Clubhouse was launched in 2020
The creators of Clubhouse app are Rohan Seth and Paul Davidson, who officially launched the app in April 2020. Clubhouse functions like a live podcast social media platform, on which you can listen in to other people’s podcasts, and even join the conversation.
The reason behind the app’s sudden popularity is Elon Musk, who recently joined the Clubhouse app and thus brought it a lot of attention.
Clubhouse statistics reveal that the app had 10 million registered users in 2021
The number of Clubhouse users has increased since January 2021 by 4 million, and the application is currently valued at $4 billion, which is a long way from the initial value of $100 million in May 2020.
According to data acquired from Statista, Clubhouse has had over 2 million weekly active users in January 2021, which resulted in a three times increase since May 2020.
Clubhouse has raised over $10 million in less than a year
Clubhouse has received over 180 investments and fundings from capitalists and organisations since its startup, including a $12 million series-A funding from Andreessen Horowitz.
In January 2021, Clubhouse was the 5th most popular social media app on the App Store
By January 2022 it dropped to number 18. The app has a 4.8-star rating from over 690,000 ratings, and it has been downloaded 2.3 million times in January 2021. Clubhouse downloads peaked in February 2021, with over 9.6 million downloads. In December 2021, the app had 2.8 million downloads.
These Clubhouse statistics sign that this company is on a fast rise, and will soon surpass TikTok as the leading social media platform.
Clubhouse currently has over 80 employees
Clubhouse was initially a small team of only 9 employees, but it currently has about 80 employees. They are currently hiring for all positions, so this might be a great chance to get a job in a promising young company such as Clubhouse.
What’s impressive is that they achieved such great success, with only nine people on board, making us wonder where this company will go in a year or two.
Mark Zuckerberg is a Clubhouse user
Famous people bring popularity along with them wherever they go, and Clubhouse is not an exception. Alongside Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, other celebrities are using the app, such as Drake, Oprah, Kevin Hart and more.
Clubhouse podcasts and conversations remain private
If Clubhouse did one thing right from the beginning – it’s privacy. Conversations are deleted and disappear as soon as the podcast is over, the recordings cannot leave the application, and Clubhouse records nothing.
When you first register for the app, you can choose the topics you are interested in, and the application will suggest podcast rooms and users you can follow.
The average use of the Clubhouse app is between 11 and 22 hours a week
Influencer Marketing Hub pointed out a report made by a woman saying she used the application for more than 40 hours a week – yes, full time working hours!
Internet searches for “Clubhouse App” have increased almost 100 times over the last six months
Most of the searches come from the US, but as of recently, the application is starting to gain traction outside the US as well. According to Google Berlin and Quartz, Clubhouse is currently the number one most downloaded app in Germany, Slovakia, Turkey and Japan.
