Your Digital Footprint
Every day, whether we want to or not, most of us contribute to a growing portrait of who we are online – a portrait that is probably more public than we assume. This portrait helps companies target content at specific markets and consumers, helps employers look into your background, and helps advertisers track your movements across multiple websites. Whatever you do online, you might be leaving digital footprints behind. This course gives you an understanding of the different trails that you are leaving on the Internet and how this might affect you. While it is not possible to have zero digital footprints, the first steps toward reducing your digital footprint and managing your digital identity are simple.
