Digital footprint

Online business is everyone’s business

As soon as we go online our digital footprint begins.

How we look after it is how future generations will understand and see our culture. What you text and post goes further than your own mob’s country.

So it’s really important that we build a strong digital footprint by being deadly in everything you say and do online.

Texting and using social networking sites shapes what people think of you... now and into the future.

  • A bad digital footprint can:

  • damage friendships
  • break relationships
  • hurt job chances
  • bring shame to your mob.
  • It can lead to payback and violencebetween families and community.

So how do I make a strong digital footprint?

You’re in control of what you do online.
