Why Clubhouse Is The Next Big Social Media Platform And How To Get Invited
Make some room, TikTok, there’s a new social media phenomenon taking over and it’s called Clubhouse.
Perhaps you’ve heard rumblings of Clubhouse. The new social media platform has permeated the ether. Yes, the “force is strong with this one,” thanks to the exclusivity factor – in order to join you must receive a coveted invitation from a member, including high profile investors, celebrities, activists, thought leaders, and tech titans. So, in essence, an invitation to Clubhouse is currently the ultimate status symbol.
The 411 On Clubhouse
This buzzy new hangout is an interactive audio-based social media app where different “rooms” of members chat about a variety of subjects; everything from investing, politics and entertainment to gaming and beauty. The company describes itself as a “new type of social project based on voice” where “people everywhere can talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people.”
Visitors simply enter one of the “rooms” and silently listen in on the conversation. In order to add your voice to the chat, you must ask one of the moderators to become a speaker by virtually raising your hand, and they decide whether or not to bring you up on “stage.”
Think of Clubhouse as a Ted Talk of live panel discussions, with some lead by and/or attended by world-renown luminaries. Ah yes, there are networking opportunities galore. Given you could be in a “room” with Elon Musk, Ashton Kutcher, Scooter Braun or Oprah, just imagine the possibilities. And that’s the real allure here – Clubhouse users can be listening in on or chitty-chatting live with industry giants and Hollywood royalty.
How To Score An Invitation
As of today, Clubhouse is invitation-only; new users receive just two coveted “golden tickets” to bestow upon others of their choosing. Want more of these prized possessions to shell out? Of course you do! Simply get further involved with the app by joining various rooms, politely raising your virtual hand and letting your wise voice be heard while always using your manners. Yes, Clubhouse cleverly incentivizes users – the deeper you dive in, the more invitations you’ll rack up. Ca-ching!
FOMO got the best of you? Don’t despair – the general public will reportedly get in on the action and earn bragging rights sooner than later. Clubhouse is now working on improving their product and building a robust, loyal community before expanding in order to “make it available to the world as quickly as possible.”
