At the clubhouse Hot products. It has grown enough It started in April 2020 since. There were about 600,000 users last December. There it is now More than 10 million worldwide. Despite the large number, it is still in beta, so it is possible to subscribe only through existing members. If you have received an invitation, welcome.
As with any social media service, there will always be different personalities. Some rooms draw inspiration and creativity. There may not be other people who would like to talk to you about business opportunities. In terms of these it’s like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. It depends on when and where.
But for many, the clubhouse is an easy way to connect with others. It’s just a place to listen, or if given the opportunity, to talk directly to other people in real time. It’s instant discussion, conversation without the keyboard. Sound is the only thing – literally.
Los Angeles-based filmmaker Hyunjin Joe manages his own rooms and mediates others with colleagues. He has become a regular user since joining this December with members of several popular Hollywood film and television writing clubs who are leaning towards business as well as catching up and chatting with established veterans.
“It took me a few months before I really started using it, because I didn’t really understand the application. But then I discover rooms that go hand in hand with my professional and personal interests. The algorithm will then pick it up and suggest more house sorting. It’s like any streamer – there will be rooms that you really like and there may not be rooms for you.
He explained that Hollywood is a place where, due to the nature of recreational work, those who enjoy working together will not see each other for long. But thanks to Clubhouse, he was able to communicate with people more easily. “I’ve been able to reconnect with some of the business people I last saw decades ago. The connection seems a lot easier here. It feels more personal, deeper than other social media. Written words have limited compatibility with other platforms but in Clubhouse you can actually hear the reflection of someone’s voice. It can create a more emotionally sensitive connection with others. But don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of BSOs, ”he explained.
Like Twitter, profiles are created by the user, so it’s not easy to test a user’s professional experience or knowledge.
Joe added, “Thousands of ‘coaches’ and self-proclaimed experts are sending bad information about how to sell a television show to improve one’s golf game.”
He noted that the entertainment industry club was designed for writers to share business practices for film and television writing and to prevent misinformation.
“We just hate to see new people being ripped off for entertainment, being charged for the services they need or doing something that wastes their time in the misconception that doing so will start their careers.”
Some clubhouse rooms have “honor contracts” where you click to sign electronically that you comply with the terms of that club. Nothing is limited to (legal) discussions. When it comes to serious issues like mental health, a more cautious approach is allowed. The lines between empathy and competent direction are very well-meaning people who fall into a room full of mental health professionals who can’t be blurred.
