Comments21/02/2017 #16 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe stand out line from the buzz for me is this one :
" We can create processes that promote a cooperative approach to differences rather than processes that encourage argument from entrenched positions."
In the present culture swaying to populism and Andy Warhol 15 minutes of fame, this is one of the central challenges of our time.20/02/2017 #12 Phil FriedmanKudos, @Javier 🐝 beBee, an absolutely first-rate mission summary and manifesto for beBee. Speaking for myself, I'll take Javier over Zuckerberg every day of the week. What this demonstrates, moreover, is that beBee ownership, management, and membership are open to learning, thinking, refining, and evolving as a community. Which, IMO, is reason for great optimism concerning the future of the platform. Cheers to all!20/02/2017 #11 Kevin BakerAll excellent suggestions of keep your focus. Especially to diversify. With out conflict and discussion we all become a regurgitated robotic mush. I especially like the part of own your mistakes. Nobody is of perfection. And until you make a mistake and own it with humility trust is always guarded with the what if. If you can expose your mistakes before anyone notices, trust is imminent.20/02/2017 #7 🐝 Fatima WilliamsExcellent buzz @Javier 🐝 beBee
We can learn from our mistakes and from our successes .
We also learn from others mistakes and successes.
beBee is where one learns from oneself and from the other bees. An intelligent, insightful community 🤗🐝🤗 #beBeesforever
A community that thrives on authenticity 🤗20/02/2017 #3 Deb 🐝 Helfrich"If we create environments that invite cooperation and acceptance, people are more likely to act in these ways."
beBee is a fantastically successful experiment in Hive Mind.
It is so rewarding to see newbees show up and catch the vibes of respect & acceptance. Because of how easy it is to see that this is a community built on having a chat with anyone around the world on all the topics that suit your fancy.
It makes me certain of the success of this platform when I see how they quickly beginning sharing and encouraging and demonstrating their own unique style of beeing.
What an inspiring adventure to be part of a site that uniquely fits my needs, but actively encourages respecting the space of millions of other people participating in social media to meet their own utterly unique needs.20/02/2017 #2 Preston 🐝 Vander VenBefore social media any was popular, my Hives with groups were at the Panera Bread or St. Louis Bread Company as it is called here. It was a great place to drink hot tea or coffee and do all these things. Then the social media was created and we started do this from home with people from all over the world. Quite a change.

Comments21/02/2017 #19 David B. GrinbergGreat point @Dean Owen and @Javier 🐝 beBee. Thus, let me once again extend an invitation for all bees on LI to please join the "beBee Buzz!" group. Learn more https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dbgrinberg/join-new-bebee-buzz-group-on-linkedin (this is also my most popular post on beBee with nearly 12,000 views/reads and 100 relevants).21/02/2017 #16 Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝Just posted now the beBee.com (just the URL , no text) on LinkedIn, it is working, it is great because it says on the link : beBee, successful Personal Branding , so if everyone of us just post there the simple beBee.com URL without a word it will positively contribute to "the sting of curiosity" on LI members (and it is a nice banner for beBee too), it will be a smart way (no cost) to do some guerrilla marketing over LinkedIn, just like the 🐝 we put in our names. I suggest a try for all bees / ambassadors or/and passion users that have a LinkedIn account. @Javier 🐝 beBee @John White, MBA21/02/2017 #9 Anonymous#6 Very true Dean Owen!

"Promotional material should not look promotional." - Dean Owen
My example: "The Fractal Revolution in Society, Social Media First", LI long-form post..."promotional part:" - "We are on the same mission and fortunately we are not alone. The Fractal Revolution in Society, beBee affinity network (hyperlink) is the first social media".
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/fractal-revolution-society-social-media-first-milos-djukic?trk=prof-post21/02/2017 #7 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#2 Every time Linked messes with their members, we benefit. The recent interface debacle makes that stat unsurprising.
I agree about FB, although I haven't had a chance to really dig into it. I'm still fairly new to this social media stuff.
Still, only 13.7% with nearly every bee active on FB means I'm unimpressed.
I'm amazed that Twitter is at 11.33%!
