‘Overpresent’ means to actively exist both offline and online

Physics teaches us that it is not possible to be present at two places at the same time. However, some users of social networks seriously challenge that fact. The amount of content they post really makes it seem like they literally post every moment of their life, but at the same time they do manage to have a life as well (at least according to their posts)!

One could argue that for such a user, posting is the core of their life but there is a strong evidence in their posts that they actually do have a stable job, teach yoga, have a child, write a book and travel all over the world.. So they must have spent time learning, practicing, changing diapers, writing and packing, but the question is WHEN?

From the Dictionary of Online Behavior; a project by NNN members TeYosh. Over the next few weeks, we will weekly publish a new word that describes behavior that has emerged on social networks and has changed our way of communication.
