Mobilities may be further viewed as a production process rather than as a consumption processes, and in an indirect way. Cresswell (2001a), following Massey (1993), argued for this view by paraphrasing Lefebvre’s (1991) famous statement that space is a social product: “(social) mobility is a (social) product” (p. 13). Though Cresswell’s (2001a) analysis referred mainly to migrations, Massey’s (1993) related to mobilities at large. Differentiated levels of mobility of various sectors or social actors represent “power in relation to the flows and the movement” (p.

A major and rather frequent example in this regard is the blurring of boundaries between home and work, notably when ‘meeting’ work-related colleagues over the Internet while being located at a traditionally non-work place, home. At the sphere of social relationships, Licoppe (2004) recognized an emerging pattern of continuous ‘connected relationships’ through various media of electronic communications, so that “the boundaries between absence and presence eventually get blurred” (p. 136). A fourth source of attraction in the contemporary Web-based society is information, as a stand-alone source of attraction, in addition to its attraction vis-àvis attracting people, places, and events.

Urry (2002) extended Boden and Molotch’s notion of compulsion for proximity, from their main focus on business interaction as implied in their work, to personal social interaction, mainly through air travel (mostly international one, as implied in his writing). Thus, “virtual and imaginative travel will not simply substitute for corporeal travel since intermittent co-presence appears obligatory for sustaining much social life” (p. 258). This same logic would also seem to fit local and domestic social ties, maintained through terrestrial travel in order to achieve faceto-face interaction.
