Creating Space

‚öíÔłŹ Race is woven into our medical world‚ÄĒthe way we practice and conduct research. Although the term disparities is often interpreted to mean racial or ethnic inequities, many dimensions of disparities exist in the U.S., particularly for African-Americans and Latinxs, the two largest minority groups in the United States.

These disparities have been equally stark in both these groups during the pandemic. Although we share many common civil rights interests, cultural, political, and historical differences have sometimes led to misunderstandings. 

Advancing Equity & Innovation

? This communal space is where we lay aside those differences to facilitate conversations about how COVID-19 has impacted Black and Latinx communities and, moving beyond the pandemic, how discovery and disruption can be used to uplift our communities.

By disrupting, we upend current systems and allow outside entrants to enter and introduce substantive innovations that radically shift existing paradigms.

How to Use Clubhouse

How to Use Clubhouse

  1. Track down and accept an invite.
  2. Pick topics of interest and follow users.
  3. Set up your profile.
  4. Scroll through the homepage.
  5. Use the Explore page to find more users, clubs, and rooms.
  6. Join clubs.
  7. Start a club.
  8. Enter a room.
  9. Request to speak.
  10. Add friends to a room.
  11. Leave a room.
  12. See upcoming rooms.
  13. Invite friends.

1. Track down and accept an invite.

At this point, Clubhouse is still invite-only and only available for iPhone users. Luckily, because of its growing audience, you might have a friend or colleague who’s already on it and willing to give you one of their invitations.

If you aren’t sure if you know anyone on Clubhouse, you can still register for an account on the app. Once you set up a basic profile, give your contact information, and select a few topics you’re interested in (as noted in Step 2), you’ll see a screen that says you’ve joined the waitlist.

From there, contacts who are on Clubhouse will be notified that you’ve joined the waitlist and they can give you an invite to move you up to full user status. Here’s a text I received from Clubhouse when my HubSpot colleague, Amanda, bumped me up to the top of the waitlist.

invitation from friend to Clubhouse app

If and when you receive an invite from someone, be sure to register with the phone number they texted your invitation to — otherwise, the app might not register that you’re the same contact.

When you register, you’ll be prompted to add an email address. You’ll also choose a photo, username, and password. Alternatively, you can connect your Twitter to have the same username, photo, and profile information flow into the app.

2. Pick topics of interest and follow users.

After giving some basic information during registration, you can also choose topics you’re most interested in from a long list to help customize the content the app will suggest to you.

Choosing topics of interest on Clubhouse

Then, Clubhouse will ask you to access your contacts and use your topic preferences to suggest both people you might know and influencers you might be interested in following.

If you don’t want to select any topics or follow any people just yet, that’s okay. You can do all of these things later.

3. Set up your profile.

If you didn’t link your Clubhouse account to Twitter to auto-generate a profile, you can set up your profile by adding or changing your photo and writing a description that notes your hobbies, interests, companies you work for, or industry.

While we aren’t quite sure if your profile description will optimize your page for the app’s search feature, it will be helpful for prospective followers to see when they decide whether or not to follow you.

Lastly, you can complete your profile by linking Twitter and Instagram. Once you do this, Twitter and Instagram icons linked to your profiles on those channels will appear under your description.

Here’s a great profile example from Cassy Isabella, a prominent influencer, entrepreneur, and travel expert on the platform:

Profile page on Clubhouse

4. Scroll through the homepage.

Once you’re all set up, start exploring. The first place to check out is Clubhouse‚Äôs homepage. While there isn’t an icon for it, you can access it by clicking the back button in the upper left corner of any other page on the app.

Clubhouse homepage

5. Use the Explore page to find other users, clubs, and rooms.

Not interested in what your homepage is showing you? Tap the magnifying glass icon to see Clubhouse’s Explore page.

From there, you can get suggestions of people to follow and click on certain topics to see ongoing rooms, people, or clubs related to them.

