    Why Every LinkedIn Group Owner Should Consider Carrying Their Group Over To beBee.
    Why Every LinkedIn Group Owner Should Consider Carrying Their Group Over To beBee.Today I read an article on LinkedIn by Samantha Bailey. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/signposts-imminent-diminution-linkedin-groups-wither-die-baileyIn case you don’t know who Sam is, she is one of the world’s top LI analysts, and someone who has...

    @Jim Murray Constructive buzzing at beBee and deconstruction at LinkedIn. Great buzz πŸ€— beBee is the place to be but I'm not gonna put all my eggs in one basket as Javier suggests.
    The professional groups will be a fantastic if established well.

    From the beginning I proposed that the LI professional group model should be applied in the case of beBee. Designing of professional groups with the complete moderation in accordance with the LI professional group model (which is still great, even now) on beBee is the one of a major driving forces for the further and unstoppable success of this platform (and many new members). Thanks @Jim Murray.

    I concur completely, Jim. Both about Sam's qualifications and insights. As you well know, I have, for some time now, been advocating for beBee to provide tools for managing hives that are similar to what LI group owners had when they first started building groups years ago. And I believe with you that, with those tools available, the smart marketing move would be to go after the owners of the large, strong groups. For many of those owners put in thousands of hours building their groups, only to have the legs knocked out from under them. Since LI obviously set out consciously to destroy those groups, it's not at this point in time a matter of poaching. Only a matter of smart marketing. But it would have to be done right. And if @Javier 🐝 beBee, @Juan Imaz, and @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood are smart about it, they will engage the help and counsel of some of us who operated substantial groups on LI and who still have ties to serious group owners there. Man, what a way it would be to build business- and industry-specific hives here on beBee, not to mention boost general membership. Great piece, Jim. Thanks.

    Thanks for another exemplary read, Javier, and thanks for the "shout out" -- which I appreciate. This is a compelling and convincing buzz. I like how you quote the actual users (customers) whose strong testimonials speak volumes about beBee's success in such a short length of time.
    Also, as you likely know, beBee has just as many users 2-years after launch (12 million) as did LinkedIn 2-years after it launched over a decade ago. Thus, the doubters are in a for a big surprise because fast-growing startup beBee is already skyrocketing with buzz!

He is indeed a role model for the rest of us and for all social media CEOs, most of whom never directly engage on a personal level with users of their own platforms.

    About LinkedIn, it's like one of my blog posts on here said, I want to see professional business interaction on LinkedIn. I don't want to see bullying, harassing, or you stole my trademark etc etc (which I just saw and was appalled at the initial rude complaint from a CEO, who was wrong by the way) If you have a trademark issue with someone, keep it private. Being online does not give you permission to be a jerk! And if you act like that at your place of work, then you aren't a true leader o professional. I expect that kind of stuff on Twitter and Facebook, even though I don't like it or support that type of interaction. We all talk about branding yourself, and I think those rude people have branded themselves in a negative way. Hope they weren't looking for clients or jobs. Right now, that's my biggest complaint about LinkedIn. I get so much out of reading articles there and making connections that I will continue at this time to use LinkedIn. I'm still trying to get the right words to describe beBee and what it means to me. Someday soon.

    Yes, I have seen those very posts. Many of them have become hyperbolic in nature. But, as I mentioned in my comment, I see a lot of LinkedIn bashing on here that isn't wholly supported by facts. I like seeing the two networks compete against each other, but over-the-top vitriol is not needed.

    The new layout has issues - no doubt about it. I have expressed some frustrations of my own over both the UI and UX. I have also made it a point to draft an email to express my concerns, and make some recommendations. I've experienced the same throttling of posts/updates on Facebook (both on Pages and my personal account); distribution is an issue on most platforms (though I have nobody I can reach out to for that).

    I actually think LinkedIn has teams working on the issues its users are experiencing. I don't think they want angry users anymore than users want to be angry with the network. I've seen a plethora of postings about how LinkedIn experts are experiencing difficulty because their clients may not have the new version. Additionally, if functionality isn't working as it should, it makes it hard to give any consulting - neither of which is good if your business is in marketing or consulting.#29

    14/02/2017 #29 John White, MBA
    @Mike Rana: to your point, I actually see more LinkedIn bashing on LinkedIn than any where else. Have you been following some of the threads over there? They contain 1000's of negative comments (some factual some not) regarding the new layout. While I try to avoid bashing them, I can understand the user frustration. I spent several years building my following to 36k with a commitment from LinkedIn to distribute my posts to 100% of my network. Then, they changed the rules of the game. Now, I dont know if my posts reach even 15% of my network.

