Written your social media team’s Clubhouse strategy yet? :)
It feels like pretty much everyone I’ve spoken in the past week has mentioned Clubhouse. Whether to ask for an invite, or to (mostly) rave about how much they love it.
I’ve spent a good few hours in various Clubhouse rooms in the past few days. It’s been a mixed bag so far. A lot of the rooms I stumbled into were U.S-centric and often felt dominated by Gary Vee-style hustler / growth hacker “experts” imparting their wisdom on anyone who would listen. However, I have been in some less shouty rooms where smart and insightful conversations were taking place. If you’ve managed to get in, how have you found it so far?

I enjoyed reading Benedict Evans’ post
about the ongoing debate and disagreement over defining what Facebook is. More specifically, is Facebook a publisher, a communications company, a media company, something distinctly different from all of these things, or just a hybrid of all of them? It’s something regulators, governments, users, and Facebook itself can’t seem to agree on.
The question is… does it matter? Some argue it’s critical to make such a distinction in order to create the rules governments, users (and Facebook) are crying out for. Others are less convinced. What do you think?
Here are a few other things I spotted this week which you may interest you too:
