!
      Best,
      Pam
