    #33 Yes @Federico ๐Ÿ รlvarez San Martรญn, is there any relevant post to video buzzing ? If i didn't dream @Matt ๐Ÿ Sweetwood initiated a videobuzz contest in februray 2017, didn't he ? I think it is a brillant idea, but we need to get people ( not only brand ambassadors) excited about it. 1) first step would be to have a post from you or Matt in the e-embassy project about videobuzzing 2) a beBee video tutorial from PR/com team on how to use the feature with a team's example 3)If @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee, @Juan Imaz & @Matt ๐Ÿ Sweetwood want a worldwide massive adoption of the tool and a viral campaign on al social media: well put an incentive on (from shipped tee-shirts to freemium for a limited time and range metrics acquired per personae).

    #10 @stephan metral ๐Ÿ Innovative Brand Ambassador, I use my weekly, Hive๐ŸTalk publication to promote beBee, bees and hives. I also, create my own graphics, using bebee's logos, etc. In addition, I promote beBee on both of my personal blogs, both of my Twitter accounts, and LinkedIn
    I am open to using my available resources to further promote beBee.

    My idea is to leverage @Matt ๐Ÿ Sweetwood idea to have a viral video streamed on the live buzz. I mean a personal video line who i am ( i am a beBee and i buzz here on { preferred topic } ) and what i love and share. Of course if you make that inviting, any viewers on all social medias would be..heehaw.. curious. Then you know what curiosity provokes...an action..believe me we all need to do that (i will do on each available language) . So @๐Ÿ Fatima Williams & @Federico ๐Ÿ รlvarez San Martรญn 1) i will post a viral video 2) i write an article on which new social media account to open 3) based on @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian tweetpack idea i will make a tutorial on how to automated Post/schedules on Platforms that are using API triggers. 4) another one on what are the best time to post in regards of Social medias. Of course i ll do all that in the e-embassy's hive impacting only 31 out of 140 !

    I think the content of our buzzes matter more than anything else. Another factor would be the engagement of our fellow bees in the discussion which takes place with every buzz. Our presence here on this platform speaks volumes about us a person and how we respond. I agree with @Harvey Lloyd that people are genuine here. I really enjoy reading different buzzes on different topics to the extent that I have not completed my well thought buzzes.

    I enjoy reading your buzzes but this one was special because the very first line resonates well with me. Thanks for sharing,@Aleta Curry. Congratulations for being a beBee brand ambassador.

    Thatโ€™s very well expressed, @Harvey Lloyd, and Iโ€™m hearing it echoed by others as well. What Iโ€™m being given to understand is that one would do well to take notice of the statistics but with caution, theyโ€™re part of the story, not the whole tale.

    Mysterious --yet who can deny it's tangibility?

    ...of Cartesian abscissa/ordinate intersection...
    ...what Euclidean plane can explain...
    ...the shrinking distance between the crow's nest of the mast...

    ...or the inverse --quite inseparable from her shivering return?

    Interesting stats @Aleta Curry. I tend to use a few different platforms but I'm not an avid watcher of my 'stats'. I do love when people engage in conversation in the comments because to me it only enhances my writing and user experience. I've met many great people in the comments and have participated in some great discussions. And it's always exciting when something in the comments may be the catalyst for someone to write their first post. It's been a rewarding experience for me - both here and on the other platforms I use. Like @Franci๐ŸEugenia Hoffman said "it's the camaraderie that's appealing." I couldn't agree more. Thanks for tagging me by the way!
    Harvey Lloyd
    23/03/2017 #43 Harvey Lloyd
    I believe we all use social media for different reasons. From marketing to just plain ole writing. The one thing i have noticed with BeBee is that the writers in their own way take an interest in writing so that you can grow. Difficult to explain as it all comes in many forms, but you know it when it is missing.

    I have experienced on other platforms the screaming like Madison Square Gardens on New year's Eve., to intellectual speak that is really of no consequence.

    Bebee and the folks worldwide seem to be genuine in most cases. As to counts or relevants i sense they don't tell enough of the story.

    Thanks for the tag

    #38 That's wonderful, @Jacqueline Randall

    I'm guessing growth is good, but I'm not sure it'll be anything like the way it was in Spain per capita, but I'd love it if we saw that kind of astronomical growth in the USA. Well, I wouldn''t *totally* love it, because items flow by in my stream quite quickly enough now, but it would be thrilling.

    Still, I saw in an article somewhere where beBee was predicted to be the next unicorn startup, so either somebody knows something, or somebody's being terribly optimistic.

