    Great advice @Renée 🐝 Cormier, a lot can get lost or misinterpreted in an email (even tone). I have made it a habit not to respond to something that may be touchy via email anymore... actually quite some time ago because of the reasons stated above. "Don't speak in anger," and "Be open to resolution." So true, it makes life much easier when people can communicate without being on the defense.

    #2 Yes, I agree that face-to-face has its time and place (good rhyme, eh?). There has always been a bit of an art to managing those discussions. Our tech connected world may cause us to lose the skill. On the other hand, it may cause us to become a little more thick skinned. Maybe the day is coming when people won't be offended by negativity expressed through electronic communication.

    Great points here, Renee. Unfortunately, most young people today would rather use text than talk and communicate by Facebook over meeting face-to-face. While this might be helpful in some ways -- like communicating remotely -- it also has many negative side effects.
    For starters, it removes the human element of communications to a large extent. It dumbs down young people by ignoring people skills ("soft skills"). It's also easier to bully and harass someone online, rant and rave, or just have a stubbornly narrow-sighted view regarding public discourse. I think most folks should try to strike a reasonable balance between communicating online and off. This is not a so-called "zero sum game" and communicating online and off are not mutually exclusive.
    Thanks for more good blogging buzz!

    A BIG SPECIAL THANK YOU goes out to @Wayne Yoshida who pointed out that we were not supporting a bunch of people who prefer text-only email.

    Not only that, he also volunteered to be the test subject for us to fix that. I spent half the day spamming the heck out of him until, I think, we got it right.

    Thanks, again, Wayne

    Ahhh, Joycie, Joycie, Joycie. Let me assure you that there is no change needed on your part. I'll go over your questions in order.

    What goes out in these emails? - Whatever you bloody well like. In your case, the best use might be to just link your beBee Articles Feed to an email distribution list. That way, whenever you write a new post, myTweetPack will eventually find it, store a tweet of it, promote it on Twitter AND email a link to anyone who subscribes to your "beBee Articles by Joyce Bowen" list.

    Do we personally build those lists? - You can but it's better to let your readers build them for you. See lower down

    Resistance is futile? - Hey, it's myTweetPACK not myTweetBORG. You don't NEED to use any of the 83+ functions.

    Yes, I know all about you and change. So, here's what I did.

    I went ahead and created that "beBee Articles by Joyce Bowen" campaign. Anyone who clicks on this link https://www.myTweetPack.com/members/emailSubscribe.php?id=13 will join it. They can unjoin anytime.

    I'm even your first subscriber.

    Put that link in blog posts, on your email signature, in a text message, anywhere that can connect to the web. You can even use the link with some sort of graphic in Tweets. Heck, you can tattoo it on your heinie, but clicking it won't help.

    FYI: someone asked if several feeds can feed a single list. Yes and no. You can't do it, but I can do it for you on the back-end.

    @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, you will never cease to amaze me. I love the new look by the way. MyTweetPack has become easier to navigate too.

    I'm in my fantasy zone right now. If I were to market and thought of this 10 years ago, I would be taking photos of plating, new foods, wines/wineries and resort photos, then I would have an online publication that I could add the photos (showcase) and do a write up about the food/wines/resorts to help them market their products. So, there you go, you know my dream now. Why did I just share my dream? Because I would love to do testing for you based on a business I had but I don't so I have nothing to market except myself LOL.

    I think the opt in is a great idea. I've ran into many, many, many issues with opting out too, so I understand completely what you are saying!

    Anyone want to pay for my travel and cost of a hotel room in exchange for Photos and promotion of goods? ;-)

    #7 #9 Sure @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian - I can be a guinea pig. . . and you know me - I am a newbie to all this stuff, so I probably can show how a bunch of ways to get confused . . .

    "If you are having difficulty viewing this message, please click here to view it in a browser" - is quite common on messages I receive, so this could be a nice feature. PLUS, it may provide an easy/familiar way to share the item/post/buzz/share, by using the URL.

    26/10/2017 #9 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #4 Second reply: You gave me an idea, Wayne. That's what I like best about starting this myTweetPack thing for Lisa and Pam in the first place. Most of the ideas and functions came from user suggestions.