    I totally agree with what Jim said, if you are a beBee brand ambassador, more is expected of you because you are representing a brand. However, I am and always will be against any type of censorship in any way, shape or form. (unless it has to do with small children) That said, I suppose if something bothers you on your own string or post, by all means, delete and unfollow if necessary.

    Where is the link to the "Report" guidelines? I am not an Ambassador, specifically because I don't nor won't filter my content. And an F-bomb is more than appropriate in my writing on several occassions - but if need be, I can open a can of Russian swear words that will make F*ck blush. If you believe that censorship and hiding behind the report button is "engagement" then unfollow me indeed, early - often - and twice on Holidays. Both the Nazis and Communists loved and endorsed censorxhip - you paint yourself in their company by deleting my content. (You with passive aggressive finger on the Report button know who you are)

    #42 Gert, the question I ponder is in appreciating this love or respect, is how does it flow in 7 billion different ways?
    The power of a network increases by its size and so it is I am a student of the human being, of which one systemic flow is the human heart. Flow, Appreciation, Contribution, Equanimity - for me spells FACE. I see this face in all its glory within this buzz.

    I just want to state for the record: I have a few good friends on here who I would feel very comfortable meeting in person as well. That said, I tend to comment after 12 am EST US and I probably miss many posts. I read and relevant many who I don't know at all, I even relevant posts which I don't necessarily understand but I feel others will find great value in. I try my hardest (sincerely) to repost other's material no matter who you are. I think many of us do and possibly due to time differences among Countries others aren't seeing those posts many of us repopulate. Everyone matters to me on beBee :))

    A succinct summary of the joys of beBee, Joyce. Our story telling becomes futile without a platform and an audience, and the fire in our bellies to keep going can only be rekindled by engagement. For me, writing is like throwing a boomerang. Follow a few basic rules and it'll come safely back to enable us to throw it out there again. But break the rules of polite engagement and the boomerang will either fall on stony ground or come back and hit us on the head. I see your throwing skills are well honed, Joyce.

    Phenomenal, @Joyce Bowen!!! "BeBee represents diversity. Members join from all over the world. I can only imagine what’s to come. You seeβ€”beBee is a place for growth."

    I am so glad to have you here and sharing your precious words with us.

    We really are taking part in something special and it is in some way about separating humans from all the judging we participate in when dealing with people in our immediate vicinity. When a community is build on inclusion and celebrating humanity and the joys of being social, then growth factor is built right in, because we all spend our lives searching for the places we belong.

    "After giving up for over a year, these things have breathed new life into me. My mind is greedy for more."
    This is a significant thing to say because the act of breathing in is exactly what the word INSPIRATION means.

    We are normally seeking inspiration from others but that breathing in is what inspiration is. Inspiration is not a hope, it is an action and I do see that in you. My mother has a huge aneurysm in her head, the specialist we took her to recommended we operate immediately, but when we asked him what the prognosis is for recovery after the operation, it was hardly worth considering. Yet that was 12 years ago.

    Engaging life this way also sends a message out to other people who have multiple sclerosis that the affliction does not define their lives, unless they want to be defined by it. That by itself is another form of inspiration - the breath those people with MS take in recognizing that while there is a new day, take one day at a time and make the most of that day - as well as one can and is able.

    It also represents a great testimonial to beBee that you recognize (like I do) that this is a place for personal growth and in your case a place to develop a personal brand. These are individual life choices and not ideologies - what you write here is about a life in action. I applaud that attitude, that resolve and that awareness. We engage the things we control and remain free in and this is where the rubber meets the road.

