When was the Clubhouse app launched?
The Clubhouse came into existence in March 2020 in the US and was very exclusively used back then. In the early days, it was a small community of people who talked and interacted and was precisely used by venture capitalists.
The app icon
Interestingly enough that when you will download the app, you will find odd, monochrome photography of a person as the app logo, unlike other social media platforms that generally have graphical logos. And well, officially Clubhouse App has no logo. The app will be an ever-rotating black-and-white photo of a human as its app logo. These individuals who will appear on the logo will be real-life clubhouse users. These individuals will be picked by The Clubhouse whom Clubhouse will feel has a thorough knowledge of Clubhouse as a platform. They will keep changing the symbol after every few weeks.
Who is the present logo of Clubhouse?
The woman on Clubhouse’s logo right now is Asian American Artist And Activist Drue Kataoka. Kataoka is known to have made an impressive network, with great ethics to raise over $100,000 in Clubhouse rooms to #StopAsianHate and—in partnership with Dr. Bernice King, CEO of The King Center at an event named #24HoursofLove. It was to support racial justice.
With the number of hate crimes against Asian Americans on the rise, Kataoka decided to use her over 700,000 Clubhouse followers to hold open discussions about Asian American identity, hate crimes, and racial stereotypes. Her #StopAsianHate campaign and fundraiser, which she launched in a Clubhouse room, reached its initial $10,000 campaign target inside the first hour and has raised over $90,000 for the Asian Am Foundation.
