What is beBee ? Why is beBee disrupting the current model of social media ?

beBee

Users of the service are referred to as bees and affinity groups are hives. Content providers are producing honey and then sharing the buzz with those who have the same interests. It's a simple concept, it works and is providing fantastic engagement through relevance.
 

What is beBee ? Why is beBee disrupting the current model of social media ?


 

Relevance

beBee is an affinity-based social network. This means that, on it, you only see content and information that is relevant to you and that you have interest in. If, in example, you’re only interested in science and fashion, that is what you’ll see. This is also going to help you connect with people that share your interests. 
 

On beBee we only work to reach relevance and affinity so that you only see what interests you. We want to solve one of the greatest problems with social networks today: noise. We want to avoid the so called ‘infoxication’ . The information you get on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn comes from the connections you have and people you decided to follow. This means that you see their content, no matter what it’s about. On beBee you get what you want by joining hives. Content comes first. We will be adding great features to tailor your feed.
 

Business gets personal

Since the birth of social media, users have tended to keep their business profiles and interactions separate from their personal ones. However, that division is more erroneous than helpful since, as people pour themselves into their careers, the personal and business often spill over into one another, and make for important connections. New social networks like beBee are tapping into this, offering users a way to connect on many levels — by their work activities as well as by their personal interests.

Specialized social networks will grow

Despite fierce competition, social networks will continue to bubble up, but now armed with new social and technology angles.
 

The search for innovative ways to connect users continues at a fierce pace. Affinity networking, the amazing growth of platforms like beBee, is focused on merging business and social networking, allowing users worldwide who share the same professional or personal interests to connect through affinity groups ( Hives on beBee ) . 

This sharing of common personal and professional experiences (i.e. "engineers who are into running") is what beBee calls "affinity marketing," allowing relationships to be developed rather than just adding layers of connections. 
 

 

Business relationships, rather than just contacts

The platform concentrates on matching professionals who have mutual interests and skill sets to help build business relationships, rather than just contacts. BeBee is about professional networking through personal interests and hobbies.

Our interests and passions are generating much more professional engagement and better business opportunities on the platform. 
 

On beBee the user comes first

beBee - as a team - and beBee founders - as beekeepers , will take care of our bees. On beBee , the user comes first. beBee is the only social network being built from improvements suggested by our userbase. Nobody will have any privileges, regardless of the role they have, be it ambassadors or any other one. 

How did the idea of creating beBee come up?

My partner Juan and I were having lunch and realized what one of the greatest problems that social networks have is that they’re not offering users content that they are truly interested in. On Facebook you have your friends and family. On LinkedIn you have sales and professional contacts. So, as crazy as it may sound, there was not a network on which you could find only the content that is relevant to you and where your connections were based on affinity. We made a report and took some of the good features of other networks. Then we thought about the brand, which is great. People are bees that buzz and share honey (stories) in the hives they join and build.

What is beBee?

beBee is the next big thing in professional social networking. Our mission is to create a professional world that is more open and connected. beBee is disrupting professional social networking by establishing connections through passions and common interests that create more professional engagement and deeper and more successful business relationships. 
 


Update: 16 June 2021

The reality is that the relaunch of beBee during the month of May 2021, means for us a refoundation of the beBee project. One of the great architects of this refoundation has been my battle partner @Rafael García Romano  during the crossing of the desert, and the great execution of all the current beBee technical team, who have also needed to reinvent themselves and have pulled the cart when it was necessary to do so.

Sre. Javier, bom dia! Estou no beBee há anos. Fiquei surpreso pelo fato de mudarem o layout e nada avisaram. Perdi com isso, muitos seguidores. Para onde foram? Noto que, a partir da mudança, houve uma queda brusca nas interações, nas aprovações das postagens. Parece-me que está igualo ao Facebbok que, para pulverizar as postagens , precisa-sa pagar para isso. Nele, você têm 100 amigos, por exemplo, mas somente uns 20% recebem as postagens. Vejo que tem muita reclamação sobre esse danado bloqueio. Dias desse mandei-lhe uma mensagem (direta para o senhor) e não me respondeu até o momento. Não se trata de reclamação, mas de um pequeno desabafo. Obrigado. Um grande abraço! Geraldo Passofundo Fernandes, Brasil, e-mail: geraldopassofundo@terra.com.br

The best way to build deeper business relationships is helping others. I know your probably thinking it’s easier to take care of yourself then worry about others. Simply help people, be human, engage one another and be real. We -as humans- are designed to want to communicate with one another need proof just take a look around watch a couple use sign language, laugh, have fun. The integration of your personal and business life can lead to new opportunities. We all can agree that business is about relationships. This is what beBee is all about.

BeBee’s focus is to reach out to people who share the same hobby or passion and might also want to do business together further down the line.

Gerald Hecht - having been through a couple of direct hits over the years here in South Florida, I can only say how surprised I was at how of the best in people it brought out. Confirmed my abiding belief that there are many more good, decent, and caring people in the world, than bad apples. Although I wouldn't necessarily extend that observation to the world of social media, where there is an awful lot of talking the talk, but as far as I can tell, precious little walking the walk. Keep the faith, Gerry, and be safe. Cheers!

By the way, I have just returned to Bali after a rather long trip...a present awaited me all the way from Madrid....many thanks !!

The major media outlets are too busy focusing on Celebs lives and the Presidential race vs. what truly matters- humanity. I read your first link and shared it on beBee and twitter Gerald Hecht. It breaks my heart to read this and think there could be much more help than what you've all been given. I remember the large hospital that had to evacuate during Katrina due to no electricity. They had to leave (made choices) patients behind they didn't *think* would live, they were working until they left under archaic conditions and lets us never forget the Stadium. Thanks for writing your buzz, it needs to be read. Been thinking of you and glad to see you back online and know you are doing OK.

For those who are asking me what is beBee :),...... beBee is about professional networking through personal interests and hobbies. Take golfers, for example. It is the same concept but applied to all professions and personal interests or hobbies. Personal interests generate much more professional engagement and better business opportunities."

Welcome to beBee, Benda. May I suggest that you put a photo up and finish at least a basic profile as soon as you can? Then bees will tend to follow you if you follow them. Many of our bees are shy of responding to an empty profile and no picture. That done, then try more comments and shares. Believe me it'll snowball from there, as long as what you say is from the heart. Come on in, make a splash, the water's great! 🤗

But one of the best things we tend to forget is that here on beBee there is a culture, now developed into an expectation, unique in social media, of politeness and unfailing response. Almost every comment receives a thanks from the author in some way or another. This is undoubtedly as a consequence of the ongoing engagement of both Juan Imaz with a very high proportion of bees. Mi colmena es su colmena.
