Comments20/01/2017 #6 Dean OwenI understand the use of relevants as a tool for encouragement, and this is especially important in a relatively new social network like beBee, but hopefully at some stage in the near future, the motivation to hit the relevant button will be increasingly based on merit. We'll have stickers soon, and I am looking forward to seeing how that will change the dynamic.20/01/2017 #5 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI have a confession to make, @Gert Scholtz. I don't relevant by default. I prefer to type out my relevants in long form. And then I feel like I may give the buzz a second chance at some new eyes if I relevant when I go back to thank someone for responding to my comment.
Just my own little methodology twist, that might appeal to someone else, as doing the actions separately, hours apart, is likely to bring the buzz on top for a new group of bees.19/01/2017 #2 David B. GrinbergBrilliant buzz, Gert. One thing I know for sure: your writing is always relevant to me! And I likewise appreciate your "dopamine-stings" of relevance on my posts, as you deem appropriate. Ditto that for all bees who have interacted with my blogging. Many thanks to all of you. Keep buzzing and being relevant...

Comments16/01/2017 #37 Paul BurgePerfectly articulated buzz about what beBee's ethos is @Juan Imaz! How we view ourselves and how others view us is the personal branding space which we occupy and the unique space that will continue to fill to help everyone build and develop their own personal brands...Success beckons!!14/01/2017 #28 Mohammed SultanIt's a great idea to use beBee as a positioning platform for job seekers and for the employers who are seeking a synergy with employees passion and core interests.This idea can encourage everyone to stick around the idea of branding themselves.Branding doesn't mean presenting your core skills or core interests but instead positioning the output of both and sticking it in the hiring manager's mind.Unlike presenting your past ,positioning means telling your story from the employers point of view .Here, I understand that HR are going to treat employees as brands and therefore will be headed by Chief Employee Experience Officers! That's a great concept with good payoffs on both sides.Thank you @Juan Imaz.14/01/2017 #26 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI held my stomach when I first saw Brand You 20 years ago but I can certainly live with it today. There is room in the 21st Century for 20th Century marketing because people readily identify with it and it is a perpetuation of a belief system which one can argue voraciously for. I am a heretic when it comes to personal branding but I am also a student of what brings us to embrace image and where we can find safe harbour and refuge from a society that is very image bound and where identification is important.
Tom Peters - Brand You 
The Church of Personal Branding has grown substantially in the last 20 years so as a positioning device it works and will continue to work over the next few years. I recognize the rise of branded properties and acknowledge the 'great brands" and also superstars who deploy branding strategies to manage their public image, but Brand You is "personal brand" for the masses.
I neither wish to view myself as product, nor do I see value in my subscription to what can amount to a personal idolatry, At the individual level "brand you" can turn into a virulent form of group-think because it is an idea virus, and in that form it is well worth studying as a social and group phenomenon.
At a personal level personal brand has never been a personal requirement but it is worth playing with because social ideas are playthings that are seeds for personal innovation. Personal brand is required as a form of control since we are still evolving as a human society, and as long as we remain living in a broadcast culture - this evolution will be the slow path towards renaissance.13/01/2017 #20 AnonymousKudos @Juan Imaz. It's ME who aspires to become WE, effortlessly and seamlessly. In doing so, ME remains authentic and effortlessly united with WE. It is a social transformation that will change the reality and lives of all of us for the better. This is the process, but not like Kafka's process. What is important is the time. This is more like the creation of a new value by WE and not just a personal brand by itself. Future leadership is about social complexity with a growing trend of social encounters and exchanges. You are the one and we'll be back.

Comments07/01/2017 #44 Lyon BraveIt's more accessible than other social media types. Facebook is only good for your friends. Twitter you can add everyone, but there is no connection even with all the tweeting. Instagram is causal and great for images, but not friends. I feel like at bebee, you can really make pen-pals and new friends, without coming off as a troll. I don't know why, but being a bee makes you more likable than a random on facebook.07/01/2017 #40 🐝 Fatima Williams#24 Contd
Every time you comment You share information that we would have otherwise not known. Like who knew there was a ""The Daughters of the American Revolution" in Washington DC. You talk about masculinity in its politics there. Imagine other parts of the world.
Women are still being trampled in some places I know. I was disheartened to read political views on the recent Mass Molestation of women on New year's eve in Bangalore , when everyone all over the world were welcoming the New year.
I wish that Women are looked up for more than just the feminine part that exists in them. I wish the world had more people like yourself. I wish 2017 brings more grace & humanness to the people & leaders of the world.07/01/2017 #39 🐝 Fatima Williams#24 CityVP 🐝 Manjit If life and time gives me an opportunity I'd wish to be neighbours or family with you ( Your daughter ).If being connected virtually can impact the people around you so much I can only imagine knowing and talking to you face to face.

