- Producer18/02/2017The Critical Importance Of Family In Today’s World of WeirdnessAs many of you know I have just lost a part of my immediate family. My brother-in law (sans the in-law), Bob Twidle.Yesterday my sister Sharon, Bob’s wife, came over and picked up my wife Heather who is going to stay with her for a couple of days,...
Comments20/02/2017 #13 CityVP 🐝 Manjit"Because a family is the core energy unit of the universe." That is the greatest single line that any human being can speak and is privileged to know. I was in a hotel in Belgium that faced what was clearly the National Stadium of the Belgium football team and its name was the King Baudouin Stadium. It was just a curiousity that my hotel was opposite it.
It is when I took a walk and there was a tram line next to it, that I saw the station name "Heysel". I never connected the two but now I had realized that this was the Heysel Stadium were so many Italian football fans died. The stadium had been rebuilt and now they called it King Baudouin Stadium. From that moment, the stadium I saw from hotel window had a totally different meaning.
Soccer is a tribal thing, but death brings everything down to brass tacks. There was a European final that should have been a showpiece game but crowd disturbance between Liverpool and Juventus supporters led to a poorly designed stadium becoming a death-trap and many Juventus supporters were crushed to death on that day. It is not as if this tragedy was simply an Italian one, immediately the game of football was immaterial, it was the loved one's lost that were important.
Unfortunately tragedy struck Liverpool supporters years later in a FA Cup match in Hillsborough :
So began a long fight for justice for the Hillsborough tragedy families and a 27 year struggle for truth
They were vindicated but what can never be brought back are the individual family members. It showed to me, that for all we talk about tribal this and social that - each of those lost loved one's mattered and everything else was secondary.
Family matters.18/02/2017 #9 🐝 Fatima WilliamsIt’s your tribe and as long as they are together, you know you feel complete.
What a beautiful way to emphasise the importance of family and yes No matter what family comes first and just being with them makes us feel complete. They complete the reason for our existence.
My heart goes out to you @Jim Murray I cannot tell you I know you feel because I believe Noone can ! I know that you are the only comforter to yourself. But I would say that You make beBee a better place for many and you are loved by all.
Praying for your family and you during this difficult time. Much love to all !18/02/2017 #7 David B. GrinbergJim, again please accept my most heartfelt sympathy for your loss. I lost my father several years ago, with whom I had an extremely close lifelong bond. He always took care of me and had my back growing up and even thereafter. Thus, when his health began failing, I moved him -- at his request and my urging -- from the many mediocre hospitals of South Florida to one of the world's best hospital near me. I got him into a special geriatric unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Perhaps I'll write about this at length in my own post at some point. But my point here is that, like so many, I know the hollow feeling of loss and feel for you during such a difficult time. Again, please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers -- and that of so many other bees, I'm sure. God Bless You, Jim. You are a wise man, outstanding writer and communicator, and an overall good soul. In short, YOU make beBee a better place for all. Lastly, I would reiterate what you wrote above for everyone to ponder:
"In today’s ‘divide and conquer’ world there are so many forces working to divide us. Ideologically, by religion, by race, by ethnicity and by ‘have and have not’ standards.
And many people fall prey to these forces, all of which, at their root, are powered by hate and the need to make us dependent on a system and not each other."18/02/2017 #2 Gerald HechtIt's incomprehensibly weird when the death arrives and one sees the chain of family swinging...dangling; all links are vital and when we lose one; things are never gonna be what they were --the (for me) weirdest part in the immediate aftermath are the sounds of people's "well mannered utterances" of condolence...the fact is that it just sucks...and the chain of family is dangling ...and vulnerable.18/02/2017 #1 Joyce Bowen"This love is the room that’s always there for kids to sleep in. This love is the ride to wherever anybody really needs to go. This love is the bail money, you get by hook or by crook. This love is the feeling you get when your family is all in one place together, just being with each other." So beautifully put... Thanks for your thoughts.

It's much easier to be kind. There are many great contributors on beBee, yourself included! I haven't run across you on here lately. As I've told others, maybe it's because most of the time I am on here after 12 am EST USA.

