Comments22/05/2017 #21 Ken BoddieMy name is Ken and I am a beBeeholic! Nobody attends meetings, however, since we've all been permanently incarcerated with our iWeapons of choice, for murdering the English language. I hope you enjoy your stay in our small island, Ian. A person with your criminal background will undoubtedly fit right in here - but beware the stalking OzBee. Nothing is sacred and even the tamest of actions and activities will be embellished beyond belief and published.22/05/2017 #19 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeThat was so funny @Ian Weinberg!!!! I 5 years in prison! !!! 😉
I too have had a little break from BeBee as I handed my trust to a a retina surgeon for him to fix up my sight! I can happily say the fuzziness is now clearing!
I waa the opposite to your friend when I went to joburg- I hired a car and drive around South Africa on my own! I also did home stays in Soweto and Huhuwhele ( I think the spelling is not right) - I was safe almost everywhere! And had a rich experience.
Have a fabulous time with your daughters. welcome to the land of oz -whilst things have changed a little - it is a pretty safe place to live.21/05/2017 #17 🐝 Fatima G. Williams@Ian Weinberg You had me at diagnosed and I was like WTH and then you had me laughing all the way with beBee murmurs till the murder story and just to let you know that even I've been diagnosed with beBee-itis for the last two years and my only medication is a dose of honey from my favorite bees. Wonderful buzz the beBee feelings are mutual and I've been in love with the platform and adore my people here.
Enjoy your holiday Sending love to all my favourite bees you'll be meeting there.🤗🤗🤗🤗21/05/2017 #12 debasish majumderGreat share @Ian Weinberg! what an alarming post for bees to be cautious of preparing honey! but, as far nature's design a bee is destined to make honey, lest be thrown out of the hive! however, relevant post indeed sir! enjoyed read and shared. thank you for such lovely post.21/05/2017 #10 Gert Scholtz@Ian Weinberg As a layman, I 'm sorry to tell you Doc that beBee-itis is incurable. Once the oxytocin and dopamine has taken hold, there is nothing the medical profession can do about it. Not even left brain, right brain or whole brain surgery can cure those infected. It's a real stinger of malady. Have a great time with your family in Australia!21/05/2017 #6 Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA#5 love the name.Die hard Stones fan here...first saw them Ellis Park 02/95.Most recently in Abu Dhabi 2014...have to pinch yourself to believe that these are 70+ men prancing around the stage.Any neurological explanation for such energy at an advanced age?

Thank you for reading and commenting and clarifying for me.
Especially to those who graciously allow me the privilege of writing posts inspired by them.
I enjoy reading the different styles and cultural influences of your posts.
I am sure we will be writers in arms for a long time to come.
Louise21/05/2017 #64 Louise SmithTo @Gert Scholtz
Such an apt well written personality description of @Javier 🐝 beBee
Great choice of quotes too.
It's well researched that people who have the least - give the most. They don't see it as a responsibility. It comes direct from the heart.
To bee on beBee, I've learnt to get by with less sleep ! But it's worth it!
VVamoosssss .....21/05/2017 #63 Louise SmithTo @Javier 🐝 beBee & @Juan Imaz
Yes, you and your team do lots of hard work communicating with us bees.
When I tell people about beBee and the fact that you both reply and comment on my buzzes and everyone else's - they don't believe me !
(And I'm known to be an HONEST person)
BUT that's what makes beBee such a warm place to bee.
You deserve every success !

