Do you have questions about Clubhouse so you can get started on the app?
Do you have questions about Clubhouse? Here is an overview of Clubhouse, a phone app that is taking social media by storm. To get you started, here are 17 questions answered about Clubhouse.
On Clubhouse, a user can drop into a virtual club to listen or join in on a conversation about a topic of their choice. The conversations are live, and users can also tweet during the conversation using #hashtags to join in on the conversation.
It is a great way to engage with like-minded people that share your interests, hobbies, or as a recruiter for job opportunities, and a whole lot more. There are over 600,000 rooms happening on a daily basis from around the world.
Because there are many rooms available on any given topic, you can drop into one room at a time that best fits your niche and join in on the conversation.
It’s a great way to learn and meet new people! Also, it can be used for entertainment or even education purposes too.
Many rooms are hosted by folks who have outside knowledge on specific topics that they will use to educate whoever is interested or participating. It’s interactive and fun with lots of personalities from different walks of life. Below are some basic questions and answers to learn more.
