    What's great about all of them, and others that are not on this list, is that they are like a Family. Each social media Platform has its own personality and identity.
    So when cross promoting your content you need to take this into mind. Your wording, graphics and CTA might have to be altered before posting on a different site.

    Eu uso 3 delas fortemente e na bebee eu uso muito o compartilhamento que nas outras como o grande Facebook você não tem esta opção e sim você só pode compartilhar entre as páginas e grupos do próprio facebook. Com isto, eu postando na bebee e levando o assunto para as outras plataformas, você já faz a divulgação da bebee, utilize-a mais vezes!

    Das redes apresentadas, utilizo Facebook, para divulgação de meu trabalho em fanpage e para uso pessoal com amigos e familiares. Instagram, divulgação de trabalho. O beBee em minha opinião e a inovação que faltava em termos de redes sociais, estou me inovando profissionalmente e como pessoa cada vez que passo tempo na colmeia vejo o quando sou leiga e o quanto tenho a aprender e esta oportunidade eu tenho através da colmeia, deste que me tornei uma abelha so tenho a agradecer divulgando esta fantástica comeia , quero que muitos tenham a experiência de ser uma abelha !. O beBee investe em seus usuários os colocando em uma uma colmeia, com plataforma individual em cada perfil dando a cada usuário criar seu próprio blogue, interagir, seus hobbies, seus trabalhos, sua empresa, suas buscas, seus conhecimentos, também fazer um marketing pessoal e profissional ampliando seu conhecimento na área que desejar atraves das colmeias, interagindo através do live buzz, contribuindo com informações diversas através dos buzz e muito mais...! Como gostumo dizer as pessoas que apresento o beBee, tudo que você precisar é... se cadastrar e interagir a colmeia tem as abelhas que as nomeio como polinizadoras, compartilham seu mel produzido, interagem. E em termos de métricas mil vezes beBee que todas esta redes apresentadas, eu e três abelhas discultimos isto e vimos que basta usar a rede, esta presente que as abelhas fazem todo o trabalho de polonizar, unidas em expandir a colmeia. Obrigada por nos dar esta oportunidade @Javier, por acreditar em cada abelha #tmj #ilovebeBee

    #6 One thing I do now is being more active on Twitter, is if I'm discussing branding or social selling, I will throw in a casual plug for BB.

    When I create author blurbs, I have my BB link there. It's on my website, and when I eventually create business cards again, it'll be on there.

    I set up a LI profile in 2011 in order to stay in tune with the Insurance industry, which was my career industry before I retired. I am not a FB fan but my husband is thus our FB account.

    I didn't pay much attention to Twitter until I started my WordPress blog. Now, I'm more involved in Twitter because of beBee. I have an Instagram account but rarely use it. I also have a Niume account, which I just started.

    beBee is my home base for socializing, learning, and sharing. WordPress is my base for writing - I have 2 blogs on WP, which there is a beBee presence on both. I also am an editor/author for another blogger site via WP. I don't consider WP a social media site, per se. I think of it as a place for bloggers/writers/photographers/artists and those that like to set up their own site and have the ability to be creative.

    @Javier 🐝 beBee I thought that by posting 'original' content on beBEE, then sharing it on multiple platforms leads the reader BACK to beBEE thus introducing perhaps thousands of new possible recruits to become bees . Is this not correct?

    🐝🐝 🌎is my home base for blogging, buzz, personal branding and networking. I also use Twitter and LinkedIn for cross channel marketing and making new connections. Lastly, I also write periodically for Thrive Global, the new publishing platform of Arianna Huffington on Medium. Unfortunately, I'm not pretty enough for Instagram 🤓and not young enough for Snapchat😐. I have never had a personal account on Facebook, but I do use the platform for my day job which has its own handle. Likewise, I am not on Pinterest either.✌️️

    Linkedin. To stay connected and apply for specific projects.

    FB, takes too much space and requires too many updates. It is out of my phone till im in a metropolitan. Still no longer use it..but plan to :)

    Bebee all the way. One place to do it all.Whatsapp for friends and family.