Are you waiting for your dreams to come true and change your life?
I am sorry to tell anyone that dreams don’t come true.
Rather, it is your goals that can forever change your life.
You need to set goals in order turn your dreams into reality.
Let's dream BIG 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝19/05/2017 #59 Gert Scholtz#56 @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood Thanks for stopping by Matt - all the best to your work in the USA! @Tausif Mundrawala I am glad that you read the post Tausif and thank you for your very kind words my friend. @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher Your words are very kind and I appreciate that. Javier is a great example of someone who always stays optimistic and positive.19/05/2017 #58 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#54 I agree @Gert Scholtz, that's not just a great quote but true. I have been working on positive thinking. When a person has Anxiety disorder their mind tends to go right to all the 'what if's, or worst case scenarios. It takes a lot of practice and staying vigilant of these thoughts that seemed to come naturally over many years (even though they aren't natural) to replace with positive but it's possible and the more one practices it becomes easier. Rome wasn't built over night as my therapist reminded me and the our thought processes that we may have just accepted as 'who we are,' were also years in the making so it takes time to reprogram the brain. This why I love reading all the positivity, it's a great reinforcement for me, so Thank YOU and thanks to others like Javier who keep it real!!19/05/2017 #57 Tausif MundrawalaI was postponing reading this wonderful post for so many reasons. Today I made it a point to read it somehow and am glad that I did. Gert, my friend who study each one of us to the core where somewhere we are unaware of ourselves as a person. Javier is our king bee and an interactive and approachable one who had never let any one of us down. One needs to pick bits of information in order to create a post on an individual and am sure you might have spent hours doing it. Each bee is unique here and no one can replace them as beBee has placed everyone at their correct places.
I was truly blessed the day when I joined beBee and would again like to offer my profound gratitude to our very own, @Javier 🐝 beBee. And you are absolutely indispensable my friend, @Gert Scholtz19/05/2017 #52 Gert Scholtz@Gerald Hecht A quote that stands out to me is: "Many people assume that contribution to the society is the responsibility of those who are already well settled in life and have nothing else to do. How wrong! It is the little drops of water that make the mighty ocean." Many thanks for your comments Gerald.19/05/2017 #48 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWonderful @Gert Scholtz, you really described @Javier 🐝 beBee beautifully. I love all of what you wrote but this was my favorite: "BeBee gives everybody a voice, regardless of your what is says on your CV or the position you hold. We all have interests and talents, and beBee enables us to demonstrate our expertise."18/05/2017 #47 Gerald Hechtbeautiful...you have captured @Javier 🐝 beBee 's spirit perfectly @Gert Scholtz ! This one especially resonated: " Since the birth of social media, users have tended to keep their business profiles and interactions separate from their personal ones. However, that division is more erroneous than helpful since, as people pour themselves into their careers, the personal and business often spill over into one another, and make for important connections. New social networks like beBee are tapping into this, offering users a way to connect on many levels — by their work activities as well as by their personal interests."

