- Producer20/04/2017Golden Moments on BeBeeToday I have been on beBee for a year. Time flies and often I am caught up in the immediacy and novelty of the latest feeds, posts and comments. In this post my thoughts travel back to treasured experiences and friendships formed in this global...
Comments20/04/2017 #30 Savvy RajCongratulationd on your 70th post!@Gert Scholtz Amazing journey indeed!👌
You are not only an amazing writer but a very keen observer. .And your posts reflect your nature . Like @🐝 Fatima G. Williams writes, I too was smiling from the begining to the end of the post and the comments as well as it truly is written in the spirit of appreciation of the connects that speaks to each and every one of your reader . I am honoured to be mentioned here and to be a part of this amazing group of regular writers on Bebee. Thank you and wishing you continued success in all your future endeavours😊20/04/2017 #27 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#19 Sara did all the research, but her results bear repeating! "Een taal is nooit genoeg nie! Geluk! "
You are such a quintessential example, @Gert Scholtz of a wonderful soul for whom 'one language is never enough'
This tradition that you are helping cement, of chronicling the enriching goings-on of our global community, is one that makes me feel proud to be able to play a 'supporting' role.
And I feel so grateful to stand out via my words in such a way as to be dubbed a Socratic with some stellar individuals.
When the Documentarians arrive, and they undoubtedly will - this buzz will be one of their first ports of call. I can imagine you narrating some of the vignettes as they try to explain the wide range of topics and the open, accepting, and respectful tone that predominates a day in the life of a buzzing beBee bee.20/04/2017 #22 Tausif MundrawalaA year of golden moments. Happy Anniversary here on beBee. Finding one's name in our fellow bees buzzes is a feeling that can't be expressed or described. Literally here on beBee I have learned to give and only give. And such a satisfaction we draw from this habit. Appreciating others talent is not a feat meant for everyone but you have excelled this trait. I was blessed on the day when I got connected with you and found a real treasure trove- a friend. How lucky your nearest and dearest ones would be for having blessed with a wonderful human being who knows to bring out the best from anyone.
I am exhilarated to be one among many excellent writers. Thanks for this buzz my friend, @Gert Scholtz20/04/2017 #19 Sara JacoboviciVery rarely do I feel speechless, @Gert Scholtz, your 70th has just done so. Congratulations on the milestones. Thank you for the honour of the mention, not only to be dubbed as a Socratic, which I very much appreciate, but to place me among this group of seven is very humbling indeed. Gert, I feel fortunate to have crossed paths with you and I think you are a great example of all that is good on beBee. Wishing you continued success and I look forward to enjoying and learning from more of your writing. I would love to finish off with something in Afrikaans (I didn't think Romanian would hit the spot) so I searched and found the following: Een taal is nooit genoeg nie! Geluk!

Comments31/03/2017 #44 CityVP 🐝 ManjitAgree with the list of writers. There used to be a great difference between the Editor and the Publisher in old media, but in new media the focus is more on the publisher who is akin to marketing, rather than the editor who is akin to writers and journalist.
I will be interested to see how far down the publisher mindset rabbit hole we will go until we discover, the real gold was and will always be the writers, even those who engage marketing for a living. The role of editor needs to find its place and assert itself back in new media, for what was for the journalistic integrity back then, is now for the writers integrity today.31/03/2017 #41 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.@gert scholtz, you started a golden journey!30/03/2017 #34 Sara JacoboviciBeing long winded, I couldn't fit everything I wanted to say in this box @Gert Scholtz. So I wrote this https://www.bebee.com/producer/@sara-jacobovici/when-there-isn-t-enough-space-in-the-comment-box. Thanks for a great post Gert.30/03/2017 #32 Jim MurrayWow. I'm humbled. When you put it all into a single posts as skillfully and sincerely as you have, it really lets you know how many good writers have been attracted to this site, and how different they are all from each other. Thanks for doing this. I will share this far and wide. Great work Gert. PS, you should share it everywhere too. We all should. @Gert Scholtz30/03/2017 #26 Aleta Curry@Gert Scholtz, it has already been pointed out that you richly deserve to be on this list yourself, and most of the honorees have already expressed my feelings better than I could myself, so I can only add my humble thanks to the generous chorus.
Thank you for including me in such excellent company!

Comments15/04/2017 #12 Irene 🐝 Rodriguez Escolar#11 Siiii, creo que decir que... sobra o no ... 🤔 No sobra.
Para mí encontrar esta red aprender y conoceros, me alegra a diario 😘. Viva el aburrimiento y el momento en que entré por vez primera un 5/12/2016, desde entonces, ya no hay aburrimiento, aprendo y comparto con personas que me aportan algo, aunque sea de manera virtual.
Y al igual que Fran, nunca me cansaré (aunque sea pesada) de dar las gracias a los fundadores y al gran equipo que tenemos.16/07/2016 #7 Mamen 🐝 DelgadoEs muy chulo lo que cuentas @Fran 🐝 Brizzolis, al final es una cuestión de expectativas también, si las tenemos muy altas es muy fácil darnos un batacazo pero si no esperamos mucho es más sencillo que algo nos sorprenda. Felicidades y gracias por escribir un post tan sincero. Feliz finde!!15/07/2016 #4 detapitasenlacalle ..@Fran Brizzolis Me ha encantado tu post porque en cierto modo grita la sensación de muchos. Yo llevo poco tiempo de abeja, más bien de abejorro, y mis post intentan ser "tontos" para que la gente se distraiga y desconecte de la realidad diaria. Nunca verás un post mío de "diez formas de tirarse un pedo para alcanzar más seguidores en tus redes" o "los diez consejos básicos para mirar sin ver y escuchar sin oir: la clave para tu negocio" Pero me encanta BeBee por gente como tú. Gracias.15/07/2016 #3 Fran 🐝 Brizzolis#@Javier 🐝 beBee, gracias a ti y a todo el personal de beBee, y enhorabuena por vuestro trabajo y dedicación. El orgullo es mutuo y espero y deseo seguir aportando y contribuyendo humildemente a vuestra mejora. Recibid tod@s un fuarte abrazo y mi más emocionado reconocimiento.