If I had to guess, I would have hoped for 5% .
So few people understand what Twitter really is. (Not even Twitter understands Twitter).
So very few bees use it well. Most
don't use it at all. For those few bees to generate 11.33% is effing FANTASTIC
Just imagine if all 12,000,000 "got" it!21/02/2017 #6 Dean Owen#5 Promoting is fine, but I think your marketing team need to start producing content with viral potential. The video you launched last week is beautiful, well produced, but has zero potential to go viral. The memes and infographics look great, but again have zero viral potential. They lack either the emotional connection through real human stories, a shock factor, or humour. I was thinking to write an article on this. Promotional material should not look promotional.

Comments20/02/2017 #3 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhat I focus on is the relationship of the bee brand to quality of life. This article by Keith S. Delaplane, Professor, Dept. Entomology, University of Georgia also leads to this quality of life conclusion.
Kori Nadine Armstrong of The University of Southern Mississipi goes beyond 21 facts about bee's and focuses on 21 interviews with with Southern Beekeepers in the USA, from this she has produced a dissertation called :
"Being with Bees: An Anthropological Study on Human-Animal Relations in Southern Beekeeping"
I have reached out to Nadine and let her know about beBee. Franciane I know you will enjoy immensely her masters theses.
My perspective here is quality of life or life path. I am certainly buzzing that way 😃

Comments18/02/2017 #21 Chas ✌️ WyattWell put. @Joyce Bowen, I am glad you are here. For cyberspace, I feel that sense of 'community' more here, than any other platform currently in existence. I had never considered that it would be coming from Spain, a land that I had previously stereotyped from a North American perspective. I thank @Javier 🐝 beBee, and @Juan Imaz for expanding my world view and giving me a place to grow, as well.18/02/2017 #17 Joyce Bowen@Ken Boddie gentle prodding and poking of my professors did that. I remember being brought to task about stylistic transgressions and being brought home gently. PC is not always immediately helpful, but is not hurtful. Thank you John Nelson and Donnalee Rubin. Thanks to all for your comments @Paul Walters @Deb 🐝 Helfrich @Mohammed A. Jawad @Fran 🐝 Brizzolis and so on.18/02/2017 #16 Ken BoddieA succinct summary of the joys of beBee, Joyce. Our story telling becomes futile without a platform and an audience, and the fire in our bellies to keep going can only be rekindled by engagement. For me, writing is like throwing a boomerang. Follow a few basic rules and it'll come safely back to enable us to throw it out there again. But break the rules of polite engagement and the boomerang will either fall on stony ground or come back and hit us on the head. I see your throwing skills are well honed, Joyce.18/02/2017 #14 Deb 🐝 HelfrichPhenomenal, @Joyce Bowen!!! "BeBee represents diversity. Members join from all over the world. I can only imagine what’s to come. You see—beBee is a place for growth."
I am so glad to have you here and sharing your precious words with us.
We really are taking part in something special and it is in some way about separating humans from all the judging we participate in when dealing with people in our immediate vicinity. When a community is build on inclusion and celebrating humanity and the joys of being social, then growth factor is built right in, because we all spend our lives searching for the places we belong.17/02/2017 #10 CityVP 🐝 Manjit"After giving up for over a year, these things have breathed new life into me. My mind is greedy for more."
This is a significant thing to say because the act of breathing in is exactly what the word INSPIRATION means.
We are normally seeking inspiration from others but that breathing in is what inspiration is. Inspiration is not a hope, it is an action and I do see that in you. My mother has a huge aneurysm in her head, the specialist we took her to recommended we operate immediately, but when we asked him what the prognosis is for recovery after the operation, it was hardly worth considering. Yet that was 12 years ago.
Engaging life this way also sends a message out to other people who have multiple sclerosis that the affliction does not define their lives, unless they want to be defined by it. That by itself is another form of inspiration - the breath those people with MS take in recognizing that while there is a new day, take one day at a time and make the most of that day - as well as one can and is able.
