    I was under the impression that a black swan is neutral. At least that's what I got from studying N. Taleb's book, where the concept was first introduced. However, I understand why many people view black swans as negative. Perhaps, I find that they can be useful, in many cases, depending on where you stand. For example, blockchain technology (note that the letter b is not capitalized in this case), is sometimes seen as a black swan. It is not negative necessarily though, unless you are ignoring it altogether. Same goes with many other technologies that are considered black swans.

    I agree with Javier, this not LinkedIn nor Facebook nor anything else, it is beBee, but it will need more clear product differentiation. In an example, 'branding,' What kind of branding and what sector (s)? This is a very competitive space with a lot of overlapping. You can fully differentiate and become a niche player, hopefully with a market of enough critical mass to be financially feasible, or you can address more segments and try to become a dominant force, or, at least, have enough critical mass to be profitable. beBee already fills a vacuum for good social media in the Spanish market, LinkedIn betrayal to its writers and discontent for the way they upgrade their platform opened a big opportunity to beBee and now many of us supplement our offering using beBee. That two column feed, a middle ground between Facebook and LinkedIn is fantastic, add the interface, which, even with its limitations is very attractive. With the new model, it is at the mercy of how much page views can the local talent create. in order to attract ad revenue. beBee needs more than that. A good sharer available to every bona fide publication would be a great way to spread the message: 'we exist. Instead of killing all the hives that depend mostly on external content for discussion, you preserve these interest groups.

    You need critical mass, economies of scale. I am assuming this is a business, not a subsidized entity. Regarding 'deeper connections,' well, LinkedIn came with this from the beginning (I am one of their first members). I told them many times, it was not going to work and for many years it was a sleepy resume site. I had around 200 'contacts.' Once someone had a light bulb on over his head and opened the gates, the site exploded, in a couple of years I went to 30,000 contacts (actually more but they decided to enforce and I lost thousands of contacts). Almost everyone was pissed. It is supposed to be a professional and business network where to brand yourself, not a resume repository. If you are going to use the site as a branding tool, the implication is that it is business, marketing (in its ample definition). If you only have your mom, pop, the family and some friends and business associates you have a deep connection with, you starve. Business needs critical mass and economies of scale, at least within the feasibility of your market position and strategic space.

    beBee encourages you to create deeper connections

    We encourage you to employ this strategy when creating a connection with others. It might seem frightening at first—that is the reason why many professionals want to keep separate personal & professional profiles—but it will help you open up and allow you to create a different kind of connection with someone: a deep, lasting connection.

    With an integrated personal and professional profile, you can connect with people based on shared hobbies, passions or interests. Not only does this help start the conversation, you may also find you develop a stronger, more successful business relationships by being able to bond over something outside of office talk.

    #13 As soon as beBee came to the USA I promoted it fiercely, even without being a brand ambassador. Inside LinkedIn, they see beBee as a threat and they are making changes to restore their lost functionality and improve their platform. I can understand that any are tired of political memes, especially those on the receiving end, but, politics translates into policy and law, and love for the Furher is still not in the law. No matter the good intentions, this is going to kill many groups, as it is easier to import content and discuss it than producing original content. Hopefully, the new beBee incorporates as much as possible all our concerns.

    #13 Most of the people who came here from LinkedIn, feeling betrayed, have none of the following or access to groups they had over there (here, one can post 'Honey,' to up to three hives, in LinkedIn up to 100 groups, plus your contacts, followers and potentially all Linkedin, Twitter and out of LinkedIn. (my guess is that beBee is working on this). My writings in LinkedIn are mostly found via Google. Wisely, the LI members here see beBee as a complement to LinkedIn and Facebook (there is a serious side to Facebook, believe it or not).

    03/11/2017 #16 Francisco Lopez
    #13 USA owes its rapid growth to the LinkedIn disregarding of its writing talent for giving exposure to what they call influencers, usually people of prestige in all facets of life, government, and industry. LinkedIn had at its maximum well over a million people writing, probably more than their distribution algorithm will sanely manage, beBee does not have that kind of critical mass yet. be Bee is, potentially, a great opportunity for good writers to get some exposure but it is still not the moment to exclude quality content because of the locally produced stupid content (cats, dog, dating updates, fake news, false memes).
    Francisco Lopez
    03/11/2017 #15 Francisco Lopez
    #13 There is a big difference between the stupid cats, dogs, dating updates, fake news, false memes, and the professional content allowed to be shared by professional media that is produced by millions of minds; beBee is excluding the potentially best content in the world for unpaid content ranging from excellent to good to amateurish. beBee Also the limit to 1,000 characters is not stimulating to the discussion.

    #6 #8 David and Gert- both great suggestions. Yes, it can be overwhelming when you've been away for a few days but I have to tell myself to keep scrolling if I find articles that may not interest me. I forgot about the mute function, great idea. My last buzz was a photo buzz and I tried to make it fun by writing about my vacation as well. I love photography as many of you know, so when I do get photos I'm proud of or that make me happy to view, I love to share them within a buzz.

    Hi @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝!! Interesting post! Yes. BeBee has changed a little bit and this change is on progress, as far as I understand. What is really good is that all bees are connected through Hives! They work wonderfully!! Notifications can be changed as @David B. Grinberg commented here. So, let’s make BeBee better giving our 5 cents now and then, BUT the best way to improve it is to make it well known everywhere!! Let’s promote BeBee with our friends, coworkers and clients!!! Agree? :D

    Flavio, kudos on sharing your important insights and valuable views. It's vital for beBee to receive user feedback in order to continue platform-wide improvements. Just a few thoughts:
    1) This platform is still a baby bee. Consider: Google is already 19 years old. LinkedIn is 14. Facebook is 13. Twitter is 11. Pinterest is 9. Instagram is 7. Snapchat is 6. That's a combined total of 79 years versus just over 2 years of beBee -- which represents a new generation in the world of successful social media startups.
    2) I likewise miss posting buzzes on my wall and via hives. However, here's an easy solution: keeping posting your buzzes, albeit via Producer with a short 200 word (required) intro about why you're posting it and why you think it's relevant. You can even quote excerpts from the actual buzz you're positing (assuming it's an article) or report of your own related Producer posts with it to build on prior engagement. You need not write a separate blog post of 500+ words per se. Why not give this approach a try?
    3) Lastly, I agree that too many notifications can be burdensome, especially if you take a few days off. My suggestion is to mute the bees whose notification you no longer want to receive. You can do this by going to their profile page, clicking the three dots and selecting "Mute User". This has worked well for me. Plus, you can always still scroll through the separate Producer feed.
    I hope this suggestions are helpful, Flavio.

    @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝 Here is a suggestion: Perhaps you should place a few of your picture buzzes with descriptions in a post, and do one every few days. That way your BeBee publications will reach all of your followers AND you will be able to place it into hives. That is just my 2c !
