Comments23/03/2017 #47 Javier 🐝 beBee@Devesh Bhatt yes !! all of us are passionate about beBee ! that is the reason why we expend A LOT OF TIME on the platform !
Networking is about building sustainable connections for generating opportunities, both personal and professional ones. We contribute to our following. If we take advantage of it and we don't put our part, we can never succeed.
"One of the best ways to get your passion and power across to employers is to publish content on beBee.
beBee recognizes that we are about more than just business and that our passions help us connect more completely to others.
beBee is an affinity based social network that is quickly building steam worldwide" by @Renée 🐝 Cormier
Let's keep on writing stories on beBee ! buzz on !23/03/2017 #46 Devesh Bhatt#45 so you are passionate about it.
a) not necessary can be a fundamental problem but releasing all features at once without anythig to introduce later is also a fundamental problem.
b) you are passionate about it, you have papers, its well invested genius. Can't the genius translate into a product itself? Perhaps an investor presentation.. can i help?
c)i think i am way ahead of my time and i have a few functiobally possible complete ideas. I know people lack insight and they would twist it for their own benefit leaving out the necessary in the name of competitive advantages. But i have experienced rushig in and exhausting an idea first up where i have nothing special to compete with a well funded copycat . End of the day well documented genius doesnt translate into well executed business.
Now you could be satisfied with 100+ professionals on Li and Quora rather than be dissatisfied with bebee or chose to find another way for the genius. Maybe i have false hope because i dont have as much experience or seen as many failures as you but i do have a working head, the real question is what next for you woth regards to these specific ideas?
Hope we catch up soon. Have a great day23/03/2017 #45 John Vaughan#44 You've got a seemingly endless well of questions, @Devesh Bhatt and - given the experience of the past year - I can't really invest all that much time in the beBee TimeWaster. Here's 3 short answers and then I'm out:
a. Your casual usage of the phrase 'not necessary' ... reveals the fundamental problem here
b. In short and in general: I get support and intelligent, informed debate from professional colleagues and 'equals' on Quora and LinkedIn. I get personal sniping and some incredibly uninformed, unjustified partisan pushback from marketeers and promotionalists on beBee. BTW: This is pretty much the consensus among folks I've talked with in the professional community and on LinkedIn.
c. "why persist with suggestions once they are rejected?" Because persistence is an attribute of both professionalism and genius. I have reams of papers, conference presentations & concepts from the 80's that were waaaaay ahead of their time (http://www.jcvtcs.com/papers-tcs/index-papers-tcs.html). I discovered long ago that relatively few people are insightful enough to 'get it' the first time around (tho they're actually the worthwhile 'keepers').
But I do this shit because I have a pioneer's passion for it. In many ways, it is its own reward. That - and meeting up with other people who get it, too.
I have no illusions about 'rescuing beBee', tho a fair number of my 100+ professional engagements have been predicated on 'fixing someone else's mess'. Those situations, too, are often fraught: For example - The people who created the mess in the first place are usually still in charge, with an emotional investment in their fuckups.
Hey, Devesh. That topic is a friggin' BOOK. Educating beBee is not my hobby. See ya around.23/03/2017 #44 Devesh Bhatt#43 i think that bebee has been proactive with me. One very serious issue still persists but the solution to the rest has been fruitful. I think i am heard
I believe you are heard too, just that your suggestions are not being accepted. I am no expert but as a user i certainly like some of them, i find a few of them to be critical once the number of users grow.
I have three questions :
a) why introduce a feature when it is not necessary. The threats maybe that it may not be possible to introduce it later as the system would not make it possible or the lack of it maybe damaging?
b) do you get the same levels of responses on other platforms. What is better, being unheard or being questioned?
c) why persist with suggestions once they are rejected? It is bebees loss if you come out as the right person later. Are you trying to market yourself as the man for rescuing bebee?23/03/2017 #43 John Vaughan#40 @Devesh Bhatt poses 3 observations:
1. "so you are basically an observer and a user who is unhappy with bebee."
JV> I'd characterize myself as a Professional UX analyst with considerable experience in the socialNet arena, who actively uses - and comments - on several socialNet platforms. And has done so for years. Whatever characterization works for you.
2. "The persistence to share unhappiness this is greater with bebee."
JV> beBee is undeniably one of the more 'self-promotional, criticism-averse' socialNets. It's an environment that is not-created by me.The dominoes fall from that.
3. "And as a user you find quora to be a cut above the rest. Right?"
JV> Quora offers quality experience for the types of professional info and engagement that interest me, especially inasmuch as LinkedIn is moving away from it's commitment to those attributes, and beBee doesn't really offer them at all. Actually, the brief thumbnail 'the Quora advantage' offered in the above article is pretty good, tho imo inadequate. Net/Net: Quora fulfills a need (for me) that I don't find answered elsewhere.
