Abstract
No single phenomenon has ever dominated the integration of human societies as technology-driven communication. Understanding the initiatives in adventures and expeditions, the demonstrations in seizure and expansion of territories, the translocation of resources and transmission of values are pointers to understanding communication. Communication seems to assume an explanatory role in energizing the coming together of world societies. More so, it aids in the acceleration of the interdependence of institutions, organs, processes and values. The central objective of this paper is to establish a symbiotic linkage and explain the nexus between communication and globalization. To attain this goal, communication is used as a framework for analyzing global interdependence. In its conclusion, the study postulates that communication is the vehicle through which technology is transmitted, while technology is the oiling of communication which is the nerve of globalization.
