Clubhouse is the only audio-only social network. Many liken it to podcasting, but that’s off the mark. It’s more like leaving the radio on in the background; only you can speak up if you want to. And this hands-off, eyes-off, always-running format has gotten other social networks seriously worried.
“If you’re listening to a chat on Clubhouse, you’re most likely not watching Instagram Stories, scrolling TikToks, or listening to a podcast on Spotify,” tech economist and adviser Will Stewart told Lifewire via email.
“Clubhouse has shown the ability to capture significant chunks of one's attention away from other platforms during prime screen time.”
