In the recent past, the global world has undergone many changes in terms of political, social, economic, and cultural paradigms. Similarly, the nature of war has also been altered with the advent of globalization. Among the new techniques, social media platforms and fifth-generation warfare are recent examples. With these concepts, fifth-generation warfare is the war that is being fought in today's generation without any use of military action or without using any forceful or violent technique, as it is the war of information and perception. A qualitative method of document analysis is used in this research to fulfill the research objectives. The research material finds that Fifth Generation War (5GW) has made a massive impact on every sector, including social, political, and economical, and social media has been playing a pivotal role in the promotion and propagation of this 5GW in the era of  globalization.
