    #7 Right now am contacting my writer friends who are well versed in Indian languages. Lets hope for the best. Am planning to pen several posts on the subject of beBee so that we can promote is as widely as we can. We should touch the core and essence of beBee so that the new bees would get the opportunity to know this wonderful platform well.

    I highly regard your pro activeness, @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador

    Hi. I hope I understood well (I used a translator) with respect to the live buzz, I took a chance, they did not look good, I would not pass the contest 😅. One of the cavalcade of kings in Madrid, and the other of the Japand Weekend in Madrid. Action 3 is my favorite, and I strive, within my means, beBee is an awakening for me in the world of networks.

    #21 No, I'm fully equipped. But the beBee Embassy will not require any work from the Ambassadors. www,myTweetPack.com already has the ability to build RSS feeds to Producer post pages. We will mine their feeds and tweet new posts as they are written.

    All the Ambassadors need to do is write a post. The system handles the rest

    We believe that One-and-Done is best

    #33 Yes @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín, is there any relevant post to video buzzing ? If i didn't dream @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood initiated a videobuzz contest in februray 2017, didn't he ? I think it is a brillant idea, but we need to get people ( not only brand ambassadors) excited about it. 1) first step would be to have a post from you or Matt in the e-embassy project about videobuzzing 2) a beBee video tutorial from PR/com team on how to use the feature with a team's example 3)If @Javier 🐝 beBee, @Juan Imaz & @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood want a worldwide massive adoption of the tool and a viral campaign on al social media: well put an incentive on (from shipped tee-shirts to freemium for a limited time and range metrics acquired per personae).

    My idea is to leverage @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood idea to have a viral video streamed on the live buzz. I mean a personal video line who i am ( i am a beBee and i buzz here on { preferred topic } ) and what i love and share. Of course if you make that inviting, any viewers on all social medias would be..heehaw.. curious. Then you know what curiosity provokes...an action..believe me we all need to do that (i will do on each available language) . So @🐝 Fatima G. Williams & @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín 1) i will post a viral video 2) i write an article on which new social media account to open 3) based on @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian tweetpack idea i will make a tutorial on how to automated Post/schedules on Platforms that are using API triggers. 4) another one on what are the best time to post in regards of Social medias. Of course i ll do all that in the e-embassy's hive impacting only 31 out of 140 !

    ...@Ian Weinberg is the expert on why this is so (this being neither a joke nor fake news...meaning it will appear to be both) --suffice it to say, in the movie "Godfather III"...when Al Pacino's famous "Michael Corelone character" uttered that famous line after the Atlantic City/Saza fiasco:

    #46 @Lada 🏡 Prkic well...umm... in Psychology; its considered a way to motivate social behavior --but the adjective that is used would not be "great". It wouldn't be "horrible" either...its, umm --well, there is a body of literature on the subject --to me, it's interesting to observe...but it can't work really well with folks that know the underlying science...and I'm not trying to be a "Debbie Downer"...so I will just say that its a very interesting implementation of a Social Psychology Theory, and I think its a fascinating thing to have the opportunity to observe in real time...very cool.

    #40 @Milos Djukic I will make sure that I never get the VIP label...I'm more interested in studying the "easing into algorithm" process (its inevitable of course; and, here on bebee, even this is being done in a "friendlyish/San Franciscoish" way); and the only other way to earn the VIP thingie...WITHOUT signing on for the autotwitter deal is to manually tag like a billion people with each post (which is not my style --anymore than the "automation/what-does-the-owl-say-suite thingie" is).

    I'm good with being neither a VIP nor an Ambassador...here's why (and I think everybody knows its true): I am much more entertaining when assigned to a "special agent/Man from U.N.C.L.E./Austin Powers role"...
    ...maybe they could make a little emoji for that...which I could forget to check for at the consulate mailbox ;~)

I am just initiating what is called ''perpetual movement" to leverage beBee's brand ambasadors talents and sleeping capabilities. Then Affinity Network algorithm does the heavy work. But you already know that anything in physics ..needs a lil push in the back, some kickstarts here and there" And The beBee'S BA's deal is pretty much clear...let's do a specific range of activity and at some point when time arrives, those who did, do and will keep on doing would be equaly rewarded with a defined proportion of equity.

    This is a strong statement, "but as long as we remain you and I, nothing will get done. We are a force." I couldn't agree more! You made a great point about groupthink and it's dangerous as well. I hope one day humanity become more of a "We" based society instead of, "I."

