    @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín - I am not able to post content acting as one of my companies, but only as an individual. Am I missing something? Is this in settings? Jennifer 🐝 Schultz

    Hi @Jennifer 🐝 Schultz,
    Currently we have the company page management to publish job offers, but in the new version you can create professional hives for a company to publish content. Anyway I send a private message with more information in case you are interested.
    Best Regards.

    Yes, I did that - but it doesn't like you post comments/buzzes to your company page. Just job postings. #1

    Hi @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín. Are there plans to have the ability to jump to the first comment? For example, https://www.bebee.com/producer/@irene-hackett/drowning-in-the-pursuit-of-happiness has over 160 comments and I'd love to start from the first one.

    When you get notifications of comments, it does allow you to jump to a comment. The URL appends a "#c" and the comment number.

    It seems it does not work for only for comments 1-9.
    I just tested a tweet from @Javier beBee that went right to the 17th of 19 comments so far with https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/connections-through-passsions-new-people-with-common-interests#c17
    ... but if you change the 17 to 1-9 or even 01-09, it just goes to the top of the buzz/honey.

    #10 Yup... Jared, we agree. But, just to be clear and to not get a bunch of purists hot under the collar... There is no CURRENT legal issue with the use of GIFs. But, the format is not in the public domain. It is private property. Compuserve can, at any time, exercise any of its rights of ownership.

    Just because it does not CHOOSE to do so now, does not mean it can NEVER choose to. Better to ignore GIF than risk a massive cleanup later.

    GIFs can be animated, but video is so prevalent now that no one really cares. GIFs can support transparency. So can PNGs.

    There is no upside that I can see to using GIFs and plenty of potential downside. I think beBee was very wise in choosing to not support them.
    Jared Wiese adds VALUE & RESULTS
    26/09/2016 #10 Jared Wiese adds VALUE & RESULTS
    #6 Agree on ignoring GIFs, especially if a legal issue on top of them being short and cute, but of no real content/value.
    Glad you also agree that beBee can do all the others! We need to get that word out there!

    #6 Yes, this infographic was put together by the beBee team a few weeks ago in a couple of languages. I'm sure they will update it.
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    26/09/2016 #6 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    The GIF image format is owned by Compuserve. They never forced their claim, but it's better to just ignore it. My only issue with this infographic is that video, both live and embedded, is fine on beBee. The same thing goes for short texts.

    To my mind it's incomplete. Apart from those two things, I love it.

    Perhaps like you can filter Bees on the following:

    Relevance. This will show the most relevant bees on the top of the list. The more complete your profile is the higher you will rank. Profile pictures are very important for the beBee Algorithm to consider you a relevant bee in the hive.

    Popularity. Popular bees get first places when this filter is applied. The larger your network is the more popularity you will gain, so start following some bees and get them to follow you back.

    Most recent. New bees in the hive can also be spotted by using this filter. The newest users in town will show at the top.

    Thanks for sharing this, @Dean Owen! It did well on LinkedIn before I brought it over to beBee and did several edits. Hopefully this will strike a dischord for anyone who thinks it's okay to just copy someone else's work and present it as their own, either maliciously or because they didn't care enough to do correct source attribution and linking.

    Good points about the importance of point of view, perspective, and having enough information before accusing someone of plagiarism!
    I found it particularly ironic that you almost accused @Trent Selbrede of that, because he is the last person I would ever suspect of that...he, like many of us here, really gets upset by plagiarism when other people do it, even if they are not doing it directly to him.
    That brings up another point. We, as readers, get short-changed and misled when someone passes off a real writer's work as their own. How? We typically form our online connections based on a trusting relationship, and hope that trust will be repaid with honesty and integrity. We take our time to comment on one another's articles, and sometimes we get very invested in what those articles say. We assume that because the articles we are writing about, and the comments conversations, are real, then the person who posted them must be real, and must matter to us, too (even if we disagree with them, sometimes). What a disappointment when we make a thoughtful comment about an article, and the supposed "writer" only sends an empty response...because they did not care enough to write the article themselves...they are not invested enough to engage deeply, because... "Whose Words Are These?" !

