    Why learn a Star Wars language? We're glad you asked, laserbrain! Because you can write privately in public, annoy grownups and win football games. Yes really. And you took Spanish in school instead of Huttese. Ya big geek.

    When people here the terms "Big Data" and "Analytics" they fail to grasp the impact because it sounds too technical, but it's really simple. It comes down to basic research: gather data, see what it tells you about trends/movement, report. Big business - especially pharma, marketing/ad firms, but many others - use it to great success. No surprise Trump';s campaign used it and used it well..

    Polls can be scientific if done right, but it's also personal: you have to approach people, and that can affect your perception. Plus, they can lie (and did).

    What this cycle proved was that Clinton's people suppressed anything negative in favor of spin. You can use positive spin in some arenas, but in politics on a massive scale it's not useful. Note: The data said otherwise, and they never redirected tactics.

    #BigDataAnalytics won.

    #1 Well, this should teach people that the data doesn't lie, and there's only so much spin you can do. Better to read it, absorb the impact, and adjust. They were in constant denial, and I think it's for two reasons:

    1. The typical managerial mistake of "we've always done it this way." They relied too heavily on polls and biased and/or inexperienced pollsters. They didn't take advantage of new technologies.

    They criticized the LA Times poll (which was consistently correct), and it's because it wasn't changing test populations. It stuck to the same sample 3000. Why? That's an old scientific/medical practice of following a population for a certain segment of time (in this case, a year) and watching shifts/trends. SCIENCE

    2. Discomfort with new technology. This is what got Clinton into trouble in the first place: forcing State Dept to change its business practices because she was uncomfortable with the modern computer and system they had in place. She did the same with the campaign: surrounded herself with people who also did things the "old fashioned" way and didn't embrace tech/data as had Obama.

    For the stats and data nerd like me, I feel vindicated today!

    Also I agree with Harvey #31 below: I believe there are many people that would come to beBee just to engage with like minded people that may not have an agenda or business goals but like discussing business or learning from the experts here on the site.
    Harvey Lloyd

    I have to agree with all that you have said here, and would add that i experienced the two platforms as you stated.

    But would like to encourage a different group to join the BeBee experience.

    Many of the posts of help suggest that one site is better for different goals, or how to post to develop your brand, sales or goals. I am not on of these folks. I also believe (No data to support.) that there are a great many who just wish to connect with like minded folks, no agenda.

    LI presented me with an opportunity to strike and find these folks. Unfortunately it did not work out. I am not a computer genius nor understand the motives or coding that didnt allow me to find like minded folks. BeBee however has been an emersive experience where i have met and shared with folks across boulders many thoughts and ideas that have expanded my being.

    @David Grinberg keep in mind that many folks are looking for professional connections with no agenda of brand or sales.

    BeBee is an awesome platform that represents a welcoming affinity atmosphere where all can find a voice. Most importantly i dont feel like i need to become a programmer to find these like minded folks.

    @David B. Grinberg Just sharing this comment I made earlier on LinkedIn... copy & Paste Hahaha

    " What beBee offers, is an opportunity for fair-play. You get to share your words to the largest audience of relevant groups via hives, and can be assured that it will be see. This is the first step in any writer sharing his/her words. If your audience does not see you, you have not started the race. Maybe some will see and find your words are relevant, maybe they will comment, and maybe they will share via facebook, twitter, email, LinkedIn, bebee and even WhatsApp. This I think gives the writers and bloggers an easy opportunity to distribute as desired. The other great point to note is the diverse sets of information available in groups. Ever checked out an engineering hive - you should give it a try! What about the Foodies hive - believe me when I say, there is no need to hunt for a cookbook before checking it out. Having a rough day and need some inspiration, well you WILL be inspired - I can vouch for that!

    As much as the words 'professional' are touted, one should remember, 'professionals' are people with lives. There is no need to get the same generic offering from one person all the time when on a platform with a carefully planned layout which makes selecting a genre quite easy.

    From my own experience, when I get onto bebee, I'm energized. Thanks again for this great post on bebee David B. Grinberg"

    @David B. Grinberg..had to delete half my response..hahaha, still on mobile...
    But you have captured so much here I hope you will consider doing a YouTube video for sharing. You do have a voice for it.
    The live streams are good also, but it may take about ten streams to get the message out , and shared via Twitter and Facebook...just an observation
    Donna-Luisa Eversley
    15/10/2016 #25 Donna-Luisa Eversley
    @David B. Grinberg as @Randy Keho says maybe you can do a speaking tour, or maybe you can tape on the video twitter and share..
    The clarity with the message within is brilliantly presented as indicated on one of my two comments on LinkedIn. Bebee does give the blogger a much better starting point . For bloggers who have built a following for a long time in one place , change may be tough. It's important though to note that many persons have different reasons for electing to stay in one location, for example LinkedIn, and it probably works for them. New bloggers need to hear about beBee, and I think experience the affinity.
    What sets us apart is the real multi lingual offering of bebee and the open network sharing. Another huge plus not to be taken for granted is the easy and welcoming access to @Javier beBee @Juan Imaz.. the starters and owners of the platform. I sincerely hope these guys will always be accessible, and present.