Comments05/01/2017 #4 Aleta Curry#1 #2 Thanks, @David B. Grinberg I think the answer is ignorance (in the sense of simply not knowing, not in an insulting sense) and in this light, @Javier 🐝 beBee's answer makes a great deal of sense.
I'm happily surprised to hear that I am in the majority for once (60%; desktop users). I run a business from a home office in the country, which has many advantages, but is technologically limited. Further, I find that older users really need to be informed and guided about any kind of computer technology, and techies and nerds just assume that everyone knows, despite the fact that surveys consistently show a skewed demographic (overwhelming majority young white men; what about the rest of us?)
beBee is an inclusive platform, and that will give it an edge in the future.05/01/2017 #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 🐝🐝✌️️🇺🇸

Comments31/12/2016 #2 CityVP 🐝 ManjitHaving an emergent big picture vision is my backdrop to living one day at a time, which is more than just writing a page of life, for it is in the writing that we find ourselves - for all the truth that emerges from us our found in our own paragraphs - and then it is a case of the capacity of our own wisdom to recognize all that truth within us that is weighed down by the myths we entertain and the self-limiting beliefs that serve us to either avoid that truth, or the cowardice thta stops us from being that truth - not the truth of value judgement, but the truth of our being that is greater than any words can express - to live that which is great within us or at least know we touched it before we depart in this temporal journey and organic contract that is life.

Era de mi hermana, la mediana, que en FP se lo harían leer y lo tenía por ahí. Yo lo agarré y me puse con él. Que pena que no conserve aquel original, me haría ilusión.
Y gracias por seguir a @David López , mi hijo, le hace mucha ilusión tener seguidores (como es lógico) y en breve publicará otra nueva receta. Saludos, Felices Fiestas y buena entrada de Año.25/12/2016 #63 Fran BrizzolisNo creerias que te. Ibas a librar de la entrevista de la crack @Mamen 🐝 Delgado eh @José Ramón 🐝 López? Bienvenido al club amigo.... Eres un super crack y todos lo sabemos.... Feliz Navidad para todos y muy especialmente a los no la tengan para que encuentren las fuerzas necedarias para seguir....25/12/2016 #62 José Ramón 🐝 López#59 Gracias @Ruth Tarragó Guañabens por tus palabras de aprecio. Sí, somos casi vecinos, compartiendo el Llobregat, jejeje. En mi opinión esta es una profesión no solo de presente si no también de futuro, por lo que adelante, bienvenida. Y aquí hay sitio para muchos, muchos, que en Barcelona y alrededores hay muchas empresas esperándonos.
@David López está en fase de aprendizaje total y de pruebas. Le gusta la cocina pero es muy joven y habrá que observar y ver hasta que punto le gusta como para dedicarse a ello en serio. Si es así le apoyaremos para que estudie en una buena escuela de cocina. Y como bien dices... que no me pase na!, jajaja.

