Have you googled yourself lately? What does the Internet search reveal about you? With each hash tag, blog post, tweet, and online project at a time, you are building your online reputation whether you want to or not. In the absence of professional branding, your online persona brands you. The perception of your digital artifacts (e.g., comments, images, projects) defines your online persona. Practice steps to safeguard your data and plan to benevolently shape your online persona(s). Conduct basic online identity system checks (e.g., Google reverse image search, Google Alerts, & search engine comparisons of name) to review your current digital footprint. Reflect on tasks for short- and long-term planning of prevention and/or weeding. Recommended readings and checklists for cybersecurity and online data curation will be shared along with the Author’s brief technology manifesto.
