2020 might have been the year for TikTok, but 2021 seems to be getting an interesting twist. If you are like me, you might enjoy TikTok but can't quite feel you belonged there.
I enjoy TikTok and appreciate the talented individuals who can dance and flip and lip sync
perfectly, but I still feel like I'm a bit older for this platform which is why I joined it. And you should too.
While TikTok is targeted towards Gen Z, with short entertaining clips, Clubhouse is targeting people with a bit longer attention spectrum.
Who is ClubHouse for?
ClubHouse is targeting an older crowd. Most of the time, professionals, entrepreneurs, self-employed, and intelligent human beings, that enjoy lengthy conversations that analyze various views.
If you are a big fan of Podcasts, you will enjoy ClubHouse. Oftentimes, podcasts stimulus our thinking and inspire us to think on mattes from other points of view. However, it sometimes feels one-sided. This is where ClubHouse comes into play because it is like listening to a multiple-guests podcast that challenges each other and provides an even wider range of opinions and points of view.
ClubHouse takes podcasts to the next level.
The ClubHouse Community
The people on ClubHouse are very positive and very helpful. The common sense of helping each other and canceling “status” on the platform encourages the users to wear multiple hats. You might be an expert in one room, and a listener in a different room, and so you have the opportunity to teach and share you knowledge, while also learning from others.
The platform was formed to help each other out, some rooms are dedicated to help people understand how to use ClubHouse. People testify that the sense of mutual help is rare for social platforms, and is what makes ClubHouse unique.
How to Join ClubHouse?
The only way to get access to ClubHouse is by recieving an invitation from an active member. Each current member has five invitations to give away to people. The right to invite other is only given to members after they “proved” their active participant. The person who invited you to the platform will forever be mentioned as your nominee on your profile.
Whoever you are inviting to the platform is important. Because, if someone is breaking the ClubHouse rules (for example, encouraging violence or racism) his account and his nominee’s account being blocked forever.
The type of content ClubHouse encourages will probably continue to attract intelligent people, and will most likely leave kids outside of the platform.
In case you were wondering what will follow TikTok’s success and what platform is going to conquer people’s attention, you can safely bet your cards with ClubHouse as the next big thing.
