- Producer26/10/2016Contamination of EmotionsMy previous buzz on Unexpected Passion Migrations and subsequent lovely buzz by Sara Jacobovici on Bee Passionate drew great discussions. A comment by Fatima Williams led to the formation of what I suggested as the WPD Factor (Wonderment, Passion...
Comments27/10/2016 #9 Deb HelfrichOne word comes to mind as the source of the defeat of the WPD factor. Resistance. We resist because of anxiety, doubt, fear, or just plain overwhelm. And isn't it funny that is what our immune systems do, develop resistance on our behalf to all the microscopic invaders who aren't compatible with our biochemistry.
Fascinating correlation you've uncovered, dear Consortium.
And as I was documenting elsewhere, my background is in HR systems....27/10/2016 #7 Ali Anani#6 First, without the great feedback from you dears @Fatima Williams and @Sara Jacobovici we wouldn't be standing where we are now. I am so happy with your comment and I find it energizing dear Fatima. I look forward to establishing the Consortium Hive tomorrow and to find ways to translate Sara's suggestion and your beautiful ideas into something tangible. You have been a great assist dear Fatima and I hope you shall continue playing this role.27/10/2016 #6 Fatima WilliamsWow Wow and Wow @Ali Anani We contaminate our emotions with trying to please others rather than pleasing our inner drive and doing what affectionate us. This is so true we do this in our jobs , in our daily lives , to please our partners our friends and so on. Why can''t we build this immune system like @Sara Jacobovici suggested. Why are we scared to let go for the sake of ourselves. Why don't we think whats best for us.
This leads me back to your closing statement self-determination. Yes we need that to be our self-defence. To be our savior when all else is leading us in the wrong direction. Our self-determination is the key to our success of the WPD factor. Yet another outstanding buzz from my dear @Ali Anani.
You are the dispersion of light that forms my rainbow , a multi-coloured self determined one and I Thank you for that.27/10/2016 #5 Ali Anani#4 Will establish the hive tomorrow and the triad of yourself, @Fatima Williams and myself are on a new track. I shall do my best to make this hive a different story with you outstanding support. I need to start with a clean mind. @Sara Jacobovici- you have been a mindmate along the way.26/10/2016 #4 Sara Jacobovici#3 Very exciting @Ali Anani! I would be proud to be part of your Consortium Hive. It is your vision of the new approach to the human resources management that needs to go ahead. Yes, much has happened in the last three days with your efforts, energy and capabilities.26/10/2016 #3 Ali Anani#1 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- sheer brilliance your comment is. I think of your suggestion "This leads me to think of building up the "immune system" of a positive formula so as to be able to fight off the negativity". What a breakthrough idea. Do it Sara for you shall serve the humanity. I love your comment, but you got me so aroused with this suggestion that I just want to urge you to go ahead with it. beBee shall be remembered for this. I would even consider establishing a Consortium Hive to assist with this great idea. Just look back three days ago and there was no WPD Factor and where we are today. I see a new approach to the human resources management emerging.26/10/2016 #1 Sara JacoboviciAlways am so grateful to be mentioned in one of your works @Ali Anani, thank you. I very much appreciate your whole concept of protecting a positive formula for change from the negative impact of contamination caused by the negative emotions. At the same time you point out how the positive formula can actually act as a catalyst of change on what is often perceived as a negative event like failure. In this case you show how successful people "know what they want, they accept failure as a learning experience to build on it and continue their drive." This leads me to think of building up the "immune system" of a positive formula so as to be able to fight off the negativity. From a preventative perspective, we can be alert and aware of "ingesting" and/or absorbing only the cleanest of messages from others and our environment. If anything does get through we can approach it from a detoxification perspective; "ingesting" and/or absorbing emotions and meanings that can cleanse the contaminants. Your closing statement Dr. Ali provides us with the strongest defense of all; ensuring that "self-determination forms a high enough barrier".

Comments27/10/2016 #27 Pamela L. WilliamsAh, @Sara Jacobovici and @Ali Anani, Again rises the question of passion. What is my passion from where does it come from. Every since I wrote that piece I still occasionally contemplate the question. I think you're correct in your thought that it is a hybrid emotion. I can't associate my passion to an emotion, but instead emotions seem to arise from the passion. A perfect example: today at work I was facing a tedious task that was going to take hours/days but then that 'exploring' part of me kicked in and I went on a search for a 'quick fix' you might say (at least less tedious). Before I knew it that internal motivation, that passion that drives me to discover arose. I was on a personal quest and when I'm there, in my mind world, I feel elated. Then I found the fix and I turned hours/days of tedious work into minutes. I felt like I was Columbus and I had just discovered the New World. It didn't matter that the 'fix' already existed in the software I was using, I discovered it for myself, I learned today, my mind expanded just a little. Whoopee!25/10/2016 #13 Fatima Williams@Sara Jacobovici You have so beautifully spoken the universal truth everyone needs to identify with. Wonderment + passion+ drive is all one needs when we see our rainbows fading. We are the rainbow in this formula not only to inspire the world but ourselves.
Because only when we are inspired , We can inspire the people around us..
"I am my rainbow I shine
With my beautiful colors
My colors are a reflection
Of beauty I wish to see around me
When my rainbow is fading
I kindle my passion
And then again
I am my rainbow I shine"25/10/2016 #12 John Rylance"People with passion can change the world"
Like Javier I would change it slightly to read " can try to change the world"
In my opinion Hitler was passionate and failed to make the changes he wanted, whereas Mahatma Gandhi was equally passionate and did make the changes he wanted.

