No Facebook, I don’t want to look back on my memories

Does anyone else look at their past posts on Facebook and just cringe?

There is the occasional memory that makes me feel warm inside but most of the time, I just want to close out of Facebook.

That being said, I don’t think I have posted anything that would affect my credibility as a teacher. Besides the occasional teen angst posts, I never posted anything inappropriate.

As I grow older, the fewer posts I make. I uploaded 3 posts on Instagram and maybe fewer on Facebook in the past year.

However, I have learned that this may be a bad thing. Not having a big presence online might seems “weird” in this age of technology and social media.

I feel that my digital identity is not bad, it is not good either. I will make an effort to make my digital identity more teacher friendly and have more of a presence. Hopefully, this blog and my Twitter will make that happen.

  1. I like how you state that not having a digital identity can be a bad thing, because I never thought of that it could be. But in the times we live in now, it would make sense that it would be. I hardly post on Facebook, and I struggle with twitter as it is. Its nice to know that I’m not the only one who is struggling a little bit.

  2. The torture of Facebook memories. Some are nice, some not so nice. I think there is a lot of us that are in the same boat as you. Our digital identities may not be one-hundred percent teacher orientated, but it is slowly making progress. I wish you all of the luck with your presence of your digital identity.