It also represents a great testimonial to beBee that you recognize (like I do) that this is a place for personal growth and in your case a place to develop a personal brand. These are individual life choices and not ideologies - what you write here is about a life in action. I applaud that attitude, that resolve and that awareness. We engage the things we control and remain free in and this is where the rubber meets the road.
The free in freedom is a blessing unless we buy into the curses that accompany life - the challenge is to keep our mind as focused on the blessings, as much as can be or as Doris Day sings que sera sera https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azxoVRTwlNg17/02/2017 #9 Emilia M. LudovinoDear @Joyce Bowen thank you for joining the hive. Thank you for let us delight with the great quality honey you're producing. The quality of your writings (with heart, soul and sarcasm) are an inspiration for me. I can relate with your "I face my mortality every day now. But shouldn’t we all?".

Your scientific imagination will certainly come up with new ideas that can disrupt people habits and break the routine of their day-to-day clicking.12/02/2017 #19 Ella de JongWonderful read @Javier 🐝 beBee! I like the "You have to know that if it goes wrong you have the capacity to reinvent yourself." or .. invest your capacity in better ideas. I've got so many (huge) ideas, when one 'goes wrong' I'm still enthusiastic and persistent about the other ideas. I'll keep on following you to make me feel more and more 'at home' at beBee!12/02/2017 #17 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI am big on Founder Values and as a story unfolds, the values emerge from the story. That is why Mission Statements are stupid because success never turns out the way he planned it, unless we are paranoid about being successful. Andy Grove knew how to use paranoia in an entrepreneurial way because at some point in growth, an entrepreneur emerges into a leader and in the superfast world of 21st Century accelerated change, life does not come conflict free but full of friction that can be transformed into jet propulsion energy.
The reality of this life is that it sets a stage for all of us and some are given the stage that has the highest calling - this is given to the few rather than the many and of that few, many do not take it. Of the minority who do, the majority waste their opportunity but a few follow through to realizable potential. That is not "manifest destiny" I am describing but the reality of the POWER LAW. The Power Law is a distribution of this - no matter how utopian our view of the world, the Power Law is consistent. Once this is understood there is a natural jump to scale free networks http://mathinsight.org/scale_free_network
beBee gives me the opportunity to pursue my learning journey and like the creation of a powerful network - at a certain point lots of people want to put their hands on this journey - but that is why I find core value as important as human DNA. The big difference in my learning journey and beBee is that branding is a part of my Orange journey (and was before I came to beBee) but it is now only one of 14 colours. beBee is 100% Orange. That is why it is difficult now for me to operate here because injecting "successful personal branding" turns everything into Orange. My learning journey involves 14 colours - and I am glad that beBee is my hub for it. Only the future will tell if these journeys are compatible when the temptation is to see things in the short-term.12/02/2017 #16 Mamen 🐝 DelgadoThanks for the tag @Javier 🐝 beBee, I hadn't read this interview till now and it's a great one. Love this ideas:
"Enthusiasm, persistence, being able to adapt, risk taking, and to be successful, fill in a gap that isn’t completely filled in the market yet. But persistence is fundamental."
"For me stability doesn’t come from working in a huge company, for an entrepreneur stability is constant learning and building the ability to go through any situation, to know how to get up and keep going."
Let's keep going!!! 🚀🐝🐝🐝12/02/2017 #14 abhishek shahGood Luck to BeBee. I found it great because its simple easy to connect & very fast when it comes to posting an article or sharing anything on the platform. Its like seemless connectivity with app or computer.

Comments11/02/2017 #21 Lisa Jones#10 I totally agree with you about the hidden job market. As a resume writer for a decade now, I have learned about the many places job seekers are not aware of to search for jobs. I pass these out to my clients with hope they will utilize the sources I give them and not depend solely on job boards. I also give them a lesson on Applicant Tracking Systems and even give them six months of extended service where they can come back to me with a job posting and I will tweak their resume and cover letter (at no extra charge) to ensure they are meeting the needs for each particular job. I get very few who come back and have me tweak their resume and I really hope this means they have landed a job and not that they don't believe how fast an ATS will send their resume down a black hole if not written correctly.