    What if we include a "If you are having difficulty viewing this message, please click here to view it in a browser" type of thing? That should be easy enough to do (we already have the HTML from the email). Triggering the open counter would be a piece of cake compared to "tricking" an email program into thinking a PHP counter script is an image.

    (Okay, so it isn't really "tricking" we DO return an image.)

    We would just need to add a few lines to make a Multi-Part Mime message which is a fancy-pants way of saying we send plain text and HTML simultaneously and let your email program choose which to display. EZ PZ. I wouldn't include a full text-only option because there would be no way to track opens.

    The other question would be how do we present it? I don't think a myTweetPack-branded view would be cool even though I wouldn't mind the exposure. Maybe a clean "letterhead" type of page?

    Thoughts?

    I'll look at that tomorrow. I have to get my pizzas ready... it's Margarita Squared tonight... that's Margarita pizzas with Margarita cocktails.

    #4 To be honest, I'm not sure, @Wayne Yoshida. Care to be a Guinea Pig? Join the Drip Campaign, it's the second link. The first email will go out almost immediately. Let me know and I'll check the back-end. Unscribe after if you want, but there are a lot of tips, tricks, and best practices in that campaign.

    I'll be writing a User Manual for the email system once the users tell me what confuses them. I tried to put a lot of explanation right on the pages.

    Thanks for the "open rates fallacy" @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian - what happens if the recipient (like me) sets e-mail preference for text-only and not HTML? Does it not count because of the non-delivered image?

    #1 Thanks, @Pamela 🐝 Williams! That means a lot since you were one of the people that got me to start on this path (along with @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher) .

    When you sign in with LinkedIn there is no access to your connections list. Signing in with Twitter, with us, is on a read-only basis and we don't bother loading anyone's follower or following list. (what would be the point?) Heck, we don't even store the access tokens Twitter sends us to read with.

    I haven't started looking at Facebook yet, but I doubt they allow will-nilly access to friends. That would be irresponsible.

    Using Twitter or LinkedIn (and, I assume Facebook) always brings you to a screen that describes what permission they want. EXAMPLE: the regular myTweetPack system Twitter authorization asks for read, write, and access direct messages permissions. It's right there on Twitter's authorization screen. The email list sign up only asks for read permissions and for access to your email.

    Either way there's a link to terms of use and privacy policy.

    If you see a sign-in with anything that wants write permissions, DON'T unless there's a logical reason for it! myTweetPack's regular authorization tweets for you, processes your follows/unfollows, updates LinkedIn, etc. IT NEEDS to be able to write to your account but has no access to your email. We used a different connection for joining email lists because we don't need to write for you there, but we do need your email.

    It sounds like you were added to an opt-out list. Yes, that can be annoying.
    Pamela 🐝 Williams
    25/10/2017 #1 Pamela 🐝 Williams
    OMG Paul the TweetPack has gone so far since I last checked in! Great work. Question: I always hesitate signing up with LI or Facebook because I fear them tapping into my contacts and bombarding them with the opt-out only email scenario and saying I invited them to join. I've gotten on some list like that but the supposed inviter said they never sent the invite. If this possible?

    The Creative Integrator
    explains, in this captivating video:

    It's all about IDENTITY.
    It's all about COMMUNICATION.

    At the core of every aspect of our personal and professional lives are issues of identity.

    Who am I?

    We spend our time and money on learning how to best communicate that identity.

    And it all comes down to who you are and how you communicate that identity to others.

    Sara discusses:
    Three branches of our being:

    1) We are SENSORY BEINGS

    2) We are CONSCIOUS BEINGS

    3) We are CREATIVE BEINGS.

    Our innate language with which we communicate who we are is the non-verbal and verbal language of metaphor.

    "METAPHOR our LANGUAGEΒ of CREATIVE THINKING." @Sara Jacobovici

    What an amazing video @Sara Jacobovici. Technically, and the message.

    I am new to this concept of attached meaning in communications. For about a year now i have been watching not only my actions but those of others and how certain words, context and behaviours solicit automated responses.

    I have known this for a while now, but really just saw it as a moment in time with each event. I am beginning to understand the process of our narrative and its impact on our daily lives. More importantly we don't realize the depth at which it controls our communications.

    Great message and concepts.

