    Bebee is all about affinity, true a better UI would be the hook to attract users but the low hanging fruits, the ones with an affinity towards affinity and passions would actually look at our positives rather than the negatives of LinkedIn, infact many don't even want to give so much thought to the details, they would rather focus on the experience.
    Thumb rule, if you are giving me analytics how would I know the nuances to evaluate and whether they are relevant, but I would evaluate things I can check and validate and see if the company is representing itself honestly or the person promoting it is reliable.

    I just had a thought, the Bebee ambassadors promote the good and let the negative feedback of LI come from new users who actually state Bebee as better hands down.

    What do you think?

    Agree @Jared 🐝 Wiese @Phil Friedman !!! "we need to attract more real-world business people to beBee." @Phil Friedman As for me.. Im posting on beBEE first because producer is superior and engagement +reach seems much higher.. then I repost from producer to LinkedIn+Twitter... After 2 weeks then I post old article in Linkedlin ... milking the content as much as possible... but always trying to bring readers first to beBEE... Cheers !!! And Thanks for the article @Phil Friedman .

    #18 Phil, I appreciate your feedback. This is a great topic.

    "we need to attract more real-world business people to beBee."
    Completely agree.

    "real world business content, not articles ... by writers who haven't"
    Again, agree.

    "See a great video"
    In my opinion, that video has some great advice. I too like practitioners (results) over theorists.
    Phil Friedman
    11/01/2017 #19 Phil Friedman
    #17 Yes, @Renée 🐝 Cormier, I do the same at times. And I also, at time, repost the piece in the native LI publisher. The problem with always pulling people back to the beBee article is that the likes (relevants), comments, and shares tend to accrue to the beBee article, which does not help you as a writer with the LinkedIn Algorithm. But I agree with you that nowadays you can often get more exposure (initial reach) on LinkedIn with a photo update than with an article published for Pulse. Thanks for adding to the conversation. Cheers!

    #16 Jared, I haven't because I don't buy the common wisdom about which type of content is better for which platform. And because most of the writing and publishing I do on social media is ultimately for business purposes, whether that is in my core business of marine industry consulting, or in my peripheral activities as an author/ghost writer/editor. What I can tell you is that he engagement index which I use shows higher for LI than for beBee, when I make use of my established co-op network of sharing authors there. This is order to bypass the choking down which the LI Algorithm performs on the distribution of my work to my connections and followers there. The bottom line is that we need to attract more real-world business people to beBee. And the only way to do that is to have real world business content, not articles on leadership by writers who haven't led even a Brownie troop. IMO. See a great video on this at: https://youtu.be/gsWoEh5wwxk?t=9

    I share my beBee content on LI in two ways. You will get more views, I find, if you just post your link as an update. If you want to be known on LI as someone who writes about topics relevant to business, then you will want to have posts connected to your profile. I take the first paragraph of my beBee post and a link to the rest of the article on beBee. I use the same graphic and title in both. That way anyone who looks at my profile can see I write about things that are relevant to my work. I do not post affinity based content on my LI profile.
    Jared 🐝 Wiese
    11/01/2017 #16 Jared 🐝 Wiese
    #14 Yes. It's right up there with cat/dog pictures being best for Facebook.

    #7 LOL, is there such a thing as "too promotional"? I think not.

    I'll be posting soon about some streamlining I'm doing on myTweetPack.com .

    It was built by power-users for power-users. Making something super-powerful and very easy is next to impossible.

    I'm adding simpler paths for those who can't spare the time, or don't have the inclination to learn to use it's full power.

    #9 Yes, Mike, that is a good idea. Many of us have been doing that for years using MS Word or a similar wp program. The practice sometimes cause unwanted codes to be embedded in the past to the platform publisher, but that can be solved by writing in, or doing a final save in plain text format just before blocking and pasting to the Publisher. You may have discovered this already, but you cannot copy and paste images, but must use the insertion tool native to the publisher involved. Thanks for reading and commenting. Cheers!

    #2 Mike, it's a legacy habit from my days as a print magazine editor, when titles were often in all upper case, and the deck was in initial upper case. Sometimes I believe it helps draw attention to the headline or title in cases when special fonts, bold, and italics are not available. You noticed it didn't you?

    For LI I do two things: 1 - I make a LI version of every post, so native.

