Comments23/03/2017 #66 Devesh Bhatt#61 Bebee is a great match for India and a lot of offline potential. Catch them early like google , a page which Linkedin tore out even after immense success, they are going the Govt way.
Small businesses , freshers, self employed and specially apsiring women. Thats India. I will be relocating to Delhi NCR in June and the sheer jump in growth through my network will become evident.
As far as cultural marketing rules are concerned , great idea. I would like to add Gujarati, Tamil and Bengali people are more proactive to their own language within the Small Business segment. They pick things quickly. But then it is a question of how the languages may make the app heavy.. right now its a light app and opens up in poor net areas
For the non residents add Punjabis and Malayalis. I found Kannada and Telugu people to be flexible despite a preference for the mother tongue, they are equally proactive with Hindi and English.
This is just personal experience talking, i will have to validate this amd update it.
Still, i think the Hindu addition means you also add Budhism and Sikhism and Jainism (jains are majorly a business community that likes to network) etc etc.
I think the language aspect can be drilled down, after all if i have a good user experience and my requirements are valued and i am respected, i would not mind the cultural denominators.
Few get the benefits, a bit of handholding and the numbers will swell. That is why i wait for the new app.. if it comes out as desired and you can print this it will grow in India like anything23/03/2017 #65 Paul Walters#60 @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador Yup, I'm in. Living as I do in Bali in Indonesia I am asked when talking about beBEE why there is no Bahasa Indoneisian .

I hope you get the desirable leve of sleep to remain the way you are, full of energy.
You don't owe me anything, i am glad you liked my words.
I was contemplating the same idea of an ambassador hive, but i think too slowly for the market, specially the digital space.

Comments17/03/2017 #23 Laura Mikolaitis@Aleta Curry, thank you for sharing this post and tribute to @John White, MBA. He is one of my favorite contributors who I have learned a great deal from (mostly silently in the wings). My husband occasionally will nudge me about the time that I spend on social media too but then I remind him about my long term goals for writing and he usually comes around. There are many inspiring people here and on other platforms and it is because of them that I continually inspired to keep cultivating and writing content. I look forward to reading more of yours.17/03/2017 #15 Aleta Curry#5 You made me literally LOL, @Harvey Lloyd. What a good sport!
If your first introduction to social media was Facebook, I can well understand your disdain, because I shared it.
Facebook has since become one of our best marketing tools (I've got an article about that floating about somewhere), but when it comes to social media platforms, there's no one-size-fits-all. You're going to have to wiggle on the end of the hook for a while in order to realise what will work best for you.17/03/2017 #12 Aleta Curry#3 Hi there @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. You wrote: 'I'm not sure if John is aware he inspires so many in different ways.'
Probably not; that's why we have to tell him, and all the Bees who are just like him.
Thanks for taking the time out to reply; your support is so greatly appreciated that I just can't tell you how much! And yeah, I think you're right, Marty must've been in a mood!17/03/2017 #11 Aleta Curry#2 Well, if I made your week, John, then it's mutual.
Nobody's commenting skills rival Deb's, so as the kids say, 'don't even try it!' (Do the kids still say that?)
Anyway, you don't have to thank me, but I'm certainly up for a Skype session and will always make time for you.17/03/2017 #10 Aleta Curry#1 Thank you, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich! You've got such a way with words, and your support means the world to me!
'@John White, MBA is saving many from the disease of shouting into the wind and wondering where all the engagement went! And he does it with genuine street-smarts crossed with humility that also inspires me.'
And it's true, that!16/03/2017 #8 David B. GrinbergThanks for this buzz, Aleta, expressing how so many of us feel about @John White, MBA. John has spread himself far and wide in being an invaluable asset to so many of us. We all owe him a colossal debt of gratitude for being such a role model.
As I like to say: I'm trying to follow in John's footsteps but they're big shoes to fill. Thanks for ALL YOU DO, JOHN. We salute you!

