    There is an interesting post on LinkedIn :

    Ms. Bullock talked about all the efforts one should go through for optimisation... to get noticed.
    Here was my comment :

    "Hi Jillian,

    Thanks for the article. Definitely gives some food for thought.

    I hope you don't mind me saying that I found it a bit hard to follow, though. And, ironically, I'm a huge fan of trying to make things stand out (bold and hashtags).

    The message I come away with is, why is it so hard to get noticed on LinkedIn - what with the $1.5 billion on Pulse and the Microsoft buyout. It shouldn't bee so hard. Oops. (Did that just slip out? My bad.)

    What is your goal? To get noticed? Engagement? You might be shocked at what you get on beBee.com - just for being passionately YOU! Go ahead... Bee yourself. Try it out... https://www.bebee.com/producer/@jaredwiese/bebee-better-than-linkedin-i-proved-it

    Dont get me wrong. I still use LinkedIn daily! It all depends on your audience and goals.

    What do you think?"

    thanks @Jared Wiese 🐝 . I don't think the beBee´s value is about views. Both platforms are different. Linkedin is seen and used by many as a business contact directory. beBee is based on openness, engagement and time spent on the platform. Our mission is to make the professional world more open and connected. We will work always on facilitating networking among professionals. LinkedIn's feed is algorithm-controlled and beBee's one is self-tailored. LinkedIN is about past, present and future contacts VS beBee's focus is engaging professionals through passions. As a result, beBee has an excellent user experience and the double of Monthly Active Users. We are launching new features and a new platform during the next first quarter , and we are excited about it !!! Thanks a lot
    to all our bees for giving us so many good ideas on it ! BUZZ ON !!!!

    There's a lot to ponder in this article and it provides some more rationale for adding beBee to your social media mix. Again, I don't recommend putting all your eggs in one basket but when the basket maker starts to break your eggs it's probably time to rethink your strategy.

    "I don’t understand why LinkedIn would remove even more features from non-paying members because these are the people they sell and to be beneficial to recruiters, marketers and sales people it would be helpful if people were using LinkedIn and responsive."

    #1 I can see your point, Harvey. I agree that we need to be careful what we put on social media if we have a career that might scrutinize it.

    But I am thinking more benefits come from engaging others with similar interests. To learn and grow. To share. To show you know your stuff!

    In my profession, I know hiring managers, recruiters and HR do indeed look at LinkedIn. Nothing there or inconsistencies are red flags. Solid content, activity, public references are golden proof.

    Interesting post Gert. The four that I know of all needed to leave South Africa to achieve global success. How often do they go back? For Ivan, I suspect he would see his identity more in relation to the cultural stereotype you describe, with the wife can now buy herself a handbag comment. Oscar Pistorius could be explored as an example of a fallen hero. He is also a discussion point for the biggest problem in an otherwise great country. Which I refer to in my first post/ story on beBee.

    The word hero depends on one's interpretation. I personally prefer saying I have inspiring characters. This choice comes from the fact that my interpretation of a hero could sound like someone unreal... Elon Musk and others are definitely inspiring.

    The book I have in my home is special because it is alive every time I open it. I purchased it at Oliver Tambo Airport on the way back home and it is The Long Walk To Freedom. Yes, Nelson Mandela may not be alive now, but that book serves as a living reminder that the heroic does not have to be a human being, but the light of that human being that still remains with us. It is not just what the book is about, but also where I purchased it from - an airport named after another of South Africa's great heroes.

You're right in being proud of your SA heroes as they stand for a great role model, not only for the South African youth but, also for the youth of other African countries. Spiderman was my hero ... don't even know I survived without injuries to my Spiderman obsession, as I was always jumping walls, trees, rooftops. Thanks for this time traveling moment :).