    Then I include #li in my scheduled tweets (scheduled tweets aim at beBee). That hashtag triggers an IFTTT script that updates to LI. I do the same for my FB page with #fbp

    Emily, FYI, I tried several times to post this in the "beBee Buzz!" group on LinkedIn. However, each time I received a red error message stating, "Something went wrong, please try again later." This is a minor example of bad luck. Either that or LI finally infiltrated our group and is intentionally sabotaging it -- which I hope is not the case.

    OR to look at it from the other side: No matter how hard you work does that stop the boss from calling just as you're rushing out the door to your child's concert and you're just sure you're going to miss her solo but just as you pull into the crowded parking lot another car is backing out right in front of the door, so you make it to your seat just as your little girl comes on stage?

    Nice buzz, Emily! A few thoughts:
    1) I don't see anything wrong with wishing someone "good luck" as it's a positive message IMHO. It shows you hope good things come their way.
    2) Luck and timing are both intangible factors which are beyond our control. However, both can play a pivotal role in life, including job attainment and advancement.
    3) Saying: "The harder I work, the luckier I get."
    4) To the last point, people can help themselves leverage good luck -- if and when if strikes -- by preparing for it. How? Work your tail off, set big goals, network, think positive, believe in your dreams, etc. On the flipside, if an opportunity luckily comes along but the individual is unprepared to seize it, then that's a big opportunity missed. Moreover, these luck-related opportunities don't come around too often (in my experience).
    In essence, luck is one of many factors which may or may not contribute to one's success in work, relationships and life generally.

Also, I really don't think there is any real reason why someone would use it. If you want an email provider, there are professional solutions out there, like zoho.com. If you want an email client, there is Mozilla Thunderbird, among others. Why some people still use Outlook is beyond me...

    #4 Satya Nadella is just folllowing along Steve Ballmer's footsteps by adding another lemon to the basket Ballmer started; Let's see- aQuantative, Nokia's handset business, Skype, Fast Search & Transfer ASA (FAST), Vision, Yammer, etc. LI and Microsoft makes perfect sense; Nadella just melded two lemons together- maybe he'll make lemonade. I made the mistake of using Outlook for my email after MarMay screwed-up Yahoo! Outlook is also a piece of trash.

    #11 Well, it wouldn't be the first time they screwed something up! I remember a time when Skype was actually pretty good (those were the days!). Then it was acquired by MS and it was all downhill for it from then on...

    It´s a numbers game. Dishonest people, fraudulent people, people with ill intentions are part of our society. At a certain size, every platform will attract them.

    Nobody can remove them fully from our real lives, and the same is true for social media.

    It´s a neverending race. While criminals will find another hole shortly after one is closed, every attempt to make cybercrime impossible comes at the cost of sacrificing convenience and privacy.

    Great article, Rob! Finally, someone will tell it just like it is without any worries of repercussions. LI is broken and dirty. I get a lot of invitations and I would say that 1 out of 10 are fakes or scammers. There must be a sale on Russian brides because I'm getting a run on these lately. Not sure why they want to link up with me...I'm already married. The profanity use on LI is absolutely out of hand. Hang in there, Rob!

    #5 Aleta - I am not a lawyer by the way ... I just 'fell into' law, both criminal and civil, more-or-less due to an innate interest.

    #1 @ Joseph - I wonder when Microsoft will realise that they have purchased a 'lemon'. Initially the purchase would have made sound business sense .... but I do have to ask will the purchase provide the ROI envisaged?

    #2 @ Aleta .. under New Zealand law 'aiding and abetting' would stick. Realising that an illegal issue could occur, then doing nothing to mitigate the issue or its effects does make the provider (LinkedIn) morally, ethically, and criminally liable.

    I have lived the abusive customer in call center management over the years.

    Most people don't realize how stress filled customer service jobs can be.

    It would be nice if they did and those on the front lines could take less of it.

    I have had to take over a call or two with abusive customers and let them know their business was no longer appreciated which is the best thing a company can do to keep the bonds of loyalty and trust strong with the front line.

    Dig the piece and the advice in it.

    I like your number 3 reason the most. When I first started in business, I was so excited to get a sale that I was willing to go into the RED, to make a customer happy, rather than just say "Sorry, I can not help. Let me show you someone who can. Luckily, I got my help screwed on straight."

    Very true, it will cost you more to keep them. Focus your energy into positive relationships.