I recently commented on a UI problem I encountered in Quora, providing guidance towards a solution. A participant in that thread commented, "I hope you guys are paying attention @Quora here."
Wouldn't that be nice if it happened more often on other socialNets?23/03/2017 #37 Javier 🐝 beBeebeBee benefits for your Personal Brand
1.- You can reach always to all your followers
2.- You can share your work on beBee through any social network ( Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc )
3.- You can easily manage your blog, without being an IT expert.
4.- Your followers will get your stories through email. Any reader can subscribe to your blog easily and you can target them anytime.
5.- You can communicate through Live Buzz.23/03/2017 #36 John Vaughan#21 One may believe that they have a 'legitimate right' to self-promotion, @Milos Djukic, but then there's also ... observable reality. In context.
#28 @Devesh Bhatt sez "... for once you could share anything right that bebee has done? Perhaps a feature that can outgrow competitors?"
a) That's not my job.
b) If it were, then I would be compensated for it.
Before we all get our panties in a twist:
I have a career that demonstrates my ability to provide professional-caliber solutions to professional-grade clients. Common-sense observation: You can't provide solutions unless you've first identified problems.
Enjoy more solutions at https://jcvtcsblog.wordpress.com/23/03/2017 #35 John Vaughan#20 "5 beBee Competitive Advantages That Will Make You Fall in Love With the Site on Day One" sez @Javier 🐝 beBee.
(Comment #20 actually lists 7 things, tho at least a couple of them are just clarifications.)
1. Having 'GROUPS' is not unique - or original - or even particularly sell-executed. It's standard and it's okay.
2. Other sites (specifically LinkedIn) are more effective in supporting JOB-SEEKING. LI's value in this arena is reflected in the fact that it is often the go-to shortcut for job on many recruitment sites.
3. 'Personal BRAND' tools ... pretty muelse
4. VOICE - This is pretty much the definition of a generic socialNet
5. REACH all your followers - ditto
The above doesn't need to be reacted to defensively. It's a fairly sober, clear, and even-handed assessment of claims that are presented in beBee's marketing blurb as 'competitive advantages'. The list is of competitive attributes, but I I don't perceive all of them as purported advantages. Nonetheless, I'd be intrigued to see someone make credible arguments for the claims of superiority ... beyond the fact that these features exist.23/03/2017 #34 Marisa Fonseca DinizNetworking can not be considered a way of just aggregating multiple people on the network without much purpose, as that is exactly what happens with some networks, like LinkedIn, for example. Facebook is a social network, which many users use as a professional, I can not deny is a good network to sell products to final consumers, but selling direct products to companies is a disaster. The beBee in turn manages to keep close to users as the same purposes close and interacting with each other as if they are all part of the same family. I use other smaller professional networks, just because they are directed to common interests, such as startups, construction, blogs and writers.23/03/2017 #33 Ali Anani#30 Dear @siraj shaik- in response to your comment I shall copy and paste the comment dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit wrote on my last buzz "Put Your Head Deep in Your Pocket".

Unfortunately, Linkedin did not live up to the deal initially, after it was bought by Microsoft new rules were enforced there. At beBee you have the freedom to share your articles without being hampered by rules that change all the time and this I call fidelity. Too bad, few people have yet to realize that LinkedIn is losing good users because of the lack of effective methodologies. The trend is in a few months or years maybe the network become a major disaster in the market.

There is a huge payoff for being with a strong woman. They are usually willing to take on a lot of responsibility, they get things done and in times of crisis, while everyone else is running around like their hair is on fire, strong women have it all under control. The downside, of course, is that if you are a weak or insecure man, you will resent them for it.20/03/2017 #2 Tausif MundrawalaVery few could muster enough courage to live life on their own terms and if they could there are hindrances in the form of toxic people. It won't be easy for you to raise your children all alone. You being a successful mom which indicates that you had been communicating well with your children. People tend to pretend to be an excellent parent but they didn't even make an attempt talking to their children.20/03/2017 #1 Harvey LloydI raised two very strong daughters. They are type A pragmatic decision makers. Never really gave thought to them getting married, just wanted them to claim their piece of the dream if you will. I remember each son-in-law asking for their hand. I warned them, no literally warned them, they are tough type A personalities and if you think that you will work through ego on them, you will have a challenge. If you choose to make it physical they will be the least of your worries, i like jail food.
It wasn't long before the change they thought they would exact came down to them changing. One of them had done something and asked, did she want him to sleep on the sofa? She said i am at whether sleeping in the house. Don't be presumptuous. They are both happily married, and yes he slept on the sofa.
Good luck with your new adventure. Keep in mind on new adventures it's difficult to determine the difference between fear and excitement.
