Human Spacing - Social Space

A social space is a gathering place where people gather and interact. It can be physical or virtual, like social media platforms. In physical social spaces there is usually a 4-12 feet distance between acquaintances. Some examples of social spaces are public places, such as town squares or parks, and others are privately owned and regulated, such as pubs and shopping malls.

Social spaces are used by various communities to conduct different types of social interaction, and it assigns appropriate places to different social relations. They can be used to implement a social cohesion in communities. As a result, the term spans greater than the dichotomy of public and private space.

Social space is perceived and adjusted depending on the situation and the level of friendship and/or understanding between people. A social spacing of 0’-4’ (0-1.22 m) between people would be considered too close. The most comfortable social spacing is typically in the range of 4’-7’ (1.22-2.13 m), while a distance of 7’-12’ (2.13-3.66 m) feels too far for social interactions.

Standing is an upright human posture in which the body is supported only by the feet. Often misunderstood as a static position, standing is actually a form of dynamic balance where the center of the body is supported by rocking on the front of the ankle. Standing requires a high degree of control.