    The free in freedom is a blessing unless we buy into the curses that accompany life - the challenge is to keep our mind as focused on the blessings, as much as can be or as Doris Day sings que sera sera https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azxoVRTwlNg

The quality of your writings (with heart, soul and sarcasm) are an inspiration for me. I can relate with your "I face my mortality every day now. But shouldn’t we all?".

    i guess, personal contributions with rich values and pertinent appeals are most significant in an affinity based platform, where the platform will become a 'Brand' of distinction. so the potentialities and sincere endeavor with rich constituents are essentially to enrich a brand's value. there only lies the gravity of a person. apart from affinity and associating skill, a brand cannot be popular. so personal brand, i guess is relevant, moment the person is having the capacity to contribute or share his skill to usher majority, and thus the platform on which he or she is sharing makes the platform a unique 'brand'. however, lovely insight @Javier 🐝 beBee! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    Great Article. I anyone reading this article is any type of marketing or business of there own, it is all about mastering the basics. First, your need to Build An Audience, second is List Building, and third is Sales. Yet, it is impossible to sell to create leads in an empty room. That is why we practice the basics over and over until it is natural. beBee is a great tool for creating an target audience. You create the Hive you are looking for. Then promote others doing with a similar theme of yours. You don't want contracting messages all on your page. Help as many people as possible without looking for a reward and your audience will grow.

    As an entrepreneur, you're sunk if you don't make and nourish connections. I have found BeBee to be a much better platform to connect with people. It's very open and personable, while I sometimes find LI too cumbersome and stand-offish.

    thanks for writing such wonderful article.

    i am freelancer, content writer & currently writing few new blogs & articles.

    I tried bebee, just joined few weeks back.

    I shared my blogs @ same time on various platforms.

    This is what was the result.

    1. got few hundred likes on linkedin
    2. Bebee :- got thousand likes & comments from users. pretty good & interactive audience here.
    3. Medium: got very few audience. its good but less interactive as per the users side.

    4. eblogger

    got hundred likes. as per data analytic eblogger is good.

    i am pretty new on all the platforms. but i strongly recommend bebee for writers bcoz its more interactive & very easy to use.

    thanks for ur time.

    have a great day ahead.

    Wonderful Producer @Pat 🐝 Bagano!! Love these two ideas, among others:
    "Tribe Marketing. The bees who follow you and the hives you join are your tribe."
    "The power of beBee to help you establish your brand is amazing, it can pierce through noise, get people to your website not because you strategically placed the links on your content, BUT BECAUSE THEY WANT TO."

    Very well explained!! As an active Bee who loves to interact and share (because I want to), I'm going to share this great piece. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

    Great article - I am on linked in, medium & BeBee - you are right - medium I get reads - no interaction, linked in - a little interaction & shares- BeBee much more interaction & shares - it is a bit of a stretch posting in all 3 platforms & twitter! I do get confused about whether all posts need to be different in all of the different platforms or whether some same posting can occur. I will follow your link on this - thanks so much. Deb

    thanks @Pat 🐝 Bagano for your support ! thanks again for your opinions " beBee seems to pick up where Medium leaves you. It has a built-in audience but your content maybe shared by other users in their hives instead of just being shared externally through Facebook and Twitter. This is what I think is the strongest attribute of beBee – Tribe Marketing. The bees who follow you and the hives you join are your tribe. They are active users and not just readers, compared to medium."

    beBee Is Growing While LinkedIn Is Shrinking. Coincidence?

    @Jim Murray I am a paid member of LinkedIn, and find their newest platform unviable. Many of the features I relied on as a writer are gone. I can no longer tell who my audience is! I get a synopsis of what LI thinks is important. Not worth it. I need facts.

    #31 I believe you're talkung about the LI Influencers, @Mike Rana. Yeah, they are famous for not caring. I never really talk about them whne I discuss LinkedIn bloggers, I'm talking about the people with substantial networks who followers never get bnotified of a new post. These are the people who are suffering.
    Gerald Hecht
    15/02/2017 #34 Gerald Hecht
    #28 I think it's qualitatively different from LI --FWIW Roland; it's like overlapping sets --not only with LI , but other SM platforms as well --it's not this and also not that; but also its both this and that...

    #26 @Jim Murray ...and it's still fluid and evolving; I must admit that sometimes that confounds me...but; thoughtful contemplation/reflection shows that is what "stuff that is evolving/growing" tends to cause; it's a good thing --I believe.

    It (for me anyway) is best to observe while confounded --and engage when "clearish"...

