Go Global: Use the Power of Media

The power to go global is often thought to be a unique feature of the information age and the process of globalization.  However, this would be inaccurate.  Globalization has been going on for thousands of years.  We now know that Africans traveled to the Americas as far back as 60,000 ce, where relics of their religion and customs (Yoruba) can be found in Mexico.  This means, Globalization isn’t new.  What however, is new, is the ability for the average person to “go global” or even “go viral” these days because of the ease of communication.  Social media goes beyond Facebook and Instagram, now there is WeChat, Wazobialand and or VKontakte.   Look beyond your front door, there’s more to see!  Check out this video!
