This isn’t the last you’ll see of me

Prior to this module, my presence online was not as successful as I had believed. Re-reading my pre-module quiz highlights how little I knew about having an Online Presence, including my own.

By reading Sophie’s blog, I quickly discovered we have opposing opinions. I believe we should present ourselves professionally at all times on the web, Sophie believes we should use social media for its social purpose: establishing we both use social media differently.

Topic 2: “Who am I then?”

Online identity: the sum of the characteristics and interactions you make online. These may be personal identities, created by you or profiles made for you. We always need to be careful with what we leave behind on the web, being conscious of our digital footprint.
