Comments05/01/2017 #3 David B. Grinberg#2 Thanks for your reply, as always @Javier 🐝 beBee. First, just for the record, I don't recall ever seeing any social media CEOs being so candid about improvements to their platform, especially never ever on LinkedIn. Second, I've used Live Buzz several times and really like it. Thus, I'm very excited about the forthcoming improvements. That's great news! Because if I can do it with "a face only a mother could love" then it just goes to show that anyone and everyone can use this valuable feature. The buzz is already growing louder in 2017 and we are only a few days into the new year, which is a great sign of things to come! 🐝🐝✌️️🇺🇸05/01/2017 #2 Javier 🐝 beBee@David B. Grinberg live buzz needs to be improved. IT WILL BE. A big reason is because few people download the app ( we are not promoting it until we get the next fast platform). Live Buzz is only available from the app. Now most of beBee visits come from Desktop (over 60%) and mobile web (40%). Next step is launching our new platform, promoting the app, and then promoting the new and improved live buzz :).. thanks @Aleta Curry. Video is not a trend. Video is a reality if you want to attract younger professionals. LI is too boring ! beBee has a huge potential. And beBee needs our community support for growing faster !05/01/2017 #1 David B. GrinbergNice post, Aleta. You provide timely information which is most helpful. It strikes me that beBee Live Buzz has been grossly under utilized thus far. I'm wondering if anyone has answers as to why this is the case, especially with the growing popularity of live video streaming? One would think this feature would still be used a lot more often. Then again, perhaps I'm missing it. You tell me? Thanks again for the good read. Keep buzzing in 2017 🐝🐝✌️️🇺🇸

