Have you heard of Clubhouse? It's a social networking app that lets people gather in audio chat rooms and discuss various topics. CBAN co-founders Curtis Dean and Todd Kielkopf have been participating in various Clubhouse activities for the past several weeks, and we'd love to see CBAN members join the conversation!
One of the things we noticed when we started using Clubhouse was the lack of any broadband discussion. There are Clubhouse "clubs" on about any topic you can imagine, but none that really focus on broadband. So, we have created one! Our club is called Broadband Action and we're in the process of growing the club as THE place to go to talk about better broadband on Clubhouse.
Clubhouse is still technically in beta right now, and while an Android version is on the way, as of today it's Apple only. It's also by invitation only for now, but Todd and Curtis have invitations to share if you decide to give Clubhouse a try. Here's how to do it:
1. Drop CBAN an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you would like an invitation. We'll need your cell phone number in order to send the invitation to you
2. We'll send you an invitation to join Clubhouse. You'll follow the instructions to install the app and set up a free account. You can also download the app and set up an account before you receive an invitation, but you won't be able to do anything.
3. Once you are in Clubhouse, search for the Broadband Action club and ask to join. We'll let you in and you can start participating.
CBAN will be hosting rooms about various topics as we move forward. A room is a place where people gather to discuss issues. You can come into the room to just listen or the room hosts can invite you "on stage" to be a speaker if you'd like.
