Like other social media platforms, Clubhouse has built-in features that allow users to block, unblock, and inform others if the need arises.
Integrated audio chat application Club house It may be the next big thing on social media, but you still have some of the same old social media problems, like other users who are better blocked or reported. As important as they are to the social media experience, users are the least controllable element for any social media platform developer, so certain tools will always be needed to ensure that people feel safe and in control. As such, the functionality to block, unblock and report others in Clubhouse works the same way as it does on other platforms.
Released in March 2020, Clubhouse remains in beta and is available by invitation only and only on iOS today. Despite this, it has seen explosive growth in popularity, with the number of people downloading the app said to have risen from 3.5 million on February 1 this year to more than 8.1 million on February 16. Many of these downloads can be attributed to some of the high profile people who have made appearances on the platform, such as Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates. As a result, it has been suggested that Clubhouse’s pace of development has not kept pace with its growth in popularity, with the team behind it saying the same thing in a blog post last month and a number of security issues. emerged in recent weeks.
Fortunately, many of the most important features of Club house they’re already in place, including functionality to deal with other dubious people in the app. To block someone, a user must open the app and navigate and tap on the profile in question via search, their followers or watchlist, or a list of rooms. Once in the profile, it is simply a case of tapping the ellipsis menu (three dots) in the upper right corner, tapping ‘Block’, and then confirming the choice.
Clubhouse: About Lock, Unlock, and Reports
When a user has blocked someone, the blocked individual cannot enter rooms where the user is a speaker. The user also receives a warning about the rooms in which the locked individual is speaking. Rooms in which a blocked individual is speaking are hidden from the user’s feed by default, but the hidden rooms at the bottom of the feed can be opened and entered independently. Another thing to note is that users are not notified if a blocked individual enters a room audience where the user is also an audience member.
As of yet, there is no way for a user to see a list of all the people they have blocked. As such, if a user wants to unblock someone, they need to search for the profile specifically, open it, and tap on the ‘Unblock’ button.
It is also possible to ‘Report an Incident’ via the ellipsis menu in a profile, in case something serious has happened. Once the option is selected, a user can select a category against which to place the report, such as ‘Abuse, intimidation or harassment’, ‘Discrimination or hate content’, ‘Offensive or harmful content’, ‘Trolling’ , ‘False information,’ and ‘Spam or platform manipulation’, among others. The user can also provide a written account of what happened.
