I think it would be like Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook. The influencers and the influenced ones would be there. The apps are cool and everything, but I felt like it’s not enough to replace the human connection in the offline world.
I was able to listen to people talking though, and it was like a podcast. But much more engaging. I think it get tired if you were just looking for things to listen to. The searching can be quite exhausted. But join a community that care about things you care about is pretty fun. Especially, you can learn so much about other people’s interests.
But I felt a little bit exhausted. Maybe I should have not joined? No, I think I could just have turned off my phone and go to sleep. But my overthinking brain would be, heyy, you haven’t proceeded with whatever you have learned yet, what’s to do now? *Don’t go to sleep*
But I realized that sleeping late is affecting my health directly. I have been having breathing trouble recently again, and I knew one of the reasons has to do with my lack of sleep. My lack of sleep, predictably, has been because of the overuse of digital stuff.
But joining Clubhouse changed the way I think about human connections. It was the new form of public speaking, and using your own voice. It was pretty nice.
I was a little bit critical about it, but then I felt very much drawn in. I think that there would be something I can do with the apps. Some exciting things might come on the way.
After joining several Clubhouse room that I was confused because of the content, I think that I would need to have a proper strategy of managing my time and do so.
I was stressed, but then I felt like I have found a new platform where the crowd-out effect become a great resource. The needs of being social and curious would always be what drive humans forwards, and I think Clubhouse just did that.
