Unlike traditional social media sites Facebook or Twitter which provide an asynchronous platform for communicating and sharing content, Clubhouse leverages synchronous, audio-only connectivity between the audience and the speakers. It’s not quite a podcast, but a more personal way to share information with your audience who can talk back to you in real-time.
You might be wondering “What actually happens in Clubhouse?” And the truth is a little bit of everything. Topics like starting a business from top VCs, relationship discussions hosted by celebrities, and even comedy clubs by up-and-coming comedians all find their way in front of live audiences.
For now, Clubhouse is still in the beta stage and is only available for iOS devices, but still, the app has gained a lot of popularity in the tech space.