This can of worms you've had the courage to open so clearly needs airing before it can be destroyed; @Deb 🐝 Helfrich explores the idea of prevention-at-source byring or testing potential parents. I think the 'resistance' you feel Deb is maybe introducing would-be parents the concept of fearful anticipation (which threatens natural bonding), where in natural settings, it would be joy?

    Wow! Bravo @Joyce 🐝 Bowen. Courageous, raw and unrelenting. My first thought was "find a new therapist", then I thought "no, don't conform, continue to chip away at the wall and bring it down". I, You, We and Me must continue to drive awareness, we need the black sheep of non-conformance. Looking back at history and the major social shifts in history, I ask was Rosa Parks a conformist, was Dr. King, or how about President Lincoln? None. Keep the faith. . . and maybe, find a new therapist :-).

    #29 #30 Another question - why do we need licenses to marry, adopt a dog, to fish, but not raise children?

    I don't quite think the punitive approach would effect lasting change, but why is it each parent for themselves - just do your best?

    We have competency exams for all sorts of things, but not the single most crucial and complex and difficult task most humans are going to undertake - raising children.

    I can feel the resistance to this sort of intervention, but why?

    What is so crazy about enacting laws to ensure parents know about nutrition, psychology, along with the social & physical requirements to thrive - the basic curriculum of growing a human based on current science?

    Achievement to a certain percentage in order to get a license to procreate.

    Something to ponder about a strategy We could begin to consider.

    @Joyce 🐝 Bowen thank you for your bravery in bringing up this topic. It is one many will have difficulty understanding because they may not have experiences such as yours. Your contribution is overwhelmingly good in creating awareness. We live in a world where bad things happen to good people. Bad things happen to bad people. Good things happen to bad people. Awareness may not mean understanding or acceptance, but it sure takes courage to be bold enough to write. #30

    #29 @Lisa Vanderburg I hear you back. Both my parents were psychopaths. People don't understand what psychopath means unless you say, "Jeffrey Dahmer," or "Ted Bundy." People don't understand that psychopaths have children and they are often their littlest victims. I feel for you, and understand that need for connection that is so lost when seeking it from such a parent. I followed through to my degree in psychology before I understood. I think psychopaths should be sterilized, but that's just me.

    I hear you @Joyce 🐝 Bowen. I hear that awful loneliness that comes from this festering wound for so long. I know it well, and I have pretty much given up trying to 'explain' things so others may understand - they won't. That's the trouble with childhood abuse and its after-math, everyone's is different to them (at least), because they were CHILDREN when it happened and adults when they've had to learn to live with it - or not. I've realized two things:
    1. My abuser was a charming, highly intelligent psychopath. That's why when I left home at age 16, I told a couple of childhood friends, they didn't believe me. All my siblings experienced the same thing. It was stunning and made me question myself.
    2. The trouble with secrets is that the listener either feels they have to 'do' something about it, or they chose not to believe you.
    For me, I know I'm broken. Some of the ladies here know me - good wimmin! But for the life of me (and because my eldest sister killed herself AFTER she seemed so much better (with her shrink), so I can't trust that anyone can 'fix' me. But I live with it....
    You're one brave woman - more courage than I!

    #25 I do want to be clear, I don't think there are any faults, Joyce. I feel everything you said intensely. What you wrote affected me powerfully, and sent me asking NOW WHAT?

    Nobody is for child abuse. It continues. Our species does have a very long legacy of wanting to dominate and/or eradicate those not like us - for all sorts of random superficial reasons. Including that someone does something heinous. Anger hasn't been an effective long-term strategy so far.

    So I found myself pondering what is the fundamental disconnect that we feel this must stop, but perhaps, in such an intense, confused, and overwhelming way that it seems to almost preclude acting. This state goes along with the stories of how hard it is to change human nature.

    The ways we mis-anthropromorphize animal behavior is something I think about a lot. We have labelled an entire breed as demonically vicious because a few people trained their dogs to be nothing but fighters.

    How do we define cruelty? And how do we, as a species, instill it in our young and our pets? It does not arise in a vacuum.
    It comes down to faulty training, faulty thinking, and poorly designed systems that are unable to stop the cycles right now.

    Each aspect is entirely about the stories humans tell themselves and each other.