Explore Page of Clubhouse

You can also use this tab’s search feature to look for specific users or clubs, which we’ll discuss in the next step.

6. Join Clubs.

Clubs are groups of users interested in the same specific topics, similar to the Facebook or LinkedIn Groups feature. Once you join a club, you can see notifications of Rooms hosted by it. You can also use clubs to find or connect with Clubhouse users that have similar interests.

To find clubs, you can either sift through the Explore tab or tap its search bar, select clubs and search a topic, as I did with “Growth Marketing” below:

Club search page on clubhouse

You can join a club by going to its profile page and tapping “Follow.” After doing this, you’ll be notified whenever its admins launch a room.

Following a Club on Clubhouse

No longer interested in a club you joined? To leave it, just go to the club page and tap the “Following” button. This will unfollow you and the button will switch back to just saying “Follow.”

7. Start a Club.

Once you’ve hosted three discussions, or rooms, on Clubhouse, you can start applying for clubs. To do this, you’ll go to your profile and tap the gear in the top right corner to get to your settings.

From the settings page, you’ll click to Clubhouse’s FAQ page, or this¬†Clubhouse Knowledge Center link, where you’ll find club rules and application instructions, as well as a Club application link.

Once Clubhouse approves the Club, you’ll see an app notification and get the ability to edit the club profile and launch rooms on behalf of the Club.

One important thing to note is that the Clubhouse team manually approves club applications. Because of the popularity of Clubs,¬†the company is only allowing one club per user right now. This means you should be sure about the club you apply for as it might be the only one you’ll manage in the future.

8. Drop into a room.

When you see a room, or audio chatroom, you want to join (or “drop-in” on), all you have to do is tap it to start listening. Upon entering a room, you’ll be automatically muted as a listener. You’ll also see the room speakers and moderators at the top of the screen.

The unlabeled area of the room screen that highlights the speakers is referred to as “the stage” by moderators.

A room on Clubhouse

Below the “stage,” you’ll see attendees the speakers follow under the “Followed by speakers” heading, and a list of general attendees under “Others in the room.‚ÄĚ All attendees who are not on the stage are muted and cannot speak unless they’re brought to the stage.

If you see a party popper emoji (or¬†?) on someone’s image, it means they’re new to Clubhouse.

9. Request to speak.

Want to speak? Press the hand icon in the lower right to be added to a speaker request list.

Lower navigation of clubhouse club

When you raise your hand, the moderator will be notified of your request to speak and can either unmute or ignore you.

If a moderator unmutes you, which will move your name and icon up to the speaker stage, ask your question or stay on topic with any points you add. You should also avoid hogging the mic, let others have time to speak, and follow any room rules that have been given by the moderator(s). This will help you stay marked as a speaker as long as possible.

As you enter rooms and raise your hand, keep in mind that hundreds of other users might also be requesting to speak. If you‚Äôre ignored, don’t be offended as a moderator can only allow so many people to the stage before losing control of the conversation.

10. Add friends to a room.

Love a room you’re listening to and want your friends to hear the discussion too? Press the “+” button in the lower navigation of a room to select and add followers.

11. Leave a room.

Because of the way Clubhouse is built, rooms with multiple moderators can go on for hours — or even days, so there’s no shame in leaving one before it ends. To do this, all you have to do is tap “Leave.”

If you’d like to surf the app a bit more without turning off the audio, you can alternatively tap “All rooms” at the top of the screen to minimize your room and tap through other screens.

If you click into another discussion, you’ll leave the minimized room automatically so you don’t hear two discussions at once.

12. See upcoming rooms.

Don’t have time to listen to a room right now, but want to explore Clubhouse later? Tap the calendar icon to see upcoming room suggestions.

upcoming rooms on clubhouse

If you see a room you’re interested in, tap the notification symbol on it to get a phone alert when the event starts.

By tapping on the scheduled room, you can also share about it on social media or add a reminder to your calendar.

