Digital footprint

As social media is becoming such a huge part in our life’s we often forget the harm it could bring us like cyber bullying. Now people are on social media more than ever before and they would share the smallest details like what they ate or where they would be going. The problem is people are giving away information like for say I post a picture of me at the airport and most of people have their privacy visible in terms any stranger could see my post going back to example any stranger could see my post and realize that I am not home and probably just break into my house.

One thing that we often forget to do is actually read the terms and conditions I myself also would the same but we don’t realize that is that when we check the accept and continue button we are technically giving them authority over us without reading the terms would could give away any sort of private information like our locations and our passwords. All of your information whether its private or even minor like our address is all in the hands of the manufacturer without reading the condition/terms would result in this type of situation. Once manufacturer have your info they could give these type of info like your interest to other companies that would send you adds that would be related towards your interests.

One thing we could all learn is that not everything is suppose to be posted on social media somethings are just there to be remembered in our memories. Just by searching up someone’s name could give lots of information about a person just by looking at their recent posts that were updated on social media. It could bring harm to anyone and that is something to keep on mind. The decision is ours to make wheteher is it right to upload this onto web or on a social media app.

    This was a very well done blog. I think you should let the reader open the links in different tabs so they don’t have to go back and forth to read your blog and the information in the links. This blog can really help people be more careful and safe.

    Wow! This is a very great and informative blog about your digital footprint. I appreciated the pictures because it helped me visualize what you were righting about. The video was also good to add just to keep the readers interested in your blog and giving them something other than text was very good. Can’t wait for your next blog post.

    It’s scary that our digital footprint is so thorough and extensive. It seems that we have no privacy in this day and age.

    Very interesting blog Hamza. I like how you put in that video at the end so we have a better idea of what your talking about. It is quite scary that our personal information is out there. Seems like we don’t have much privacy in this orld.