Comments13/04/2017 #70 Deb🐝 LangeGreat analysis - and I agree views are not engagement! When people feel compelled to write a comment and interact that is engagement, as is sharing. Ultimately I am looking for the engagement that means I am connecting with people who want to know what I know as it helps solve a problem for them. And then takes people to the step of contacting me about how I can help!04/10/2016 #58 Renée 🐝 CormierI shared this on LI and in the LI groups I belong to as well. I also posted on Twitter and Google+. Good luck. Let's keep sharing each other's content so we can grow beBee and give each other more professional exposure. An attitude of sharing is essential. There is more than enough business for everyone, but we need to help each other.04/10/2016 #52 Javier 🐝 beBee#50 @Lada 🏡 Prkic I agree with you. Views are NOT engagement. Engagement comes from your followers. Views are great thanks to our distribution system that is democratic and gives you the opportunity to share your quality content through the hives. Have a great week ! CC @David B. Grinberg @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian @Dean Owen Thanks everyone for youe support. @Phil Friedman I dont think I need to explain to you everything. Take it easy and enjoy beBee. I am 100% focused on the new great platform that is hopefully coming soon. We are working on giving you the best user experience :) . You can have a look at the new features athttps://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/what-is-coming-next have a great week bees !!!!04/10/2016 #51 Phil Friedman#50 Lada, I agree that followers are an important factor in the reader response mix. Perhaps the most important. But not in threat you might think. I have long believed that the best single metric for evaluating the success or effectiveness of a post (or perhapsaseriesofbposts)!is the number of followers a writer picks up as a result. Unfortunately, it is not a stat that the platforms track, or one that is easily tracked by a writer. Cheers!04/10/2016 #50 Lada 🏡 Prkic#41 I think the issue of views will still be a dilemma, but I don't bother about that. I just pointed to some weird stats regarding the level of engagement. Until we know the real meaning of some data, any comparison could give us the wrong result.
Because of that I think Javier was right when he said that the real measure of engagement is actually how many of our followers respond to our posts with comments and shares.
After all, that is why they are called followers. ☺️04/10/2016 #48 David B. Grinberg#37 Again, excellent question @Phil Friedman. I completely understand your important point. And while I personally doubt that you will ever get a response from the arrogant "powers-that-be" in LI's ivory tower, I'll bet beBee will respond. However, I'm probably not the one to do it. Thanks again, Phil.

- Producer11/04/2017Why beBEE?1: Is it that people are friendly on beBee? The foundation of beBee is an acceptance that we are people with passions and some of those passions are in our personal life, and some are in our professional, so we can create a hive for a conversation...
Comments12/04/2017 #43 Tausif MundrawalaAll the reasons which one could think of has been listed here in this buzz. I am a seeker as well as provider and have gained a lot in terms of knowledge, engagement and friendship. beBee is an entire universe where certain areas remain unexplored due to time constraint. I am glad to be connected with you, @Deb🐝 Lange12/04/2017 #40 Michele WilliamsFounders, this buzz is also an example of creating a culture your customers or users feel and embrace. beBee's culture is intentional on the part of @Javier 🐝 beBee and @Juan Imaz and fully embraced and enhanced by @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood , @John White, MBA and the entire beBee team.12/04/2017 #35 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWhat a nice buzz @Deb🐝 Lange! You made very valid points above. Thank you for the mention, that was kind of you. I feel like I've been a bit AWOL over the last week, haven't felt well. I will be back in full force shortly! I actually miss beBee when I'm not able to be as active as I normally am on here. Thank you to @Susan Botello for the mention too! I really hope to meet you one day soon. It doesn't appear I will be in Cali this month but I'm definitely finding a way to get out to Cali this coming year. When I do, we can meet up! Deb, sorry about zoom last week.. it just wasn't a good week and I admit, I forgot about it. Email me again please. Are you 6 hours ahead of me? I'm on USA EST.12/04/2017 #31 Susan BotelloWhen we are given opportunities and doors are opened sometimes the best part of us can shine through. This platform has helped me to be more open in public and in return I have received more open doors in other networks and with my brand in general. Have to give credit where credit is due and that is what, in opinion, makes beBee special for me. Taking comfort in the hives. @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood @Javier 🐝 beBee @Jan 🐝 Barbosa @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher @Milos Djukic @Deb 🐝 Helfrich & @ many more!