    @Sara Jacobovici you are so easy to listen to. You made a good point about how we use words and others may not interpret them as we do. This was very impressive and I love the idea that we engage through our senses. It's like when we were kids... maybe that's a good thing to remember, how we explained so much through our senses and many times enthusiasm. I love the background in your video too.

    #27 Great analysis, @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. Still, there is something more here than a personal brand. It can not be analyzed. People are not products. People are much deeper than stereotypes..
    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    06/09/2017 #27 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    @Sara Jacobovici you are executing your personal brand strategy very well, and that is coming from someone who is not fond of personal branding. I am not fond of it when it is done poorly, but if anyone wants to know how to engage personal branding with quality, simply needs to study your roll out this month of videos, website, logo, ebooks etc etc. It is clear that you have invested in this and it is not easy to bring so many elements together to create a cohesive personal brand. I will still rail against the idea that everyone can do it, because everyone cannot do it - because when they do it, it is done without imagination or without strategic nous.

    The one technical point about the video is that not all the examples you provided were metaphor, the simile (which can contain an "as" or "like") has its place, as does the metaphor - so it would be good to apply that difference.

    The good thing is that you are executing on a marketing strategy and only in the doing is there the opportunity to refine and get even better at communicating your message and brand. You are several notches ahead in your overall delivery and now serve as a good example of someone intelligently applying a personal brand. I still prefer to brand the business rather than the person, but when it is done this well, personal branding is a legitimate vehicle to build your marketing around.

    #6 Thank you very much for your kind reply Tausif. Indeed, as long as we give way and room for someone to pursuit 'success' the way they see fit, we also may enjoy to see . There are different universal principles working in every one and everything. Regretfully some find that they must contain or limit others while 'success' only can thrive and grow in a limit - free constitution and environment. Every person 'made 'IT'' , has don 'IT' according own stand, view and merit, that is the lesson for others to learn to understand that achieving 'Success', is an exclusive personal journey. :O)

    #5 Dear Promo, thank you for your kind words. It is great pleasure to read it adds value for you. Please, bare in mind that what ever you do with that universal principle, always do it your way since there is no 'one way...' :O) Until the next one :O)

    I agree with you on an aspect that one formula being tried by a person cannot make another successful. Their strengths differ; Their weaknesses differ. Even differs the way they function and spontaneously take charge of their duties on day to day basis. This buzz was an eye opener because it has something special to offer. Why can't we channelize our energy on things which helps us grow and gives great satisfaction. Let's hold a torch of optimism in the gloom of pessimism where one can find a successful path.

    Thanks for sharing this buzz with us, @Numo Quest

    This is great @Numo Quest, much less stress if we are focusing on our contributions in the here and now! I love this line: "It is choice to put energy and empathy into such matters where nothing will change, you only contribute." Such a great choice because when we put energy into others and feel empathy, we aren't focusing on 'self.'

    "More often than not, however, we are taught who to be, before we can articulate who we are." This is the quote that stands out for me in this post @Sara Jacobovici.

Thank you for a thought provoking post.

    That was epic dear Jim!

    Certain kinds of businesses / individuals do stand to gain a lot from the local/global reach SM provides but otherwise (mostly so) it indeed is so much of a time-energy-money sucking vortex!

    But yes, this is one place where I would want all the 'grown-ups' I admire and have befriended over the years, to be.

    beBee is so much more about meaningful interactions that pave the way to better professional and personal relationships! It is the most delightful two-way street on the infobahn ;)

    @Jim Murray, With all due respect, I agree with you only partially. I find that the only way to find a balance is to achieve first "balance" between results in the real life (business and our profession) and business - professional - engagement results in social media and networks that are the combined result of two input variables: a) time spent and activities in social networks (multiple social media profiles) with the target entities and b) activities and results in the real life. Social media is not a source of profit they are only supplements for the hack of our growth that is initiated outside of social media, i.e. in the real life. This does not apply to professions which are directly related to social media.

    Jim, the things you wrote about in your little essay, I've told myself many times. Although being an introvert, I've never purchased anything online, and always prefer real life over virtual. Perhaps I'm just the exception that proves the rule.
    I agree with almost everything you said.
    Yes, it seems that we are giving more than we are getting out of Internet. I would say that four years of social networking gave me a lot of good things, partly justifying the time spent on social media.
    Yes, it seems that a lot of people try to become writers. I've also tried, but lately my muse has taken a long vacation. :-)
    Yes, there are many not so good contents, but it doesn't frustrate me because there are many contents of high quality, as well.
    In the end, we are both still here, in the virtual world. This proves that there's still something good about using social media (or we may already have become addicts). :-)

    Kudos Jim, on another brilliant buzz. You make many excellent points with which I agree. The Internet in general, and social media in particular, is a double edged sword. I think more young people born into the Digital Age need to be educated about the downsides of failing to strike a mentally and physically health balance between being online and off. These new generations need to be reminded that, yes by golly, there was life before the Internet and social media. In fact, more young people back then spent more time outdoors enjoying the wonders of nature and getting more physical activity.
    On the flipside, today we live in a zombie-like society where people of all ages are addicted to too much screen time. This online obsession has resulted in many troubling truths, from the rise of childhood obesity to real time murder and abuse of innocent people via social media live streaming video (like Facebook Live).
    Of course, there are also many upsides to having a wealth of information, knowledge and online commerce at our fingertips. But sleeping with smartphones, for instance, is taking it one step too far IMHO. Thanks again for sharing your important insights on this timely and troubling topic.

    Jim, you are absolutely right, the internet is a gimmick to get people to join the lemming line. I post every day, because it is a challenge I presented to myself. Over the last two years, I've been lazy about writing in general. I'm almost done with the challenge. Also, since I stopped being a dick in the real world, I don't have a lot of friends left. Perhaps your epiphany has stated that I need to find new friends, but I don't care for dicks, and finding people who aren't dicks in the real world is getting harder and harder to do. I think it's an extension of the internet. I prefer to read dragon fire breath most days than not. I like truth. Have a great day!

    Jim, perhaps the most troubling aspect is the use of Gamification techniques which award tokens of no intrinsic value as rewards for constantly posting not only articles, but comments, shares, and likes. Like the new "Queen Bee" label on beBee that will be awarded for "... beeing an extra busy buzzing bee" the idea behind Gamification is to produce a Dpamine dependence that drives a user to obsessive activity. What is even more chilling is that the technique is spoken of in social media management circles with unremorseful glee as a growth hack. Cheers!

    "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them." ~ Mark Twain. In the dark ages, peasants were not allowed the privilege of learning to read. In early America, it was a crime to teach a slave to read, and a crime for a slave to have the ability to read. In religious history, the followers were made dependent on the priests, pharisees and sadducees to know what the scrolls said, because they could not read. Ignorance has historically been the 'go-to' method of controlling the masses. Today we are graduating the functionally illiterate from high school. Cursive writing is on its way out of elementary education. Videos are taking the place of books. It is a dangerous thing to be unable to read. Reading is the foundation of critical thinking. If you cannot read, you cannot solve the story problem or equation in mathematics, you don't understand the fundamentals of science. You only know the handle of a broom or shovel.

Some years ago, a very experienced fiberglass production guy dubbed himself "The Fiberglass Guru" and launched a website on which he not only promoted himself and the industrial services he provided, but also -- and this is most important -- answered all manner of questions from readers concerning reinforced plastic laminates. The self-ascribed title was not as presumptuous as such often are because he stood ready to offer a pile of free advice and to back his opinions up with detailed explanations and instructions, also for free. It was also at a time when the use of the title could be seen as a tongue-in-cheek marketing affectation. Cheers!

    #31 I agree Phil. There's a world of difference when the words 'self-proclaimed' is put in front of 'expert' or 'guru'.

    I'm more than a little suspect when someone claims to be an expert in anything. Those who have achieved mastery of a skill, or knowledge don't need to brag... it is evident just by watching their actions, or listening to them speak.

    #31 Yes. That is just one more reason why knowledge is power. It really does make me sad to see people put so much faith in the expertise of others. Even well educated and knowledgeable people with good intentions are fallible. It is up to us to not be sheep and figure out the difference between the wolves and the dogs.

