How has technology helped to form a global culture?

As technology improves, the world has gained access to advanced communications techniques. Years ago, the only way to get a message across the continent was by horseback, which could take weeks or even months. Now, with anyone in the world just the touch of a button away, we can get so much more information across the world in seconds. This has led to international exchanges in cultural knowledge and practices, which is rapidly unifying the cultures of the world.