Back to the main the subject Jeremy has written about, I believe it is essential to spread your wings and belong to as many different social media platforms that fit your interests.11/02/2017 #14 Ken BoddieI can't understand, @Javier 🐝 beBee, why so many make the effort to lay their eggs on many other platforms, including the Dark Side, where they, more often than not, disappear into oblivion without the excitement and reward of interactive engagement. I am particularly careful to conserve the majority of my egg laying efforts to the beBee platform, where I know my efforts receive true engagement. Other platforms are for my selected friends and family, as a way of keeping in touch. Besides, the eggs on beBee are so much more fertile and come pre-graded in affinity hives, wrapped in honey. 🍯🥚🍯11/02/2017 #13 David B. GrinbergExcellent advice, Javier. As I recently wrote here regarding blogging:
"It makes no sense to put all of your blogging eggs into only one or two social media baskets -- like LinkedIn and Facebook, for instance. However, on the flipside, it simply makes good sense for bloggers to leverage a diverse range of social platforms, especially ones like beBee in which engagement is high. Big social platforms are not always better for blogging. It’s social engagement that really counts. This is where beBee excels."

Comments06/02/2017 #12 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#11 There are always exceptions to the rule.
Here is my personal message to the world - do not hire me on the account of my brand because I will not work for you for the exact reason that you did so. What part of "I am not for sale in this space" have I not absolutely and fundamentally made clear.
Then there is the non-professional beatitudes that begin with "blessed be the housewife for she shall not enter the kingdom of branding but shall inherit serving the branded".
Not that I do understand the value of personal brand, but it is terribly hard to explain to my 3 year old grandson.06/02/2017 #11 Mohammed Sultan#8 @ Dear @City VP Manjit.No one can stand out in business without marketing h/herself.Some people think that brands apply only to products and organizations and some others think they are both the product and the salesperson and should position themselves in their prospects mind.It depends on your choice,not only to find a synergy between what you already have and audiences/prospects need or leave it to chance.By synergy I mean the synergy of objectives which may also differ between family members.
Personal branding will allow you to dig down inside yourself to understand their needs and objectives to provide evidences that you are the right person to help them address the challenges they are facing.Positioning your personal brand will help telling your story from the audience/the prospect point of view.So before you think of changing their perceptions you have first to change yours because you are only ONE and they are MANY with different needs.Given that prospects /audiences have different needs you have to customize your message by positioning the output of the three faces of your personal brand rather than presenting your story.06/02/2017 #10 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#9 Dear Lisa, most of all there is a place for us to understanding the instruments of marketing and how our data is not a divine right without our permission. Then there is also an individual responsibility to understand how hucksters engage and also how corporations speak in platitudes about the customer or the patient but bury information or at least market attributes that sell. Then there are downright scam artists which are the bottom feeders in this traditional marketing pool..
Now if I study branding and marketing - I will study both the best practitioners and forward thinkers (not thought leaders) AND I will also endeavor to learn about practices that are out of touch with citizens of a 21st Century - where citizen is above the hierarchy of customer. All of that is just one part of my personal learning journey - but an important part never-the-less.
The key is how do we do this peacefully and transform the way head without schisms and ruptures that plagued the 20th Century. I don't think we need to destroy in order to create, which is what this present POTUS would be more inclined to support. At least not at the grassroots level and that which we directly touch. Here the most peaceful system is that of attaining competitive advantage - if it can navigate the system.06/02/2017 #9 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#5 I always comment to friends about the numerous Pharmaceutical commercials on TV. They push so many drugs on TV and list all the horrid side effects, many which are worse than the disease/illness they are supposed to be treating. I think there is a place for Eastern Medicine, it can compliment Western but buyer beware... it can be tough to tell at times.
Good point about Maddoff! He sure did swindle a ton of money from many intelligent people.06/02/2017 #8 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#7 Personal branding should be a choice and not a dogma. For those who want to offer their services and be measured for purchase then personal branding has a place and purpose.
