    Abandoning Facebook or LinkedIn is a bad idea. Don't close doors !! But don't put all eggs in ONE basket ! Both strategies are smart: 1) don't close doors 2) don't put all eggs in one basket. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/never-put-all-eggs-in-one-basket-keep-linkedin-but-explore-bebee

    As a matter of fact, similar functions are available today in different Social Platforms, but that is not a condition to exclude one another.
    With regards to Facebook and Snapchat, even though functions might be similar in both platforms (copycated by Facebok in this case), the key point here is the average type of audience in both platforms: Snapchat average user is more reluctant to sharing their content on Facebook, and feel Snapchat to be more of their playground, where they are more willing to open up and share their content and build their community.
    And by now Facebook cannot beat that.

    Thanks for the article!

    Workplace by Facebook has all the right elements to scale. They have pitched it perfectly with the notion of collaboration. This is a 21st Century idea which is a simpler way of saying "Network Intelligence" or "Alliance" which as ideas of Reid Hoffman are brilliant, but Facebook have taken all that and messaged it brilliantly. They see the blue ocean that LinkedIn has failed or maybe even does not want to attract which is lower-skilled workers - just as beBee found its blue ocean in global markets that LinkedIn never thought about..

    According to Fortune Magazine http://fortune.com/2016/10/10/workplace-facebook/ Facebook have penetrated and has been adopted by over a 1000 organizations. LinkedIn left the barn door open for them and all I can see is a big blue bull but it is a paid subscription model and that is a recipe for more strategies that try to lock users to their platform. They already have had their knuckles wrapped for trying to lock "free internet" in India to their platform, but the Indian government saw that coming from a mile away. This development is indeed interesting to watch as it now unfolds, and ironically at a speed which Reid Hoffman calls "blitzscaling". Know what is Momma Microsoft gonna do to Father Facebook???

    Great article. Another great way to build you audience on Facebook is to make both a personal and business profile. Keep your promotions on your business pages and make sure that your personal profile has a great first inspiration with links back to your second Facebook page.
    Find your target market, yet never self promote yourself. This means do not give out your links, your Facebook page. Other like, comment, and share and their material. This in turn begins to create a relationship. People notice that you are giving without asking.
    In most cases is when the prospect, opens the conversation up, and not you. You are now free to invite them into you Business Facebook page or find what they are looking for. Try to be like a doctor. They are coming to us with a problem, and we may have the solution.

    #24 @Robert Bacal.I absolutely agree with your view.The question has to be asked according to the respondent terms.Sometimes respondents have to be taken gradually or asked the question indirectly but at the end the researcher has to make sure that they are related to the same issue.

    #21 Thank you for your response .If you want to take a decision to change people perceptions you have to depend on more than a single view through one track thinking and one methodology.No single viewpoint is really enough to fully and properly explain and predict people's complex behavior.
    Nowadays,the complexity of the stimuli makes it very difficult to depend on a traditional researcher as the issue goes beyond psychometric theories.
    We may in future to rely more on clinical psychology to fully understand perceptions and attitudes variables.The limit is not in the data itself but in the researchers imagination.

    #19 The original data gathered was psychometric data through the recognised questionnaires, not likes and dislikes. That dataset was linked to Facbook profiles because that is where the data was gathered from. The researchers ended up with millions of inputs, that the then correlated with the activity of profile holders. This allowed them to generate ever better modelling. Just read the original article and all of your points are answered.

    Mohammed Sultan

    @Geoffery Cooling.First,a researcher can not manipulate people perceptions,motivations and aspiration through asking what do you like or dislike about (stimuli)? particularly in a very dynamic society of 350 millions people,not all of them on line.Second,as we are all aware the reader's is not always subjugated to the stimuli ,but to how h/she is close to the writer(ie if the researcher asked the same question in a different context or changed the stimuli he will be struck both by the similarities and differences between his perception and people choice).

    Second,even if it were a reliable and valid demographic survey and representative of the actual universe, the researcher would not be able to conduct a modelling between (un related!) factors because it would require repeating the same survey to find any change in their behaviors and attitudes.

    Third,people motivation can't be determined depending only on socio- economic and demographic data,but by doing motivation research associated with "words"rather than "numbers".Nowadays, people are not so motivated by statistics,but by words that reflect their behavior and feeling.

    Thus,we always advise researchers to get out and talk to people .Researchers who don't get out and talk to people are not real researchers,but databasers.Data is collected by different methods depending on the purpose and the context of the study through questionnaires or topic guides that
    has to be filled by them or by the interviewers after giving them a proper brief of the objectives of the study,here the interviewees should be informed why they have been asked and who is interviewing them.