- What are some tips for getting featured in LinkedIn Publisher Channels?
Many have been struggling to get even 30 views on LinkedIn Pulse. (Frankly, I have given up on it I will post one more post so that the one post that shows up in my profile is relevant to my company's core services. I elected to share my LinkedIn Group Leader and Group Member Tips here as, on LinkedIn, no one would ever see them.)
While some like me are abandoning Linkedin Publisher, others are succeeding. For example, Anders Liu-Lindberg just shared that his post is featured on not 1, not 2 but THREE channels today.
I have invited him to come to here and join in the discussion. If anyone knows him, please encourage him to join us.
Clearly he knows something that a lot of us don't know.
If anyone else has a similar success story to share, please let us know and pass on some tips.
Comments23/03/2017 #10 Anne Thornley-Brown#9 Those are some phenomenal statistics. How long ago did you join LinkedIn? One thing that may be helping you is topical news that is very relevant to specific market niches.
I have written posts about bias as well but I have never shared them on LinkedIn, except for one I did about the events industry. The culture in Canada is such that addressing issues of race and bias could backfire so I am cautious. I have a number of corporate clients and business colleagues on my LinkedIn network. Maybe the culture in the UK is very different.
I have addressed some issues related to bias in the Step into the Spotlight group and I know that this makes some members uncomfortable. At some point, you just have to keep it real.
I have tended to share that type of content on my personal Twitter and Facebook accounts and I restrict distribution to friends not acquaintances. I also discuss controversial issues in some of the private Jamaican Facebook groups but not the Jamaican LinkedIn Groups.
Nice that Usain Bolt liked your post. I have mentioned him a couple of times in blog posts about the marketing of brand Jamaica. I started a discussion about him in Step into the Spotlight a while back and today when I discovered there are other Jamaicans in Step into the Spotlight I was inspired to pull my thoughts together in a beBee post. I actually shared it in a LinkedIn status update because it was about branding.22/03/2017 #9 Carol Stewart#8 As @Anne Thornley-Brown mentions, I have had relatively good results getting my articles featured in Pulse channels (and some have been featured in more than one and I have had some that have been Editors Picks).
Having done a count yesterday, 41 out of 77 have been featured. As I mentioned in the LinkedIn group, I don't do anything in particular that I am aware of, other than write for my target audience about issues that affect them (that and pray for inspiration :-) ) .
I share them on Facebook (personal, business and my group) and Tweet them. I don't share in LinkedIn groups but will share them on my wall. The latest one I published was on Saturday and has had 107418 views, 6064 likes, 899 comments and 576 shares, and has been the most read to date.
I often use topical news issues to get my message across, e.g., my last one was about unconscious bias and I used the Prof Robert Kelly interview where his kids interrupted, to deliver the message. Another example, last year after the Olympics, I wrote one called Knowing When to Quit: A Leadership Lesson from Usain Bolt (Usain himself shared it).
I don't have a set day when I publish, although the last 3 have been on a Saturday and were featured.22/03/2017 #8 Anne Thornley-Brown#2 Yes I have tried tweeting to @linkedineditors and I have had no luck. Like Anders, @Katyan Roach and Carol Stewart have done really well there. I will invite Carol to join in. She here. She has participated in the version of this discussion in the original LinkedIn Group.20/03/2017 #7 John White, MBAAs far as an overall content strategy for a blogger that is writing on business related topics, I think there is still value in LinkedIn Pulse. I've kept writing over there. Like @Javier 🐝 beBee says, bloggers should not put all their eggs in one basket. Instead, cast a wide net and publish on various sites. Most sites will allow you to syndicate content, so you have nothing to lose by publishing the same post on several sites. I usually try to mix it up. In other words, I will post on one site and then wait a month or two before I repost the same article to another site. As for LinkedIn Pulse, the reach is not nearly what it used to be, but I've had some articles do relatively well there in 2017. It seems that the better my blogs are doing on LinkedIn the higher my activity is on beBee, Twitter, Inc., etc. So, while I will never use LinkedIn as my only blogging platform, I will continue to keep it in the rotation.20/03/2017 #6 Anders Liu-Lindberg#5 @Jared Wiese, 🐝 adding VALUE & RESULTS they still send out daily/weekly summaries to all members about group activity and I believe this is what is catching most people's attention since the traction often comes with a few days delay. I agree it would be much better if there were more notifications.20/03/2017 #5 Jared Wiese, 🐝 adding VALUE & RESULTS#4 Thanks for the update, @Anders Liu-Lindberg!
Well, you are at least doing something right consistently to be featured occasionally. I get that there is no guarantee.