¡Felices Fiestas!25/12/2016 #56 CityVP 🐝 ManjitOne more thing before all the hugs are complete Mamen [ @Mamen 🐝 Delgado ], I have on this Christmas Eve, with the last hour closing in on Christmas Day - posted a buzz in my Paradox Wisdom hive https://www.bebee.com/producer/@cityvp/death-needs-time-life-needs-flow - and now I can think of Christmassy things - because there was still this within. For sure one day the tangible is good, but the intangible is goodwill - and for sure this is a time of peace and goodwill - I raise a metaphorical glass to new beginnings - "a toast to new beginnings".24/12/2016 #55 Mamen 🐝 Delgado#54 Hahaha, considering my admiration about the Mayan civilization, my beginning is the 25th of July. And even so, every day is a New Beginning... 😉
You are awesome @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, and I would love the visible become the tangible one day to give you a huge and real hug.
Wish you the best!!! 🎄💝24/12/2016 #54 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#53 Dear @Mamen 🐝 Delgado do you know the problem with Christmas is? People think of it as an end of a year and a time to chill and find one's energy so in 2017 you do the whole energy consuming existence all over again :-)
Christmas is meant to represent the birth of Jesus Christ - which is a beginning. In pagan terms it is the celebration of the Winter Solstice which again eludes to something being born, not something at the end of something
The Spiritual Meaning of Winter Solstice
This means Mamen, that IMHO we the regular denizens of beBee, like the rest of society, celebrate Christmas totally ass-backwards :-) The visibility we have in this moment is totally in our own capacity to unwrap the gifts we normally don't see.
Yes beBee has "visibilidad" but it also has "Haciendo visible lo invisible" where it is bee's like you and I that make that happen through the powers of our imagination. So it is your interview with @José Ramón 🐝 López makes the invisible visible, just as the other Jose does a.k.a. @José Brito e Silva does with his illustrations - so before I say Happy Christmas to you Mamen, I must acknowledge all of this first.
Happy Christmas Dearest Mamen :-)24/12/2016 #52 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#48 & #45 I must tell you that I have a new motto I carry forward after reading this interview :
"Death takes time, Life takes flow"
I am also amused by finding out that La Jordana - a Mexican newspaper paper picked up the flap about Pérez-Reverte over a plagiarism claim by unknown and still unknown childrens book writer Verónica Murguía, not only is his response interesting [IN SPANISH] http://www.jornada.unam.mx/ultimas/2015/03/18/201cirresponsabilidad-temeraria201d-acusarme-de-plagio-perez-reverte-6503.html but it also absolutely amusing - especially the snippet translation [IN ENGLISH] from "Dogs and Sons of Bitches" https://literaryrambles.wordpress.com/2015/02/27/snippet-arturo-perez-reverte-on-dogs-and-sons-of-b/
That is why I now say "Death takes time, life takes flow" - we either take the time to invest ourselves in dead things or we engage our life flow where and wherever life takes us. For sure it has me here right here right now and so thanks to @Mamen 🐝 Delgado for bringing this flow here on beBee It is through a great interviewer who focuses on those whose in lives are in flow from those whose life is merely stuck in time. The imprisoned mind translates into English thoughts by political/academic English people.

Comments17/12/2016 #46 Vivian ChapmanBusiness and work, are about people, after all.
I know of two examples relevant to the discussion:
I saw a job advertisement in a local paper for a Secretary/PA to the CEO of a large construction firm. It gave a list of the skills required, but ended saying "An interest in art would help"
Another example is when the building contractor I was working for hired an Estimator. He went through a lengthy process of interviews and references etc, and was finally taken on. Soon after, he had a conversation with the CEO, and they discovered a mutual passion for cricket. (The CEO had owned a cricket club at one time) The CEO exclaimed "Why didn't you tell me about your love of cricket during your interviews? We could have dispensed with all that!"21/10/2016 #43 Wayne Yoshida@Javier 🐝 beBee - YES! I went to an American Marketing Association (AMA) meeting last night. As I explained beBee to several people, I kept repeating the similar message -- everyone is much more than a "Job Title" -- we all have our personal passions, and so why not connect using this very human trait?20/10/2016 #37 Don 🐝 KerrIt continually comes back to the notion of work/life integration where we acknowledge that an individual is NOT just what he or she does to earn a living.