That said, I tend to comment after 12 am EST US and I probably miss many posts. I read and relevant many who I don't know at all, I even relevant posts which I don't necessarily understand but I feel others will find great value in. I try my hardest (sincerely) to repost other's material no matter who you are. I think many of us do and possibly due to time differences among Countries others aren't seeing those posts many of us repopulate. Everyone matters to me on beBee :))

Comments14/02/2017 #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 #30 Mike RanaYes, I have seen those very posts. Many of them have become hyperbolic in nature. But, as I mentioned in my comment, I see a lot of LinkedIn bashing on here that isn't wholly supported by facts. I like seeing the two networks compete against each other, but over-the-top vitriol is not needed.
The new layout has issues - no doubt about it. I have expressed some frustrations of my own over both the UI and UX. I have also made it a point to draft an email to express my concerns, and make some recommendations. I've experienced the same throttling of posts/updates on Facebook (both on Pages and my personal account); distribution is an issue on most platforms (though I have nobody I can reach out to for that).
I actually think LinkedIn has teams working on the issues its users are experiencing. I don't think they want angry users anymore than users want to be angry with the network. I've seen a plethora of postings about how LinkedIn experts are experiencing difficulty because their clients may not have the new version. Additionally, if functionality isn't working as it should, it makes it hard to give any consulting - neither of which is good if your business is in marketing or consulting.#2914/02/2017 #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)14/02/2017 #21 debasish majumderabsolutely relevant post @Jim Cody! series of do's and don't clearly reflects the essential flavor of beBee, which is purely aiming to make delicious honey. lovely insightful post. enjoyed read and absolutely subscribe with your views and rich values too. thank you very much for the share.

Stay tuned. (I've promised myself that I have to do the day's business work first before any creative writing.)06/02/2017 #34 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#28 @Aleta Curry your comment just made me smile because you get it! I used to work part time in a large Family Practice for 6 Doctors. One of the nurses I worked with was always mean to me no matter how nice I tried to be. She would demand my help, never asked kindly. I would help without one complaint. One day I needed her help and she refused. Later that day she asked, "So when do you work again?" I replied, I have the next 2 days off... again I heard, "wow, sure must be nice to be YOU!" I finally was a bit more stern and said, "No one is making you work full time, if you to stay home just remember you will take a major cut in your income. We all have choices to make and I made the choice to be home more with my kids, you chose to work full time." Maybe that wasn't nice, but geez, I got so tired of hearing that. I even had a friend who always made sure to get digs in and it ruined our friendship for years. What was ironic about the friend who made digs was this- she had a trust fund she inherited when she turned 25 and she paid off her home, car and did an entire home renovation. Her parents always watched her kids while she worked so she never had to bring them to daycare or an outside sitter. She also forgot she told me that she was able to pay off her home after she received the money from her trust, she'd say, "Yea well someone has to go to work to pay for this house." OMG, people just kill me sometimes. On a bright note: She changed for the better after her dad died (that was sad). She's not the bitter person she used to be and we are friends again.06/02/2017 #32 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#26 @Dean Owen, do you have insomnia too?

Comments06/02/2017 #23 Phil FriedmanPat, Good solid post and advice. I would add only to not make assumptions about people, but wait for them to reveal themselves in their interactions. I know quite a few with advanced degrees who would not waste their energies criticizing the way you write, but who will concentrate on the ideas and opinions you express. Not that they will always agree with you, but they will always read and respond with care. I know they are there because I count quite a few of them among my online friends.