    Just gettin to love twitter

    I thought i was agnostic to social media, now i think this is what most people do, professional network and instant messenger. Few on twitter.

    Personally, bebee is a better place to start, get the online persona right and then migrate onto Linkedin.

    I learn better from conversations than reading when it comes to new things, in this case social media, seeing some good enriching practices here, networking has its lessons in branding, social media, writing and communication. It has improved the way i interact across the board.

    Suddenly many of my weaknesses look like strengths :)

    #6 I have been doing that but only when I'm going to stored tweets. I'm glad you added the randomizer @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian.

    I'm still going to play it a bit more safe and schedule each tweet apart from the other. And, I will add less.

    I had quite a few going out each day. @Jared Wiese, 🐝 adding VALUE & RESULTS, how many do you schedule per day? Appreciate Paul!!

    #9 True, Paul - I guess I need to find a middle ground... I found the scheduling of tweets caused more hassle than helped - but agree. If you put more thought into *HOW* you are scheduling and *WHAT* you are scheduling - it does work. It just requires a bit more thought up front, which some people don't seem to get. Hence your article...

    Sandra 🐝 Smith

    Paul, I used to TweetJukebox, now SocialJukebox.... The problem is, although Twitter allowed scheduled repeat Tweets at first, they eventually banned the practice so TweetJukebox had to as well.... As you say, people will abuse it even if they don't realise it's abuse....

    At first, I thought this tool would help generate engagement and mean I / my company was always top of mind. I'm now much more of the opinion that scheduled Tweets don't drive engagement - AT. ALL.

    Twitter is about the hear and now. The "micro moment" (to steal Google's marketing departments phrase). Thusly, I think if you are doing anything other than sharing in the micro-moment, you are not actually using the platform as it's meant to be used.

    I do share my articles on Twitter... but only once. Am I missing out potential SEO / Social media juice? Quite possibly. But I think the risk of spamming is too great to do anything other than this.

    If I miss some eyeballs, so be it. Hopefully they will see my next article instead.

    16/01/2017 #7 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #4 You certainly aren't alone in that respect, Max. Twitter's seeming simplicity belies its true complexity. It has no peers as a promotion platform. Toss in IFTTT or Zappier scripts that scan for specific hashtags you tweet, and it becomes a social media server cross -posting to any platform with a good API (FB, FB pages, LI, Tumblr, Pinterest)
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    16/01/2017 #6 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #5 Exactly, Lisa. If you schedule 5 tweets right now, each to fire every 6 hours, in six hours, 5 tweets will pop up at the same time and every 6 hours after that. That cause two issues. 1 - Google indexes tweets. Those 5 will count as one (sort of). 2 - They all pop up at the same time on timelines in spammy bunches.

    Since we are creatures of habit, if you always schedule tweets at say, 09:00 the simultaneous tweets could really pile up.

    The easy fix is to mix up your intervals. Some at 360, some at 400, some at 300 etc, AND schedule shorter durations. It's so easy to re-schedule that you don't need to go waaay out. The farther out you schedule, the harder it is to control. After I hit "Send" I'll go change the default to 7 days.

    Another easier fix is to use either the Daily or Weekly Frequency methods. They will mix things up.

    Or, for shares, use the store and schedule in one shot method on the EZ Shortcuts page. It will tweet 28 times every 6 hours and adds a randomizer to the start time. I may add the randomizer to the Minute Interval method

    I've taken to only scheduling 7-10 days at a time. There's a button on the Daily Tweets pages to add tweets randomly from your inventory if ever you run low.

    Your token issues are more likely a case of a troll you have than too much tweeting. Stay under 100 tweets a day.

