I really enjoyed Lily’s podcast on digital leadership! In it she talks of how to become an important figure in social media. We often hear of our “digital footprint”, our “stamp” on the internet…what people get when they try to look for you in the internet. Usually people think of that as something negative. You know those red cups on your tagged photos on facebook…or that really, really embarrassing tweet you sent on a weekend you can’t even remember.
Lily, instead, talks of how you can become a figure on the internet by how you present yourself. By focusing on a specific area, putting lots of time on the work needed, not giving up…and being an original that can lead others. In that way, the internet is not somewhere where your image is ruined, but where you can actually create a positive image that others can look up to.
