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.

poachers (information fluency)

Poaching is a very big and unsolved problem all around the world. Poaching is the illegal killing and trade of mainly endangered animal body parts. This problem is very harmful to ecosystems and animal populations which is why there are many groups trying their hardest to stop it. I had known of this trade before reading the article, but I did not understand how dangerous it is. Poaching is a multibillion-dollar trade that includes very dangerous and powerful people. There has been around 1000 park rangers killed since 2006 because of their attempt of stopping the poachers. I wonder if poaching is illegal all around the world? I also wonder if a poacher got caught and accused of poaching and murder how long would they have in prison? I find it awful that this whole trade is driven by money with no regards to animal life or the planet. I think that it is very important to get the word about poaching out so that more people work to reduce it. I think unfortunately this trade will never be able to be fully stopped with the amount of money involved but I do think it could be slowed.