I started reading with a smile and all the characters fell into place and I was still wondering why Running deer hated Nicanol after reading the birth part of the episode. Towards the end I was thinking OMG what is this stubborn child going to do and as I wanted my guesses to be wrong . They were not only right but also claimed two lives instead of what I thought as one.
The loss of a loved one can create such negative feelings and behavior especially when the death is not natural and man-made. I now see why she is treated this way and wonder if Running deer will ever understand that Nicanol has realized the consequences of her action.
Brilliant fantabulous story writing. This one will definitely never cease from my memory.
#Youareawesome #Lovedit #PamelaRocks :)25/10/2016 #30 Deb Helfrich#25 That's what we get in real life. The current imperfect amalgamation of many, many past actions and thoughts. Almost all of which will stay hidden...
But, of course, the question is - even when meanness is justified in some sense by a prior interaction - is it acceptable?
I have held grudges for things unable to be uttered in the same sentence as losing a child. And it is inevitable that there will be individuals who we struggle to get along with - but the poisoning of the clan/community that is an entirely different level of grudge and perhaps one to really be alert for. One person rarely has much of a chance against systemic injustice.25/10/2016 #29 María Teresa Redondo Infantes25/10/2016 #27 María Teresa Redondo Infanteshttp://www.smule.com/recording/barry-white-let-the-music-play-barry-white/339944951_200449971 View morehttp://www.smule.com/recording/barry-white-let-the-music-play-barry-white/339944951_200449971

Do you see now why that makes sense? To me it had to be written that way, you had to think about the characters and their actions until this episode and everything fell into place. To me it imbued the story with raw emotion.25/10/2016 #23 Pamela L. Williams#5 I actually tire myself out once I start writing, I can't stop. I sat in a coffee shop Saturday, working on the story and before I knew it four hours had passed. They kicked me out because they wanted to close so I went to one of my favorite diners, had a Western Omelet and worked for another hour. I think I got a bit obsessed. You think?25/10/2016 #21 Pamela L. Williams#8 thank you my friend! It was really hard to write. I got attached to my characters. I want to eventually do a Prequel and tell the full story of Friend of the Wolf and Morning Dove. Something is telling me that needs to come first. When I finish the final chapter you'll see that. Yes, it's already in my head. Wish I could write it as fast as the story comes to me. I could write a novel in a weekend. :-)25/10/2016 #20 María Teresa Redondo Infantes#17 The secret of human existence is not only live, but also know what you live

Thanks for choosing orange @Javier beBee makes me enthusiastically feeling home!23/10/2016 #27 Michele Williams@Javier beBee, you're welcome. Thanks for pointing out the benefit of beBee for smaller organizations and startup teams. Interestingly, seeing the fun and connections that your team is generating with their video buzzes, for example, not only connects them to each other and teaches us how to do a great buzz, but also communicates beBee's values, connecting bees to your brand. The benefit for companies can be two-fold (employees and customers/users).23/10/2016 #26 Javier beBee#25 @Michele Williams exactly ! For large organizations, these connections among employees could improve the relationships between team members and among people who facilitate internal transfers. But not only for large ones. We - as a team - are gettting to know each other much better thanks to beBee. We enjoy our common passions and establish deeper relationahips. Excellent comment ! Thanks23/10/2016 #25 Michele WilliamsNicely put @Javier beBee:
"What is beBee?
beBee is the next big thing in professional social networking. Our mission is to create a professional world that is more open and connected.
beBee is disrupting professional social networking by establishing connections through passions and common interests that create more professional engagement and deeper and more successful business relationships."
The relevance of beBee for an individual's professional networks and clients relationships is clear. For large organizations, these connections among employees could improve the relationships between team members and among people who facilitate internal transfers. Here is research by my colleague Wayne Baker on the importance of relational energy for job engagement and performance.
Owens, B. P., Baker, W. E., Sumpter, D. M., & Cameron, K. S. (2015). Relational energy at work: Implications for job engagement and job performance. Journal of Applied Psychology
http://positiveorgs.bus.umich.edu/wp-content/uploads/Relational-energy-at-work-Implications-for-job-engagement-and-job-performance.pdf23/10/2016 #18 CityVP Manjit#9 Dear @Gerald Hecht this will make it clear https://twitter.com/SocietyManjit/lists/spectraneuron-e2-1 . I prefer the LIST based function of Twitter, and the key to my curation is limiting each list to just 24 thinkers.
It has been such a long-time since I curated these lists, and the link above is a list I have named "The Mediators" by restricting each list to 24 and to only 7 lists per Twitter account, when one of the 24 chosen people no longer interest me, they are deleted and a new account replaces them.
Now if I curate my Twitter lists well, then as I browse the river of content, I am bound to come across content that is going to capture my attention and imagination. Now if I curate that list well, now I have a flow that links with my hive here.
So Gerry, now you see how I use the LIST function in Twitter, the next part is how those Twitter accounts can now flow into my corresponding hives at beBee. For that you must see this buzz https://www.bebee.com/producer/@cityvp/bridging-twitter-with-my-bebee-learning-journey
Finally, the question you have to ask is who have I set up these twitter and hive accounts for. For following? I gave up the pied piper mentality decades ago - now I set up these lists and hives for my learning journey. Now, how would you set up yours?
BTW it is coincidental that I chose Orange for following social media accounts. As Carl Jung says that is "synchronicity".22/10/2016 #14 Mohammed SultanJavier beBee.Your projection of the ORANGE color was supported by most popular projective techniques among psychologists.Their findings in terms of gender associated orange as a simulating color.It shows power ,energy ,self -importance ..etc.This energetic symbol (orange)was selected,according to their research, by most men and also by those women who are young ,who work,who enjoy life and who consider themselves critical,but hardly warmhearted ,content ,disinterested or patient whose loyalty is difficult to develop.So,it seems that one chooses a color that corresponds to one's own temperament.