Comments09/02/2017 #29 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#27 Perfect quote, @Chas ✌️ Wyatt. It captures some of what I conveyed in comments on @Joel Anderson's series of posts about footprints and lines.
This is a both/and situation.
Fresh perspectives, clean slates, starting from scratch, not being attached to things are all occasionally preferred.
Other scenarios require an established path, a line that we will not cross, the tracks of a life well-lived.
It is all part of the duality of life. Just like in-person or virtual relationships.
We now have the technology for it to be a dynamic, joy-promoting Both/And depending on circumstances.09/02/2017 #28 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#26 I was so touched by your comment, @🐝 Fatima Williams, that I just kept rereading it. A worthy response was eluding me until now.
We may have lost the comfort of belonging to a village, but we cannot discount the soul enlivening effect of finding the perfect virtual village.09/02/2017 #27 Chas ✌️ Wyatt"It is a pleasant feeling to be the first to walk on sands which the tide has just left. It is like being the first to visit a new land. It produces a freshness of sensation something akin to that of early morning, or of spring. It is like entering upon a new stage of life, having a new world before us from which to receive, and upon which to make impressions." ~Henry James Slack (1818–1896), "The Ministry of the Beautiful", "Conversation II: Footsteps on the Sand," 1850.08/02/2017 #26 🐝 Fatima Williams@Deb 🐝 Helfrich Having had the opportunity to have a personal chat with you I know I'm blessed beyond words can describe for having met you.
The way I describe my relationship with you is as below
"The energy I collectively feel is unique. It feeds my soul in a new, exciting, and fulfilling ways. It satisfies my heart with a feeling of a content conversation"
Fulfilment and satisfaction of talking to someone. I haven't had that in a very long time. As real friends tend to drift away seemingly concerned about their social status. People like me who is no longer worried who got the lastest car or designer clothes tend to drift away in search of meaning and true relationships.
As I mentioned in my Why I love beBee buzz. I found beBee and it replaced the human connection I needed at that time. Is there any better way for me to explain how I feel about being here and knowing you all. Thank you.Stay blessed.31/01/2017 #23 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#13 I truly value your comment, Sara. There is definitely some discussion needed here to understand how it is that we have, in some cases, these really vibrant relationships happening in tiny 2-D comment boxes. We are still in the rather early stages of getting to know each other, but if life where to occur and we became neighbors, I suspect that our concepts of each other would just blossom with all the new sensory information and 'time' to learn about how we participate in daily life.
I just cannot get around the fact that the Sara I imagine talking/typing to is in my own head. It will be coming up on a year that we've been in an orbit of friendship and the amount of data points we have both directly and via numerous other people is a rather immense set of information. But I am still creating a version of you that exists in my own mind.
We've been doing this since kids with books. I can vibrantly describe most of the books I have read in terms of a full bodily existence, even though so many of these sensory details are likely my own construct. So I don't really see it as transcending bodies exactly, just setting aside some of the realities.
For instance, I find it jolting sometimes when one of the Australians mentions how hot it is, when it is winter in Seattle. Other times, most likely when they have mentioned place, the heat is a given.
What is similar between interacting with imagination when reading books and interacting with reality when conversing on social media is that many parts of the background and environment are filled by my own local senses. While what is different is that you can answer in your own unique and completely different words. It can be a new sense in a very practical way, while also being extraordinarily magical and spiritual.31/01/2017 #21 Sara Jacobovici#17 Your generous (and flattering) invitation is too good to pass up. It will be my pleasure to take part in the dynamic meeting organized by you two ladies @Cyndi wilkins.

In my opinion, beBee is the only social media platform that really makes it easy to develop friendships with other members. A world where people seek out commonalities and community will always be more loving and peaceful than a world focused on separation and differences. This microcosm called beBee is a good place. It's god to communicate with kind-hearted people like you, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich.31/01/2017 #17 Cyndi wilkins#15 Perhaps the "Time" is right to take a small step beyond the boundaries of the "Read" and dip your toe in a little....Sounds like we have a couple of discussions emerging here that would present the perfect opportunities for us all to finally meet...face to face and ear to ear:-) @Deb 🐝 Helfrich and I would be honored if you would consider lending us an ear and better yet your input on some up and coming discussions we will be hosting.

