The politics of the public eye

"Public communication of almost any kind involves risk. When you stand up and say something “out loud”, you don’t necessarily (just) start a dialogue or deepen an existing debate. You’re also presenting yourself as a target."

Catherine Smyth's curator insight, April 2, 2013 7:12 PM

Although this resource focuses on academics' online presence, the principles are relevant to wider community. Think about your online presence as: 1)your digital footprint (your active contribution andinteraction with the online world, that is, content that you add to the web,profiles that you set up, and comments you make on blogs and news articles); AND 2) your digital shadow (the content about you that is posted and uploaded by others as well as automatically generated and collated content). The authors of this handbook argue you should try and maximise the former and watch the later,especially as it is difficult to control.

academiPad's curator insight, May 10, 2013 3:36 PM

This is a very comprehensive guide (28 pages), but it is absolutely worth spending some time with!
