Digital Footprint- How will the world remember you?

We add digital information to the world wide web every day; emails, documents, social media updates ( Facebook, Twitter etc.) photographs and the list goes on. The size of the “digital universe??? will swell so rapidly this year that it will pass the “zettabyte” barrier for the first time. However, most information we add to the cyberspace does not have “archival” or “pass-along value” i.e. one would not include that information in one’s legacy/ autobiography.

A full 40.5 percent of tweets can be classified as “pointless babble,” according to a new study from Pear Analytics. 37.55% tweets are “conversational,” 5.85% “self promotion.”, 3.6% “news”, 3.75% “spam” and 8.7% Tweets have “pass-along value”. If we carefully filter the emails and documents we receive everyday, I’m sure there will be a similar distribution i.e. 90%+ emails and documents will not be the the Legacy kinds.

According to allfacebook , as of September of 2010, more than 300 million  have died since the website launched i.e approximately 4.5 % and another 200,000 members die every year.

When we will die we will leave behind nuggets digital information across the digital universe- documents, emails, social, photographs. The question is how do you want the world to remember you? For the 90%+ babble or the 2-5% Legacy? For the wild party you had on your 25th or the good that you do everyday? With services like World Without Footprint you are in control of your digital footprint.
