Let’s Play! Million Dollar Footprint
Today you’re all producers for “Trillion Dollar Footprint,” a popular TV show that tours the country looking for teens to compete in a nationwide talent show. You’re looking for a new host for the show. Based on personal statements from several applicants, you have narrowed the candidates to two: Linda and Jason.
The executive producer has hired a private investigator (PI) to dig up whatever he or she can about the candidates online. The PI has created a profile of both of the final candidates with the most important online documents he could find. He has passed along these profiles to you.
You should be very careful how you choose.
Based on these profiles, the executive producer wants you to choose which candidate should host the show. You should be very careful how you choose. Your candidate will be seen by millions of teens, so you should make sure that she or he, in particular: 1) works well with others, and 2) is honest.

Which one is honest? Which one will work well with others?
What Did You Decide? Which one is honest? Which one will work well with others?
What about . . .? The comment under Linda’s InstaPic:
And what did you think of Jason after you found out . . .
He lied about being in a band About his relationship status About where he was born. Hmmm.
Be careful about making assumptions
From online information.
And be careful about what you post.
Based on their online information . . .
Producers of the Trillion Dollar Footprint have decided to not select either Linda or Jason. While this may seem unfair – it is the REALITY of today. Be PROACTIVE about controlling your digital footprint!
So were Linda & Jason solely responsible for the digital footprint?
Can you really tell what a person is like offline from the online information?
BE MINDFUL OF WHAT YOU POST ONLINE!