Let's give credit where credit is due.Now that Microsoft has closed on its deal with LinkedIn, there are articles surfacing about the future of this network. There are also many users who are frustrated with it. Ever since I learned about BeBee and joined it, I see that many people are...
Comments18/12/2016 #16 Jim MurrayNice Piece, @Mike Rana. I believe that the traditional rules of engagement no longer exist and so I post everything everywhere. You are right about beBee being relatively new compared to LinkedIn. But being able to direct your posts to LinkedIn from beBee is a huge plus, because for "everyday people" distribution from LinkedIn's publisher is a bad joke. Being able to direct your posts into special interest affinity based hives on BeBee is also a huge plus, as is being able to link to more other sites. For bloggers, it's a numbers game, and since coming to beBee 7 months ago my numbers and engagement on beBee dwarf the numbers I am allowed to achieve on LinkedIn. If it wasn't so easy to re-post there I probably wouldn't do it at all. I agree that LI is a powerful networking tool, but there is a lot of resentment that you will run into if you are too aggressive and that can hurt your brand and your reputation. But anyone who does not have beBee in their mix is missing out on a good opportunity to get well established in a new environment.18/12/2016 #15 Paul Walters@Mike Rana Great points. As a user of Li I simply plodded along until I fell instantly in love with Bebee . Its the connectivity on this site that I think is wonderful . Having said that I haven't given up on Li and slink back there a few times a week....bit slutty of me I know but then again.......17/12/2016 #13 Mike RanaHonestly, aside of commentary left on the article's thread, I have no way to knowing who is reading I publish.
The major takeaway for me for LI is that if you are considered an industry expert or established in your field, perhaps published in multiple places, you have a better chance of being recognized. While it might seem defeatist, I want to reach that goal of recognition on LI.#1117/12/2016 #12 Aleta CurryI still use LinkedIn in, of course I do. Horses for courses, as my husband says. But I'm more optimistic about the long term future of beBee, and, to tell the truth, I like to know that people are reading what I write.
For what I do, I think that beBee will eventually become *the* go-to social platform in my marketing plan, which is why I'm getting so involved while the platform is still small enough for me to be heard.17/12/2016 #7 Zacharias Voulgaris 🐝Even though LI is great for exhibiting your professional persona, I never got a job from it. Also the job search feature is rudimentary, unless you invest in the professional packages. It seems that it's run its course. Now it's time to move on to newer and better places...17/12/2016 #4 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI have no problem with LinkedIn - and the more this comparison between beBee and LinkedIn is made, it actually takes away from beBee has its own identity, meaning and way. Just because Britain used Australia as a penal colony does not define the character and history of Australia, unless one focuses on the penal colony alone rather than on the indigenous people of Australia and the multiplicity of the cultures that have emerged in that country ever since, then all we get is a distorted picture.
In marketing terms drawing a distinction between LinkedIn and beBee is simply a brand awareness exercise to let people know that there is an alternative, but beBee is distinct from LinkedIn. It is like saying that LinkedIn vs Facebook is thing that most people care about - no - only a handful of people disaffected by Facebook care about that, the vast majority ask a basic question
"What does this do for me?"
By a person's actions, the answer is in that question. I am not one of the disaffected and there were also 10 million bee's before I arrived and hopefully there will be a billion bee's after my time is done on this Earth of ours. So I am totally in favour of giving credit where credit is due and at the same time, because I firmly believe that one needs to know one's own strengths and work with those, rather than hope for crumbs that fall off from the masters table. Comparison shopping only works if the mass feel that too and not just an elite or any disgruntled minority. For me beBee has it's own unique character and I celebrate that.
- Producer28/04/2016User Engagement & Satisfaction: beBee Beats LinkedIn in LandslideIn case you haven't noticed, beBee is buzzing.As many beBee users already know, the startup affinity social network beats LinkedIn in a landslide regarding user engagement and satisfaction. These are two critically important social media metrics....
Comments09/01/2017 #81 Harvey Lloyd#74 I sense the stand off between the two great generations, one that was and one that is becoming, is a challenge for boomers to share what their wisdom so that we don't repeat mistakes. Curbing our communications so that they might listen or better understand (don't change the message itself.)is a worthy goal.09/01/2017 #80 David B. Grinberg#77 ...and @Javier 🐝 beBee, YOU are the most impressive and admirable social media CEO. Why? Because unlike FB's Mark Zuckerberg or LI's Jeff Weiner -- for starters -- YOU make it a priority to personally and directly engage users on this promising platform and respond to any user concerns with expedience and professionalism.
To others I would ask: when was the last time you received any direct interaction, feedback or engagement from any other social media CEO?
Never...that's what I thought.
It's no wonder Javier was recently selected as a regular contributor to Richard Branson's Virgin.com blog. Lastly, for any detractors, this is not only sincere flattery but absolute reality. No other social media CEO comes close to Javier, who is far and away the most engaging online -- period!
Facts are facts.09/01/2017 #79 Wayne Yoshida#74 Thanks for pointing the activity in those Hives, @David B. Grinberg - no matter how you slice it, Students and College are prime target markets for everyone -- and the students and colleges will benefit from any platform that enables them to demonstrate their "personal brand."08/01/2017 #77 Javier 🐝 beBeebeBee is the most complete platform to build your entire personal brand, engaging professionals through common interests - can be professional, can be personal. BE PROFESSIONAL, BE PERSONAL, BE SUCCESFUL !
