- Producer24/02/2017Why Every LinkedIn Group Owner Should Consider Carrying Their Group Over To beBee.Today I read an article on LinkedIn by Samantha Bailey. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/signposts-imminent-diminution-linkedin-groups-wither-die-baileyIn case you don’t know who Sam is, she is one of the world’s top LI analysts, and someone who has...
Comments25/02/2017 #21 Gerald Hecht@Jim Murray This different from the "Marketing To Women thingie"...correct?
I don't think bringing the group that ended up discussing that with me would have a pacifying effect...would be lively however...still, Crystal has a "hair trigger"...that takes some getting used to.25/02/2017 #18 Phil Friedman#15 So as not to allow my reputation to slide, Robert, I disagree with you heartily when it comes to profession- and industry-specific groups. When owners and managers had a full array of moderation tools, when members could be screened, when members could sign up for email notices of new comments in discussions in which they had a strong interest, when... well, I saw very strong results. Many, many great conversations and a lot of professional and industry sharing. Very strong view numbers, as well. That was before the introduction of the long-post publishing platform. I think Milos is spot on in his comment #9. IMHO.25/02/2017 #15 Robert CormackGood post, @Jim Murray. I think we've all been through the LinkedIn cathedral, hearing the bells but not seeing the parishioners. The numbers are much better here (LinkedIn practically dropped off entirely). I still post there on occasion, but I essentially stick to beeBee, Medium and Quora. The rest feel like I'm at the wrong party (Tumblr, particularly). I also see a greater sense of decency here; meaning people aren't here with an axe to grind (like WriterBeat) or a site trying to encourage argument and bad manners (WriterBeat). We don't have to agree on everything (thinking Phil here), but at least we do it in a (hopefully) constructive fashion. If you really want to tussle, Phil is happy to accommodate. Thanks for posting.25/02/2017 #9 AnonymousFrom the beginning I proposed that the LI professional group model should be applied in the case of beBee. Designing of professional groups with the complete moderation in accordance with the LI professional group model (which is still great, even now) on beBee is the one of a major driving forces for the further and unstoppable success of this platform (and many new members). Thanks @Jim Murray.24/02/2017 #4 Phil FriedmanI concur completely, Jim. Both about Sam's qualifications and insights. As you well know, I have, for some time now, been advocating for beBee to provide tools for managing hives that are similar to what LI group owners had when they first started building groups years ago. And I believe with you that, with those tools available, the smart marketing move would be to go after the owners of the large, strong groups. For many of those owners put in thousands of hours building their groups, only to have the legs knocked out from under them. Since LI obviously set out consciously to destroy those groups, it's not at this point in time a matter of poaching. Only a matter of smart marketing. But it would have to be done right. And if @Javier 🐝 beBee, @Juan Imaz, and @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood are smart about it, they will engage the help and counsel of some of us who operated substantial groups on LI and who still have ties to serious group owners there. Man, what a way it would be to build business- and industry-specific hives here on beBee, not to mention boost general membership. Great piece, Jim. Thanks.