    Fourth,when it comes to dropping conclusions and decision making, data are facts but the creativity of the researchers lies in their interpretations and reaching conclusions.

    Finally,I ask myself ;are we really need or willing to be psychonalized in the form of likes and dislikes?

    #15 Exactly true zach. Most regular users won't know to do that stuff though. I figure it's not worth the hassle personally, and just treat everything I do as identifiable. And to be careful about ALL personal info, like birthdays, where I am at any given time, etc.

    It's actually shocking what even regular people can find out about someone, and it's pretty impossible not to leave identifiable tracks. Unless one simply doesn't use the Internet, OR NEVER identify oneself and ALWAYS use false information. Which is pretty limiting.

    THere's a point where precautions start to interfere with convenience - even blocking and clearing cookies, which is a smart thing, starts to be a hassle. And as soon as you buy something, even at amazon, or use google, you will be tracked.

    #14 I'm more concerned about companies rather than law enforcements. The latter tend to leave you alone if you are lawful. The former tend to spam you and sell your data to ad companies, regardless of what you do.

    I find that the ghostly add-on for the Firefox browser can be a bit of a deterrent to them though, while Orbot on a smartphone is an essential app to maintain some anonymity. Finally, if you are very serious about remaining out of reach from the trackers, there is also VPNs, Tor, and several other privacy systems...

    #12 Actually, what you said isn't strictly true. It depends who is doing the tracking. Your IP address from which you send anything is recorded in numerous "places", and your computer has a unique MAC address. In theory the MAC address shouldn't be publicly available.

    In fact, it's quite difficult to be untrackable. You can take basic precautions as you indicate, but you ARE tracked by companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon.

    Finally, law enforcement CAN find you.

    It's what I've been 'preaching' for years. I figured it out when movies and TV shows started putting particular products in certain types of show and movies. A case of: "if you'll watch this type of show, you'll more than likely buy this kind of product". Then the reality TV shows hit and made it okay for people to act out in unsociable ways. It's been a steady stream of influence that changed the way people viewed the world and their countries. The only thing they would glean from my Facebook page is; I hate Trump. It's my platform for my political views. Here I can show my personal side, other than politics. Very interesting study, will have to delve into it more deeply.

    This is indeed a very important matter that we all need to take into account. However, it's not all doom and gloom (well, not entirely anyway!). Nobody puts a gun to your head and forces you to like or even read your FB wall. In fact, even the use of FB (or other information farms) is entirely voluntary. So, if you are frugal with the information you give to these companies and voice your opinions without broadcasting a million different things about yourself in the process (perhaps using an alias, like it is possible in many sites), then you have a much lower risk of being tracked. At least this way you make it a bit more challenging to find out who you are and what you are up to. So, if you really must comment on that cat video without others noting down the fact that you love cats, you have this option!

    #8 Agreed that it will effect some of my behaviour but for what length of time....for example I may just have been to the village hall and placed my vote based on the information fed to me online.... on the way back home I meet a lady from the village - we chat - she is compassionate etc ....so maybe just maybe she has tempered my stance on a particular matter.........I have voted and the harm is done however I now call into question my actions.....and so on and so forth....we humans can be swayed in many ways....it reminds me a bit about the old folks lessons about walking tall and you will feel confident....smile and someone will return that smile....influence comes in many guises.....the on screen world demands your attention in a particular way and the body is in a set position for periods of time....maybe changing physical position can change mental position....still curious about the length of time on screen influence lasts.

    #7 Okay Helena, so, for arguments sake, you are a lady who has some racial hang ups but you hide it well. Racist? No not me, definitely not! However, your data shows that you are from an area of the country that is most definitely shall we say racially charged. You like some groups that could be said to be hovering on the edge. Your friend Mary posted an article about a black rapist that got seventeen years for raping a white lady, you commented terrible business. You are most definitely not a racist, then I target your facebook feed several weeks before a vote on a racial issue with stories about crime with images of black men attached. The stories are mostly true, mostly, with a bit of sensationalism tagged on. I know that according to your psychometric data that you are a conservative type and a little anxious, so I go for stories that really get your back up. How do ypou think that affects your final vote?

    05/02/2017 #7 Helena Jansen van Vuuren
    As they say....Ya well but no.....can see that quite a bit may be gleaned from online 'behaviour' and that you may even be steered in a certain direction but that is information that is gathered from a very particular static environment - more often than not - from the same desk or the same body stance and face on interaction with a screen....would be very interested to know what length of time that influence lasts and what triggers rejection of said suggestive input? I have noticed that I may well like a certain item of clothing whilst engaging with the screen but this has not affected my buying pattern in practice......there is something that changes when you move from the computer - I step outside my front door, cross the road and amble down the lane and I am a different person.....or just the other me!

