VIII Reasons To Have Multiple Identities On BeBee

The draconian and evil LinkedIn (dumbassedly labelled the Lumpy Kingdom by some clever boy) decreed from the beginning that a person could have only one account. Creating multiple accounts is punishable by banning.

We all know BeBee is different. They allow, apparently, pen names or the use of multiple identities. It's easy. Log out of your real account, and then signup with a different identity and different email, and away you go.

But why would you want to do so? Here are just some of the reasons.

VIII Reasons To Have Multiple Identities On BeBeeYour cat, Fluffy, and your dog Spot can have their own accounts. Not only does that allow them their voices online, but it increases even more the diversity of contributions on BeBee. We have great internationalization here, so why not cross-species interaction.

You can have completely cooperative, compliant imaginary friends. Ideal for the person with poor social skills, or a downright s*it disturber. You can have conversations with yourself, thereby assuring that you will receive no criticism. If you have your fake identities follow you on mass, you too can be one of the cool kids with lots of friends and followers.

You can MOB those with whom you disagree. A tactic that goes back before public access to the Internet was available, there's even a name for it - creating "sock puppets". It's a simple idea. If you disagree with someone, then let lose your corp of fake identities to jump on the other person, making it seem like nobody agrees with him or her, and everyone hates him or her. Ideal for driving off people from the platform.

For COWARDS, an ideal way to attack people without being held accountable. Have one of your fake identities attack someone. Say what you like. Nobody can hold you accountable, because your remarks come from someone who doesn't really exist.

Be whoever and whatever you want. Want to be a woman? No problem. Create a female persona. Want to sexually harrass someone? Use an alternate identity. Want to be a lawyer? Hey, you can be one. But what's even better is you can be a lawyer, AND a doctor, AND a judge. You can't beat that for creating different followings and enhancing your crudability.

Post to more hives. Hey, Bebee restricts posters to three hives. That's very smart, but imagine if you have five or six alternate identities, and each one can post to yet another hive (or two or three...not sure how that works). Now, it's probably the case that the hives your alternate egos will post to will be completely inappropriate and the buzz will be off topic, but do you really care? I thought not.

Create a community of mistrust. Hey, you work for LinkedIn? Some other competitor of BeBee's? Help turn BeBee into a community where nobody trusts anyone, because...well, anyone could be anyone, or nobody, or imaginary. Dull the sharpest knife in BeBee's marketing - a community based on affinity and trust.

Impersonate someone. Well, you want to BEE a celebrity? Well you can. Not only can you be one, but you can interact with yourself impersonating one. Or, have Beyonce endorse you. Or Trump, or even Hillary. Why not? You are already, a desperate, ego driven, lying sack of politician excrement and a coward to boot. Why the hell not.

You can cheat your way to oblivion much faster than if you don't cheat. Karma is a beach.

PS. Maybe BeBee should not allow multiple accounts without good reason, eh?

@Robert Bacal we will remove any account that is annoying our bees or damaging beBee. Just only for your information. I reserve the right to do it whenever I want. To be honest, i dont like the way you and @Phil Friedman provoke and encourage non desirable actions. So be careful what you guys are doing because we - yes I am talking in the name of most bees - are losing patiente. I recommend you and everyone to focus on enjoying the platform and sharing nice content ;) have a great weekend