Comments07/05/2017 #53 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorHaha ! At @Javier 🐝 beBee thanks for the awesome support with my mindset ''ambassador with a mission''. I am always wondering how you can be everywhere like an eagle eye, seeing almost everything and beBeeing so positively supportive with not only me, but all of us, with such a simplicity and authenticity. from a startup standpoint i have no doubt of the success, the technological breakthroughs is way beyond expectations and what people think it is. From a social point of view, you give millions the opportunity to beBee ..just happy, by sharing their passions. We are lucky to have your in the digital ecosystem. it is a blessing. Please drive safe, eat healthy, live long ! Por favor ! ; )07/05/2017 #52 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorYour article is simple & efficient as always, going for the fundamentals and referring to great bloggers such as @David B. Grinberg & @Anne Thornley Brown. I shared it to facebook and 1167 potential beBee new users looking for efficient and simple to use publishing platforms.
Royal Honey are for bees who do !07/05/2017 #51 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorTo conclude with detractors: The topic = BeBee - The Collaborative Publishing Platform.
Collaborative implies a team...guess what a team start with 2 people. Now you can be 26 on beBee or more from Facebook (1K+) The size doesn't matter.
Publishing platforms implies a tool: Wordpress & Bloggers are very famous, and beBee is one of the best thanks to affinity algorithm.
As @Javier 🐝 beBee said, the platform here is the ideal tool for your blogging needs. And beBee is constantly evolving.
BeBee is for everyone, everywhere.
If your need is to blog professionally, beBee can be used for that purpose. So the comments are related to the topic.07/05/2017 #50 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorHello bees! As beBee is a fantastic publishing platform for bloggers, creative people, as i said, some bees and i have created a team of professionals, that are blogging or being creative on beBee and other social media platforms to ALSO monetize our passions.
For that will will use cloud based infrastructures belonging to a company. I am the vice-president of the British branch and member of the boards. The purpose is to monetize our skills to fortune 500 using the direct approach pull-push strategy method.
beBee can be one of the publishing platform you will use to monetize your posts. Up to you to use it or not.
For example , encouraging followers & group users on Facebook to discover your posts on beBee (where you have placed or NOT, ads or sponsored contents) brings traffic to beBee. Your sponsored content or ads are displayed when available technically (not on all platform only banner with IDreferral urls).
Maybe new beBee users will be created or invited to try beBee, because the field of interest you promoted, the mix of post content + relevant topic advertisment, caught the attention of a potential new bee. That new potential user will exercise his/her free will to choose whether to sign up with beBee, and -and / or click your sponsored content or advertisement banner(s).
Aside from this team, marketplaces are offered and the sign-up is on a voluntary basis for everyone, everywhere. The platform are long existing and have had many detractors because they are successful.
I have verified that suggested platforms are legit business and have a real purpose and something to sell or buy.
For your information MLM or pyramids deal only with "'methods authors" or "guru writers" that are selling nothing but the share of a sign-up fee.
And that is not the case here.07/05/2017 #49 Phil Friedman#48 That's good, Stephan, although I don't see what that has to do with the topic being discussed. BTW, do they realize they are signing up as part of a multilevel marketing (MLM or Pyramid) program? To quote from the Infolink T&C:
" Description of Referral Program. The Referral Program provides participants the ability to earn commissions as compensation for referring other owners of websites (hereinafter the “Referred Clients”) to register with Infolinks as a publisher via registration at a unique URL to be determined by Infolinks. In order to permit accurate tracking, reporting, and Commission Fee (as defined below) accrual, Infolinks will provide you with a special unique link or some banner tools (collectively the “Referral Link“) which must be used in all links between your Website and this Referral Program. Subject to these Terms and Conditions, when (and if) such Referred Client, referred by you via the Referral Link, generates revenues to Infolinks, you, the participant are eligible for a Commission Fee for such qualifying revenues as described in Section 3 (Commission Fees) below...."
Personally, if I were to sign up with Infolinks, I would do so directly, rather than pay a middleman commission to a referrer on a recurring basis. IMO.27/04/2017 #46 Phil Friedman#42 I agree, Michael, but would caution that, as the number of participants grows, the harder it is to herd the cats. They not only have to leave their egos at the door, but also the their propensity to speak without first reading and seeking to understand. Giving a "moderator" the tools to keep a discussion approximately on point would be essential to achieving success. IMO. Cheers!27/04/2017 #45 Javier 🐝 beBee@debasish majumder you can call it as you want. beBee publishing platform will be casuing trouble and therefore stopping something from continuing as usual ;-) Humans are social animals and bees show a great sense of teamwork and collaboration ! bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz27/04/2017 #44 debasish majumderi don't think it is disruptive, rather most appreciative, collaborative and true affinity based plat form where humility, amity and uniqueness is the key to make it the most distinct platform where without physically knowing each other, we have developed a unique bonding, waiting with alacrity when our endearing will offer us with delectable honey. lovely insight @Javier 🐝 beBee! enjoyed read and share. thank you very much for such lovely post.27/04/2017 #42 Anonymous#40 Phil, what this platform can evolve to is what you and Jim have demonstrated with your collaborations. If you generalize this two person collaboration to an interactive collaborative platform, rather than a sequential comment capture platform, then who knows what would emerge. One of the (implicit) rules has to be "leave your ego at the door". What I have seen in the collaborations between you and Jim has been impressive. The evolution and refinement of an idea by the contributions of two people. Scale that and the value generated could be huge. Toss in a problem. Ideas are thrown in. A practical, implementable solution begins to emerge. Crowd sourcing a solution with every contributor participating with good intent, ego set aside, to deliver the best possible solution.
Javier, that would be pretty awesome.26/04/2017 #40 Phil FriedmanAs one of the co-authors of one of the longest running collaborative content efforts on LinkedIn and later on beBee, I can assure you that both my co-author @Jim Murray and I applaud your decision to provide a tool for collaborative content development.

My favorite, "A forum where bees encourage fellow bees to pen buzzes on a certain topic." I agree, if it had not been for many encouraging me to pen buzzes on certain topics I may have lost faith in myself and the courage to share many stories I never thought I would share publically. There are so many encouraging bee's on beBee which is why so many love the platform! cc: @Javier 🐝 beBee05/05/2017 #17 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc.

