Canada has a Buzz going on...

Canada has a Buzz going on...

Javier shared some interesting numbers today in a comment on John Vaughan's recent post on the % of Producer Posts by country.

I took the numbers and correlated them to the population size of the respective countries.


Canada is producing 7% of the Producer posts with just 1,859 bees

Spain has 4,530,189 bees and 30% of the posts

The USA has 148,173 bees and 23% of the posts

We are less than 2% of the population of the US bees & 0.001% of the Spanish bees.

Perhaps we should be shipping poutine, great beer, and maple syrup to the other bees?

We're Number One! We're Number One! Oooh oooh oooh!

Oh yeah...Eh! ;)

Wow, we're producing 7% of the posts? Hey, it's not all *my* fault!

Okay, we're not really Number One here...but we're kicking the US's ass at least. Just like we did in hockey in the 2010 Olympics. Eat our ice and freeze, ya hosers :)

#33 Speaking of which: @Milos Djukic got at least one negative [ - ] vote for having the audacity to support a position that is not exactly popular among the aficionados. Glad to see that it got "recitified", tho the backstory still remains something of a mystery.

beBee's plus/minus Comment Rating thing is a bit flawed and inconsistent, in any case:

A published Article can receive a "plus"/Like vote (a la [ Relevant ], never mind whether it actually is "relevant") - but not a negative vote. And beBee will tell you who-liked-it.

Not so for Comments. You can Like or Dislike, and never take responsibility for your rating. Interesting that this Secrecy Technique is used in the Comments section, where the whole point - supposedly - is to express your opinion and have a vibrant, open exchange. Yet the rating is anonymous. Go figure....

In addition - the Plus [ + ] and Minus [ - ] votes cancel each other out. A Comment on which there is a vigorous difference of opinion (let's say 10 positives and 10 negatives) appears the same as a yawner with no votes.

Anyhow, Milos, glad to see that you made it back to zero. It's how we measure progress.

#38 "All the comments are laced with fun amd humor." sez @Mohammed A. Jawad
Yes. Especially #23... A veritable Canadian Laugh Riot.

Personally, I'll stick with The Red Green Show (, which demonstrates the value of "EveryDay UX", as expressed through the artful employment of duct tape.

For more EveryDay UX:

Hmmmm. All the comments are laced with fun amd humor. ..and I presume that Canucks can pen down more comedies to make beBees bees cheery and popularize beBee to make it more freaking awesome. :)

#33 Thank you @Milos Djukic for "your contribution to beBee marketing is also huge. Once again I will point out that you are a great beBee advocate marketer and passionate supporter. Customer advocacy business model and advocate marketing are unified and tightly coupled in this case."

Just wondering ... why would someone give you a Negative [ - ] vote for those sentiments?
ahhh ... perhaps not enough "Positive"?

#24 Exactly, and not vice versa. Facts are one thing, conclusion are quite another.