    #18 Actually, I only let myself be mad for a split second. I put her in a small cage only to allow me to move Sarah, at which point she had only killed 2; but she was so smart, she got out and killed a third pup. I immediately chalked her actions up to Nature, and vowed not to hold her accountable. And I didn't.

    #21 Well then, we have much in common, @Helena Jansen van Vuuren, It takes a lot of effort and time for me to get these 'knowings' swirling around my bodymind out into language. I try to catch my run-on sentences, but it all is smushed together in my head in even more complexity than how it comes out on the page. I get frustrated all the time at hitting the 2000 character limit.

    Anyway, this is a topic I care about. So I try to re-orient the discussion, pivot it just slightly to change how we talk it through.

    Based on how I was raised, I lead with being mired in the horror of it all, too. I get viscerally upset, nauseated. So I listen to these feelings and realize we cannot fix anything when we are sick. (And this might have been what Shiva very ineloquently reacted to. What she meant to convewy was not lets ignore the problem, but let's focus right this minute on healing you, so your hands can do the work they need to.)

    If I can help in any little way to get the conversation set back to flowing, back to love-storming, back to how very many things like Berlin walls and apartheid simply ceased quite quickly and painlessly; with none of the obviously bound to happen worst case scenarios unfolding, then we can start to increase our energy toward fixing horrific situations because we have been primed to remember that tipping points exist all around us, and we can choose to create a narrative that ignores oft-repeated 'common sense' and starts to say 'let's do this instead"

    Given that it is #NationalPuppyDay - really re-thinking how contemporary humans raise our families is a fruitful place to focus our attention, as we know each newborn is a relatively blank slate waiting to be taught.

    A concept jumped into my mind when I was reading your post.
    Harmony.
    The key could be then, not only being aware that life moves in waves but as well, to harmonise our movements with them instead of going against them.

    The one line which was printed in bold was

    "This can mark the difference between success and failure."

    It is this line which needs to be printed in the largest font size because essentially this is the actual truth - and because it is, it defines what we mean by success and how we are bound by that public image. "Successful Personal Branding" are the saddest three words today that define the actuality of our branded reality. We remain very much in the define or be defined world.

    The greatest three words are "I Am Human". It is because we live a branded existence and that this branded existence is the difference between success and failure which means that government isn't our greatest enemy, our brand is.

    The reality of "Successful Personal Branding" is the movie title "Catch-22".
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yeGMaT3PvI

    A Catch-22 situation is not something one gets out because we question it, it is the reality of that specific time, but the beauty of that reality is that in the future, we can tell our grand-children about the dark ages and that their grandpa actually lived through it.

    If I find in myself desires which no platform in the world can satisfy,the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world,for a new world,for beBee.The soul of your personal brand is wandering during the day ,it leaves your body to wander online and offline and every when you are awake it returns back to consolidate your personal brand on beBee.It wanders in darkness in search of light and on beBee to hide from glare.Whatever your joys on other platforms they vanish with the day,whatever the griefs on beBee they fade a way.

    Sparking creation

    A spot of time to spend

    Thank you, @Gert 🐝 Scholtz, for including me in your beBee Poetry Fest. I'm honored to be included with these masters of poetry.

    Ode to a Poet

    A touch of imagination
    A bit of inspiration
    A tad of ideation
    Sparking creation

    A spot of time to spend
    A message to send
    A thought to lend
    A chance to pretend

    A mind puzzle to link
    A spirit to think
    There is no brink
    We must spill our ink

    Lost in Amazon 3: How to Open the Floodgates to the First DraftMost manuscripts never even make it to the first draft stage. I find that funny.

    #15 Oh, CRAP!!! I didn't think of it sooner, but since I recorded "Happy Hour with Einstein" I could have converted it into an audioBook for Melissa, but I deleted the file. That was silly of me.

    Sorry, @Melissa Hughes!

    #14 Interesting, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian. I'm not sure how good or not good my writing dialogue is but I had a general idea of what my story would be about and just ran with it. I know there's a lot of re-work that I need to do and I don't know that I'll ever publish it, but I enjoyed writing it. I like the idea of dictation because some of my ideas come to me when a computer or paper isn't handy. Being able to record my thoughts would be helpful. As for "Happy Hour With Einstein" it is on my reading list. I've heard only good things about Melissa's book.

    Have a great weekend!

