Many learned how to communicate digitally by turning on their electronic devices and sending that first message. But if you’ve ever found yourself on the receiving end of a message that turned out badly, you know that digital communications are far more nuanced than in-person interactions. The answer is to develop an authentic virtual presence that simulates our human interaction while mindful of the audience on the other side of our messages. In A Guide to Virtual Presence, you’ll learn about virtual presence and the skills needed to be a better consumer and creator of digital messages.