Personally, I feel Mark has a right to sound off on a topic on Facebook he feels passionate about. He's donating his life worth to good causes, and he pretty much built FB from scratch. Mr Weiner on the other hand... could not care less what he thinks / feels. LinkedIn is a joke these days if I'm honest.

    Interesting. I backed off LinkedIn a couple of years ago, when I discovered beBee and shut down my facebook account and started over with only people I knew personally last year. I totally agree with your sentiment that just because you own something, it doesn't give you a bully pulpit to preach to your connections. Social media, however has managed to flip the real world on its ear a bit. Maybe that's by design or maybe it just sort of happened. But lately a lot of people are catching onto it and walking away.

    This was a great Buzz and you hit some great points. Yet, one point that @David B. Grinberg made is that the average user of Facebook is 50 minutes. Since my goal is to get my content in front of viewers, it is a great tool if used correctly. I just don't browse it.
    Message those you want to share with. What is great about this tool is you don't need to have an active conversation. You can see if and when someone reads your messages and vice versa.
    But, I still enjoy the beBee platform better for building relationships. I do fear that within 5 to 10 years, this media site will be full of bee not understanding how to Hive system. They will put irrelevant posts in hives.

    That is, I have never (ever) had a personal account on Facebook. However, my employer does have a company account on FB for which I periodically contribute. Why no personal account on FB? Here are a few reasons...
    1) Time consuming, as you artfully articulate above. The average daily time spent by FB users on the site is 50-minutes, according to a comSCORE. FB tops the list of all social platforms on this metric (LI is almost last at under 5-minutes).
    2) Bucking the trend, being rebellious and staking out my own social ground elsewhere.
    3) Not wanting to connect with some relatives, ex-girlfriends, friends from home town/high school, etc. (who flooded me me with invite requests).
    4) Privacy issues, which have been ongoing. And not just with operational issues and the FB user experience, but also because I don't need 1-2 billion people knowing my personal business, nor do I feel the need to showcase/showoff how my life is purportedly better than everyone else (per all the grandstanding and bragging).

    @Mark Tillman Davis - I am also disillusioned with the dumbing down of LinkedOut and Facebook and the constant white noise and unwanted advertising in my stream. Despite constantly cleaning up my contact lists and page likes etc. I am having to sift though a lot more dross to get to where I want to be. beBee is now my main platform.

    You are a very determined person. :) I have about the same feelings regarding FB and LinkedIn but until now I couldn't close my accounts but I'm seriously thinking about it. Somehow I still hope for all things to straighten up again. Congratulation for your decision. The sooner, the better. In Romania we have a saying: "a longer disease means certain death"

    Thanks so much, Katyan, for this informative and timely buzz. I have an admission for which I need to face up, even if I don't save face. That is, I only use Facebook for my professional day job via my employer's account. I do not have a personal FB account and have never had one. Yes, I know that sounds a bit rebellious considering nearly 2-billion users are on FB, so let's just say I'm a social media rebel. Nonetheless, your buzz is still timely, educational and appreciated. I've shared it on three hives. Moreover, I'm looking forward to forthcoming upgrade for beBee Live Buzz, although it's fine to use now by downloading the beBee app on a smart phone. Have you tried it yet?
    PS - Thanks for tagging me @Donna-Luisa Eversley!

    I wonder if this is the result of the reduced attention span on Facebook because most of it is posters and people are training each other to not read unless it can fit on a poster?

    While it works from the marketing aspect I think it is making us all less interested in getting deep into anything or hear anyone out who has something relevant to say just because it is longer.

    #3 I really appreciate the answer, @Sara Hodge. Mostly then because I don't have a fanbase.... I was quite the sm hold-out and fb seems such a popularity contest sort of place. I am certain my introversion has much to do with it - I don't like doing something just cause a billion other people are. I read through your 3 part series and all great advice, but I still wouldn't have the first idea how to find the pertinent groups. But I am chipping away at my resistance...

    #2 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich I most definitely think you can benefit from Facebook, so long as you have some specific goals in mind and you're not just joining due to outside pressures. If you have a fanbase and they are using Facebook then it's good strategy to go where they are and engage them for sure. Out of curiosity, why have you been so hesitant to join the fold?

    Actually, @Sara Hodge, I could use some advice. I sorta consider fb a no-go-zone. I don't have an account and like to advertise that fact. I am the recipient of a small page created about my book. Any thoughts as to whether I could up my book sales by taking the plunge and figuring out how to 'goldmine' my cute puppy photos?
