In my daily life, I participate in numerous activities that connects to globalization. Globalization in a broad sense is the process or processes that increase the movement of people, culture, technology, ideologies and information across the world. In the case of technology everyday activities are becoming faster, closer, and easier than they had ever been. It allows us to have access to virtually anything, communication has never been easier. The technological advances all around the world is a result of globalization. With a click of a button, it has been become significantly easier to exchange information virtually instantly. The quick exchange of information has brought people from all around the world together. The circulation and pulling together of the world is referred by most as globalization. Globalization is believed by many as being the revolution of the future. However, globalization is not just in the future; it is also existent in the present day as well and is growing rapidly. In my life communication plays a big part in how I stay connected with family and friends and also the world. However, while this is a positive result of globalization, it does carry some drawbacks. Sadly, in the undeveloped world, global communication has not reached the majority of people on all continents. The World Health Organization stated, that at least “70 percent of all people in Africa will never make a single phone call or use Internet” (The World Health Organization, 2007).
