What we're about

Social Media Mastermind Orange County (SMMOC) was founded by Bob Watson in May 2009.

SMMOC is a facilitated discussion group providing a safe* environment to share and learn social media, technology, and the Internet. Come ready to listen and participate!

We used to meet on Saturday mornings from 9AM until 11AM. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 all in-person meetups have been canceled.

From our beginnings when we met at Peets coffee in San Clemente we have grown to a solid base of over 900 members worldwide and our meetings are now primarily held online on Zoom.

Our sessions provide a solid base for networking between members.

Our format is simple; no questions is a dumb question, no pitching of products or services, we have one conversation at a time, and we are an "acronym-free zone".

SMMOC Presentations is an off-shoot of SMMOC Labs. We provide talented speakers to organizations on various social media, social networking, technology, and Internet topics.
