    Dear @🐝 Fatima Williams one unique characteristics of beBee I love the most is that it helps me find other bees with common interests and the beBee environement immediately connects me with them. This ability I do not find on other social media platforms. And the interesting part is that you do not need to search fir such connections. You would keep buzzing around and suddenly you would notice common-interests bees in your circle.

    #13 Dear Fatima, ultimately it is called "Network Intelligence", utilized intelligently it empowers one's life. BTW Fatima I would like you to welcome @Lauren Juzl she has just moved to Madrid and all of this is a new experience for her. Her post https://www.bebee.com/producer/@lauren-juzl/technology-blackout-why-we-all-need-to-turn-off#c5 is pragmatic - and like the millennials I go to college with, she does ask questions which means she is actually thinking deeper about the full meaning of network intelligence. The bridges to our hearts are the most important, then how that forms home - and how home forms village - network intelligence begins at the village level - with your own life value highly central to all bridges.

Certainly, Bank of America is NOT there for the listings that are posted.

    By way of clarification, @Javier 🐝 beBee, I've proposed a number of things - but never suggested that beBee should become "a project management tool".

    Collaboration is something else altogether. Admittedly, it implies more functional traction than we see in most of the Facebook-y trivia and shallow marketing tweets that dominate social media. Bell Labs saw the synergy in 2009. They're not dumb.

    And Collaboration also has real resonance with placement, hiring, and recruitment efforts. In fact, I see 'recruitment' as the first step towards Collaboration ("I've got an idea/job description/proposal. Does anyone want to contribute?").

    Relevant Footnote: Corporate Intranets are often "owned and operated" by the HR Department. There's a natural "affinity" with internal people-oriented (as differentiated from customer-targeted or business-driven) services, if you will.

    I believe that you may want to re-visit the topic of "Affinity & Collaboration: Your Intranet on Steroids" after you've had a chance to re-consider, Javier. When you're ready to talk, please bring your wallet.

    That invitation is open to anyone who 'gets it' and would like to make it happen ...

    #15 Thanks for confirming that my design guidance counts towards beBee ambassadorship, Javier @Javier 🐝 beBee.

    I notice that there are at least 2 - seemingly redundant - hives ("beBee ambassadors" and "beBee's ambassadors") on the topic in English, but no direct access to info about "what is" an ambassador. I suggest that those would be good places to post links to that useful background info.

    I also notice announcements that several people are now officially designated by beBee as 'Ambassadors'. How might that apply to me?

    Note:
    I know that my design guidance stuff isn't *literally* ambassadorship. Even so, I wonder if some of my more 'ambassadorial' efforts appear on beBee's radar. For example: My birthday happened the other day. I got a slew of nice birthday greetings from my LinkedIn followers. I took the opportunity to respond to them with this message:

    "Thanks for your kind birthday wish. It really made my day.
    I hope that you'll follow me now on beBee at
    https://www.bebee.com/@john-vaughan"

    I have a similar message for LinkedIn colleagues who choose to connect with me there. Just sayin' ... Nothing markets quite as effectively as 'word of mouth', in my opinion

    #13 Hi @John Vaughan , I dont know what you want exactly. I am open to listen your suggestions. beBee is focused on improving communication but beBee will not be a project management tool because there are a lot of them ! beBee is the world's most dynamic professional social network. Individuals can create an appealing personal brand by combining their professional resume with their personal interests. Our innovative approach to networking facilitates a vibrant job placement and hiring environment for both individuals and organizations. We help build significant professional relationships, provide the ideal platform for sharing ideas and content and create economic opportunity for everyone.

    Utility implies value. Usability is an underlying assumption of The Information Economy, even though it's not necessarily well-measured by Marketing and Sales. This article - and several of my other buzzes - identify real issues and propose a number of immediately actionable design solutions.

    This article also proposes a that a well-designed affinity-oriented service has significant additional market potential for beBee ..... Does any of this apply towards Ambassadorship, @Javier 🐝 beBee?

    Yes, the design of the app (I haven't been on website too much) is a tad confusing. The first time I tried to publish something, the app said I needed a picture. I didn't have a picture that related. I could have posted a picture of my dog, but my dog had nothing to do with the Buzz. I wish the app had a way to invite people, especially off another site. The app itself is not stable. I've either been knocked off or it freezes at times. I've added people here to my network,, but would like to add from other networks that would benefit here.

    Oh well, I've been enjoying my time here. It's not stuffy like LI. I'm sure things will improve...I hope.

    Thank you John. for the shout out. This is a terrific concise summary of the problem, and of the comparison to a platform such as beBee. And I bet beBee execs @Javier 🐝 beBee, @Juan Imaz, and Matt @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood would agree. Cheers!

    #13 Bless you, @Chas ✌️ Wyatt - You're one of the good ones for sharing. But also very much in the minority. Actually, this article has a significant number of shares ... so maybe that indicates something. In a related vein: I also wish that my short public "buzzes" could be part of the mix.

    @John Vaughan, the three hive limit doesn't really bother me. I've shared Buzzes by other Bees in other hives, expanding their reach. The limit on length of comments is much more bothersome to me.

    Hey, @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín. This article also exhibits some ugly artifacts in the lines "BeBee is different because it is an affinity based site." and "It helps you focus your message". These lines do not display as style text when published, even though they look OK when I have the page in edit mode. See "WYSI.not.WYG" in https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/editorial-tools-get-it-in-writing. The artifact appears to be triggered by overlapping styling and or cut&paste during the editorial process. Thanks

    "bees do share" = true @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian . In their immediate communication with each other they sing (buzz) and dance (form patterns) - usually in order to direct each other to attractive flowers, which has strategic implications for pollination (first step towards creating honey, plus supporting the growth and flowering of longer term infrastructure).
    John Vaughan
    05/07/2016 #16 John Vaughan
    #10 Clarification, @Javier 🐝 beBee: I did not intend to propose that "Pollinate" should replace "Share" as labeling throughout the UI (though it's a thought). As noted in the title of this article, "pollinate" is currently the "missing metaphor". I believe that it's an important one - and should be made part of how we describe things.

    That said, [ Share ] is a commonly-accepted and understood call-to-action. I DO propose that beBee re-visit the metaphors that describe what we can do in an affinity-based network which uses "bees" as a theme.

    Aside from that, I suggest that the Comments section is not the place to litigate the issue, and "crowdsourcing design" isn't necessarily a great idea - especially if it's based on selective invitations. "Change is Difficult" enough, as it is ... https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/change

    By the same token, "Collaboration" is a valuable attribute of an affinity-based network - and is the sort of thing that Bees do rather well. It's worth consciously designing into the system. Let's do it right.

    Actually, bees do share. I'm not crazy about using "pollinate." It has too many comedic overtones and is often used as a euphemism for copulation/insemination. Hummm, maybe I should change my mind.

    #10 We pollinate mostly through comments and writing a buzz on a buzz. I rather not make the change @Javier 🐝 beBee and sorry for jumping on the wagon without asking

    04/07/2016 #7 John Vaughan
    #6 Hope you'll reconsider, @Javier 🐝 beBee. It's never too late to get it right - and beBee still has quite a ways to go. BTW: The discontinuity and confusion between 'short' and 'long' posts exactly mirrors similar problems at LinkedIn. I don't know that I'd necessarily describe "good usability" as gamification, much less that you can gamificate too much.

    thanks a lot @John Vaughan, Pollination is a great name for sharing content, anyway, we don't want to gamificate in excess ! Any shared content shared through beBee is a buzz. Honey bees produce honey with the Producer tool.
