Comments26/10/2016 #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"24/10/2016 #27 Jim Murray#24 Thanks @Tony Rossi. I believe that people cut each other a good deal of slack. Because the majority of contribitors here and on LinkedIn, when it was worthwhile posting there, were non writers. But so were all the professional writers at one time. For non writer the comments they get are very important to them, because it gives them fresh perspectives on their work and that's the main think that helps them improve. I give out a lot of advice on writing here, because I want more good writers in the world. Period.24/10/2016 #25 AnonymousCan I say Great Advice? OK, I will get serious. I will chime in with @Franci Eugenia Hoffman and @Aurorasa Sima and @Pamela L. Williams. If there are reasons not to write a little 'meat' into the comment, it may be best to simply click the relevant button. The mature rebel in me, however, finds that so many 'rules' can be rather disturbing...just sayin! :-)24/10/2016 #24 Tony RossiWell you're clearly not full of it since so many of us made it to the end... Let's call it Superb Writing then, @Jim Murray!
This used to irritate me a ton, at least in the early years of writing on LI, because we non-writers really put ourselves out there to publish. "I'm glad you clicked the link to my post, but did you even read it?" swum frequently through my head. Great lesson, Jim; time to share with the Great Commenters. Lol24/10/2016 #21 Pamela L. WilliamsI have to go with Franci and Aurorasa for the most part, but then there are those times when I'm hearing my grandmother say; "if you can't say something nice, then shut-up". (Okay she was more blunt than other grandmothers) In all seriousness;
I couldn't even pretend to critique your writing skill, that would be idiocy on my part.
When you provide opinion pieces then I am of the mindset that you have the right to your opinion and I don't have to agree with you.
If I feel a post/buzz/honey deserves a bit more of My opinion I'll give it, but I don't believe in getting personal, calling names, or insulting. Critiquing does not mean talking down to someone. IMHO it involves, teaching, learning, discussing, and sharing ideas.
If the comment is insulting then it's a criticism, not a critique. Two totally different animals.
But Great Post Jim....Hey everyone else was doing it!24/10/2016 #19 Wayne YoshidaThanks Jim. I love your lunch story! Boinking the Relevant button.
As writers, I think writing stuff to get some engagement, reaction, like, dislike or -- conversation -- going is one of the best ways to see how people appreciate your stuff.
Transmitting one-way is - boring and without feedback.
Keep writing, your stuff always makes me smile, laugh, wince, or think.24/10/2016 #18 Aurorasa SimaNow that I see @Milos Djukic comment: Some of the posts are hard to understand for me. That might be because they are deeply scientific/intellectual or that I am not a native speaker.
I love them, I learn from them but I do not necessarily feel I can add to them, even less criticize them. I can´t speak for others but I could imagine that is one potential reason for "great post"

Bees communication, there's the waggle bee dance or waggle dance or waggle in short.06/09/2016 #34 Mohammad Azam Khan#14 When a honey bee stings a person, it cannot pull the barbed stinger back out. It leaves behind not only the stinger, but also part of its abdomen and digestive tract, plus muscles and nerves. This massive abdominal rupture kills the honey bee. Honey bees are the only species of bees to die after stinging.
- 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".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 HoffmanThese 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 Henri 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)16/09/2016 #19 Steven Brooks#9 A search feature for beBee?

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.

