Managing your digital identity

Digital identity can be defined as all the online information and data specifically about you. 

Intentionally or unintentionally we create a “digital footprint” through online activity. This footprint is what makes up our Digital Identity. Each time you publish information/videos/photos online, post content, create a profile, contribute to online conversations and more it contributes to your digital identity in some way. Equally, when someone else publishes/tags information, pictures or videos relating to you, this also becomes part of your digital identity. 

It is important to learn how to manage and build a positive profile. The resources linked here will help you.