Comments22/10/2016 #63 Pamela L. Williams#61 Jared, I have thought about this subject myself since reading this post. I have worked with Finance departments in many companies. Most of the time it was budget related but after developing a metrics program for one department I started receiving requests from the Finance area to help them use the application I was building to help them track the financial side of the department (transportation, supply chain). It is a complex system I have to admit. There were so many intricate pieces to the puzzle that had to be considered. As a former Accountant at a military food service operation I can attest to how easily things can go awry if you don't watch the details. It is a difficult business and one I have not wanted to re-enter.21/10/2016 #60 Pamela L. Williams#35 @Anders Liu-Lindberg I have the same issue with the Environmental Industry and it's not just beBee but all social media. When I try to get them to engage they just don't seem to want to blog about environmental issues. I understand that, especially if they are writing for an Environmental company or a Non-profit. Many do not take well to their staff blogging about the job.20/10/2016 #55 Lisa Gallagher#54 Sharing helps to gain interaction for sure! I try to share as many articles that I feel others may find relevant even if it's not something that pertains to me. I don't share random stuff, it has to be worthy of reading. For eg, I'm not a techie but if I read a good Tech article I will share it.
Engaging is how others get to know you obviously. That's how I've met so many new people on beBee, by engaging on their buzzes.
I find so many people on here who love promoting others, myself included. I want to see beBee kick butt ;-)19/10/2016 #54 Jared Wiese#53 Thank you for the thoughtful comments, @Lisa Gallagher! I appreciate you taking the time.
I know there are naysayers out there. That's fine. If it doesn't work for them, they can give up and go elsewhere or try something different. Like posting at different times, as you said.
One of the other points you mention that I didn't discuss was sharing. I believe each time someone else shares, your content shows up for that new audience in addition to all of your current hives and followers. That could really help a post take off.
And, certainly, it takes effort to engage - not just by posting something and sitting back. As you said, you have to show interest and interact. That gains followers, they see more of your content, then like, then comment, then share.... that's the theory anyway ;)19/10/2016 #53 Lisa Gallagher#38 @Jared Wiese, I think you made many valid points below. I'm not an expert by any means but from what I've seen of others and even some of my own posts, my viewer rate is much higher and you must at least click on an article to read it. Most of my articles have gotten many more comments and/or likes than on Linkedin. I have a few that didn't do so well but again, they may have been topics that didn't interest many, I could have posted to the wrong hives and I just learned not long ago you can repost your own article to your followers as often as you'd like. Another thing, I've learned it really depends on what time of day someone posts. There was a poster that was put up some time ago that gave you the best times of day to post to beBee, LI, FB etc... I tend to post after midnight which is far from the best time. John's buzz today is a prime example of how many comments a person can receive in less than 24 hours. I also think it depends how often a person comments on others posts, you have to show your interested and get to know others by interacting on their buzzes and last: How many followers. People that are moving here from Linkedin need to remember how long it took them to build their user base (connections) on LI. It took me almost 2 yrs to build almost 800 connections on LI, I'm up over 600 on beBee in just 7 mos. So, beBee wins in my eyes, hands down.19/10/2016 #51 Phil Friedman#48 Anders, I realize you are being sardonic but for the record I did not say that it would "take off". Indeed, I have not made any representation one way or the other, nor taken a position (yet) on engagement on beBee vs LinkedIn.
I have been working on a rather long and detailed post on the subject for Samantha Bailey's "LI Group Owners, Managers and Moderators (OMMs) [LIGOMM]" group on LinkedIn. As you know Samantha Bailey is highly respected onLinkedInasatop ratedata analyst. And her group is comprised of some serious veterans of the social media wars in general, and of the Groups war on LinkedIn. So the eventual exchange should be interesting.
Some data collection is involved, some logical and philosophical analysis. Plus the building of a basic bibliography of relevant posts by others on the topic, and opinions from some established analytic experts. As you might expect, it is taking longer to produce than one of my standard slash and burn pieces.
Anyway, we just recently founded "All Business" whose membership has not exactly grown through the roof at this point.Which I suppose might tell you something in and by itself. And I just wanted to warn you not to expect magic. Cheers!19/10/2016 #45 Phil Friedman#35 Actually, Anders, the title "All Business" means the hive is all business and accepts only native posts about business from real world business people, posted by the original author who is expected to be available to engage with readers about the post. How do I know this? Because I own the hive. And we welcome only posts there that are all business about business. You, my friend, would be welcome. Cheers!

