cleaning up your digital footprint post graduation #mdfp


So you have got yourself into a digital mess. Pictures that are not fitting for the new image, blog posts that are not so in thinking with the new role, friends who are just links and you need it all cleaned up. 

Alas life coaches and other ‘social engineers’ are re-branding and emerging with a promise that they will come and save you.  The guarantee is that they will clean it all up and start again…. 

Please don’t fall for anyone who promises to clean up your digital past.   Just a quick change of name, a new profile or a new privacy setting is not the answer, neither is deleting, re-starting, clearing cookies or buying a new computer as this is only the data that is in your control.  The content you need to think about is what others have said about you, not what you say about yourself.
