March 7, 2021 Clubhouse Open Ups the Pearly Gates 

This week Clubhouse opened "club" creation to everyone.  In fact, not only did one get to create one club, but 2.  

I don't know about you but when there are too many choices the first thing I do as a consumer is run the other way.

By opening up the Club creation to everyone it diluted the importance of the "early adopters" who have a huge following, pretty much by default and had dominated the "club" scene for a long time - giving grown-ups follower fatigue.  

Newcomers began feeling the unfair advantage, in my eyes, and the "follower" fatigue happened from some influential people outside of the walls of clubhouse and complaints started to come in. 

 In my opinion, as Clubhouse grew after opening up in late December 2020, other more pressing matters like privacy, scams, grifters, trolls, IP protection, monetization, customer service, HR, came into play - so they had to stop the slow clog in the pipeline which was caused by poor planning and management.  After all, one guy to approve clubs, who is he to approve the club?  That's weird, no? 

I don't know.  I am now less apt to use Clubhouse because it's a hassle to find what I want.

It gives me anxiety just creating this episode about it.  :). 

On March 7, 2021  "Join My Club" requests.  

We'll see what happens.
