- Producer03/12/2016What being a Bee means to meAbove all, I would like to thank the honour for being appointed as Bebee ambassador to Javier beBee and Juan Imaz and their team. As some bees already know, I’ve landed here due to Ali Anani who I first met at LI around 2013. After so much...
Comments04/12/2016 #22 Pamela L. WilliamsThere are so many words shared here that hone in on what beBee is and how it is different from other social media offerings.
@Zacharias Voulgaris "Being a bee is being urged to be creative and part of a global community where everyone is valued and respected."
@David Navarro López
"You can’t explain it, and is hard to know how it came to Bee.
You can’t describe it to anyone who never felt it before.
But you know you are. And other who are too, can see you are."
"We are free to feel and express ideas and share how much fun it is to type out a comment that is not meant to be a shield for an attack or accomplish anything other than being an honest expression of what occurs to us in the moment to contribute to a discussion."
They are all saying the same thing: It's safe to be your creative self, to let our minds flow, to express deepest selves, to find that community that is becoming rare in the non-virtual world.
Thanks David for sharing and for featuring @Ali Anani who is an inspiration to many Bees.04/12/2016 #21 Zacharias VoulgarisFor me it's more than a feeling (or a psychological state). Being a bee is more like embracing this era's zeitgeist, the idea of collaborative effort to tackle common problems, such as information overload, information streams of low veracity, and content farming (see LI). Being a bee is being urged to be creative and part of a global community where everyone is valued and respected.03/12/2016 #19 Franci Eugenia HoffmanI love the positive vibes I'm feeling from this buzz, as well as the comments. Your lines below reflect what beBee is all about.
"This lonely wolf, this lost bee, finally has found a hive on which it should bee.
Proud and happy to bee here.
This is just the beginning. Life ahead is promising.
Let us make our world a better place to “bee” in."03/12/2016 #16 David B. GrinbergKudos, David, on an excellent buzz. I know that countless number of users (bees) here share your sentiments. @Ali Anani is enough reason for anyone to join beBee. His intellectually stimulating writing and thought process is always a breath of fresh air. Also, kudos on being named an ambassador. I'm sharing this on three hives and posting in the "beBee Buzz!" group on LinkedIn. Keep up the buzz!
cc: @John White, MBA03/12/2016 #15 Anonymous#14 Quite an interesting exposure, thank you for your time. Above all, we can't forget that Bebee is not based on an algorithm. The result of it, whether pizza or hamburger is, it is directly connected to the quality and periodicity all of the bees are producing honey.
An appropriate environment has been created to produce this honey, but we, the bees, are each and everyone responsibles to produce it.
In addtion, we are not limited to one kind of "food" or another. Therefore the hives were created, to group people by their affinities.
To try to control and classify them intentionally would kill the very spirit of it. You can not put fences to the country, as we say in Spain, meaning, you can not limit what it emerges spontaneously. I would not like to be on a place where some people decides what is convenient and what is not.
In my case, I prefer home made cooking.03/12/2016 #14 Mohammed SultanDear @David Navarro Lopez .In the final analysis of what beBee means to me ,one is reminded not of the Spanish omelette of beBee's communications team but of being in love with Pizza Hut when I click at night for beBee,and to click for linked in during the day, when I tended to have a sandwich from Big Mac.Faced with such a situation we maybe in a need to do three things to develop beBee platform;
First;Review of all beBee pizza varieties(beBee contents) based on the actual users need.Second;Have a proper positioning of each type(hive) based on the quality of the producers.Third;The new brand strategy my suggest the introduction of a Pan Pizza( ie. like HBR for linked in ) beside the current types(hives) to give maturity to these hives and to expand it's use during the day (ie.Promote beBee as a lunch meal).Since families with kids have been a large target for Pizza Hut ,beBee may also consider hives for Business Kids to widen its users base.Here we may also add new varieties(contents) or drop the ones that showed no marketing potential in the past,whatever the scenario will be we have to do this without hurting the quality image of beBee contents or turning around the standards and specifications of the current contents.03/12/2016 #11 Deb Helfrich#8 That is exactly the sort of comment that makes me - and probably many others - feel at home on beBee. We are free to feel and express ideas and share how much fun it is to type out a comment that is not meant to be a shield for an attack or accomplish anything other than being an honest expression of what occurs to us in the moment to contribute to a discussion.
I do wonder about the scaling myself but them I think thoughts along these lines from @David Navarro López:
"I believe being a Bee is like being in love.
You can’t explain it, and is hard to know how it came to Bee.
You can’t describe it to anyone who never felt it before.
But you know you are. And other who are too, can see you are. "
This is a place for authentic human conversations and that will scale, I just know it will.03/12/2016 #8 CityVP ManjitDavid, remember this feeling and keep this post as a marker because it contains your visceral connection of what beBee felt like in its nascent and early years. Then I look forward in time, and how one retains this same visceral connection with scale. Whether it is the blitzscaling that Reid Hoffman addresses or the Unicorn that beBee definitely has the potential to be - the vision of emergence is how the actual scaling preserves the freshness and vitality of what we experience in the hear and now.
In this regard I have opened myself to exposure to diversity. My affinity is not a specialization or professionalization, but with variety and diversity. At a certain point we become a part of the furniture, we find "our place" but my affinity is with people finding their place in the uncountable flow. Where I live there is a rural village that got enveloped by an entire city - but that rural village kept its identity but also functions as a part of a humongous city. I like the village but I acknowledge the city and embracing that kind of scale, while still having our feet firmly planted in our own home, is what I find most fascinating with beBee.
We arrived here at the early part of beBee's development and I intend to scale with it - and then like a city recognize that I am still emerging as an individual, thought the city grows in its diversity and fill with millions of people we will never ever get to know. That for me is the greatest fascination of all - and along the way we will become the elders of this new virtual city, and thus this is what I celebrate most about beBee - not just the here and now but the emergence I am presently emerging in.

