What does Apiarity mean?

Apiarity is a neologism based on the word "apiary," which is a bee yard (a place where many beehives are kept). The idea of bees and hives is not new to the realm of social media; experts commonly refer to creating "buzz." The hive is a symbol of community, which is why in social media the hive is a recurring image. Beyond buzz within a community, bees leave the colony to pollinate the world around them. The concept of an apiary expands beyond one beehive community to many communities, much like the online environment today. The bee is also a symbol of hard work. In medieval heraldry the beehive was considered a symbol for industry. Apiarity is all about providing exceptional value through hard work.