    #13 Cooooooool. I'm actually getting my ducks on a row to start testing what one can do dollar-wise on Amazon. The next post will discuss my subjects and tactics. I have two "books" ready to process. I'll start on a work of fiction next week to test just how easy dictating can be. (or not)

    I hope I can pull it off. I'm not a fiction guy. My dialog writing pretty much stinks. I'm open to suggestions (cough, cough @Paul Walters?)

    I have a funny feeling that the storyline needs to be very fleshed out before starting. I'll try and let everybody know.

    As an aside, I had thought that dictating might give a leg up to creating an audioBook format. Nope. First, it's just a draft. Second, you need to dictate punctuation.

    For the helluva it, I dictated @Melissa Hughes' "Happy Hour With Einstein" yesterday (highly recommended BTW). Not at all a first draft but I was curious.

    I did it in four shots throughout the day. Of course, I didn't need to make it up, I was just reading aloud. Still, to me, it means that it's possible to get a first draft done in a couple of days.

    At least I hope that's what it means.

    I just love the way you write, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian. You had me chuckling for sure. But you give some solid advice too :) I haven't tried dictation, but it is a viable alternative; especially when pressed for time. I'll have to check out your recommendation. As for that butt ugly first draft, I'm happy to say that I have one. 50,000 words written for NaNoWriMo. I have a ton of editing to do, but hey, that comes with the territory. I'm just pleased as punch that I actually wrote a novel!

    10/03/2017 #12 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #11 Yes, every post gets at least 3 revisions. I'm starting to use the dictation method on everything now at least for the first draft

    10/03/2017 #11 Gert 🐝 Scholtz
    @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian Your approach makes a lot of sense Paul as I mention in my comment below. Do you follow the same method when writing blog posts? First just "download" and then polish and refine? Thanks

    10/03/2017 #10 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #9 Yes, @Nicole Chardenet, and first drafts can be painful. Like ripping off a Band-Aid, it's best to get through it asap. I'm liking this dictation thing combined with transcription software.

    I prefer to dictate at my leisure then transcribe the audio file. I set it for maximum accuracy since it isn't transcribing in real-time. You can also set the slider for maximum speed if you dictate directly into it.

    Ernest Hemingway supposedly said, "The first draft of anything is shit." I've told other writers who suffer from the delusion that once they get the bastard on paper they're ready to publish, "Not even close. If Hemingway couldn't produce anything publishable on the first draft, neither can you." First drafts take more effort than later revisions, but they're the bare bones of your story, message or point. It's normal to think, "This is shit, this is shit, this is shit," while you're struggling through the first draft. And you're right, it IS shit. But it'll be much more beautiful once you're done. I mean revised and revised and revised...

    09/03/2017 #8 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #7 Exactly, Gert. One of these days I will publish a Butt Ugly First draft followed by the finished piece. Actually, maybe I should inverse the order, otherwise, no one would ever get to the finished piece.

    Or, maybe not. I'm not man enough to make a Butt-Ugly Draft public.

    09/03/2017 #7 Gert 🐝 Scholtz
    @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian Here is some really good advice. Paramount is that a first draft simply gets done – then the real process of shaping and editing starts. I had never thought of dictating a first draft - a sound idea. Thanks for this one Paul.
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    09/03/2017 #6 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #5 Agreed, if possible. For what we are discussing, it isn't, though. I just don't see how anyone can pump out 30,000 words in one marathon session.

    You do hit on a super-important point, Martin. Rumour has it that Hemmingway once wrote to his publisher, "I wanted to write you a short note but did not have the time. Here's a long letter."

    Note that here I talk about 30,000 words when in the previous installment we discussed a work of about 20,000 finished words. That implies that we will cut out a full third of what we write.

    Apart from not just getting the first draft done, the other biggest hurdle is falling in love with our words. They become like our children, and editing becomes a Sophie's Choice.

    Many people suggest a cool off period after the First Butt Ugly Draft. I know I do. I seem to recall that @Jim Murray does too. ( Maybe Jim can confirm that, although I'm pretty sure he'll hate the dictation idea)
    Martin Wright
    09/03/2017 #5 Martin Wright
    While I am not as prolific as you, I do nknowthat once you start writing a piece, your best move is to do it in one (if possible) - and then edit afterwards, you canalways add or delete as required, but that initial draft at least allows you to get things started.

    BUt writers should also be prepared to delete a lot of the article if it is drifting away from you too.

    09/03/2017 #4 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #3 That wouldn't really matter, Dean. 1 - We are talking about the first draft . 2 - If it sounds funny spoken out loud it needs revision (that's actually the surest test). 3 - Not everything I write is in my voice.

    LOL, Trent Selbrede has commented on every single one of my LinkedIn posts. He also commented on 62 client posts, not knowing it was me.

    09/03/2017 #3 Dean Owen
    I think this would work for some people. But unlike you, many people don't write as they would speak. Their writing is embellished with words that would just sound plain funny if spoken by them.
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    08/03/2017 #2 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #1 Exactly, since a first draft is just a first pass at a subject, the only important thing is to get through it. The real writing is in the fine-tuning

    At first, people wrote with quills, then pens, then typewriters, then word processing software. I don't think we can do away with typing just yet, but we can and should speed up the initial first draft.

    Anybody who thinks that's cheating or lazy never edited anything.

    08/03/2017 #1 Wayne Yoshida
    YES! @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian! I have been thinking about the ways to increase efficiency, and came to the same conclusion, but not with that piece of technology. A first draft will never get done if it is not written.

    Fortunately for beBee, it has the advantage of a great many influential bloggers and social media people who have migrated here from LI, for all the reasons that you cite in your post. A number of us raged long and hard all though 2015 at the broken promises and complete apathy on the part of LI management. But we are all here and thriving. And we are now actively targeting groups on LinkedIn to migrate, to help us build this site and make it a great opportunity for everyone. The big advantage here is that the management of this site is listening and taking advantage of the the ideas that people proffer. Big difference.

    Sad and unfortunate to lose a someone you know, whether a friend or an acquaintance. A musician's life can be tough - fear of failure, fear of staying relevant, fear of losing your audience. Fame and recognition can be fickle. So many brilliant entertainers are gone too soon due to addictions. I agree with @Sarah Elkins, a sad and not uncommon story.

    Sad and not uncommon story, @debasish majumder, and I'm so sorry for your grief. @Randy Keho's comment is the first place I went with my thoughts as well. It seems that many truly brilliant artists and musicians suffer from demons most of could never imagine. It's something about the loneliness of brilliance, I think. And in that loneliness, many self-medicate into oblivion.

    I read a book a long time ago called On Happiness (I think); the part that has stayed with me is the reminder that if we medicated all depressed, biopolar, manic geniuses, we never would have had the blessings of their art. Hemingway, Van Gogh, Dickinson, and so many more.

    I recognize your pain @debasish majumder. I've recently had the pleasure to revive a friendship that's spanned more than 50 years. She's always been attracted to musicians and was married to a talented guitarist who had played in a number of popular bands. One day, he just hung up his guitar and distanced himself from music all together, refusing to play a note. As a result, they drifted apart and subsequently divorced. She later learned, through their son, that he had been hiding a drug addiction. Talented musicians are a temperamental bunch, often finding it difficult to sustain a relationship during the best of times. They can be tortured souls, seeking comfort in ways that are clearly self-destructive, such as drugs and alcohol. Some are able to muster the courage to face and overcome their demons, some are not. Having worked with many musicians over the years, it's always disheartening to hear that another has slipped away into the darkness.

    Very deep insights and going against nature is a losing game. You expressed this fact thoroughly in your eloquent writing dear @debasish majumder. I mean these lines "We all are nature’s law abiding creatures, having no option apart from abiding her. Whenever or whoever become rebellion, instead of moving spirally, wanted to move in linear order, I guess, nature will express her acrimony and ruthlessly take its toll untimely and abruptly".

    @debasish majumder; I know that fear when the tax man comes. Though I was simply involved in an investigation of someone else, and thankfully had been good had keeping records. There is a reason they say money is the root of all evil.
    I'm glad to know you survived the suicide attempt; You have a wonderful gift with words and apparently outstanding skills as a doctor. Use those to make a difference in a world that desperately need caring, intelligent professionals. The past is gone and you have only the future to concern you. What you make of it is up to you.

    What a nice and imaginative way to reveal science in a story while discussing social issues and personal balance. Your imagination is fertile dear @debasish majumder. This is brilliant writing "I failed to keep balance with my personal, professional as well social life. My craving for wealth and greed virtually increased enormously and I eventually transform into only neutron, with immense mass value gradually in a process of transforming into a Black hole!"
    I looked into your profile and you aren't a medical doctor; yet I believed you are.

