COVID-19 proved to be a Bless for Clubhouse

Last year when the global pandemic COVID-19 hits the world, it forces people to sit inside their houses due to lockdown. People all around the world are getting bored in their houses as they have not any interactive way to talk to other people. At that point of time, Paul Davison and Rohan Seth saw an opportunity and created Clubhouse. The app went viral even though users can join the app via invite only. In eight months after its launch, Clubhouse became so popular that many popular celebrities like Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Kanye West, and others appears on the app. Now, many social network companies are inspired with Clubhouse to create their own audio-based social networking experience.
