Digital Identity

Relevancy The usefulness of the information that exists about you and how consistent that information is with you you say you are and what you claim to value

Purity The amount of information that comes up in an Internet search that is about you and not someone with a similar name or similar interests

Diversity The mixture of information found when you are searched online: • • • Do you have a website? Are you found in real time content? Are there images and video of you?