13. Invite friends.

When I started my Clubhouse account, I and many of my friends received just two invites. Then, about two days later, I received three more. While it’s unclear if everyone starts or continues to receive the same amount of invites, you’ll likely get at least two to start with.

If you have a phone contact that’s excited to join Clubhouse, tap on the icon that looks like an opened invitation to search and invite your contact list.

invite friends on Clubhouse

Once you invite someone, they should receive a message with instructions for how to join, similarly to the one I’ve shown in step one of this list.

Additionally, their profile will note that you nominated them to join Clubhouse which could help their friends or followers find you later.

How to Start a Room on Clubhouse

  1. Start or schedule a room.
  2. Introduce yourself and your moderators to the audience.
  3. Look for hand raises — or requests to speak.
  4. Bring attendees to the stage as speakers.
  5. Own the conversation.
  6. Check out your attendee list.
  7. Ask listeners to invite friends.
  8. Remove inactive moderators or speakers
  9. Leave or end the room.

1. Start or schedule a room.

Anyone on Clubhouse can start or schedule one of the following Rooms:

  • Closed:¬†Only open to people you invite to the room.
  • Social:¬†A room that’s only open to your followers.
  • Open:¬†A room that’s open to anyone on the Clubhouse app.

To start a room automatically. you can either click the “Start a room” button at the bottom of multiple Clubhouse app pages.

You can also tap the icon next to the “Start a room” button to see which of your followers are online and start rooms directly with them.

Start a Room button on Clubhouse

If you’d like to schedule a room, go to the Upcoming for You tab and tap the top right calendar button to preschedule one.

Below I’ll go over some differences between starting and scheduling rooms.

Starting a Room

To instantly start a room, you’ll tap the “Start a room” button, add a topic, and select your privacy setting. Once the room starts, you can expand the privacy settings from Closed to Social or completely Open. However, you cannot change the topic.

Start a room menu options on Clubhouse

As the room launches, you’ll instantly be assigned as a moderator. You‚Äôll retain these moderator privileges even if you leave the room and come back later.

Scheduling a Room

When you tap the calendar icon to schedule a room, you’ll see a page that allows you to determine an event name, co-hosts or moderators, an initial guest list, a date, and full description. When you press publish, the event will show up in the Upcoming tab.

When the time comes, you or your moderators will simply enter the room to start it.

Schedule room form

2. Introduce yourself and your moderators to your audience.

When your room begins, your icon will show up at the top of the screen and you won’t be on mute. At this point, you should start introducing yourself, your moderators (if you have any), and other speakers.

At this time, you might also want to highlight what the room aims to discuss and any ground rules of the room. For example, if you’d only like people to raise their hands with questions, letting the audience know of that could be a ground-rule.

3. Look for hand raises — or requests to speak.

If your conversation is engaging, people in the audience might raise their hands to request to speak. When this happens, you’ll get a notification and the option to assign them to speaker mode.

4. Bring attendees to the stage as speakers.

Even if someone doesn’t raise their hand, you can still invite them to speak. To do this, just tap their icon. You’ll then see options to “Make a moderator,” “Make a speaker,” or “Move to audience,” which will unmute them if they’re already speaking.

If you make the person a speaker, they’ll just be able to speak until you move them back to the audience. However, ¬†if you make them a moderator, they gain co-hosting privileges and can also allow speakers and hand raises.

5. Own the conversation.

Because you can’t change a room topic once it starts, an off-topic conversation might cause guest churn when people tune in and hear a completely different discussion. So, if you start or moderate a conversation, it’s important to take ownership to ensure it stays on track.

To own the conversation, make sure you only make seasoned speakers or friends who are good at managing conversations. Additionally, while you should let others speak, don’t let speakers hog the mic.

If you do feel like the conversation is going off-course, politely refresh audiences by reminding them of the room topic and ground rules.

