Comments27/02/2017 #2 Robert C. Stern#1 Exactly @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman The whole part of Social Media is to have engagement. If you are not planning your strategy in the same way, how can you affectively get what you are looking for. Secondly, you don't have to be on ALL of them. Pick the top 2 or 3 that have your niche customers on and focus on those.27/02/2017 #1 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanThere are so many social media platforms out there, it's difficult to select what will work best for one's needs. Setting up a strategy is a plus so valuable time is not wasted. Your post is very timely and I feel research can be very beneficial so as not to be bogged down with too many sites that don't serve the purpose.

Comments27/02/2017 #4 Christine Stevens#2 I've used the workarounds and thanks for the link tip. I hadn't done that one yet. For as many years as software end user testing was part of my ob descriptions, workarounds just scream "someone effed up" to me and I have a hard time swallowing them. And now that I've been watching the Linked in post count even closer, the more I think it is messed up. I know that more people have viewed this article on LI because I've talked/IMed with them, but my post count is not increasing. Something is very broken.27/02/2017 #2 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianWhat can I say that hasn't already been said? No fixes, just workarounds. The only advantage I see to the new interface is that automated status updates look better. More incentive to just stay away.
For your list of posts: Store a browser tab aimed at https://www.linkedin.com/in/christine-m-stevens/recent-activity/posts/ for anyone else, it's not constant. Sometimes you just replace "christine-m-stevens" with whatever your name is on LI in lower case with a dash instead of a space. Other times it's your name in lower case without the space. Try them both.
For me, https://www.linkedin.com/in/paul-croubalian/recent-activity/posts/ throws an error

To see notifications without losing your place in the feed: Hover over the notifications symbol. Right-click and open a new browser tab. Might as well save a tab to that too.
I used to keep only one tab open to LinkedIn. Now, I keep 3 (feed, posts, and notifications). Maybe that's the point.
I get at least 4 requests a day to add LI analysis capability to myTweetPack.com No can do. There's no LinkedIn API to speak of.
I just suggest people use bitly links and continue promoting posts on Twitter. The bitly analytics don't come close to replacing what we used to get from LI, but they're better than nothing. Which is exactly what we have now. . . nothing

Comments27/02/2017 #53 Gert Scholtz@Juan Imaz Thank you Juan for telling more of how you grew up and of the formative people and events in your life. What I find most striking from the post and photo's is how you celebrate the mountains you climb, with family, friends and colleagues. Thank you @Mamen 🐝 Delgado for a fantastic interview!27/02/2017 #51 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#50 Dear Bill, I recognize from your comment that you understand this absolutely and more importantly the importance of understanding this. One of the worst things I learned from visiting an alcoholic anonymous meeting was worse than the stories of abuse that led many to drink away their pain, it was the few geniuses in the room whose pain was that they did not see their alcoholism related to capability and potential they never got to express.
Instead of understanding this linkage with their own capability and potential, they put the blame upon themselves that they had failed, when the reality is that it is a society and systems of work that failed to recognize their capability and to show them that they were normal in a crazy professional system. Our very work systems continue to be a great thief of human potential.
In these few geniuses drowned in their sorrow and darkness, all their craziness and drunken existence was in actuality massive potential with no outlet, where brilliance was raped by daily attacks of boredom and where this massive inner conflict was being expressed in a prison of hidden and ultimately lost human potency. A potential that simply exploded into something else - a life caged within itself - one that should have been virtuous, but now in revolved in the death-throes of a viscous cycle.
How is it that in what we cite as a century of innovative development that we lose people whose gifts we may never see or worse use up whatever innovation they had and not recognize them for this contribution, leaving them on a scrap-heap?27/02/2017 #50 Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand Ambassador@CityVP 🐝 Manjit: Hi CityVP #49 : I do agree with your recap here, " Fight alone is good, but one must learn is the flow in that fight. " I was fortunate to meet Steve Jobs early in my career, that will be another buzz of honey to post. Leaders of companies that are on the cutting edge like Amazon, Jeff Bezos & others do need at times need to have good mentors to help them to scale the business & succeed in business. I can remember working for a Stephen Dukker in Chicago that started a mail order company later that became the 3rd largest mfg. of pcs., called eMachines. I have been fortunate to have worked with some cool people like Jim Crane who started EGL Logistics, later sold to CEVA Logistics & 2 years later is now Chairman of Crane Worldwide & he owns the Houston Astros. Great talet at the top at times do need to have great mentors also. Best regards, Bill Stankiewicz, Supply Chain Executive, www.savannahsupplychain.com , Phone 1.404.750.3200, any bee can call me 24 x 7 :~))27/02/2017 #49 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhat this interview shows me is why Javier and Juan are so good for each other, they complement each other like yin-yang. This is the same yin-yang I saw in the relationship of the founders of Hewlett-Packard, where William Hewlett is to David Packard, what Javier is to Juan. I see it in the relationship of Serge Bryn and Larry Page they too complemented each other.
The question that is important to me is challenge and fight and here Arnold Schwarzenegger is different from Oprah Winfrey. There respective fight is different, there respective challenge is different but both succeed in their respective worlds because they married challenge with capability. There experiences are different from Peewee Herman and Kaitlyn Jenner because each of these people's capabilities are different and when I look at Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa again their fight is defined by the capability of their mind and their ability to carry challenge.
How we know what someone's capability and thought time horizon is depends on our ability to discern different capabilities and then from that discernment - relate it to what we find in the way people express themselves.
When Steve Jobs first went into business with Woz, his first break with Woz came when Jobs began to be mentored by people who he thought knew business. They did know business but at a level of capability that was not world changing and that was more fight vs flight than a business they could scale to global level.
With these people Jobs was not equipped to recognize that it informed his behaviour and when he hit the wall with his board, he had lost the company he founded. Second time around he chose mentors with broad vision like Packard and Bob Noyce . Packard and Noyce mentored him from major hurt to turnaround hero. Fight alone is good, but one must learn is the flow in that fight.27/02/2017 #45 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven@Mamen 🐝 Delgado I first want to thank you for this interview. @Juan Imaz Thanks for sharing your story. This love your system you shared. Your STEP 1 AND STEP 7 stood out to me the most. When I began on my journal, I had no clarity of my goals. Since I did not know what I truly wanted it was hard to create a working plan. I found for me, that I just needed to put my self in Action Mode, and associate with other People I wanted to be like. While I was in my movement, I had help finding what I really wanted, allowing me to me to your STEP 2.27/02/2017 #44 Jennifer 🐝 Schultz@Juan Imaz Thank you for sharing a brief look at your life - as I am certain that there is so much more to your story and you have been shaped by all of your experiences to become who you are today. :-) I see someone who is pushed by the quest to overcome any obstacle in your way!27/02/2017 #43 🐝 Fatima WilliamsA lovely peek into your life @Juan Imaz A hard childhood can make or break us. But you have made it out humbly and with great determination.
You turned all those negatives into positivity and looked ahead which is the greatest lesson of all.
"The greater the obstacle is, the greater the possibility of growth"
A humble man with an ambitious mind and who will achieve great heights.

