CSA #25 Navigating Social Media- Your Digitial Resume (Seniors)

Every day, whether we want to or not, most of us contribute to a growing portrait of who we are online; a portrait that is probably more public than most of us assume. So no matter what you do online, it’s important that you know what kind of trail you’re leaving, and what the possible effects can be. Your digital footprint is not only formed by what you post, but also what others put online about you. During this academy we will discuss ways that you can manage your digital footprint to make the best impression online.