    @Renée 🐝 Cormier, this is a great piece, chock full of street smarts. I'd like to add one example to your list of tools for communications manipulators: self-ascribed "expert" or "guru" status. In the hands of such manipulators, these labels are intended to signal to the intellectually lazy that the manipulator's message should be accepted at face value, without question because the expert or guru knows so much more than the reader. The most common warning flag is that, when you question one of these people, the response is never a reasoned or detailed explanation, but always an admonishment simply to trust him or her, for he or she knows the truth. Cheers!

If you would like to budget 150$ CAD/Mo i can arrange a 12 months subscription with my company and show you how to perform and use it. It is way beyond powerful as any software handleing 60 000 users interactions per second, after that capacity you will need a 9 000 $ swictch called Load balencer..but if you need that LOl you just became a Google's competitor.

    #108 Neil, thanks for reading and commenting. You say that well-meaning people can, "somehow end up supporting people who want to publish the plans for a bomb or the recipe for nerve gas on Facebook." No, they can't if they have any brains. Speech which ends in or encourages actions that harm others is not protected under the concept of free expression. Not to my mind, nor to that of any thinking person. Just a racial, ethnic, and religious based hate is not. The line is hard to draw, I admit. But the extreme cases are easy enough to spot. Cheers!

    #111 @Donna-Luisa Eversley, I never use the term "Dear" in addressing people on social media, for I have always felt it to be somewhat affected. But I am moved here to say, "Dearest D-L" for your comments here are of such value and exhibit such a degree of insight. Summed up by, "I also can appreciate more the people I thought were very negative and unkind in a different light, as the glare from the positive rays can mask reality. We must seek to live in truth."

    I believe that we've grown together over the past year on beBee. Me toward more tolerance of those who don't understand me or my writing, and you toward more understanding of those who do. And I am touched by your loyalty and courage in speaking your mind these days. Your thoughts are both welcome and intellectually gratifying. Cheers!

    Thanks for the interesting and topical chat guys. It is certainly a hard balancing act for a lot of people. These days there seem to be a lot of calls for things and people to be banned by those who believe that their own desire not to be personally offended trumps the right to free expression. This is hard to agree with but the problem is that someone can start out in favour of non-censorship and the right to espouse unpopular views and somehow end up supporting people who want to publish the plans for a bomb or the recipe for nerve gas on Facebook. When there is a conversation going on this can be resolved in a messily human way by consensus and compromise. In the current climate however lots of factions are setting out intractable positions from the get go and refusing to budge an inch. So does the decision go to whoever shouts the loudest?

    #105 Good to hear from you, Larry. You ask, I think, a couple of excellent questions. So let me answer: 1) Where the explicit mission of a social network is to create a "community" of users, I'd agree that, within the boundaries of the community standards for acceptable forms of expression, every community member's comments should be protected against removal. 2) Censorship is, in the strict sense of the word, prior restraint, either by active prohibition or by threat of sanction in the event of publication. Under which strict definition, removal or comments or posts by community officials would not, I think, be censorship, but as you say enforcement of community rules. Which is why I've repeated referred to an explicit statement of guidelines for removal or deletion. (The guidelines should be for the sanction because it is easier to define what is not acceptable than what is.)

    Notwithstanding that, however, I think we have to admit that the stated missions of most social media are not to create a "community", but something else, often a "platform" for self-publishing, personal-brand building, business and professional networking, job hunting, recruiting, and so on. So any inferences about what should be, cannot be drawn from accepted premises about a social community. IMO. Thank you for reading and joining the conversation.
    Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador
    20/02/2017 #105 Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador
    Excellent point @Phil Friedman and @Jim Murray and I agree on the points of censorship. However let me throw out another view where a social network is about creating a community of users. From a perspective of a community, as opposed to publishing platform, does user behavior and the removal of a user or their comment take different perspective? Could a user have every right to make a statement welcome in the community? If you have a state community value of respect and a user is not respectful are you censoring or simply creating a community where respect is valued by all and if not they are simply not part of the community? The results may be similar but the reason is different.

    #97 At least you admit we have a border.

    I compare our laws with other countries and we are EXTREMELY flexible. So flexible everyone seems to pick and choose which ones to follow.

    I am not one that picks on people whose legal status fluctuates because I know the complexities of immigration. The wall wont stop people coming here either or those that get paid to bring them. People whose status is in question are exploited and targeted for crime by their own people. They often cannot get home because they don't have a home or their home is over seas, not across a border... etc...