Which, I'd love to share with you- The hotel management never followed through with me. I contacted someone higher up at Hilton Headquarters and they not only awarded all of my points back, they also gave me 3500K extra points and sent me a free night certificate to any Hampton Inn within the US. Nice buzz! Sharing!25/11/2016 #14 Jared Wiese#8 Deb, I think you summed it up perfectly.
A very good background story, Stephane. One to which I see many similarities.
I also agree with your point on hives. I got too ambitious also and had to leave many. Yet, I seem drawn to rotate through some of them :) You know, to spice up the affinity a little more at times. I find that the people you follow also helps you find good content.23/11/2016 #8 Deb HelfrichYou've really highlighted the journey from wondering about beBee to being a passionate promoter.

"What sets beBee apart from other professional networking sites is that it builds business relationships, rather than just contacts, by connecting people based on the interests or hobbies they have in common."
beBee acts as a personalized media platform.
You can create your own customized social network. If you like Tecnology and Fashion, you just join those hives and that's it !
And of course the best team ever!! Sharing!18/11/2016 #38 Michele WilliamsQuote:
Our concept: "Engagement through Passions"
Our mission: "Make the professional world more open and connected"
Our slogan: "be Professional. be Personal. be Successful."
(What we do: "We share something. We enjoy. We disagree. We agree. We learn." - @Javier beBee, this is one of my favorite quotes)
beBee allows us to grow and learn in connection with each other.15/11/2016 #35 Melissa BitzWow, this is a great clarification, explanation of what really differentiates BeBee and makes it all the more fab!

