Audio description for The interview

Don't let your online life affect your real life.

Your digital reputation is defined by your behaviours in the online environment and by the content that you post about yourself and others.

Tagged photos, blog posts and social networking interactions will all shape how you are perceived by others online and offline, now and in the future.

A poor digital reputation can affect your friendships, relationships and even your job prospects - so protect your digital reputation.

How do I protect my digital reputation?

  • Think before you post, send or blog!
  • Treat others as you would like to be treated.
  • Set your profile to private—and check every now and then to make sure the settings haven’t changed.
  • Keep an eye on photos tagged by your friends and remove ones that are offensive.

Remember, online information could be there forever. Your personal information may end up being seen by people you don’t know, including potential employers.
