Digital Footprint

A digital footprint is the collection of all the traces you leave in electronic environments as you use or move through them. Some is content you actively volunteer—like your Facebook profile. Other material is passive—the cookies a site stores in your browser, the content your district collects about your use of their equipment, etc. All this data can be aggregated to build a profile of you and your behavior.

Tips for Creating a Positive Digital Footprint

  • Always THINK
  • Never post anything that you might find embarrassing later.
  • Be careful with the pictures you post on your public profiles. Remember others will see them and judge you based on their content.
  • Change the privacy settings on your social networking sites so that only your Friends can see your information
  • Do not disclose your personal address, phone number, passwords. Bank card numbers…etc even in private messages. There is always the possibility of somebody hacking into your account and finding them.
  • Do not post things to bully, hurt, blackmail, insult, or afflict any kind of harm on others
  • Always keep in mind that once information has been posted online, it can be almost impossible to remove because of archiving and file sharing. Even though you deactivate your accounts, the information may still be retrieved by others.

Break The Fake – Statistics & facts about how vending machines have a higher annual death rate for humans compared to annual deaths caused by shark attacks

  1. I was browsing the web about some shark facts, and I came upon this website called insider that was talking about animals that aren’t as dangerous as other people think. In the picture I included below, it says that only around 6 people die from sharks each year, and that means that you’re more likely to die from a falling vending machine. I decided to do more research on this fact to see if it was actually real or not.


2. After some more research on the fact, I found another website that included a statistical photo that was made by the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System website/organization. The picture shows the total shark attacks, how many were fatal and non fatal in each year, and finally totaled it up to 6 fatal shark attacks for around 9 years. Of course the statistics were a bit in the past, but only by a year and a half from now basically. I decided to check the website to see if it was trustable.


3. Right off the bat, it looks pretty trustable to me, it has a good format for a statistical based website and it doesn’t look like something a fake website would spend so much time on, I decided to dig deeper in the next photo.



4. At the bottom of the website page it has links to almost everything that you can contact them on, which leads me to believe that they are even more trustable for creating these social media accounts for their website, they also provide a phone number which you can contact them on.


I fully trust that these facts and statistics are true and not false, also backed up with my research.