6. Check out your attendee list.

If your other moderators or speakers have the room under control, give your attendee list a quick skim to see who’s listening. When you do this, look for high-profile listeners or Clubhouse members with a large following.

If someone interesting is in the audience, invite them to the stage if you feel they could contribute to the conversation. If they accept your invitation to speak, introduce them to the room.

7. Ask listeners to add their friends.

While room moderators can add more people to the discussion, or change privacy from Closed to Open at any time, room moderators can also encourage listeners to invite a few friends that would also enjoy the conversation.

8. Remove inactive moderators or speakers.

Occasionally, some speakers or moderators will leave the room but the Clubhouse app won’t automatically refresh. When this happens, I’ve seen moderators move inactive speakers back down into the audience. This helps control the number of moderators and speakers as well as the conversation.

9. Leave or end the room.

If you don’t have any other moderators, you can simply leave a room to end it. However, if you leave a room with other moderators assigned, it will keep going until all the moderators leave — or one of them ends the room.

If you need to end a room with moderators, you will need to do this manually by tapping the three dots in the top right corner and selecting “End Room.”

manually ending a room on Clubhouse

If you want to leave a room you launched, but don’t want it to end for audiences, you can designate a moderator before you leave.

Because multiple moderators can keep a room going, it can last for hours or days. But, if you return to a room you started after leaving it, you will still regain your moderator privileges and your ability to speak and take over.

Mastering Clubhouse

While it’s still a bit early to determine Clubhouse best practices, here are a few things you can do to learn more about the app and how to use it:

  • Check out a few rooms related to your industry for discussion-topic inspiration.
  • Take note of how moderators manage room conversations while still allowing audience members to speak.
  • Join clubs and follow users with similar interests as you to build your Clubhouse network.
  • Gain awareness and more followers by participating in rooms, raising your hand, or hosting your own chats.

Cómo se usa ClubHouse. Tutorial para recién llegados

Tutorial para aprender a usar ClubHouse

Cómo se usa ClubHouse. Tutorial para recién llegados

Tengo que reconocer que he necesitado unos días de uso intensivo para empezar a comprender lo diferente que es Clubhouse de otras aplicaciones de llamada grupal… 

Para empezar,¬†Clubhouse es¬†una red social p√ļblica; no tiene el car√°cter privado/familiar de Whatsapp o FaceTime.

Frente a Telegram o Discord,¬†Club House est√° especialmente enfocada a la generaci√≥n de comunidades.¬†Podr√°s verlo tu mismo: aun estando todav√≠a ‚Äúmuy verde‚ÄĚ -con muchas cosas por mejorar-¬†la app est√° dise√Īada para que te sea f√°cil localizar personas interesantes y te encuentres con ellas en salas¬†-que puedes crear t√ļ mismo-¬†para hablar sobre cualquier tema‚Ķ

Y por otra parte, potencia mejor que cualquier otra la participación activa de sus usuarios. Es una aplicación supergamificada… Cada acción tiene su recompensa… Es adictiva.

Esta filosof√≠a est√° muy bien traducida en el dise√Īo de la app‚Ķ

Todo est√° donde tiene que estar.
Nada es casual…

En este post trataré de guiarte en tus primeros pasos en Club House. Iré dejándote algunos consejos que espero que acorten tu tiempo de aprendizaje…

Cómo entrar en Clubhouse

La app solo está disponible en Apple Store. OJO: es gratuita y necesitarás tener instalado en tu iPhone o iPad iOS 13.0 o superior.

No hay -todavía- versión Android. Tampoco se puede acceder desde web.

Para activar tu cuenta necesitarás una invitación.

