Comments28/04/2017 #9 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianShared to the beBee Cheat Sheet Hive where we collect all helpful posts like this one.
About your statement re: Ambassadors and their job description. That's simple. We don't have one. We were selected because we promote beBee and help other Bees find their footing (wings?). Basically, we just keep doing what we did in the first place.
If the Bees-in-Chief take exception to what we do, they can delist us. It's their brand. It's their choice.
We are not told what to do or when to do it. We may get an email pointing out a particularly good post. We can support it or not as we see fit. I tweet some out, I ignore others. At that point, it's my brand, my choice.
The only "special" thing about Ambassadors that I can think of has nothing to do with beBee.
I created a Twitter account, @beBeeEmbassy where I collect and tweet Ambassadors' posts. It's just my way of furthering the cause using some excess capacity at https://www.myTweetPack.com
The worst thing about being an ambassador is having to turn the other cheek when some T$%*$^*&% starts screaming, "BIAS!!!"
To them I'd like to say . . .
Are ambassadors biased? Really? You need to point it out? No poop, Sherlock. Of course, we're biased...if we didn't like and support beBee they wouldn't want us as ambassadors and we wouldn't want to be their ambassadors.

I have no clue if my verbs were in the proper order... but hopefully people understood what I was trying to convey. It's very interesting to read articles from other cultures. I find Spanish people are very animated with their writing and I love it. I need to read more. My Spanish is limited too, Chica! So let me just say Hola for now LOL.19/04/2017 #21 Jerry FletcherI salute you Donna-Luisa. As a child, my grandmother spoke German. My mother and I still share a few phrases. I learned enough Korean to make friends in that language when I returned to the USA. I used my High-school French in Paris for a few weeks and found the gratitude for the attempt overwhelming. I will continue to learn more of Spanish and French as well as the language wherever I find myself in the world.

A couple of years ago I visited a vendor partner in Germany. I was there for meetings and an educational summit. There were attendees from many countries and I particularly loved being immersed in the different languages. I took three years of Latin in high school (many moons ago) and a year of Spanish in both high school and college. I know bits and pieces of German and Czech from working with our partners there but would love to really learn the languages. Kudos to you for climbing the wall.

