Clubhouse – What you need to know
Reading time: 3 minute(s).
Clubhouse is a social networking app based on audio-chat. It currently has about 2 million weekly active users, according to its CEO, Paul Davidson, and is fast becoming one of the most talked about new platforms online.
Straight out of Silicon Valley and being widely reported as ‘the next big thing’ in social media, we’ll tell you why everyone is talking about it.
From joining rooms to creating them...
As well as joining various rooms, you can also create your own. You can opt to make your room Open to all, Social events that only invite people you follow, or Closed events with a specific invite list that you create.
Once you create an event, you are then the moderator, while everyone else who enters the room is a listener.
The moderator has the power to pull listeners from the audience and make them speakers.
Right now, not many people are on Clubhouse but once it moves past beta stage, the company plan to go big. Instagram is driven by images, Twitter hooks us with words and Facebook gives us, well, a combination of everything but Clubhouse is a free social network for audio.
If you want to know more about a certain subject, then listening to an expert on Clubhouse really is great. The interesting thing will now be to see how the app develops as more and more users sign up.