Cómo conseguir una invitación a Clubhouse

Pareciera que medio mundo necesita una invitaci√≥n y est√° intentando encontrar el modo, un ‚Äúpadrino‚ÄĚ para conseguirla.¬†Cuentan que se est√°n vendiendo en grupos de Telegram‚Ķ

Lo más fácil es que te la regale alguien que ya esté utilizando Clubhouse. (Aquí hay más información sobre cómo se utilizan las invitaciones). No creo que puedas conseguirlas pidiéndoselas a un desconocido. Tu comportamiento en esta red está asociado a la persona que te invitó; se puede ver perjudicado (expulsado) si tu te saltas las normas internas e Clubhouse.

Un truco para conseguir tu invitaci√≥n:¬†descarga e instala en tu iPhone o iPad la aplicaci√≥n de Clubhouse.¬†Date de alta con tu correo electr√≥nico y tu n√ļmero de m√≥vil (aunque utilices Android). Recibir√°s en tu tel√©fono un pin para verificar tu registro. Al completar este proceso las personas que te tengan en su agenda recibir√°n un aviso de tu solicitud y podr√°n invitarte.

Si tienes teléfono Android puedes reservar tu nombre de usuario (te recomiendo que uses el mismo que tienes en otras redes) dándote de alta desde un iPad.

¬ŅC√≥mo se usa Clubhouse?

Lo primero que tienes que entender es que Club House está organizado

Por temas (Topics)
Clubs (Comunidades de usuarios interesados en determinados temas. Si quieres, al final del post te explico cómo puedes abrir tu Club en Clubhouse)
y Rooms (Salas) en las que se celebran las conversaciones. (Aquí te explico todo lo que tienes que saber sobre cómo abrir una sala o programar un evento en Clubhouse)

Tip: te recomiendo que a la hora de hacer tu primera visita hagas clic en el orden sugerido por ClubHouse. Accede primero a los enlaces del men√ļ superior, luego a las salas y finalmente a los Clubs.¬†CASI TODO EN LA APP ES CLICABLE

Las salas (Rooms) pueden ser abiertas o privadas. Puedes participar en la conversación activamente como speaker y/o moderador o solo como oyente. Luego lo entenderás mejor.

Y son ef√≠meras.¬†Cuando la sala se cierra ‚Äúdesaparece‚ÄĚ lo hablado en ellas. Clubhouse guarda una copia en sus servidores durante unas horas por si hubiera que revisar lo ocurrido en ellas.

Aviso: la app está en construcción. Aunque intentaré ir actualizando este tutorial es posible que cuando accedas a ella veas cambios no recogidos en este tutorial de ClubHouse.


Solo podr√°s tener conversaciones privadas con los usuarios que sigas y te sigan

Si alguno te molesta podr√°s bloquearlo o denunciarlo.


La primera pantalla que encontrarás al entrar en ClubHouse es el holloway. Más que un pasillo, es un hall que te acercará en dos clics a las secciones principales de la app.

En la parte superior de la pantalla est√° el men√ļ principal.

Justo debajo encontrarás 3 salas recomendadas (Eventos). Haciendo scroll hacia abajo verás las salas abiertas (activas) en las que se está desarrollando conversaciones y en la parte inferior, el botón para crear tu propia sala (+Start a Room).

A la hora de decidir que salas recomendarte, el algoritmo de CH parece utilizar tus intereses (los definiste al darte de alta y puedes cambiarlos desde tu perfil), los clubs a los que perteneces y/o sigues y tu comunidad.

A su lado, a la derecha, encontrar√°s el icono para acceder a los Clubs (comunidades de usuarios‚Ķ como los grupos de Facebook).¬†M√°s adelante veremos juntos esa secci√≥n a la que tambi√©n podr√°s acceder deslizando la pantalla hacia la izquierda.about:blankPrimeras impresiones de expertos. Con F√°tima Mart√≠nez, , Guillem Recolons, Emilio Cano, Pedro Aznar, Phil Gonz√°lez, Alicia Negr√≥n, Marcia Paola, Javier L√≥pez, √Āngel Gonz√°lez, Jorge de los Reyes, David Arraez y Eva A√Ī√≥n

Men√ļ principal de ClubHouse

Encontrarás el icono del buscador (lupa), invitaciones (sobre), calendario (agenda), avisos (campanita) y perfil de usuario.


