As Polarity Technologies has learned, Facebook is now working on the development of a new audio chat product after the rapid success of Clubhouse.
Clubhouse, is a new type of social network based only on voice. As we found out from their website, users can hop in and out of discussion rooms to explore them and to participate in different conversations.
According to Social Media Today, “Clubhouse, the invite-only audio social platform, has seen a massive rise of late, going from 600,000 active users in December, to 2 million just over a month later. That’s seemingly sparked Twitter to move ahead with a similar audio Spaces feature, and now Facebook is also looking to get in on the act.”
Provided that Facebook already has the infrastructure in place to provide a service similar to Clubhouse’s, the news came as no surprise to us.
