The Social Media Platform that Pays

Updated on November 12, 2015

About

Tsu is a new Social Media platform. It was started just a couple years ago. The platform is invite only. You need a special invite code which they call "shortcodes" to join. Unlike many of the other social media startups that were created around the same time, Tsu is still thriving. Many of the other platforms died off, but Tsu still has an active community. It is taking away market share from the big name companies such as Facebook and Twitter. Facebook is so worried that any mention of Tsu is automatically deleted. You can't mention the name in comments, pictures, and posts. Even Instagram(owned by Facebook) doesn't allow you to mention Tsu. You might be wondering why big name social media companies such as Facebook are getting worried. It is because Tsu pays you to share original content!

How It Works

Tsu works in a similar way to all the other social media platforms. You can share photos, thoughts, videos, links, opinions, etc. The one major difference is that TSU PAYS YOU! They encourage users to post high quality, original content. Spamming is frowned upon on this platform. They take actions to prevent spam. On this site there is no #followforfollow or #likeforlike. People follow eachother because they like the content they share. Because of this, Tsu pays you a share of ad revenue. In fact Tsu only gets 10% of the revenue. The users get the rest.

Here is how it works! You as a user post content. You generate money from the advertisements displayed on your page. Tsu takes 10% and the other 90% is broken up for the users. You get 40%, the person who invited you to the platform gets 33%, the person who invited them gets 3.3%, the person that invited them gets .33%, and so on. It works because of the law of infinite thirds. When you invite people you are also earning money from their advertisements as well. The idea is hard to put into words eloquently. Please forgive me if I did a bad job explaining it. The image below will help you make more sense of it.

If you would like to join, here is the link to sign up. Remember, the platform is invite only, so you better sign up now if you have any doubts. It might be awhile until you stumble upon another invite link. ;)

My Thoughts

This is my favorite social media platform. It is cleaner(less spammy) than all the other social media platforms. I have only been on the site for a few days, and I am already making money. I like how they give incentives for people to post original content. This is what makes the platform so special. I look forward to all the new members on the platform. Remember to follow me! (:

      Lipnancy,

      You can post links to your Hubs, a website you made, your blog posts, etc. You can also share pictures you create or other artwork rather than an image just found on Google.

      I am confused. What kind of original content can you post that would no t be considered spamming? Could I post a link to a hub?