The platform encourages users to display their personal brand in addition to their professional profile.08/01/2017 #75 Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand AmbassadorLots of good posts here, thx David for creating a lot of buzz here. Like Javier has note: beBee is disrupting professional social networking by establishing connections through passions and common interests that create more professional engagement and deeper and more successful business relationships. Its important to note that beBee and LI are different , and I tell people to start using both for different purposes. LI is strictly professional and BB is a network affinity based. Many bee's I have been able to sign up are told not to mention my name, mention Javier & Juan, I love the application here at beBee & the interaction from the Co_Founders & all participants. Here to help folks, call me on 1-404-750-3200 or see me on www.savannahsupplychain.com. BEST Regards, continued success for all here from Bill Stankiewicz, Savannah, Georgia
cc: @Javier 🐝 beBee @John White, MBA @Teresa Gezze08/01/2017 #74 David B. Grinberg#70 thank you @Harvey Lloyd for your excellent comments, which make perfect sense. Generation Z and their millennial predecessors are the largest population demographic and represent a new generation of leadership.
In this regard, I would note the hives "College" and "Students" have a combined membership of about 100,000 and growing. There is an awesome infographic about the reasons why BB is an appealing platform for millennials. I also recently did a Twitter "Moments" about this. Naysayers certainly have the right and respect of bees top off for their opinions, but that doesn't mean they are right.Thanks again Harvey for your potent points and keep buzzing in 2017 🐝🐝✌️️🇺🇸 cc: @Javier 🐝 beBee @John White, MBA @Teresa Gezze07/01/2017 #73 John Vaughan#72 Would love to respond, @Harvey Lloyd, but don't get your "I noticed your data set on the repost..." paragraph
Distrust is often (but not always) an underlying motivator for skepticism. A refusal to accept a common-ground of observable facts because "I have an opinion and I'm entitled to it" is pretty much the exact opposite of 'integrity'.07/01/2017 #72 Harvey Lloyd#71 The embracing integrity part is the part that scares me. Anytime change is upon us, when it is needed, someone or entity becomes the arbiter of that change. I know that i dont want the arbiters to be our collective political geniuses. They started this mess and lost control of it.
Yep i hate to generalize but market analysis is starting to come in on our younger kin. They dont like the comparative destructive commercials or marketing. They dont like contrast as a motivator, they want to see idealic assumptions about a brand.
I noticed your data set on the repost. I'm showing my poor understanding of social medias prowess now. It would be interesting to see if you used a comparative picture or title vs a idealic picture and title within the repost if the demographic of readers would change. Or an experiment testing the idea of the comparative vs the ideals of the brand.
That stuff fascinates me. How can a picture/turn of phrase mean so much. Maybe i am a little cynical. Just a little.07/01/2017 #71 John Vaughan#70 @Harvey Lloyd's generalizations about the Millenial preference for 'perceived affinity over observable fact' are probably valid. And not very pretty.
Still, I believe that the faceBook-ization of discourse into self-serving 'echo chambers' and breathless 'fake news' is now being reconsidered. The historian in me senses a sea change in our collective skepticism.
Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part, but I hope that the socialNets are now ready to embrace a little integrity ... beyond the cheer-leading.07/01/2017 #70 Harvey Lloyd@David B. Grinberg although data is sometimes important i also believe that BeBee is much larger than data sets. I believe the differences to the individual reader/poster is what should be highlighted. Our generation used data and technical matrices to evaluate things and didn't attach emotion to the matrix.
Our younger generation doesn't really care for our generations methods of displaying comparative data. They prefer to hear why they should chose BeBee and make it relevant to them.
My personal non supported opinion is that BeBees success will lie with these younger generations. I know in my business this was a hard lesson to learn. In start up many boomers held the positions of authority, life was good. After 15 years though many GenX have taken over these slots and am starting to see some the Y show up.
I sense your desire is in the right place but would suggest that all the ambassadors and folks who wish to promote Beebe in America should consider ten years from now and the generations that will be available to the platform.07/01/2017 #69 John Vaughan#66 Claire, with all due respect to the folks who are doing the "view"-counting at both beBee and at LinkedIn, please consider: 'BeBee vs. LinkedIn : By the Numbers" https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/bebee-vs-linkedin-by-the-numbers View more#66 Claire, with all due respect to the folks who are doing the "view"-counting at both beBee and at LinkedIn, please consider: 'BeBee vs. LinkedIn : By the Numbers" https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/bebee-vs-linkedin-by-the-numbers
The short Analysis: Sure, there are Big Shallow Numbers ... but also "sort of, but not really"
... with some Content:: "theMirror" https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/the-mirror-december-2016
... and Perspective: Measured caveats are offered by a couple of writers here regarding the deceptively shallow simplicity of 'beBee VERSUS LinkedIn' @Phil Friedman and @Wayne Yoshida are always worth listening to. Apples & oranges...
... of course, there's also the Environment itself. An overwhelming percentage of the comments in this thread (https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/the-magic-marker-exercise) come from beBee Promotionalists (https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/priming-the-pump)

