speakme was born in April, 2013, based on the premise that anonymity and text communication serve crucial purposes online, but shouldn't be universal. Web comments can be hateful and full of spam, and messages often get lost in translation when read on a screen. We want to make the world feel smaller by giving you a way to truly connect.
speakme is a social video experience to discuss anything and everything you care about. Members record videos of up to 30 seconds about topics that matter to them, and others publicly respond with their own recorded videos. These responses play sequentially, creating a full, vibrant interaction; less like a bulletin board, and more like a dinner conversation. By combining users' social media presences with face- to-face interactions, we are seeking to make the internet a friendlier, more engaging, and collaborative place.
