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. What a group duo here & all the Bee's that I met over the past year. beBee will continue to be very successful & has great spirit. Best regards, Bill Stankiewicz13/01/2017 #29 🐝 Fatima Williams@Chas ✌️ Wyatt Your straight-forward and down to earth attitude makes you a very special beBee and you contribute in your own unique way which make the experience even more special to us all.

"Change is never easy, and as humans we are in fact sensitive to any discrepancy in complexity. Might we just try a little harder to put things into context and simply make the most out of our world view(s) across the landscape of context, perspective, orientation and civil discussion?
And on a positive bee buzzing note, that is what I find refreshing so far about beBee."

Comments07/01/2017 #44 Lyon BraveIt's more accessible than other social media types. Facebook is only good for your friends. Twitter you can add everyone, but there is no connection even with all the tweeting. Instagram is causal and great for images, but not friends. I feel like at bebee, you can really make pen-pals and new friends, without coming off as a troll.

Every time you comment You share information that we would have otherwise not known. Like who knew there was a ""The Daughters of the American Revolution" in Washington DC. You talk about masculinity in its politics there. Imagine other parts of the world.
Women are still being trampled in some places I know. I was disheartened to read political views on the recent Mass Molestation of women on New year's eve in Bangalore , when everyone all over the world were welcoming the New year.
I wish that Women are looked up for more than just the feminine part that exists in them. I wish the world had more people like yourself.