Comments07/10/2016 #17 Charles David Upchurch#7 @Nick Mlatchkov I go back and edit my long-form posts all the time. I'm guessing that you are referring to our current inability to edit short "update" buzzes.
While we cannot update quick buzzes, there are two workarounds.
1) For a short buzz that you can go back and edit, just create it in Producer (as if it was a longer buzz). I've seen you do exactly that, Nick.
2) instead of editing, create a new "replacement" buzz and then delete the original. The downside, there, is that if you don't replace the original buzz right away, you end up losing bee wisdom (all the comments) from the original buzz.07/10/2016 #15 Charles David Upchurch#5 Charlie wrote "Unfortunately, all of these editors are incapable of translating Word's extended formatting, to the point where I have to remember if and what was italicized."
I have found that I can compose in beBee Producer with very little hassle. When I hit a formatting glitch, I just hit enter to start a new paragraph at the point where I want my format change, then I apply the format, then I remove the paragraph break.
HELPFUL HINT FOR ANY ONLINE PUBLISHING PLATFORM: Compose (and format) your stuff offline, first, in Word or with a simpler (and free) text editor like Wordpad, Notepad, Text, or Office Write, then "SAVE AS" rich text format (that's a *.RTF file). After the simplified file is saved, you can re-open the RTF file and cut and paste into beBee, or LinkedIn, or WordPress without losing your formatting.02/10/2016 #9 Andrew PorterThe producer is quite sufficient for me but I'm not a professional writer, yes we would all like more tools but patience is a virtue....I'm sure the beBee team are working on improvements for the producer, we must remember that Rome wasn't built in a day and beBee is really still in it's infancy!02/10/2016 #8 Javier beBee#7 thanks @Nick Mlatchkov we will have to wait.

