How Can We Improve beBee?

How Can We Improve beBee?

Lately someone commented on a buzz saying that many beBee users are actually fake, something inevitable with Social Media overall. This got me thinking of ways we could avert that and make beBee better in the process. So, I can up with this simple idea: if a beBee user doesn't get any meaningful interaction in their posts, the latter get less coverage. What exactly is meaningful though is something that needs to be discussed and later on defined accurately, since this is something different for everyone. However, with the right data from the beBee platform, it is possible to come to a meaningful definition of what is meaningful content and as a result, what is a real profile.

Another thing we could do, and which I talked about briefly with Javier, is to have a "mark as spam" option for posts that are clearly not useful to anyone, other than the person / company that posted them.

This, however, is just one example of something that can be improved on beBee. Since I have a day job, I cannot spend too much time about other things that ought to be added / changed on this platform, but hey, I'm not the only bee who cares about beBee, right? So, what potential improvement opportunities have you identified on this platform and what can we do to tackle the issues behind them?

ย Feel free to contribute to this endeavor in the comments below, or by sharing this post in hives that you consider relevant. Thanks!

Zac, I just want my feed to look like on the old beBee. New contents always appeared on the top, but contents that generated high engagement were moved to the top.
 

This post got many comments but still, I have to keep scrolling all way down to find it. 
I can't use notifications as a shortcut because once opened they remain closed.

Good morning, @Javier ๐Ÿ CR

Since I have a full-time day job and family obligations, I don't have much time to spend on beBee. That's why being notified when people I follow published long posts/stories/articles is important to me. I don't agree with Renee that we don't need notifications because their posts are seen in our feed. The feed is constantly updated with new contents, and if I don't visit beBee regularly, I'll miss seeing contents from people I interact with regularly. And I don't want to open their profile constantly to see if they published a new post. :)

Also, we should be able to arrange our feed by the โ€œhide this contentโ€ button/option.

The contents in the feed are now ordered chronologically. We should also be able to sort contents by relevance, which means that contents with most comments and โ€œrelevantsโ€ appear at the top of the feed. 

That's it for now.

Regards

I agree that the editing window could use some work. Also, the one in the profile sectionโ€ฆ

I agree with @Renรฉe  ๐Ÿ Cormier about groups. I would like to be able to select more than one country for my group and be able to edit the name and appearance. Also, I was editing some of my previous posts because the images are huge, plus some of my sign-off info is outdated. The window for editing is very small, which makes it difficult to fix the images and alignment. Is there a way to make the window a larger space?

I have re-read this information from @Zacharias ๐Ÿ Voulgaris 


It would be great if you could please include here the functionalities you would include in beBee, something you think is needed, or any other idea or suggestion you can think of is welcome. I promise to read and evaluate all the ideas.

 

I would also like to know what features you would provide to the administrator of a group, so that more people are encouraged to create a group. I am thinking for example that the owner of the group can address whenever he wants to his members, also by email through beBee.

Thanks @Mark. Sure, I do not expect answers, these are just topics for thinking. I am usually more interested in social media mechanisms, it is my hobby.

@Milos Social media platforms don't seem keen to answer direct questions in direct ways. Great questions. doubt we'll see direct answers.

Ok, once again here, I will be brutally honest, as usual. I have seven questions with no definitive nor provisional answers : 1. What is really crucial for motivating an engineer, different professionals, scholar or academic to write some long-form posts on this platform? 2. What is the significance of a short-form post, which is completely neglected on this platform? 3. What is the significance of an announced improvements, that were never realized on this platform? 4. What is the importance of an strictly professional groups, which does not exist on this platform? 5. What is the importance of a critical thinking, understanding of diversity, and tolerance? 6. What is the importance of users opinions and users satisfaction? 7. What is the importance, benefits and shortcomings of an adopted marketing concept (mostly affiliate marketing) and future professional decentralization concept - blockchain based protocol? Business is strictly personal, always. Best regards, Milos

Perhaps a "hide this kind of posts" feature, using NLP and ML algorithms on the back-end, could help help remedy this. I too would like to have less of this kind of posts on my feed.

There are far too many self-promotional posts these days... My feed is full of spam and it's quite off putting - not so easy to pick the wheat from the chaff!

Too late. Lack of interest has set in from the company, and from users. TLN (Too late now). Hope for the best, prepare for the worst (err...in this case, the end, of a sort).

Thank you for tagging me. I have already shared and commented on this lovely buzz, but I don't find my elaborated comment here. Something is wrong. I lost many comments on my buzzes lately

That's a very good point, Chris. Perhaps if there were a "comment summary" feature in the future, this would help tackle this matter.

I also suggest that the short buzz is reinstated... The spam button would be a good idea Zacharias \ud83d\udc1d Voulgaris , another issue is that some of us aren't getting all of our notifications when someone comments or shares our posts...

We all, regular users, care about beBee and wish this platform develop and thrive. Much has already been said on this subject that caused fierce discussions. Let's wait and see what the next iteration of this platform brings. I think we can't say anything new that has not already been said. I read yesterday an article (in Spanish) announcing a new version of the platform. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@fedealvarezsm/seguimos-trabajando-para-conseguir-un-bebee-para-ti I hope soon.

Bill Stankiewicz, ๐Ÿ Brand Ambassador

I did like the Short Buzz too Javier, I liked reading them.

Zacharias \ud83d\udc1d Voulgaris- nice post. I wish only that beBee engagement would reach their previous records. beBee is the land of continuous advancement and you explain ably why.

Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. beBee Global Brand Ambassador

good question! beBee is wonderful and must be the nr 1, so how will we get there?

Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. beBee Global Brand Ambassador

it is positive to focus on growth and what we want as bees for beBee. Authentic users can be found by letting them verify their true identity. There must be ways to organize this. Online banking uses a card that you can put into a device and then you get access to the online banking platform. To get this card you need to give your verified personal data. beBee could develop cards and devices in a similar way. Or: In this article they talk about verification badges https://www.quintly.com/blog/2013/08/how-to-verify-your-social-media-profiles Who knows, this might be of help. Good article and excellent question!

Franci ๐ŸEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador

1) Bring back the short buzz. It seems this feature was one that many bees liked and they have moved on since it was removed. 2) The "hide buzz" feature is not working 3) Transparency is key! I ditto the comments by Brian McKenzie

My suggestion, Zacharias \ud83d\udc1d Voulgaris, is to focus on implementing the operating principles that were nominally adopted when beBee was first introduced to the English-speaking market. https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/U6_oXE And to #LetTheAudienceDecide Cheers!
