    "I think a guiding rule on social media (whether it be Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) is you need to be where your "customers" are!"

    #1 I can see your point, Harvey. I agree that we need to be careful what we put on social media if we have a career that might scrutinize it.

    But I am thinking more benefits come from engaging others with similar interests. To learn and grow. To share. To show you know your stuff!

    In my profession, I know hiring managers, recruiters and HR do indeed look at LinkedIn. Nothing there or inconsistencies are red flags. Solid content, activity, public references are golden proof.

    I am on the fence with this one @Jared Wiese You may grow a network but you also expose yourself in many ways. Folks can view your profile and misinterpret things. Career building in person allows you to check Miss-interpretations. To much info is just as bad as not enough

    #25 Welcome, welcome Michael. Hit the Cheat Sheet hive. There are many posts there on using the site. A piece of advice I've 'heard' and thought very relevant is this: Find posts or hives that really interest you professionally and personally. Look on the bee tab of the hive, see who belongs and follow them. You can later go back to the My Bees page on your profile and unfollow anyone who doesn't follow you back after a given time period. Those whose post your really like; same thing, click on the number next to the Relevant button on the post, find who found it relevant and follow them. Same thing; you can always unfollow if they are not like-minded people you want to connect with.
    And sadly; as Paul mentions; Trolls exist. There is a 'mute' option under the 3 dot menu option on that person's profile that will allow you to mute all communication from this person and you won't have to see any of their posts. Again, welcome and just enjoy getting to know your fellow Bees.

    No shunning allowed if requested Don! Plus we do have the Pet's hive don't we? So if you actually own the kitten, Allowed! :-) Plus I like kittens, We have 3 cats, a dog, and a snake and yes I have posted pictures of them all. One with the snake on the hunt for a mouse hiding on the log...Now that freaked out a person or two. So cute kitties or gory realities of having a snake for a pet...I think most would prefer the cute kitten that fit into the palm of your hand. LOL~ #22

    "Users have a great time on Bebee because they have access to content that really interested them, personally and professionally. When you spend a certain time on this network you begin to feel a sense of community that you have not experimented before in any other social media network. It is not only people trying to sell their stuff. Bebee is not LinkedIn’s competitor anymore, Bebee is more than that and it is growing and growing and growing. Don’t miss it."

    Facebook might muscle-in on LinkedIn’s recruiting business with ways for business Pages to promote job listings. The new Jobs features could give companies another reason to drive traffic to their Facebook Page beyond marketing their products in the News Feed, while also allowing them to pay the social network to get their open position in front of more candidates.

    Kudos on another exemplary read, @Neil Hughes. It sounds like @Sarah Elkins has put together a wonderful conference with an impressive list of speakers. As I've previously written, folks should not rely on social media networking alone because, while helpful, it will only get one so far.
    To be an outstanding networker requires taking the leap from online networking to offline networking in-person. That's really how one solidifies meaningful relationships. Unfortunately, this is becoming less and less commonplace in today's fast-paced mobile, digital and virtual world -- especially among Millennials and Gen Z.
    Therefore, I commend Sarah for taking the time, effort and energy to arrange this conference. The only downside I see is the cost. Then again, one can't always put a price tag on the long-term value of building in-person networking relationships.

    Neil Hughes.To be face -to -face with online friends is an interesting experience.But people interest in conferences goes beyond our online dreams to the realities of our markets.It goes beyond personal preferences to seeking diverse,specialized and multi-faced information that no single platform can offered. When you go off-line you will be surprised to know how far our textual databases differs from the realty of a numerical world.