    How about it, @Matt ๐Ÿ Sweetwood? Can we have some stats on how beBee is doing in the USA?

    Just because I am in a different space does not mean I can argue against this, this is the reality of the market of mass attention and I accept it as condition of this age, so it is that I make the following proposition.

    I will seek to bring a student to beBee who is absolute and total in his dedication and mindset to personal brand.

    In doing so, what he represents in belief and investment in personal branding, will also become the bridge for me between this learning space at beBee and my offline learning space at HMC.

    I will provide an introductory buzz about him, but I also welcome all of my friends at beBee now to ask some questions and then I will present an interview with him and at that point, he will become a part of this community.

    How does that sound? If you are all agreeable message me your questions you want this fervent student of personal branding to answer and I will begin to initiate the introductory buzz and then the interview buzz and then with him in person here as an active beBee member.

    Branding oneself is not an easy task to achieve. It needs regular nurturing in order to put oneself forth in front of an entire world. Not only regularly commenting and reading one's buzzes, one should even try to encourage others to present their best to this universe. I am glad to be a part of this wonderful platform who have recognized my efforts of serious personal brand building. I have always loved helping others which is bearing fruit in the form of being a bee on beBee.

    The funny thing is i have read enough material about branding to cause brain freeze up, but this article really cleared some things up in making those connections from such diverse resources..

    #74 In the days of Google and social media @John White, MBA, I don't consider location to be personal information. As an example, I know that the current weather in Fort Collins is slightly cloudy, 12 C (53 F) ... which is why you could go for ice cream as your summer has started and the dregs of winter are still here in Montreal!
    I have been involved in complex B2B sales since 1991. One always has to develop relationships with people: both the vendor and the buyer need to feel comfortable with each other. But that doesn't mean that I want to open up to the whole world *before* we have developed a relationship!

    @John Marrett, interedting responses. You just shared with me on LinkedIn where you live and that it is snowing there. Thise are aspects of your personal life. Also, when yiou do business do you get to know the people you do business with or is 100% business. My approach to doing business is that it is done best when you build relationships and get to know each other. For me, I don't like to do business with people that won't make any effort to get to know me. If all they are intersted in is closing me, I will take a pass.

    Thereโ€™s A BIG Difference Between Private And Personal.

    Private: confined to or intended only for the persons immediately concerned; confidential: a private meeting

    If something is โ€œprivateโ€ in your mind, itโ€™s probably not a good idea to share it on the Internetโ€ฆanywhere.

    Personal: relating to, directed to, or intended for a particular person: a personal favor; oneโ€™s personal life; a letter marked โ€œPersonal.

    When something is personal in your mind, you may share it because we are social and we do love connect with people through common interests. Bebee is about building genuine and deeper business relationships rather than business contacts.

    #52 Well, John, my neighbour, I never saw it until today. Can't say I agree completely, but I must say there are too many home-user wi-fi systems used in commercial establishments. The very fact that we are so used to Wi-Fi makes us blase about it.

    I was recently at a well-known breakfast place here in Montreal where the guest wi-fi and the POS system ran on the same, unsegregated system. I told the owner who said his nephew set it up in 15 minutes when his service provider wanted three times the price and said it would take 2 hours. He thought he was being smart.

    I would never use guest wi-fi in a mom and pop place or many franchises. Try it at Subway, there, I know the systems were properly set up

    Now, about rogue beacons....

    If you watched the (national) news over the past few days you may have heard about a Five Alarm Fire in Raleigh, NC. My friend lived in an apartment across the street from the fire and has lost nearly everything she owned. She was home at the time and barely had time to leave with her purse. Her windows busted out, bedposts/doors melted, sprinklers went off adding insult injury (but probably also saved it from getting worse) so as you can image, it's been bad. Check the link below for pictures. I'm asking for help raising money to help her with her insurance deductible and other costs that may arise that insurance won't cover. Even if you can't donate monetarily, please consider sharing with your BeBee, Facebook, LinkedIn and/or Twitter. Thank you so much.

    Belated kudos on a nice post, Susan. You are so correct. Too many people fail to appreciate and master the art of Active Listening. As famous radio/TV talk show host, Larry King and other have said (in similar iterations): I never learned anything while I was talking. That's why Active Listening is an essential element of effective communication. https://www.mindtools.com/CommSkll/ActiveListening.htm

    @Preston Vander Ven, I agree with you. Sometimes we ARE there to just listen, but often not. And on that date, I had hoped for a conversation, not a monologue. Ah well. It made for a good story -- and the food was really good.

