The Clubhouse app was once a popular networking tool. But is it still good for networking in today’s world? This blog post will examine whether the Clubhouse app is still a good networking tool.
What Is the Clubhouse App?
The Clubhouse is audio-based social networking software. A new kind of social product based on the voice allows people everywhere to talk, tell stories, develop thoughts, strengthen friendships, and meet interesting new people worldwide.
In essence, you may join and leave a variety of chats on various themes in the style of a live, free-flowing podcast. You can listen or add your comments. It’s supposed to be similar to a party or a clubhouse. In practice, it’s some combination of LinkedIn, a panel discussion, and a professional meeting.
The Clubhouse is a new upbeat networking app that charges users monthly to be members. It’s only available on iPhones and currently only allows people already on the app to join.

The app is simple enough to use, yet it’s so tiny that you may discover fascinating people to follow by looking through your friends or people you admire and see who they follow. Most individuals have completed their biographies to the point where you can determine what they do for a living, their hobbies, and their other social handles.
You may also keep up with discussions by following certain clubs that describe their goal, target audience, and recurring events.
The clubhouse is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Most rooms are open, so you may join whenever you choose. You can’t participate in this experience because you cannot do so, but at least you aren’t forced to stand outside asking for permission like you would if you joined a Facebook group.
It might be a passing distraction, but it’s worth noting that the larger “business development” and “wealth-building” rooms at the clubhouse now feature coaches and growth hackers, independent financial consultants, gurus, and other individuals who claim to be millionaires. Regardless of the reason, they all say they want to spread their hard-won knowledge and money.
Another challenge is that any member can open a room and call it whatever they choose without having verified expertise in the topic. You could walk into an “Experts Talk Stocks” room and discover someone discussing his sneaker collection. It is one of the UX problems that only audio-only real-time platforms face.
The third drawback with clubhouse from a user experience perspective is that if you want to communicate with someone outside of a Clubhouse room, you cannot do so through the app. You must send them an email (if available on their bio) or use another social media platform, Instagram or Twitter, to DM them.
Although clubhouse has its drawbacks, it is still a powerful networking tool. It provides opportunities to connect with people from all over the world and learn new things. A clubhouse is a great option if you want an online community to help you grow your business.
