Will Liquids Be Allowed on Planes Again in the Future?

I've forgotten when was the last time I was allowed to carry liquids on planes --- of course, I am not talking about those that can be put in a quart-size Ziploc bag. This MSNBC video gives us a hope that we might be able to carry liquids on planes again in the future. However, given the fact that travelers have dramatically changed their travel behaviors due to those “one-after-another” airport regulations and airline add-on fees, will things go back to “normal” if liquids are allowed again?

  1. I don't think that this is such a huge issue. I flew just two weeks ago for the first time in 12 years believe it or not, and I didn't find it to be an inconveinience. I think that as passengers, our first desire is a safe flight, and any increased costs that may incur due to 'high tech' magnetic scanning devices will often cause disgruntlement. Anybody traveling for more than a few days most likely has to check a bag anyway, and liquids are allowed in that case(pardon the pun).
    Perhaps in the time shortly following 9/11, passengers were majorly inconveinienced with this 'no liquid' policy, but I think the procedure should have set in by now. Myself, having not traveled since I was 8 years old, found it to be normal practice. Certainly nothing to complain about when my safety was their airlines priority.

  2. I find it to be an inconvenience. I am traveling for 4 days, and I do not want to check a bag. It would cost me $25 both ways to check my bag. I am able to fit everything I need on my carry on, but am not allowed to pack my shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, etc. Unless I put it into tiny little bottles. Well I need more than a dab of shampoo for my long hair.

Social media engagement is immune to COVID-19 (by Steven Valenzuela)

In the unparalleled world of COVID-19, individuals are flooded with choices: whether it be what to eat or what church service to watch. While there are marketing strategies to get consumers to purchase products to immediately increase sales, it may be a more beneficial to engage with low spending consumers in the short term, so that businesses can keep them for the long term.   Social media game strong   During this time, it is crucial to keep social media posts constant and consistently more than ever before. A recent podcast by eMarketer reports that social media outlets such as Facebook have seen a significant rise in usage.

Do you know where your prospects hang out during the #DeleteFacebook movement?

Facebook used to the cool place where everybody hangs out. Not long ago, Facebook was ranked the most visited website in the world , and the website where Americans spent the most time. Facebook page then became the most popular social media platform for business-to-consumer communications among various types of organizations. In recent years, however, Facebook faced several backlashes toward the platform’s data privacy practices and its CEO. Facebook is experiencing some challenges of maintaining its popularity among internet users, some of whom even call for a #DeleteFacebook movement . I myself, also notice a shift in my teenaged students’ interest in Facebook, even before the #DeleteFacebook backlash.
