    #27 I don't know much about Trump bots, but you surely have a reason to doubt the account if they have a lot of numbers or random letters in their account and I see thousands of it, they follow me too, I usually block them. Social media allows people create fake profiles, buy followers, they are not checking who's registering. A lot of bots verified their accounts for credibility as well, so it's very dangerous to see that social media verifies everyone who applies

    #19 No, Teyana, with Russia, we can say for sure that any manipulation of Microsoft would not be via the investment chain because that would be impractically expensive. Could subversion of executive or managers be undertaken via blackmail or bribery or other tricks of the intelligence trade? Perfectly possible. But the most likely scenario would be to use paid agents to pose as multiple LinkedIn users and employ the tools of reporting to harass and drive the targets from the platform. I have no doubt that could happen since the management of LinkedIn has long shown itself to be incompetent and indifferent in the administration of its own TOC. But no idiot, not even the Russian government, would spend $75 BILLION to accomplish what could probably be done by hiring a cadre of agents provocateur for less than a million dollars or so. To say "you cannot be sure" is to foment silly paranoia and thereby undermine your own case. My suggestion to you and Lisa is to stick to what makes sense. Just saying. Cheers! :-)

    #15 Pliease see my response to Lisa Gallagher, which has to do with the
    speculation the Russian government is exerting influence via the investment chain. I have no doubt that some elements of Russian Intelligence my be employing agents to target Russian dissidents and even members or ex-members of US Intelligence. But if one foments silly and fantastic scenarios, that actually works against the rational expose of those who attack freedom of political expression. Cheers!
    Phil Friedman
    13/08/2017 #17 Phil Friedman
    #14 Sorry, Lisa but may, might, possibly in this case doesn't work.

    The reported total number of MSFT shares is 5,675,533,773. It's generally thought that in order to control a publicly traded company, one needs to control about 30% of the voting shares. Which in the case of Microsoft would be approximately 1,700,000,000 shares or, at a share price of $44, roughly $75 BILLION.

    I have little doubt that some elements of the Russian government might like to get some Russian dissidents booted off LinkenIn, might even use paid agents to make trouble on the platform, but to allege that influence could be exerted by Russian "investors" is fantastic and naive.

    For to target such dissidents via the investment chain would be far too costly for even a sovereign nation, given the minor nature of the objective. And I think it does nobody any good to spin fantastic speculations in these circumstances. Especially, when there is plenty of real danger to be anxious over. Cheers!

    13/08/2017 #14 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    #13 Phil, no... I'm not saying MS is controlled by Russian investors. Is it possible that Microsoft may cater to some investors over other, possibly? Their list of investors is so large, I wouldn't even know if a company was from Russia or not. When I hear Russian trolls and companies (Linkedin or not) in the same sentence, it's possibly too easy to think they may have a stake in things.

    It's very possible that they are being unwittingly manipulated by Russian Intelligence Trolls and that makes sense. It's sad that Russia becomes so suspect in my mind after all the dealings they've been involved with across Europe, Asia and now the US. By dealings, I mean under-handed, hard to trace. You made a good point.

    I hope our Country with the help of Mueller finds answers to many questions people have because I think it's getting to all of us. Everything appears suspect now and it shouldn't.

    #12 Lisa Gallagher > " I have to wonder whose invested in LI (their large investors) are some from Russia?? That could play a role in why they are making the decisions they make?"

    With all due respect, Lisa, have you not heard that Microsoft purchased LinkedIn somewhat more than a year ago for roughly $26 Billion? Are you saying that Microsoft is controlled by Russian investors or what?

    Don't you think that, if the allegations made in this article are true, it is more likely a matter of LI apparatchiks being unwittingly manipulated by Russian intelligence trolls through complaints and reporting? As LI's record concerning selective and knee-jerk responses to complaints is truly abysmal? And many users have in the past, used reporting for purposes of harassment and surreptitious attack upon those whom they don't like.

    #14 reverse engineering a platform is fascinating, the team has to put themselves in the shoes of the several generation of solutions architects,mprojects managers and coders who made LI evolved from its initial state. It appear that users enegagement caanot be all monitored, because your audience is not entirely made of followers. Making it a metric makes nonsense say former LI collaborators. The most important metric on LI is the conversion of suers into clients to calculate ROI.

    I think new tool for social media and digital marketing analysis, automation and proactive workflows are the next avenue. You cannot change FB, LI or twitter or any platforms, but you can perform an autopsy to analyze the causes: LOL ...pick your choice: a) death 2) dysfunctions & disease 3) the workflows etc...
    Affordable, not apps, but web servers S.a.a.S, are the key to override issues and master these platforms. Today these platforms decide of your fate....tomorrow you can have technology serving your goals, not theirs. And that time is coming sooner that you think. And it doesn't rely on API management always. My humble opinion..i am not debating here... Just because performance relies on quality content and affinity propagation.

    #14 LOL thanks for the compliment, but i doubt so. \\\\\\\\\\\\\All the programming they do at LI as a specific purpose, l imitating users was a demographic growth issue they knew they would hit at some point. The conception itself wasn't affinity oriented, which is the core advantage of beBee. LI was initially created for 10 000+ employers that needed a global reach HR tool for funneling competition's candidate, then they aimed to democratized towards SMBs, then make individual think they need to be in the database...and they succeed: 430 M+ jumped, including me. Not being on LinkedIn is like refusing to learn english and code your program only with Olmeque's language.

    I was thinking of....reverse engineering LinkedIn to better understand the LI mind set, and the inner secrets of its coding, if it does make a sense and what that sense could be? Everything works for a reasons and the opposite too, the journey is about tp find how, and not why...human factor was probably there when compiling code with or without a master solution architects and with what the manage the core project management. I wouldn't be surprised to discover wonderful gems of mismanagement and lack of prospective vision. It is not because it is big that it wasn't done with common sense. Behind the scenes views and hints reveals always good things to know. After you just feel like Simon Pegg in a comedy....Not surprised but caught in dire straights. LOL.

    I've been testing LI updates with and without images. Updates without images do seem to work better, but not a ton better.

    A great post - thank you. For what it's worth, I have been using a tool called Missinglettr which creates LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook status posts from a blog that you have written elsewhere. In short, you write a blog on your website (it needs an RSS feed) and Missinglettr will create up to twelve short posts from your content, which it drips onto LinkedIn over the course of a year. This is getting a lot more engagements than posting full articles on LinkedIn, but a side effect is that the number of people wanting to connect with me on LinkedIn has shot up dramatically. You may well find this of use to you too. Here's my link to Misslinglettr http://bit.ly/PCmissinglettr

    I agree with you, Anne, that status updates and/or discussion-related posts, and/or curating content results in higher engagement on LI than writing anything of Pulse. I know a lot of us here like to cross-channel pollinate by posting beBee buzz as status updates on LI. This seems to be working fairly well.

    Prospects are unrevealed targets in marketnsegments that will be processed through funneling (succession of workflows) up to a purchase act.mThat applies to my way to doing marketing. Which might differ to others marketers when they market products or themselves. I also consider a former customer a prospect with respect, because we must work hard to deserve the renewal of his/her trust for the next purchase act. Many competitors consider their customers their property, and that is good for me...because customer loyalty is the hardest thing ever to keep alive and not to conquer.

    #9 Well I am going to disagree with you on this point "Followers ain't your prospects. They are friends, competitors, passing by who pressed a button." If I want to engage with friends and family, I do that in person or on my personal Twitter and Facebook accounts, not from my business accounts. I expressed my feelings about this here:

    #8 in fact, to my own opinion, followers base does not matter, your customers are rarely a watching crowd. Audience on the other hand are anonymous ones that matters a lot, and you needs to address to them on a million scale basis. Funneling is important and mass marketing techniques and tools can help to convert them. Most people get confused when you have to qualify a prospect base. Followers ain't your prospects. They are friends, competitors, passing by who pressed a button.

    Very good piece! Every obsevation is true. However everyone must recall that linkedIn is a , a)recruiting tool biggest database in the world b) made for 10 000 + employees firms c) a paid-per-promotion website.
    Do the maths, most is all about self centered promotions personal or corporate, some beleive the branding is free, while in fact you must pay. Social sellng doesnt come for free. LI is a cash machine. Money matters first. A global SM strategy brings results based on affinities and not only on beBee.

    Thanks for this astute analysis, Jo. It's unfortunate for LinkedIn users that the site appears to be too little, too late -- as online video first emerged over 20 years ago, with YouTube coming on the scene in 2005. So what the heck took them so long? Also, why doesn't LI offer a live streaming mobile app, like beBee?

    Jim, that is an excellent observation. Its strange that linkedin's alorithm writers have decided to treat something shared from an external site as bei g more eadily spread than an intetnal post. Whoever did that may end up a prize of a resume writing course.

    Great Article. I have been a member of LinkedIn for a number of years and over a 1000 connections. I have found that LI Pulse has become more of a dumpsite like MySpace did. About 8 months ago, I joined beBee and slowly began transferring my articles to the Hive. I notice that my highest visit rate on LI is my lowest on beBee. I have tried many platforms, yet none of my content every began to go viral until I joined the hive. So I thank @Javier 🐝 beBee and all you fellow bees.
    I did not change anything on my part. I always promote, comment, and share others first. The difference is the community in the Hive was the first to respond in such a positive way. We all help each other, we will all read are goals.
    David B. Grinberg

    Excellent points, as usual, Jim. I strongly echo your sentiments having shared a very similar experience myself. I would just reiterate that one of the great aspects of how beBee promotes user engagement -- rather than tramples on it like LI -- is that beBee blog posts are shared with everyone in a user's network. Moreover, users are also able to share their posts on three separate hives to maximize engagement. Some of the nearly 30,000 hives have upward of 100,000 members and more worldwide. Thus, if someone is still relying on LI Pulse they will never know how much organic reach and engagement they are truly missing. Put simply, beBee Producer beats other publishing platforms hands down. Thus, it's should be a "no brainer" decision for writers/bloggers who want to amplify their message and maximize their reach: just remember this simple equation: beBee = Better Buzz!

    #23 Jim, are you talking about the difference between posting an "article" on the publishing platform (Pulse?) vs. posting an "update" in the main feed? If so, I agree that often posting updates in the feed gets you more response than articles on the publishing platform. And I have suspected for a long time that is because Pulse distribution is choked down by the algorithm, while the general feed is less restricted. And I think that opinion is consistent with the observations of major online marketers like @Candice 🐝 Galek. Cheers!