These are two critically important social media metrics....
Comments09/04/2017 #91 Javier 🐝 beBeebeBee, an engagement-based community https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/bebee-an-engagement-based-community09/04/2017 #90 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorGreat post david, i do also believe that when you are a profound good person you get rewarded by interactions with others, while at the contrary you are sinking deeper and deeper while being a negative mind thinker and one way opinion promoter, you end up alone, isolated wondering why you get so few interactions, success or worse, a tsunami of people opposing your behavior through their own liberty of opinion. Lesson in life...do not oppose everyone unless you are ready to have yournown game..over. But if you do, it means your game and time in branding and social interacting is already over.08/02/2017 #89 David B. GrinbergPlease note this is an open platform with high user engagement and satisfaction. However, abusive behavior, trolling and harassment will never be tolerated. This is in accordance with standard policies and procedures of any legitimate social media site -- not withstanding how it might be misunderstood or incorrectly perceived by those who willingly choose to behave badly. beBee = successful personal branding and stronger business relationships through shared passions and interests 🐝🐝✌️️🌎28/01/2017 #86 David B. GrinbergJohn: first, thank you for your valuable feedback which is appreciated, kind sir. Since you are commenting on my post, I will respond to your reply accordingly.
Secondly, please note that I do not wish to become entangled in any dispute (real, perceived or otherwise) that you have with leadership/management of this platform. Thus, I respectfully hope you are able to resolve whatever issue/differences you are referring to below in a cordial, constructive, non-adversarial and mutually beneficial manner with the individual to whom you refer.
Third, whether you agree or disagree, I nonetheless stand by my initial statement because, technically at least, what you allege can still be defined as "direct interaction, feedback or engagement" from a social media CEO -- regardless of the specific interaction involved or whether you concur with it (which I am neither confirming nor denying, as that is not my place). That's between you and the individual to whom you refer. Therefore, I respectfully suggest that you please address such personal issues offline or in your own blog post, as you see fit, rather than here. Thank you.
cc: @Javier 🐝 beBee @John White, MBA09/01/2017 #81 Harvey Lloyd#74 I sense the stand off between the two great generations, one that was and one that is becoming, is a challenge for boomers to share what their wisdom so that we don't repeat mistakes. Curbing our communications so that they might listen or better understand (don't change the message itself.)is a worthy goal.09/01/2017 #80 David B. Grinberg#77 ...and @Javier 🐝 beBee, YOU are the most impressive and admirable social media CEO. Why? Because unlike FB's Mark Zuckerberg or LI's Jeff Weiner -- for starters -- YOU make it a priority to personally and directly engage users on this promising platform and respond to any user concerns with expedience and professionalism.
To others I would ask: when was the last time you received any direct interaction, feedback or engagement from any other social media CEO?
Never...that's what I thought.
It's no wonder Javier was recently selected as a regular contributor to Richard Branson's Virgin.com blog. Lastly, for any detractors, this is not only sincere flattery but absolute reality. No other social media CEO comes close to Javier, who is far and away the most engaging online -- period!
Facts are facts.09/01/2017 #79 Wayne Yoshida#74 Thanks for pointing the activity in those Hives, @David B. Grinberg - no matter how you slice it, Students and College are prime target markets for everyone -- and the students and colleges will benefit from any platform that enables them to demonstrate their "personal brand."08/01/2017 #77 Javier 🐝 beBeebeBee is the most complete platform to build your entire personal brand, engaging professionals through common interests - can be professional, can be personal. BE PROFESSIONAL, BE PERSONAL, BE SUCCESFUL !
The platform encourages users to display their personal brand in addition to their professional profile.08/01/2017 #75 Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand AmbassadorLots of good posts here, thx David for creating a lot of buzz here. Like Javier has note: beBee is disrupting professional social networking by establishing connections through passions and common interests that create more professional engagement and deeper and more successful business relationships. Its important to note that beBee and LI are different , and I tell people to start using both for different purposes. LI is strictly professional and BB is a network affinity based. Many bee's I have been able to sign up are told not to mention my name, mention Javier & Juan, I love the application here at beBee & the interaction from the Co_Founders & all participants. Here to help folks, call me on 1-404-750-3200 or see me on www.savannahsupplychain.com. BEST Regards, continued success for all here from Bill Stankiewicz, Savannah, Georgia
cc: @Javier 🐝 beBee @John White, MBA @Teresa Gezze08/01/2017 #74 David B. Grinberg#70 thank you @Harvey Lloyd for your excellent comments, which make perfect sense. Generation Z and their millennial predecessors are the largest population demographic and represent a new generation of leadership.
In this regard, I would note the hives "College" and "Students" have a combined membership of about 100,000 and growing. There is an awesome infographic about the reasons why BB is an appealing platform for millennials. I also recently did a Twitter "Moments" about this. Naysayers certainly have the right and respect of bees top off for their opinions, but that doesn't mean they are right.Thanks again Harvey for your potent points and keep buzzing in 2017 🐝🐝✌️️🇺🇸 cc: @Javier 🐝 beBee @John White, MBA @Teresa Gezze07/01/2017 #73 John Vaughan#72 Would love to respond, @Harvey Lloyd, but don't get your "I noticed your data set on the repost..." paragraph
Distrust is often (but not always) an underlying motivator for skepticism. A refusal to accept a common-ground of observable facts because "I have an opinion and I'm entitled to it" is pretty much the exact opposite of 'integrity'.07/01/2017 #72 Harvey Lloyd#71 The embracing integrity part is the part that scares me. Anytime change is upon us, when it is needed, someone or entity becomes the arbiter of that change. I know that i dont want the arbiters to be our collective political geniuses. They started this mess and lost control of it.
Yep i hate to generalize but market analysis is starting to come in on our younger kin. They dont like the comparative destructive commercials or marketing. They dont like contrast as a motivator, they want to see idealic assumptions about a brand.
I noticed your data set on the repost. I'm showing my poor understanding of social medias prowess now. It would be interesting to see if you used a comparative picture or title vs a idealic picture and title within the repost if the demographic of readers would change. Or an experiment testing the idea of the comparative vs the ideals of the brand.
That stuff fascinates me. How can a picture/turn of phrase mean so much. Maybe i am a little cynical. Just a little.07/01/2017 #71 John Vaughan#70 @Harvey Lloyd's generalizations about the Millenial preference for 'perceived affinity over observable fact' are probably valid. And not very pretty.
Still, I believe that the faceBook-ization of discourse into self-serving 'echo chambers' and breathless 'fake news' is now being reconsidered. The historian in me senses a sea change in our collective skepticism.
Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part, but I hope that the socialNets are now ready to embrace a little integrity ... beyond the cheer-leading.07/01/2017 #70 Harvey Lloyd@David B. Grinberg although data is sometimes important i also believe that BeBee is much larger than data sets. I believe the differences to the individual reader/poster is what should be highlighted. Our generation used data and technical matrices to evaluate things and didn't attach emotion to the matrix.
Our younger generation doesn't really care for our generations methods of displaying comparative data. They prefer to hear why they should chose BeBee and make it relevant to them.
My personal non supported opinion is that BeBees success will lie with these younger generations. I know in my business this was a hard lesson to learn. In start up many boomers held the positions of authority, life was good. After 15 years though many GenX have taken over these slots and am starting to see some the Y show up.
I sense your desire is in the right place but would suggest that all the ambassadors and folks who wish to promote Beebe in America should consider ten years from now and the generations that will be available to the platform.
- Producer05/04/2017A Hive of IdeasIdeas may blow in our minds abruptly. I experienced this while reading a buzz by David B. Grinberg on "Spread the Honey". Honey is viscous and spreading it may be challenging as much as rewarding. If not done properly, the spread may cause...
Comments07/04/2017 #47 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#46 "More importantly the rules help us explore new places of planting"
" In our current phase we are looking for unique meaning in which to expand our thoughts and social interactions".
" We can operate within the skill, but to be genuine we have to believe that the skill is for service of others, not just ourselves".
That is is a core issue of my next buzz dear @Harvey Lloyd. I tag dear @Sara Jacobovici to your great comment. I shall tag you to my next buzz. I appreciate greatly your mind and human heart.07/04/2017 #46 Harvey LloydYou were there, i saw you @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, you were at the brink of the fundamental aspects of our society propelling itself forward. The rules from your previous posts and comments are the foundation of spreading our seeds. More importantly the rules help us explore new places of planting. Your word "rules", i believe you thought there might be three, can be interchanged with perception, goals or success.
What we do should be guided by "why" we are doing it in the first place. The rules of social existence establish the "why". All of this to say that each of us require a meaning that we can hang on to and master. In our current phase we are looking for unique meaning in which to expand our thoughts and social interactions.
Emotional intelligence is one such meaning. I agree that we need the skills of EI, but the skills will never come if we do not understand the broader question of "why" do we need them. IMHO the call for EI is directly linked to the current need for being genuine. We can operate within the skill, but to be genuine we have to believe that the skill is for service of others, not just ourselves.
Please tag me on your post of EI, my schedule is crazy these days and miss some excellent post only to find them weeks later.07/04/2017 #44 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#43 I have just made this comment on a buzz by @Phil Johnson, MBL 🐝, I n the comment I wrote ""As a result we see a much broader gap in the level of emotional intelligence among individuals within organizations. The focus on intellectual labor and experience is no longer enough" This is true and very timely for me @Phil Johnson, MBL. I am drafting a post to publish within 48 hours on Why the Best Make the Worst? I am explaining this paradox with examples from nature and life".
Emotional intelligence surely weighs in, but appreciation of nature is also a MUST. If we don't enjoy nature we shall not enjoy good work. I am saying this dear @Lisa Vanderburg and dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit because I see this i the beauty in your comment "@CityVP 🐝 Manjit your analogy reminds me of fresh morning dew". Souls have their dews and you two have it. Brainy people with no dew in their souls shall not produce their best.07/04/2017 #43 Lisa Vanderburg#39 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit your analogy reminds me of fresh morning dew - that time when all the dust of the previous day is washed away and renewal has boldly claimed hope; very beautiful! The seeds that both you and dear @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee sow are cultivated with the purest of heart; I'm most grateful for you both!07/04/2017 #40 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#37 Absolutley dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams- I am happy that my ideas always fell on fertile soil and your soil is nourishing. I am glad this buzz generated the discussions it did because I learnt a lot. Thanks are due to you and all the great minds here.06/04/2017 #39 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#38 @Lisa Vanderburg the important thing for me is whether my seeds are a fresh spray of existence born to a new day, or are they seeds coated by the toxins that others left within us and thus a repeat of yesterday rather than a renewal of tomorrow.
The more I emit seeds of a new day, the more the quality of what has dispersed comes back as the fruit of learning. The more I emit seeds coated and tarnished with the effects of negative people the more I am not noticing the coating that obstructs our vitality and create fruitless seeds - and thus the seeds of the old day are different from the seeds of a new day.
Memories are sometimes not our best friend when toxic people have harmed us beyond measure, but that is why I like reading what you and @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee bring because you are separating the seed from the toxic memory and what you then send out are seeds that seek to create new memories and new protection; because because through your stories others who have been harmed realize they were not alone and then those seeds then begin to disperse with a healing power and not the toxic coat. They spread as seeds of new awareness.
These are the very seeds that we rightly call "the seeds of hope" and for those lucky enough to enter a new Eden where we are all spread anew, then here the seeds of hope become seeds of love. What you possess is the knowledge and experience of what seeds of hope shall be, for in your stories, you are that hope and I have seen your seeds disperse and I value them greatly.06/04/2017 #38 Lisa VanderburgA sticky wicket indeed @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! I have not seen criticism here yet (but I'm new), but I have seen fury. In honesty, there's always the temptation to covet...must be so in any social-media platform? I've read you her, on LI etc. - I'm way below your intellectual prowess, but your heart; your wisdom...I can get that! Good message, dear man!06/04/2017 #37 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsThe thing I love most about beBee is exactly what happened below in the comments section. So many different plants/ideas/thoughts have emerged from this seed/buzz.
I'm thinking of the story where seeds are sprinkled and some fall on fertile grounds, some fall on concrete land and some other's fall where weeds grow.
The 3 area's here can be compared to the kind of people we deal with in our day to day life. The seeds that fall among weeds get crushed before they get a chance to blossom, whereas the seeds that fall on concrete die of nourishment and the seeds on the fertile land blossom into enriching tree. You are the fertile land here on beBee dear @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. And the seeds of our ideas fall in the land of fertile bees like you. Let's thrive together #beBeesforever #beBeelove06/04/2017 #31 Asesh Datta@Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Excellent concept from the nature. Tree and bees are interdependent in their growth of living. Using these concept we also use to spread our messages through our writings, talks and deeds. Appreciate your thoughts. These social platforms can create a vital role in spreading messages. Sweet or sour, bitter or salty, poison or prasad are for the readers to decide.