    I don't think beBee promo tweets are a problem unless that's all that swings by and they pile up. @myTweetPack only tweets promo tweets and RTs from members and has no problems.
    Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    16/01/2017 #5 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    I have been a great test subject for this considering I've had my twitter tokens removed 3 or 4 times now. However, I always use the auto schedule, so my tweets go out every 6 hours. I thnk we found today I may have been tweeting too many tweets even though the time interval was ok? Also, you told me that the tweets should have variety? So, by that... meaning I should not be tweeting everything beBee marketing eg? I'm trying so hard to follow all the twitter rules but they sure can be confusing. If I schedule say 5 tweets on the app within minutes of each other even though they are all from different users and I'm using "Minute by minute" with the default settings ( I change nothing) can that cause a red flag to go up? I always use the default, so my tweets are going out every 6 hours. This last round, I did have a one tweet that was double scheduled by accident. I hope my questions make sense? I don't want to get nixed again. Keep an eye on my account if you don't mind! Thanks for this @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian

    This was great for me Paul. I barely pay attention to Twitter and your buzzes on the subject have been quite educational and have inspired me to look at Twitter closer to see how I might be able to use it better and do so with some wise guidance from an Alpha Wolf.
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    15/01/2017 #3 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #2 Yup, and myTweetpack.com covers all those bases. We even take hashtags a step farther. We allow for hashtags to be rotated so you can use as many as make sense. They won't all be on every tweet instance. We cycle through them. We can also cycle through @mentions if you want to.

    I've used as many as 28 hashtags.

    That ability also allows us to cross post to other platforms via IFTTT (or zappier, your choice) scripts. I use #in, #fb, #fbp,#tum, #pin.

    We also build your follow-me-on-twitter link for you (sue it in email signatures, or your site, in blog posts, on your grocery lists, wherever),

    Building Click-to-Tweet links with Images for blog posts was the first function we had.

    I can add to your list: Have a description that actually says something about you. Enough with the Khalil Gibran quotes already.

    I'm okay with #11, ask for retweets, but not to the detriment of a clickable headline. In other words, Ok if you can spare the room. Since we rotate hashtags, we clear up some space. On a similar subject, "pls follow me" is begging and does not work.

    #5 is seriously tough to do.

    I don't believe Twitter is well-suited for engagement. It's far too busy and noisy. My feed zips along at 3-5000 tweets an hour. The odds of my seeing a single tweet are minuscule.

    DMs are not much better. Most meaningful ones get lost in the clutter of "thanks for following me." I get about 100 a day. Now you know why myTweetPack.com doesn't have any such auto-DM option. I actually started working on a "delete those annoying DMs" function before I got sidetracked.

    I mean, sure, engage when and if you can but I guarantee you will miss 80-90% of attempts to communicate on Twitter.

    Hello @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, another well written post here & I agree with you " Pissing potential customers off is never a good idea. "

    Paul, I have found that to build a large Twitter audience you need to: Here are my top 14:
    1-Post great content.

    2-Write a professional bio.

    3-Use hashtags.

    4-Place a Facebook/Twitter/Instagram logo on your blog.

    5-Engage with others on the social platforms, be real.

    6-Make sure your content is shareable.

    7-Re-share other people's content that is desirable.

    8-Reach out to Top influencers.

    9- Use relevant keywords in your bio so you rank in Twitter search. Don’t forget to include your city or region name to attract local users.

    10- Use relevant hashtags in your posts. Tweets with hashtags get at least 2x more engagement, and will help you attract new followers who are searching for those keywords.

    11- Ask for retweets. Tweets that include “Please retweet” in their text get 4x more retweets.

    12- Find people you know by uploading your email contacts to Twitter. They are likely to follow you back, especially since they know you in real life.

    13- Include images with your tweets. Research suggests that tweets with images receive 18%-20% more engagement than those without.

    14- Promote your Twitter account on all your marketing materials. This includes your business cards, letterheads, brochures, signs and of course, your website.

    Now make it happen, start today.

    regards,

    It'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.

    I 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 [1997]
    https://www.fastcompany.com/28905/brand-called-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.

    Kudos @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.

    The BULK UPLOAD of TWEETS to myTweetPack.com is at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RDDEEO1Fv6wjnwyj2boba1MrhKMXKcs0ROkWqQAEpU0/edit?usp=sharing the Excel 2010 version is available for download on the Shortcuts page as well.