Comments02/03/2017 #42 Robin BartonI'm not offended at using the "F" word at all, because I swear like a trooper at home. I tolerate it on here, on FB, on Twitter, because sometimes it just seems like the only word to use, especially as an adjective. Because LinkedIn has billed itself with a certain type of brand, I would be shocked to see any cussing on there. I think on beBee we should expect colorful language because some people are on here to write personal stories too, not just business. However, I do not condone harassment, name calling, and abuse on any online site. I refuse to subject myself to that. Just my two cents. And if I may be hypocritical, when my grown children swear, I cringe inside, and usually physically wince. I know, I know, I'm not one to talk, but I didn't cuss in front of them when they were children, and it's just difficult to hear it from them. I'm sure that's a parent/child thing...14/02/2017 #34 Javier 🐝 beBee#16 @Mike Rana this is my opinion :) https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/never-put-all-eggs-in-one-basket-keep-linkedin-but-explore-bebee14/02/2017 #31 Robin BartonAbout LinkedIn, it's like one of my blog posts on here said, I want to see professional business interaction on LinkedIn. I don't want to see bullying, harassing, or you stole my trademark etc etc (which I just saw and was appalled at the initial rude complaint from a CEO, who was wrong by the way) If you have a trademark issue with someone, keep it private. Being online does not give you permission to be a jerk! And if you act like that at your place of work, then you aren't a true leader o professional. I expect that kind of stuff on Twitter and Facebook, even though I don't like it or support that type of interaction. We all talk about branding yourself, and I think those rude people have branded themselves in a negative way. Hope they weren't looking for clients or jobs. Right now, that's my biggest complaint about LinkedIn. I get so much out of reading articles there and making connections that I will continue at this time to use LinkedIn. I'm still trying to get the right words to describe beBee and what it means to me. Someday soon.14/02/2017 #30 Mike RanaYes, I have seen those very posts. Many of them have become hyperbolic in nature. But, as I mentioned in my comment, I see a lot of LinkedIn bashing on here that isn't wholly supported by facts. I like seeing the two networks compete against each other, but over-the-top vitriol is not needed.
The new layout has issues - no doubt about it. I have expressed some frustrations of my own over both the UI and UX. I have also made it a point to draft an email to express my concerns, and make some recommendations. I've experienced the same throttling of posts/updates on Facebook (both on Pages and my personal account); distribution is an issue on most platforms (though I have nobody I can reach out to for that).
I actually think LinkedIn has teams working on the issues its users are experiencing. I don't think they want angry users anymore than users want to be angry with the network. I've seen a plethora of postings about how LinkedIn experts are experiencing difficulty because their clients may not have the new version. Additionally, if functionality isn't working as it should, it makes it hard to give any consulting - neither of which is good if your business is in marketing or consulting.#2914/02/2017 #29 John White, MBA@Mike Rana: to your point, I actually see more LinkedIn bashing on LinkedIn than any where else. Have you been following some of the threads over there? They contain 1000's of negative comments (some factual some not) regarding the new layout. While I try to avoid bashing them, I can understand the user frustration. I spent several years building my following to 36k with a commitment from LinkedIn to distribute my posts to 100% of my network. Then, they changed the rules of the game. Now, I dont know if my posts reach even 15% of my network.14/02/2017 #28 Jim 🐝 Cody#26 @Robin Barton.That's exactly why I stated at the beginning of this buzz that these are my opinions and should not be construed as beBees. Freedom of speech is a constitutional right; however we all have a choice. I fully respect anyone's opinion and agree that unfollowing and deleting should be anyone's personal prerogative.
Buzz on!14/02/2017 #26 Robin BartonI totally agree with what Jim said, if you are a beBee brand ambassador, more is expected of you because you are representing a brand. However, I am and always will be against any type of censorship in any way, shape or form. (unless it has to do with small children) That said, I suppose if something bothers you on your own string or post, by all means, delete and unfollow if necessary.14/02/2017 #25 Kevin PashukGood points Jim. Accepting a beBee ambassadorship comes with the awareness that we will work to support the hive (organization) with the skills we have. It never means blind faith or partisanship, but that we are always constructive in our comments, posts, and promotion.

Comments15/01/2017 #43 Praveen Raj GullepalliHey Chas! Congrats again! Outside beBee land Brand Ambassadors are engaged/contracted or bought to endorse something good (or even dubious), irrespective of their patronage or conviction in the efficacy of the product or service being endorsed. Here the only thing that matters is your belief in beBee. If you got the title from beBees, rest assured, you earned it in full. What's left to do is to do what AmBees are supposed to do, best you can ;) I felt like an AmBee long before it was announced. I even expressed that. Because I believed then as I do now that this is the place for incubating value-based relationships that go the distance. That go into personal space as deeply as they do into professional space. Keep buzzing away!15/01/2017 #42 Lisa 🐝 GallagherI just read through the comments and agree with everyone. If Javier feels you qualify, then by golly, you sure do! @Chas ✌️ Wyatt, you are an uplifting person with a very positive attitude. I'm glad you were appointed. Loved reading about your journey on Social Media. I used to be a myspace addict until it fell apart, then we all left at once and joined Facebook. I have a love/Hate relationship with facebook. We don't use it for business because it doesn't suit my husband's needs. I used to have fun being 'me' on facebook until family members I hardly know found me, friends from HS found me and on the list goes. Now, I feel I can't just let loose like I used to there. That was sort of my playground ;-) My first experience with chat on the internet was using Windows 3.11 IRC. Wow... talk about a dinosaur but I made connections and even went to Penn State and volunteered at a golf outing for some friends I met online. I attended their awards dinner and met the infamous Jerry Sandusky and Joe Paterno... ick, cant believe I actually shook hands with Sandusky now!15/01/2017 #38 Gerald Hecht#37 @Aleta Curry I hope that you are feeling better; I just wanted to say that both you and @Chas ✌️ Wyatt make me feel less isolated --I also have no FB, Twitter, Snap, Instagram, etc. accounts --I feel like I don't know what's going on half the time...but that's the "price" I guess... I don't want those things.
Again Chas, I think that you are a cool (and cool headed) ambassador!15/01/2017 #37 Aleta CurryThanks for tagging me, Chas ✌️ Wyatt Sorry, I had a medical emergency (sudden, severe drop in Iron levels) and I've been resting (yes, really!) for a couple of days.
I see everyone has already addressed your 'fitness for ambassadorship' questions, so there's nothing for me to add. I will speak a little to your chronicle of your social media journey, though, which I read with great interest. I think we've been at beBee a comparable length of time, though you were here first and I remember how happy I was when I got your 'follow'. Your social web journey is very similar to mine, and these are the reasons, I daresay, you brought this to my attention.
Since I have spent so much time marketing my business, I have tended to stick to the large venues, with one caveat: the system has to work for me, that is, it has to be pretty intuitive and easy to use. I also have to get the feeling that there is engagement of some sort; the writer in me just wants to know that *someone* is reading what I write. beBee answers that for me, so that's why I'm here and that's why I tell others about it. It's really a matter of customer satisfaction: you put out a good and useful product, your fame spreads by word of mouth. That's it, really.
Like you, I still don't get the charm of Twitter; Facebook I do use because, as I've said before, Facebook for business is invaluable to what we do. Since you mention Pinterest, I'll say that it might suit you, because you are an artist. I have an account there but just can't keep up so it's staledated. I might also suggest Ello; the reason I'm not active there is because it's such a visual platform that seems to really suit people with portfolio, which is why I mention it to you.
Okay, that's it. And yeah: you're a great Ambassador, blah blah blah. :D13/01/2017 #32 Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand AmbassadorChas, you are an honest to goodness representative, and a true ambassador. I agree with Chas, and do I truly love what Javier beBee, Juan Imaz and the entire beBee team have created.

Comments07/01/2017 #44 Lyon BraveIt's more accessible than other social media types. Facebook is only good for your friends. Twitter you can add everyone, but there is no connection even with all the tweeting. Instagram is causal and great for images, but not friends. I feel like at bebee, you can really make pen-pals and new friends, without coming off as a troll. I don't know why, but being a bee makes you more likable than a random on facebook.07/01/2017 #40 🐝 Fatima Williams#24 Contd
Every time you comment You share information that we would have otherwise not known. Like who knew there was a ""The Daughters of the American Revolution" in Washington DC. You talk about masculinity in its politics there. Imagine other parts of the world.
Women are still being trampled in some places I know. I was disheartened to read political views on the recent Mass Molestation of women on New year's eve in Bangalore , when everyone all over the world were welcoming the New year.
I wish that Women are looked up for more than just the feminine part that exists in them. I wish the world had more people like yourself.

Comments06/01/2017 #23 Mohammed Sultan@Max J.Carter.As you chose your words carefully you have to do the same with the pictures you are demonstrating ,people can seriously misunderstand what it's they are not saying .Posture can be seen as a metaphor that distorts the main idea.A well balanced posture is also more pleasurable and emotion calmer.No matter how you view it ,good posture is crucial for getting the readers positive perception. Ambassadorship is a responsibility, not un opportunity,as you said.06/01/2017 #20 Max🐝 J. Carter#19 Interesting choice of words Michael.
I am curious if you are familiar with the beBee Brand Ambassador program?
As far as I know I am not a legend in anyone's mind, if that changes....
There are many who use social media to puff up their ego, it's the only reason any of us steps and speaks up is because we feel we have something to say that needs to be heard and we make that decision on our own.
Our ego is our identity an everyone needs one or you do nothing for your life. It's about bringing a healthy ego to the discussion. We do have to puff that up a little to think we should speak here and now with what we have to say or no one would ever write anything or say anything.
That would be boring.06/01/2017 #19 Michael GormanYou have become legendary in your own mind. Ambassador for what?
Social Media is a media opportunity, for humanity to use-we can escape the tyranny of corporate dominance, if you can make a connection with specific groups you can build your communication and overcome the gatekeepers that were set up in the 20th Century, this is the great opportunity of social media-not to puff out your own ego.05/01/2017 #18 Max🐝 J. Carter#17 Sounds like you have a lot to write about @Dorothy Cooper. I am curious to read your thoughts on those first two very socially relevant issues and your unique view in living.
Sounds like your story might inspire others who are going through similar even though it might not be popular.
It's that inspiration that is needed so much more than something popular. It would be nice if the things that really matter were more popular. ;)05/01/2017 #17 Dorothy CooperToday, I wanted to puke on social media. I want to write about the disability abuse issue and I thought this is close to home for me. I have a son with Autism and I use a wheelchair. So many issues, I guess maybe I need to address something like retail therapy while being snowed in! My lab's birthday is tomorrow. He and I survived two knee replacements, two shoulder replacements, and four hip surgeries. I am so grateful for that! Thanks for all the posts and efforts on this great platform. Dorrie05/01/2017 #15 Mamen 🐝 Delgado#14 You know, not so long ago I had the need "to reconcile myself with the human race", as I liked to say. It was that way until I realize first step was reconcile myself with myself.
And then the script turned into a new narrative style. Just different. Growing and learning until stop breathing...
Thanks!05/01/2017 #14 Max🐝 J. Carter#13 Thank you @Mamen 🐝 Delgado. As we go we all share in refining that narrative as we contribute our thoughts and our dreams for humanity and how we might get there and what we can do in the now to build towards it.
In this global discussion of these ideas it gives us the opportunity to see how we might act locally to take the narrative we create here and live it and make part of our human history that we write each day.
Use your voice and add to the story of us, the human us.05/01/2017 #12 Max🐝 J. Carter#11 Good points and why I always take the time when the topic comes up to say the best way to keep it cool is to keep it about the what and set passion aside for the discussion in comments.
Even in disagreement it is always the cooler heads that prevail.
It's also where using set up phrases such as "I think" "I feel" and "in my opinion" become important not only to use but to recognize the use of when determining the response or if one is even needed.05/01/2017 #11 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#9 #10 Wow.... Now these two comments prove that something special is occurring.
We don't even have to get along. Just respect that we all belong.
In all honesty, I think a bit of the discord is because we all actually care deeply about the future of beBee.
And caring sometimes means inadvertently not realizing the line between stating our own opinion and trying to get someone else to pledge allegiance to our opinion. If it is a good opinion or idea and you state it clearly enough times - it will sink in to those minds where it can do some good.05/01/2017 #7 Max🐝 J. Carter#5 David I was shocked because of those blunt opinions I am infamous for.:) haha
I wrote that post right after I read the announcement which was humbling. I also wanted to make sure I gave myself a reminder to remain humble. Get ahead of my foolishness before it shows up or at least try to,.
Thank you David05/01/2017 #5 David B. GrinbergMax, congratulations on your ambassadorship. I must admit I was a bit surprised. Nevertheless, I have always admired your prolific writing and blunt opinions -- even when I disagreed with you. So how does this square with your other post about being humble? Just wondering. Thanks.🐝🐝✌️️🇺🇸05/01/2017 #4 Max🐝 J. Carter#3 And it's that word respect I want to key in on Deb.
beBee isn't responsible for people showing respect fro themselves by showing respect for others. Something I have said several times over, no platform is responsible to play high school principal.
It falls upon the membership to put up with it or not and to call it our or not.
beBee give a great mechanism in the report abuse on the comment function to minimize this activity and create a safer feeling community where we can treat each other with respect even when we disagree we do the respectful thing and keep it to the what and avoid the who which often turns into shameful name calling.
As I hear it Javier mentioned that any Ambassador engaged in bullying of any kind will no longer be an Ambassador. One of the reasons I feel comfortable in being a Brand Ambassador for beBee is the no bullying tolerance.
Its'something several members of the community even buzzed about for a while. The community responding and saying "no we do not do that here."
That alone is the reason beBee will always see growth, it's in the way the membership creates a safe space and works to keep it that way.05/01/2017 #3 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI think one of the key reasons for the ultimate success of beBee is the recognition that the sky is the limit when their aren't imposed actions and goals. There are such a wide range of ambassadors writing and commenting and sharing along a multiplicity of styles and niches. Your message is an important one - to keep doing what isn't broken. Respect everyone. Collaborate to make a place in the virtual world where everyone feels that they can be exactly who they are and find like-spirited people. So very open-ended and filled with extreme potential.
Very exciting ride!

