What is meant by ‘Global Village’?

What Marshall McLuhan meant by the term ‘Global Village’ is that the world is closely linked as a massive community through the use of e-media and broadcasting such as social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), TV, telephone etc. Also, the world is seen as economically, socially and politically interdependent meaning that the countries are dependent on each other for products they cannot produce efficiently for themselves.
