    Loved this buzz @Don Philpott☘️, and I love Canva. Truthfully, I don't know what I would have done without it. I create tons of stuff using it, VCs, resumes et al. Your daughter did an excellent job with that invite, for an eight year old. And that beBee poster needs to be circulated on all social media platforms, it's awesome. Please do share it here or on Twitter so I can share it, too.

    How to Catch More Buzz with beBee Live Video
    How to Catch More Buzz with beBee Live VideoIn case you haven’t noticed, live streaming is all the rage these days. But not every social media site offers free live video, which is fast becoming part and parcel of the digital landscape. That's why it just makes good sense to diversify your...

    Note: this blogging buzz was recently revised.
    Also, if you're on LinkedIn, check out this insightful and timely discussion post by @Melonie Dodaro about what's taking LI so long to roll out a basic native video feature (which is already antiquated). It's interesting that 2-year old beBee offers a free live streaming mobile app, whereas 15-year old LinkedIn still shuns live streaming -- even for paid premium users! Go figure?

    #49 Thanks for the excellent points, Lisa. Also, I really like your idea for a new Live Buzz and think that @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian and others might also want to wow us with a similar Live Buzz featuring their culinary creations -- or to promote a buzzing blog about this cooking and/or food related posts.
    Great thinking, as usual, Lisa! Many thanks.

    There are so many uses for live videos. Marketing, getting out important messages that connect with others and then there are those that do it just for fun. I'd like to try a short live video in my kitchen while cooking. I've put some thought into it but need a good set up so it doesn't look cheezy. ;-)

    #47 Thank YOU, @Proma 🐝 Nautiyal, for all of your exemplary engagement and blogging buzz. You've become quite a hit on beBee and one the leading Millennial bees in India. Of course, you can always cite anything I write here. No need to ask. I feel flattered that you would include me in your post. Also, if you have a mobile with ios or android you should download the "Live Buzz" app and consider doing a short intro "Live Buzz" about yourself and why you love beBee. This could be as short as 1-minute or less. Just food for thought to take your talents to the next level. Carpe diem and Vamos!!!!!

    As a freedom protector, i have always liberty of speech and actions. Beware of those that create issues where no issues are...they benefit from the business of fear saying everything you do will be prosecuted in a court of law or object to security breaches. Of course their comments are never linked to a showcase demosntrating without any doubts their claims. If live buzz was to be prohibited by law, blame the first cavemen who depicted the first live buzz in Lascault's cave 40.000 yrs ago. OMG did you see that @David B. Grinberg?

    As an IT Security and Crisis consultant, I have always opposed to the hypes like these. There is no way and mean enough to warn those on the of the perils and danger of these kind of hypes. Security levels technically are at an all time level that it becomes easier and easier to get hold of all kind of personal and private data that is exploited by others. We will not mention all kind og effects like cyber stalking and the fact that criminals most easy can find out when people are in or out.

    More and more live feed is under pressure since there also are legal issues at stake that need to be considered and mentioned. Since not everyone is in the circumstance to object when appearing on live feed on the internet, it is baring legal consequences I see nothing often in the manuals of those selling software and hardware. It is becoming a serious issue that peoples privacy is invaded even on the street where others deem it's fine to film an stream anything and anybody infringing of others rights. A very serious subject to mention as well. :O)

    #37 I know i am beyond schedule, My Bad, My bad..caught in family business and miscellaneous. At my discharge, i spent a lot of time on data analytics with team and prepare the webserver for Streaming videos cloning Youtube and exploring interactive capabilities inside the videostreamflow...taking communication standards to a new hight. To be interesting, my livebuzz or recorded one will be...not a standard one. If we want to lead all the way with beBee, we need to showcase what is possible, and what is impossible & how to overcome these limits. when I release my videoBuzz, i won't be featured alone in it. I hope it to be memorable and inspiring. Because I build relationships and and transform these relationships into unique Life Experiences. I will use @Javier 🐝 beBee's technique to keep it discrete until release, LOL, creating an unbearable impatience about it. Hoping to reward the patience by hitting the quality content standard @Juan Imaz set, and you know very well that they both set the bar...high. As per September's beBee version will focus on quality content, both editorial and technical.

