This activity was a real eye opener. The activity where I accessed the settings on my IPhone and examined the security settings was a learning curve. I can see that I will need to spend time to learn more and re set to a high level of security the setting I have on all my apps on my phone. will need to do this soon and spend the time.
In the step three of Edinburgh University 23 digital things I read the article on Digital footprints. The exercise required me to search for my name in Good and to examine the results. I share the similar name with the deceased Hollywood TV actor Michael Landon. His surname was without a G after Lan/. Google found many postings for him.
What was interesting was how Google found my Social profile on Facebook, it also listed a happy birthday posting I had sent today to a friend, this was at the top of my Facebook page. I was unaware that the setting on my Facebook profile were so public and allowed what I had written to be publicly seen. I need to learn how to edit my Facebook privacy settings.
The other Google search results retrieved website profile of other people with my same name of for Michael Langdon. These include LinkedIn profiles, Twitter accounts and other Facebook profiles in the name of Michael langdon. There were for other men with the same name as mine. I did also se my UTS library profile and photo in the google list. It was a learning experience have search my name in Google.
From completing 23 things my aim is to expand my data and digital skills set. This is the beginning of my journey digital literacy.