    #95 Yes, David, that is right β€” as far as it goes. The problem is with deciding what crosses the line to become, in your words, "... online bullying, harassment, needless name calling, personal attacks or demonization of one's character..." The hard part is setting the standards. For example, I personally find a lot of the self-ascriptive BS that some people post about how they are pretty much the second coming of God really offensive. But in saying so, I am not in any way advocating censorship of such material. I am just exercising my right to recommend that my fellow bees ignore that material and not promote it without first reading and pondering what it means to the rest of us who are concerned with the reputation of the platform.

    For me, freedom of expression is a fundamental right for all, including those with whom I disagree and who spout malevolent bilge. However, guaranteeing freedom of expression does not obligate anyone to listen or otherwise pay attention. Thanks for joining the conversation. And cheers!

    Thanks for another exemplary exchange as usual, Phil and Jim. I agree with Phil that there is nothing wrong with constructive criticism expressed in a cordial/polite manner on social media. There should not be unwarranted restrictions against an open online dialogue even on contentious and controversial all issues. Everyone has the right to express their own opinion and disagree with the majority. But once language changes from constructive to destructive then problems arise. There's never a justification for online bullying, harassment, needless name calling, personal attacks or demonization of one's character, etc.
    Just keep online speech polite and cordial even if you disagree, and there shouldn't be any problems. this is not rocket science but basic common courtesy, respect and good manners. Is that about right, Phil and Jim?

    Scott,
    My clients echo your comments regularly. It all comes down to how people think about networking. Those that approach it from a relational perspective react with horror at the spamming that goes on, which (in my opinion) comes from people that think networking is transactional and can't understand why you object to their approach. Those who really want to connect pay it forward with no expectations of tit for tat rewards.

    The trolls and abusers have been asking for censorship for years now. While I support extremely unpopular views (mine or others'), I don't support out-and-out abuse like what we've seen on Twitter (I haven't seen it on beBee so far but I don't monitor all ten million+ users). Many mass media comment sections have been eliminated just because it's impossible to keep up with all the abusive and violation of the rules posts.

    The ones screaming about it the most are the ones generally most in violation of the rules.

    I for one am not losing sleep over Milos Y's lifelong ban from Twitter. He wasn't a thoughtful commentator, he is a bile-filled ragebaby whose only purpose is to make other peoples' lives miserable for no good reason. Fortunately, he seems to have jumped the shark this week with his comments appearing to support pedo- and paraphilia. Lost his book deal and several engagements and the good news for him is that he has something new to tantrum about.

    In this day of fake news and idiots easily led by ridiculous stories about Hillary Clinton promoting pedophile pizza rings, it's time to have a new debate on censorship. When some moron walks into a pizza shop with a gun looking for perverts, it's time for censorship.

    @ Aleta Curry - no, perhaps not more generous. 'Out' means out of the platform and barred permanently - brooking no argument. I perhaps would put one error down to linguistic differences and colloquialisms (yes, I have been caught that way myself) especially between English speakers as a native language and those who have English as a second language. (So through the use of a common and harmless local colloquialism I lost a very good contact/colleague). After the first well ....

    #12 and the cowardly passive aggressive #%*& with their finger on the REPORT button that finds my decorating offensive in my rented unit that I created? I like loud oranges, brash patterns, and will often park the motorcycle in front of the couch

    #7 You're more generous than I am in this regard, @Rob McNaughton!

    #6 That, and whether or not you want the project to succeed, @Dean Owen. I've seen two great projects ruined by bad moderation. All that effort gone to waste!

    #7 Not from me. I don't even allow it on my social media threads. You abuse or swear at people, the post is removed. A couple of times I've been accused of simply not liking what the person had to say, but I trust that anyone who knows me knows that that's nonsense.

    I'm not even averse to the milder swear words. You write 'life's a bitch', I don't care. You write 'you're a bitch', post is summarily deleted.

    If people use really bad words (but not directly at any of the other kidlets) I'll privately ask them to rephrase.

    "It is NOT an issue of free speech or constitutional protection." - I agree. It is about good manners.

    Robert, very good advice! A great reminder too that free speech doesn't necessarily mean abusive speech or name calling.
See all