    @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador. We are all still patiently waiting for YOUR first Live Buzz, my friend. Should we BEE expecting it any time soon? @Lance 🐝 Scoular @John White, MBA @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher @Andrew 🐝 Goldman -- and, just today, the lovely @Sandra Smith -- have all done Live Buzzes (as have other brave bees). Now it's your turn, Stephan. What are you waiting for? You are the founder of the hive "My beBeeTV" and, as such, need to display your leadership and set an example.
    Thus, please step up to the plate, Stephan, and hit a home run (as we know you will). The buzz about YOUR video buzz, whether Live Buzz or YouTube, has been building for months now and we just can't wait much longer. Thank you for considering this, kind sir.

I got into the habit of running multiple browsers and applied the same idea to my personal computers. Firefox is my favorite, with Chrome running a close second.

    Great suggestions! I've used a Chrome book for 2.5 yrs now, never heard of Mozbar. I did end up turning off a lot of the extensions because it's true... too many and it slows down performance or it may freeze causing you to have to reboot. I love my Chrome Book. Updates in a matter of seconds and as soon as you turn it on, there is no wait time for everything to load like Windows.

    Thanks, Don, for the tips. I had to use a Mac for a while and found it worked best with FireFox.Then I started using FireFox as my main browser on my Surface Windows PC because of the neat extensions like Grammarly and Awesome Screen Shot that integrated and worked seamlessly with it. When extensions work properly and don't hang up, they truly enhance the browser as a primary tool. Cheers!

    #5 @Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris I agree. Social Media is sometimes like a megaphone of someone's character. This is not always true, because it can also be a mask to hide behind. Either way, Social Media is still just a tool. US, I am the one choosing to use it. It has no use, power, or influence without followers. One day, I am sure it will be replace with a new generation of tech. But, it will be in the choice of the user of how it's used.

    I don't think SM make people rude or arrogant. They merely expose the fact, since people tend to be more reckless when behind a computer / smartphone screen, on their own. Also, just like the Internet can be used for both positive and negative things, so can SM, which are an application of this technology.

    Social media is what you make it, and like @Randall Burns, I take interactions on social media with a grain of salt. Used as a tool and in moderation can be advantageous but to misuse can produce negative results for oneself and others. Bullying, etc. will not be my problem, it's their problem. Interesting and timely read @Debasish Majumder.
    Randall Burns
    11/11/2017 #3 Randall Burns
    Interesting post @Debasish Majumder with some very interesting and valid points. I always take interactions on social media with "a grain of salt", to me it is slightly removed from reality in that we can never be 100% sure of the sincerity of the people we are interacting with. Some people may even act out differently on media than in "reality", and some people now may even feel that "social media" is more real than "reality".
    As with anything there are the positive and negative aspects associated with anything, I like to think that i see and interact on the positive side with social media and if someone is acting out negatively, bullying, ignorant, etc. on social media, well that's their problem, I'm completely removed from it.

    Thought provoking post, it's still generating responses in me.

    #72 @Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA- I stary my reply from where you ended your splendid comment. Studiies havvve shown that unhap]y and churned customers become the most loyal if they are won back. To reverse the thinking of those customers isn't easy but, as youvsuggested, if a company can do that then a hard battle is won. I fully concur with your comment.

