>> you can but it's kind of difficult to do it. because it makes the internet not usable. >> okay. >> cuz if you start blocking cookies and cache, it is kind of like location services on your phone. if you turn it completely off, you can't use gps. >> yeah. >> it's kind of like the same scenario. the other side of digital footprint you have to be careful of is social media. because when you go out there and rant about how angry and upset you are about something. >> right. >> it actually could affect future job opportunities. >> this is true. >> you hear a lot about this. >> it's actually true. people are now going to facebook to look up a person and see what their digital footprint is, because your digital footprint tells a person what you are like. >> okay, i have a question. >> yeah. >> could i find out what my friend's digital footprint is. >> great question, how do you think could you find out what your friend's dij tat footprint is. >> i don't know. >> you go search google in fact f you want to see what, or being or whatever internet browser, if you want to see what your digital 23509 print s michelle money, go online an search up michelle money and see what comes up it will be a very interesting thing. >> it will show every single thing that i have ever, like will it show that i went and shopped at like target. >> no, so that is where the difference is between personal digital footprint and social digital fat print. your social digital footprint is what people can see but, so when you search christopher krauss or tech life coach, i am the first five searches that come up and it's mostly gtu, like a couple other blowing posts and some social media stuff, so my facebook page, my instagram account, my twitter account so that is part of tech life coach's digital footprint. >> right. >> and that is really important. now i don't want to go on to tech life coach and start talking about something completely unrelated because that doesn't apply to the footprint. >> got it. >> but same thing with kids, you have to be careful with your kids and what they post because this that leaves a digital footprint about your child, where they r what they are doing, what they are interested in. >> essentially what you are saying is because a lot of times i have friends who are dating and now the first thing they do is they google them. >> they google the people. >> so when you are googling someone are you just looking up their digital, that saul it really is. >> when you are looking at search results you are looking at the digital footprint of that person. >> and that will, and a digital food print-- footprint is different than a social. >> no, but there is i a social digital foot frint and also a personal digital footprint. >> which if you are trying to get hired and you have a company remember back in 2012 when you said that, that is not going to work for us. >> yep. moral of the story is be aware. be careful of what you are posting on your social media accounts. >> even the comments, the comments and even the like, every like that you do, every post that you like, every picture you like that is part of that footprint. >> interesting, good to know, thank you. >> if you want more information on how you can have it, christopher come and help you with your technique needs there is all the information on your screen. tech life and make sure you follow him on all of his socials as well. you will