I can engage learning without being enslaved to a dogma, but if then I can learn without engaging in public it may prove wiser if not better for me not to be online. Not one member of my family goes online to my profile to check me out and even if they did it does not alter who they know me to be - and so if I am to view myself as a public presentation then those that view my life that way are complete strangers to me, for they do not respect my wishes but only repeat that I cannot escape this public image.
I am free not to accept this commercial dogma when branding is but one line item in my own learning journey. Are we citing personal brand because a master says it so? I say if this is a doctrine, a marketing or an attachment to image, I would be much happier deleting all of this and not be online.
If what you say is correct then I am battling an image rather than be at peace with life. Are you sure that you would like me to be a personal brand? People are free exhibit or feel good about their personal brand because that is their choice.
I can learn i private without a personal brand so if online my learning journey is nothing but a personal brand, a concept, a role model, a targeted strategy, an offer or something to instill? I can escape all of that by engaging offline. This concept which makes my very stomach turn is not for my intelligence, and this is my felt experience. This as a choice now becomes interesting.06/02/2017 #7 Mohammed Sultan#6 Dear @City VP Mangit.I believe the concept of personal branding does't aim at creating an image among the mass,but instead should be targeted at whom may find a synergy with you, whether they are groups or business organizations.You develop your personal brand based on their needs not based on what you can offer them.
You as aspiring leader has to convey not only your past core skills or present core interests but also a philosophical part of your personal brand which is related to your identity and history and often conveyed through a "role model" of being a man of integrity showing respect for others.These values instill faith,respect and trust in them and helps your personal brand shows a "special gift" and what people can consider is morally and ethically right to be seen in you as a consistent role model.Thank you for entertaining my thoughts with Amy's reflective song "Wise Up"06/02/2017 #6 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#4 Dear Mohammed, I have no qualms in appreciating the skills and abilities of top tier practitioners of branding and top sales people, for there is sophistication and elegance in what they do. I do have a problem with personal branding for the masses because we have enough bottom feeders and hucksters in this world than to encourage a trust in the creation of mass image. If someone does not trust me, why would I want to work with them and expend energy on convincing them otherwise. Personal brand brings with it an assumption of respect - whereas for me respect is earned and it is a relationship that if forged in the wellness of time. It is also tested through relationship - because disagreements and tiny fires do happen and then here there is forming, storming and norming. At the end of the day, my discernment, my personal pathways of trust, testing my beliefs, learning from my mistakes i.e. my life choices are on my own shoulders - and I will discovery them through my own journey. In other words back to Amy and her reflective song "Wise Up" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcIs3rAEytk I don't have answers for how others should live their life - I have questions that are hopefully wise.06/02/2017 #5 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#3 The origins of quacks and snake oil salespeople originates from a common origin of providing dubious products or services to improve health. The medical community want quacks to include eastern medicine, yet pharmaceutical companies are no better than quacks, except they pay for biased research and still sell massively despite actually stating serious side effects in a fast voice or in small print. Those who pray on people's trust don't care if 99% of people are wise to their ways, they will always find the 1% who will bite - and it is hard to save people from their own habits.
Spam works the same way, they are not targeting us but the person who demonstrates zero due diligence or discernment. Every now and then we too can be fooled and education is no protection against frauds, for how did Bernie Madoff make millions off intelligent people other than create a personal brand of absolute trust - and so image does fool otherwise intelligent people - ironically in Madoff's case it was called "affinity-fraud" - so we cannot save the world from these hucksters and where a relationship is based on money rather than love, it is caveat emptor which means "buyer beware". https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2016/02/madoff-jewish-affinity-fraud/460446/06/02/2017 #4 Mohammed SultanIn principle,we should confirm that advertising is all about selling although it implies "learning" through educating and informing audiences about specific brand or range of products.Unfortunately,most advertising or content strategies are targeting for" head counts" or "exposure level" rather than reflecting audiences feeling or behavior.Their main concern is to induce or persuade them to buy.Advertisers ROI is calculated not to so much on educating the public,but by the audiences exposure.The advertisers often have a held belief that their brand is 'larger than the world',and its audiences are heterogeneous to the extent that they can't associate the brand with a narrow cause.They think the more narrow the issue is the more the content is going to distract more people.However,for any advertiser trying to revitalize brands by associating them with the issues like learning or health or any societal issues we always advise advertisers to convey their messages through corporate advertising which value image over selling.Thank you for sharing a great post.06/02/2017 #3 Lisa 🐝 GallagherI detest those who prey on people with health problems. Typically a person who has health issues is already vulnerable because they want to feel better. Sometimes quackery can come in the form of what appears to be a caring friend first, then they are trying to 'sell' you a bowl of quackery. People do need to beware because it can be a matter of life or death. I prefer to stick with verified Professionals that I SEEK out. If someone tells you that what they will offer is the one thing that does work, do your research first! I've seen people who are self-labeling themselves as life coaches for those with mental issues as one of many examples. People, please take the time to search for Licensed health professionals, check their references by using tools IE: Healthgrades, vitals.com and ask others you trust if they know of someone who has an excellent reputation. Either way, you will pay for the Licensed Health Professional via Insurance w/a Co-pay or out of pocket for people on the internet stating they have a solution for you. A good health Professional doesn't need to advertise via blogs.06/02/2017 #2 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#1 It is a transitional phase between people who have been used to traditional broadcast messaging and now engage in mass-scale following, and people who are using technologies to create personal conversation and now engage in digital lifestyle immersion. This is the difference Donald Trump = Twitter and Kylie Jenner = Snapchat.
Fortunately for Facebook that they had the good sense to acquire Instagram when they did and they are also developing Workplace by Facebook - and even though Free Internet for developing countries was a really messed up roll out because they underestimated the political savvy of Indian leaders, but they are smart enough to read market sentiments in launching the Facebook Journalism Project and can smell that one all the way to the bank https://www.cnet.com/news/facebook-journalism-project-strengthen-online-news-fight-fake-news/
Unfortunately for alll us mass-scale following still "trumps" treating digital technology as a way of life norm - so a $7 billion election produces a 70+ year old narcissist who has proven that he is king of marketing to folk who still respond to mass-scale. How many citizens are going to love the marketing profession after Trump has finished or is stopped in his journey of alt-right randomness and anarchy? It is exactly marketing quackery that won Trump the Presidency. Personal brand rocks doesn't it?06/02/2017 #1 Dean OwenPrecisely why the social media crowd is gravitating toward connections without an agenda, and precisely why marketers are desperate to create an authentic message in order to dupe people into thinking it is a real human story. I miss the days when ads were ads. See a picture of a product and want to buy it. No trickery. Now we need hone a sixth sense to distinguish what we see. But I suspect this is just a phase.

The only T-Shirt I wear at beBee is one that says "GET BUZZING" i.e.
1. Do you get it? [The "GET"]
2. Are you doing it? [The "BUZZING"]
and all of that wrapped up in my personal world of learning. I look forward to your professional perspectives on digital marketing and your personal touch.
I am a life that is buzzing rather than a buzz marketing. Another life that buzzes very well here is @Mamen 🐝 Delgado - and that is what I call "affinity".

Comments02/02/2017 #2 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#1 In my case Dean, there is a consistency between not paying attention to my birthday online, because I do not pay attention to it at home.
I know our information is sold or shared without our knowledge because a long time ago I made a spelling era in typing in my company information to Fast Company. When I began receiving mail I knew who had sold the information.
This is not a simple case of not wanting my birth date online, it is about who my personal information belongs to. Over time we will realize that this information is sacrosanct (and probably years from now. Today it is far from that level of highest principles.02/02/2017 #1 Dean OwenThe digitalisation of one personal life is ultimately causing the digitalisation of humanity, and that is sad. Facebook will however remain one of my preferred venues as it gives the tools to segment what you consider private or public through it's privacy settings. I pay no heed to birthday reminders or birthday wishes via Facebook. If I didn't know someones birthday without having to see a pop up, I don't deserve the right to wish them birthday wishes. It's altogether too convenient. Facebook's phenomenal success ultimately boils down to it being a communication tool first. A tool that enables me to share personal photos/videos/updates with specific people.
