Clubhouse is a new type of network based on voice. When you open the app you can see “rooms” full of people talking—all open so you can hop in and out, exploring different conversations.
What is Clubhouse?
You enter each room as an audience member, but if you want to talk you just raise your hand, and the speakers can choose to invite you up. Or you can create a room of your own. It’s a place to meet with friends and with new people around the world—to tell stories, ask questions, debate, learn, and have impromptu conversations on thousands of different topics. It is currently available for iPhones only but they are working on an Android app.
I’ve been spending most of my time on Clubhouse (or Joinclubhouse) especially when I’m not doing so much at work. Clubhouse is the new radio and It is here to stay – most CEOs and founders wouldn’t stop talking about it. I recently joined a room where Gumroad’s Sahil was talking about how much he loves Clubhouse and how it’s great for team meetings.
Elon Musk on Clubhouse
Before Sahil, Elon Musk hosted an audio-chat with Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev on Clubhouse. It was an interesting event, to be honest. The event maxed out the app conversation room limits and was live-streamed to YouTube, you can watch it here. It helped propel Clubhouse to the top of the startup charts and sparked a scramble for invitations. As of 1 February 2021, Clubhouse has 2 million users and they have gone ahead to announce forthcoming new features.
Prevent Data Collection: How to Unlink your Clubhouse Account From Instagram
I joined a Clubhouse room one afternoon to learn a few things about Entrepreneurship, then I heard one of the CEOs talking about how Instagram and Facebook monitor your Clubhouse conversations and why you should unlink your Instagram account from your Clubhouse account. Now, while Instagram might not be monitoring your Clubhouse conversations, I would still advise that you unlink your Clubhouse account from Instagram.
How did I link my Clubhouse to Instagram in the first place?
You must have connected your Instagram account to Clubhouse when you recently joined Clubhouse and was linking your Clubhouse account to both Twitter and Instagram, remember? You would notice this when you check your Clubhouse profile.
Anyways, here is how to unlink your Clubhouse account from Instagram (Note: this will not affect your Instagram or Clubhouse account. Nothing will change. I assure you)
First, launch your Instagram app on your Android or iPhone
Go to your Profile, then click on the Menu icon on the top right-hand corner
Click on Settings
Click on Security
Click on Apps and Websites
Click on Active and remove Clubhouse: Drop-in audio chat
