What is a Clubhouse?
Clubhouse is an audio-chat-based social media application, where users can listen to conversations, interviews, or discussions of several people on certain topics in a room.
The model is similar to a podcast, only it’s done manually live. Clubhouse is also similar to a zoom application, only in the form of sound without video.
Clubhouse has recently become a trend because important figures such as Elon Musk or Mark Zuckenberg also use this application.

How do I join the Clubhouse?
Currently the Cloudhouse application can only be used by Iphone/IOS users. You can go directly to the App Store to download the Clubhouse application.
Even though you can download, that doesn’t mean you can join right away. You must get an invitation or invitation by a Clubhouse user to use this application.
Each user who has joined can send 2 invitations via mobile number.
You can also get your username by entering your e-mail address, only the system is a “waiting list”. So you have to wait.

Clubhouse app appearance and features
The following is the appearance and features of the Clubhouse application:
1. Display dashboard or front page
The front view contains the currently running room. You can also open a new discussion room by selecting “start a room”.
When in the room, there is an option to “raise hand” if you want to ask the speaker, and there is also an icon in the form of plus to ping your friend to enter the room.
So, in the Clubhouse, there are 3 roles, namely:
- Moderator. When you open a new room you will be the moderator. As a moderator, you can adjust the flow of the conversation and make the listener as comfortable as possible in the room. So you can ask questions, or throw the opportunity to speak to other speakers.
- Speaker. Speakers or speakers can give opinions. As much as possible considerate with other speakers, know when to mute and unmute.
- Listeners. Listeners or listeners are people who can only hear the contents of the conversation. If you want to ask a question, you can “raise your hand” and moderators can raise you as a speaker.
2. Explorer view
On the top left side there is a magnifying glass icon which is the explore page. On the explore page you can find users or users that you can follow, as well as conversations or clubs that have been grouped according to the topic.
The name clubhouse means there is also a club. The club is like an association of members with similar interests.
To create a new club, you can apply to the Clubhouse team on the condition that you have to create a room with the same title 3 times.
3. Clubhouse invite feature
The letter icon is an invite feature. As I mentioned before, each user can invite 2 new friends on your cellphone contact.
If you have used both, then you cannot invite again. It’s just that, if you actively create rooms and become a moderator, there is a possibility that you will get additional opportunities to invite other people.
4. Event features
The icon is in the form of a calendar containing events that you can join. You can schedule an event too. There are also options to share, tweet, copy links, and also add to calendar.
5. Activity features
The bell-shaped icon is an activity as well as a notification. For example, if someone follows you, or someone you follow creates a new room, it can be seen in the activity section.
The icon located at the top right is your profile account containing the name, usernametotal followers and followingand bios.
You can also link Twitter and Instagram social media on your profile. You should make a bio that explains your profession or background.
On the top right side of the profile is the section settings, where you can update your interests, or if you need help you can contact the Clubhouse team.