Comments18/11/2016 #14 David B. Grinberg#8 Virag, when you're done conquering the boroughs don't forget about Long Island (my home town is Roslyn, Nassau County) and Westchester (relatives in York Town Heights, Chappaqua and Mount Kisco) -- assuming Matt agrees, of course. Keep buzzing onward and upward!
cc: @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood18/11/2016 #6 David B. GrinbergThanks for the awesome Live Buzz, Virag. I'm all nostalgic as a native NYer with friends and relatives scattered throughout Brooklyn. Your enthusiasm, energy and positivity shines and is uplifting. Moreover, you're a great beBee spokeswoman, being so telegenic and articulate -- especially for younger generations who can help grow membership due to growing demographics. Looking forward to more Live Buzzes from you. Keep up the great work!
Comments04/12/2016 #34 Michele Williams#33 Thanks, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. A meet & greet in NYC is a great idea. I know what you mean about the cold in PA. You have great live buzzes of your locale. Here's one in case others missed it: https://www.bebee.com/content/941954/902854 . I bet this park is even more beautiful in the snow!04/12/2016 #33 Lisa 🐝 GallagherNice video, glad you were able to meet up with @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood @Michele Williams! I would attend a Bee Meet & greet in NYC! I only live about 7 hrs or less from NYC. Michele, I probably would have been dressed like you, I live about an hour and a half SE of Erie Pa.03/12/2016 #30 Michele Williams#17 @Irene Hackett, that's a good point. The connection between social media and face-to-face on bBee is unique. When I was in SF last May, I didn't stop by linkedin. Of course, @Juan Imaz ans @Javier 🐝 beBee did and took pictures to prove it! Here's a trip down memory lane: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/sec2sv-startup-europe-comes-to-silicon-valley03/12/2016 #29 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman#23 I have a Toshiba laptop that is 6 yrs old. I bought the extended warranty when I purchased it. The hard drive went kaput in a year and a half. Toshiba replaced it for free under the warranty. I bought a new HP laptop because I wanted a larger display. I was going to sell the Toshiba but decided to keep it for when I travel. I downloaded the Win10 update and all is well. I feel I have a reliable backup laptop, just in case. I run Edge, Chrome and Firefox on all of our computers but I prefer Firefox.03/12/2016 #25 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#24 The whole basis of disruptive innovation is for new entrants to fill a space which the big player has left open, so that fits well with a no-frills approach, but reputation for quality is a design gamble because that reputation is proven over time. The Built to Last frame applied to the dotcom boom when most startups planned on being acquired by a big name player, which is called Built to Flip http://www.jimcollins.com/article_topics/articles/built-to-flip.html - ultimately maker mentality needs to be greater than marketing mentality - and as more people hear about design thinking and maker movement http://time.com/104210/maker-faire-maker-movement/ - perhaps the future may shift more to customer focused quality determination than the shallowness of product focused hype.03/12/2016 #24 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#23 Ironically enough, I still use my 2004 Fujitsu XP laptop, although I did take it off the internet, so it is for writing only.
I cannot stand the obsolescence craze. I had my first 2 phones for 6 and 7 years each. This last android stopped functioning optimally a few weeks after it was paid for, which is why I can't create live buzzes.
There is a real opportunity for a company to build lasting electronics - and for just good enough software - 97% of users only need Word97. Quite a large majority just want their computers to work and would pay for the security of them working rather than for flashy new stuff.03/12/2016 #23 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#21 Hi @Deb 🐝 Helfrich & @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman - the good news is that I originally thought it was my operating system at fault, until @Mamen 🐝 Delgado mentioned that the video does not play on Safari.
I bought my IBM laptop back in 2004 and I saw no reason to to ditch my laptop which is testimony to the quality IBM applied - but that means that for last two years I have maintained Windows XP, so that is probably the constraint on my Firefox (which is up-to date).
When Lenovo acquired the IBM Thinkpad brand in 2005 I wonder how many Lenovo's I would have had to replace - because whatever and whenever I buy a new laptop - I guarantee no manufacture dares to build a product that can last over 12 years. I am sure obsolescence is now built into machines - just as Microsoft need users like me to upgrade quickly.
It also shows me that 64bit on Windows 10 is just an insane amount of luxury that to date I have not missed out on - though I realize the days are now numbered in how long I can continue to use Windows XP and a part from the odd script errors - it is cute and nostalgic to still be on 32bit.
The fact that Google Chrome works OK, means I no longer miss out on beBee video buzzes. I will sad to retire my tried and trusted IBM laptop and 12 years for a laptop is triple a life-time in dog years.
- Producer03/12/2016Before Producing That Video, Ask Yourself These Three QuestionsLike most marketers, you realize that videos can be super powerful. If you haven’t realized that yet, check out these video statistics. But if you already know that the value of one minute of video is equal to 1.8 million words, then before you...
Comments09/12/2016 #12 Aleta CurryI've been asking several questions about the ways in which business use videos lately, so this is timely. Love the comments thus far, but I've got a far simpler take on this. I use video because people * don't * read! They don't. I don't know why they don't, but they just don't.
Okay, I've started a response, but it's getting way too long for a comment, so I'll write a response buzz instead. Thanks for making my brain tick, @Greg Williams.07/12/2016 #11 Greg Williams#9 Thanks Harvey for weighing in. Yes!! Video is probably the most powerful way to share your brand with the world, but that also means it is the most powerful way to destroy your brand by not executing correctly or properly strategizing about the message being shared. Good point, thanks for bringing it up.06/12/2016 #9 Harvey LloydWe have started using video as a way to connect with our clients.we are about a year into actual production after 2 years of finding our skill sets. In reading your post along with many others we determined that video is great! But video is also something that can change the face of your brand, in the wrong direction.
Emails, posts and words on a screen are one thing, video engages more senses than just print. When you activate these senses your video should influence them in such a way that its a very narrow outcome. Just because you think something would be nice or cute doesn't necessarily resonate with others where all senses are engaged.
With printed materials, i can imagine or insert the other senses from my own experience. With video, in today's world, the expectation is that video will deliver on all of the senses. Audio, consistent color, presentation and communications are all expected within the delivery envelope.
Welcome @Greg Williams and your post is on point.

Comments18/11/2016 #16 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#15 thanks @Andrew 🐝 Goldman and I didn't want to get in trouble haha. They are one of our 2 major employers in our County. Largest employer in our County, I think. So, I will go to another spot I can get photos at least. If we could zoom with video, I could take a video from a different spot.18/11/2016 #9 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#7 @David Navarro López, you made a great point. That thought didn't cross my mind until I read your comment! Now, I am back to being ticked off lol. The parking space appeared public but Im not sure. I will take my husbands truck to drive back by it. I'm curious now if I missed some sign?? There were trucks pulling in at the end of the road through a Guarded gate but that wasn't connected to the parking space. All I saw were signs that in one row that said "No motorcycles park here." Yes we are recorded everywhere!!18/11/2016 #7 AnonymousI find is quite ironical that one can not tape things that are at public spaces, while your own privacy is continuously taped, stored, recorded, and much more. What kind of land of freedom is this? To be scared for making an innocent taping seems to me something is not right.18/11/2016 #5 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#4 Well it could have been worse, the guard who ran over to me said if the Sargeant would have seen me, he would have taken my phone. OK... lesson learned but post a big, darn sign to warn people. I will take photos from a vantage point that is legal, even though I had no idea it wasn't legal to be there. I just wanted to show this large refinery that resides in our small town. I wish this video wasn't up.. I'm not fond of is and it did say it deleted on my end? @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín is there someone that can still delete this on your end? Just this video.

As Lance said, don't hold and drive- I've tried that and it's very hard and not safe lol. Just turning the camera off is hard. I need clap on, clap off for the camera haha