For example I posted an article yesterday and so far I have over 600 views on beBee and 9 on LinkedOut..... As the publishing platform on LinkedIn is so clunky I only post a teaser with a link through to the beBee article. Hopefully my 9 LI readers will also join beBee!

If you're not already on LinkedIn then please stop reading now (as this message will self-destruct in 3-seconds). This is NOT a group to voice gripes...
Comments05/01/2017 #67 Zacharias Voulgaris 🐝#65 It's this social medium that used to be all professional and serious, till people started using it as FB, while it started beefing up its influencer team by recruiting random people from the street. I visit it from time to time whenever I need to find things to be grateful about. Not participating in LI "discussions" is one thing that we can all be grateful for :-)23/12/2016 #62 David B. GrinbergThanks for sharing that info and link, @Aleta Curry. I knew it was bound to happen one of these days. It was never a question of "if" but only of "when"? Here's a bold prediction: by the end of 2017, MS will have "cleaned house" per the LI CEO and his C-suite staffers. Internal cost cutting measures and organizational streamlining will occur, just as with every major corporate merger. If the LI folks think otherwise, then they're just fooling themselves. MS didn't pay that huge sum of money to keep staff they did not hire in leadership positions. But, regardless, LI CEO Jeff Weiner and his cohorts already have "golden parachutes $$$" awaiting their early retirement. So don't feel badly for them when the ax falls.22/12/2016 #58 Aleta CurryFunny I should read about this LI group on the same day I find out that LI is planning a new paywall, which will block some of the functions which are now free. Or is that a gag? Is it April Fool's Day in December or something? Sort of like Christmas in July, and yet not? This may spell the beginning of the end for me on LIinkedIn.16/12/2016 #56 David B. GrinbergThere are 11.5 million members worldwide on beBee but only about 200 on the "beBee Buzz!" group on LinkedIn.

cc: @Javier 🐝 beBee @Juan Imaz @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood @John White, MBA @Teresa Gezze03/12/2016 #52 Randy KehoI'm generally not one for joining groups, but it appears I have no choice on LinkedIn. Ever since I've been cross-pollinating beBee, I've been added to numerous groups I never knew existed, let alone had an interest in joining.
Apparently, thanks to re-tweeting some of @Milos Djukic's posts, someone at the Ponyter Institute thought I might like taking an online course to show me how, as a journalist, I can "cover complicated science stories in a more meaningful way." Thanks, but no thanks.
All of a sudden, I'm considered a copywriter, content writer, etc. Before beBee, no one on LinkedIn would give me the time of day.
Funny how that works.30/11/2016 #51 Sushmita Thakare JainI am a member of the group! :)