And leave it up even though I'm embarrassed. Sometimes you just have to say fuck it. It's YOUR experience. YOU are writing about it. This is writing for social media.

That's the same for me when I write about Vegas, the life I lived there. There were thousands of people who were negotiating the very same circumstances that I was navigating.

This is an organization being built and flourishing via putting culture first, not the old way where tasks mattered more. The other thing that strikes me when you look at it through the HR lens, is that there isn't one job description that fits the whole ambassador team. There are a few common tasks, but otherwise there are writers and techies and project managers and PR folks and customer service managers and connectors and mavens and salespeople.

Comments26/10/2016 #74 José Ramón López#73 Gracias @Javier beBee por tu respuesta. Sí, me refiero a implementar una manera de etiquetar una publicación o buzz. Un hashtag sería genial. Por cierto, eres increíble. No sé cómo puedes estar omnipresente con todas las responsabilidades que tienes. Impresionante. Gracias.26/09/2016 #68 Deb Helfrich#66 The simple brilliance of why beBee will ultimately succeed is that the concept is about putting people first - giving everyone a chance to interact how, where, and when they please - while challenging the status quo of social media being all about shouting into a vacuum. I received a warm and encouraging welcome and I want to extend that to as many people as possible. To me, making sure that welcoming atmosphere continues to occur is the best possible use of any differentiator. If you are spending time using beBee, then having an automated indicator that you do spend time here is the best way for newbees to spot someone who is in a position to give directions and make introductions. It is an excellent way to keep the community flavor during explosive growth.26/09/2016 #67 Anonymous#61 @Charles David Upchurch & @Deb Helfrich great points...

(and Im going to make some honey about this too..hee hee)
I think it would be really cool if like facebook, we could have something like bzzzzzzness pages, not only for ourselves (because I see that we do) but for clients we do #smm for as well. Right now, I have to log out of my beBee, FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc...and RE-log in as my client into all those same platforms I just logged out of to use beBee and post and share to their other platforms. beBee has the most absolute awesome tool that we can post something here and/or write honey and then SHARE to multiple platforms with out having to leave beBee. WOOOoooo! YES! THAT rocks! But it would be so much easier time-wise (at least for me) If I could switch on the fly between my account and my clients w/out having to close out and relogg in. Right now I have one computer for me and two other computers setup with login as my clients. (Ok..I believe in total transparency, not conspiracy--my friends--Im doing free SMM for Starbucks cards to test this as a selling point for my freelance biz..which I am available by the way! lol) Right now that is the only suggestion I have as beBee ROCKS the HIVE bay-beeeeeeeee!23/09/2016 #64 Pamela L. Williams#58 #59 #61. The best option is to direct them to the Cheat Sheet hive and the Guide on the beBee blog. There are many posts on using beBee I'll be doing a rewrite on my newbee post and make it more 'textbook' for navigating beBee. I think my long post Honey was pretty detailed so please feel free to share that.23/09/2016 #63 Robert Bacal#61 Automating based on honey, comments, numbers shared, etc, is all easy to automate, so in that respect I don't see any advantage to one approach or another. I think Javier addressed that. I guess I'm not a gamification kind of guy...I just can't imagine anyone I know caring about such things, but that doesn't mean it's uncommon. Just not common among the folks I know, @Charles David Upchurch22/09/2016 #62 Javier beBee#61 @Charles David Upchurch we will mark the most active bees in the platform. This is very easy. This will be automatic so no body will be able to ask for this mark. You simply have to be very active. This mark will appear and disappear depending on your current activity. CC @Noël De Castro García @Alberto Anaya Arcas thanks22/09/2016 #61 Charles David UpchurchNice idea, @Robert Bacal, but I can see some definite challenges with both the reason for doing it and the implementation of it.
1) beBee wants a user-friendly "ranking" for the sake of gamification. Encouraging FRIENDLY COMPETITION has proven to be an effective way of keeping social media platform users engaged, over time. Some of us would be active without any such ranking or competition. Some people need the game aspect of it as a reason to participate.
2) In terms of implementation, @Javier beBee has indicated that he wants the process to be automated. How would they automate the choice of "what kind of bee" we are, for those of us who do all of the above? And, to @Deb Helfrich's point, is a producer inherently more valuable than a reader/researcher, buzzer, or commenter...or is that simply an indicator that that person has experience with doing that particular activity (producing, reading/researching, buzzing/sharing, commenting) so that person can be a resource for others who are doing the same thing?

