What is my online reputation?
Your online reputation is the perception, estimation and opinion that is formed when you are encountered online. This could be when someone visits your social networking profile, but could also be when anyone reads a comment you posted on another profile. It could also be when someone sees your online photo albums or an image with you in it, indeed any instance or reference of you that either you posted or someone else did – what your digital footprint says about you.
Your online reputation will be formed through:
- Postings by you
- Postings by others but about you or linked to you
- Postings by others pretending to be you.
Who does it affect?
Everyone! Obviously it applies to those who post online; however, as other people could be posting information about you, you don’t even have to have been on the Internet before to have an online reputation! Rory Cellan-Jones commente