Comments24/02/2017 #45 Ali Anani#44 Great observations are there in your comment. I loved the way you dear @John Rylance described the mirrors as possibilities of problems may attack us from all directions and the need to keep the mirrors clean. Yes, time doesn't move linearly if we consider it as a river.24/02/2017 #44 John RylanceTides ebb and flow, there are high and low tides, for this reason it might be a mistake to assume the tide of time is a constant forward movement. The flotsam and jetsam of life can stay with us, it may go never to return, or we may need to ensure we deal with it successfully if it does return. To pick up on your analogy of car mirrors, we need them all, problems or good things can come at us from any angle, so we need to see in all directions, so that we can embrace or reject them accordingly.
Yes we can't go back in time, but we can (with rear mirrors) stop the past catching up with us.24/02/2017 #42 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAYour comment, Ali, "If we only take the value of the present time things may look quite different from the future. When the future arrives it shall leave little room for correction" has value not only in our personal lives but in our businesses. Time after time we've seen companies planning only for profits today; failing to see the 'big picture' of tomorrow when those plans could eventually topple their organization. Abraham Lincoln said "You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today". As always, thank you for a thought provoking share, Ali.24/02/2017 #40 Jeet SarkarThe cars' window metaphor is just outstanding sir @Ali Anani! i loved it! Yes, past (experience) is something which triggers you to do much better than previous. Present help you to built the floor under your feet more strongly which ultimately leads into a good future. Overall, you can say it is a good development! Thank you for sharing this lovely buzz.24/02/2017 #39 🐝 Fatima WilliamsThank you dear @Ali Anani You are a very humble person and I have not seen such simplicity in the current world. To just be able to know an idol like you gives me the joy of being in the Now where I get to learn and know more from you. I am not a fan of movie stars anymore. I am a fan of my favourite bees on beBee.
I am not a master of time
But I am learning not to drown in time
And Now to move in time.
Thank you24/02/2017 #38 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.#37 you made my day @Ali Anani, thank you. It is my pleasure to support a superb bee on its golden honey tour!24/02/2017 #37 Ali Anani#35 A grand ambassador of beBee should have your grandness dear @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.. I thank you for writing such a grand comment24/02/2017 #36 Ali Anani#34 WOW! @🐝 Fatima Williams- you are truly a great person to connect with. Your comments stand out as buzzes on their own. You make me feel I am "moving in time". Can we define synchronicity as two souls moving together in time? If yes, I know why we move together in time. Your movement along the past, present and future times is admirable. Blessed you are.24/02/2017 #35 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.very inspiring and a very good reminder to be more present thank you @Ali Anani24/02/2017 #34 🐝 Fatima WilliamsDrowning in the river of time
As you go down
You feel the need to go back up
You realise the need to keep swimming
You start swimming upward
To stay afloat
To enjoy the present time
To plan for usefulness of the time
Time available in the Now and the future.
You see yourself drowning
You identify what's dragging you
Whats causing the weight
So you shake it off
You plan and swim against it
Finally moving in time

Your use of the word eloquent is very sharp. Yes, to what extent he past residues affect us is worthy of further consideration.

Comments20/10/2016 #1 David B. GrinbergThis is really excellent advice, thank you @Teresa Gezze. Personally, I think more bees need to take advantage of this live video streaming tool which is exclusive to beBee. Moreover, I hope to have shown through my own live buzzes that anyone can do it, even someone with a chubby cheeks face like mine which "only a mother could love" -- and my wife, thank goodness. I'm known for cracking the camera lens due to my non-photogenic looks.
I like to joke that sometimes Reagan National Airport in Washington asks if they could borrow my big forehead to use as an extra runway as needed. Yes, if I could do it, then anyone could do it. Thus, I look forward to seeing more live buzzes from all the beneficial bees who populate this wonderful platform. Lastly, it's always great to see one's network from other parts of the world due to the wonders of technology. For example, I'm always thrilled to watch the live buzzes of my friend in Sydney, Australia (and fellow ambassador) @Lance 🐝 Scoular.
It's just amazing how we can leverage this new high-tech feature to further personalize and connect with folks half way around the world. That's why I strongly encourage all bees to try Live Buzz at least once -- and that goes double for the dozens of ambassadors across the globe.

Comments24/02/2017 #20 Wayne Yoshida@Kevin Pashuk - thanks for commenting on @Don 🐝 Kerr 's post since I missed it before. And yes, I agree silence is a great way to reduce stress and enjoy the solitude. Probably why I like sailing and skiing and bicycling.
Wait. I also like auto racing and loud music and demolition.
Maybe we all need **balance**24/02/2017 #8 Lisa 🐝 GallagherYour wife's quote, excellent! There is so much well intended advice on Social Media it can make one feel as though they have ADD, I've questioned that a lot in myself lately. "Wonder if you're stupid," yep, I can admit that thought crosses my mind more than I'd like to admit. Really nice buzz @Don 🐝 Kerr, thanks for sharing and great lyrics by Twenty One Pilots, fitting end to your piece!24/02/2017 #6 Praveen Raj GullepalliA few minutes of deep breathing or silent thoughtlessness / meditation early morning after a shower really sets the tone for the day! Early to rise is truly wise. It is the key to the rest of the day. Speech is still silver, Silence is still golden ;) (did I hear Gerry say texting is platinum? ;)
