There are some parts of our digital footprint that we have control over but unfortunately there are others that we do not:

    • Do you ever post things online about your friends?

    • Do you comment on or tag their posts or photos? How do you decide what is okay?

    • Brainstorm a list of questions that someone should ask him- or herself before posting anything about another person

Examples :    " Do I know my friend’s feelings about what he (or she) would want posted?"
