Marshall McLuhan long envisioned a time where everyone or majority of the world's population will be able to interact and communicate with each other, have a free exchange of ideas, and be culturally connected. He called it the "global Village" The 21st century has brought about many technological advancements. These include computers andthe world wide web. As such, cyber communities also came. As a result, a lot of people claim that we already have the global village at present. Is this true?

Yeah. Just look at this. We, all living on different portions of this world and all using this website, sharing our views, knowing each other, exchanging ideas. If its not a global village then what it is. In today's age one sitting in the western-most side of the world can easily talk and even see a person living on the extreme opposite. Not only this but the entire political life of nations and issues regarding future of nations are linked with one another. All the fields of technology, telecommunication and science is utilized to make this world a global village.
