The marks we leave in the digital world create and add to our existing digital footprint every time we connect, post or share information via social media or other online platforms. In many instances, these acts may seem meaningless, with no immediate consequences or risks. However, online exposure should not be taken for granted, especially now, when most daily tasks require even more digital interactions.
