    Smile spread around the world in an instant

    TV, telephones and the internet allow information and ideas to spread around the world in an instant/instantly/immediately/at once.




    Do all of the underlined words convey the same idea? Thanks.

    Yes - though actually there is usually a time lapse. Rapidly might be a better word
