The cultural, political and technological environment has a lot to do in entrepreneurial success in global markets. The study examined the effect of social media on international entrepreneurship in Nigeria. The general objective of the study is to critically determine the extent to which social media have contributed to the international venturing of entrepreneurs in Nigeria. One hundred questionnaires were administered to collect primary data that treated appropriate research questions and four hypotheses were tested accordingly. The results of this study indicated that technological advancement has significant impact on business transactions of international entrepreneurs which could be traceable to the fact that most small business entrepreneurs are technological inclined to transact businesses.