Interesting that you are having success in groups, since they no longer notify commenters - only the author.20/03/2017 #4 Anders Liu-LindbergLike also pointed out by @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian then there's no magic formula. I used the tweet strategy and in fact have created a twitter profile for this purpose alone in 2017. I have before been featured heavily and to date have 44 articles featured out of 137. However, I published 27 articles prior to my first ever feature and since start of 2016 I have only been featured four times (including the two latest ones). So it's erratic at best but it seems like once you're in the chance of multiple features is higher. Now with all that said being featured is no guarantee of success. My latest feature currently stands at 55 views whereas the previous one already had 250+ at the same time. I've found that LinkedIn Groups is the best way to continue building an audience and for my articles in 2017 I keep an average of 1,000+ views and have good engagement too not least in increasing my following.20/03/2017 #3 Jared Wiese, 🐝 adding VALUE & RESULTSHere's what he tweeted once, for his last article:

It is a mistake to think that Brazil comes down to football, Amazon, Feijoada and coffee, perhaps this is the image that Facebook has passed to you. I invite @Aleta to read a little more of the economy of Brazil. Sincerely, I was amazed by this response, because I participate in various international business networks, and I have contact with several professionals in your country, Australia, and they all know a lot about Brazil, they have never mentioned such restricted knowledge at all.
As for Facebook, I believe that it does not depend on their position of disclosure, not all Brazilian companies are interested in publicizing their brand there, regardless of the size of each one.23/02/2017 #13 Aleta Curry#12 I don't know very much about Brazil's economy - I can sum up my knowledge of your country in about four words: futbol, Amazon, feijoada and coffee* - but I would have thought that the economy supported enough small-to-medium business that Facebook would capitalise on that.
We have found Facebook highly effective for affinity marketing, for example, and we can target advertising to people who would (probably) be interested, by age group, by location, that sort of thing.
I should probably write a post about this.
*Okay, that's an exaggeration, but you get my drift.23/02/2017 #12 Marisa Fonseca Diniz#9 I believe @aleta-curry that facebook should work better outside Brazil, because here in the country the companies that use facebook the most to advertise products and services are in the area of digital marketing, the others use specific professional networks in their business segments.22/02/2017 #10 Aleta Curry#5 This from @Mike Rana:
Furthermore, it's up to the users of a network to actualize the purpose of said network and conduct themselves appropriately.
Yes, yes, and yes! - although it is also up to the site owners to create an environment where this happens, and to monitor it.22/02/2017 #9 Aleta Curry#4 I think your points are excellent, @Marisa, no argument from me.
I can tell you that I stay very focused on Facebook, I don't stray, I don't get drawn into arguments. I don't get a lot of scam and call girl posts, and by the time I see them and go to 'report', someone else has beaten me to it and the prostitutes are almost always already deleted.
What I did want to point out was that Facebook's small business interface and marketing tools have turned out to be extremely helpful; something I wasn't expecting.22/02/2017 #6 Javier 🐝 beBee#5 @Mike Rana I agree ! Every social network is different ! https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/social-media-today
I always recomment to keep LI but explore beBee !
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/never-put-all-eggs-in-one-basket-keep-linkedin-but-explore-bebee22/02/2017 #5 Mike Rana#4 Both Facebook and LinkedIn are publicly traded companies, so profit and shareholder approval takes precedence over anything else. Should BeBee ever go public, they, too will have to abide by the same principle.
You're going to get fake accounts, scammers, and fraud on just about any network, and I would bet lunch that every social network quashes a large percentage of all three on a regular basis that we don't see. Some stuff will slip through the cracks, but that's where it's up to us users to bring the abuses to them.
Furthermore, it's up to the users of a network to actualize the purpose of said network and conduct themselves appropriately. (I.E. keep the political rants off LinkedIn) Let's not forget that Facebook, LinkedIn, and even BeBee have their different uses and different environments.22/02/2017 #4 Marisa Fonseca DinizIn my humble opinion, facebook initially suggested the approach of peoples, but I do not know if the same happens in Brazil happens in other countries, the network has lost focus and became a circus, where there are several false news, political demonstrations, biased attacks , Fakes, scammers, prostitution, envious and fraudulent business advertising. The same has happened on LinkedIn, where it lost focus on business, professional networking among others.
From the moment that the owners of these networks see only the profitability of their shares in the stock exchange, the initial focus has been lost and now everything runs free with no blocking, where everything is allowed. Social and professional networks that maintain this course without a certain objective tend to be forgotten over time, that is, they disappear from the map.
The general dissatisfaction on the part of many people opting for networks with a more determined focus is social or professional, and in this case I opted for these others like Bebee. Because businesses need to flow all over the world, but need to have quality, I do not want to have my business or my company, for example, associated with a network where users are more concerned about exhibitionism than content.