    I’d like to address your comments re customers who provide social reviews. Today many more are posting their reviews on social media, as your post suggests; their comments traveling at the speed of light over the Internet. Meaning a successful, profitable business can be brought to its knees, overnight, by a barrage of negative product/service comments or reviews. That said, these concerns can represent deep, serious company problems. Which a company can begin addressing with the help of these complaints. Plus, though time-consuming, I believe it’s necessary to actually have someone respond to these social reviews in order to let customers know the company understands the issues and their complaint isn’t falling on ‘deaf ears’. Bottom line, most unhappy customers can be turned into happy customers if you begin to show you are listening to them.

    #68 Thank you dear @Lada 🏡 Prkic for your beautiful comment. You are right, and some of these social effects may be noticed on beBee. After all, it is a societal platform.
    You do understand my intention of publishing this buzz. There are so many factors in play, and trying to understand fully what goes on is not an easy task. However; we may notice the emerging of few phenomena and you highlighted two of them.
    I feel sometimes we are in a reaction pot. To predict the output with only two reactants in the pot can be straightforward. But, what if we have twenty nine reactants in the pot? I chose 29 because the graph as 29 social phenomena.
    Can we predict? At least I can predict your good mind will help us understand more.

    Dear Ali, I started reading your post by studying the title diagram. I have to commend your effort for making such a complex diagram. Some of the effects, such as the Ringelmann Effect, I found very applicable in explaining activities inside the large beBee groups.
    All effects show that human social behaviour is such a complex and unpredictable variable.
    It is particularly interesting to follow the flow of users on beBee. People come and go. Once ardent supporters of some people and very active users, suddenly vanished as if they've never been on the network. Some other suddenly have become strong supporters and, in a way, blind followers demonstrating the Ben Franklin "method" of social networking.
    I would like to have time to identify the presence of these effects in the behaviour of my followers (including mine). It would be a very interesting project. :-)

    #66 I am so glad you stopped here to write a great comment @Geoff Hudson-Searle. You raisee so many important issues. Social competency and the "third wheel" as new competitor to the social fabric.
    I shall not be surprised to have new need by the name of smsrtphone competency.
    I have noticed that some people are so busy with their smart phones to the extent that if they were on the same escalator with Bill Gates they shall not notice him.
    Social distraction is an emeging phenomena. We used to say that there is no better substitute to face-to-face meetings. Now I wonder the validity of this. Disruption of the social structure is obvious.

    @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee thank you for mentioning this buzz, you may be aware that this is one of my push buttons and a subject that I am hugely passionate about. If you are emotionally attached to your smartphone and rely on it every waking minute, it will harm your relationships – I find most accidents happen with people texting when they walk, not to mention what happens when you are in their line of the street. The new education for humans is how to avoid being knocked over by the person texting on their smartphone. So how does social media affect interaction in our society? Will face-to-face communication ultimately diminish because of these new social technologies? These questions are ones that many researchers have found extremely intriguing since the advent and popularisation of social media in the last decade. Within this topic, social competency is an important ideal that most people strive towards, but there is evidence to support the claims that social media is actually harming people’s ability to interact competently in an offline setting.
    Psychologists claim that increasing numbers of people in long-term partnerships are having to compete with their partner’s smartphone for attention, making it the ‘third wheel’ in their relationship. While technology has allowed us some means of social connection that would have never been possible before, and has allowed us to maintain long-distance friendships that would have otherwise probably fallen by the wayside, the fact remains that it is causing us to spread ourselves too thin, as well as slowly ruining the quality of social interaction that we all need as human beings.

    Edward Lewellen
    10/11/2017 #57 Edward Lewellen
    Dear friend, I can't help but think about the Dopamine Effect when reading this post. Each effect you describe is in response to receiving a "reward" of dopamine, or not. Each time someone 'Likes' a post, the author receives a "hit" of dopamine. The people exhibiting the Dunning-Kruger Effect receive a "hit" for feeling superior, the Ben Franklin Effect gives a "hit" in sending and receiving, etc. In the book "The Cyber Effect", it shows how people have become addicted to this reward drug that the brain produces. And, part of the addiction is like you describe when someone leaves a group or stops 'liking' someone's posts; it's because they are no longer receiving their 'hit'.

