No matter your age, whenever you are online, your digital reputation is being established. That reputation, or digital footprint, is an insight into who you are. What you say, post, like, or share all make up what others will see as you go through life.

And believe it or not, even a thumbs up or thumbs down emoji at the right (or wrong) time, might say a lot about you.

By using tools like our Digital Reputation Checklist, you can take control of your online persona and maintain a positive image of who you are – whether you just joined a platform recently or are well-versed in social media.