Again, I want to especially recognize those with whom I've closely interacted over the years here and elsewhere: @Neil Hughes @Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador @Jan 🐝 Barbosa @Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand Ambassador @Andrew Books. Thanks for all YOU do! The buzz is growing louder...

I'm starting to have improper thoughts regarding Bob Dylan. So, I'm making it your responsibility to keep me out of trouble. I don't know what I'll do if you're successful in your campaign to have him knighted?28/10/2016 #46 Randy Keho#16 I'm anxiously awaiting, Javier. And don't think I didn't notice the flood of Russian buzzes you shared this morning. I especially liked the one that was prefaced in English, but the story was all in Russian. Something about LinkedIn being banned in Russia. Is beBee next?28/10/2016 #45 Randy KehoFloridians are preparing for the annual arrival of the snowbirds, much like they do for a hurricane. Before long, they'll be Canadian droppings blanketing both coasts. And, I'm not talking about those left by the geese.

It is vastly popular in fine dining establishments serving Louisiana roadkill. While rare, it is easily learned when accompanied by copious quantities of distilled beverages. (kidding, I think it's English, although I can't be 100% sure)28/10/2016 #40 Paul Frank GilbertYou know ... this is EXACTLY why I came here ... open discussion without all the "I am deeply offended" BS. Keep it up and I may just relax enough myself to contribute to this near utopian openness of minds. Sarcasm, humor, ideas ... this is how a digital community should be, hell this is how the world should be! Just give me a dram or two of single malt and lets talk!!28/10/2016 #39 Mohammed A. JawadAha...How sometimes something fumes and transform humans into nuts. It is understandable how someone can become annoyed when things pop, with strangeness, giving a jolt and leaving traces of confusion. Yet, with sheer frankness and boldness, you took an initiative to express all that as you felt.
Truly, how oftentimes we find people hemming twisted thoughts, with blurring lingo and adding mingled feelings as if they are drifting in the air or flying in the waters. Now and then, they keep snatching ideas from their own virtual castles and create chaos and devise theories of complexities. Reading them or gauging their writings can wobble your mind...mingled realities can only produce mingled inspiration. ..or turn you nuts because you cannot delve into their abstract content and have a glimpse of shapeless empery of chaotic scribbling.
Randy relish your post and be a cheery ambassador! :)

Comments02/10/2016 #81 AnonymousI'm still playing catch up and was on my holidays when this was published, but the points are well made about the differences between ambassador and influencer and the facts about the program, if you really like something you are going to engage and participate in highlighting the product or brand...you only reap what you sow, and the seeds of beBee must be sown far and wide for it to compete and be successful...very well explained @John White, MBA27/09/2016 #76 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman#40 @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD contacted me is taking a break from beBee due to her friend that is extremely ill and other circumstances. Those of you that are close to Mags can reach her on her Twitter account. cc @Pamela 🐝 Williams @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher @Donna-Luisa Eversley @Ali Anani "@Paul "Pablo" Croubalian @Deb 🐝 Helfrich @debasish majumder26/09/2016 #73 Lisa 🐝 GallagherThanks for taking the time to write this @John White, MBA, you laid out the facts of the program nicely. We are not influencers and as @Dean Owen noted, we also are not responsible for managing problems people encounter on their posts. Isn't there abuse@beBee.com and support@beBee.com if people have issues? I for one, do not feel I am any better than anyone on this platform and I have much respect for all the bee's I interact with. There are so many wonderfully talented people on beBee and I'm doing today what I've done since I began on this platform- promoting as much as I can because I want to see beBee succeed and it's never been about me. Javier built a great team in Spain first and now with you John, and @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood working hard in the US to help beBee grow, well I see this as a win/win.. as I said, many great people here, yourself included.

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 🐝 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 🐝 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!

- 05/08/2016Congratulations to new beBee Brand Ambassador Jim Murray! Will you be next?
Comments06/08/2016 #9 David B. 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.
