Digital Identity

January 31, 2021 0 By Brandon Rumford

This may be a little late but we were tasked with exploring our own digital identity and finding out what about us is online. After going through my social medias, I found that I do have a few accounts people could find me through. I have a account for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and of course my blog. Most of my accounts are fairly private and I can control who sees my account. My Instagram account is private, that way anyone who wants to see my posts have to be given permission to follow me. As well, my Facebook is restricted so only friends can see what I post or see other information. My YouTube account also has all my videos hidden, so no one can see my past school projects from grade 8, because who wants to see that. My Twitter and blog are both public but they are strictly professional and I am okay with people seeing these accounts.

Looking at everything as a whole, I would say that I am happy with my digital identity. Looking at my Twitter and blog shows who I am as a student as well as an aspiring teacher. And my other accounts are more for my personal life, kept private and giving me control over who can see these accounts. I would not say there is anything I do not want people to see on my private accounts. But I would like to keep my personal life separated from my future career. There are a few things I could do to improve my digital identity. One thing simply being to take care in what I post online and know who can see what I post. As well as making sure others posts about me are appropriate with my career to be in teaching.
