How we behave differently in the internet age

BBC World News is exploring the ways in which the internet is transforming the world in a special season of programming called Superpower.

Mishal Husain asked journalist and author James Harkin for his views.

Impact Asia with Mishal Husain is broadcast weekdays at 1300, 1330 and 1400 GMT on the BBC World News channel. Find out more information about regional broadcast times here.
