A day to go in Week two of 23 Things so a rather rushed approach.
Thing 3: Digital Footprint, reading includes:
It is important for you to think about how you manage your activity online in the context of your emerging professional identity (or identities) and what you need to do to manage an effective online presence and your digital footprint.
Which sums up the problem fairly nicely.
after the reading the task was to Google yourself. Go to Google.com, type in your name, and see what results come up.
The first thing to note is that I am redirected to google.co.uk
From as owning own my name pov this looks pretty good. The fly in the ointment is the location. The only John Johnston higher than me is a Glasgow photographer.
It turns out it is quite hard to get results from google without using your location (I googled it). So I gave up and turned to Duck Duck go.
