BeBee, THE TEAM
The founders, Juan and Javier.
Some weeks ago, I show you our HIVE https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javiercamara/our-daily-hive, but it was empty.
Now I am happy to introduce the team :-)
Marta Pardo was on holidays.
What is beBee ?
beBee is an affinity-based social network
It’s designed for professionals to connect with people with whom they share common interests. Our Affinity Rank allows users to see only content that is relevant to them. Here you can get in touch with people from all around the world, with your same hobbies or career, even if you haven’t met them before.
The concept is about groups called affinity hives that work as a social repository. Unlike every other social media networks, content exists only once on beBee. It means that when multiple users share the same content on beBee, their comments meet in one unique post, called buzz on our social network. This adds value to the original post and allows bees to connect with people that share their interests.
Business gets personal
Since the birth of social media, users have tended to keep their business profiles and interactions separate from their personal ones — a natural separation of church and state that seemed to make sense. However, that division may be 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.
“Oh, you’re a devOps master and are into Minecraft? Sweet!”
New affinity network beBee actually SOLVES the eternal struggle of social media.
Faced with a dilemma of choosing between having a social or professional profile? beBee aims itself at professional users who enjoy a healthy spectrum of hobbies on the side. Its homepage displays feeds from your chosen interest areas (Hives) and suggests new ‘hives’ to follow.
More affinity and relevance.
This is its main differential aspect. As content is shared in the proper hives you won’t get notifications that are not related to your interests. You will join hives that you consider that will offer you added value and content based on your interests. Those are the hives you will be social in, avoiding a wall full of content that you don’t care about.
English speaking bees
There are currently more than one million English speaking Bees on the site, with the US growing rapidly, largely thanks to a word of mouth buzz.
On beBee ,
1. We are bees.
2. The affinity groups are hives.
3. Shared content are buzzes.
4. Writers are producers ( long content is honey).
