LOS ANGELES, March 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Clubhouse Media Group Inc. (OTCMKTS:CMGR) (“Clubhouse Media” or the “Company”), a social media conglomerate comprising a digital studio subsidiary, a software division, and an innovative worldwide network of professionally operated content and influencer houses, announces the formation of its new content Creator advisory panel—a first for the industry.
The seven-member panel will be composed of professionals across various industries, including peer influencers, Clubhouse executives and staff, medical professionals, education experts, and counseling and human resources professionals, working together to establish the industry’s highest standards for professional and personal growth for all talent collaborating with the publicly traded company.
In the interim, the panel will be led by Arlene Guzman, a trained mental health professional and Clubhouse Media Group’s new Chief of Staff. The panel will work closely to advise Clubhouse Media Group on implementing new protocols and practices that ensure the highest levels of security, safety, and care for influencers in the rapidly developing world of content creation.
By forming this pioneering Creator advisory panel, Clubhouse hopes to elevate professional standards for the company, content Creators, and influencer talent everywhere while responding to lessons learned by the company in its first year of rapid growth.
“Being a trailblazer in a burgeoning industry inevitably comes with learning lessons along the way,” said Chris Young, President of Clubhouse Media Group. “That couldn’t have been more true for us, especially as Clubhouse Media Group scaled to meet the demands of both our brand partners and a huge influx of new Creators wanting to work with us. Our history of investing dollars in and devoting soft assets to Creators makes this a unique business model that works as an incubator for rising talent and an accelerator for Creators with sizable followings. Finding the right balance of personalities and management styles to fit a houseful of Creators can be challenging. Our industry is moving at breakneck speed, and in our position at the forefront, we will continually look for ways to innovate and course-correct in order to provide the best for our Clubhouse family of Creators, staff, and partners.”
The pronouncement follows numerous headlines over the past year that have painted the content creation industry as teeming with unobserved mansions that run rampant with unchaperoned, unprofessional teenagers all but burning their content houses down. Clubhouse felt a need to improve the ways it had been doing business to better support and protect its Creators.
“I think every creative house needs something like this,” said Clubhouse Media Group Creator, Michelle Kennelly. “This system will allow for more effective communication between Clubhouse Media Group and Creators and inserts us in the process so we can voice our concerns, work through issues, and find common ground that benefits Creators and the company, allowing us all to thrive.”
With full-hearted respect and admiration for the talent at the core of its industry, Clubhouse seeks to firmly establish protections, support systems, and growth mechanisms for Creators and influencers, especially those in their mid-late teenage years, so that they may focus on their productions with the same support, wisdom, and growth they’d find in their family homes.
Clubhouse is proactively attempting to learn from and re-right the industry’s past missteps while embracing and encouraging positive new developments in this nascent, rewarding field.

Social Media Etiquette Review – The New York Times
Despite your best efforts, you may cause someone pain with that Tweet or Facebook post. Here’s a refresher on social media best practices, along with advice for some pandemic-only dilemmas.
In an ideal world, your followers would think every photo, video or thought you post on social media is like a little gift to them. In reality, it’s hard to predict how posts on Instagram, Facebook and other social media will land, especially during the pandemic. After so much loss and isolation over the past year, people are on edge. That vaccine selfie may feel joyous and hopeful to you, but it could be a digital slap in the face to someone who hasn’t received a vaccine shot or who has suffered a grave loss.
“Someone could be experiencing loss in such a way that there’s no way someone else won’t post something that compounds their grief,” said Catherine Newman, who has written the Modern Manners etiquette column for Real Simple magazine for 10 years. “That’s how grief is.”
Still, it’s hard not to overthink things — and to worry that despite your best efforts, you may cause someone pain. Some social media experts say you should review your sharing practices periodically, so here’s a refresher on social media etiquette, along with advice for some pandemic-only situations.
Ask why are you posting.
First, identify your motivations. Are you sharing that picture of the exquisite cake you baked because you want praise, or do you want people to feel bad that what they made themselves wasn’t as good? If it is to receive affirmation, that’s OK. But if you find yourself trying to get all your needs met by social media likes, it might be time to think about what else is missing in your life.
Second, focus on your friends. If you tried to consider every possible person who might be hurt by a post — your seemingly unobjectionable photo of tulips could very well remind a follower of someone they have lost — you might never post anything on social media. But absolutely think about your inner circle carefully.
Ms. Newman, for one, hasn’t posted about her own post-vaccination visits with family because so many in her immediate friend group have lost a parent in the past year. If you’re in a similar situation and you still want to post your vaccine selfie or the first time you’ve hugged your father in a year, consider acknowledging your own good fortune.
