The aim of this talk is to demystify terms associated with our online presence. In order to meaningfully participate in the current debate around how the Internet intersects and in many ways directs various aspects of our lives, it is critical to understand the digital terminology that has now become commonplace. Informed user understanding of this language can empower the person to take control of the narrative versus being controlled by the same narrative.
