I took part in the digital footprint training from the University a wee while ago so I already felt pretty comfortable with this thing. But I thought I’d google my name again, just to keep an eye on how my footprint is looking these days, and these are my thoughts on my own footprint:
- it’s somewhat easier to see your footprint when you have an unusual name – it’s easy to find my twitter, university, work and researchgate profiles – so it’s important to think about what I’m posting
- it’s great to see my first PhD journal article appearing in the search 🙂
- you can get some interesting search results when your name is also a verb!
