- Producer28/10/2017Please Don't Clog Up Hives with Irrelevant Contents!I am not the only one bothered by sharing contents to hives without considering the basic purpose of each hive. I'll give you one example. The Engineers and Technicians hive is the engineering hive which purpose is to connect with people...
Comments29/10/2017 #25 Lada 🏡 Prkic#16 I like your logic, Preston. I write mainly on subjects related to construction and geometry. At the beginning of my blogging journey on beBee, I wrote about my fears of writing as a beginner blogger. Besides, I have several posts on some issues related to beBee.
I usually post in one of the generic hives, like beBee in English, and in some specific industry-oriented hives.28/10/2017 #22 Phil Friedman#11 Zacharias, it is true that, as you say, "Some hives seem a bit generic though so they attract general content...." But understand that neither @Lada 🏡 Prkic, nor @Jim Murray, nor I am arguing that all hives should be topic-specific or topic-filtered. There are a number of "general" hives, such as English on beBee and beBee on beBee, which are intended to be quite general catches for an open variety of topics. And nobody is saying such "general" hives should be eliminated. I bet, however, that if you created a hive titled "Like the Everything Bagel Hive" or some such, it would not achieve a large membership because people would quickly learn that it was responsible for a mish-mash of posts on all manner of topics to appear in one's feed. It would be like you and I trying to discuss AI or AU-I with each other and being repeatedly interrupted every minute or so by someone talking about picking the best hair mousse or the most effective hemorrhoid preparations.28/10/2017 #20 Lada 🏡 Prkic#15 Yes Jim, it's sad to explain again and again the same rules of sharing to hives. But it's the human nature. Self-control is the hardest thing we have to learn. I agree with what you said about moderation and attracting groups to this platform, especially industry-oriented groups.28/10/2017 #19 Lada 🏡 Prkic#14 #18 Phil, I was just about to find the post you have mentioned because I remembered it had one of the most dramatic comment threads. Several commenters on this thread are no longer on beBee.
Almost all of the participants of the thread agreed about the necessity of providing the moderation tools inside the hives. But until it happened, it would not hurt from time to time to alert users to improper sharing.28/10/2017 #18 Phil FriedmanThank you, @Lada 🏡 Prkic, for raising this issue again. It cannot be overemphasized how critical it is to keep topic-specific hives clear of non-related material, if Affinity Networking is to function. Many years ago, I belonged to a couple of sports car racing clubs that met monthly. Imagine how pissed off most of the members of this clubs would have been if they showed up to a meeting, only to be met with a talk on hair styling or frog breeding. Cheers!28/10/2017 #17 Phil Friedman#16 True, Preston, but what you don’t touch on is the fact that joining a hive affects which posts appear in your general feed. Consequently, misposting to a topic-specific hive puts material you never asked to see in your feed — sometimes so much of it that you don’t even see posts which would be of real interest to you. And while your posting may be guided to do the right thing by the invisible hand of enlightened self-interest, a great many people will simply post Willy-billy to the largest or most conveniently placed (on the menu) hives. A situation that will only be corrected by giving hive admins the tools to stop repeated offenders from continuing to gum up the system.28/10/2017 #16 Preston 🐝 Vander VenGreat Buzz. I will admit that when first began writing in this Great Hive I made this mistake. Today, I look for Hives that match my theme or create a Hive. You will get better results because people are looking for you.
If we put our articles in Hive that is not our topic like @Lada 🏡 Prkic mentioned above, then we are now an advertisement. Trust me , people naturally don't like pushed advertisement. Yet, if we put our articles in the correct theme Hives, people our looking for YOU, like a book at a library.
For example, the majority of my buzzes have 3 themes. Most of the Hives I use have fewer than 100 followers. Yet, the benefits of this is I am the main "Influencers" of the Hive. This gives me a better chance of someone finding my material when searching that Hive, because I am NOT in competition with thousands of other bees.28/10/2017 #15 Jim MurrayI think it's kinda sad that you have to explain this to people. Surely anyone who can actually read cannot have missed any of the thousands of posts advocating just that. I agree with @Phil Friedman View moreI think it's kinda sad that you have to explain this to people. Surely anyone who can actually read cannot have missed any of the thousands of posts advocating just that. I agree with @Phil Friedman's comment that this will never really be anything that can be controlled until the individual Hive owners have the ability to keep their hives properly moderated. The added benefit to doing this would be the ability of beBee to attract disgruntled groups on LinkedIn, (of which there are many) where controls have been wrested away from group owners. Attracting groups to this platform will grow this site faster than any thousand individual efforts can. Close28/10/2017 #14 Phil Friedman#11 #12 #13 — Granted some of the mis- posting to topic-specific hives is due to laziness or inattention. But as @Lada 🏡 Prkicpoints out, a lot of it is due to a premeditated chase for readers — with the larger hives being the highest-value targets. It will not change until hive administrators have the tools to prevent repeat miscreants from posting to the hive in question. This is not an attack on Kumbaya; it is simply to recognize human nature. And it is critical, I submit, because the effectiveness of groups (hives) is a critical factor in the success of a platform such as LinkedIn or beBee.