Desde el buscador podrás localizar usuarios (People) o comunidades (Clubs) por palabra clave o intereses. Haciendo scroll hacia abajo verás que la app te te sugiere personas a las que seguir y conversaciones (Topics).

De momento no se pueden buscar salas (Rooms)

Tip: vincula tu agenda de contactos con ClubHouse. En una red social nueva es mejor encontrarse con gente conocida…

En mi carta a los reyes magos de Clubhouse he pedido un buscador como dios manda. El actual es bastante malucho.


Aqu√≠ encontrar√°s invitaciones que ClubHouse te ir√° ‚Äúregalando‚ÄĚ en funci√≥n de tu actividad (creaci√≥n, moderaci√≥n y participaci√≥n en las conversaciones).

Es una idea de marketing estupenda: consiguen que sientas que eres ‚Äúm√°s que un usuario‚ÄĚ.¬†Eres t√ļ el que haces crecer la comunidad‚Ķ

Los usuarios somos prescriptores

Nos ‚Äúdelegan‚ÄĚ el marketing y la publicidad

¡Qué listos son!

Tras unos meses en los que era una red social super exclusiva ahora se est√° abriendo al mundo‚Ķ ClubHouse quiere crecer ‚Äúgratis‚ÄĚ gracias a nuestra ayuda y nuestra agenda de contactos.¬†¬°Qu√© listos son!

A medida que vayas participando la aplicación te irá proporcionando más invitaciones para tus amigos y conocidos… Así que ya sabes… si quieres quedar bien con ellos… tienes que dedicar ratos a seguir gente, abrir salas…

Importante‚Ķ¬†aseg√ļrate de que la persona que invitas¬†(tiene que estar en tu agenda de tel√©fono)¬†utiliza iOS y que est√° realmente interesado en incorporarse a Clubhouse.¬†Una vez que mandas una invitaci√≥n ‚Äúse gasta‚ÄĚ. Si no la utilizan, quedan pendiente.

Si alguna persona de tu agenda trata de darse de alta en la app, CH podr√≠a ofrecerte la posibilidad de que le ‚Äúinvites‚ÄĚ sin gastar una de tus invitaciones‚Ķ

Calendario / Agenda

Como todas las redes sociales,¬†ClubHouse quiere que pases en ella mucho tiempo. En esta secci√≥n encontrar√°s una lista de eventos (Events) que podr√≠an interesarte. Te puedes ‚Äúsuscribir‚ÄĚ haciendo clic en la campanita. La app se ocupar√° de avisarte de que empiezan si autorizas las notificaciones en tu tel√©fono.

De momento diferencia sus recomendaciones en tres grupos:

  • ALL UPCOMING¬†> todas las salas programadas
  • UPCOMING FOR YOU¬†> Su algoritmo te sugerir√° nuevas salas (activas o programadas) en funci√≥n de tus intereses, clubs que sigues o perteneces y la gente que sigues.
  • MY EVENTS¬†> aqu√≠ encontrar√°s los eventos que hayas programado tu mismo, en los que te hayan etiquetado como ‚ÄúModerador‚ÄĚ o ‚ÄúGuest‚ÄĚ o las conversaciones que te hayan recomendado otros usuarios.

Desde aquí también podrás crear salas agendadas (Events) Aquí te explico cómo hacerlo.

Tip: usa las notificaciones con moderación

Actividad (Activity)

Aquí encontrarás notificaciones: avisos de las personas que empiezan a seguirte, la programación de nuevas salas (conversaciones) que podrían interesarte y las recomendaciones (pings) de otros usuarios.


