The 21st century started with the merging of globalisation and the IT revolution, squeezing the world into well connected global village.
Information Technology(IT) has made the flow of information highly supersonic in today’s world . Personal computer (PC) allowed individuals to create their own contents in digital forms for the first time in the history of the world. Furthermore, the Internet allowed individuals to transmit their contents anywhere in the world virtually for free and that coincided with something called work flow software such as http., html, xml and so on. These three things came together along with the emergence of Google Chrome,Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari and so provided a platform where more people in more places could create more contents and collaborate with each other on their contents for less money with greater ease than ever before..
The concept of space and time in terms of information flow has virtually disappeared in this global village because of the high level of interconnectivity brought about by the Internet boom.Hyperconnected by software such as Facebook,WhatsApp, and Viber, the world now seems to be not too large.
