BeBee Better Than LinkedIn. I Proved it!

BeBee Better Than LinkedIn. I Proved it!

Views on beBee vs. LinkedIn

This is the key to social media. It all starts with the precious views. As many writers know, LinkedIn has cut viewership for mostly all but In-fluencers.

I have been in some cases doing a copy / paste of LinkedIn posts to beBee and getting the same number of views (2,000) in 2 weeks that took me 6 months of constant work on LinkedIn.

The only reason I got close to 2,000 views was because of an active LinkedIn group with 120,000 members. As many LinkedIn users have seen, most "personalized" groups are becoming ghost towns, due to all the noise/"infoxication" that beBee Co-founder & CEO Javier beBee mentions in his following post:

Initial LinkedIn numbers: 6,864 Views on 12 posts

= 572 views/post - since Mar 15, 2016 (over 6 months!)...

= 288 likes /12 = 24 likes/post

My best 3 posts (skewed by an active LinkedIn specialized group):
= 5730 views /3 = 1910 views/post
= 261 likes /3 = 87 likes/post

The Average Views and Likes Per Post

9 typical LinkedIn posts (without the above skewed best 3): 1134 views, 27 likes

= 1134/9 = 126 views/post
= 27/9 = 3 likes/post

17 posts on beBee: 13,000 views, 129 "likes"

= 770 views/post
= 7.6 likes/post
all from Sep 7, 2016 - Sep 21, 2016 (2 weeks!!)

That's nearly 10 times the views and 2.5 times the likes in just 2 weeks!

Fed Up with LinkedIn?

UPDATE 10/6/2016:

After 2 more weeks, I had 5 posts get 1+ Relevant. 
The point? Stats can go up after posting - that is, with more time.
Let me know if you'd like more details.

UPDATE 10/18/2016:

Other Considerations...

  • It is worth mentioning that engagement is a lot better on beBee. That is, you get more than a lucky Like on beBee. You get thoughtful, sometimes challenging comments - more than you might see on LinkedIn.
  • Most of my posts were not just about a niche topic. I filtered out any that were specialized for a better comparison.
  • Some people may say that they are not seeing these kind of numbers...
    If they put them in the wrong Hive on beBee, it is equivalent to burying them in a "ghost town group" on LinkedIn with no active members.
    B) Likewise, if you post about something that nobody knows about or understands, they will not open your post. Just like on LinkedIn, social media on beBee is - social!
    The great news is that the same techniques that get visibility on LinkedIn are working just fine on beBee.
  • You can cut down the "infoxication" on beBee in many ways: leaving irrelevant hives (groups), hiding posts and even muting users. On your LinkedIn home page, you are constantly seeing which of your connections just added a connection or a skill! 

UPDATE 10/19/2016

Since posting this on LinkedIn 2 weeks ago, I have received 31 views, 2 likes and 1 comment. Due to the low viewership, I updated my version on beBee that has to date received almost 5,000 views, 45 "likes" and 41 comments. Therefore, I am maintaining and promoting this one instead!

As Javier just pointed out on a LinkedIn comparison post, I have to agree:

"I use both networks. They are basically different. LI is much more focused on recruiting and selling, and beBee is focused on engaging professionals through passions"

I call that passion, #beBeeBUZZ.

#63 Yikes! I can appreciate the need for details and ensuing subject matter expert status that goes with it and you.
Devil is in the details, right?!

#61 Jared, I have thought about this subject myself since reading this post. I have worked with Finance departments in many companies. Most of the time it was budget related but after developing a metrics program for one department I started receiving requests from the Finance area to help them use the application I was building to help them track the financial side of the department (transportation, supply chain). It is a complex system I have to admit. There were so many intricate pieces to the puzzle that had to be considered. As a former Accountant at a military food service operation I can attest to how easily things can go awry if you don't watch the details. It is a difficult business and one I have not wanted to re-enter.

#60. Thanks for the comments, Pam. I never thought of it that way.

#36 @Anders Liu-Lindberg. How would you describe Business Finance succinctly yet interestingly? Perhaps create tge hive, with 2 representative pictures and your best description...

#35 @Anders Liu-Lindberg I have the same issue with the Environmental Industry and it's not just beBee but all social media. When I try to get them to engage they just don't seem to want to blog about environmental issues. I understand that, especially if they are writing for an Environmental company or a Non-profit. Many do not take well to their staff blogging about the job.