Comments15/04/2017 #21 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador@Netta Virtanena thanks ,my next post will show that the outreach has trippled over the last 30 days means bebee is doing better and better. the Insights led me to diversify on several other plateforms offering business editions. I will monitor the ROI.10/04/2017 #18 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#15 The problem with that approach is that you can only look at your own anti-spam measures, and they don't matter.
What Twitter decides is spam is locked. And they aren't telling what that might be. You need to infer it.
That actually makes sense. If they say what they are looking to block, it's easier to get around it. They also add new stuff and change old stuff all the time.
I had much trouble inferring this latest thing because it only makes sense on the surface. It actually hurts user engagement and may even affect people who click on share to twitter buttons often.
As they have done in the past, Twitter will no doubt eventually see that their good idea is badly implemented. They will adjust accordingly.
Until then, be careful10/04/2017 #17 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#16 No, my account is big and busy enough that there's enough engagement to mark it as non-spam. The new account, @beBeeEmbassy is tiny. It had its tokens restricted to read-only four times before I finally got to talk to someone at Twitter.
The anti-spam ignores what you program and why, it just looks at what tweets and how people respond to those tweets. It seems to trigger lockdown at about 20 daily mentions IF those mentions are not engaged with.
Only write-functions are considered here.
Their basic idea is good, but the implementation is bizarre. You know what they say about the Road to Hell being paved with Good Intentions.
I instituted a non-mention policy on myTweetPack to protect user accounts. Once Twitter comes to its senses, it will be easy to remove.It's only one line of code.
They started on little accounts and are moving up. Right now I'm hearing issues on Twitter Developer chatter about 10,000 follower accounts getting locked for "excessive @mentions."
Strange stuff Twitter is smoking10/04/2017 #15 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#14 I read your posts about that, so i took the initiative to study in depth all anti-span factors and parameter settings, i retrieve all API triggered LOOPS to go under the radars. The great thing with people like twitter and linkedin is that you can always think two steps ahead of the because they fell into the reactive pattern instead of the proactive &innovative one. It is a matter of time hackers/ad spammers find the worm hole and transform it into a Quazar !!! HAHAHAHA...unless someone with bad intentions release the trick on video with V for vendetta mask on a youtube video going viral.....but that is also classified. : )10/04/2017 #13 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#10 one great example, we like the earth magnetic fields because it protect the entire planet from solar radiations...on the other hand the same phenomenon attracts meteorites to plunge on the planet, small ones...and big ones.
You cannot get YIN without the YANG !
Wow...i am hiiiiigh this monday morning....LOL.10/04/2017 #12 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#9 Thanks @Jan 🐝 Barbosa brand24 is quite cool and instructive, but not proactive. Unlike SMA web-servers built on Opensource that can really interact One to One with each stakeholders, taking in account predictive workflows and scenari of action plan..like if the user does this, then the AI module does that ( event 1 triggers event 2), on and on, till you get the user into every and each cognitive stage and re-action planning. That is what i am working on as an ''innovative'' brand ambassador.
Interacting with 2, 100 000, 11M+, 300M+, 2.8B+ users...in fact the capabilities are uncapped by design, which will never be the LinkedIn case, it is way (bigdata) too late for them to migrate.
I would add, that with the change of ownership, that will never be again the case. Users serve LinkedIn goals, not the other way around.
Everything that goes up..goes down...it is a matter of time.10/04/2017 #11 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#9 I am only a fisherman with his boat collecting data and marking down on a Map where do the fish 1)live 2)eat 3)shelter 4)reproduce 5)hunt 6)migrate 7)interact... like in the dark ages...i am a map builder...very useful to pilgrims & explorer...that is just a small contribution to pay back...for thanking all bees and team for propelling my passions and pro/perso brand forward.

