Intercultural Communication

The internet has grown a substantial amount in the past decade and nearly 25% of the entire world population is on some form of online network. Accross multiple countries and cultures, the internet provides insight to areas of the world that we may have never been exposed to before. I personally think that the internet and social networking sites have provided a bridge for people from multiple backgrounds and cultures to connect via online platforms. Without the internet, we subject ourselves to isolation or a form of ethnocentrism where we are only interacting with those around us. This can be somewhat detrimental to our social interactions as well as our perceptions about other foreign cultures and countries. When we are limited in our knowledge and access of other cultures, we often times make incorrect assumptions about them. The use of the internet can provide a link to information about places that we lack knowledge about.
