1.	Changes in Social Practices due to Global Connectedness

According to Ritzer (2010), social practices can be defined as the routine activities that a group of people or a particular community continually engages in and which forms the framework on which they co-exist with one another. Social practices include a people`s way of dressing, their customs and beliefs; the food they eat among many other similar factors.
Global connectedness through information technology has opened up the world and enabled people of different cultures to interact and have a basic understanding of the social practices which they engage in within their respective domains
2.	Influence of Global Connectedness on the consequences of a global market According to Steger (2013), 
 Steger (2013) adds that global connectedness is in part is driven by the existence of cross- border trade and investment among different countries located on the same continent or in different geographic jurisdictions. In this regard, global connectedness has resulted in the emergence of numerous benefits that are associated with the global trade market. Key among these consequences is the increased demand for the goods and services that are produced by the different countries which in turn has led to the expansion of the industries manufacturing the goods; resulting in employment, GDP increases and overall economic development over time (Steger, 2013).

3.	How Global Society has influenced social change

According to Abbas (2012), various aspects of particular societies across the globe have been influenced positively and in some instances negatively as a result of the emergence of a global society that has thrived under the framework of global connectedness. Social change in particular has arisen in the field of politics where the principle of democracy has gradually spread across many geographic jurisdictions of the world that previously ascribed to governing policies such as dictatorship (Abbas, 2012).
The 2011 Jasmine Revolution that began in Tunisia and spread across the Arab World is a direct consequence of the influence which the global society had on the political systems in these countries that ultimately resulted in their citizens demanding better standards of leadership in line with those found in other countries (Abbas, 2012).