Wonder if @Pascal Derrien got those too or even knew I had shared. I add @ as suggested by beBeenomics but I think in a response that is not necessary. Lovely post this dear PPC...some awesome feedback to make beBeeland better! ;) I have been conditioned to receiving 200 plus emails a day (270 was the highest...a while ago..) so never gave tagging much thought...but i guess it can get aggravating for some! What did get my goat was seeing a newBee tagging another Bee on every new buzz without comment for a few days back then ;)..am not seeing that anymore thankfully!13/09/2016 #63 Robert Bacal#60 Thank @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian On thinking about this, a bit more, the flaws are with the notifications here (and similarly on LinkedIn) particularly with respect to NOT being notified of new material in hives here, and the crazy stuff LinkedIn pulled, making multi-tagging something people do to kludge around the limitations. I still do wonder, though about the risk of allowing more than x number of tags in terms of creating a DOS or attacking other users.
In any event, I think you covered it all pretty well in your post, though I'm not sure people read it before commenting.13/09/2016 #61 Phil Friedman#59 I agree, Paul. (Notice that I avoided, as you recommend, doubling the number of notifications by not using the @ feature.) but there is something deeper going on, as well. And it pertains to community. To say, " follow me and read what I publish, but NEVER intrude upon my space or time with your pissant invitation to look at what you publish" is a rejection of community and the kindness of reciprocation. I personally tolerate menu more tags, and hence notifications than I would otherwise, precisely because they come from people who follow and often read my bull chips. It's a matter of being willing to give (of your time and attention) in exchange for what you ask for. And if you don't, disconnect and don't expect anything. IMHO.13/09/2016 #60 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#53 LinkedIn's API was cut off a while ago. What's left is a tiny, very limited set of functions. You can automate status updates but that's about it.
I don't know how detailed beBee's API will be once it exists. It's usually a good idea to start small with an API, then add functions as the need arises. I doubt beBee will start off with a beast like Twitter's or the multiple Beasts that are Google13/09/2016 #59 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#57 re: "if someone says they don't want to be tagged and consider it a huge pain in the butt, unfollow them." Or, better yet don't tag them.
This post is not just about to tag or not to tag. It's more about limiting multiple notifications for a single event.13/09/2016 #58 Jim MurrayIt's become painfully obvious from reading this comment stream that there appears to be way too much tagging going on here in Buzzville.. I'm with Phil. I don't mind getting tagged on an article by the author or by one of the other Ambassadors who has something pertinent to say about beBee things. After that it's just a lot of spam. I don't tag many people at all, but maybe that's because I'm just a polite Canadian.13/09/2016 #57 Phil Friedman#55 yes, but then unfollowing someone prevents casually or accidentally tagging them as part of a list. So as I said earlier, if someone says they don't want to be tagged and consider it a huge pain in the butt, unfollow them. Case closed. Better than fitting them with cement overshoes. :-)13/09/2016 #55 Aurorasa Sima#48 I am under the impression that you can tag people if you follow them, even if they don´t follow you back. I tagged a few newBees like this.
And off I am from this post. It´s amazing how we few currently active members constantly seem to argue 4ever about simple things. Hopefully, we get that under control before we´re 150, 1500, 150000, 1500000000
Nobody tag me in this one. Please do not RSVP13/09/2016 #53 Robert Bacal@Paul "Pablo" Croubalian On a side note, I'm wondering if linkedin limits multiple tags. I know you are conversant with API's, so would it not be possible to automate a function that inserts, let's say 100 tags into multiple messages and drive targets nuts? Since Bebee doesn't have an open API (yet) it's moot in this discussion, but in your view is this a potential security issue? Or spam issue?13/09/2016 #52 Phil Friedman#43 Pablo, perhaps the matter can be put to rest. I promise to assure that I personally will never tag the person in question who objects so vehemently to being tagged. In fact, I do not follow that person, and I would be more than pleased to hear that he does not follow me. And as soon as a blocking function is available, I will be more than pleased to execute a block. Done deal. Now, if there are any others who will commit similarly, it seems a simple matter to assure that the complainant will not be troubled again. But I still don't see what this has to do with me tagging you or Donna-Luisa, or her tagging me, or Kevin @Kevin Pashuk tagging me, or @David B. Grinberg tagging me, which he does frequently and which I don't mind. Why should one person's wedgie dictate what other people do, as long as they leave him out of it?13/09/2016 #50 Phil Friedman#43 Pablo - I submit that "tagging" is not a matter for a general rule. If someone doesn't want to be tagged, then members of the community should respect that. But that persons preferences should not be imposed on everyone else. People who are comfortable both with tagging and being tagged should be entitled to do it. As long as it does not affect those who object to being the recipients of such tags. What is the freakin' problem here?13/09/2016 #49 Phil Friedman#48 That's a good question, Donna-Luisa, but isn't his complaint that you tagged him. Indeed, isn't his complaint that HE is being tagged by too many people? Which I doubt because I don't think there are that many masochistic users on the platform, who would stay connected for any length of time. Just sayin'. It's another straw man complaint, designed to stir mud up into the waters. Cheers!13/09/2016 #48 Donna-Luisa Eversley#45 I have checked and I don't understand how someone I unfollowed a long time ago is able to tag me... Will have to get it checked. Thanks @Phil Friedman was getting concerned a bit. No worries I'm listening to Reggae ..a little Bob Marley goes a long way....and Red Hot Chilli Peppers 😉13/09/2016 #46 Robert Bacal#43 @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian "I" see it as wasting MY time if I'm tagged. It's MY time. YOU nor anyone else gets to decide what is worth my time or not. I'm absolutely flabergasted by the attitude that it's OK to spam. Not to mention the implications for attacking someone online by constantly spam mentioning them. It's selfish, and arrogant to decide on MY behalf what I should be notified about. AND since there is almost NOTHING so important to me on social media that I fear "missing it", what really is being argued is whether it's ok to spam someone.13/09/2016 #45 Phil Friedman#44 Donna-Luisa, don't worry, be happy. If anyone aggressively objects to being tagged, simply un-follow that person, if you are following him. That way it will never happen again. Indeed, my recommendation is that as may people as possible un-follow anyone who aggressively and angrily objects to being tagged -- as most of the time it is an innocent infraction. For none of the people on this thread are intentional spammers, witness how earnestly everyone here is trying get to understand how everyone else feels about it.13/09/2016 #44 Donna-Luisa Eversley#41 Hey thanks @David B. Grinberg...this is social media, and as mentioned there are buttons if you don't want to communicate or see something. Seems someone keeps tagging me even when I'm in no way tagging them. Only saw this because of you, but observed a comment after yours with my name. Wonder if I'm being stalked by an online hate troll... In peace..cheer up troll ....love conquers all😉13/09/2016 #43 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#42 I don't think either David or Donna sees tagging as "wasting someone's time". Robert. Again, it's not a major deal when it's in a comments section.
I've been using Kevin Pashuk's workaround all day and it's easy, quick, and effective. When you hover over a notification, the link it points to is in the bottom left corner. It's small type, but legible.

