Digital Identity - Social Networks and Google

What do others see about you on social networks?
To be sure that you are viewing your public profile, log out of your social networks before (Facebook, for example), or go to a new browser, and you will see exactly the same as a stranger will in them.

Now, logged in your Google account, write "¿Qué sabe Google sobre mí?

Go to the link highlighted and check the results from the 6 links you are provided. Surprised?

What is an Avatar?
In computing, an avatar is the graphical representation of the user or the user's alter ego or character. It may take either a three-dimensional form, as in games or virtual worlds, or a two-dimensional form as an icon in Internet forums and other online communities.

Your avatar is the small picture that appears along with your user-name when you participate in activity on the site. The avatar is also seen above your user-name on your profile page. Many people use a flattering picture of themselves as their avatar, but you can use any picture you want as long as it isn’t offensive. An avatar gives other users a “face” to go with your user-name. They will recognize your avatar when you participate in activity on the site like commenting on articles, posting in the forum, and making new friends.

Some ideas to create your own avatar:

Some usuful tools you may need:
  • Recortes. If you have no option to download your avar, take a screenshot. "Recortes" es a tool you will find only in Windows. Choose a rectagular shape, select your avatar and save it.
  • My Pictr: This is not to create and avatar, but it could be very useful if you want to chage the size of your avatar.
  • A different way of taking a screenshot: CAPTURA DE PANTALLA
