Flag: Invitation-only audio chat platform Clubhouse has decided to address some major concerns about user privacy on its platform. The exclusive mega social media platform would no longer require users to give access to their phone contacts in order to invite other people to the platform, and would simply require the user to enter the person’s phone number that he wishes to invite. With this, the platform used by bigwigs like Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, hopes to reduce complaints about this problem. The platform was criticized for unnecessarily asking for user contact phone numbers and also for creating profiles for people who likely intended never to join the Clubhouse.
In this regard, Clubhouse Director Paul Davidson also said that at the moment users have the option to ask Clubhouse to delete any contacts they have already uploaded, while a feature is in the process of being updated. development to allow users to delete these contacts on their own.

Apart from that, Clubhouse is also expanding its list of features. The platform would introduce language filters, so users can view audio conversations in their preferred language. Clubhouse works by asking users to select their favorite topics and then, on the home page, shows them all of the audio discussions being conducted around those topics. In this vast list, it is possible that users may miss out on a suitable solution due to an influx of all chats, even in languages they do not understand. This feature is likely to make it easier for users to navigate the platform and get the most out of it.
Apart from that, the platform would also provide link sharing support, whether for profiles or clubs. In addition, applications to join a club would be allowed to come from the group itself, rather than having to come from an individual.
As with all social media, abuse is a problem for Clubhouse as well. The platform therefore includes more tools to detect such abuses and ensure the safety of the use of the platform.
Clubhouse also plans to give creators a boost by introducing a Creator First Accelerator program designed to give creators the resources they need to bring their projects to life. For that, only 20 people would be eligible, at least initially, and registrations for the same would end on March 31.
It has become imperative for Clubhouse to address user concerns, because although it has the advantage of being an audio chat platform that allows users to feel like part of exclusive elite clubs, Much bigger platforms like Twitter and maybe Facebook bring out competitors for the platform. This could be a problem as both of these social media sites have huge user bases that they can take advantage of.
