"Footprints in the Digital Age"

            "Footprints in the Digital Age"  an article by Will Richardson  illustrates how important it is to have a  good profile online because you can be "googled" which can show good or bad things about you.  In this day and age it is easy for you to be tracked online and for people all over the world to see things you are doing whether they are good or bad. This new age of technological knowledge can be helpful for students future by showing their blog, twitter or Facebook which can be great resources when used correctly. Will Richardson talks about the fear of his daughters being searched and nothing monumental coming up or that noting shows up at all.
           The ideas that Will Richardson states in "Footprints in the The Digital Age" are true because as our world is becoming more technological it is important to have a good online presence. When a future employer is researching your background to find if you would be the right person for the job it is very impressive when you can have a blog of things you have done in school or about the vacation you went on. Like wise when they find your Facebook or Twitter they can see that you are very social  and even have a look at what is going on in your life. An online portfolio is another great way to reach out to people. When they can see a video of you catching the football or a video of your debate from debate team they are much more likely to be impressed than when someone gives them a stack of papers. It has become even more important to be online but you must also have a diverse and interesting. If you post about the book that have just read or about special places you may have been that shows that you have deeper background and are more literate online and with people. We also need to be smart with our online profiles because one mistake like, posting a picture drinking underage can hurt your job potential in the future. Today all the time we are leaving digital footprints online for people to follow so we should make them good.