Comments29/07/2017 #51 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#50 Good questions, @Aleta Curry , buzz @beBee and #buzzBeBee are functionally equivalent. They do exactly the same thing. Both trigger tweets on @beBee and its sister Twitter accounts.
It's pretty rare that a post will qualify immediately. A good idea may be to check the day after and the day after that. If it looks like it's trending to qualify, I'd do the #buzzBeBee thing.
We filter against duplicates. Those filters aren't perfect but still.29/07/2017 #50 Aleta CurryHere's my problem...okay, scratch that, here's one of my problems (I've got so many).
1. I don't really know the difference between buzz @beeBee and #beBee, that is, when would I use one rather than the other?
2. Sometimes (often?) my articles don't qualify for the tags right away, but will in a few days or even a few weeks later.
3. By the time that happens, I can't remember if I've already 'shared' the Tweet to Buzz or not.
4. In a similar vein, I often forget to see how my articles are doing and if qualified, share the Tweet to Buzz.22/07/2017 #46 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#44 You aren't alone, @Aleta Curry. Many people forget or, worse, use buzz@beBee without a space as if it's an email address. That why I added a search function for #buzzBeBee
Just use that hashtag in a twitter share to let beBee know your post qualifies for promotion (20 relevants AND 5 comments)22/07/2017 #44 Aleta Curry1. Messrs Flesch and Kincaid should be shot.

2. 'Tip for Mafiosi: The best place to hide a body is on line 6 of a 12-line blog post paragraph.'
That's really funny, Phil. Ah yes, the mobile phone. Wrecking the English language for good.

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.

About ambassadors and their role: You summed it up perfectly. We became ambassadors because we LIKE helping other Bees find their wings. NOT the other way around. Javier and Juan decide who becomes an ambassador and who remains an ambassador.

