International relations have come into existence ever since Antiquity, when people first organised themselves in city-states. In recent times, when information has become easily transmissible, enabled organisations and businesses to grow and spread and become multinational and some have come to generate revenue that exceeds the GDP of many nations, permitting these organisations to employ extraordinary influence over international politics. The technological revolution and the rise of social media have further linked global audiences in ways that were next to impossible prior. Information is now available a fingertip away, nearly in real-time.
