Suggestions to improve beBee

Suggestions to improve beBee

beBee is a great platform for the exchange of ideas. The fact that many of my friends moved here from other platforms signals the delight we find on beBee platform. To leave other platforms to join exclusively beBee is the thermometer that tells us we feel the warmth and are delighted to be here.
To claim beBee has reached its first fitness peak is unfair. It has more to do. @Javier CΓ‘mara Rica got so involved in a discussion on how to improve beBee was the trigger for me to write this buzz.

BeBee may consider seriously how to build on its strengths while strengthening its weaknesses. One of the strengths of beBee is the establishment by the readers of desired hives. Readers are part of the structure of beBee. The structure is flexible as the readers may add or remove hives as deemed necessary. The real treasure here is that hives become like clusters of similar minds and interests. It is the diffusion effect that shall lead to some great discoveries. When a hive gets overcrowded, the post shall tend to move to led crowded hives and allowing for the mixing of different disciplines. Familiarity breeds familiarity and the opposite is true. I expect beBee to emerge as the Land of Fertility.

There are so many interesting exchanges of comments going on and beBee may consider adding a text mining tool to extract the value of discussions. I strongly feel this tool shall give beBee an edge. For comments that produce so many interesting ideas that once get scrolled down may be not seen by readers who join later. If we could mine the main points of a discussion and highlight them it shall be easier to reference them, join them and to allow for big things to happen.

BeBee could even collect the idea gems from discussion and publish them periodically. You may imagine how many ideas were scattered in different comments and focusing them in one post could be a great contribution that no other platform offers.
BeBee could also select one of the mined ideas as a focal point for further discussions. This is important for the resulting mined discussion is owned by many authors. It is an embedded form of co-authorship. The involvement of many authors of posts and comments in one post may be of enough momentum to spread the name of beBee.

My suggestion here is only one of the possibilities for beBee to build on its strength. It is about turning the flow of ideas into a powerhouse like we turn flowing water into a power source for generating electricity. It is not only going with the flow or against it; it is more of turning information flow into a knowledge whose power will be of sufficient strength to blow the shell of ideas to different locations where new beBee supporters are..

The question is not how to penetrate beBee in new lands; it is more on how to make beBee self-propelling. Changing the question shall bring new perspectives.

Who shall help in filling the suggestion box?

I understand better now Ewan Muirhead. Yes, we need compilation of serious exchange of comments that carry "weight"

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Sorry Ewan Muirhead- i meant in my previous comment "For example, you and I have exchanged few comments.WITH YOU"

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

I agree with one reservation to filter out authors' responses. For example, you and I have exchanged few comments. Without my replies yours would seem "floating". May be filter out all comments that have no substance such as thank you. What do you think Ewan Muirhead?

Brilliant idea Ewan Muirhead - I would just refine more the criteria of selection so that you end up with a manageable number of hosted posts

It is necessary to open a channel for suggestions about further improvements. Feedback service is unreliable and highly futile. The experiences with LI have proved this statement.. I quote you Milos Djukic and I say yes, yes, yes

Great Idea Ali Anani. The quality of two-way communication between users and beBee representatives is at the high level. It is necessary to open a channel for suggestions about further improvements. Feedback service is unreliable and highly futile. The experiences with LI have proved this statement.

Sara Jacobovici commented "The best part is our suggestions and discussions don't fall on deaf ears:. I am sure the idea of brainstorming the metaphor shall materialize.

Franci 🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador

I believe many of us, including yourself, are currently helping to fill the suggestion box. There are numerous useful hives, many of which are specific to using beBee. Throughout the discussions, it is evident bees are willing to help fellow bees. The best part is our suggestions and discussions don't fall on deaf ears. So, it is our job to continue moving forward, without hesitation. There is an abundance of worthy knowledge amongst us. which we should continue to share with one another. We have what is takes to help beBee succeed. It implementing it that puts those ideas in action.

Oh how I wish I could offer a suggestion to see this realized Ali Anani. It needs a "Leonardo da Vinci" type of creative mind to sketch this out. I apologize if my next line reflects a lack of awareness when it comes to social media boundaries but if I were working in beBee, I would organize a "creative brain storming" meeting on how to turn Dr. Ali's metaphor into a functioning reality.

Diane Diane Schultz is monitoring the discussion here and shall give due attention to your suggestions.

Great point Gerald Hecht- in fact I couldn't agree more. However.; the tool I am suggesting comes after discussions and not before or during. So, it is just a helping tool and not an interfering one. Good point

Maja Vujovic and what is possible. Following that I shall make my more detailed comment. The co-authorship one is valuable and I made a similar suggestions. This brings mind to share one idea and beBee shall be unique in this differentiation. Thank you for making a great comment

We are all readers and authors at the same time. I read your buzzes and you read mine. So, in reality I am speaking to all. You know I have never worked for an established company or institute. I have always been part of startups. From my experience I find early adopters are key people in making a startup a success story. beBee is only one year old and this is a challenge for all of us- to make it a success. I know how sweet that shall be when it turns into a great story. I am trying to find a way to make us produce more honey idea seeds that become a great source of planting ideas that attract more bees. Thank you debasish majumder for provoking my mind.

Thank you dear friend Anees Zaidi for amplifying the voice of this buzz with your penetrating comment and by your sharing the buzz. This sharing is not for me; it is for beBee to make it (Land of Fertility), as you wished in your comment