Comments06/01/2017 #23 Mohammed Sultan@Max J.Carter.As you chose your words carefully you have to do the same with the pictures you are demonstrating ,people can seriously misunderstand what it's they are not saying .Posture can be seen as a metaphor that distorts the main idea.A well balanced posture is also more pleasurable and emotion calmer.No matter how you view it ,good posture is crucial for getting the readers positive perception. Ambassadorship is a responsibility, not un opportunity,as you said.06/01/2017 #20 Max🐝 J. Carter#19 Interesting choice of words Michael.
I am curious if you are familiar with the beBee Brand Ambassador program?
As far as I know I am not a legend in anyone's mind, if that changes....
There are many who use social media to puff up their ego, it's the only reason any of us steps and speaks up is because we feel we have something to say that needs to be heard and we make that decision on our own.
Our ego is our identity an everyone needs one or you do nothing for your life. It's about bringing a healthy ego to the discussion. We do have to puff that up a little to think we should speak here and now with what we have to say or no one would ever write anything or say anything.
That would be boring.06/01/2017 #19 Michael GormanYou have become legendary in your own mind. Ambassador for what?
Social Media is a media opportunity, for humanity to use-we can escape the tyranny of corporate dominance, if you can make a connection with specific groups you can build your communication and overcome the gatekeepers that were set up in the 20th Century, this is the great opportunity of social media-not to puff out your own ego.05/01/2017 #18 Max🐝 J. Carter#17 Sounds like you have a lot to write about @Dorothy Cooper. I am curious to read your thoughts on those first two very socially relevant issues and your unique view in living.
Sounds like your story might inspire others who are going through similar even though it might not be popular.
It's that inspiration that is needed so much more than something popular. It would be nice if the things that really matter were more popular. ;)05/01/2017 #17 Dorothy CooperToday, I wanted to puke on social media. I want to write about the disability abuse issue and I thought this is close to home for me. I have a son with Autism and I use a wheelchair. So many issues, I guess maybe I need to address something like retail therapy while being snowed in! My lab's birthday is tomorrow. He and I survived two knee replacements, two shoulder replacements, and four hip surgeries. I am so grateful for that! Thanks for all the posts and efforts on this great platform. Dorrie05/01/2017 #15 Mamen 🐝 Delgado#14 You know, not so long ago I had the need "to reconcile myself with the human race", as I liked to say. It was that way until I realize first step was reconcile myself with myself.
And then the script turned into a new narrative style. Just different. Growing and learning until stop breathing...
Thanks!05/01/2017 #14 Max🐝 J. Carter#13 Thank you @Mamen 🐝 Delgado. As we go we all share in refining that narrative as we contribute our thoughts and our dreams for humanity and how we might get there and what we can do in the now to build towards it.
In this global discussion of these ideas it gives us the opportunity to see how we might act locally to take the narrative we create here and live it and make part of our human history that we write each day.
Use your voice and add to the story of us, the human us.05/01/2017 #12 Max🐝 J. Carter#11 Good points and why I always take the time when the topic comes up to say the best way to keep it cool is to keep it about the what and set passion aside for the discussion in comments.
Even in disagreement it is always the cooler heads that prevail.
It's also where using set up phrases such as "I think" "I feel" and "in my opinion" become important not only to use but to recognize the use of when determining the response or if one is even needed.05/01/2017 #11 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#9 #10 Wow.... Now these two comments prove that something special is occurring.
We don't even have to get along. Just respect that we all belong.
In all honesty, I think a bit of the discord is because we all actually care deeply about the future of beBee.
And caring sometimes means inadvertently not realizing the line between stating our own opinion and trying to get someone else to pledge allegiance to our opinion. If it is a good opinion or idea and you state it clearly enough times - it will sink in to those minds where it can do some good.05/01/2017 #7 Max🐝 J. Carter#5 David I was shocked because of those blunt opinions I am infamous for.:) haha
I wrote that post right after I read the announcement which was humbling. I also wanted to make sure I gave myself a reminder to remain humble. Get ahead of my foolishness before it shows up or at least try to,.
Thank you David05/01/2017 #5 David B. GrinbergMax, congratulations on your ambassadorship. I must admit I was a bit surprised. Nevertheless, I have always admired your prolific writing and blunt opinions -- even when I disagreed with you. So how does this square with your other post about being humble? Just wondering. Thanks.🐝🐝✌️️🇺🇸05/01/2017 #4 Max🐝 J. Carter#3 And it's that word respect I want to key in on Deb.
beBee isn't responsible for people showing respect fro themselves by showing respect for others. Something I have said several times over, no platform is responsible to play high school principal.
It falls upon the membership to put up with it or not and to call it our or not.
beBee give a great mechanism in the report abuse on the comment function to minimize this activity and create a safer feeling community where we can treat each other with respect even when we disagree we do the respectful thing and keep it to the what and avoid the who which often turns into shameful name calling.
As I hear it Javier mentioned that any Ambassador engaged in bullying of any kind will no longer be an Ambassador. One of the reasons I feel comfortable in being a Brand Ambassador for beBee is the no bullying tolerance.
Its'something several members of the community even buzzed about for a while. The community responding and saying "no we do not do that here."
That alone is the reason beBee will always see growth, it's in the way the membership creates a safe space and works to keep it that way.05/01/2017 #3 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI think one of the key reasons for the ultimate success of beBee is the recognition that the sky is the limit when their aren't imposed actions and goals. There are such a wide range of ambassadors writing and commenting and sharing along a multiplicity of styles and niches. Your message is an important one - to keep doing what isn't broken. Respect everyone. Collaborate to make a place in the virtual world where everyone feels that they can be exactly who they are and find like-spirited people. So very open-ended and filled with extreme potential.
Very exciting ride!

RAH RAH SIS BOOM BAH!03/01/2017 #28 Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand AmbassadorHi @Jim Murray, I agree too with you & for many years I have taken many connections off line from LI because of limits & restrictions. I enjoy helping folks & am here to help beBee succeed & they will be a great continuing success.