(Deep breath.) First, let me thank you for the mention and for being in any way connected to your writing. I feel privileged to have witnessed the process you described, intellectually and artistically, of your SM self-discovery here on beBee. My "sense" of you is that you are an exceptional human being, with your heart in the right place, and your mind "a right place". And speaking of places....you write: when we "look past their body and 24/7 personality and our own typical human senses and we communicate directly with someone else as pure consciousness that actually lives inside of our own mind." From my perspective, this reflects you are in a different place than me. I am still where you write in the "full, physical, proximal, flawed" sensory, complicated body. If I had to place myself, I would be, not in the new sense you describe but "pivoting" on my older senses. I have never been good at transcending the physical. I am still navigating the integration of the physical, psychological and spiritual. My experiences of SM is still connected to the meanings I have formed from my sensory experiences. I am very "conscious" of being open to expanding my experiences and awareness but that is an expansion of my existing boundaries. I have yet to navigate outside those boundaries. You, Deb, have truly broken through and have reached beyond. All the power to you!

My eyes get filled whenever I hear something like that. Are you exactly feeling my feelings? I'm sure of your prayers, and prayers of all my so beautiful friends. Wish you all the blessings!28/01/2017 #48 Qamar Ali Khan#41 @Dean Owen! You're such a wonderful man and a wise and true friend. I always highly value what you say and write. You have such a rich exposure, and you're so kind to recognize, appreciate, and remember positiveness and sincerity. I'm glad I know you as my friend! Thank you :-))28/01/2017 #47 Qamar Ali Khan#40 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich! This is so exciting! Why I put these questions on your table? Because I knew you're the right person who knows what I mean, who understands some unspoken words, who has all the inner insight to get to the bottom. I'll be waiting to appreciate your marvelous effort.28/01/2017 #45 🐝 Fatima Williams#44 Rightly said @Mohammed Sultan The idea is to spread this to all the corners of the world.
But the most important thing is that the people who join know the purpose of giving and receiving in order to build their brand personally and professionally.
Thank you 🤗28/01/2017 #44 Mohammed SultanThat's great @ Fatima Williams,in addition to the real feeling in-house and among beBee family members we need to extend love and beBee family spirit outdoor.In principle when beBee platform is grown,the more competitors are also grown and the span of your differentiation becomes shorter.So,we need outdoor endorsements.The beauty of beBee platform begins when your competitors start to endorse you.
In the imagination zone of beBee many trees are grown and we have to use them in the the right way and for the right purpose.We have to use the imagination of all bees to stretch the platform to the non-users .The imagination which will come up with outdoor ideas and market insight about beBee that can disrupt their habits and break their daily routine.We want them to recognize how to build personal brands with more feelings and more satisfying depth of understanding on beBee.28/01/2017 #42 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#32 Such a nice compliment to all listed @🐝 Fatima Williams! I want to go out on a limb and remind @Qamar Ali Khan how much so many of us have missed him. I also would like to say, I hope whatever you are going through passes sooner than not. I will keep you in my prayers and I hope we continue to see you as you are able. You have always been a beautiful light that shines brightly on all of us. We are also here for you!!28/01/2017 #40 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#36 It actually isn't so strange at all, just uncommon. If you will allow me, Qamar, I will take the action item to write a buzz to answer your very important questions. It will take me some time to coalesce these feelings into words, but it makes sense to me.
I've got the insights, but this is a challenge for words! Thank you tremendously for formulating these questions so poignantly!27/01/2017 #36 Qamar Ali Khan#34 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich! It's so strange! The people who really love each other the most have never met personally. I take it as something a Divine miracle. I don't know you personally. In fact, I don't know anybody of my so beloved friends personally. I don't know about your personalities, your life, your practical behaviors, and anything; and so is true about myself. But what is that which has built and deepened this relationship, and which is not allowing us not to think about each other? How this love is built and developed in a virtual way? What's the main cause? Why I keep remembering you and all? If we could analyze, we have so less in common. We have everything different. But we miss each other. I see nothing like this. Deb! You have something in you that force me and others to feel you. You're something different. Help me to find the hidden secret behind this love-bond between all of us.27/01/2017 #35 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanI feel truly blessed to know you, Fatima.

Nothing further is ever necessary. Life requires different things of all of us at various stages. I send you love and care so that you can peacefully walk through the life in front of you.
I see a lot of cynical people always saying no one is ever missed if they disappear from social media. These cynics are not in my network.