Comments14/11/2016 #46 Pamela L. WilliamsWe're alike in the fact that my mind never seems to stop. The difference is knowing what to do and how to use the ideas; that is the talent, the gift and the one I don't possess. I can't seem to do just one thing at once. I'm still trying to figure out how to write and walk at the same time. When in school I would walk and read at the same time otherwise I could not keep in my head what I read. :-) It was great getting to know you better @Javier beBee, I love your positive, friendly outlook. It's refreshing and just makes the Bees feel good when we interact with you.
Great Interview @Mamen Delgado! You did a wonderful job of bringing the real Javier to us.13/11/2016 #44 CityVP ManjitThis buzz has made me wonder if there is a connection between entrepreneurial spirit and laughter. Whether it is Richard Branson or Jeff Bezos, or even an intense Steve Jobs - there is always smiles and laughter - even in this account http://www.businessinsider.com/gil-amelio-steve-jobs-2011-10 View moreThis buzz has made me wonder if there is a connection between entrepreneurial spirit and laughter. Whether it is Richard Branson or Jeff Bezos, or even an intense Steve Jobs - there is always smiles and laughter - even in this account http://www.businessinsider.com/gil-amelio-steve-jobs-2011-10 - of course the character and style is different, but laughter seems to an entrepreneurial trait, and as the Jobs article says Jobs recalled. "He was just such a buffoon, and he took himself so seriously. He insisted that everyone call him Dr. Amelio. That's always a warning sign." - Now Jobs was not an example of a positive thinker, he was more of an example of what it takes to change the world and enter the great hall of leadership, or as he said in his classic remark to convince John Sculley, a Pepsi executive to join Apple ""Do you want to sell sugared water for the rest of your life?" - and so tempering his fierce competitive spirit is this underbelly of a great sense of humour.

It is understandable how someone can become annoyed when things pop, with strangeness, giving a jolt and leaving traces of confusion. Yet, with sheer frankness and boldness, you took an initiative to express all that as you felt.
Truly, how oftentimes we find people hemming twisted thoughts, with blurring lingo and adding mingled feelings as if they are drifting in the air or flying in the waters. Now and then, they keep snatching ideas from their own virtual castles and create chaos and devise theories of complexities. Reading them or gauging their writings can wobble your mind...mingled realities can only produce mingled inspiration. ..or turn you nuts because you cannot delve into their abstract content and have a glimpse of shapeless empery of chaotic scribbling.
Randy relish your post and be a cheery ambassador! :)

CC @Deb Helfrich @Laurent Boscherini @CityVP Manjit Close23/10/2016 #19 CityVP Manjit#15 Hi Deb, that is how I have read his buzz. I remember when there was a technical glitch with his pictures disappearing that was a cause of concern. In the glitch that @Gerald Hecht mentioned, he cited that his account was compromised, and so technical issues may well be at the bottom of this. Again more the reason to shift mindset to hope, and as Julian of Norwich said that " All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well", which underpins the meaning and felt experience of hope.23/10/2016 #13 CityVP ManjitIn a strange way it is fitting that as my, @Deb Helfrich and @Pascal Derrien 🐝 comments got redirected here, that where we were all pondering what "final" means in Alan Geller's buzz, we actually got transported to Gary's buzz "Hope". Here it is not the mindset of two people falling, but our comments falling, and as they fall into this place, the lesson for me here ironically is one of hope.23/10/2016 #11 CityVP Manjit#9 Hi Federico, glad you responded from Gary's buzz because I had left my first note for Alan on his buzz and it didn't go there. Then I re-wrote another note, but now I see that both got deposited in Gary's buzz [Hope] below, so just like Deb I don't know how the comment stream got redirected but glad you are aware of this and I will leave it to you to analyze and see what is happening.
- 19/10/2016Interesting update on LinkedIn yesterday. Anders Liu-Lindberg said "Here's why I don't spend more time on beBee, Inc. Tonnes of views and almost no engagement. How do we make it better?"
Some of my observations:
- You are known on LinkedIn [2,472 followers]. You could write anything and get engagement. That's great!
- There is no dedicated Business Finance hive now. Why not create it? No hive may indicate limited viewers. Build it, promote it and perhaps that will be the change you seek.
- If you title a post with "Basic Finance Function" and it is not understood, is it a shock that engagement is down?
- When you put that in Accounting, you may get 1.5k views from the hive's 87.5K users. But will they understand and engage?
- On LinkedIn, I search business AND finance, and your articles were 3 of the top 4 from 3M results. ..."business finance" (in quotes) =