    Plagiarism is a bad thing, we get that. It also has sides. We mustn't rush to judgement.

    When I first started on social media, way back when in June of 2015, I wrote a certain post. Imagine my surprise, when my connection and friend, @Trent Selbrede had an almost identical post. I was angry. I was writing Trent a strongly worded comment when I noticed the date on his article. It was posted three days before mine. It's very difficult to "plagiarize" something that doesn't exist yet.

    I deleted my post. Shit happens.

    Another time, many many years ago, I wrote a novel that I was very proud of. It was about a Soviet submarine commander who wanted to defect to the US and bring his sub and new silent drive with him. His crew didn't know of his plans. Sound familiar? I finished it a month or so before "The Hunt for Red October" came out.

    Shit happens. Besides, Tom Clancy's story was better.

    On the other side of the coin, a few months ago I quoted a series of posts to a potential new customer. I really liked their stuff, so I discounted my usual rates by about 40%. They told me I was far too expensive and that someone else got the gig. Okay, that happens. But, the potential client was a LinkedIn follower. The "writer" that got the gig copy/pasted a few of MY posts. She even used the same images. The client recognized them. I wasn't expensive anymore.

    @Charles David Upchurch simply brilliant ! Think you have covered the main points and done it quite clearly. I think it's great when credit is given and attributed...and I get the impression the author has respect for writers and readers. It would not feel good if someone used my words without mentioning me :-(
    Great post!!

    Thanks @Charles David Upchurch. This really irritates me personally. I almost got expelled for this: A long time ago, I tutored English as Second Language students in college. One of my students asked for a copy of one of my papers so he can use it as a reference and to see how a "good" paper looked like. He re-typed my paper and turned it in under his name. A few weeks later, I get called into the Chancellor's office and had to explain what happened -- since I was the "supplier" - I was about to be expelled. . . .

    Recently, I created a presentation on a hobby-related promotion activity. A friend asked if he could use it. I said, "Sure." What he did not tell me was that he was creating "his" presentation and started presenting to local clubs, and getting lots of great responses. Many of the slides were mine - but there was no credit or mention of my contribution to "his" presentation. I told him this is not right, it's called plagiarism - stealing.

    It surprises me that grown-ups will copy and paste, or re-type text by others and claim "I wrote this." What! No, you did not write this, you re-typed / copied it from someone else. "Writing" is not the same as "copying."

    Here is another reference to mention: http://www.plagiarism.org/plagiarism-101/what-is-plagiarism/

    By the way - the same thing applies to the use of images -- photographs or any type of graphics. This is why I try to use my own photos in my articles. There are some good places for royalty-free images, but sometimes they are not really royalty-free . . .

    Excellent post @Charles David Upchurch. I believe this post combined with @Phil Friedman's posts, as noted below; and @Jeffrey Strickland's post "Who are the LinkedIn Police?", would be great examples for existing and new bees - Perhaps as a beBee guideline and not a hive. Hives, too often get lost in the shuffle unless they are constantly promoted.

    #6 @Kevin Pashuk RE: "umblog" ...that was reducto ad absurtum, but "by Jove, I think he's got it!" I'm glad you appreciate my odd sense of humor as much as I appreciate yours, friend.

    I was most concerned here about the egregious and plagiaristic violators, rather than those of us who operate in grey areas like the unattributed quote, above (was that from Monte Python's Flying Circus, perhaps?).

    You and @Dean Owen are both right about one thing: "Pobody's Nerfect" so even mostly-original writers can stand to keep watch over ourselves, to ensure we, too, give credit where due.

    I... um... am not sure... um... @Charles David Upchurch... on whether I...uh... should commend just you or... er... include all the ... um... other writers you... uh... cited. (is this an UmBlog?)

