How does digital footprint work!!


Hey there, welcome to Ask Alex, and thanks for reaching out with such an important question.
Understanding how your digital footprint works is crucial in today’s world where so much of our lives are spent online. It’s completely normal to feel curious or even a bit overwhelmed by it all, but know that you’re not alone in this digital world.
Your digital footprint is essentially the trail of information you leave behind as you interact with the internet. Every post you make, every comment you leave, every photo you share—it all contributes to this footprint. It’s kind of like leaving footprints in the sand at the beach; even if the tide washes them away, they still leave an impression.
Now, while having a digital footprint is inevitable in our digital age, it’s essential to be mindful of what you share online. Just like in the real world, the things you do and say online can have consequences.