Si haces clic en tu foto acceder√°s a tu perfil p√ļblico. Desde aqu√≠ podr√°s modificarlo. Pinchando el icono de la parte superior derecha (rueda Settings) gestionar√°s las notificaciones y podr√°s, entre otras cosas, actualizar tus intereses.

En la parte inferior tendrás información sobre las novedades de la plataforma, sobre su funcionamiento, política de privacidad…

Con esto terminamos de revisar el men√ļ principal‚Ķ

Como te comentaba al principio, inmediatamente debajo del men√ļ encontrar√°s los ‚Äúavisos‚ÄĚ de las salas programadas y las conversaciones abiertas en ClubHouse.

Información general de las Salas (Rooms)

Si la sala est√° asociada a un Club encontrar√°s su nombre en la parte superior de la ‚Äútarjeta‚ÄĚ. En la imagen, ‚ÄúMARKETING EN ESPA√ĎOL‚Ä̬†Justo debajo encontrar√°s el t√≠tulo/tema (topic) de la sala ‚ÄúLa cafeter√≠a de Club House Temas Varios‚Äú. A continuaci√≥n una lista de los usuarios participantes y su rol: speaker / oyente y el n√ļmero total de usuarios en la conversaci√≥n (29 usuarios, 10 Speakers)

Tip: para encontrar salas (Rooms) en castellano que traten tus intereses lo m√°s f√°cil es que sigas usuarios y clubs hispanohablantes

El que en la tarjeta/anuncio de una sala aparezca la lista de usuarios tan destacada no es casual: ClubHouse lleva ‚Äúutilizando‚Ä̬†influencers¬†como gancho para que otros se sumen a la app y/o a la conversaci√≥n desde su inicio.

El candadito en la parte superior derecha te indicará que la sala es privada. Solo podrás acceder si te invitan…

Haciendo scroll encontrarás más salas y un botón para ver más sugerencias…

El n√ļmero de salas sugeridas est√° determinado por los temas (topics) de tu configuraci√≥n y el n√ļmero de personas que sigas‚Ķ

ClubHouse est√° especialmente interesado en que se creen conversaciones.

Para no alargar más este post aquí te dejo toda la información necesaria para que puedas abrir tus propias salas o programar tus eventos en Clubhouse.

Y por √ļltimo el icono que nos llevar√° a la pantalla de los clubs a los que pertenecemos y¬† nuestros contactos con los que podemos abrir una conversaci√≥n privada.

Las Salas (Rooms) en HouseClub

Vamos a ir de arriba a abajo. En la parte superior encontrarás el enlace para volver al holloway sin salir de la conversación, el enlace a un documento con las normas internas de Club House y finalmente tu foto de perfil.

Justo debajo el nombre del club (si la sala está asociada a alguno) y el título de la conversación. Si la conversación se graba, debe de estar claramente indicado ahí.

A partir de aquí las cosas cambian un poco dependiendo de tu rol en la conversación: moderador (marcado con un icono verde sobre su foto), speaker y oyente.

Los moderadores gestionan las salas (pueden cerrarlas), las moderan y asignan roles a los participantes: tienen la capacidad de invitar a otras personas a incorporarse al escenario a hablar.

Tu pantalla aparecer√° dividida en 2 grandes espacios: el escenario, en la parte superior (Stage) est√° reservado a los moderadores y Speakers. Justo debajo estar√°n los oyentes.

Si eres orador o moderador, en la parte superior del espacio reservado a los oyentes verás a las personas que sigues. Te facilitará el que invites a tus conocidos a hablar. Si eres oyente encontrarás en este espacio perfiles interesantes a los que seguir…

En la parte inferior encontrarás el botón de abandonar la sala (Leave quickly), invitar a otra gente (tus contactos) a que se incorporen (+) y, dependiendo de tu rol, como oyente verás el icono de una manita para pedir turno de palabra o activar/silenciar micrófono si eres moderador o speaker.

¬ŅC√≥mo encontrar salas (Rooms) en Clubhouse?

