Why is this happening you might ask. Everyone is desperate to invite this exclusive audio-only social media platform packed with celebrities, talent shows, and excellent thought-provoking conversation. As stereotypical it might sound, it is called Clubhouse.’

What is the Clubhouse?

You might’ve heard of Clubhouse by now. It’s unlikely you’ve joined Clubhouse.

Clubhouse is an audio-based social media app. The company describes itself as

“New type of social product based on the voice that allows people everywhere to talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world.”

In Clubhouse, is does exactly what the app describes itself. Users (sorry, ‘invited-users’ only) can rant and discuss different subjects, in something akin to a live, free-flowing podcast or even relationship stories. Yes, basically everything.

You can listen or choose to throw in your thoughts. Finally, an app that allows you to speak your mind to some strangers worldwide without discrimination or to feel oppressed.

When you join the Clubhouse, you select topics of interest, like tech, books, business or health. The more information you give the Clubhouse about your interests, the more conversation rooms and individuals the Clubhouse app will recommend you follow or join.

The Clubhouse has been around since March 2020, when it was launched by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs Paul Davidson and Rohan Seth. In May 2020, it had just 1,500 users and was worth $100m.

Celebrities that use Clubhouse

The Clubhouse is big with celebrities. Float around the app, and you might hear folks like Oprah, Kevin Hart, Drake, Chris Rock, or Ashton Kutcher.

They might even host chats. In some ways, that’s part of the Clubhouse’s appeal.

You get the chance to hear and even participate in, candid conversations with famous and influential people. Refinery29 described networking as the primary reason for the Clubhouse’s rising popularity.

How are the ratings doing?

And with comments about Clubhouse such as:

‘By far, the most exciting app.’
‘Having the chance to talk to real people’
‘A new place for networking.’

It seems like the app is doing what is expected to do. It provides users with a digital platform to express and talk about anything to ensure that they don't feel too lonesome during this pandemic.

So how do you get invited to the Clubhouse?

Unfortunately, you still cannot join Clubhouse without an invite. If you’re an iPhone user, though, you can download the app and reserve a username, if that sort of thing interests you.

For now, the easiest — and quickest — way to access the platform is to get invited by a friend who already has a Clubhouse account.

There are also exclusive sites to where users are willing to purchase a Clubhouse invite for $30. If you have the money, go for it. I have linked it below:
