- Producer24/09/2016The Key Philosphocial Differences Between beBee Ambassadors and "Influencers" on Other Social NetworksLately, I've been seeing a lot of discussion about beBee Brand Ambassadors and several have called me into those discussions for feedback. In fact, much of this blog has been taken from my responses in the comments on a viral conversation on...
Comments25/09/2016 #72 Deb Helfrich#71 #70 You both have summed it up nicely - the criteria is sincere effort. The whole point of this platform is the way that it is meant to accommodate each person tailoring their experience. Each ambassador does their own thing and contributes to the ultimate success of the platform in a number of unique ways. The commonality is that you do invest your time in a way that makes others enjoy their beBee experience.25/09/2016 #71 Ali Anani#69 I always believed that money is the reward for doing professionally a job out of the heart. Money is a reward or by-product of devotion and excellence. Focusing on money is not the way. I applaud your comment @Javier beBee View more#69 I always believed that money is the reward for doing professionally a job out of the heart. Money is a reward or by-product of devotion and excellence. Focusing on money is not the way. I applaud your comment @Javier beBee and I am in full support of beBee Close25/09/2016 #70 debasish majumderlovely insightful post @John White, MBA. the distinction of a beeBee ambassador are nicely crafted where one may be surely allured by the colorful contribution and the salient features of ambassadors, how they take the cudgel to make this platform a distinct one by their sincere effort, unlike other social media platfor. enjoyed read. thank you for sharing the post.25/09/2016 #69 Javier beBeeThanks a lot for your comments. We are willing to have more ambassadors, people who is making beBee better and bigger, but remember that being an ambassador is also an "attitude". Ambassadors dont have any privileges. They will only get money from equity if the company succeeds. Who is sharing equity with the users in their company ?25/09/2016 #68 John White, MBA#66: @John Marrett: If users are wearing the scroll wheel that is a good sign! It means we have a lot of buzzing going on here on beBee! As for the comment system, in a future release beBee will give users a choice between the existing commenting system and one more Facebook-like. We realized that some users like the current system and others prefer a more "traditional" one. So, why not give them a choice?!25/09/2016 #65 John ValledorThank you for explaining the metrics behind emerging beBee jargon e.g., VIB.
The fact that a beBee VIB is going the extra step in sharing the benchmarks that define scalable designations goes far beyond its competitors that do not.
I now know how to play by the rules of this social media channel--thank you!25/09/2016 #58 Dean OwenI'll just add one point. The ambassador program is not like an authorised spokesperson system you might find in a bank, where only employees designated authorised spokesperson are permitted to conduct any form of external communication regarding the company. As such, what ambassadors say in public does not have to go through a vetting process for prior approval. So beBee does not control what is said, and ambassadors are free to represent their personal brand. So once in a while an ambassador might say something that does raise a few eyebrows. But rather than publicly lambast them at a risk of turning people off beBee with all the snide comments, why not send them a PM, or even send beBee management a PM with your concerns. If we all care so much about beBee, let's keep it civil. And let's not forget, ambassadorships can be revoked.25/09/2016 #57 AnonymousPart II
Thank you @John White, MBA for this brilliant and highly necessary post.
I take this opportunity to point out once again three key differences and comparative advantages:
1. We have a same task to provide among a wider audience a clear awareness about the global transformations that are underway on beBee (on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and other media).
2. Many of us (with or without the title) are on the same mission and fortunately we are not alone (The Butterfly Effect).
3. Currently, beBee is the only social network that operate in accordance with the principles of emergence, interdependence, diversity, modes of interaction, and self-organization, which are typical for complex adaptive systems This is the reason for success and perseverance.
And the most important distinctions between beBee and some other social networks. The difference in:
1. “Philosophy” (affinity concept and the future "fractal approach"),
2. Influencer marketing concept,
3. Algorithms (manipulations) and
4. User experience (UX)25/09/2016 #56 AnonymousPart I
Thank you @John White, MBA for this brilliant and highly necessary post.
I have recognized, here on beBee something much more important than being cool, not so cool or an Ambassador, and that is people-centric leadership and an announcement, or more precisely, the forerunner of the fractal evolution in social media. This concept, that is still not completely defined, I have presented through the series of critical posts and discussions on beBee about conventional influencer marketing pitfalls and also within the LinkedIn post titled: "The Fractal Revolution in Society, Social Media First". This was a joint “research” of like-minded people, beautiful beBee members (with or without the title), nothing less and nothing more. This is something like evolution and ongoing process, just like this discussion, that is shaped within the affinity concept that was provided by beBee network.25/09/2016 #55 Pamela L. Williams#52 That place was, is and will forever be a nightmare to me but I met some great people and most of them I followed to beBee, the best move I ever made and the author of this post is the one who started the migration. He found it, raved about it to us, and the next thing you know we're all buzzing around the hives. I found my voice here and I truly do love being a part of the community. You'll get that large community back Karen. We're still young but all of us are working hard to help the site grow. My advice, continue to interact on other sites, most of us do, but you'll soon find that beBee is more hospitable to growth.25/09/2016 #54 Dean OwenThanks for laying it out so clearly @David Grinberg. I hope that with this article, the daily conversation I have been seeing on the LinkedIn Influencer program will become somewhat sporadic. Important to discuss once in a while, yes, but we see the same conversations every single day and usually from the same people.25/09/2016 #52 Karen Anne Kramer ~ CNN Women Leaders 2015#33 Pamela I remember you from LI . I created and owned my own Group. Boy did LI screw me over . I had 8000 Contacts, 90 articles, was in the top 10%. came in at 6 all the time with the rich and famous Linkies . They didn't like my mug shot so I woke up one day and was locked out !! So were my 800 Group members. LI still sends me emails. LI is LOL personified! Soo.. I know who my contacts are and my Group members. I had a shot of Jack Daniels that morning, put my dogs in my keep and spent a week in the Mountains. Got pneumonia. Good thing I had my Jack with me. So good to see you !! bzzzzzz

