Presence

Digital presence or tele-presence, presence from a distance, can be defined as the relational experience of feeling another person, the speaker, as being present (psychologically present) when they are absent (physically absent). This experience – which manifests as individual and collective feelings in digital practices, as well as in the common language that structures and socializes the practices themselves – has resulted in technological components and behavioral aptitudes affecting mediation devices, used for presentation and communication, which our society is currently utilizing until the introduction of as yet inconceivable forms of presence.
