Tapebook is a #SocialReality network where you can authentically express yourself. Whether you record solo or with friends, taping is fun, raw, and completely natural. It's a place where you can be who you are... completely vulnerable, open, and honest.

Isn't that what life is all about? Being real and open with ourselves and others?

Here is how recording on Tapebook improves your speaking and conversational skills:

1. Tapebook Improves Your Speaking Skills

Recording and hearing yourself talk  can drastically improve your speaking skills.

When you play back a tape, you get instant feedback on yourself. This allows you to analyze your thoughts, ideas, sentence structures, tone of voice, and various intonation points.

For example, you might notice you say 'umm' or 'you know' a lot, or maybe you end your sentences on a higher note making it sound like a question when it's not. This feedback loop is vital for helping you understand how you speak and where you can improve your speaking skills.

2. Tapebook Makes You a Better Conversationalist

With people resorting to texting instead of speaking, we have to ask ourselves:

Are we losing the art of conversation?

Tweeting back-and-forth or sending emoji-laden instant messages does not connect you meaningfully with others. In fact, texting is a poor way to keep in touch with people you care about. It is only through real, candid conversations, and dialogue do we truly connect as human beings.

When you record with someone on Tapebook, you get to have face-to-face or voice-to-voice conversations. If you record solo, you can still have a conversation, but in a time-shifted way through audio comments. This two-way flow is essential for improving yourself in the art of conversation.

Moreover, practicing the art of conversation adds meaning and fulfillment to your life. It enriches your sense of well-being from the connection you establish with the other person.

3. Tapebook Helps You Articulate Extemporaneously

Technology has suppressed the greatest medium of communication in the Universe: our mouth!

Where are the great orators of our time? Some folks have a natural ability to speak extemporaneously while others practice this art meticulously through public speaking, writing, and memory. Jordan Peterson and Gary Vaynerchuk are great at speaking their mind and articulating their thoughts, captivating their audience in the process.

When you record your thoughts and conversations on Tapebook, you have the opportunity to speak extempore, on the fly, and in the most natural way. Some of your best ideas manifest when you're thinking on the spot and speaking extemporaneously. With Tapebook, you can capture these thoughts and conversations as memories.

4. Tapebook Exposes You to Different Perspectives

Everyone has a perspective, a map for processing the World. Two people could be in the same place at the same time experiencing the same event, but have completely different perspectives, observations, and memories.

On Tapebook, you get exposed to different perspectives and ideas which help you grow and expand your mind. Conversations foster dialogue and understanding between people, increasing your knowledge.

In an age where polarization is reaching a peak, we need to foster better communication mediums between people. You can also share your own thoughts and get feedback from the community.

5. Tapebook Makes You a Better Listener

In order to be a great conversationalist and speaker, you also have to be a great listener. After all, conversations are bi-directional – a two-way street.

When we communicate with others, we engage in the act of speaking, listening, processing, and then speaking again. This loop  is vital for being a great conversationalist and helps expand and grow the conversation.

To listen, we have to be aware and present. We have to intently process what the other person is saying. By listening, we're able to ask questions, make observations, empathize and connect with each other in a meaningful way.

Nothing beats speaking to someone... face-to-face, human-to-human, or through the power of your own voice.