Comments14/09/2016 #10 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#8 Either way will work now, Lisa. The system adds a # when it writes the tweet. I set it to delete any #, commas, or extra spaces when the tweet is scheduled.
If you accidently schedule in the past, they will be deleted every time you access your dashboard. To be specific, any untweeted tweet scheduled for before today (whenever "today" is) gets deleted.
No need to even think about it.
The bigger issue is in skipping hashtags or going long on a tweet.
There are some Twitter changes expected Sept 29. What we do here will still work fine.
You will likely have more room. We'll adjust limits as needed.14/09/2016 #8 Lisa GallagherI wonder if I went over 140 characters and scheduled tweets for in the past... I could see me having done that? I'm going to keep this open for the next tweet I schedule. I hope I get it right. It's that math thing LOL. I don't use the # sign at all? And do I put comma's between my words for hashtags? Thanks for this @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian14/09/2016 #7 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#6 Yes, Donna-Luisa, promotion on Twitter is much like radio advertising. You can't just run one spot. You need to run many. Twitter has a built-in tweet scheduler, but you need to enter each instance one at a time. That takes far too much time.
The time-wasting is worse for those who manage multiple accounts. It's much worse
Most Twitter applications focus on growth-hacking. I am of the opinion that most do it wrong. V2.0 will do it right. For now, we are sticking to scheduling tweets for maximum promotional impact.
Soon, we will move to supporting each other with ReTweets based on subject matter (tribes) and connection (clans).
The growth hacking component will also be based on tribes13/09/2016 #5 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#4 Yes, they've been talking about it for about 3 months now. No one really knows exactly how they'll implement what or on what schedule. We'll cross that bridge when we get to it. That's one of the reasons we did what we did and how. We have more flexibility in implementing the new stuff if and when it shows up.
Remember how Twitter said they were going to bump up to 10,000 characters? I'm still waiting13/09/2016 #4 David B. GrinbergKudos Paul for all of your admirable and impressive efforts in perfecting this app though the beta stage. I'm sure you've heard by now that Twitter is reportedly making changes to lengthen the character count of tweets by not counting images and other things in the character count. I shared an article about this earlier today from The Verge. Again, your persistence and perseverance with this project are praiseworthy. Good luck, my friend!

As this is about affinity and, I have just read my comment again, I just wanted to say something. This post is great and it is something I will refer to and, re-refer to time and time again. There is , for me anyway, learning here and I wanted to say thank you for sharing!21/08/2016 #4 CityVP ManjitI think that poetry is so diverse that one particular view of what poetry is becomes a tiny slice in that tremendous diversity. Poetry is not one question but any question that evokes or stirs something within, but it can be one question if we want to understand some facet of it - knowing full well that actual poetry is like art, a highly interpretative medium.
In one way poetry as an interpretative medium is best a personal experience between the reader and the poem, but I also found an interesting view some weeks ago when I discovered the work of Susan Sontag
One of the quotes of hers that challenged my perspective is this one:
There is an even more dynamic account of Sontag's perspective at Brainpickings https://www.brainpickings.org/2015/01/16/susan-sontag-against-interpretation-content/
There are also people who have pitched in about poetry such as Wendel Berry on how to be a poet : https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poems/detail/41087
Then there are people who give advice about poetry as a profession, whereas most people who look upon poetry is for the love of it, but yet again it represents another perspective http://www.artofmanliness.com/2012/03/22/so-you-want-my-job-poet/
The poet whose story I found most profound is Wilfred Owen - he not only captured the misery of war but wrote poetry while in the battle and lost his life in battle http://www.telegraph.co.uk/books/authors/jeremy-paxman-why-wilfred-owen-was-the-greatest-war-poet/
All of this to me means immense diversity whether that be mastery, meaning or magic.21/08/2016 #3 Mark AnthonyThank you Darryl, there seems to be some good words here!
I was some where once and joined a writers group.I was 22 at the time and the only writing I had really partaken in was when I was at School as well as,letters This was the first time I had joined any sort of writers thing. We had to present something, anything at our first meeting. I kept thinking about stuff, trying to be clever, sublime and all that jazz. After all the thinking , when the day came , I had wrote nothing. I then panicked and just wrote this!
Trouble , trouble everywhere
Inside here, outside there
Brother fighting brother, friend fighting friend
When will this madness ever end
A hole in the sky, pollution everywhere
Does anyone, anywhere really care
It was off the top of my head and it certainly, to a degree, reflected how I was feeling at that time. I am 22 years older now and a lot has happened.