    Great Buzz. One sided conversations are never fun, unless our purpose is to be there to listen. There were those times in my life that what I needed was a friend to listen to what I said. It was not because I wanted a response or input, I needed to just the words get of my system.

    Todd Jones
    14/03/2017 #32 Todd Jones
    "A closed mouth gathers no feet," is a maxim that I consciously try to observe after too often suffering the consequence of my own incessant, often mindless blathering. Taking my mouth out of autopilot mode is no easy task for a gregarious extrovert. I now try to engage through a process of question and listen. Really listening before blurting out the next question is a constant challenge though :)

    #14 I'm not the only one who can speed up her chatter? ;-) I don't mind if a person talks a bit faster or a little more than I may. What I do mind is when someone dominates, talks about themselves as you noted about this man... talks non-stop as if they are the center of the universe LOL. I love a good back and forth with others! I love talking face to face- I find that tends to go better because people are using more of their senses. I have a good friend who LOVES to talk, she has me beat by far and if we chat on the phone there are times I put my phone down for a few seconds to catch my spinning head and when I pick it back up she's still talking. I once interrupted her (as in conversing) after listening for about 10 minutes and when I cut in to share my thoughts, she said, "Excuse me, I was talking!" I can laugh about it now but I was so pissed when she did that. I told her face to face how that made me feel and she said she was having a bad evening and felt bad as soon as we hung up. She apologized and it was sincere. She's a gabber but she's also a very giving, compassionate person. I'm glad I said something to her or I might have written her off. I'm glad I made you laugh. Chatters United!

    Great buzz. I realised that when people talk a lot spontaneously and freely, usually they are being impatient with the process of sharing.
    Arrongance is pretty evident and it doesnt need too much thinking to assess that, but yes sometimes i did feel that people approached to share it all and i closed the window. Few months later i realised, i wasnt really listening and by not doing that i actually did them harm .

    Point being that listening is truly important it allows the people to talk with freedom and not ponder on thw how and what to talk.

    But that is a personal experience.

    14/03/2017 #20 Brian McKenzie
    This changes when you hop languages. In English - I know people aren't listening. You can see it in their eyes - if it isn't already glued to their Smart Phone - doing the text monkey happy dance. Overseas - when speaking in Russian - there is not time to form your own answer while the other person is talking because 1 - word order in Russian means nothing, the subject and theme maybe way down stream from verbs and clauses 2) I am not fluent in Russian - so I have to concentrate and translate as they go 3) Screw eye contact - hold their hand while you talk - squeeze it when you need attention. ;)

    Thanks for sharing @Susan Rooks, it is hard listening to someone talk non-stop, but harder when we have opened ourselves on a personal level, like a date. Then the talking can feel like we are being ignored, and in your case degraded (one thing he focused on with me was my rotten marketing efforts for my own business). It hurts. Hopefully people like that are now far from your life.

    1. When you believe in something so deeply, and you build a network of people who believe in you, anything is possible.

    2. When you choose to help others, and you work with intention and your whole heart, no matter what happens, you can be satisfied with that effort.

    3. If you want to make an impact, and you want to find deep satisfaction in life, STAY CURIOUS.

They definitely contained messages which we would never get to hear from any HR expert. Her approach towards each and every person was different.

    #26 I never got into ham radio except to listen, but I was an avid SWL'er, DX'er, and I actually still have two tube boat anchor receivers from 40's/50's. (off topic, I know). PS. I got to hear the broadcasts from Czech. when the Soviets invaded.

    #24 Robert - Thank you. Yes, I know what you mean. But, people to people contact is important. And - more fun. Find something you enjoy doing, and share it with others - maybe my early interest in ham radio influenced this on me, it is traditional in ham radio for experienced "old timers" of any age - to help people. The fancy name for this is "mentoring."

    Another example of re-inventing the wheel, I guess....

    Enjoyed this, @Wayne Yoshida Networking is hard, especially when you want to devote your time to writing, or thinking about writing, or writing about writing. The thought of interacting with people plays last, but I know it's an important component of being seen and heard. Thanks for posting.

    #14 I have a friend who's in one of those government organizations. Every now and then, he calls me on the phone. I never call him. But every time he calls me, I get to hear about some interesting and dangerous mission he is on, and he's taking a break. Stuff not shown on the news (either fake or real).