    #64 Sir @Ali Anani hats off and salute you for giving time and tagging along mentions of contributors (whether a point or paragraph or pages). About more than 2 years prior by chance saw a person contributing "likes" except for that there wasn't active activity which was for longer period, later a different approach of instances shared.. on LinkedIn updates and Twitter tweets (thoughts ran, the trends made me think, yeah some publishing will be shared soon at Amazon's shelf whether on line or on premise). It's in humane nature to get carried away, or followers to divert traffic. Some were concerned, well wishers wished.. and later there was an announcement about a publishing. And if pondered over the points in publication surely some or many (who are active on this platform, whether they are part of that publication or not I don't know. Also they might have focused on it or not, is not known to me) will find very close similarities to opinions in comment spaces they might have shared.

    #52 @Ali Anani the connected posts along with points (knowledge gems) strewn across by some awesome personas of high wisdom and subject matter gathered and neck-aced similar to beads put-forth makes fractures of fractals.. and you (and all those involved either as team or contributors) will hit the gong. The echo's will not be damped but generic effects and affects are like the acoustic reverberation. 1- "The bee hive structure is fractal and the expansion of comb's growth is contributed with team effort, but at some point an initiative been taken". 2- shell structure has similarity, contribution is from nature's natural impact. 3- similar everything that's by nature (not human replicated) carries the effects and affects of fractals.

    I am more a reader than a commenter because I can read anywhere but for writing I need a quiet place, which is not always possible to achieve. For me, commenting is as challenging as writing. Expressing an opinion related to the subject of the buzz, through the comment, can also encourage the commenter to revise and evaluate their own thoughts, as well as to challenge others to review their points of view or to learn something new.
    This is also the way how your buzzes influence your readers, dear @Ali Anani.

    23) Boost your online presence and SEO (so your blogs can easily be found in a Google key word search, for instance).
    24) Drive more traffic to your standalone personal/professional blog real estate (WordPress, etc.) and website.

    Wow, Gert, this is brilliant buzz indeed! I echo the sentiments of all those below. I love how your points capture the essence and beauty of Producer, very nice. I will share this broadly via cross-channel pollinating, of course. In fact, I believe Producer has a one-year birthday/anniversary soon. Is that right @Javier 🐝 beBee, what's the date is went live? I fondly recall the first honey I produced back in April 2016 -- and it's been all sweetness since that time.
    Also, Gert, regrets for being late on seeing this buzz, thanks very much for tagging me (that darn day job tends to get in the way sometimes, you know, the one that pays my bills. Otherwise, I would BEE the proverbial starving writer).

    I am going to re-highlight what @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝 in comment #2 said:

    beBee as a company and many individual bees will cross-pollinate your work & your personal profile across all the established channels. It is the best kind of free PR. Mutually beneficial sharing.

    Anyone who feels unheard in the vastness of the internet simply needs to try these hives.

    #19 Oh, by the way, @Candice 🐝 Galek. I watched Rosewood last night (PVR). Det. Villa was wearing one of your bikini tops. I recognized it from your feed. It's the black one with two curved cutaways over the breasts.

    That was a good choice for the show. It's sexy enough to pass for lingerie (She was getting dressed) but opaque enough to air on prime time.
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    11/02/2017 #21 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #19 #20 There is a much easier way.

    @Gary Sharpe and @Candice 🐝 Galek, you are both myTweePack members. Just ask for your feeds. You can get feeds for beBee, LinkedIn, Medium, and YouTube. Candice, you can even get a feed for your Inc articles.

    The complete list of possible feeds: personal/corporate blogs, beBee, LinkedIn, Medium, and YouTube. For contributor authors, we add The Good Men Project, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Huff Post, and Inc.

    These feeds aren't limited to 6hr polls, nor do you have to figure out how to build them. We did the heavy lifting.

    Just log in, click Request feeds from the profile page and you're done.

    Use the feeds as you will

    #19 Yes, thats what I did - pulled it into buffer and spat it out again to other social media. I don't think bebee appears on any (many?) of the sharing services yet? AddThis, etc? It's a bit of a shortcoming from one perspective. Perhaps it prevents oversharing on the other.
    Candice 🐝 Galek
    11/02/2017 #19 Candice 🐝 Galek
    #14 This is very interesting. So I could turn Linkedin posts into an RSS feed and then reshare it with buffer? What about Linkedin to Bebee?

