    Great information! Another thing to consider is that they do all of this on their phone. My son is a "Z" and he uses his laptop for writing papers and that's about it. He watches Netflix and YouTube on a 3.5 inch screen. It is important that your marketing to this generation in a mobile context or you may miss them.

    Great tips @Emily Forget (Newbee!). I prefer organic and engagement networking. I've met most of my connections this way with the exception of twitter which is a bit more complicated and time consuming. Another note: Re-posting other's content over one's own tends to help a person make new connections too. I repost content I like or content I feel is pertinent to others which may not apply to me. If I can help another, then my job is done ;-) Also, unless Linkedin has changed things, many people do not receive the personalized messages, so I gave up on those. I'm not saying people should... I was told numerous times after connecting that the person never received my personalized request and vice versa. Thanks for this!

    Great advice for startups. Josh : "Your customers will stay with you when they’re having success with your solution. If you want to keep and grow your customer base, which we all should, then interview your customers to find out what they need and where they are having success. It’s also not a bad idea to create a Customer Advisory Board to harbor and generate new ideas for your product. If your customers know you’re listening and they get to have an impact on the direction of your product – they will be your best advocates."

    Sadly, I believe that "Brandolini's law" is getting worse; this is a very, very bad situation --make NO MISTAKE! The author's estimate that it requires "one order of magnitude more effort to combat fake news via the presentation of the actual facts"... is, I believe, rapidly approaching TWO OR MORE ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE more effort. This doesn't mean that we should give up --but it does add even more logistical obstacles to the effort of countering propaganda with truth; for in the process of "increasing the volume" (even though the message be one of truth)...the net effect is one of such a tremendous amount of "noise"...that the uninformed/uneducated will most likely be simply overwhelmed; unable to know what to believe! This increases the likelihood of people simply "TUNING OUT". Make no mistake --this really is VERY BAD; indeed the FDA (just this week) has already dramatically lowered the bar for acceptable evidence rules regarding approval of new medications. I don't know what the answer is --I do know the effects of overloading the delivery systems in communications...positive feedback loops of (sometimes painful, sometimes ecstatic) meaningless, incoherent distortion...
    Harvey Lloyd

    @Milos Djukic this situation is challenging. We have seen politics lead the way in misinformation as a deterrent to truth. This has become so acceptable that it is not really the truth anymore that we seek, but yet the results of any information that gets us what we want.

    Once someone stands up in the theatre yells "FIRE" please scream the truth all you want, people will still be clamouring for the doors. The story will unfold over time as each fleeing movie goer settles into their eye witness report.

    Unfortunately, news and media in general have become fluid in bending opinions and emotions with total disregard for truth. Within the global warming issue the facts have been so clouded the issue has become an apathetic discussion with folks that have emotions, not informed opinions.

    My personal take on global warming is that climate is changing. But why are we trying to monetize global warming through charity, carbon exchanges and most importantly why are we arguing about science?

    New Orleans is sinking into the Gulf while measurable Gulf levels are rising. I don't need science, i need a ruler and ruled tablet and fat number 2 pencil. Maybe a wooden 12" ruler.

    Misinformation pays money; Bends the public opinion in a direction that someone or something benefits. Facts just get in the way.

    Thanks for sharing this excellent article, Milos. We must not let misinformation or fake news usurp the truth in today's frenetic mobile, digital and virtual Information Age. Thus, no one should be shy in immediately clarifying and correcting media mistakes online. The extra effort is well worth the desired result. At least that's one lesson I learned from 20+ years of working closely with the news media: go the extra mile because the truth is worth it and facts don't lie!

The kid had no idea what I was talking about, yet he worked in a hardware store, in the tool aisle. He took out his phone and started pushing buttons. He said, "Row 11." I went there. No good. I ran across another fellow, same deal. No idea what I was talking about. This time the floor guy showed me his phone so I could see his app. I said, "No. I asked for a center punch" -- pin punch, nail set. NO! I said center punch! I found it myself. Sheesh. Even with an app some people still aren't 100 percent there.

    How to Kill it on Twitter, 1: Clean is BestDoing Twitter right is a complicated thing. I can make it easier. . . a lot easier. I can't make it automatic. At least, I can't if we want to stay on Twitter's good side. And, yes, we want to stay on Twitter's good side.Many account growth...

    #15 I'm back home after a meeting out of town. A 3-hour return drive gives great opportunity for thought.

    RE your issue, FancyJ,... There is nothing that can be done in a hurrry. You do need to follow back more people... those you deem to fit the profile you want. You also need to clean out any unfollowers from those you follow. The mechanisms for doing both already exist in our app.

    You alluded to the fact that you want to connect with people who are active and who interact with you. We scan who retweets or mentions you (or another account for that matter) and add them to a list of potential follows. Then, you filter the potential follows list according to whatever you want. The possible filters are vast.

    Once you have that, you can schedule the follows. You can also set a bunch of them on ignore.