“I still appreciate it when people say, ‘We’re so lucky and there’s been so much loss and I’m sorry if you’re experiencing loss,’” said Ms. Newman, whose best friend died of cancer five years ago.
Before you hit “share,” read your words in multiple tones of voice, as different people can interpret the text differently, suggested Diane Gottsman, an etiquette expert and the founder of the Protocol School of Texas, a San Antonio company specializing in corporate etiquette training. If there’s any doubt, add a cue, such as an emoticon, about your tone.
Don’t go low, go high.
If you want to post something negative, keep in mind that what you say or share often says more about you. Disagree (respectfully), but avoid sweeping generalizations about entire groups of people — or about one business based on your interaction with a single employee.
Additionally, remember that any message you share, even with close family members, will be amplified to your entire online community. (The tension may also be amplified around vaccines, health measures and the stress of a not-normal year.) If you are replying to your sister online about something, that doesn’t mean you can speak to her as harshly as you might privately. Ms. Gottsman advises taking a heated family debate offline.
“Don’t start a family feud on social media,” Ms. Gottsman said. “It can affect the next family holiday.”
If you are soliciting donations for a particular cause or charity, or asking for money to pay someone’s rent or medical bills with a GoFundMe campaign, recognize that the financial situations of many people have changed this past year and there may be many other appeals compared to times past. Skip shaming phrases, like “How can you not help this person?” Instead, Ms. Gottsman said, use ones like “If your heart moves you, I’m sharing this.”
Consider your audience.
Think less vigilance is needed, because your text group is small or your settings have been changed to private? Think again. When Heidi Cruz, the wife of Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, shared her family’s plans to flee a devastating winter storm in Texas for a vacation in Mexico, she texted only a small group of neighbors and friends. Screenshots of the messages ended up with journalists. Elaine Swann, an etiquette expert and founder of the School of Protocol in Carlsbad, Calif., points out that it wasn’t just one person who shared the chat with The New York Times; there were others who confirmed it.
“Even if you think it’s just your inner circle, there’s always somebody there who isn’t 100 percent on your team,” she said. “That’s the person who takes the screenshot before you delete whatever it is.”
Ban body-size talk.
Posting about food and fitness may be even more tempting than usual, given that a lot of people have changed what they eat and how much they exercise during the pandemic. But confine your commentary to how these lifestyle changes make you feel, not how they make you look. Among other things, not all people have had the luxury of more time to exercise during the pandemic — or if they did, they might not have had the energy to do so.
Dr. Lindsay Kite is a founder of Beauty Redefined, a nonprofit that promotes body image resilience, and an author of “More Than a Body.” She noted that your “before” photo — talking about how fat you look — may be someone else’s “after.”
If you really want affirmation and accountability for your fitness goals, avoid the sports-bra selfie and posts about body measurements. Instead, Dr. Kite suggested posting a picture of yourself in a blood pressure cuff, or a less body-focused snapshot of you jogging to your favorite coffee shop.
“Loving your body and improving your health doesn’t always lead to a more ideal-looking body,” she said.
Acknowledge your mistakes.
There may be situations in which a post doesn’t land as you had intended. Maybe you shared a photo of a masked-up pandemic wedding, but followers pointed out that attending still involved travel. Or you posted a video of your family’s Easter egg hunt, because all the adults participating had been lucky enough to be vaccinated.
Ask yourself how many people reacted negatively. If only one follower is unhappy, it may just be that one person is raw.
“We have a genre in my family we call ‘hurting your own feelings,’” Ms. Newman said. “Where you’re looking for something to hang some pain on and you find it.”
You don’t have to own the person’s grief, but you do have to take responsibility for yourself and apologize. You can keep it simple, Ms. Newman said: I see your pain. I’m so sorry.
If you post something that is hurtful to a wider audience — you inadvertently said something offensive or you didn’t consider all the issues — it should absolutely be deleted if it’s causing people pain.
If it’s not, consider keeping the post up, Ms. Newman said, because deleting it erases the post from public view but does not address the hurt it caused. On Facebook, she suggested an “edited to add” with your heartfelt apology. This should not include the words “but” or “if,” as in, “I apologize if you were offended.” These words don’t acknowledge the hurt person’s truth and their situation, or your role in hurting them.
“If you accidentally step on someone’s foot, you don’t say, ‘I’m sorry if I stepped on your foot,’” Ms. Swann said. “You did it. It’s not a question.”
Your apology should also include a thoughtful plan about how you’ll do things differently in the future, which can be calibrated based on how grievous the offense. For lesser instances, Ms. Gottsman said, a sentence like “I’ll think twice before I post,” may be enough.
These are words all of us could live by.
