A digital environment is a simulated "place" made through the use of one or more computers. Records or evidence of an individual's interaction with a digital environment constitute their digital footprint.

Digital communication environments[edit]

Digital communication environments (DCE) are well-known as computer networks. Many digital communication environments contain a central hub which everything is connected to in some form. This hub can be located inside a networking system, or could be referred to as the internet itself.

The digital world includes the sensors that automatically picks up information.

Digital social environment[edit]

Digital social environments (DSE) are well known as social networking sites. Many digital social environments need one central server to distribute information to each of its clients.

Other[edit]

Many environments we face can be reproduced in a digital environment, such as an immersive digital environment in which an artificial, interactive, computer-created scene or "world" is created for the user to be placed in. We see most immersive digital environments in theme parks.
