When Clubhouse first launched, the social networking platform was exclusive to iOS and also relied on an invite-only method of gaining entry. As the platform was new, presumably the developers wanted to ensure the servers could handle the influx of users and to make sure there were no bugs.

Fast forward to today, if you still haven’t joined Clubhouse yet, you’ll be pleased to learn that the company has announced that they are doing away with the invite system, meaning that anyone who’s interested can sign up and take part in the social network.

According to Clubhouse, “The invite system has been an important part of our early history. By adding people in waves, welcoming new faces each week in our Wednesday Orientations, and talking with the community each Sunday in Town Hall, we’ve been able to grow Clubhouse in a measured way, and (mostly 😬 ) keep things from breaking as we’ve scaled.”

Clubhouse has managed to gain quite a bit of popularity due to how different in nature it was compared to other social networks. This is because for the most part, it’s hard to hide your anonymity on Clubhouse as it relies on people actually speaking with their own voices to take part in discussions.

In a way, and so far, it seems like this has resulted in what you could call a more “mature” social network free of memes and trolls, so if you’re interested, just download the app on your smartphone, sign up, and you’re good to go!
