Students with positive digital footprints stand out from other applicants in the college admissions process, when applying for internships, and when interviewing for summer jobs. Facebook can be used as an extension of a student's online resume, to connect with thought leaders in their desired industry, and to showcase their extracurricular activities. If students learn how to set up Facebook in a positive way–and why it matters–they’re less likely to use social media in a negative way. In this video, Josh walks students through the exact steps of setting up a positive Facebook profile and how to ensure it gets discovered in their search results.