Comments22/03/2017 #20 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsI like the Jiz saw puzzle for personal branding. We are all selling something and social media justifies our purpose for the same. Our personal brand builds credibility for our selves and the services we sell . I'm positive that beBee provides greater opportunities and success. For professional and personal branding beBee has laid out the perfect platform. Thank you @Juan Imaz 🤗🐝🤗22/03/2017 #19 CityVP 🐝 ManjitJust because I am in a different space does not mean I can argue against this, this is the reality of the market of mass attention and I accept it as condition of this age, so it is that I make the following proposition.
I will seek to bring a student to beBee who is absolute and total in his dedication and mindset to personal brand.
In doing so, what he represents in belief and investment in personal branding, will also become the bridge for me between this learning space at beBee and my offline learning space at HMC.
I will provide an introductory buzz about him, but I also welcome all of my friends at beBee now to ask some questions and then I will present an interview with him and at that point, he will become a part of this community.
How does that sound? If you are all agreeable message me your questions you want this fervent student of personal branding to answer and I will begin to initiate the introductory buzz and then the interview buzz and then with him in person here as an active beBee member.22/03/2017 #16 Mamen 🐝 DelgadoGreat Producer @Juan Imaz, I like to say we are selling even when we are buying... 😉
It is a way of being on Earth, the way we move, we talk, we act and react... And overact sometimes...
And that is so because we never stop communicating, even on our owns we communicate with ourselves which is the primary relationship.
Thanks for sharing this gift!! 😘22/03/2017 #14 Gert Scholtz@Juan Imaz Thank you for an excellent post Juan. I find it very interesting that leads coming from social media activities are seven time more likely to convert. There are a number of Bees that have mentioned their activity on beBee has resulted in more business opportunities and sales.22/03/2017 #13 AnonymousThank you @Juan Imaz for sharing your consistent educational approach.
You are right, Social Media is not the enemy, but can be one of the greatest tools to People, advancing themselves personally and professionally. beBee engages all users in realizing that their branding / social media usage should be the story they want to share about themselves for the world to see. That lasting impact, beyond all existing virtual walls, enlights our own relevant and singular commintments to make us more approachable to others. Well done ! :)22/03/2017 #4 Tausif MundrawalaBranding oneself is not an easy task to achieve. It needs regular nurturing in order to put oneself forth in front of an entire world. Not only regularly commenting and reading one's buzzes, one should even try to encourage others to present their best to this universe. I am glad to be a part of this wonderful platform who have recognized my efforts of serious personal brand building. I have always loved helping others which is bearing fruit in the form of being a bee on beBee.
An excellent buzz to begin my day, @Juan Imaz22/03/2017 #3 Harvey LloydI am usually the late adopter to most things. Branding was and is no different. This article helped me make the connection between branding, our website, social media and our goals of customer interaction.
The funny thing is i have read enough material about branding to cause brain freeze up, but this article really cleared some things up in making those connections from such diverse resources..
Thanks @Juan Imaz

Why Blogging on beBee = Better Personal Branding
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-blogging-bebee-better-personal-branding-david-b-grinberg Close05/04/2017 #32 Wayne YoshidaAn excellent quote from @Jim Murray -- "... my severe allergy to bullshit prevents me from writing anything that is not, at least in my personal experience, true."
It is a great reason to be driven - this is your "why" statement, as Simon Sinek would say . . . https://www.ted.com/talks/simon_sinek_how_great_leaders_inspire_action04/04/2017 #29 Phil Friedman#25 Yea, well now if I could just stop arguing with that trollmudgeon, @Jim Murray, things would be much calmer. Wait, check that. If that were to happen, "He Said He Said" would stop being so much fun. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/censorship-to-cut-or-not-to-cut-that-is-the-question04/04/2017 #26 Don 🐝 Kerr@Jim Murray "Yeah, I’m a beBee brand ambassador and part of my role is to help promote beBee. But you know what…my severe allergy to bullshit prevents me from writing anything that is not, at least in my personal experience, true." Couldn't have written it better. So, I didn't. Good advice Jim. Sharing.04/04/2017 #24 Phil Friedman#23 I know that, Milos, and agree. But that is sometimes counter-indicated, at lest to me, by certain ways in which you say things.-- almost certainly my misinterpretation, though. However, I think that you and I demonstrate how it is possible to engage in disagreement while remaining friends and devotees of truth and intellectual growth. Cheers!04/04/2017 #19 Phil Friedman#11 @Milos Djukic, my friend, you and I have disagreed about this for a long time and will likely continue to do so.
First, your statement that "Our future "Brave New World", despite some dogmatic principles could be a lot of different place, much better too and full of some glittering prizes for all of us ..." makes me generally uncomfortable. For it strikes me as a typically utopian vision, in which someone is willing to sacrifice individual humanity if the cause of some undefined "greater good".
Beyond that, I do agree with you that "We need self-organizing system in order to be adaptive and sustainable ...". To my mind that self-organization is organic and arises from the constant interplay and adjustments that result from free and open exchange of ideas and opinions -- which includes the tolerance of non-violent, civil disagreement and criticism. When I refer to "aggressive passivity" what I mean is the emerging tendency on social media to insist on the elimination of questioning or dissenting exchange on the basis that all engagement should be sweet and without conflict of any sort. For this is to confuse mutual support and respect with shallow common stroking. Cheers!04/04/2017 #15 Jim Murray#8 @Milos Djukic..You are always going to run into people who will get pissed of at what you have to say, especially of you are trying to speak the truth as you know it. I don't mind these people all that much because criticism is how we learn. The wold is not all peace, love and groovy. The people who learn to roll with that are the ones who, in their own ways are helping to bridge the Great Divide. Thanks for your comments, my friend.

Amongst 30 women in 30 March days, I commented on Dolores Ibárruri's praise of the International Brigades and their Servant Leadership; so, too, shall I in May pick 30 conscience concierges for 30 days giving accolades to Servant Leaders.

Comments02/04/2017 #4 Matt 🐝 SweetwoodI couldn't agree more about beBee building confidence. It's a top reason why building a personal brand is crucial to your success! the beBee "Relevant" is confirmation that what you are saying is meaningful to others - that's absolutely going to build confidence. .
Form my latest hot article on "8 Reasons a Powerful Personal Brand Will Make You Successful"
Here's what I wrote about confidence:
Developing your personal brand requires you to find your authentic voice. The process of creating one develops who you are -- the unique you -- the Me, Inc. When you find your voice, and your audiences start to react positively, that builds self-confidence and self-esteem and allows you to find yourself in a meaningful way.
Comments02/04/2017 #15 Randall Burns#13 Yes, my comment to Ken was something along these lines; (but seeing the caliber here I'm going to have to make a real effort now if I want to keep up with all of you!)

That is if I didn't know about the...
Comments02/04/2017 #5 Tausif MundrawalaThe aforementioned topic on which Sir Ali Anani has penned an article took everyone to another level of intellectualism. People anxiously wait for his buzzes to get posted as soon as he finishes his final touches. I agree with you on all counts that after a hectic day we get a chance to break ourselves from everyday norm of our work and indulge in a truly interactive session with Sir Ali Anani's post.
Thanks for this wonderful buzz, @Louise Smith. I hope sir @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee is listening me.02/04/2017 #4 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeDear @Louise Smith- I am so touched by our buzz and I feel proud to be involved in the writing of this wisdom-packed buzz. Here my main take away from your buzz, and I quote you in all of them:
People get so obsessed with themselves - a legend in their own lunchbox!
So I try to encourage them to start o anchor themselves and to see a new way and believe they can follow it even when their lives seem jumbled like clothes in a washing machine.
I need to keep my strength to continue to help others.
I can't change all this but I can help to make a change for the people I see every day.
We both carry the same message and I find myself immersed in your wisdom.02/04/2017 #3 Louise Smith#2 Thank you Deb. Yes I try not to feel despair usu when I am tired and watch TV news. I came to my peace of acceptance reasonably late in my life. But I am glad I got there. It helps me to help others on their journey. Yes I agree the client has to be ready and that takes a varying a amount of time for each person. Awareness shift is a wonderful thing to see in people.
Thank you for your comment. I am sure you will keep up your Good work too. Louise02/04/2017 #2 Deb🐝 LangeDear @Louise Smith I sense your despair and I sense a peace of acceptance that you are doing what you can. I find it usually takes some event happening that my clients come to me and say "I am ready to do something different. I want to be different. I sense there is something else to life." There has to be an opening. The opening can be anything. I also find if I help my clients sense what it is for themselves that is blocked & sense where there is an opening there is a big shift in awareness, groundedness, sense sight and insight. Keep up your Good work.02/04/2017 #1 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI shall comment again,. However; I immensely enjoyed reading your buzz dear @Louise Smith. I am deeply satisfied that your buzz on my buzz is of such high and touching quality. Will be back. Meanwhile, I shared this buzz on three hives. Excellent buzz to read.

Comments01/04/2017 #3 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#2 Gracias @Jan 🐝 Barbosa Es la verdad ! What wouldhappen if @Javier 🐝 beBee & @Juan Imaz design a recruiters feature that would include Background checks, profiling questionnaires, former employers references check in the 3d generation platform for the business oriented model...(and i know how they can do that..hehe...) LINKEDIN would simply become obsolete. Now history isn't yet written. And there are so many things to be accomplished. with an MAU of 23%, linkedin in isn't living on paid casual subscriptions, they are making money with recruiters, pro brand building (for corporations) and a bit of advertising (shrinking more & more). everything has a lifecycle..and what goes up must go down....unless you know how to fly ( Pew ! hopefully we are bees right?).

Comments02/04/2017 #52 Gerald Hecht#49 @Phil Friedman yeah, I think that umm that can be true many times...that umm..that point you made to the Marshall.
I know that once we had umm...well I'm just gonna come flat out and say it: "Rustlers is what they was...you know ...comin' for my emus and such with uhh......you know they was carrying big ass 10 gauge double barreled shotguns and they weren't fillin'' them things with rocksalt...and I done explained it --tone told the whole tale to umm first the deputy...then to the Marshall himself...and he was like
..."listen son...jes settle down and listen; cause you're reading more into this than is real; blah, blah...strangers jes passin' through...don't mean you no harm...blah, blah...now you think hard son before you badmouth these strangers"...and then he looks me dead bang straight on..straight on in...right through my eyes and says:
"Now you don't want folk around town tellin' each other that the think you might have a screw comin' loose...you don't want that goin' on behaynd your back...when yous trahyin' to got your sleep...folk saying that kahynd of thing, in the tavern ...at nyhat..when you's in yer bed tryin for some rest after a hard day with yous invisible emu farm"
Well...ah bet you can guess the rest...to me; that Marshall and his "deputies"...they'sas guilty as dem rustlers!02/04/2017 #50 John Vaughan#49 I think old Marshall would've agreed that a discussion of the medium can often be the message.
"You know nothing of my work!"

"If life were only like this."

