The digital footprint won't wash away soon...
ACTION PLAN: DO's and DON'Ts
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
What is the difference between a footprint and a digital footprint?
it's here to stay!
Therefore, we must be informed, conscious, mindful, wise, educated, and proactive!
Set Up Your
Keep your FB page for your personal life, interests,etc.
Use Twitter for Personal Learning Network (PLN) and Ongoing Professional Development
Maintain high academic standards and integrity - think critically of what you read and share and give the credit when referencing others' work.
No matter what platform you are using, keep it for a professional, high quality, high standard, engaging, and meaningful conversation.
your skills, and
- what is my priority now?
- why am I posting this?
- who is going to see/read my post?
- what impact/difference may it make?
- how can it be used by others?
- can it be copied, saved, and shared?
- how will this be interpreted by my
students and employer (at minimum?)
Would you ever appear in front of your students, colleagues, bosses, employees, etc.
If NOT, why to post a picture of THAT?
Do not post if it only can be posted
"secretly" or "privately"
Privacy is an illusion - sooner or later,
that post will be available to anyone.
To Sum Up:
Create your "Intentional Web Presence" and become well-known in your field.
"Start following people and subjects that are relevant to your industry (or in the industry you want to be in). Remember, Twitter is an interest network, not a social network."
"If Google cannot find a faculty scholar's work or the work of the scholar's colleagues, department, or institution, then it is essentially irrelevant — even nonexistent — because people will not find, read, apply, or build on the work if they cannot locate it via a quick Google search.
Building a web presence is more than simply having a website and can make the difference in an academic's visibility to the desired audience and opportunities for new projects and collaborations."
-Manage Your Twitter Time – Know that Twitter can be "a sucking vortex of time."
"Take your private life offline altogether"
"Silence is better than unmeaning words."
"Words are made of silver, but silence is made of gold."
Portuguese Proverb quotes
"Silence is one of the hardest arguments to refute."
Josh Billings quotes
posting only because technology is available 24/7/365
"There is No Delete Button on the Web"
"And although the information you put out on the Web may seem insignificant today, you have to ask the question of whether it will be insignificant tomorrow, or in five years when you need to apply for college or seek new employment. Additionally, you have to ask yourself whether you're just leaving more junk for the next generation to clean up."

- "Many people use timers and tweet in short burst of 5 to 15 minutes."
Decide how much time you want to allocate to Twitter and be "strict about managing your Twitter time."
Finally, do not sacrifice "quality" for "quantity."
Building your digital footprints takes time; yet, the content is "the king".
Slow down. Set a goal. Have a vision. Make a plan. Stick to it. Do it.