Si. Es un poco frustrante. No está bien resuelto en la app… Su algoritmo de recomendaciones está aprendiendo, el servicio de notificaciones es un carajal y el buscador no permite encontrar salas, solo personas y Clubs... Así que vas a tener que poner un poco de tu parte y tener paciencia para descubrir conversaciones que realmente te interesen.

En este aspecto Clubhouse tiene muchísimo que mejorar

Aquí te dejo hasta 8 maneras para encontrar salas interesantes en Clubhouse

  1. Pide a tus contactos en Clubhouse que te avisen cuando encuentren salas interesantes haciendo un ping (+) y/o, si programan alguna sala, que te incluyan como Co-host o Guest. Encontrarás estas salas en la pantalla de calendario / My Events y los avisos (pings) en notificaciones.
  2. En la pantalla de Clubs¬†(ahora la repasaremos) encontrar√°s la lista de ‚Äúsocios‚ÄĚ activos en la app y en qu√© sala est√°n. Es una manera interesante de localizar salas.
  3. Estate atento a redes sociales.¬†Desde hace d√≠as los usuarios de Clubhouse est√°n empezando a publicar sus convocatorias en redes sociales:¬†en tuiter las encontrar√°s buscando ‚Äú@joinclubhouse‚ÄĚ, ‚ÄúClub house‚ÄĚ o ‚ÄúClubhouse‚ÄĚ.¬†Tambi√©n he visto avisos en Linkedin.
  4. Echa un vistazo al halloway (pantalla de acceso): en función de tus intereses el algoritmo te destacará 3 salas activas o programadas para los próximos minutos. Justo debajo, encontrarás una larga lista de conversaciones a las que te podrías unir. Cuantas más personas sigas, a más clubs pertenezcas y más activo estés en la app, ClubHouse te recomendará más salas.
  5. Mira tu agenda / calendario. Ya te he comentado que ahí encontrarás salas programadas basadas en tus intereses, tus eventos o todas las salas (ni te asomes).
  6. Utiliza un buscador externo como puede ser roomsofclubhouse.com o yoyo.club
  7. Consulta la pantalla de actividad (campanita). Como te he comentado, encontrarás una larga lista de salas programadas y las recomendaciones que te hayan hecho otros usuarios (pings)
  8. Estate atento a las notificaciones. En función de cómo las hayas configurado, Clubhouse te irá notificando la programación y apertura de salas.

Pantalla de Clubs

Puedes acceder desde el icono de la parte inferior de la pantalla de inicio o desplazándola hacia la izquieda. En esta pantalla encontrarás información del Club que tengas activo y su comunidad.

El Club m√°s activo (en castellano) que he localizado hasta ahora se llama MARKETING EN ESPA√ĎOL

Hay dos maneras de relacionarse con los Clubs: hasta que los administradores aprueben tu incorporaci√≥n, ser√°s ‚Äúseguidor‚ÄĚ y recibir√°s notificaciones cuando se abran salas dentro. Si finalmente aprueban tu solicitud podr√°s crear tus propias salas.

Como crear un club en Clubhouse

Hasta que mejoren el sistema (parece que ocurrirá este mismo mes de febrero) para crear un Club en Clubhouse tendrás que solicitarlo manualmente enviando el formulario que te dejo aquí enlazado. Si te entretienes en leer la documentación oficial, verás que es un poco confusa. No dejan claro si se podrán abrir 1 o 2 clubs por usuario… Lo que si comentan es que están priorizando a los usuarios más activos y constantes en la aplicación: aquellos que han abierto una sala semanal al menos 3 veces (… people who have already hosted a weekly show 3 times).

Como te he comentado, todav√≠a no est√° automatizado. A finales de enero hab√≠a 160.000 solicitudes pendientes que tienen que tramitar ‚Äúhumanamente‚Ä̂Ķ¬†Eso son meses de atasco.

Pero puedes intentarlo.