- Producer02/04/2017Why It's Not Professional To Openly Dis Other Networks and People I recently stumbled upon a blog which was written on another network I won't mention. This blog mentioned beBee and it's CEO, Javier. The blog appeared defamatory in nature but I would assume it could be said, it was just the 'opinion' of the...
Comments04/04/2017 #128 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#127 Linkedin has been around since 2003 and marketing was different back then. They also did not have the competition that's out there now. So, if some view Ambassadors as cheerleaders for beBee, that's OK. We want to see beBee succeed and we are utilizing tools to help us do that. Linkedin has also charged and made a lot of money from Premium users, beBee is not doing that.
As Javier wrote, don't put all your eggs in one basket- which means utilize other networks as well if you are trying to brand yourself or increase your audience for the sake of marketing eg.
What's funny (not in a haha type of way) is the fact that I never knocked or mentioned Linkedin's name in this article. It's sad that it turned into a back and forth about Linkedin, & others who don't care for beBee instead of staying focused on my message. I have no personal issues with Linkedin, still have friends there that I keep in contact with. Both networks differ yet have a lot to offer. I know people who hate facebook and quit using it... but there are many who enjoy it too. It's all a matter of personal preference Robert. I've been using social networking platforms since the late 90's... IRC was the first.. we were using Windows 3.11 then and I like what I'm seeing with beBee, so call me a cheerleader... I just need to run out and get my uniform with a 'Bee" on it ;-) LOL04/04/2017 #126 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#125 Thank you @Jim Murray for explaining the actions/inactions of Linkedin. Yes, the accusations he made about beBee were false. Thank you for explaining and the warning RE: The Pulse. They run a tight ship on this site and that's why they are retaining their users because they do care!04/04/2017 #125 Jim MurrayI saw that article. It sounded more like a temper tantrum than anything else. Every accusation was bullshit. He was just trying to get back at Javier for actually doing the right thing. Whenever you see something like this, you have to go right back to the beginning and if you do that you can piece together the truth. I write a lot of articles dissing LinkedIn. So do a lot of people I know. But all of us felt totally justified in doing that, because their actions, or inactions, directly affecting our networks and constituted broken promises and definoitely violations of trust. We were sold a bill of goods and we were pissed about it. The writing I am doing right now is more by way of an explanation and a warning to those who continue to post on Pulse and are wondering why their reach is virtually non-existent. It's not dissing to criticize a system that fails its users. It's a public service. I would do the same thing to beBee if they ever started failing us. Fortunetely this site is run by people who actually care about their users.03/04/2017 #122 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#121 @Robert Bacal Believe it or not I care about this network/platform and that's my bottom line. He chose to write an article that targeted the CEO of this platform and made a false accusation about the Ambassadors. How others choose to respond to this buzz is also their choice. Maybe he should have been a bit more careful in his own choice of words.
My buzz was not written with ill intent unlike his. As you can see here and on other buzzes, they take on a life of their own with comments. By tagging others as you did is also egging people on. I'm not going to keep trying to defend what I wrote. I know what my intentions were, they were not ill intentions and that's all I have to say about it :)03/04/2017 #120 Susan 🐝 Rooks#114 OMG, @Aleta Curry! What a rotten Monday you had last week! Is your husband really OK?
What an interesting thread this has been -- blocking @Javier 🐝 beBee, professionals (???) dissing other professionals, and yet coming together here as a community. My head's spinning . . . but I'm smiling, too.
Make this Monday a great one, everyone!03/04/2017 #117 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#114 You can add me to your Christmas card list @Aleta Curry LOL. Ouch, sounds like your week is off to a stressful beginning. I'm sorry that happened to your husband but very glad to hear he didn't get hurt, that could have been a serious accident.
I just noticed @Javier 🐝 beBee's comment about being blocked too... did we read that right? YOU? No way?!! Were you being too nice? LOL... agree, I've never seen you being rude. Direct, yes.. rude NO. Hmm maybe Aleta is onto something with MS.
Wishing you a better week Aleta!03/04/2017 #114 Aleta Curry#73 Haven't seen it. In my cave in the dark and will remain that way for the foreseeable future. We're producing the Sydney Antiques Fair this weekend and someone's just rung to say they're not coming due to the Queensland flooding. Someone phoned yesterday to say they weren't coming because they were too rushed. Needless to say, that someone's being dropped from my Christmas Card list.
I've just gotten an email from the venue saying their Risk Dept. want additional insurance.
Husband hit himself in the chest with an electric drill. (It hurt, but he's fine.)
It's only Monday, folks.
These are real problems. Who said what when where and how about whom on a social network? - meh!
It's a great post, though, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, very sensible and sound.03/04/2017 #113 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#111 Hi @Aleta Curry, yes Federico has always been quick to respond along with others too. So many of us began with beBee when it was new to the US Market and everyone has benefited from the quick response rate. I think what some people forget is that they are human and can't 'fix' every human issue on the platform. We are all supposed to be adults and work through things together as we would if working as a large team at our workplace. And, if issues seem unresolvable, it's always been my thought that it's just time to move on instead of badgering others.
I've never used Quora but that's nice to hear too! Nice to hear from you, thanks!03/04/2017 #111 Aleta Curry#105 Oh hear, hear. I haven't waded through all 110 comments yet, but this one caught my eye because I've said the same thing. beBee has a *very* responsive C-Suite and as for poor @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín View more#105 Oh hear, hear. I haven't waded through all 110 comments yet, but this one caught my eye because I've said the same thing. beBee has a *very* responsive C-Suite and as for poor @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín, he really goes above and beyond the call of duty, and it would serve us right if he up and quit. (Having said that, please don't!)
Even given the fact that there are many more users in other platforms, this team is great! I haven't made a study, but my guess would be that there's a better response rate per capita here than anywhere else. (Although some of the people over at Quora are pretty responsive as well, I must say.) Close03/04/2017 #110 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#107 Great Ted talk by Ms. Duckworth @Milos Djukic. Maybe that's what helped my children, they both had grit. Their parents have grit too. We've faced many obstacles in life (even I was bullied as a teen), so common when in HS. Life can be tough on many, some we never hear about. It's how we rebound after the fact that helps us to move forward in life. Attacking someone is never the best defense.
This buzz was not an attack on the person that has been mentioned (I'm sure you already understand that Milos). If I wanted to attack him I would have mentioned his name, added a link to his blog, tagged people on LI on his blog etc... but it's good to use certain situations as larger example of what our own retributions may be if we continue on a path of trying to self-destruct others. Thanks for your astute comments Milos, highly appreciated!

