Tell me.... is beBee where the buzz is?
Tell me, what's the temperature like in the hive? Hot, cool, indifferent? I want to stick my toe in the honey but I'm a little lost these days with social media platforms. I'm pretty adept on Facebook, I guess we all are, it's been around a while but in terms of running a business, I feel I'm keeping half of who I am in the shadows. I'm tired of bouncing around FB groups, triple checking anything I post in case it might be construed as some kind of veiled pitch - heaven forbid. (It never is, by the way, I've given more than enough value over the past few months, happily and freely). I posted a political comment on my timeline yesterday (not even suggesting political alignment) and a 'friend' messaged me saying "Fi, stop being so political, you'll screw your business!" What? Really? So you prefer it when I post pictures of my courgette plants? Probably...
Twitter. Probably more my scene with regards to current affairs and topical comment. There seem to be fewer in there who choose ignorance over awareness. Fewer who choose a complete head in the sand job then wake up to an economic crisis and tell us to "stay calm, it's only Mars crossing Venus, go and drink some dandelion tea." I have no issue with that sentiment by the way, each to their own, but it's not the swarm I want to hang out with.
Pinterest. Hmmm, I'm not sold. I can't help thinking it's a huge materialistic pinboard - perhaps I'm wrong and I'm sure it's fabulous but I don't have time to find out. Instagram.... interesting, particularly with it's capacity for video. I'm hearing good things forecast for it's growth and potential.
So tell me, beBee? I've just been pollinated by a friend so I'm buzzing by. It's recommended. I like conversation - good, honest, ballsy chat, where people can challenge and be challenged, exchange opinion as well as pleasantries.
Is this the place to Bee? I'm taking a peek.
