For a while now I’ve been hearing people moan the demise of REBC’s.
For those that don’t know, REBarCamp is an “unconference”. Attendees show up and suggest the topics of discussion for the day. Those topics can be anything from high level SEO strategies to the most basic of basics regarding social media depending on who shows up and suggests the topics.
If you’ve been to a few REBarCamps in the past you’ve seen the same “Twitter 101” or “Facebook Page” sessions over and over again.
Been there done that – right?
That’s where the criticism starts.
REBC is old news, who needs to hear the same beginning social media crap yet again.
There’s a little truth in that. But then again if the content doesn’t fit what you want, you need to ask for what you want. You realize of course that if only the high level thinkers showed up – it would be the beginners that would be complaining.
Which is why I say REBC is still what you make of it. It’s not dead and never will be (until the last two people don’t want to get together and share what’s working).
As a side thought, does that mean that all REBC’s should abandon the beginner stuff and focus on just the high level conversations? I’ll use a screen shot from my Facebook Newsfeed as an answer…
Enough said? Good, I hope to see you at the next REBC!