    Most of my posts are brain dumps of my thinking. Yes, I really do think parenthetical thoughts. I also read a lot, so there are times I may be inspired by a thought or phrase I've read somewhere, but with no ability to remember where I read it. To be safe, I try to preface the statement as 'not mine', even if I can't remember the source.

    Thanks for bringing over to beBee.

    I have lost count the number of times that I will parody, mock, or mimic an original source. Most recently with the Sound of Silence change riff to malign the HR/ ATS Circus or most famously # He4Sammich ~ where I held nothing bsck in my full snark idiom against Little Miss Watson - I guess I am living danerously in my word play, come arrest me - just no tickle squads, I can't resist those.

    #2 @Dean Owen my own inclination is to educate people, rather than to lambast or shame them. When they are unwilling to accept responsibility and change their behavior even after efforts to educate, it would make sense to ask any hive administrators hosting that person's plagiaristic posts to quietly remove them.

    Great tips @Charles David Upchurch. I think there are many people who are unaware of some of the things you mentioned above. My thoughts, if in doubt ALWAYS give credit to the person that may have even inspired something you've written. There are some people who copy material verbatim and never credit the original source, I can think of one person in particular (not here on beBee) and I think that person finally began to credit the original content. I want to believe this person had no idea how copyright laws work. My last sentence just led me to another thought, there are many intelligent people and some of them I believe were never taught about copyrighting, stealing original content etc... this is good for them to know because I don't think everyone intentionally uses another's content with malice. Is it right, no. So thank you for this!
    Dean Owen
    12/08/2016 #2 Dean Owen
    Fortunately we have so many writers here who are clearly original. The question is, do you publicly lambast writers who have not credited the original source. Repeat offenders certainly deserve a whipping, but for first time offenders we cannot ascertain if they held any malicious intent. It could well be just ignorance and an innocent mistake. I prefer to comment something like this "Great ideas/article, but you should really credit the original author. Looking at your profile you appear to have a wealth of experience that is worthwhile sharing. I'd really like to read your own written words here one day. Looking forward" Also, take a look at this: https://youtu.be/Ig6f5fT0Xho We quote Shakespeare all the time. Should we use annotations? Great buzz . I just met you here on beBee this week, but clearly you are someone I need to follow!

    Bees and Beezers, I brought this one over from LinkedIn. My thinking is that we might be able to come up with some "bumper sticker" lessons from this, and then ask @Javier 🐝 beBee to rotate through those as "public service announcements" in the home feed. Just something short and sweet, like:

    "New Bees, please create some new honey using beBee Publisher, and remember, only original content is fresh Honey. Recycled or borrowed content used to created Honey in Publisher should always clearly state the original creator's name, up front. Thanks!"

    I'd love to see an area on beBee for events with a calendar so bees could see what is going on in their area. While in the short term, I will certainly create some buzz & honey - I think events could get lost in a hive. Maybe an idea would be to partner with an existing event platform like Eventbrite.

I believe it is worthy to consider what makes a good triad. I am giving a metaphor to explain and beBee may find tis suggestion useful. The title of the buzz is "Love is to grow less".

    Wayne Yoshida
    29/07/2016 #25 Wayne Yoshida
    #9 I had this issue in the beginning also John @John Marrett. When you write your buzz, one of the things that is **not** intuitive is - you need to have an image to go with it, or aa link that contains an image or a video. If the image is there but is low resolution or crappy in some way - it will pop out without a hive selection, and go to your followers. Not sure if this changed, though. Best to always have a nice image to go with the buzz.

    After you write your buzz, and have a photo or a link with a good photo - select hives -- but if you don't have any, you will have to click on the search function, and look for hives. Select them, you have up to 3. Then send it out.

    If you don't select hives, your buzz will go out to your followers. I just did that a second ago. I buzzed about a bad dog. Not the best content, but it was a test.

    You can pose your question in the hive called Glitch Itch. Or, just reach out to us, and the smart and active folks will chime in.