One factor that I think you overlook -- or perhaps gloss over intentionally, because it is not something that falls within the range of a "tip" -- is that one of the ways to make other people want to move over to beBee is to make it a place where 1) outstanding content prevails (or at least holds it own), 2) affinity networking is a reality, not a pipe dream, and 3) the range of topics and areas of interest is sufficiently broad to ensure that everyone can find a niche form themselves, both in terms of reading and learning, and in terms of writing and exchanging ideas and opinions. One of the major mistakes made on "that other" platform was to tout the high quality of Influencer content, but in fact deliver mostly insipid drivel (the real variety, not the kind that @Kevin Pashuk attributes to himself). I truly hope that committed beBee bees will make the effort to develop and manage topic-filtered hives, and produce high quality content -- whatever that may be. As to my mind, that is the way beBee will rise to where it wants to bee. Cheers!

Comments02/09/2016 #32 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianMy web-app-with-no-name doesn't do much in the way of Twitter analytics. Twitter does that well enough on their own. My app is more of a super-scheduler with the ability to include supportive tweets between members and to build "click-to-tweet"links with images.
To access Twitter Analytics: Click on your profile picture on the far top right. Select "Analytics" from the drop down. The analytics page has 5 tabs, Home, Tweets, Audiences, Events, and More. There's plenty of info there.02/09/2016 #31 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#30 @Franci Eugenia Hoffman, I'm Tweeting you left and right, as well as others too. Am sure that this will increase your Twitter profile, and highly recommend a Twitter App that does auto statistics. @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian has one ~ Paul, could you please tell us details?31/08/2016 #29 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#25 Thank you so much, @Michael D. Davis, and I'll add that you are right ~ I have never done any synthetic 'marketing ploy' but for the Twitter Challenge I'm now in ~ referenced in this article. Explanation for why I have so many hits: I've been bedridden with a traumatic brain injury and dysautonomia for 10 years. Started with (1) a random car accident: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@margaret-aranda/the-car-accident-that-started-it-all and (2) here's why: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@margaret-aranda/distracted-driving-derails-an-innocent-doctor. I do my best to keep Positive & writing has been a fantastic outlet for me to increase awareness of many things. I am focusing on Caregiving presently, as many of us care for both our aging parents and children. Thank you so much for Stirring us Along, Michael ~ YOU ROCK!31/08/2016 #28 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#24 Encouraging all to Google their own names at least once every 3 months. Perfect Cool! And thank you for keeping us On Target (love "Three Ways to Google Yourself" ~I smell Honey!): Goole of my name, Dr Margaret Aranda:
(1) Google just "Dr Margaret Aranda": 49 of the first 59 entries are mine. (I feel embarrassed) (413K hits in 0.35 sec, just to document)
(2) Google #DrMargaretAranda: uhmmm. I guess no one has my name. Top 88 all mine (almost 9 pages)(101K hits in 0.53 sec)
(3) #25 Not sure - Google my blog? "Perseverance" puts me out somewhere after the top 50.
Great exercise, @Michael D. Davis & appreciate your very kind words and deeds here. You've put in tons of effort & I appreciate it!
~ 🎀mags (my beBee nickname)29/08/2016 #24 Michael D. DavisI believe this is what you were requesting @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD
A Google search for our name, which I actually did three ways just for fun.
First using my name alone; Michael D. Davis: 6 out of the 10 listings on the first page are for me, including the number one position
Second I used a hashtag and my name; #michaelddavis: 8 out of 10 listings on the first page are for me, once again including the number one position
Third I used a hashtag in front of my universal blog moniker; thedailychalkboard: This time I had 7 out of 10 listings on the page, and once again was in the topmost position.
I have worked hard to reach this position in search results, but not by applying special SEO stuff or any means other than being persistent and prolific in what I share.
A 75% rating on Google, especially with a common American name like mine, takes time. It doesn't happen over night and it's not going to happen for you if you don't work at it. Producing what people want to read, or see, or hear will be what gets you where you want to bee.29/08/2016 #23 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#18 Oh, you are right! I lost my train of Comment Stream!

