Many of them are gravitating towards Voice as the new social network of choice, and live audio platforms like Clubhouse are gaining huge interest from users and competitors alike.
The Twitter Spaces clone of Clubhouse was recently launched by the company. Clearly trying to take advantage of Clubhouse's early success, Facebook, Instagram (which they own), LinkedIn, and Spotify are actively developing audio-based social networks.
LinkedIn confirmed it is testing an audio experience connected with your profile. Live audio is just as it sounds - live. There is something alluring about the platform's chance and conversational nature, but it is also something that gives others pause.
