To Marketing and other hives 15/01/2016

A new social networking site is breaking in to the United States market. It’s name is bebee.com. It’s a well constructed site and easy to use. It competes directly with social sites like Xing and the space where LinkedIn dominates. The question: Does it offer something that Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the many other social networks don’t?

Years ago a start-up social media platform called blellow.com was launch for creatives. It was like Twitter with some tweaks and one of the first social sites to focus on a niche (outside of traditional forums). Blellow never caught on at a high level. Eventually, the founder could not or did not want to keep up with development and the site was disbanded. Since, other players have taken over in the marketing and creative space, such as shocase.com. I liked blellow because of the focus on creative professionals and collaboration. Something, others at the time, didn’t do well.

Bebee reminds me of the blellow effort because it allows you to easily customize your experience with members in similar fields. You, of course, can do the same on other platforms, however, I like bebees approach...... continue..

    Ä H .... I am so used to hitting ENTER changing row that I am a serial box commentor here - sorry about that - my ENTER-hit reflex is too quick / but what I was about to test here is: is Ross Sillars -- no, he is not a member in this group. So how and who could put his photo and text there ? It looks like a blog post ? Is it a normal News-post or what is it ? Can we write that much on one News-post ? Why is there a X on the top right ? I dare not touch it - is it somekind of a deleate -feature ???

    Thanks @Rosh Sillars ! beBee main goal is connecting to like-minded people. Just an example: Linkedin have about 7 MM users in Spain ( after 12 years ), and bebee have more than 4 MM ( after 12 months ). Dont you think that is promising ? :)