    A How-To use it is on the Shortcuts page. In a nutshell: You just need to paste the text you want and the link you want to point to. Save the spreadsheet and send it to us. I just simulated adding 50 posts and it took a little less than 15 minutes. It will even build your own Share-to-Twitter links if you want them. (not Excel version)

    UPDATE ON BULK UPLOADING OF POSTS / TWEETS: LinkedIn's archive does not include link posts. I asked beBee, and it may be possible to bulk upload from here at some point in the future. They too have their hands full.

    In the meantime, and in keeping with Einstein's philosophy, I'm creating two spreadsheets (excel and Google Sheets) for bulk uploading from a generic source. They will work from any source. I'll add a How-to to the Shortcuts page after I test them to make sure they are a true improvement.

    #2 Yes it is and it's all @Lynda Spiegel's I was writing an Easy-Button (I was inspired by Staples) It was slow as molasses and definitely went well into the "too simple to be useful" side of things. It would have needed to go even further towards useless to be quick enough.

    LI sells the image of "strictly professional". Lately it's more like FB than anything else. In fact, I'd argue that it's worse than FB, since at least on FB you get to see updates from your friends, not from some people that are more like acquaintances than anything else. So, yeah. LI fails to deliver even on its basic premise. I'm so glad that there are alternatives to it.

    What a great inference you drew with the story about the little prince and Social Media @Alban JARRY. This stood out, "From the imagery of this author so many situations arise that seem so real in today’s world that the Little Prince undoubtedly gives us the keys to better discover others and deepen our introspection." That is one of the beautiful wonders of utilizing social media , deeper introspection by means of learning from others, respect of others and passions or goals we may share which can lead to professional relationships and/or deep friendships as well. Patience is a virtue. This story could be descriptive of beBee and its philosophies too! Cc: @Javier 🐝 beBee @Milos Djukic @Deb 🐝 Helfrich

    #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.

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.

    @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 !

Recently I have been contacted by Qatar Airways, Air India, & Garuda Airlines who "stumbled' across my posts ( FB, bebEE & twitter ) and requested articles for their publications...This week I have to give a presentation on "writing for a living' ( akin to leading followers into poverty !!!! ) I have decided to feature, beBEE as a platform for budding writers to gain recognition.

    Interesting point about LI getting rid of the BCC function on messenger - I hadn't even noticed, that's how little I use it. I did notice that they were sticking inbox messages to me in a random 'Unread' folder, but not copying them over to my inbox - the default setting... So I had 5 years' worth of Inboxes to catch up on when I finally realised what was happening. Most of it was solicitations but there were a few personal messages I would have responded to, and have now lost touch with the senders! frustrating isn't the word...

    Many of the posts of help suggest that one site is better for different goals, or how to post to develop your brand, sales or goals. I am not on of these folks. I also believe (No data to support.) that there are a great many who just wish to connect with like minded folks, no agenda.

    LI presented me with an opportunity to strike and find these folks. Unfortunately it did not work out. I am not a computer genius nor understand the motives or coding that didnt allow me to find like minded folks. BeBee however has been an emersive experience where i have met and shared with folks across boulders many thoughts and ideas that have expanded my being.

    @David Grinberg keep in mind that many folks are looking for professional connections with no agenda of brand or sales.

    BeBee is an awesome platform that represents a welcoming affinity atmosphere where all can find a voice. Most importantly i dont feel like i need to become a programmer to find these like minded folks.

    @David B. Grinberg Just sharing this comment I made earlier on LinkedIn... copy & Paste Hahaha

    " What beBee offers, is an opportunity for fair-play. You get to share your words to the largest audience of relevant groups via hives, and can be assured that it will be see. This is the first step in any writer sharing his/her words. If your audience does not see you, you have not started the race. Maybe some will see and find your words are relevant, maybe they will comment, and maybe they will share via facebook, twitter, email, LinkedIn, bebee and even WhatsApp. This I think gives the writers and bloggers an easy opportunity to distribute as desired. The other great point to note is the diverse sets of information available in groups. Ever checked out an engineering hive - you should give it a try! What about the Foodies hive - believe me when I say, there is no need to hunt for a cookbook before checking it out. Having a rough day and need some inspiration, well you WILL be inspired - I can vouch for that!

