Why does Clubhouse say, “Unable to follow in , Please try again”?

Unable to follow someone and not knowing the exact reason behind it gives you a headache sometimes. Have you also encountered this kind of situation while using Clubhouse? If you have, then stick with this article up to the endnote.

First of all, let me tell you if Clubhouse says, “Unable to follow <Someone> in <Club>, Please try again,” then the most probable reasons behind it are:

  • You followed way too many people in a short period, resulting in a temporary restriction on your account.
  • If you have already followed that club before and you try to refollow it.
  • If the specific person had blocked you.

To know more in detail, you have to go through this article. In this article, I have concluded all the probable reasons why the “Unable to follow <Someone> in <Club>, Please try again” message pops out in the Clubhouse app. Moreover, this article will provide you with a clear insight into why this kind of message is shown, How to skip it, and so on. So, Let’s begin.

Why “Unable to follow <Someone> in <Club>, Please try again” message Is Shown in Clubhouse?

Every time you try to follow a certain club or person, the “Unable to follow <Someone> in <Club>, Please try again” message pops out. There are a few reasons why this happens. To know why these sorts of messages pop out and so on, let’s have a look at the following.

Temporary Restriction on your Account

The clubhouse has set a limit on the number of people you can follow at a time. So, when you try to follow too many people in a short time, sometimes it results in a temporary restriction on your account.

Many users on various social media platforms are found following as many people to increase their reach. The user they follow starts receiving disturbing notifications, and there’s no way out other than unfollowing the person. So, as a solution to this problem, Clubhouse has set a limit on the number of people you can follow at a time. In contrast, Clubhouse has a policy to restrict someone from following more people if they follow a large number at a time. Clubhouse came up with this policy just to restrict the notifications users receive and to ensure no spamming.

If you are unable to follow more people on Clubhouse, the most likely reason is that you have hit the limit set by Clubhouse, and your account may be locked temporarily.

Solution

First of all, let me tell you, you can follow a desirable number of people without getting your account locked temporarily. The restriction will be lifted soon as it is just temporary. As soon as the restriction is lifted, you can follow anyone in the Clubhouse. However, before that, you have to keep certain things in mind. They are as follows.

  • Don’t follow too many people at a time. (Keep bit long time difference)
  • Don’t follow any random people.
    Note: Only follow a known person only

While Trying to Re-Follow  

Another reason why you will not be able to follow certain clubs or people is you have already followed that specified person/club. Not just in Clubhouse only, other social media platforms also don’t allow you to follow the person/club twice.

Solution

Before getting panic and worrying, first of all, make sure whether you have followed that person/club before or not. And if you haven’t followed them before, then keep in mind that you are seeing the “Unable to follow <Someone> in <Club>, Please try again” message for some other reasons. To check whether you are following the person/club for the first time or second, check the below-mentioned steps.

  1. First, launch the Clubhouse app and Tap on your “Profile” Icon.
    Note: The profile picture is in the top-right corner of the Clubhouse home screen.
  2. As soon as the new interface opens, Tap on the “Following” icon.

 The specific person had blocked you.

The last reason why you can’t follow some people is when you are blocked by that specific user. All social media platforms, including Clubhouse, don’t allow its user to communicate and interact with anyone who has blocked them before.

Solution

Before blaming the Clubhouse server/platform first, you have to clearly understand why you can’t unable to follow a person/club sometimes. If you are blocked by the user, then you can not see a room where they are moderators or speakers. In contrast, you won’t even be able to join that room. 

Note: you will see a “Capsule” icon at the bottom to see a hidden room [Created by blocked user].

Four Additional Ways to Fix the “Unable to follow <Someone> in <Club>”Error

If the problem is still not solved even after applying the preceding ways, you can try other additional ways. Simply follow the below-mentioned additional ways to fix the “Unable to follow <Someone> in <Club>” error in Clubhouse.

Check the Server of Clubhouse

Sometimes you cannot add your Instagram profile to Clubhouse due to the server down the problem of Clubhouse. The clubhouse is still in its beta phase, so server downtimes happen anytime. If you face any problem with Clubhouse, first check its servers’ status and see if it’s currently down or not. 

To catch up with Clubhouse updates, you can simply go to Clubhouse’s official Twitter account. And if Clubhouse’s servers are down, then wait until everything gets sorted out. 

Try Re-Logging to Your Clubhouse Account. 

Revoking the Clubhouse access from your social media accounts should work out for you. But sometimes the problem could be with your Clubhouse account too. You may not be able to link your Instagram profile to Clubhouse as user data may have been corrupted while linking your Instagram profile. To solve the issue, sign out of your account and try signing in after some minutes (to refresh its data). 

Clubhouse App Re-Installation

Sometimes, you cannot link your Instagram profile to the Clubhouse app just because it may not be installed correctly. In contrast, even some of its installation files got corrupted during an update or while in use. The best way to solve this is to reinstall the Clubhouse app from your device (to confirm that you have a working copy of the Clubhouse app). To reinstall Clubhouse on your device: Search for the Clubhouse app. Then, press and hold the “Clubhouse” icon until the selection menu shows up. Finally, tap on “Remove App” to uninstall Clubhouse. 

And after you have successfully uninstalled the Clubhouse app, install the app again, and the problem will most probably be fixed.
