The Best Social Media Platform For Building Your Business

Before joining Clubhouse, I was unclear on what the application would truly offer beyond being yet another social media platform. After joining Clubhouse I became aware of both how misguided I was about Clubhouse and how much as a new small business owner I needed this forum.

The connections I’ve made have been various but all have been invaluable. I’ve received what can arguably be tens of thousands of dollars worth of free advice about everything from branding to best business practices. The potential business collaborations are unfolding but I believe that they will be mutually beneficial.

I think the big challenge for Clubhouse going forward is to not try to be a platform for all people and all things. I’ve seen some of the rooms take on the postures and topics that are more “traphouse” than Clubhouse. I am not advocating classism but I think that perhaps making “hallways” for certain types of rooms may be interesting (but this may create echo chambers that would be counter Clubhouse).

Very clunky with voiceover as a blind user.

When I was first introduced to this app, I found it to be workable with my screen reader. I was able to find rooms to get into and topics to join. However, since they introduced replays, and clubs, and people I might know on clubhouse, it has been an extremely cumbersome user experience for me. I find it near impossible to scroll through all of the recommendations and constantly get stuck on screens I have no desire to get stuck on, such as the aforementioned. I wish there was a way to filter out past replays, people I might know, clubs I'm not interested in in the slightest, and such overblown things. Furthermore, there is no better way than to scroll and hope one gets past all of the sludge in hopes of finding a room where I might talk. As it stands, I find the entire process far more vexing than helpful and have rarely used the app within the past year or so. Given the auditory nature of the app, it would seem to be well-suited to those of us who have no need for video communication. However, the frustration of the interface far outweighs the usefulness of the platform in general. I wish I could put up a better review, but I would rather be honest about my experience than lie and say the thing was great and that I spend all my waking hours on it. Alas, I cannot and what you have here is a review fraught with annoyance and disappointment. What seemed to be an enlightening experience has turned into a painful one.

UI Trouble

As with any social media desperate for something – whatever that may be – Clubhouse is continually adjusting things that users never asked for; such as: making the friend list a one-dimensional, horizontal scrollable list which only shows a view of ~4-5 users (on my device) at any time, akin to Instagram’s Stories UI. In the case of Instagram, it’s incredibly obnoxious and trashy. It’s worse in the case of Clubhouse, because the list – which requires unnecessary amounts of scrolling – involves friends online or recently active. This is directly counter to how the app functioned since inception (as far as this user is aware of). The “old” design of the online / recently active list allowed for the viewing of many more friends per ‘screen’ – much less scrolling involved to achieve trivial information such as the answer to, “who’s online and may be available to talk?”

An easy suggestion to the developers of Clubhouse is to *not* be inspired by examples from the dumpster, like Meta/Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google... Were the UI folks hired from a company like Meta? Is the excuse that this is “an experiment” ? I don’t know a single friend or person on CH that thinks the new UI change is any good. It’s not a “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” issue; it’s simply just terrible design. This is straightforward.