Comments09/02/2017 #76 Jared 🐝 Wiese#71 I will agree that we need better controls on the language of posts and hives to which we affine.
I just emailed Fede:
"Today Javier shared a post called 'beBee em Português' in hive 'beBee em Português' to 'Profissionais Administrativos'.
Because I am following Javier, I saw all that.
Please have a way in the new UI to choose what languages we want to see or not - in both posts and hives (posts shared to hives)."
Today, to de-pollinate and not lose Javier, I had to Mute the Hive and/or Post.09/02/2017 #75 Jared 🐝 Wiese#72 I can't believe I missed this part:
"Report inappropriate comments:
We know that at times a very small number of members can tarnish the experience for our broader community by posting inappropriate comments. While we monitor for these types of comments and work directly with members, you can also flag and hide abusive or offensive comments made on any article or post:
Click the “More” icon on the top right of a comment.
Click “Report” to report the comment.
In the pop-up window, tell us more about why you chose to report the comment."
I know you disagree, Phil. Yet I still believe - and am allowed to write - this is another good reason that we have "-1" on beBee. It can help encourage the commenter to have more appropriate comments.
Sure, some are open and courageous enough to debate openly. Some are not. I am trying to be courageous here, now. I wonder if I will get +1, -1 or nothing because others have given up on the direction of these comments?
Some people prefer to vote on comments, anonymously. Should everyone in the US who votes be forced to openly state who they voted for in an election?
Perhaps +1/-1 is voting that could be looked at as a way to help the commenter understand how their comment was received. Or it could be looked at as an annoyance that the commenter does not get to refute. Two sides of the same coin.
If people against the "-1" have made their point well enough, beBee has already said they are considering all options.09/02/2017 #73 Jared 🐝 Wiese#71 I see your point. I might add:
I had been in beBee in English for a long time. I built up many followers. I even shared posts there. All good.
Now, however, I see way too many posts about subjects I care no longer. I wish to de-pollinate for a while or even permanently and see what my followers share as sufficient. While perhaps in purgatory-to use your old testament reference - I do not believe I should be in hell forever.
Just like the Lumpy Kingdom is giving the on/off switch to comments. More choice.09/02/2017 #72 Jared 🐝 WieseThis just in from the Lumpy Kingdom blog:
"We continue to encourage two-way conversations on LinkedIn, and for many members who publish, comments are a great way to start discussions and can lead to broader reach.
At the same time, we want to give you greater choice in the types of conversations you have on LinkedIn."09/02/2017 #71 Phil Friedman#70 I have to disagree. If a hive is designated as "beBee in English", I think when one joins the hive, one reasonably expects to see a general stream of posts on a wide range of topics being posted in English. Just as someone who joins beBee in Spanish expects the same, except that the posts will be in Spanish. And so on. I don't think the problem is solved by "de-pollinating" but by enabling a practical system for language filtering those hives that declare themselves for a particular language. And similar for those hives that declare themselves devoted to a particular defined topic area.06/02/2017 #69 Phil Friedman#68 That, Jared, is to answer a question with a question. But never mind, the answer to your question is no. It is simply an inappropriate posting because the Hive is "beBee in English". It is not an issue over one instance, but becomes one if it happens over and over again. Because then a member of a hive that is for English gets Portuguese post in their feed too often.04/02/2017 #59 Gerald HechtOverall, this little primer demonstrates the extreme ease and user friendly priority for completing simple tasks --in this case, freeing oneself from the world's most annoying fake shaman/dude/ministry founder (no, not L. Ron Hubbard --he was much more user friendly --he simply died), or stalker, etc..04/02/2017 #58 Gerald Hecht#55 @John Vaughan I understand (I think) the +/- thingies...however the koan that is built into the colony and all of its dynamics is the mystique which surrounds the "Relevant"!
An exploding (effectively marketed defective/deadly product), shrapnel spewing Takada airbag in my face is an event that I would (however briefly) definitely consider "RELEVANT".
I worry, however, "that my meaning may be lost or misconstrued"...
... I, most likely would not be using the "relevant" as a "like" for one of Paul Simon's storied "50 ways to lose your lover".04/02/2017 #54 Phil Friedman#47 John, the words you quote say it all. IMO. "Do you ever reflect on why you got a "-1"? " The anonymous +/- check system is seen as a way for people to "rate" comments -- with the clear underlying assumption that such rating has value.
But the idea of such a rating system is antithetical to the policy of "openness" espoused by beBee ownership and management. And to my mind, is rightfully seen as a gaming gimmick to encourage point-and-click voting. People vote with what they read, and share, and judge relevant, and with their comments. But that all takes a modicum effort and requires one to at least stand by for one's actions in those areas.
The + click is used by many as a quick and convenient way to acknowledge a comment. But cannot fathom what the value of the negative check is supposed to be. Useful for raising an anonymous mob of disapprovers? A vehicle for someone to express displeasure without have to explain in any way? However you slice and dice it, the negative check mark gets one from me. Cheers!