That said, @Robert Bacal's analysis and point are both valid and relevant. And ... he sort of *is* agreeing with you, @Phil Friedman01/04/2017 #46 Phil FriedmanFor the record, I don't see anywhere in this update any representation that it refers to an "article". Rather, it is clearly presented as a stand-alone posting, which follows a decades long precedent on LinkedIn and, for a shorter period, here on beBee. The update does refer to a posting by @Jim Murray on LinkedIn of the meme in question. Which is reproduced using a screen shot image because getting a link to work from LinkedIn was not possible. Just another case of creating a straw man to criticize. Cheers!01/04/2017 #45 John Vaughan#44 Yup, Yup, and Yup, @Robert Bacal.

beBee is an engagement-based community. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/bebee-an-engagement-based-community
Thanks everyone for being so active on beBee!01/04/2017 #40 Phil Friedman#38 I have to disagree, Anne, in some respects. It is a fact the the greater the readership to which a piece is initially exposed, the higher the level of engagement will be -- expressed as an absolute number and not a percentage. When I published pieces that wer picked up by an LI Pulse feature channel and initially exposed to hundreds of thousands potential readers, I racked up views of around 10,000 or more, with likes, comments and shares totaling in the thousands. And at times, I picked up "followers"!by the hundreds in a single fell swoop. Cont Pt II ...01/04/2017 #39 Phil Friedman#38 Anne - Pt II - Right now my "engagement" on LI is running, in absolute numbers, only about 10% behind beBee, for the same article, although the "clicks" accumulating are, on average less than 10 % of those indicated on beBee, sometimes only one or two hundred for a given post on LI.
But we still don't know what that delta means -- because we don't know on what basis a beBee view is registered. It would be easy for beBee management to tell us that and put the question to rest. But to date, it hasn't. And it appears not to want to. My question is why won't it?
Cheers!01/04/2017 #38 Anne Thornley-Brown, MBA 🐝#28 People always bring up this business of how does LinkedIn measure views vs LInkedIn.
There is no measurement that would account for the difference between 26 views on LinkedIn and 2.9K views on beBee. What I always say is, "Okay let's take views off the table and look at engagement."
When there is no or virtually no engagement on LinkedIn and active engagement when the identical content is posted on beBee, clearly it isn't the content that is the problem.01/04/2017 #35 Gerald Hecht#23 @Anne Thornley-Brown I'm not sure...but if it does qualify; can I state that there is at least one qualified candidate that is sort of aware of my existence? I think in...umm... index number #32 I stated that there were 0. If I could update that to 1, I would be much obliged...if not; I understand. I do realize the gravity of the request.

I also posted about this on The Huffington Post. Check it out:

If we don't help ourselves and each other, our blogs will disappear.30/03/2017 #20 Nicole ChardenetConstantly changing algorithms on the major SM sites have been a frustration for all of us unless we're 'big names'. One of the reasons why I joined beBee last year is because it looked up and coming, but small enough that I'd have more reach. So far, so good!!!30/03/2017 #19 Robert CormackI've watched my viewer numbers decline significantly, @Javier 🐝 beBee, except beBee and Quora. Medium is having a hell of a time right now trying to promote their subscription channel. All the writers received a note from Ev saying they should join, paying $5 a month. This gives them exclusive areas on Medium and associated sites. The backlash has been incredible. As I've mentioned before, Javier, when writers have to pay for the privilege of providing content, it hardly seems worthwhile—even when sites like Medium say writers will be paid in the future. They won't, and now the decline in readership (views, etc.) is making it even worse. Good journalists will go first, leaving those who just want "talk." Then the value goes down considerably. I saw this happen with WriterBeat. Good concept originally, but the real writers left. Keeping good journalism is critical to the quality of the site. Fortunately, we still have good journalists here, as Gert demonstrated in his last post. Thanks @Gert Scholtz30/03/2017 #18 Harvey LloydGiven social medias recent birth we don't have a lot of history to gauge the future. Yahoo and AOL being the first to try and develop portals that birthed the social media of today. There would appear to be three phases a portal or social media site must go through, birth, profitability and then relevance. Each of these phases is time sensitive in their development and success.
Birth is the phase of madness where membership-user acquisition is so important. Developing critical mass becomes the focus of all operations. In the past, the tools used for this stage don't really offer much in support of phase two, profitability. This second phase is where the transition can break what was built or propel you to the third phase, relevance.
I believe this is what your post is referring too. The instant gratification model presented by those who are now suffering from loss of users and engagement is the temporal conditions always presented with such a fickle aspect of the human condition.
This is where BeBee has the advantage. They can learn that for the long haul user engagement must give back to the user in a meaningful way. By providing a platform of user growth and development through engagement they can establish the value quickly within the user.
The cautionary tail is when we move from phase one to phase two. I believe LI is/or will be a statistic of relevance as it contracts to the niche it is becoming.

Comments24/03/2017 #53 Tausif MundrawalaI think the content of our buzzes matter more than anything else. Another factor would be the engagement of our fellow bees in the discussion which takes place with every buzz. Our presence here on this platform speaks volumes about us a person and how we respond. I agree with @Harvey Lloyd that people are genuine here. I really enjoy reading different buzzes on different topics to the extent that I have not completed my well thought buzzes.

I tend to use a few different platforms but I'm not an avid watcher of my 'stats'. I do love when people engage in conversation in the comments because to me it only enhances my writing and user experience. I've met many great people in the comments and have participated in some great discussions. And it's always exciting when something in the comments may be the catalyst for someone to write their first post. It's been a rewarding experience for me - both here and on the other platforms I use. Like @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman said "it's the camaraderie that's appealing." I couldn't agree more. Thanks for tagging me by the way!23/03/2017 #43 Harvey LloydI believe we all use social media for different reasons. From marketing to just plain ole writing. The one thing i have noticed with BeBee is that the writers in their own way take an interest in writing so that you can grow. Difficult to explain as it all comes in many forms, but you know it when it is missing.
I have experienced on other platforms the screaming like Madison Square Gardens on New year's Eve., to intellectual speak that is really of no consequence.
Bebee and the folks worldwide seem to be genuine in most cases. As to counts or relevants i sense they don't tell enough of the story.
Thanks for the tag23/03/2017 #40 Gerald HechtI find the numbers "mind blowing" sometimes...though I must admit that I have not a clue what they are trying to say... I'm not trying to be cryptic. I am genuinely in a state of "severe confusion/mild dementia" --(of the "maybe-I-understand-a-fascination-with-Putin-type" https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selank)...
----23/03/2017 #39 Aleta Curry#38 That's wonderful, @Jacqueline Randall
I'm guessing growth is good, but I'm not sure it'll be anything like the way it was in Spain per capita, but I'd love it if we saw that kind of astronomical growth in the USA. Well, I wouldn''t *totally* love it, because items flow by in my stream quite quickly enough now, but it would be thrilling.
Still, I saw in an article somewhere where beBee was predicted to be the next unicorn startup, so either somebody knows something, or somebody's being terribly optimistic.
How about it, @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood? Can we have some stats on how beBee is doing in the USA?

