How to Catch More Buzz with beBee Live Video
In case you
haven’t noticed, live streaming is all the rage these days.
But not every social media site offers free live video, which is fast becoming part and parcel of the digital landscape. That's why it just makes good sense to diversify your social media experience by leveraging the Live Buzz mobile app on award-winning startup beBee Affinity Social Network.
- Two-year old beBee currently has over 12 million users in 100 countries and was named a potential "unicorn" startup in Europe by TheNextWeb.
The Live Buzz feature on beBee allows you to stream your best moments, amplify your message and promote your personal brand with 100% organic reach. That means when you stream a beBee Live Buzz your entire network is automatically notified to supersize engagement -- which you won't find on every social platform. Moreover, you can post your Live Buzz in up to three hives (open groups) to reach hundreds of thousands of additional beBee users worldwide.
DYK? Live streaming is already the No. 1 trend on social media, according to
a variety of sources citing recent statistics.

In fact, it's possible that one day soon we will all be using live video to communicate with one another, as the digital technology of today quickly becomes antiquated tomorrow.
Ultimately, live video might replace more traditional forms of communication such as email, texts and voice-only phone calls. If we've learned anything about new technology in the 21st century Information Age it's that disruptive innovation can't be stopped. Further, new technologies are being born at lightening speed.
Today's tech rule for consumers is simple: out with the old and in with the new. The only constant is change. But those who remain tethered to the status quo will find themselves living in yesteryear due to the growth of new high-tech tools in our fluid mobile, digital and virtual world.
Those who fail to leverage the power of fast-growing social media startups, like beBee, will never know how much organic reach and additional engagement they're missing.
Emergence of Online Video
The rise of online video was revolutionized by the commercialization of the basic webcam in 1994.
Then, about a decade later, Skype (2003) and YouTube (2005) were launched with much fanfare. They served as springboards for the proliferation and popularity of online video at the dawn of a new millennium.
Fast forward to present day (more stats):
The advent of online video has recently reinvented itself once again with live streaming via mobile apps. This is evidenced by the increasing demand for, and broad use of, such popular mobile apps like Periscope, plus Facebook Live...and now beBee Live Buzz.
Here's a bold prediction: live video is not only the future of social media but, ultimately, of all digital communication.
This is due to new and emerging technologies which will cause all of our current stand alone tech to become increasingly interconnected via the Internet of Things (IoT) -- which is already integrating many digital devices.
In addition to the IoT, the forthcoming high-tech communications convergence will be revolutionized by rapid advances in:
- Artificial intelligence (AI)
- Automation and machine learning
- Quantum computing
- Nanotechnology, and
- New versions of the cloud
All of the above will have a radical impact on the way we communicate, including via mobile live video. But guess
what? The future is now!
All social media users, especially those who love live video, can catch more buzz on emerging startups like beBee Affinity Social Network. However, it's important to recognize this doesn't mean abandoning social media mainstays like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Rather, expand your reach, amplify your message, and enhance your
personal brand on new and promising platforms. This is not an either/or proposition. Moreover, LinkedIn, for example, is still rolling out native video for uploading 15 years after launching!
What's taking LinkedIn so long to jump on the video bandwagon, much less with live streaming? One would think that paid premium users on LinkedIn would at least have access to such mainstream live video technology in 2017, especially with live video being the leading social media trend.
Don’t put all of your social media eggs into only a few age-old baskets.
In essence, the proliferation of live video raises a basic
Why would anyone fail to leverage a free live streaming mobile app in the 21st century Digital Age?
The short answer: there is no good answer!
That why it makes solid social media sense to enhance your personal brand, expand your engagement and reach new target audiences with live streaming on beBee.
