YouTube can have a positive impact on your digital footprint. Consider creating a YouTube channel under your real name (only if you are 13+ years old and you get approval from your parents). Since Google owns YouTube, creating videos can dramatically affect your search results. When colleges or employers search for students online, Google will usually display a YouTube link on the first page of results. It’s better if colleges find your real YouTube account, rather than an account that belongs to someone else with a similar name.
