This paper describes an experimental assessment of affective user benefits that may result from peripheral awareness of a remote friend or group of friends during a shared viewing of a televised event. The experiment suggests that awareness supported through a visual display enhances the level of social presence experienced and increases the attraction individuals feel towards the remote partners, a sign that social interactions can benefit from this type of technology.
