Brian Fanzo, Digital Futurist at iSocialFanz, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss the new social media platform that everyone’s talking about – Clubhouse. We discuss how this voice-only app is making waves in the social media world and how you can use it as part of your own strategy.
Prioritizing Conversation Over Content
Is Clubhouse the only social media platform that prioritizes conversation over content?
Brian Fanzo, Digital Futurist at iSocialFanz, says that the new app is a unique platform that could create a type of dialogue never seen before on social media.
As an invite-only, audio-only platform, Clubhouse focuses on real conversations and a new style of networking. Unlike other social media platforms, it’s not all about creating consistent content. Instead, the app provides intimate spaces to connect and share ideas.
As Brian says in this podcast episode, Clubhouse is all about authenticity, which is much harder to fake than on other platforms.

Quotes From This Episode:
The authenticity in Clubhouse is, you have to consistently show up as yourself…and that consistency is really hard to fake Click To Tweet
“The true power is in admitting what you don’t know because it adds validity to what you do know.”
“That intimacy and idea that we don’t have to put on a show on video, but we’re able to talk…means we can show 100% of our perfectly imperfect selves.”
