Digital Assets – Day 2 – Know Thy Stuff
If you are new to this series please start with Day 1. If you are returning, welcome back! So you have pulled together a list of your digital assets, applications and systems…now what to do with the list. First, let’s do some cleanup.
Can you get rid of anything? Are there any platforms, software, systems, or entire offices that are simply not used or needed anymore? Can you get rid of them? Perhaps you switched your web host away from GoDaddy but still have your old account active…consider deleting it. Any old social media accounts for your person, or your business you don’t need anymore? Deactivate or delete them (Check out this article about How to Permanently delete your Facebook Account).
Each site should have documentation for account deletion. If they do not, send an email to their support requesting to be deleted and most should comply. This is required in most parts of the world outside of the US.