- 06/11/2016Just a quick tip.... @Irene Hackett noticed on Friday night that the Google Chrome browser has a nifty little "Translate this page" button that automatically appears if you go to a buzz not in your selected native language. The options link allows you to pick and chose the source language and translation language. I did most of my browsing in Firefox, but this lovely little button might change my habits! There is some great content on beBee outside of English... and technology is making it easy for us to broaden our perspectives!
Comments06/11/2016 #4 Charles David UpchurchThanks for this buzz, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. You have confirmed what I wrote about in this August, 2015 article, over on LinkedIn.
I think it was just before we "met" as fellow LinkedIn UNfluencers(TM), Deb. Do you mind if I use the image you provided here (with credit to you) to update that old article?06/11/2016 #3 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#2 I'd been copying and pasting from firefox this whole time.... and I probably still will when I am not pressed for time, as doing it chuck by chunk and seeing the translation side by side is improving my languages, whereas just changing the whole page means I don't get to learn anything.06/11/2016 #2 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsThanks Deb. When I moved to Chrome a couple months ago I noticed that option. I also found out that sometimes the pop up does not appear, but there is a little icon in the address bar on the far right that is the translate option. Since I only used this while on beBee I thought it was beBee doing it for a while until I went offsite and it appeared. See how untech savvy I am?

Comments26/10/2016 #45 Ben PintoG R E A T P O S T. Over at the Dark Side, the 'Great Post' that was sent as a private message and was offered as another way to interact with the writer, was nothing more than an engagement tool in and of itself. People still had the option to add the type of comments that you crave. People had the option of commenting directly to the post with two words like 'great post.' There was introduced a third option and that was an auto generated private message that said 'great post.' It was meant to encourage the author to answer that with a message back asking for comments to please be added directly to the article instead of 'back channel.' This created another form of engagement getting people to use the messaging system. Another answer that was used by the blogger was "which post are you referring to?" Eventually they added the actual article information to the auto-response and it quickly went bye-bye.
They are now offering an auto-message to thank those that have checked off on one's skills, but thanking you for only one of them. This generates, hopefully, a response of 'but I did all of them for you...'26/10/2016 #42 Richard BuseMany decades ago most of the great big city daily newspapers had columnists who regularly PO'd people. At best, those columnists managed to shift public opinion. At worst, they usually got people to think about why they loved or loathed the particular piece they were reading. Too often there's a throw-away nature to online discourse. "Great Post" is not a thoughtful comment, nor are quickly-written posts that do not rise above name-calling.26/10/2016 #37 Phil Friedman#36 well, Tony, truth be told, I get Jim to ghost all my stuff --- at least the pieces that piss off a lot of people. :-) Seriously, you could do a lot worse than use Jim as a blogging guide, because he has mastered the art of perking reader interest, while getting people to love him. Well, most people, anyway.25/10/2016 #35 Tony 🐝 Rossi#27 I feel like there's a snarky comment about pollination ready here, but I just can't find it.... Either way, I'm convinced your plan is working; this series, your broader effort, makes writing and online publishing accessible and less intimidating to the audience at large. Keep it up, sir, we'll follow your lead!24/10/2016 #30 John Rylance"Great post" can be viewed as damming with faint praise ( average, mediocre) Mind you finding an alternative is fraught with difficulties. Here are a few to precede post. Superdoopah, amazing, mind-blowing, tantalising, and many others all needing clarification. The crux is clarity of view/comment.
One final thought perhaps a current short comment would be "This post is buzzing" That would set people thinking, it's more active than the "bumbling" Great Post"

Comments27/02/2017 #6 Jared 🐝 Wiese#5 Hi @Emily🐝 Bee. Good to read from you ;) Like your new picture and name!
Yes, I've been finding the views and followers on LI a bit all over the place. Some are against BB, some are feeling the urge with the new LI interface. Some are open.
Comes down to content and engagement - on any platform, IMO :) Have both and you will be followed ;)

It’s about time someone came up with a list like this and who better than a total smart-spiracle like me eh?...
Comments27/02/2017 #56 Jim AbleHey, watch it there, Bro Bo, when you talk about bee-in a ZorroBee. That characterization is already taken. But to compensate you for your disappointment, I am sharing this piece to my network and the maximum number of hives allowed. Of course, it remains to be see whether that association helps you on beBee or becomes the kiss death, hoisted on your own petard. https://www.bebee.com/@jim-able23/10/2016 #45 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsCouldn't stop myself, had to laugh. Then I questioned; Why stop myself, it's funny! Thanks for the grins this morning Michael!