Your a doll :)) Yikes, most of the day waiting on cars, hope they are fixed now. I just bought a few new T-shirts and a pair of lightweight shorts for our Georgia Trip this week. I need to go to Amazon and order a cooling device for my neck. We will be out in the heat until 1pm or after. Looking forward to our trip, love cheering our son on and others. Long over due mini vacay for my husband too!17/09/2016 #40 Franci Eugenia Hoffman#39 It was good talking to you today, Lisa. You are truly genuine. We spent most of yesterday at AAA waiting on our cars to be fixed. One of them was supposed to be ready today. Ha! Too many cars - too may problems. Stay cool - I saw another leaf fall today. 🍂 🍁16/09/2016 #38 Lisa Gallagher#37 I hope the humidity won't be extreme, or the day of my son's Ironman event will be one LONG day. I don't do well outdoors all day in heat/humidity. I keep my A/C set at 70 when it's that hot. But I also sleep with my thermostat set at 64-66 degs at night during winter. I'm a hot blooded gal, haha. I can imagine you wouldn't breathe well if you don't have it cooler, the humidity is like a blanket that stifles many people's breathing!

Comments05/09/2016 #9 CityVP Manjit#8 There is one thing I note from my Brazilian bee friends and some Spanish is that they often end a note with the word "hugs". I inherited a lot of the British stiff upper lip reserve, as well as stoic outlook and including the useless British habit of saying sorry to everything and associated silly sensibilities, so much so I do identify with this Monty Python clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oeSFAIKaX4
In England nobody would sign off a comment with the word "hugs" and being born of working class stock, we did not have pecks on the cheek and that kind of greeting one gets when the client works in HR and one awkwardly does the social hug greeting.
Yet the most powerful antidote to vulnerability is the security of others, is warmth, is the empathy and the sensibility that expresses hugs. When I read that you are feeling the vulnerability of your humanness, I can choose something different to the British sensibility I acquired being born and brought up in England and that something different is my Indian heritage - where all the folks back in India greet with hugs and smiles. If this was about me then I would be developing my Indian part of my psyche.
This however is for you Pamela - and so I dig back into my British Sensibility and more Monty Python, this time "Confuse-a-Cat" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6ZR3um4q20 If by the end of watching this there is not a smile on your face and energy in your spirit, then let's work on making you as British as I can sometimes most painfully be, but in a most charming way of course.05/09/2016 #6 Pamela L. Williams#5 Actually I sort of messed up. I wanted to create a separate post with the update and instead published an edited original which meant I could share any farther and all the original comments stayed...OOPS! I had to add that first sentence when I realized what I had done...haha. Brain burp as I like to call my brain wave slips!01/06/2016 #3 Lisa GallagherI'm glad to hear you thought of yourself and took that well needed time alone @Pamela L. Williams! It's odd but I find I get more work done when I have the house to myself. Maybe we get more work done and without stress because we aren't distracted? I agree, beBee is now my first home! I used to check Linkedin as soon as I logged on but no more, like you, I check beBee and Linkedin is becoming an after thought. I still check in because I have connections who have yet to buzz over to beBee. I keep posting articles to them in private emails. I think I've convinced another Linkedin Connection to join beBee. I went to my stories hive last night and was shocked to see all the stories I missed and the new stories that have been posted. Thanks to @Javier beBee and @Daniela Umpierrez my hive is growing- and thanks to people like you too Pam, it's growing. If I can be of any help to others please don't hesitate to reach out to me. My sincerest appreciation to everyone who's buzzing and working together in unison. This is a happy place to be a Bee!31/05/2016 #1 Cyndi wilkinsWelcome back my dear!

I know the formatting was a problem on download - and glad you fixed it. I just want you to know that this bee didn't let that escape her memory ;).26/08/2016 #185 CityVP ManjitMarvelous! 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! Which means you and @Javier beBee have already provided the main course and that is a site that I truly enjoy using. I promote beBee because it is a wonderful alternative to the others. Thank you for the opportunity to work with the beBee team to bring this site to the ultimate heights of success!

Comments06/08/2016 #9 David GrinbergKudos to @Jim Murray on his ambassadorship. And kudos to @Javier beBee for a smart and savvy selection. I was fortunate in getting to know Jim and his prolific prose in the "Lumpy Kingdom" (as he wittingly calls LI) before we collectively spread our wings and buzzed over here to taste sweet honey and cross-pollinate per affinity social marketing. Jim is a natural writer, excellent communicator, and all around nice guy -- albeit a bit cynical at times, which just makes his writing more interesting and thought-provoking.
- 31/07/2016I have a new Hive, "Public Figures" and I'd like all Ambassadors to either Contribute their Fav Post, or do an Intro for all, especially NewBeeZ! If you are unable, pardon me for setting your table ... someone else will have to guide me along also, to be sure I miss no one!

Keeping it in the spotlight!
First, I'd like each Ambassador to provide an intro, or a Fav Article, or a Buzz that lets us know who you are, where you came from, and who you are.
All in fun.
Later, after the Ambassadors get "First Place" we can all add any Public Hero we like from beBee or otherwise. If you consider this to be a "Book on beBee Public Figures," then you would be writing a Short Story on one person.
Multiple entries encouraged. Write on yourself, each Ambassador, then the rest are free to do as they please!