    Another government guy I know I can call, and he answers the phone with a certain set of numbers. Interesting. And we have a "normal conversation" about various topics.

    Neither of them use social media at all . . . .

    at some point linkedin will be reduced to a sharepoint feature, and you will be all force to subscribe to microsoft 365 sharepoint evolution...How much do you want to bet ? Linkedin is a Recruiters website with options that come and goes. But it is effective since hiring managers will start witha linkedin screening (not all of them Google search rules ! @Anne Thornley-Brown

    Likwe the people you quoted, I've gone through all of the frustrations and ups and downs on LinkedIn. Worse because I have been so heavily involved in group management. At some point you have to recognize it is what it is. Nothing remains static. If a platform no longer meets some of your needs, you move on. LinkedIn is still good for finding contacts, staying in touch with existing clients and former colleagues, and for peer to peer discussions in the few groups where there is still engagement. Don't look to LinkedIn to get a lot of traction for your blog posts or leads for your business. It's definitely not worth posting on LinkedIn Publisher. Hardly anybody sees the posts. If you work at it, LinkedIn does generate some website traffic.Twitter sends some blgo traffic. Facebook is great for finding family and it has come in handy as genealogy is one of my hobbies. beBee definitely fills some of the gaps in these other platforms. As you stated, never put all eggs in one basket. Businesses need a suite of tools to meet their needs.

    @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee thank you for this buzz which I think reflects wisdom and commonsense. I've only just starting creating content, so I am keen to see my posts receive as much exposure as they can.. So far beBee eclipses LinkedIn as far as views, comments and shares go by a golden mile. The community here is welcoming, encouraging and helpful. However LinkedIn was where my networking journey online first blossomed. It is as you say, a "huge business directory". I also like your advice because it reflects the old adage: don't burn your bridges..

    I will keep Linkedin and enjoy and build my personal and professional Brand on beBee. beBee is my passion and LinkedIn has all my candidates who rely on me. I will stay there hoping the ship doesn't sink.

    Great read @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee, exactly the reason why I came over to beBee, (2 days ago), and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience so far. As has been mentioned on other comments I'm maintaining my profile on LinkedIn due to the years of investment into it but I think I'll be far more active here

    #27 It ain't just promotion, @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee. (Unlike many/most of the comments on this thread. But then - That's kinda the point, isn't it?)

    Both of those links are to material which is thoughtful, well-researched, and well-regarded (even on beBee, where they were published for many months before being migrated to my blog).

    They're about beBee. And furthermore ... they're actually 'relevant'. Try reading them.

    BTW: Is this a hint as to how the new 'editorial tools' will be used?

    I agree with this buzz 100%. LinkedIn still has it purpose, yet I loved it at the beginning for it's relationships. A number of months of ago, the entire Platform changed making the experience, how to use the site, or what I would call the "gameplay" terrible. Many of my associates are no longer with them, which is the reason I was with them in the first place. I can't even figure out how to send a recommendation to the site to make it back to the old way to bring back their users.
    While beBee is so User Friendly. I can also talk directly to the Bees in charge. I have conversations with @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee and get a response within 6 to 48 hours. This is a reason the Hive is growing so fast.

    I am a national / international business developer and CEO of a sustainable engineering and sports business company, and I can say that LinkedIn has already been a great network for generating good business, business partnerships, including sharing the latest news. Industries and sell products and services. However, the LinkedIn for a year has begun to collapse and to be profitable began to copy Facebook, which was desired at the business level.
    As soon as the beBee was released I created a profile, but also ended up migrating to other professional networks specific to my industry, which although smaller are great and much better than LinkedIn at the generation of business. However, since I have several profiles on several different networks around the world, I ended up losing my profile email and password, and I ended up creating another profile on beBee, sincerely not regretting anything, and I think I did a great job business. Currently, I continue to profile my company on LinkedIn because of the business contacts the company has as customers, business partners, suppliers and national and international employees. But, my personal profile I exclude from there.
    Here I am increasing my knowledge, sharing experiences and maturing my business, since here are the countries where I develop business, commercial partnerships and projects. Very good and I wish success for the whole team of beBee founders, that many more people can take advantage of this platform and so I develop business opportunities. Congratulations and success to all!

    Thank you for sharing @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee. The only reason I continue to utilize LinkedIn is because of the relationships I have established with my connections. They all love the big audience found on LinkedIn and as beBee continues to grow, more and more of these people will begin making their move towards beBee. Most people want and need engagement from the content they post and they need to know they can find it on beBee.