    As much as the words 'professional' are touted, one should remember, 'professionals' are people with lives. There is no need to get the same generic offering from one person all the time when on a platform with a carefully planned layout which makes selecting a genre quite easy.

    From my own experience, when I get onto bebee, I'm energized. Thanks again for this great post on bebee David B. Grinberg"

    @David B. Grinberg..had to delete half my response..hahaha, still on mobile...
    But you have captured so much here I hope you will consider doing a YouTube video for sharing. You do have a voice for it.
    The live streams are good also, but it may take about ten streams to get the message out , and shared via Twitter and Facebook...just an observation

    @David B. Grinberg as @Randy Keho says maybe you can do a speaking tour, or maybe you can tape on the video twitter and share..
    The clarity with the message within is brilliantly presented as indicated on one of my two comments on LinkedIn. Bebee does give the blogger a much better starting point . For bloggers who have built a following for a long time in one place , change may be tough. It's important though to note that many persons have different reasons for electing to stay in one location, for example LinkedIn, and it probably works for them. New bloggers need to hear about beBee, and I think experience the affinity.
    What sets us apart is the real multi lingual offering of bebee and the open network sharing. Another huge plus not to be taken for granted is the easy and welcoming access to @Javier 🐝 beBee @Juan Imaz.. the starters and owners of the platform. I sincerely hope these guys will always be accessible, and present.

    #33 I agree. Even hard news is difficult to access anymore. My concern is that even though the news was channeled through a very narrow band it had elements of quality. Now we are back to the pony express days. It takes three months for the real story to be sorted.

    Yet we made decisions prior to the whole being realized

    #30 In a philosophical way i agree. The golden rule is difficult but is our only hope and plan. But within the golden rule lies the greatest challenge we face. Free speech when it took 3.5 months of travel from coast to coast is one thing, when i can blast three words and it's available across the world in 2 seconds is quite another.

    Our original build of the constitution was based on tyranny. It has served us well up till now. Tyranny has taken on a whole new face that our constitution could not have even imagined. The internet and man's understanding of the mind have combined to create a flow of information. Depending on your views or perspective it is either the greatest thing since canned beer or the worst possible outcome.

    Public opinion is now controlled/changed by public opinion. In the past information was controlled by a group of people called journalists that honor and integrity were easily wasted and spotted. Today half truths, innuendo are passed off as real news.

    Fake news is still free speech and should be treated as such. We as individuals must be vigilant in vetting the news, and news outlets have a greater responsibility to make sure they're putting out verified information.

    Yes, inciting riots is outside of First Amendment protections, mostly because of its threat to public safety.

    Also, Harvey, there's a difference between fake news and a scam.#29

    02/01/2017 #29 Harvey Lloyd
    #25 Free speech is limited in its scope such inciting a riot. Fake news and other antics that play out on social media do have cause and effect. The larger question is when will the torts arrive to settle the cause effect. This will be the first sign of regulatory action.

    The licensing aspect may not be the solution, but so much news is questionable. How will we deal with the subversion of the internet. A reasonable person may present that we are educated and should be able to delineate between. But i am amazed at the scams and other systems of fake news that seem to gain traction within a group.

    The issues are on the horizon. Someone eventually will begin to execute around limiting speech in this format.
    Mike Rana
    02/01/2017 #25 Mike Rana
    A few comments based on the thread (I have not read the article):

    1) Free speech is a natural right granted us all at birth. It's the responsibility of our respective governments to protect that freedom from being encroached upon, especially by itself. Constitutions don't grant us any rights, but is a contract between us and the government that requires them to do what it can to protect those rights.

    2) I actually don't have an issue with LinkedIn charging its users to be on the site - maybe it will brings back some of the professionalism. Many have forgotten why LinkedIn was created. For what it's worth, I'm glad BeBee is giving LinkedIn competition; it will show Microsoft that they aren't the only player in town.

