This work describes a system and a user study for hiding and showing parts of the shared surrounding spaces in social AR applications for wearable devices. It extends previous work on the Social AR Continuum by exploring how sharing the surrounding environment can vary based on the social proximity between contacts. We built a prototype system for sharing the surrounding environment between two HoloLens devices. We found that Remove is the preferred hiding mechanism for the sharer in terms of social presence. We discuss the research findings and outline future directions for research in sharing surrounding spaces on social AR applications for wearable devices.