My linkedin profile used to show up as 3rd or so but it's not even on page one now.. my twitter profile is on page one. I did a few others too and Wa~la, there they were! Cool! Thanks @Juan Imaz24/03/2017 #46 Juan Imaz#45 to be honest the main thing has been removing very bad content from past uses of the domain name bebee.com (before we bought it). We didn't realize about it until a couple a months ago. With the content that was indexed to our domain it wasn't possible to rank well...24/03/2017 #41 Ken Boddie#39 I stand by my comment, Juan. My post titled "And from all the lands on earth we come" is a line from a very well known song here in Oz. It came number nine on the list. Bearing in mind, however, the popularity of this song, it is still a remarkable result, and should not detract from the amazing results that your team has managed to achieve, working away in the background. 👍🥂24/03/2017 #38 Ken BoddieThis is impressive, @Juan Imaz. Lots of work going on in the background here.
As a matter of interest, I went back over a few of my Producer 'oldies' to check, and found the following:
(i) if the title is relatively unique, then the Producer buzz comes up at the top of the Google list, almost every time 👍; and
(ii) if the title contains or comprises a well known phrase, then the buzz will be well down the Google list. 👎
It follows that:
(i) for those who want fame (or infamy) then carefully choose a unique title; and
(ii) for those who couldn't give a toss, carry on carrying on, but spare a thought ..... perhaps fame or infamy isn't a bad thing? 🤔24/03/2017 #35 William VanDorinI write to incite contemplation on what we view as reality. It is gratifying to know that this is such a well respected platform for meaningful and relevant content, and I am impressed with the quality and diversity of contributors, ( was so impressed that half of the posts were not simply bulleted lists of what to do to achieve your goals, so very tedious! ).. I was also stunned to realize the executive staff here actually read the creative content posted by members. Excellent platform!24/03/2017 #34 Devesh 🐝 BhattI just searched devesh bhatt.
1st up top 10 Devesh Bhatt profiles on linkedin.
2nd and 3rd see all profiles of Devesh Bhatt in Haldwani(my currenr location, although i am just passing through and it hardly takes 15 minutes)

Si ya me ha enganchado esta versión, la siguiente seguro que me hará producir miel infinita!!! 🐝. Gracias Irene Rodriguez Escolar por la mención. Si algo intento en Bebee, es nutrir a la red con artículos relevantes de diferente temática para que, al igual que a ti, haya algún artículo que parezca interesante y enganche a más abejitas por la red. Es una labor que requiere dedicación por mi parte prácticamente a diario pero sé que estoy consiguiendo mi propósito. Feliz año nuevo Javier 🐝 beBee, Juan Imaz, Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín,Mamen 🐝 Delgado, Fernando 🐝 Santa Isabel Llanos, José Luís Casado, resto de embajadores y sobre todo a todas las abejas de esta maravillosa red. Feliz 2017!!✨31/12/2016 #49 Irene 🐝 Rodriguez EscolarGracias @Javier 🐝 beBee. Estaba apuntada a beBee desde el año pasado, me ayudó a encontrar trabajo, pero no me habia parado a leer el muro, hasta que aburrida en las primeras festividades de diciembre, comencé a navegar por esta red, si hay algo que comparto con algunas abejas es leer, ser curiosa, y ganas de aprender, gracias a eso he encontrado artículos interesantes sobre religión (sin ser religiosa) de la mano de @Aitor 🐝 Díez Fernández.
TRADUCCION DE LOS ARTICULOS, GGGENIAAL, me pierdo muchos por no saber inglés.
Ahora ya sé que eres una o el más a quién agradecer esta maravillosa red que es beBee...

She is passionate about fostering workplaces, families and communities with viality, her family, mosaicing, gardening and cooking.- I will find a photo of me mosaicing and then do i just add the BeBee logo?19/11/2016 #40 Lisa 🐝 GallagherThings that attracted me to beBee from the beginning-
"What sets beBee apart from other professional networking sites is that it builds business relationships, rather than just contacts, by connecting people based on the interests or hobbies they have in common."
beBee acts as a personalized media platform.
You can create your own customized social network. If you like Tecnology and Fashion, you just join those hives and that's it !
And of course the best team ever!! Sharing!18/11/2016 #38 Michele WilliamsQuote:
Our concept: "Engagement through Passions"
Our mission: "Make the professional world more open and connected"
Our slogan: "be Professional. be Personal. be Successful."
(What we do: "We share something. We enjoy. We disagree. We agree. We learn." - @Javier 🐝 beBee, this is one of my favorite quotes)
beBee allows us to grow and learn in connection with each other.15/11/2016 #35 Melissa BitzWow, this is a great clarification, explanation of what really differentiates BeBee and makes it all the more fab! Love the engagement through passion idea and so effective. You are right: without really connecting, REALLY connecting with someone, networking is just a flatline. I love the slogan and although I already think the blogging platform is great, looking forward to seeing what you´ve got in store! Thanks @Javier beBee!
