1 Comment

The e-reputation also called web reputation is the reputation or the majority opinion that the web returns about a natural person or a legal person such as a brand, a company, etc. In a world that has become a global village thanks to the web, e-reputation is a standard that should not be neglected these days. However, it is still a fairly commonplace concept among Internet users and especially among the ranks of young Internet users. Here are four (04) things you absolutely need to know about online reputation.

e-reputation: major source of information

In the digital age, one of the most banal actions that we do when we need information on a company in which we would like to apply or an individual with whom we would like to collaborate is to do a simple search via a search engine or a social network. A simple Curriculum Vitae is no longer enough. As a result, the so-called “private” content of a person on Facebook, for example, can make him miss a job if the latter has the habit of exposing everything that comes to his mind on the internet.

Digital Image> Real Image

Online reputation has a huge impact these days. We easily trust the information we find on the web. Good or bad visibility on the internet is felt on the sales and reliability afforded by the various people involved.

Caution ⛔ Internet has memory

As you can imagine, the internet forgets nothing, nothing. From the least insignificant of your clicks to the most significant, the internet memorizes all your actions and actions thanks to the various servers. Thus, photos, videos, searches, messages, documents, personal or even intimate information; from the most recent to the oldest, all can be perfectly found, even sometimes after deletion of this data by the Internet user. So select carefully what you leave on the internet.

The e-reputation corresponds to the set of characteristics attributed to a person influencing his behavior and his relations on the web and therefore on social networks in particular. It is increasingly used as a privileged source of information to verify, control or even monitor the digital image of individuals, companies, etc. Neglecting its visibility on the internet nowadays is therefore not without risk, because on the web, your privacy is equal to your public life.
