How Does Clubhouse Work?
Clubhouse is an audio-based social media application. Once invited, new users select a handle and set up a profile. This functions very similarly to Twitter.
The next step is to find and follow friends and other individuals. Once you follow other users on Clubhouse, you begin to see various events that are happening on the platform. You're able to join any public event as a listener.
Conversations in each room are managed by moderators. They control the individuals who are called up to the front of the room to participate in the conversation. Most participants leave their microphones on mute until called on by the moderator. To become a participant, listeners can raise their hand using the icon shown above.
There are multiple ways to discover events on the platform. This includes a calendar that showcases upcoming events:
You are also able to search for new rooms and events by topic. Popular topic categories include sports, entertainment, language, technology, wellness and arts.