    One thing to also consider with LI: There are a lot of users on there that network for body count and barely care less if their network engages their content. My network is also fairly small in comparison to others and while I don't have a wide readership, the people that care, do engage.#30
    Neil Smith
    15/02/2017 #30 Neil Smith
    #28 You are certainly spot on Roland Waddilove that LI is bigger overall but on a personal level I am finding that this is less relevant than I might have supposed. Posting the same articles on LI and BeBee gets me seriously different readership numbers. Articles posted on LinkedIn get a handful of readers these days despite a large enough personal network, history on the site and a known profile in my little corner of the Outdoor business world. The same posts on beBee.com get much larger readership numbers and some helpful and interesting feedback. My network here is tiny by comparison with LinkedIn but everyone gets a chance to see my stuff. Over on the other site most of my connections don't see a notification when I publish so that makes building up a network a bit of a pointless task. Somehow, for me at least, beBee manages to be bigger in effect.

    #26 Most of all ,we have to be able to differentiate between what works and what doesn't work.I think beBee leadership have a vision and confidence to position themselves in the right direction.The collapse of Linked in is not in favor of the professional social media ,as all followers may be forced to go back to the fundamentals and start re engineering the whole process to keep the strategic equilibrium around a portfolio of stars and cash cows ,not dogs.
    Roland Waddilove
    15/02/2017 #28 Roland Waddilove
    I think beBee is an interesting alternative, but beBee is still very small compared to LinkedIn. Even if LinkedIn shrank by 90% it would still be bigger than beBee. One day it might overtake it - never give up!
    Kevin Pashuk
    15/02/2017 #27 Kevin Pashuk
    Life is full of 'quid pro quo'... If LI no longer delivers (i.e. full distribution of one's posts) then bloggers and writers will move to a platform that will. Simple.

    Another thought provoking post Jim.

    LI is a reflection on leadership. In the world of mergers and acquisitions, many of the multibillion dollar deals were the end game for corporate business plans years before they became public. beBee has introduced a new best practice model for individuals and businesses to follow. Keeping the person and/or business the focal point with personal and business branding. And it's working! Thank you @Javier 🐝 beBee and @Juan Imaz. Great post @Jim Murray

    #37 I must disagree with you here, @John Vaughn. I'm not a part of any clique here; I knew no one when I joined, and yet I have had direct responses from Javier, Juan, Cat, Frederico and many others. (I'm pretty sure that Mark Zuckerberg has never read anything I've written on his site,)

    I'm successful according to MY criteria, but compared to these busy folks, some with many times my net worth, I'm just a housewife from NSW Australia, yet they bother to interact. So I really think you're doing them an injustice.

    #73 Robert Bacal > "I have a simple clarifying question, Phil ... I figure if you don't believe in censorship, that position applies to ALL situations save those that are clearly against criminal law. "

    Phil Friedman > "As to whether deleting anything, comments or otherwise, upon receiving complaints, is censorship, the answer is pretty simple: It is censorship. Whether it is justified is another matter entirely ... The standard for active censorship has to be, it seems to me, very rigorous and high. And I am optimistic that beBee going forward will maintain those very high standards and not censor statements simply because some number of people express their personal dislike of them. " #68

    What about what I said is unclear, Robert Bacal? Where or when did I ever say I don't believe in censorship simpliciter? I believe my statements were clear and nowhere even imply what you want to make of them.

    #71 "I'm not going to repost the comments" sez @John White, MBA

    Nobody's asking you to do so. It's unnecessary. beBee's already replaced the comments that it had censored. All you have to do is point to the objectionable parts and say, "See! That awful stuff is why we had to censor John's comments in the first place. And that's also why we're not obliged to apologize for doing so."

    This is advantageous, because now everyone will understand beBee's boundaries of acceptability and policy regarding its own responsibility.

    I'm delighted that you "haven't received a single report of abuse" since that kerfuffle you initiated. If it pleasures you to believe that it's because I've learned my lesson - Cool. I kinda like to believe that maybe the partisan vigilantes learned a little something, too.

    #72 I'm probably less personally caught up in needing an apology than you imagine, @Phil Friedman

    It has more to do with systemic transparency, responsibility, and trustworthiness.

    I consider those qualities to be vital to a well-operating socialNet. An apology simply embodies good behavior which expresses those values. Systemic function/dysfunction (the topic of the 'open letter' in this post) is the relevant issue.

