    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.

    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.

    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.

    #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

    @Dean Owen, @Gerald Hecht, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, @Jim Murray

    "Over-posting" - or (let's call it what it is) "spamming the world" - is a potential problem and I'm well aware of it. I didn't include it as part of my original article because I wanted to focus on the proactive justification. The argument is pretty much the trade-off between 'on the one hand / on the other' ... and that could be an entire book. In any case, it's a discussion worth having. And I hope we will.

    The suggested solution to the '3 is not enough' situation seems to be: "use a hack". In the UX arena, telling a customer to use-a-hack indicates that you may want to re-visit the design of your interface and your functionality. Just sayin'...

    @Jim Murray > I'm painfully aware of beBee's editorial weaknesses, which have resulted, I believe, in the presentational artifacting (ugliness) that you describe. I've already spent far too much time *hacking the glitches* in beBee's editorial UI. All I can say is that the presentation appears clean on my end now. Problem is - as it always is in these situations - I don't see what you see. In the meantime, I'll suggest that you [Refresh] your browser - and also try [F5] and [Shift]+[F5]. Please update me if this works for you. @Federico Álvarez San Martín> Can you take a look?

    Hmmm. BeBee is different because it is an affinity based site. This means you can direct your post into 3 areas where you feel you will be talking to the kind of people you want to talk to. I think this a good idea, not just for beBee, but also for anybody writing here. In a way, it helps you focus your message. I also agree with @Dean Owen, that your post will get forwarded by people in the hives you post it to if they feel it has merit...thus encouraging you to write great stuff. Admittedly, I have wanted to post to more than 3 hives from time to time. But what I do then is send is forward it to another hive from my home page. BTW, the typography and line spacing in this post is all over the place. The way your pssts look affect both readability and perception. I learned that the hard way. Just a little free advice.

    #2 No errors that I see, @Dean Owen. I always share to 3 hives. If I want to share to a fourth, I just ask someone to do it in the comments. Hmmm​, a comment listing suggested hives to share to might not be a bad idea.

    I fully agree with the dangers of over-sharing too
    Gerald Hecht
    06/07/2016 #4 Gerald Hecht
    @John Vaughan you do know that you don't have you up all 3 of the wishes the genie has granted you ALL AT ONCE -before changing the UI, (if the Mexican Waves get any stronger, people are going to become exhausted with the "circular firing squad of kindness effects that keep them from actually reading and doing stuff) CHANGE yourself (myself, our selves). You get three wishes. Choose what, and, when wisely. Quality Material will be shared by others in their hives. Nonsense won't hang out as long. It's not that hard to wait a week --3 weeks even, before sharing with a second hive (which will have grown and/or evolved by then), or may not have even existed when you first posted something...something to consider before defaulting to: "I want more!"
    Dean Owen
    06/07/2016 #2 Dean Owen
    Some good ideas @John Vaughan, but I feel beBee is different because a new article appears on EVERYONE's home feed, at the top, as soon as it is published. The only reason it wouldn't is if a user has used the "Mute User", or happened to "Silence Hive" the exact Hive that the article had been posted to. Already that is a huge advantage to LinkedIn/Facebook. Your article is distributed to everyone, not just your followers. As such, they do need preventative methods to restrict an author sharing the same article multiple times. I think 3 Hives is perfect, and when I publish, I usually publish to 2 Hives, saving the potential to share in a further Hive if perhaps the article lifespan is so short that it is likely some people who consistently read my articles may have missed it. Another "Hack" is that you can share your article to your followers multiple times. The risk is that if you do share too much, they might Unfollow you, which is a good self regulating method of ensuring less spamming. I do hope that people do not use this hack too often, as abuse may prompt a limit to be implemented. @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian can correct me if I have made any faulty observations.

    "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.

    #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.