I just realized that when sharing a post to the Engineering... hive with a comment it added that comment here as well. Sorry for the double point. Maybe if I do that again I will add brackets [shared in Engineers and Technicians] so that people will realize the comment was my caption.02/05/2017 #8 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee#6 not sure @Antointette Capassso- Backdahl - are we posting via vibration? explore the synchronicity - https://www.bebee.com/producer/@deb-lange/an-invitation-to-explore-synchronicity01/05/2017 #5 Antoinette Capasso-BackdahlOne time while hanging out on a porch in the sunlight, I was able to observe the bumble bees. They are like hover crafts! I think they are able to fly more by vibration than their tiny little wings. Not sure... I haven't studied them. Just amazing to get to observe.01/05/2017 #3 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#2 If it wasn't for the exchange of comments thoughtfully beBee would be like other platforms- a place to chat. Yes, I agree with you @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee. Here we learn from each other respectfully. In fact a good example is the writing of this buzz and how its idea initiated in my mind. With the promised new platform in which bees may collaborate to write jint buzzes and experience higher levels of brainstorming, beBee should be by far differentiated from other platforms. I hope @Javier 🐝 beBee would have "The breaking news" and announce its great advancement (I am no seeing improvement).01/05/2017 #2 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee#1 I do find the comments and responses over here on beBee very gentle, curious and inquiring. Have you ever experienced talking and no-one listens or people pretend they listen and they wait for your pause and then jump in with what they want to say? Here on beBee I sense we are reading and listening with more than our eyes and our thoughts as many responses are very thoughtful and respectful of the producer. Are we pausing more when we read over here and responding to help make meaning, rather than just to be seen? The respect here is like a good contagion that keeps on increasing to create a platform with an enabling culture across the globe.

Comments28/04/2017 #37 Lisa 🐝 GallagherThe poem is excellent! Short yet deep! Great comment by @CityVP 🐝 Manjit and testament to beBee. I agree, I don't write anti-linkedin articled. I also gave up blogging on LI when I left here. Not because I held a grudge towards LI, because I decided to spend my time and energy on beBee. No one forced me to do so, it was by choice. I found beBee to be a breath of fresh air and still do. City, you rock- you're always so positive as is @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. @Gert Scholtz great mix of two buzzes, they compliment one another. I'd like to thank all of you who have stood by me during some difficult times in my life and you still treated me no less than anyone else, with compassion and respect, which I find is the core of beBee.28/04/2017 #33 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#30 There is another movie with the word WALK in it and this one I tried to get my kids to watch. They nearly watched it except after 15 minutes they went to sleep. I actually loved it, and you will know that I am talking about MINDWALK https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uec1CX-6A3828/04/2017 #29 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#25 Dear @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman I fully agree with the special energy that Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and Sara Jacobovici bring to beBee and here energy unfolds into energy, giving rise to new energy. I will be most happy at beBee when I see a billion people here and we merge as brothers and sisters - as energy that begets energy.28/04/2017 #28 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#26 Put it this way @Deb 🐝 Helfrich I am a man who watches tearjerker movies and I have had women tell me to "get a grip". Members of my family cannot believe that I was gripped by a Mandy Moore movie called "A Walk to Remember". Even one of my kids said "Really Dad! Really?" when I watched a re-run of it with a tissue box.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obBUZEKuAgM28/04/2017 #26 Deb 🐝 HelfrichWell, I tried to do a 'roast' and find three unrelated source links that would expand the line of thought in this buzz, but alas, encountering the phrase "moving more towards fainthood" had me wondering when we are going to have an official beBee code word for mic drop when someone just slays a comment?
Four cheers for a man who has repainted the dewey decimal system into a colorful learning catalogue!28/04/2017 #25 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman@CityVP 🐝 Manjit is a great asset to beBee. His comments, as well as those from @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and @Sara Jacobovici, are buzz worthy within themselves.
CityVP, our sainthood bee!
He and Sara and our beloved Ali
Their thoughts so wise and no surprise
Artfully penned from beginning to end
Undoubtedly, a powerful way to teach
Creativity in its truest form
Information extending its reach
Fractals in motion, ideas being born
What better way to be selective
Our special bees are most effective
By bringing learning in perspective

I am glad that i joined as my first foray into social media. LI was my first venture into any social online space. The business dogma of which i think i have heard most of, left me wanting. Finding @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and @Sara Jacobovici along with @Ian Weinberg restored some credibility back to social media for me. Your post here is further evidence.

