Storyboard Text

  • Yeah...I'm sure. Besides only my online friends can see my posts.
  • okay!
  • Hey Brianna, did you see I just posted a bunch of pics of my boyfriend and I from that wild party last night!
  • Are you sure you should've posted that? 
  • We better get going.. tomorrow is our first college fair!
  • Katelyn, I just saw the pictures you posted on your Instagram from that crazy party you went to! Do you know that according Kaplan Test Prep, out of 400 colleges surveyed, 40% of them looked at their applicants social media accts?
  • Oh no Mom, I didn't know that! Can you help me delete the pictures??
  • I'ts okay mom you tried.
  • I'm sorry honey, your name was already tagged and although we deleted the pics on your account, once you post something online, you have left a digital footprint or trail of data that will always exist on the internet.  
  • Well, yes young lady...33% of all colleges research your digital footprint.
  • So you are saying that my extra curricular activities are looked at as well as any of my online profiles?
  • We expect A's & B's from our students....
  • Brianna, they said that colleges look at your online profiles, posts, tweets and other trails of data you leave behind whenever you go on the internet! I hope I can still get into the college I want. I thought my good grades and after school activities were going to be enough!
  • Daniela's Donuts
  • So Katelyn, how do you think the College Fair went?
  • The 3  things I learned are: 1. Everything on the Internet can be seen even if you have deleted it. 2. Think before you post! 3. You leave a trail data behind  you when ever you go on the Internet therefore you create a digital footprint.