Wendy Weiner Runge was simultaneously suggesting to me on the phone that I needed to ask people what value they find in my comments, so that I can narrow down what the world needs me to do, and focus on creating the business that will support me sharing my value with others.
The admiration is truly mutual. I am always joyful when I start to read one of your articles, as I am certain you will enhance my energy via your carefully crafted words and stunningly accurate ideas.
You are someone with a profound knowing and you share it so generously and with so much willingness to engage with whatever arises.

Un gran abrazo!25/01/2017 #20 Lisa 🐝 GallagherThe buzzing of a honey bee brings me back to my childhood when I was in awe of bees and butterflies. Wasps always scared me ;-) I feel fortunate, as I've only ran into a few wasps on beBee and met so many beautiful honey bees! Do we call Javier the queen bee? Maybe a new title should be worn, king bee? LOL. Sidenote: This summer we had bees or hornets that were coming into my home through a small area between my Cedar Shakes. They were living inside the wall of my den. Luckily it happened during early fall and by the time they were able to get inside my den they weren't very active. I had a pest control person come out who was very familiar with bees vs. hornets and I saved a ton of dead ones. Right away he told me they were hornets. He sealed up the small area they were going into and within 24 hours they weren't arriving in my den anymore. If they had been honey bees, we would have had much more issues because of the wax hive they create. It creeped me out having hornets in my den.25/01/2017 #17 Devesh BhattMetaphorically speaking, focus on being a bee and not labelling anyone a wasp.
Public opinion is like water on rock, someone maybe convinced and start behaving like a wasp.
Bees have a lot of self restraint.
Another analogy, bee stings in children were considered as a vaccine for particulate types of arthritis, claim was rejected in 2009 but accepted in 2016.
So a bee sting should help another get moving, professionally moving so to speak, even the sting is a cure :)

That is an old pic, by the way so obviously I have changed. 😰 I wish I still had the outfit, boots, hair and legs. I used to dance a lot and I mean a lot. I still dance but not as much. It is great exercise yet doesn't feel like exercise. Paul and I were working out with a personal trainer but the place went belly up. We need to find a new place and get back to it. I enjoy a good work out especially when the weather is cooler. I have more energy and motivation.23/07/2016 #81 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman#78 How was your birthday @Pamela 🐝 Williams? Fun I hope! I am familiar with Cape Canaveral from several years ago. I remember it as a pretty area and interesting due to NASA. We used to drive over there to watch the launches. I like Georgia because of the mountains. After living in FL most of my life, I welcomed the change. Thank you for the compliment on my poetry. I have a lot of fun with it and feel I am creating. Come on over to WordPress! There are several bees that blog on WordPress including our Queen Bee @Donna-Luisa Eversley.23/07/2016 #80 Pamela 🐝 Williamshey, I used to have boots like that. Franci, do you remember the song by Nancy Sinatra; These Boots are Made for Walking! That's what you photo made me think of! We use to have a video of my younger sister (about 3 or 4 years old) dancing to that song wearing a pair white boots. I think we wore out the video torturing her with our teasing!#7923/07/2016 #78 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsWhat a wonderful story Franci! Told you I'd be back :-). My daughter is a cracker, born at Cape Canaveral. I lived along the Space Coast for about 9 years and two of my best friends are still there. I've never done more than drive through Georgia so can't say anything about that other than my son-in-laws father lives there. What I know about you Franci is that your poetry flows, it makes me think or it makes me smile. I enjoyed getting to know you! I hope our acquaintance continues for many years to come! Enjoying life together. Now, my next social media journey will be to check out WordPress. I'm finding writing online is very cathartic, more so than anything I've ever tried.

Comments27/01/2017 #54 Mohammed Sultan@ Max J. Carter-beBee has always stressed on demonstrating personal brands based on their passions and common interests ,this will help put culture differences in the back yards of our mind.You can reach A GROUP of people with the same language- that's easy,but to approach PEOPLE whose perceptions ,thinking and feelings like us on beBee,and make them closer to the values and spirits of your personal brand ,that's not easy and not within the power of other platforms except beBee.

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.
