Hey Byte Creator Community,
It seems there is a lot of hostility and misinformation being spread around about Rebyte groups today. Because I started one on this open forum, let me chime in on it. First, let me say I respect all of your opinions, but I want to bring some awareness to you that your opinions may be misguided. This misinformation is being spread and fueled by annoyance and hate. I’m going to pull an Adam Ruins Everything, so here goes.
Group efforts to grow an audience aren’t banned or intolerated in the community guidelines. In fact, most people who are very successful content creators, have groups they may not talk about that they are a part of that support each other’s content to do just that, support creators.
Here is some misinformation that is being spread:
“rebyte groups are abusing the app”
“Vine died because of r4r groups”
“revines killed Vine”
“rebytes are killing Byte”
“rebytes groups are killing this community”
All false. Go educate yourself on why Vine disappeared. It was politics and business.
I’ve linked some articles below.
Just because creator groups are using the Rebyte feature, does not mean these groups are “abusing” Byte.
Abuse looks like:
Setting up Bots, paying for Rebytes, hacking into the Rebyte function at the developer level.
All in all, I made it very clear in my group that we were supporting each other in our efforts to create content, and grow together. I’m following Bernie’s lead here and trying to bring positivity and growth to all, not just an individual, not just an elite few, everyone who wants to be a part of it.
Bottom line, you can reflex your right and opinion not to like, comment on, rebyte, or share something, but ultimately, your opinion or even my opinion doesn’t matter. You can even say that somebody’s content is “bad” or “not funny”, but that doesn’t make it true. I think it’s just good that people are producing content for this platform.
Spread love not hate friends. Now can we stop wasting time talking about this and go back to creating and supporting each other?