    You can't control who follows you. But, over time, you can build a list of people you follow who are active and who have already proven their willingness to interact (because they already did). Who you follow will be a subset of who is following you based on parameters you set up in the first place.

    That's really the best you can hope for. Reah out if you have questions

    #15 As I sit here thinking about it, I see that many people need to fix their accounts. There are people they follow that they shouldn't, and people they should follow that they aren't. Those issues are done once they start using the app, but, what about all the time before?

    I need to figure out how to fix it without piling on a ton of processing needs. It's important to me to keep the eventual cost way down.

    Also, a big account like yours brings out several new layers of complexity that I had not considered. The obvious solution is to have you follow everybody, then unfollow whoever doesn't fit a profile. Problem: It would take nearly two years to follow everyone at max safe follow limits. In the meantime, you wouldn't be able to do anything new.

    Yep, I need to think on this

    I am game, ;) Thank you for taking the time to dive into my little dilemma. I wasn't sure it could be done or at that even attempted. I will wait for your response or you can email me directly fancyjlondon@gmail.com Appreciate it greatly. #14

    #13 Hi FancyJ... The answer to your question is a definite, "No." Usually, I would say that following back blindly caused the problem in the first place. That isn't so in your case.

    You have 454,637 followers as of right now. You are only following 3,744. So, no, you aren't following blindly.

    You can't stop people from following you short of blocking them. That's extreme. Still, it's warranted sometimes.

    Since most Twitter growth packages focus on following the followings of others, there's a huge incentive for spammers, scammers, follower-sellers, and the like to follow big accounts like yours. Sorry, but there isn't much you can do about that.

    On Twitter, anyone can follow anyone. Your "audience" is that group that both follows and is followed. IMO: Your strategy should be to follow back those accounts that fit a profile you want to interact with and/or promote to. Ignore the others. That we can definitely help with going forward.

    This is what I mean about this app being crowd-built. You aren't the only person facing this issue. It's unusual, it's the exact opposite of most Twitter problems.

    It intrigues me.

    Rather than hunt down potential people to follow, you already have a massive potential friends base. You need to filter them and follow-back accordingly. This will require some thought.

    The problem, technically, is that Twitter does not supply profile data for each follower. So, you can't filter them. I have to go grab the data in other passes. It would take about an hour and a half to pull in all that data.

    It can be done.

    This will require some thought. Maybe we can break up the job into manageable pieces.

    Let me get back to you. If I come up with a possible solution, are you game to test it?

    I have quite a few followers the majority being no active, or phish. How can I get rid of the fake, xxx, and eggs? Will this program work for me with such a high number? I am desperate to weed out my account and focus on my interacting connections. Thank you for posting this I just hope I can benefit from it. Cheer @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian

    Well Mr Paul I based it on myself and how long it takes me to follow up if life gets hectic 😜 I thought I'd see how it went and then modify if needed. #11

    Yes, Lisa it looks like you did it right. SO did everyone else, even if @Pamela L. Williams is overly generous with her grace period, but, hey, it's HER grace period.

    Re your 403s: Check your email, this may be a back-blow from the comm error we experienced a little bit ago. I sent you an email on how to fix it. I'll be out today until this afternoon. I'll call you then.

    Thanks for this @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, phew.. Ok, I did this one right the first time. I just need to remember to clean out. I sent you an email on gmail (that was a mouthful). Many of my posts that were tweeting w/out incident suddenly received the 403 code and I don't think anything is tweeting from my account now? They were doing just fine up until Nov 3rd?

    #6 Update: I changed the beBee Producer image to 930X632 (the 632 doesn't matter though) I Left the focus in the first 496px.

    Sharing to Twitter is still perfect. Looks better here.

    #2 You can't be fully automatic if you wanted to on Twitter (at least not for long). It would seem we are talking about two different things here.

    Twitter is largely useless one-on-one. It comes into its stride as a many-to-many platform and as a content promotion/broadcast medium.

    To make that work, you need not just any numbers, but targeted numbers. That is what we are trying to accomplish. That is what this app is designed to do.

    Thanks for your comment

    #3 @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian yes. I AGREE. beBee is different than Twitter. Probably we need twi different sizes @Teresa Gezze will help you.

    Looking more closely, it seems like 930X496 would be optimal for Twitter Shares.

    Maybe an Image 930Xsomething would fit both timelines if we understand that only the top 496 would show up in Twitter shares?

    Thank you @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian. We have a task of improving the quality of sharing. Soon they will be with images of good quality, without losing of the original image and with the well-defined rules in each social network. Thank you for the feedback. Best Regards.

    I used a 2:1 ratio for the main image here just like Tess suggested in her post. Yes, it shares much better to Twitter without any strange cropping.

    BUT. . . It looks weak here in the feed.

    Compare it to @Jim Murray's Daily buzz for today. This one works much better on Twitter. Jim's works tons better here.

    Thoughts anyone?

    It is important to not be fully automatic, being present and human is needed to grow in the right directions.
