Bebee is a great site. It will take time to grow to be the greatest site. Everything takes time.

Jaja, I am not worried, nor did I misunderstand the meaning of your intent. Social media tools can easily become double blade. However for tech savvy like me we know our ways around to get users life easier, thanks to opensource community. I help government agencies and National TV broadcasters in the educative mission to vulgarize software and web based technologies, including mobiles. The famous 3-5 minutes format showcase. FB can be tamed.lol

Your comment, Graham🐝 Edwards, raises what is, to my mind, an interesting question: How many business-oriented users on beBee are actually looking for clients versus executing some longer range marketing or branding campaign? You say that anything (everything?) you do on social media is to pursue your business goals, one of which is to develop your professional brand. Of course, you also expect eventually to pursue qualified prospects and convert them into being your clients, eh? So the question becomes whether you find sufficient activity and business presence on beBee to potentially sustain your activities in these respects. Your prospects who may turn into paying clients if you and Renee find them funding are a red flag for me -- unless you're talking about charitable non-profits looking for grants. (For those who may not know, in the field of non-profits, grant writing is often done on a contingent-fee basis.) It's like talking to a self-declared entrepreneur who doesn't want to mortgage his house in order to raise start-up capital. It shows that he or she doesn't have a clue about starting a business or being an entrepreneur. I personally see a lot of that kind of thing on n beBee. I appreciate your vote of confidence with respect to when you decide to buy a yacht. But remember that a good portion of my consulting activities -- although predominantly within the yachting industry -- have to do with business operations, management, and turnaround consulting. And I am finding the pickings virtually non-existent on beBee -- in contrast to LinkedIn, where I am in contact with prospects on a pretty regular basis. Cheers!

Hi Phil Friedman, now that i have gotten some rest he's my answer to your HSHS question... no I am not finding clients on beBee, but it was never my objective with this platform at this time in its evolution — I was looking for a forum to share my thoughts, validate my domain expertise, get feedback (which is the big upside of something new with early adopters), expand my network, and cross pollinate it with my other social networks. For me clients are at least two degrees of separation from who's on beBee, and this will be compounded based on the geographical restrictions a person may have based on the type of business. For me, anything I do on social media (beBee included) is to pursue my business goals (and dare I say developing my professional brand) — I save the recreation activities for other things. If anything, this discussion has been an important reminder that it takes a lot of work and time to find potential clients and then work to turn them into clients who will give us money for our goods and/or services. As an aside, when I do look into purchasing a boat (and this is proving to be quite real because my property is close to lots of water) I will definitely reach out to you. And I will pay you for your insight (and expertise) because I don't know anything about the best sail boat to buy and considers to getting the most out of it in a northern climate. I will say I met Renée 🐝 Cormier through beBee and some of our collaborations are getting us closer to real live clients who will pay (well some of them are start ups who will pay when we help them raise money, but that is a whole new topic unto itself.) g

Good reminder Jim Murray .. I had an odd experience. Once I requested a LI friend to meet. He is from our city. But he said that he made it a point not to meet his social media friends in person. May be he had a bad experience. If we can't meet someone in person, how can we see, judge and carry forward the interaction towards positive developments of mutual interest? I always try and will try to have a "3D presence" in the social media.

Excellent points, Jim. I also would note the following in term of networking for career advancement: Today’s job seekers are fortunate to have a plethora of social media networking tools at their fingertips. And while this certainly makes the networking process easier, it should not supersede it by serving as a safety blanket. Although social media networking is a great start, it’s also important to meet your connections in person, to the extent possible. This solidifies budding relationships and makes you stand out in a crowd of job seekers who may shun in-person meetings. But let’s face it, most young people today appear more eager to text than talk. They would rather use Facebook over meeting face to face. Millennials and Gen Z should not rely on social media networking alone, nor should anyone. That’s just one tool and can’t replace the human element.