    10/02/2017 #18 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    The YouTube connection is now fully functional. To date, we can link personal/corporate blogs, LinkedIn articles, beBee articles, Medium articles, and YouTube Videos. For Contributing Authors to those publications, we can also link The Good Men Project, Entrepreneur, Huff Post, and Forbes. By the end of next week Inc. should be live.

    Connect any of the listed and simply writing a post will store it as a reusable tweet and schedule promotional tweets.

    Now I need to go add YouTube to the promotional video I made yesterday

    #14 #15 Thanks for the link, Gary. I had trouble finding it. And, yes, it is feed43.com Just a note to anyone using myTweetPack or the like.

    The free version of feed43.com limits polling to every 6 hours. We poll hourly. They WILL shut down the feed. The premium feed43 memberships are fine.

    #7 Candice, I worked out long ago hw to grab feeds from just about anywhere. I used something called feeds43.com (I think) and developed the coding to get anyone's linkedin posts, bebee posts, youtube videos, etc, as a rss feed.

    #12 LOL, I said "I started regretting" not "I regretted." In actuality, I don't mind at al. It led to my seeing how time-consuming it was to dig around to find and store posts.

    If it weren't for helping you get set up, the auto-load auto promote would still be 3 months away.

    #7 Yes, IFTTT has an annoying habit of breaking. So does Zappier. IFTTT recently did an unannounced change to how GPS works.

    I had an applet that would turn my Bluetooth on when I got about 500 yds from my house. Another would turn it off when I came back.

    I had another two applets that would do something similar with my thermostat. They would lower and raise the setting when I left or returned. A 5km range triggered them.

    Those applets worked flawlessly for two years. Then, they didn't.

    There I was sitting in my home office when my cell rang. "Hello? Hello? Hello?" No one there.

    It took me a while to figure out that my car's Bluetooth was still connected to my phone.

    I only figured it out when I noticed how chilly it was in the house. The thermostat was still at 50F. LOL

    Still, IFTTT can be used to mimic many myTweetPack functions, but no, not easily or seamlessly. Why bother when we are not only powerful but cheap too. As @Gary Sharpe said, "Cheap at three times the price."

    Our end goal is One-and-Done. We are probably the only site where dropping site visits is a GOOD metric.

    Candice 🐝 Galek
    08/02/2017 #7 Candice 🐝 Galek
    Paul we have 4 or 5 rings of IFTTT setup but I find that they are constantly breaking down. And we have to rehire the guy that set them up every time as they are pretty complex the way they are structured!

    IMPORTANT UPDATE: LinkedIn in its infinite wisdom has cut the option to subscribe to an author's posts in its Oh So Wonderful (not) new interface. That means it's back to the drawing board for LinkedIn RSS feeds and promo updates.

    Existing feeds seem to work, but new ones don't

    Computer Hell Number FIVE-0It's happened. Again. Because I have Windows 10. A scareware attack. So instead of getting things accomplished this saturday, I'm scanning everything on my computer. And changing every password on it as well. Annoying...     It appears Windows 10...

    FRANCI, SOMETHING IS REALLY WRONG ON BEBE. I CANT PUBLISH. WHEN I CHOOSE THE PLACES I WOULD LIKE THE ARTICLE TO GO, THE BUTTON TO PICK THEM, IS CUT OFF AT THE END OF THE PAGE. THE PAGE WON'T SCROLL ON THE RIGHT. PUSHING THE 'PUBLISH' BUTTON DOESN'T WORK. I'VE GOT A BUNCH OF ARTICLES SAVED, BECAUSE BEBE CAN'T PUBLISH THEM. I TRIED TO WRITE THEM PRIVATELY ABOUT IT, AND THE SPACE WHERE YOU TYPE WHAT HAPPENED, WOULDN'T ACCEPT THE TYPING. THIS IS THE FOURTH TIME AT LEAST THIS HAS HAPPENED. EVEN GOOD OL LINKEDIN CAN PUBLISH AN ARTICLE STILL. QUITE FRUSTRATING. I'M ABOUT TO GIVE UP ON THIS.

    #8 Thats for sure. One of my scans found something today, so it's 'clean the computer day' once more! What is your take on the huge computer records leak? It seems that whoever did it put a lot of people possibly in danger. It also confirms what I've always thought~ absolute power corrupts. Absolutely. I'm sure there's reams of microfilm of LOTS of people. What a waste of time!!!