I always appreciate the advice of those with such a strong background in writing and social media. I hear yours and Paul's voice in my head when I'm writing.27/08/2016 #17 Charles David UpchurchSome very good suggestions, @Jim Murray. I agree with your additions, also, @David B. Grinberg.
One question, Jim. While I am familiar with the desktop publishing terms "hard return" and "soft return" ('returns' coming from "carriage returns" on typewriters and on the old dot-matrix printers), perhaps you could explain that the "hard" return is when you hit enter twice as opposed to the "soft" which is created by hitting enter just once (and the latter does not always appear as a new line on the editing screen in Pulse, Wordpress, or Producer). Unless I have totally misunderstood, sir.27/08/2016 #15 David B. GrinbergGood advice, @Jim Murray. I would also add this to make long-form posts more reader-friendly: 1) Use compelling photos, images. 2) Use bullets to break up lists or make your main points. 3) Use sub-headlines to break up paragraphs. 4) Use the big point size and/or quotation readout on important messaging (which breaks up text). I always try to use all the aforementioned techniques. I hope they're working!

I don't look good in plaid.24/08/2016 #161 Michael D. DavisI'm new to beBee, having heard about it on another social media network. With some major changes in the way this other network operates and experiencing how people are restricted in their ability to connect with others there, I've made the decision to join my fellow bees here and not only connect, but contribute, to creating a honey of an opportunity for all of us to not only enjoy, but benefit from personally and professionally.24/08/2016 #160 Raji Wahidy, D.M., M.Eng, B.EngIncreíble sums it quite well ! Always believe in the success of a business where the leadership team lives and breathes their work every single moment of their day. @Javier beBee chapeau bas, as we say in French, for being in the front line and close to your team and facing your clients on the ground. That's what will make beBee successful. Obviously, the amazing team that you have supporting you is an added plus. So far, I have experienced a professional affinity network, which brings me pleasure to be part of. Keep on excelling and breaking new grounds. ¡vale! ¡vale! :)24/08/2016 #158 Andrew PorterI was on the verge of leaving social media, after the progressive demise of the dark side!! and then I received an invitation to join beBee, "nothing to loose I thought" so I joined and to' bee' honest I've never looked back, the bees are so friendly and the beBee team are most helpful, not only that but you have the tools to enable you to customise your feed to what you actually want to receive, to the undecided I say become a bee and join beBee you won't get stung!!24/08/2016 #156 Praveen Raj GullepallibeBee is a bridge; between the professional you see and the person you don't generally get to see or know, on a generic social-network platform. It is responsive, engaging, inclusive and unpretentious.
It's a community of communes where folks are more than willing to share and empathise, discuss and demystify all experience and learning.You see stuff / are shown stuff that you like to see and connect with folks based purely on your affinity quotient; and the visibility factor too is on a different level altogether.Affinity Networking is the best way to build the personal brand as well as promote enterprise. Could this pave the way for Affinity Marketing > Affinity Brand Reviews > Affinity Group Consulting > Affinity Referral (to support and promote both individuals as well as businesses with ratings and referrals)> and more?24/08/2016 #154 Aurorasa SimaSoziale Netzwerke waren für mich bisher immer eine Pflichtübung. Dementsprechend erfolglos war meine Arbeit in sozialen Medien. Der Begriff "Arbeit" sagt ja schon alles - was man nicht gerne tut, tut man nicht gut. Eigentlich sollen soziale Netzwerke ja dafür da sein, dass man die Menschen nicht nur von ihrer fachlichen sondern auch privaten Seite her kennen lernt. Aber das ist nicht die Realität auf Seiten wie Xing und LinkedIn.
Dann entdeckte ich beBee. Ein völlig neues (oder uraltes) Konzept: Menschen teilen Inhalte, die sowohl ihre beruflichen wie auch privaten Interessen abbilden. Menschen interagieren, interessieren sich, kommentieren qualifiziert. Man abonniert Themen die einen interessieren und kann Personen folgen.
beBee ist es perfekt gelungen Willkommenskultur umsetzen: Jeder ist willkommen - vom Mechaniker über den Vorstandsvorsitzenden bis hin zur Tänzerin. Der Support ist einzigartig. Jede Anregung wird ernstgenommen, die Firmengründer, Juan und Javier, legen selbst Hand an und interagieren täglich mich Benutzern, obwohl das Netzwerk mittlerweile über 11,6 Millionen Mitglieder verfügt.
Meine Artikel werden jetzt von hunderten oder tausenden von Menschen gelesen, ich verbringe erstmal viel Zeit in einem sozialen Netzwerk und es macht mir Spass. Danke, beBee!
Aurorasa Sima24/08/2016 #153 Ben PintoI asked myself "to be or not to beBee." Ask your new beBee friends for help or advice and they will make this and easy learn.

