The image you project: your digital identity
Do you post pictures, texts or videos of yourself on the internet? These leave traces that define your digital identity on the web. Do you know that once this information is on the net, it is almost impossible to remove it?
The image others have of you: your digital reputation
From the traces we leave on the net, what image do others have of us? Is it a positive or negative image? Would you be comfortable if a future employer saw it? The image that people create of you from the web is called your digital reputation.
The image we project of someone else
Have you ever posted on the internet pictures, videos or texts about your friends, teachers or employers? These posts can hurt and even have serious consequences on their reputation. In some cases, they could lead to accusations that you are cyberbullying and even legal action against you.
Right to one’s own image
Is it legal to post a picture of someone else? Many people do not know that using images (photos or videos) of someone else without their consent is illegal and you can be criminally charged for doing so.