    3) Any attempts to license free speech will get struck down. Consider that anyone on this platform could conceivably be a reporter; all you need is a blog and a professional email address and you can act like a reporter.

    #21 I agree and some countries are already censoring what comes in and goes out where the internet is concerned.

    Believe me this country is fucked up and not the greatest place on Earth though yes it is much better than other places I could be and I am grateful for that.

    I apologize if you thought I was minimizing the rest of the world. Not my intent.

    I was simply giving the USA view from this guy in the USA and the possible impact it will have here as I live here I can't really speak to what "is" in other parts of the world or how it might effect them, that would be incredibly arrogant of me and Americans already have enough of a bad rep for that.

    However on the same note I thought it was relevant to mention the impact and how it might end up playing out here for those reading this who might not comment that are here in the USA with me.

    Hence why I said

    This is not aimed at you.

    I hope this makes sense and you realize I meant no offense.

    #17 I get what you're saying and this is not aimed at you.

    It's going to be interesting when it gets taken before the supreme court for free speech possible violation?

    I can almost see it.

    They are creating a union of news and state.

    That is censorship from the government silencing the voice of the people.

    Granted some have abused the holy living shit out of it.

    Licensing who has a voice and who doesn't is censorship of "free" speech.

    The constitution in the USA grants free speech not licensed speech and it is going to have to be for the lawyers and the courts to battle out.

    Nothing we are going to say here is going to be an answer on how it's going to go down or what the outcome will be.

    If I understand this correctly and please correct me if I don't, but did you just basically say they are getting ready to put a full censorship lock down on blogging unless you are approved by government to give your opinion on anything?

    I just want to make sure I am not over reacting or knee jerking to what I just read. So if I am off, please let me know.

    Bebee should just focus on better features, many ideas shared by their team, many by their users. The competitive advantage lies in making the user experience better.

    Maximum countries don't have laws to protect &/or prosecute those who participate in such activity.

    Just filter out the noise and motivate others to do so.

    Fake news people have no direct accountability to the users..I'm sure they won't be able to sustain a restrictive approach..it will boil down to freedom and accountability.

    I think a bigger and more crucial problem is fake profiles promoting prepaid services/offers...LinkedIn totally ignored my suggestion to have a verification cell where a user can seek free/paid verification for profiles that are marketing services and events which need advance payment.

    Prioritise the profiles which are made to dupe other users.

    I'm not really sure why I, as a beBee brand ambassador (with an a, you should fix that, Billy), should be concerned about anything at the moment. LinkedIn now has owners who need to recoup and make profitable an obscene investment. They are going to monetize every stream going and I would not be at all surprised if everybody has to pay to belong to LinkedIn within a year. This indeed will be a boon for beBee. But I don't understand a) what any of this has to do with fake news, b) why I should be worried and c) why the beBee owners (Juan and Javier) should be worried. IMO regulation won't work, simply because, people will just opt out and go to the underground web that will inevitably establish itself as a viable alternative. Your making a huge assumption that governments can control the Internet. Maybe 10 years ago. but there are too many people out there capable of creating alternative webs and more than enough internet entrepreneurs and users to populate them.

    Good job, Billy, sucking beBee Brand Ambassadors into reading and commenting. I assume that the video is intended as an invite for our President-Elect to "reach into and grab control" of the "issue". However, I have to ask what is new in the tension between Government's ingrained desire to control the flow of information to the citizenry and the absolute need by the citizenry to maintain a free and open flow of information? If I remember correctly this is one of the reasons that moved the framers of the U.S. Constitution to pass the First Amendment. Personally, I believe the greater danger is the fact that social media moguls are swayed mostly by greed, and are more than willing to see their platforms perverted for the sake of maintaining profit. Not to mention their willingness to misuse their ability to spy on and big-data-fy their user activities. My caution is to watch out for social media ownership moguls (and beBee Brand Ambassadors with visions of IPO-lollipops dancing in their heads ) who want to eliminate all exchange except the honey-coated, "positive" variety. Thank you for the opportunity to voice my last rant -- of 2016. Cheers!