Comments31/08/2016 #36 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#29 @Pamela L. Williams: I mentioned it below but it didn't get noticed...we both wrote on this same topic on the same day! Perhaps, @debasish majumder, boxes of bees were dropped off at two different places on the same day! I wonder how often this happens - and our two articles really don't have overlap - that is statistically significant. So interesting...#22 #26 #25 #23 https://www.bebee.com/producer/@margaret-aranda/sharp-check-in-dr-margaret-aranda-s-newbeez-be-a-bebee-producer31/08/2016 #32 Pamela L. Williams#26 I read about the honey production in India. It does have a very beneficial side; bee populations are growing. If you have heard about Colony Collapse Disorder then you know that most of the world is seeing declines in bee populations. India could become the bee/honey capital of the world :-)30/08/2016 #26 debasish majumderyour lovely insight instigate to ponder an alarming issue being prominent in my country, India, where bees are being dispensed from one region to other region in boxes where they can introduce the business of honey and make sizable profit, keeping the peoples economy at stake who are traditionally engaged in honey exporting business. besides, shifting of honey business by transporting bees are directly affecting the overall agricultural economy of the concern place, as the cross pollination and pollination by bees will be inevitably affect the other agricultural produces. so, i guess, being intoducing by number of do's and don'ts will intimidate the new bees to produce buzzes.

- 01/08/2016Job Listings and Openings....... Ok beBee - why is Antarctica listed? It is essentially a closed continent - it is a pure military installation event. Certainly, Bank of America is NOT there for the listings that are posted. I recommend REMOVING it.... or REPLACING it with REMOTE jobs - jobs that are global, international, home based that are not tied to a country or specific location.

Comments30/07/2016 #30 Wayne YoshidaBy the way, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian is one of the Very Helpful Bees over here. Take a look at his how to use buzzes. He is one of my beBee Heroes!
Also helpful is the beBee Blog:
One thing all Bees will need very quickly is a really good search engine for Buzz topics/subjects. It's getting so busy I cannot keep up with the content from the Bees I am following.
CC: @Federico Álvarez San Martín, John @John White, MBA29/07/2016 #26 John Marrett#21 I don't know beBee jargon @John White, MBA... Searching for "share buzz to hive" gave me a relevant article ( http://blog.bebee.com/en/bebee-guide/make-your-bebee-wall-relevant-how-to-hide-report-or-reclassify-buzzes/) ... however, I couldn't find the button it refers to!29/07/2016 #25 Wayne Yoshida#9 I had this issue in the beginning also John @John Marrett. When you write your buzz, one of the things that is **not** intuitive is - you need to have an image to go with it, or aa link that contains an image or a video. If the image is there but is low resolution or crappy in some way - it will pop out without a hive selection, and go to your followers. Not sure if this changed, though. Best to always have a nice image to go with the buzz.
After you write your buzz, and have a photo or a link with a good photo - select hives -- but if you don't have any, you will have to click on the search function, and look for hives. Select them, you have up to 3. Then send it out.
If you don't select hives, your buzz will go out to your followers. I just did that a second ago. I buzzed about a bad dog. Not the best content, but it was a test.
You can pose your question in the hive called Glitch Itch. Or, just reach out to us, and the smart and active folks will chime in.