    Having been on LinkedIn and Facebook for over ten years, I agree in principle, Javier, but not necessarily in practice. Algorithms, in my opinion, favour a rather strict military precision arrangement where nothing falling outside of requirement is allowed. When the requirement for Facebook is to encourage personal stories, pictures, etc., it also showcases the often silliness of our natures (Look at my dog! Look at my dog!). The interaction it causes amounts to "She's beautiful! What a gorgeous dog!" That's well and good, but so many of us (big US) are weary of the self-proclaimed ME, preferring to interact, hopefully, on a level of interest and concern with the world. Your dog ain't making the world better (cute as she is), and the world isn't going to get better unless we examine and exchange ideas. I much prefer beeBee, where I can read intelligent discourses like #Ali Anani and many others. I want to LEARN not PRONOUNCE.

    beBee is the fusion of the past and the future, the personal and professional interests. It is the platform of choice- with which bees to connect, which hives to establish or join, which topic to engage with or not. It is being authentic without losing social ties.
    The emerging trend of triads formation is unique to beBee and triads build social societies.
    BeBee is the cell with similar cells building tissues and relevant tissues forming organs. A hive is a cell, few hives may develop into tissues and then into specialized organs. Each organ has its own function, but never forgets it is part of the whole living body, BeBee is the natural buildup and growth.

    #26 Thank you, Gerald, for the sour out. You are spot on. As Javier says, there is room for all on beBee, to socialize or engage intellectually, to goof around or be serious. That is why strictly quantitative comparisons between beBee and other platforms is misleading and self-defeating. If it were up to me, I would emphasize, again as Javier does, the "richness" of the platform, and the ability to tailor a personal niche to meet your needs, tastes, and objectives. Cheers!

    #6 John, you are right that you helped - all of your discussion, not just the caveats part. You challenged me to think a little more about the numbers, which is always good.

    In terms of engagement, the percentages still work out lower for beBee, but that last post got as much discussion here as LinkedIn, which I think is largely a factor of topic and exposure. Engagement takes time to build, in my experieince. You're not going to get great numbers right out of the gate, or even three months in. Topic choice doesn't hurt either. @Steve Blakeman received hundreds of comments on a piece about oversharing on social media because the trigger for his piece was Kim Kardashian. Not all the comments were very nice, but the name "Kardashian" did evoke a response. When measuring engagement, you have to look at some more "squishy" data points than just how many followers, views, and comments you have.

    #7 @Vincent Andrew, it was not my intent to temper enthusiasm. beBee is a fantastic platform and anyone who is into social media would be foolish to turn down an opportunity to make use of it.

    I don't know if there is just "more" good stuff here, or if it is more accessible. LinkedIn is a difficult platform to get noticed on because of volume and the way the Pulse feed works. Eventually, if you know how to pick your way through your contacts, groups, and topics, you can find a wealth of good information on LinkedIn. It is just easier on beBee because of the affinity networking.

    #5 "I'd argue that my numbers were not open to question since they were not manipulated in anyway." sez @Christine Stevens.

    "I'm not disputing your numbers, Christine" sez John. I'm confirming that the way in which beBee counts things is different from the way LinkedIn counts things. I'm glad that you accept - and want to use - my clarification re the difference in how beBee and LinkedIn count Comments. Especially since it affects how we interpret "raw data" into numbers. The same common sense applies when comparing beBee 'views' vs. LinkedIn 'views'.

    There's a subtle difference between 'raw data' and 'valid data'. There's abundant evidence that beBee and LinkedIn are using different measurement systems. It's provable for Comments. It's obvious for Views. We don't need to look under the hood in order to recommend a 'caveat' when unsubstantiated/suspicious numbers are offered up as 'raw data'. Too bad that neither beBee nor LinkedIn reveal their measurement criteria. But we also aren't idiots.

    Since you mention "throwing a bone": Yep - an acknowledgement by you that I helped your article to make a little more sense (at least the 'Comments caveat' part) would be almost as cool as me saying that your jokes are funny. It's - you know - "professional collegial"... ;-}

    Your experience - and, I think, frustration - with LinkedIn is similar to mine (since 2005). As is your appreciation of Quality vs Quantity. A pattern is that beBee Aficionados tend to grasp at Big Shallow Numbers when they draw a comparison with LinkedIn. Gotta admit: Their enthusiasm is undeniable. Their analytical wisdom ... maybe not so much.

