With the introduction of the internet and the internet and Facebook-like social media, people in these countries got more aware of the depth of the problems they were facing. In many of the Middle Eastern countries, currently, public agitation is going on against their administrations.

Facebook helped people of different cultures to know more each other. Cross-cultural communication enhanced a lot as a result of Facebook like social networks.