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.

Comments26/04/2017 #24 Phil Friedman#23 Hmm... with all due respect, commitment to what? I am certainly not an expert, but I have been active on social media for well over a decade, and one of the things I've learned is that being followed by or connected with, say, one of the LinkedIn LIONs, who follow tens of thousands of people leaves me and a lot of other people feeling ... well, nothing. Because I know that someone who follows 100,000 or 50,000 or even 25,000 people isn't reading or paying attention to very many if any of them.
On LI, being connected to a LION might be advantageous, doubtful but might, because theoretically if a LION like Jim Cody liked or shared a post of yours, it was distributed to all of that LION's 1st order connections. So the name of the game -- for a blogger or writer, anyway -- was reach. But if I look and see you that on beBee you are following me and, at the same time, I see you are following 24,999 other people, but are followed yourself by fewer than 10% of those, I am not sure what the point is --especially when you tag it to "commitment".
The is a corps of first-rate writers and bloggers on beBee who have contributed thousands of articles and posts which took, I guaranty, tens of thousands of hours in total to produce, and which form the content backbone of platforms like beBee and LinkedIn. I do not mean to be contentious here, but THAT, Michael, is what I think of as commitment. IMO. Cheers!26/04/2017 #22 Lisa 🐝 GallagherHoly crap @Michael Hrubos I had to look at your profile and you REALLY did follow over 25K people. I think you have us all beat! I think this is one the better articles I've read about the positive reasons to use beBee. For one, It's not redundant. "Even if you're allergic to bees," That was funny! You made a great argument and I must say, I agree with you!25/04/2017 #16 Phil FriedmanActually, quite a while ago I sent out an open invitation on LI for people to follow me. By LinkedIn's reported numbers, that invitation reached 19, 674, 356 and 1/2 people in my extended LI network. I didn't get many responses, though. What percentage responded to you by following you back? And did you do all that following manually or do you have a program to do it?18/03/2017 #13 Irene 🐝 Rodriguez EscolarBee? More like it looks wasp, well the detail is what counts. More than one will have it, under the clothes, ¡sure!, there is also makeup to hide it.

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 #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.14/02/2017 #22 Brian McKenzieWhere is the link to the "Report" guidelines? I am not an Ambassador, specifically because I don't nor won't filter my content. And an F-bomb is more than appropriate in my writing on several occassions - but if need be, I can open a can of Russian swear words that will make F*ck blush. If you believe that censorship and hiding behind the report button is "engagement" then unfollow me indeed, early - often - and twice on Holidays. Both the Nazis and Communists loved and endorsed censorxhip - you paint yourself in their company by deleting my content. (You with passive aggressive finger on the Report button know who you are)
- Producer12/01/2017Ambassadorship~ Do I Qualify?I am humbled by my recent designation as a beBee Brand Ambassador, but, philosophical musings began to arise- maybe I think too much; maybe not. I do accept it and if for any reason it is revoked in the future, I will not be bitter about that...
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. What a group duo here & all the Bee's that I met over the past year. beBee will continue to be very successful & has great spirit. Best regards, Bill Stankiewicz13/01/2017 #30 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.oh @Chas ✌️ Wyatt, the question is not 'do i qualify' but 'why do i qualify', we can give you 1000 reasons and more why you do. So enjoy being you. Enjoy beBee's journey.13/01/2017 #29 🐝 Fatima G. Williams@Chas ✌️ Wyatt Your straight-forward and down to earth attitude makes you a very special beBee and you contribute in your own unique way which make the experience even more special to us all.
