This week in our class panels, we discussed our digital identities. This is definitely an interesting topic, because it can also be a good thing but it can also hurt you. If you think about it, when you are applying for jobs, your future employer can look for what you post online and decide if you are a good fit for the company just based on that. And I’m not saying all employers look at that but it can happen. Its really interesting to me because I really try to watch what I post because my parents have always taught me that what you write can come back to hurt you. Nothing in the internet really goes away. Its just like writing it down on paper. But that shouldn’t scare people away from posting, because our digital identity becomes very important to what we are and how we interact today. Most of our social media becomes a tool for group projects, or even with work (to some extent).