    This simple framing question remains from both of our data tables: beBee supposedly provides upwards of 10x the 'viewership' as LinkedIn, yet far less than 1/2 the Likes.... WTF? Is it Quantity ... or is it Quality?
    Christine Stevens
    10/10/2016 #5 Christine Stevens
    #4 John, to say I am "thrilled" with beBee's numbers would be overstating it, in that it would imply I am somehow emotionally invested in the hit count on my writing. The personal, private messages I get about my writing mean far more to me than a hundred or a thousand views, regardless of how they are counted. As I pointed out, data provides insight, not answers. It helps me ask more questions. One of those questions is "Is beBee useful for my future plans and worth an investment of my time?"

    I'd argue that it is, but that it will take time to see a return on my investment, just like LinkedIn. I've been on LinkedIn since 2007. It took six years of keeping my résumé updated there and connecting with people to see any pay off at all. Since then, it's netted me two career changes with other substantive benefits, some fantastic connections, friends, and yes, some monetary gain due to those career changes.

    I'd argue that my numbers were not open to question since they were not manipulated in anyway. They were simply put out there. Raw data. One or both sites' algorithms and calculations might be questionable, but not raw data. Would I love to see under the hood of both beBee's and LinkedIn's publishing engines? Heck yeah, but that is unlikely. I'd love to deconstruct them and figure out how to put them back together again, but I am an IT business analyst and a geek. I'm weird that way.

    Oh, and throw me a bone please? At least one of my jokes had to be funny. ;-)
    John Vaughan
    10/10/2016 #4 John Vaughan
    @Christine Stevens: Thanks for correcting your original article's assumptions by including the incisive and insightful caveat about how Comments are counted on LinkedIn vs on beBee. It comes pretty much verbatim from my response to your article: "BeBee vs. LinkedIn : By the Numbers" (https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/bebee-vs-linkedin-by-the-numbers) in which I both cited and quoted you - even though your numbers were a little - well - 'open to question'.

    CS> "Reactions to the data were mixed. BeBee members were thrilled that beBee’s numbers were much higher than LinkedIn’s. Some LinkedIn members dismissed the numbers because they didn’t like beBee or because they considered views to be “vanity metrics”

    With all due respect, I'm a beBee member who remains un-thrilled at beBee's artificially high numbers compared to LinkedIn. Or - if you will - LinkedIn's artificially low numbers when compared to beBee. It's not that one way of counting 'a view' is superior to the other - It's that the algorithm, technique, or whatever-you-want-to-call-it used by each service to count 'views' is profoundly (and obviously) different.

    In any case, there's a non-partisan 'common sense' deconstruction of why beBee's overall view numbers are probably higher than "views" on LinkedIn: Because (just like with Comments), "a view" on LinkedIn is counted differently than 'a view' on beBee.

    You look at the overall pattern of the numbers. You scratch your head. And unless you're really committed to a predetermined agenda, then you have to get beyond "and then a Miracle happens'" analysis.

    If anyone wishes to compare 'performance' on the two services, it only makes sense to attempt to compare them using the same methods. Or at least acknowledge that the difference exists. The term "caveat" works nicely. It applies in the case of Views just as it applies in the case of Comments.

    Here are the results from my Twitter poll. With over 1300 weighing in with their opinion the results were quite interesting. Here a few of my observations:

    1) The poll was hosted on Twitter which surely contributed heavily to their landslide win.

    2) beBee polled virtually even with Facebook!

    3) beBee got more than twice as votes as LinkedIn, which only got 4% of the total votes.

    What do you think about these results? Just a fun meaningless poll on Twitter or is there something within the data here that might be worth considering?

    beBee is the only social network I have belonged to that has fostered friendships with people I met on the platform. Other networks have been good at maintaining business and personal relationship over distance, but usually only after they were established in person.