Comments26/04/2017 #30 david frick#28 You bring up some great points @Anne Thornley-Brown. My experience has been that producing content is neither a hobby nor an approach for immediate impact. I like how other colleagues refer to it as a long-tail approach that integrates well with social selling, digital marketing, SEO, email programs, and enterprise-level CRMs. I still have people reading and commenting on article I published three years ago!
One of the challenges leaders have with with implementing content strategy is that it is a specialized combination of art and science (kinda like advertising was back in the 6o's). We know that it works, but it is still new in execution and has lots of kinks to uncover. Unlike big media approaches of yesteryear, today there are infinite channels, strategies, keywords, and opportunities for results. There are LOTS more variables, but the good news is that we can test and interact with them easily.
Lastly, my direct contracts have been less than $100K and the B2B2B contracts have likely been 2-5x that size. Companies like HubSpot, Buffer, and Hootsuite (and plenty more) are making much larger investments into developing platforms that serve this specific industry. It lets me believe it is very effective at all sizes of business transactions.25/04/2017 #29 Javier 🐝 beBeeB2B marketers are indeed finding success with content marketing: 62% of B2B marketers in North America say their organization's overall approach to content marketing has been much more or somewhat more successful than a year ago, according to B2B Content Marketing: 2017 Benchmarks, Budgets and Trends—North America.

Why would any business want to invest a lot of time in any activity unless it was a charitable endeavour if there is no expectation of R.O.I. Have the contracts been with large companies? What is your focus?25/04/2017 #27 Sabrina Cadini, Live Streaming Wedding EntrepreneurExcellent post! I'm all about content marketing. It reinforces your brand and it creates solid relationships that are useful for: 1) Collaboration (this will amplify your message / visibility / authority); 2) Converting followers into clients / customers25/04/2017 #26 david frick#24 Hi @Anne, I work in a variety of ways in the B2B space and have earned several contracts from the content I post. Content is a way of becoming a trusted advisor with your audience while they figure out that they are ready to make a move. I have also been able use content strategies to help clients do the same with new distributors. I suppose this would be a B2B2B relationship.
The bottom line is that content can be a very effective tool. Too often people rush to attach an ROI on it to 'justify the investment'. I believe this is a bigger mistake than having NO content at all.24/04/2017 #18 Tausif MundrawalaA complete guide to build one's personal brand.

Comments07/05/2017 #57 Ken BoddieAs you know, Gert, I've been on my travels and have hence missed this anniversary epistle to the epistlers.
You might say that:
I'm sorely pissed,
That I missed your list,
And I must insist,
That you persist,
Since your blogs have a twist,
That I can't resist,
So don't desist,
Or you'll be badly missed.

You are a gift to me from the Almighty my dearest friend, @Gert Scholtz31/03/2017 #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.

Comments13/04/2017 #70 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeGreat 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.

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. ☺️

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.

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.

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.

I sometime think comparing beBee to linkedin isn't the most relevant thing to do...because LinkedIn is a Mogul (financial one) that will fight for its market share. If we grow from the field and the roots with everyday people and users adoption...Worldwide Users base will have a choice on their smart device..the Blue Icon...or The Shiny One....04/04/2017 #3 🎭Seth Degyansky♻#1 ¡No pasarán! They shall not pass! I love it @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador. I came across last month reading for Women's History Month and commenting on Dolores Ibárruri Gómez (1895-1989) of Spanish Republic antifa fame. 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. I'll even mention some men in the next challenge.
Merci mon ami🐝03/04/2017 #1 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorThanks for sharing to your followers & beBee in English @Javier 🐝 beBee , i was just motivation the beBee Ambassadors troops (41/140) in the beBee embassy project 's hives, when performers & athletes knows where they stand in the competitive landscape it triggers a hunger for victory, nothing else matters, the pain, the efforts, the thrill and all the adrenaline in our blood stream. I Think, once upon a long time ago, a lot of people stood up in the international brigades and with one voice , shout it out : No pasaran !
Servant Leadership is what i stand for. I can't help that is the way We/i , are. simply.
By the way, i just mention data, facts, metrics....What i love with them, they cannot lie...they go up..they go down...you cannot fake them. they are probably the new mankind's best friend, up to us to not ignore them. Cheers. Buenas tardes Javier !
