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

Today I saw heard in Mr. Alvero’s block 5 class that China was operating 5 police stations in Vancouver so when I got back home to decided to do some research because I questioned who the mysterious “Group” From this CBC story was and if they were just fake as a nameless group was a bit suspicious to me

CBC Article: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/china-operating-police-station-in-vancouver-1.6675279

So I started with SNOPES.com but I didn’t find

any articles to back up this claim

(Image is at the bottom)

So i searched it in google and it came to a different CBC article talking about investigating these chinese “Police” Stations

which didn’t Include the number of stations in vancouver but said that there where over 50 worldwide like the other one but proved that they existed which wasn’t exactly what i was looking for but right below it there was a little quip saying it was a human rights group The Safeguard Defenders which was proof for me that this was real and just in case this group was just words i searched for their name and i found their site looking very legitimate to me and them having done a lot of great things in the name of human rights I concluded my search with:

With all this information from all these sites and different organisations i can confidently say that this information is real