    Attempting to distract the focus onto accusations about my behavior just kind of misses the mark.

    #70 #67 Dear @John Vaughan, I am not a "good one". I have no problem to publicly state my opinion. My opinion: Yes, you throw insults at people, but nothing other people do is because of me or because of other people here. It is because of them. As I see, there is a very little chance for you to realize that those who have tried to correct some of yours mistaken behaviors in a polite, transparent, civilized and friendly way are certainly not better then those who were stunned and disgusted. That's just my way of communication with people, since I am professor. Some people think I'm a fool. No one should need permission to be kind and cooperative. Only our cooperation is valuable. We are people who care and nothing more or less. We should strive to be ourselves. This does not mean that there are good and bad guys here. Each of us creating their identity, even the virtual one. Kindly, Milos

    Although it's a good start,I still have a feel that the platform is stronger than the video.The brand identification,clarity,opening a with a likable story,the voice over ,although it's not voice -on-camera and was not changing with draw/scene are the strengths of the video.The only weakness is in the music effect which I think doesn't add to the power of the video.

    #27 Perfect quote, @Chas ✌️ Wyatt. It captures some of what I conveyed in comments on @Joel Anderson's series of posts about footprints and lines.

    This is a both/and situation.

    Fresh perspectives, clean slates, starting from scratch, not being attached to things are all occasionally preferred.

    Other scenarios require an established path, a line that we will not cross, the tracks of a life well-lived.

    It is all part of the duality of life. Just like in-person or virtual relationships.

    We now have the technology for it to be a dynamic, joy-promoting Both/And depending on circumstances.

    "It is a pleasant feeling to be the first to walk on sands which the tide has just left. It is like being the first to visit a new land. It produces a freshness of sensation something akin to that of early morning, or of spring. It is like entering upon a new stage of life, having a new world before us from which to receive, and upon which to make impressions." ~Henry James Slack (1818–1896), "The Ministry of the Beautiful", "Conversation II: Footsteps on the Sand," 1850.

    @Deb 🐝 Helfrich Having had the opportunity to have a personal chat with you I know I'm blessed beyond words can describe for having met you.
    The way I describe my relationship with you is as below
    "The energy I collectively feel is unique. It feeds my soul in a new, exciting, and fulfilling ways. It satisfies my heart with a feeling of a content conversation"
    Fulfilment and satisfaction of talking to someone. I haven't had that in a very long time. As real friends tend to drift away seemingly concerned about their social status. People like me who is no longer worried who got the lastest car or designer clothes tend to drift away in search of meaning and true relationships.

    As I mentioned in my Why I love beBee buzz. I found beBee and it replaced the human connection I needed at that time. Is there any better way for me to explain how I feel about being here and knowing you all. Thank you.Stay blessed.

    #13 I truly value your comment, Sara. There is definitely some discussion needed here to understand how it is that we have, in some cases, these really vibrant relationships happening in tiny 2-D comment boxes. We are still in the rather early stages of getting to know each other, but if life where to occur and we became neighbors, I suspect that our concepts of each other would just blossom with all the new sensory information and 'time' to learn about how we participate in daily life.

    I just cannot get around the fact that the Sara I imagine talking/typing to is in my own head. It will be coming up on a year that we've been in an orbit of friendship and the amount of data points we have both directly and via numerous other people is a rather immense set of information. But I am still creating a version of you that exists in my own mind.

    We've been doing this since kids with books. I can vibrantly describe most of the books I have read in terms of a full bodily existence, even though so many of these sensory details are likely my own construct. So I don't really see it as transcending bodies exactly, just setting aside some of the realities.

    For instance, I find it jolting sometimes when one of the Australians mentions how hot it is, when it is winter in Seattle. Other times, most likely when they have mentioned place, the heat is a given.

    What is similar between interacting with imagination when reading books and interacting with reality when conversing on social media is that many parts of the background and environment are filled by my own local senses. While what is different is that you can answer in your own unique and completely different words. It can be a new sense in a very practical way, while also being extraordinarily magical and spiritual.