    #49 @Harvey Lloyd- /ou bring an important issue that is a buzz on its own. "We often forget that training is not only for knowledge, but also emphasizes what is important". People have access to many resources of free and ppaid training material over the internet. So much information that the face-face training has to offer training on how to identify important material. The role of training has changed and repeating what is readily available is no more the objective of training.

    #49 Again, this is an idea you have given me more than once and great methodology! Everyone should do this (tailored to your type of business):
    'Assume you are the manager of ten wait staff. Write a statement that describes success in a very tangible way. While you mentor quote it often, model it and watch how staff focus.'

    10/11/2017 #54 Lisa Vanderburg
    #48 Wise advice @Harvey Lloyd, 'Stopping a judgement wave that is coupled with agitation and i he do of misunderstood products or services will always look like a cover up. There is but one way to stop the wave, make the customer the spokesperson in the judgement removal.' Food means a faster turnaround, so the problem (if there is one) is a least immediate!

I'd also love to see Hotels, Airlines, Amtrak and others offer remote customer service positions in areas that aren't within a large city. I spoke with a woman who works for Marriott rewards and reservations late one evening. She loves her job because she's a nigh owl. I asked where she was located and she told me Cleveland Ohio. I also asked if they hired outside of Cleveland and she said that at this time, no... only in cities where people have access to train on site. I'm sure there are many who'd be willing to spend the extra bucks to train on site so they can make it possible to work from home if they aren't living within a or near a large city. I would love to be doing remote work from home for a Corporation that offers an hourly pay along with benefits. A lot to look forward to according to your metrics on this buzz. Thanks for sharing!

    @Jim Murray, I grew up shouting all the time. It was the only way I had to make sure I wasn't overlooked. As an adult, though, I have learned that I don't have to shout so much, but I sure do have to be present in others' lives.

    I totally agree that less isn't more in terms of being visible online. Maybe five or six years ago it worked, when there were far fewer writers on the different platforms. But now? Blogging exploded over the years, and there just SO. MANY. WRITERS. WITH. IDEAS. Who do we choose to "lisaten to"? To read?

    @Jim Murray - Great advice here! - I've been told over and over again that 'people buy people' - writing good content, making constructive (although opinionated) comments on other people's post all work - but I find that honesty (and it doesn't necessarily have to be the consensus view) and integrity are also paramount.

    As do passion for your industry / niche or what every rocks your boat - seeking to inform - rather than push a quick sale as you say here :-

    'Communicating that knowledge without any expectation of personal gain is, paradoxically, one of the most effective ways to attract people to you and your business.'

    Since I've started blogging and writing articles (mainly on architecture) I find that the type of clients I attract are more in tune with me. I can't think that's a coincidence...

    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!

    #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?


    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.

    #5 Agreed, Javi. I decided to ignore double-opt-in simply for ease of implementation and keeping it a free part of normal membership

    Opt-out is for quantity. Opt-In is for quality. Doble Opt-In or Confirmed Opt-In is for avoiding false email addresses

    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.

    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?

    Engagement has decreased massively. So true, the more automation the less audience. Great for the automators sites, not so good for anyone using them. Eventually everyone will get it, if your not present, why would you think it's social? Reminds me of all the people who are marrying themselves.

    t is a word game. Brand-Brandy. There are those who instead of being taken seriously the brand seems to take brandy. They care a lot about the brand image, but what they do shows the opposite.

    Many great tips on this buzz @Nathaniel Schooler 🛩 Brand Marketer! This is good for people to know as well, "You also have heard the stories of people who have been fired within an hour or two after sending a badly thought out Tweet, damaging their careers beyond repair. This is very unusual and only in extreme cases of lack of common sense and rational thought. These isolated incidents can be managed and actually benefit the corporation if dealt with promptly in line with prior procedural planning."