I hope you have an opportunity to take a look at The Daily Chalkboard hive sometime. It's the "honey" I enjoy spreading more than any other on this new affinity social network.06/09/2016 #40 Mohammad Azam Khan#35 Short of that, and when required, beBee has the honey and the buzz and boBee and whatnot is not available, it's just that @Dean Owen is possibly looking for a catchy phrase for the comments. Bees communication, there's the waggle bee dance or waggle dance or waggle in short.
- Producer14/09/2016Tools to Remember Web Sites (and Buzz/Honey!)Ever run across a great web site and realize later you wish you'd saved a link to it? Or, worse, you read something in it that finally hit you and now you want to find that again? Don't you wish you had that "in your pocket" for quick reference?...
Comments20/10/2016 #33 Jared 🐝 WieseEver wonder how to Pocket (save) a Buzz (share)? Not so easy, is it?
Here are the quick steps:
1) Share the Buzz to Twitter (with the sideways V),
2) Copy the 2nd line of the tweet from "https" until the first set of numbers,
3) Cancel the Tweet,
4) Add to Pocket!
For example, for the tweet:
"This image has been shared in one of the hives on beBee
You would grab just:
Then open Pocket, click "+" if it does not ask to add.
This should work on phones or PCs!14/10/2016 #31 Jared 🐝 Wiese#30 Thanks for the share, Lisa!
I don't work with Chromebooks, but some research showed "At the bottom or side of your screen, you'll see a row of apps, called the shelf, and your account picture. You can change which apps are included and bookmark webpages."
It is available from the Chrome Web Store and should show you on the far right of the screen if it is compatible [with Chromebook].
What I do and suggest is adding it to the Chrome browser as an Extension. Then you will see the Pocket symbol in the upper-right of your browser and when on a site to remember, just click the symbol and it lights up red.
If this all works, you click - not right-click - the Pocket button on the toolbar, as shown in the first picture above.
The right-clicking is another method, once it is installed. You do that anywhere on the page - link or not.
On my android phone it is a share with the tilted "V".14/10/2016 #30 Lisa 🐝 GallagherFound it @Jared 🐝 Wiese, thanks. I have pocket on my Chrome Book and for some reason it doesn't appear in the box when I right click. Maybe I need to reboot because I just added pocket from the Webstore. Under tools, I found add to shelf, do you know what that is?05/10/2016 #27 Jared 🐝 Wiese@Charles David Upchurch and I have been testing this with the app / mobile. Sharing to Pocket does not work. On smartphones, you can run your Chrome or Firefox browser in Desktop mode, install the Pocket app, then you can SHARE to pocket for any honey or buzz... and never lose it!
I ask myself if I might like to see this again, read it more fully, etc. Indispensable!
With all the honey and buzz that hits our feeds, it is easy to lose track of something you want to see again!26/09/2016 #25 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorThese are great suggestions. I just started using Pocket, which seems to be super easy. I also save posts I want to keep in my storage hive "a Bees Reads". Grocery lists, etc. I keep in the memo app in my phone or I write it down on a memo pad. I always have my phone with me and sometimes forget my written list! Reeeeely! This is great "stuff" - thank you for sharing.21/09/2016 #23 Henrí GalvãoI love Pocket, but I never thought about using it for continuous reference. Thanks for the idea! As for Evernote, I hear so many people say great things about it. I've never tried it, though, since I already use RememberTheMilk for task management, and it serves me well (although apparently Evernote is much broader than that)
Comments20/10/2016 #5 Harvey Lloyd#4 Yes, it emanates from that series. We went through an exercise with our team a few years back by actually drawing the circle separated by an inner circle. The inner circle was control and the outer was influence. We made the control circle smaller. Much to my amusement folks wanted a larger circle for control. My favorite discussion was over parenting. Parents put their teenage children inside the circle of control. When we questioned their placement they stated,"But i have to be in control I am their parent!" That discussion was both enlightening and sobering for a few. Some reluctantly moved the children to influence. It was a fun experience and opened up a dialogue about separating the two areas.
