Footprints in the Digital Age

“Footprints in the Digital Age” by Will Richardson demonstrates how easy it is for people to find you on the internet and how when you do something online you can never erase it. The fact that everything you’ve ever posted on facebook or anything anyone has ever said about you true or not is permanently on  the internet and can never be taken off is frightening. Some people also believe that everything that is said is true so if someone posts something on their web page about something you didn’t actually do it’ll be on there forever and people who don’t even know you will think differently about you.
The reason Richardson is so worried about what goes on the internet is because he has children who go on it all the time and post stuff about their lives. The thing is that they don’t understand that what they’re posting right now can affect them 20 yrs from now. Parents everywhere should be scared about their children going online and playing games or having facebooks. Kids don’t realize that whenever they post something online its up there forever even if they think that they can take it off people will always have a way of getting it. If you really think about that long and hard you realize that that’s scary and not a life anyone would actually want. Everyone messes up and people forget but if you mess up online then it’s stuck with you forever and no one will ever forget because it’ll keep coming back up. There are ways that you can go online and not do anything bad by not making accounts and putting safeties on it but most people don’t use it. Some people think that by doing this their children will be safe but this isn’t necessarily true, kids are a lot smarter than parents give them credit for and they can sometimes find a way to turn off those safeties and that can end up making everything worse for them in the future. The internet can be a fun safe place if you know how to use it some children shouldn’t be aloud to go on it unless if their parents are by their sides.

  1. Spencer- good summary, but make sure to eliminate all personal words. Maybe explain some of Richardson's ideas and attribute the ideas back to him. End with a concluding statement.

    With your response, you need to take a position and prove it with a why statement. Make sure you compose your examples as more specific. Give details to help illustrate the point you are trying to get across. Wrap up your paragraph with a concluding sentence.
