Anybody that produces content or is trying to position themselves as a thought leader on platforms such as LinkedIn or Facebook will tell you about their frustrations with algorithms.
Despite working hard building their network and interacting with their followers, it appears that the big sites rely on algorithms to determine who will and won't see your content.
BeBee is aiming to fill this gap by helping users build business relationships, rather than just contacts. Connecting people based on the interests or hobbies they have in common seems like a big step forward.
Niching down, simplifying and personalizing everything seems to tick all the right boxes. now that BeBee has 10 million users since launching last year and are aiming for 40 million users by 2017 it appears the sky is the limit.
If you have looked at your LinkedIn timeline thinking what is BeBee? This is a must listen episode.
