Improvements on Hives

Hives are the core of beBee, so Hives need to be empowered. A lot of professionals (engineers, executives, entrepreneurs, economists, etc) are demanding it from us so we are going to develop this area. Users will be able to create real conversations through Quick Buzz, and share through hives, short texts, links or wherever they like. The conversations will not mix with the long content and all content will be shared in the hives so you will not miss a thing!

Hive Owners will have new features like importing their contacts and managing their hives to exclude or include content.

Hives will be enriched with presentations, whitepapers and much more.

Quick Buzz = Conversations through the hives. 

Produce Honey = long content

Anymore ideas to improve our Hives are welcome !

#50 Fortunately @Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris - beBee has learnt from Google +'s mistake. They made beBee community based right from the start. So yes the niggles regarding notifications (you have to check your buzzes on your profile page as we all know) are a bit of a pain, but it's worth it. Google's approach was less people centred. It's a shame, I kinda wish I had stuck it out more, but I wasn't getting the results. @Javier 🐝 beBee @Juan Imaz @Federico Álvarez San Martín (thank you for 'beeing' awesome!).

When my marketing consultant came up with a plan to promote my stuff on various SM, she included Google+ among them. I used it a bit at first but its effects were not as good. Perhaps it was a doomed SM even back then...

#45 @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven - Re Google + - I left all my content up - loads of lovely full size pics from the past. If I can't pull them down off an archived file, then it's like a birthday card instead.