As a communications professional with a passion for business and marketing, it is a very natural thing for me to promote beBee, which is a wonderful social media site that offers compelling content to interested and interesting people. As a writer, nothing could be more rewarding than having intelligent people read and comment on my content. I get a tremendous kick out of seeing how many people read my posts and like what I have to say. I have always been a fast and ready advocate for things I believe in, and I believe in beBee and the power of the wonderful community it is attracting. I didn't need to be named ambassador to do what I do for beBee, but I am proud and honoured that I have been. The work I do here will continue because I know my efforts will go toward making our online community stronger and more attractive than ever.29/09/2016 #22 Michael D. DavisOink! 🐷. That'' Pig Latin for I gitcha @Jim Murray! You've got a nice "in your eyeballs" style of writing that my alter ego Bo " bad boy" Buzzbee can relate to. Keep up the good writting Jim, and thanks for all the pro bono work you put in. It doesn't go unnoticed in my little hovel of a hive. 🐝29/09/2016 #18 AnonymousThanks @Jim Murray! As usual, I am just an ugly fractal troll. The best marketing in social structures, including social networks is a byproduct of a trust and the visions that are common for a large group of thoughtful, committed people (with or without the title) who can effortlessly change the world for the better. Their world and our world. This is a long-term process and the ultimate task for all beBee users. People tend to beleive that an enthusiastic support of someone or something that is worthy means to be a cheerleader. But it is still a sales relationship. I would rather call it this time a social responsible behaviour. George C. Homans, American sociologist and founder of behavioral sociology pointed out that social structure is a human interaction. The mere fact of belonging to something that is worthy will give us freedom. Freedom to develop and grow together. We won't forget each other and human interactions, right?29/09/2016 #15 David B. GrinbergNicely stated, as usual, @Jim Murray Your blogs about beBee and other efforts -- along with that of all the ambassadors and fans of this wonderful budding social network -- has played an instrumental role in attracting more users to the site and growing its popularity. The fact is, to be blunt like you, LinkedIn couldn't give a rat's ass about it's users, especially the non-paying ones. This is especially true for independent writers who once helped build LI's publishing platform (Pulse) into the go-to site for independent writers.
But then LI stripped bloggers of their ability to fully engage with their own networks who voluntarily chose to follow them. This was a cold slap in the face, to put in mildly. Thus, as you state, the exodus from LI for greener pastures began shortly thereafter -- and for good reason. Those of us who were led to beBee by the platform's "Moses" (John White) found an oasis in the desert.
And for those who try to belittle ambassadors as"cheerleaders," I say this: Cheerleaders are all about showing spirit, support, enthusiasm and teamwork. How do I know? My better half, Nicole, was a cheerleader coach for 9-years. So to those who belittle the dedication, time and efforts of this group of impressive and admirable ambassadors and fans of beBee, I would just say this: lighten up a little!
Thanks for all you do, Jim, along with the other fine ambassadors and fans of beBee. Buzz on!

AND, like so many have said, there are far too many bees to tag. This is what I believe separates beBee from other platforms.
There are true people behind the posts, buzzes and comments who genuinely care for others, want to share... to grow. They are open to be inspired, not consumed with selling something, getting a job, luring a lead or posting purely personal blabber.
You ALL have truly inspired me. I thank you and wish you only the best in the new year.27/12/2016 #16 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianFar too many to tag, really. I would say the most influential to me were @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher and @Pamela 🐝 Williams for inspiring myTweetPack.com. @Robert Bacal for his insights into that process. And, @John White, MBA and @Javier 🐝 beBee for making this a fun ride.
- 26/12/2016SanctuarySanctuary According to vocabulary.com, "sanctuary" is any place where people go for peaceful tranquility or introspection. This is that place for me on this platform, where I save buzzes that fit this intention - and I can come here and refer to them. All

When in an equal business partnership, and one has a habit of not pulling their own weight, how best to address this?
Let's assume a personal friendship exists before and across the business relationship. Let's also assume the business itself is healthy and growing.
Comments22/12/2016 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichEqual isn't only 50/50 in every dimension. Maybe one person has a lot of time to invest, while the other person has a very limited amount of time but can produce 'equal' impact over a longer period like 30 or 60 days. Looking at clock hours it might seem totally unequal but looking at results it may be more equivalent.
We can use the J's as an example if the only dimension one looked at was time on the platform, there is a clear inequity. But we can easily assume that very equivalent work is taking place focused elsewhere.
So an honest talk about roles and how to ensure equivalency is in order.
If it is a good partnership, almost by definition, the strengths should be different, so it may take some discussion to understand how to assess whether each is pulling their own weight.

