Clubhouse is the brand new, invite-only app that’s taking the social world by storm. Here’s everything you need to know about it…
Everything You Need To Know About Clubhouse
What is Clubhouse?
In short, Clubhouse is a new, exclusive, audio-based, social media app. It lets its users, “talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world”. In the app, there are different chatrooms on different subjects that you can join in on or simply sit back and listen to.
Think of it as a virtual cocktail party with only one rule… Conversations may not be recorded or saved.
Who uses it?
For now, the app is invite-only. Big celebrities like Oprah, Kevin Hart, Jared Leto, and Drake are all in on the action. That means you may get the chance to join personal convos with some of the biggest celebrities and artists of our time.
“Clubhouse is voice-only, and we think voice is a very special medium. With no camera on, you don’t have to worry about eye contact, what you’re wearing, or where you are…”, Clubhouse states on their homepage.
They continue, “Instead of typing something and hitting Send, you’re engaged in a back-and-forth dialogue with others. The intonation, inflection and emotion conveyed through voice allow you to pick up on nuance and form uniquely human connections with others. You can still challenge each other and have tough conversations—but with voice there is often an ability to build more empathy.”
Want to get involved?
Clubhouse is invite-only, and it’s only available for iPhone users. (Sorry, Android fam)
The only way to get in on the action is to be personally invited by someone who is already on the app. In addition, each user is only allowed to invite two people when they sign up. That means if you aren’t one of their besties, you may be out of luck.
However, those who are the most active/influential on Clubhouse get more invites to dish out the more active they are. I know with these terms in mind it may seem impossible to get invited if you aren’t some big time influencer, but I assure you, it’s not. — If you don’t have someone on speed-dial who can hook you up, head over to social media and do some digging to find someone you’re connected to online who may have an extra invite to spare.