How many socials regularly contact everyday subscribers like me and communicate with them (me) on a first name basis? Just one (solamente uno), beBee!
The beBee CEO, Javier Camara Rica, is always engaged with subscribers-always. Can't say that about the other platforms I interact with. Clearly, he has skin in this game and takes pride interacting with subscribers as if you ran into him at your favorite coffee shop...cool!24/08/2016 #150 Wayne YoshidaIn networking and in social media, one of the most important things one can do is interact and engage with the people in your network. In most platforms, too many users consider "boinking a button" engagement.
But beBee is refreshingly different - members comment and discuss - agree and disagree - and for me - this is what "engagement with a network" is all about.
And, as others have said - the beBee Hq executives and staff are very active with the membership, actually listen to comments, questions and suggestions - a bonus for all of us.
Wayne Yoshida15/08/2016 #149 Javier beBeeFor those who are asking me what is beBee :),...... beBee is about professional networking through personal interests and hobbies. Take golfers, for example. It is the same concept but applied to all professions and personal interests or hobbies. Personal interests generate much more professional engagement and better business opportunities."09/08/2016 #148 David B. GrinbergI just want to reiterate, @Javier beBee, that I've never had such a great experience of engaging with such a positive and proactive social media CEO like YOU. What a breath of fresh air compared to all the hot air on competitor sites. All the bees I fly with feel the same way. Can we call you the "King Bee"? If not the how about the "King beBee Gee"? Keep buzzing!
cc: @Juan Imaz @Matt Sweetwood @John White, MBA @Teresa Gezze08/06/2016 #143 Pamela L. WilliamsAfter months of spending hours a day on other platforms I was just about to call it quits and return to the old modes of networking. I was being spammed, propositioned, and a few times attacked for comments I made on a post. I was extremely discouraged. Professionally it was difficult to interact with people from my industry; Environment and Natural Resources. Most did not have the time or inclination to get involved in Pulse and did not see a lot of value due to the limited distribution. I did however have the opportunity to come in contact with some great writers, a dream I held for myself but never pursued. These new connections encouraged and supported my efforts until I felt comfortable sharing my own thoughts. One such connection was @John White, MBA. Despite my new writing endeavors I still felt frustrated until one day John began posting about a new network; beBee. I resisted at first but with encouragement by others who I followed religiously, like @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, @Jim Murray, @Phil Friedman and many others, I decided to check out this new platform. I have never looked back. I'm rarely on Facebook; other than to share from beBee and I peruse LinkedIn only a few times a week. My social media home is beBee and I can't imagine changing that. The beBee team goes above and beyond to make the experience enjoyable and it didn't hurt that some of my first followers was @Javier beBee, @Catalina Serrano, and @Juan Imaz. I didn't even know who was running LInkedin for the first six months I was on the platform. Had beBee not come along I would not be in social media other than keeping up with long distance friends on Facebook. Thank you to all the beBee team for giving us a home where we truly feel At Home!

I (like @Milos Djukic ) always love the power of self-organizing emergence. I can see the underlying marketing DNA present and I can see beBee developing a life of its own i.e. as emergence. This kind of emergence does not grow on tree's, it is a rather rare but cultivated blessing, as can be attested to the handful of organizations that eventually become leaders in their respective fields. I acknowledge a bold movement and a new way when I see it - and I see it.26/08/2016 #182 Pamela L. Williams#159 As they say in the US South, this is just gravy!

Comments21/08/2016 #47 Jim Murray#42 @Javier beBee ...I would appreciate it if you would have this post taken down. This started off as something I thought was helpful, but it's obvious that this has struck a nerve. Also be aware that any subsequent posts I of this nature I create will not carry a beBee logo, as the last thing I want to do is create a wrong impression about this site. The downside is that it is a solid promotional vehicle in the vast majority of cases. But I certainly don't want to have to edit myself for fear of making beBee look bad. I don't want to have to edit myself for any reason, other than my own. Thanks Jim.21/08/2016 #43 Praveen Raj GullepalliMany of us have used the logo in a buzz or two, including me! Blame it on the beBee effect! Everyone feels like an ambassador! :) Talking from the brand perspective, I feel that the logo usage guidelines ought to be announced and flashed periodically to all beBees @Javier beBee. Perhaps a suggestion too that text ought to be published as text (not templatized) and the image used in a buzz could be buzz relevant or could be a meme. And Image can be kept optional maybe and not mandatory? That should smoothen things and keep the fires burning! No offence meant to any beBee buddy!21/08/2016 #41 Jim MurrayThis post is my personal opinion only. It does not reflect the attitude of beBee, in any way. This was posted as the result of concerns communicated to me about the potential of attracting trolls and spammers here, who are already starting to arrive. It was intended to be a shout out to them.specifically. So, philosophically I stand by it. But honestly, if I had thought it would cause this much consternation, I would have removed it. Which brings up the point that maybe we should be allowed to remove our posts at any time, as opposed to just within the first half hour. Because a half hour is not enough time to properly gauge reaction. @Javier beBee21/08/2016 #40 Javier beBee#32 @Franci Eugenia Hoffman @Jim Murray I fully agree Franci.

