This week, I will be posting posts every single day! And they will all be somehow related to digital footprints! I’m doing this because of the student blogging challenge. Which for those bloggers who haven’t joined yet, do so now!
So, in this post I will be comparing the two videos I have left the videos to at the bottom of this post. If you don’t want me to spoil the videos, I recommend you watch them before you read this. Some similarities between these two videos are that they both teach you the basics of a digital footprint. Which is a “footprint” you leave whenever you do something online. Any comment, tweet, picture, or post you put online are part of your digital footprints.
Now to the differences between the two videos. One difference is that the first video better shows a digital footprint you leave whenever you do something online. While the second, shows how in the course of your life, you leave a digital dossier, which is a record of everything you do online. Another difference is the way the videos are presented. The first is all in letters for the viewer to read and learn from, while the second one has a voice that explains everything. Something else is how it is designed, both used good design, but I liked the design of the first video more because it looked better in general. And also shows C.R.A.P (contrast, repetition, alignment and proximity) better.
But in general, I would prefer the first video to learn the basics of digital footprints because it is easy to understand and teaches all the basics, but it is undeniably freaky. While the second one teaches about something bigger, your digital dossier is not only made up of your actions, but of the people all around you. So I think both are quality videos.
Here are the videos:
