MemeSpeak™ is a social networking tool that allows users to substitute an animated talking head for textual blogging, in many languages, to mobile on any social network or blog.[1]. MemeSpeak™ is a cloud mobile application by MemeSpeak that supports text inputs and natural language audio outputs in English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Vietnamese, Russian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Indonesian, Arabic and Czech.[2]


The company was founded by Mark Krebs in September 2013 to develop a server-based, multiuser text-to-speech/animation system, "MemeSpeak". MemeSpeak is an avatar-based social network for mobile and PC users, enabling users to upload and share talking avatars with mobile devices and PC on a global basis. Avatar Conversations are connected to each other through the use of “memes”. A Meme is an idea, style or action which spreads, often as mimicry, from person to person via the Internet, as with imitating the concept. A meme can be considered a mimicked theme, including simple phrases or gestures. An Internet meme may take the form of a word or phrase, including an intentional misspelling.[3]

The MemeSpeak system and animation creation contain proprietary algorithms for animation creation and multiuser support. The system elastically scales support hundreds of thousands of concurrent mobile or PC video clients and/or creators. Viewers do not need to be members of MemeSpeak to view the conversations on social networks, in mobile messaging or in blogs.

Globally, the website system appears in multiple Unicode-supported languages, European and Asian.

The animations, created through text-to-speech on the MemeSpeak website, allows users to create the animations and connect them through dynamic "learning" playlists of textual (and emotional) memes (which are automatically hash tagged) – the animations can then be substituted for text messaging and shared on social networks networks.

As users create animations, a dynamic index of meme-related conversations is created. This enables the creation of a "shadow" social network of of playlists of related conversations.