For Juan, I have a very similar past from my parents -- that of knowing and understanding things about what not to do in life in a profession. Experiences like this really do shape and influence one's personality and drive. Thank you for sharing your story - it is encouraging and inspiring.27/02/2017 #38 Matt 🐝 Sweetwood@Juan Imaz, thank you for sharing your story. It shows every one has their own journey and burdens to carry. You briefly spoke about your father but I am sure his problems made it so much difficult for you and your family. I feel with you.
"I believe that every human being needs challenges in order to demonstrate his ability." -
Well said - This is a fundamental principle in life. The more challenges you over come the stronger you get.27/02/2017 #34 Phil FriedmanFascinating and powerful story, especially the reference to living with the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War. For my own images of that time are bound up with those presented by Picasso's Guernica, which I had the honor of viewing face to face before it was repatriated to Madrid. Reading Juan's story, I understand better the gritty authenticity displayed in his presence on and for beBee. Thank you, Mamen, for the glimpse into the heart of beBee. Cheers!

It is a touching buzz and restores the need of family bonding. I loved these lines " My family is very important to me. We aren't a perfect family, though we are stronger together than divided. Love feeds and sustains our lives. Although we may not always be together physically, we are always united through love". It is about time we follow your 20 recommendations.

You're right, things are much more different here in many positive ways. I am very happy about the way I have been welcomed, this speaks volumes about this social platform. It also makes me think of something you wrote in one of your posts, "Don't put all of your eggs in one social platform." It's true, it's so effective to diversify. I also look forward to having the opportunity to meet all of you. Happy Monday!27/02/2017 #17 Lisa 🐝 GallagherSo nice to see you with a buzz (no less) here on beBee @Ivette K. Caballero!

Best Regards, Milos27/02/2017 #14 David B. GrinbergI'm so thrilled to see you writing here in beBee land, Ivette. I think you will enjoy a healthy dose of reader engagement and interaction unlike what you have experienced on other social platforms -- at least that's been my experience per blogging here for almost one-year.
Regarding your family and trip, what a wonderful story for you share and what a lovely family. Of course, you offer excellent advice, as always, per your 20-points. I've been to Las Vegas several times and just love it. Perhaps some of us bees can meet up there one day for a USA retreat or @Sarah Elkins could consider having a future "No Longer Virtual" conference there.
I very much look forward to reading more buzz from you here, Ivette. You may also want to consider cross-channel marketing (pollinating) your beBee writing (honey/buzz) on Twitter, LI, etc. cc: @John White, MBA @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher @Dean Owen