    #9 Same here. I asked my sweet hubby for a different computer and got it at Christmas. I'm still setting it up soley for writing. The Lenovo, as much as I despise it, has some good attributes. A great big screen, and very good graphics program. Love it, even if its slow. And it has amazing storage capabilties. It does tend to "stash" things in odd places. The other strange thing? If you throw something out...it disappears. There's no "trash" icon or place. Strange. My husband is happily using our outdated XL program on another Dell Latitude. They are tanks. I got another Dell Latitude, a 'younger' computer, refurb, with Windows 7. Perfect for writing. Love it. The combo of the Lenovo's odd quirks and Windows 10 intrusive program is enough to make a person pull their hair out by the roots! I've wound up disabling half the stupid things Windows 10 has added into the program to find out as much as they can about you. Annoying. I personally don't want my computer telling me jokes. I mean...creepy? lol. Lisa Vaught n' Frax

    I don't follow blind links and scan every web site before visiting. I hate Microsoft, even though I have an email acount there (I will be changing that in the near future). I use Apple's OSX, but, I fear Apple is following in Microsoft's footsteps since Jobs kicked the bucket. In my opinion, their last good OS was "Mavericks", but, they won't let me go back, so I am stuck on crappy El Capitan.

    #6 Lisa,

    The scareware could still be there, waiting for a specific time, etc., really you need to search the registry, but I am glad that you are back up and running. If it happens again, remember to write down anything from the message, then Google, that will give you a name of the scareware and the web page may provide the name of the "scareware progname*.exe" file, then you would use that to search the registry, then you just delete it.

    #4 Thank you for all the great helps Milic. I scanned with spybot, caught a few things, then scanned with sophos. The 'scareware' isn't there anymore, so I believe I killed it. Something about Win 10 horrible version. Funny you mention Linux. I have a plethora of riches this christmas: my hubby got me a refurbished Dell latitude running Win 7, my favorite. I have a backup Dell, also a Latitude, exposed to a virus, but cured by IT. I'm going to put in a new HD, then start to try and learn Linux. Windows has just about pushed all the buttons I have re: each version being worse than the last!

    #1 Thanks Franci. It always stuns and amazes me when someone has a clever website, and either decides to "upgrade" it (Wix) or shudder...sells it to Microsoft. As we all know Microsoft hasn't a clue. I use LinkedIn as exibit A. Each day another 'little present'. I still post, because of the folks following. I do not doubt that it will not do well in the end unless they sell it back!

    Lisa,

    I hope this helps.

    I use few programs that clean the windows, not my laptop or PC but fellow employees or people I work with that are not computer savvy. I do not use Microsoft Windows, as a default operating system. I use Apple Mac OS X, with Parallels virtual desktop, and have Linux and Microsoft Windows 8 installed at the moment. Due to the nature of what I do, I need access to the verity of operating systems.

    I converted few employees to Linux over the years, no issues six-plus years later, they are happy. Many have decided to go with Apple products, which I use, I do not recommend anything directly, it always your choice.

    I decided to put together few tools, that I use to clean victims laptops/PCs, here are few programs that work for me, you may use it, or you can search the web and find something better that would work for you.

    Malwarebytes (https://www.malwarebytes.com/)

    AVG (http://www.avg.com/us-en/homepage)

    SUPERAntiSpyware (http://superantispyware.com/)

    Depending on the issue, you may need to run all these tools from safe mode. That will allow you or give you access to laptop/PC in standard mode. I use the tools above to get control over the PC, then I use "Regedit" to make sure no malicious programs are running upon boot up, and that is where it gets a bit tricky, you need to know where to look and what you can remove. Perhaps that will be an article for future, but this is just a quick guide for anyone to be able to save money and time.

    Now, this is a tool to use after you clean the laptop or PC from unwanted malware, scare-ware, ran-somewhere, use it to make sure there are no broken links in the registry and cleans the browser cache.

    CCleaner (https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download)

    And here are few guides to help anyone get started in the cleaning process, cleaning unwanted malware, scare-ware, ran-somewhere.

    Oh oh - computer gremlins at work. I have heard and seen bad reviews on Lenovo. I just recently bought a desktop computer and as I was researching, I saw the Lenovo. I ran like the wind because of the poor reviews. And LinkedIn - are they going through a phase or what. It's one messed up site, IMO. Stay cool and glad to see you on beBee.
See all
