"Touching" is basically an update in USCIS website regarding your case and usually a "touch" means someone at UCSIS worked on your case, so your case was "touched" and the date changes without actually changing the status of your case. Most touches are insignificant as not all employees at USCIS changes the date on your case especially for K1/K3 petitions. You will more likely see "touches" when you are filing for AOS. For 6 months prior to getting NOA2 for my K1 visa, my case was never updated in USCIS website, so I did not receive a "touch" as the date stayed the same since the issuance of NOA1. Hope this clarifies what a "touch" is now..