1) Jim Murray should have made it known this is his opinion and not the opinion of beBee, which anyone that uses logos, creations, etc, that reflect the beBee brand should state same are used with the permission of beBee yet does not reflect the opinion of beBee, it’s owners, stakeholders or employees
2) We all have varying opinions, if you don’t like it don’t read it.

4) Protecting and promoting the beBee brand comes first, it’s members come second
@Javier beBee @Juan Imaz @Federico Álvarez San Martín - please note #119/08/2016 #30 INNFORMATE CENTRO DE FORMACION#27 ...and the second kind....OMG Shirley ( imaginary Bee ) your post just remind me Me and my friends going to a street market....and from that moment that Bee tells you a history that has nothing to do with the post....it s only to try to became famous here. ....Now before some Bees start calling the locals with the torchs and theh forks ....is a saying that goes...the one that smelled first ...usually is the one that farted....or in latin...excusatio non petita....acusatio maifesta. The best of this network is the bees being original... Be original and let the audience rate and decide. Dont judge if you dont want to be judged.19/08/2016 #29 INNFORMATE CENTRO DE FORMACION#27 Am on your side. I ve been observing that lately many Bees use any comments to insert two kinds of remarks. One is kissing butts.....OMG SHirley ( imaginary bee ) your post is sooo cute I m you follower...so you be mine and therefore I can reach 11 thousands followers and maybe became famous here....

Comments15/08/2016 #22 Sarah ElkinsRight ON, @Chas Wyatt, thanks for the tag. Love this guy. My friend went is going to see him tomorrow night in Missoula and I'm seriously envious. There is something so magical about bringing music to others, encouraging them to dance and find joy -- even for just a few moments -- to let go of what's troubling them. It's why I sing, for sure!15/08/2016 #17 Joel Anderson#9 Thanks @Chas Wyatt I shared some of his songs with one of my nieces last night. She will be staying with us to finish her Masters in speech pathology. She is a TBI Survivor and has worked hard since her accident to meet her dreams. You helped me in that journey, and in so doing also made me look like a rockstar. She said she had never heard of him. So I thine played her Say Hey (I Love You). She just smiled and sang the entire song. You made me one proud uncle.15/08/2016 #16 Mamen DelgadoWow @Chas Wyatt... So so beautiful! Love the idea of feeling the music in every cell of my body, that how I feel sometimes and that's one of them! Thanks for tagging me, today I'll be listening Franti's music, this video made me want to give him a huge hug. Here it goes one huge one for all of you... ✨15/08/2016 #15 AnonymousI LOVE PEOPLE - I LOVE THE PLANET - @Chas Wyatt, thank you for introducing me to this 'band of brothers!

- Producer13/08/2016Interviews and Beyond: Franci Eugenia HoffmanWe can learn a lot about a person from their past and their present, and if they will let us look beyond, we can find their hidden possibilities . This interview is about the way our imagination works. It is just a way of the storyteller, sharing...
Comments26/08/2016 #58 Pamela L. WilliamsI couldn't believe it when DWordslayer asked what I thought of this interview and I said; I wrote a comment, didn't you read it? Well that comment isn't here!
So here I go again on my own, going down the only road I've ever known, like a drifter I was born to walk alone :-) Darn that back to school commercial; I can't get White Snake out of my head now!
Franci, you are a wise and wonderful woman. That you used one of my idols; Maya Angelou to speak for you did not surprise me. I can see the similarities of thought and emotion between the two of you.
Donna-Louisa seems to have the power to ask just the write questions to bring out and inner-self.
I completely agree that it is time for term limits in Congress. The plan you laid out is fabulous. Anyone that spends decades in a power position like that accumulates too much ego and power of their own.
Thank you @Donna-Luisa Eversley for bringing us even closer to our sage poet Franci. She is an writing inspiration to us all.23/08/2016 #52 Laura Mikolaitis@Donna-Luisa Eversley, I'm a bit lax in circling back to this great post - my apologies. Life has been hectic and I've been on and off the grid for the past couple of weeks. But, this is a wonderful interview and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and getting to know more about @Franci Eugenia Hoffman and her repertoire. Franci, one of my favorite take away's from this interview is this: "I would give the world love, peace and common sense." What a beautiful gift, and the Maya Angelou quotes are a perfect way to present the why.
Donna, thanks for opening the blinds and letting Franci's light shine through. What a great read!15/08/2016 #50 Donna-Luisa EversleyHey @Deb Helfrich thanks for sharing your thoughts, London is such a beautiful place I hope to live there in the near future. I've read this interview many times and I'm amazed by it also.. hahaha, @Franci Eugenia Hoffman has such deep and thought provoking thoughts her responses have spurred me to question more and go deeper into my own dreams! BTW nice profile pic ! #28
