When you enter a Clubhouse room you will usually see 3 sections (depending on how many people are in the room):
Top Section: The ‘speaker stage’.
The host of the room will be in here along with any co-hosts and/or moderators, who will be identified by a green circle with an inner white star next to their name.
You have to be in this section if you want to speak. Members of the audience can be invited up onto the stage, or ‘raise their hand’ to request to join it. NOTE: Not all rooms open the stage up. Also, if you move onto the stage, please mute your microphone unless you are speaking.
Middle Section : Followed by the speakers
As the section name implies, anyone who is followed by ANY of the speakers on stage will show in this section. You are more likely to get invited up to the audience (in the bigger rooms) when you are in this section as you will stand out more.
Bottom Section : Others in the room
For the first week after joining, your profile picture will have a ‘party popper’ symbol in the bottom left corner which lets everyone know you are new to Clubhouse; take advantage of this! Join some of the smaller rooms about subjects you are interested in and feel you are able to contribute to. Then have the courage to raise your hand and see if they bring you up.
When in a room, you can click on anyone’s profile picture and ‘check them out’. You get a sneak peak of their bio and have the option to open up and view their full profile. Towards at the top will be a button to ‘follow’ then if you wish AND if it is someone you are really keen to hear speak, you can click the ‘bell’ symbol to get notifications when they run a room.
I thinks that’s enough to get you started – enjoy!