    Dear @Deb 🐝 Helfrich, I am slowly allowing myself to land from your piece as I attempt to form the words I need to communicate with you. (Deep breath.) First, let me thank you for the mention and for being in any way connected to your writing. I feel privileged to have witnessed the process you described, intellectually and artistically, of your SM self-discovery here on beBee. My "sense" of you is that you are an exceptional human being, with your heart in the right place, and your mind "a right place". And speaking of places....you write: when we "look past their body and 24/7 personality and our own typical human senses and we communicate directly with someone else as pure consciousness that actually lives inside of our own mind." From my perspective, this reflects you are in a different place than me. I am still where you write in the "full, physical, proximal, flawed" sensory, complicated body. If I had to place myself, I would be, not in the new sense you describe but "pivoting" on my older senses. I have never been good at transcending the physical. I am still navigating the integration of the physical, psychological and spiritual. My experiences of SM is still connected to the meanings I have formed from my sensory experiences. I am very "conscious" of being open to expanding my experiences and awareness but that is an expansion of my existing boundaries. I have yet to navigate outside those boundaries. You, Deb, have truly broken through and have reached beyond. All the power to you!

    Pat, Good solid post and advice. I would add only to not make assumptions about people, but wait for them to reveal themselves in their interactions. I know quite a few with advanced degrees who would not waste their energies criticizing the way you write, but who will concentrate on the ideas and opinions you express. Not that they will always agree with you, but they will always read and respond with care. I know they are there because I count quite a few of them among my online friends. Cheers!

Writing is the best writing teacher.

    I enjoyed this, @Pat 🐝 Bagano. Genuine and straightforward. I love beBee's idea of brand building and authenticity. I feel being an ambassador is promoting a positive attitude about something you believe in. The reward is fulfillment.

    #9 Hi Sandra. Yeah, beeswax led me to beBee. Im a DIY chick. You should try beeswax anti aging cream. @Javier 🐝 beBee should start marketing beeswax too! Alright, my rather weird mind mind is on autopilot. Serendipity, yes!

    #7 Hey Paul "Pablo" Croubalian! I remember you were the one who introduced me to the bees! I didnt change my hair, just changed my profile picture to a more recent one. Thank you! So much for your support. I truly appreciate it.

    Pat, nice buzz. I come from a content marketing background too. I find it hilarious - in a good way - that you were actually researching beeswax! Serendipity perhaps? x

    Nice buzz, Pat. I like your points about the benefits of beBee. Remember, it's not always about quantity, but quality. I'm sharing this on several hives. Keep buzzing!

    "My first experience in beBee was being questioned for citations in the articles?" Don't bother answering. We are nearly 12 million people here. There are bound to be some poop-heads.

    Don't sweat it. If they get abusive, report them. There are some that are polite in public but nasty in private. I can't speak for Javier and Juan, but I don't think we need to tolerate that BS.

    Disagreement is fine and a natural extension of discussion. Abuse isn't.

    You can please some of the people some of the time but never all of the people all of the time. Don't even try.

    On another note, your English is fine to me.

    On yet another note. . . Did you change your hair?

    @Pat 🐝 Bagano I enjoy being part of your audience. Keep writing. I look forward to reading others content. One reason is it gives me Ideas to write about. The other is content sharing is a great marketing technique that is a "win win" for both parties.

    The word "learning" is a natural expression.
    The rest I will think about later on today as my 18th Paradox Wisdom. Will let you know when that thinking flows online.

    * Do note that "giving*" means something different for me in a naturally flowing workable life intelligent world, so I will think about as a separate Renaissance buzz - today if possible but otherwise that thinking will flow over the weekend. Close

    #16 Can I make a suggestion? Would you be willing to move the Madrid office photo to the top for tweeting purposes? Check twitter and see the difference in the 2 tweets I just sent. I think the team photo will grab a lot of attention and clicks to this great buzz! Let me know and I will automate 3x day...

    #10 Thanks Deb Kinda what I wanted to nail through the buzz. I didn't want it to be too long too.

    Beeing welcoming and encouraging and demonstrating that we do things differently around here and the New bees need to understand that to comfortably settle down. Sometimes I see a good buzz but they haven't reached out so the content remains out our reach.

    A really complete round-up for Newbees, @🐝 Fatima Williams - which is what the secret honey-sauce of beBee is all about. Beeing welcoming and encouraging and demonstrating that we do things differently around here. We like to chat with everyone, find out about what makes them feel alive and share all sorts of knowledge, and music, and art, and just plain old, glorious smiles.