- Producer17/12/2016LinkedIn and BeBee have their uses. Let's give credit where credit is due.Now that Microsoft has closed on its deal with LinkedIn, there are articles surfacing about the future of this network. There are also many users who are frustrated with it. Ever since I learned about BeBee and joined it, I see that many people are...
Comments18/12/2016 #16 Jim MurrayNice Piece, @Mike Rana. I believe that the traditional rules of engagement no longer exist and so I post everything everywhere. You are right about beBee being relatively new compared to LinkedIn. But being able to direct your posts to LinkedIn from beBee is a huge plus, because for "everyday people" distribution from LinkedIn's publisher is a bad joke. Being able to direct your posts into special interest affinity based hives on BeBee is also a huge plus, as is being able to link to more other sites. For bloggers, it's a numbers game, and since coming to beBee 7 months ago my numbers and engagement on beBee dwarf the numbers I am allowed to achieve on LinkedIn. If it wasn't so easy to re-post there I probably wouldn't do it at all. I agree that LI is a powerful networking tool, but there is a lot of resentment that you will run into if you are too aggressive and that can hurt your brand and your reputation. But anyone who does not have beBee in their mix is missing out on a good opportunity to get well established in a new environment.18/12/2016 #15 Paul Walters@Mike Rana Great points. As a user of Li I simply plodded along until I fell instantly in love with Bebee . Its the connectivity on this site that I think is wonderful . Having said that I haven't given up on Li and slink back there a few times a week....bit slutty of me I know but then again.......17/12/2016 #13 Mike RanaHonestly, aside of commentary left on the article's thread, I have no way to knowing who is reading I publish.
The major takeaway for me for LI is that if you are considered an industry expert or established in your field, perhaps published in multiple places, you have a better chance of being recognized. While it might seem defeatist, I want to reach that goal of recognition on LI.#1117/12/2016 #12 Aleta CurryI still use LinkedIn in, of course I do. Horses for courses, as my husband says. But I'm more optimistic about the long term future of beBee, and, to tell the truth, I like to know that people are reading what I write.
For what I do, I think that beBee will eventually become *the* go-to social platform in my marketing plan, which is why I'm getting so involved while the platform is still small enough for me to be heard.17/12/2016 #7 Zacharias Voulgaris 🐝Even though LI is great for exhibiting your professional persona, I never got a job from it. Also the job search feature is rudimentary, unless you invest in the professional packages. It seems that it's run its course. Now it's time to move on to newer and better places...17/12/2016 #4 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI have no problem with LinkedIn - and the more this comparison between beBee and LinkedIn is made, it actually takes away from beBee has its own identity, meaning and way. Just because Britain used Australia as a penal colony does not define the character and history of Australia, unless one focuses on the penal colony alone rather than on the indigenous people of Australia and the multiplicity of the cultures that have emerged in that country ever since, then all we get is a distorted picture.
In marketing terms drawing a distinction between LinkedIn and beBee is simply a brand awareness exercise to let people know that there is an alternative, but beBee is distinct from LinkedIn. It is like saying that LinkedIn vs Facebook is thing that most people care about - no - only a handful of people disaffected by Facebook care about that, the vast majority ask a basic question
"What does this do for me?"
By a person's actions, the answer is in that question. I am not one of the disaffected and there were also 10 million bee's before I arrived and hopefully there will be a billion bee's after my time is done on this Earth of ours. So I am totally in favour of giving credit where credit is due and at the same time, because I firmly believe that one needs to know one's own strengths and work with those, rather than hope for crumbs that fall off from the masters table. Comparison shopping only works if the mass feel that too and not just an elite or any disgruntled minority. For me beBee has it's own unique character and I celebrate that.
