How to Earn from Tsu?
What is tsū?
Date Launched: Tuesday - October 21, 2014
Founder: Sebastian Sobczak
Tsu have $7 million investment led by Sancus Capital Prive and New-York based.
Tsū have a concept just like Bubblews that promises to pay it's members for every content created. Bubblews focuses on blogs while tsū focuses on sharing and interactions just like Facebook.
This benefits the site’s most popular users like celebrities and popular figures. During the site’s beta test, rapper 50 Cent and NBA star Carmelo Anthony tried Tsu platform.
Tsu is on HTTPS which means it's a secured site and if it's on HTTPS google will prioritize it which is good for SEO.

How to join tsū?
I read an article about this from a Blogger shared on my Facebook feed. I did not pay too much attention to it until I got an e-mail from my friend who also happens to be a Bubblews member. He asked me if I would like to join another earning site. I was told that in order for me to become a member of the site - I need to be invited by it's existing member just like him.
I was given the link and after accepting the invitation, I was asked to enter my information just like when I'm signing up with Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and other websites. I became the child of the member who invited me.
In order for you to earn more - you need to grow your so-called family tree by inviting your friends from other social media sites like Facebook and Twitter just like a multi-level-marketing.
I thought that the website is a scam but based on my own experience, it's not. This is a blogger's point of view.
"It's a sharing site where you could share your photos, video links, and web links."
Sharing the links from my website to tsū allowed my website to get more unique visitors which is good. I also have a Facebook Page and own a Facebook account where I could share my web links but few people are able to see it since there is a limitation except if I will pay for Facebook Ads to boost my post.
I read some reviews about this website - some are good and some are bad. Some people felt that it's like Yuwie which is a social networking site that pays users for their interactions but was shutdown for the reason that it's not profitable. Some people are thinking that this maybe another marketing scam.
When I checked my Twitter account and searched for #tsu - most publishers already created their tsu account which allowed them to advertise their published books and novels.
Tsu as social media
Majority of the countries using Tsu: U.S.A., Philippines, India, Vietnam, Japan, Hungary and Spain. Sometimes I'm using Google translate to translate some of the messages I got from some members.
Mobile Application for Tsū
*Tsū App is also available for iPhones, Android Mobile Phones and Tablets.
Once installed and your Tsu account is signed in, you will get notification allerts on your device about the people who followed you, liked your post, and made comments on your post.
About the Mobile App:
Do you like the Mobile App of Tsū?
I read an article online about Tsu and the author indicated that Tsu is using the same platform like Facebook but the author does not want to get invitations from this website for he is a friend of Mark Zuckerberg (founder of Facebook) and he does not want to join a multi-level-marketing scheme. He is upset because most people are saying they are not being paid by Facebook for their social interactions. Although he got lots of Tsu invitations on his blog's comment section.
Tsu's interface is like Facebook but the color is green.
Some people say green is the color of the money. It may also signify growth since Tsu believes that the success of the site depends on the Family Tree which consists of the parent (which is the original member), child (the recruited member) and grandchild which is the member being recruited by the child.
There is also a notification area that allows you to check who followed you and made comments on your post. It allows you to interact faster with the other members.
This also gives enough traffic for the site to get more advertisers.
How tsū share the revenue?
Just like other earning websites, Tsu also have their rules and limitations.
Among their limitations are the following:
- You are allowed to create 24 posts per day
- 8 re-shares per day
- like other posts 1,000 times per day
- send 50 friend requests per day
- you can follow up to 1000 members
- you can add up to 5000 friends
- use @MENTION 10 times per post
- use #HASHTAG 10 times per post
Similarities Between Facebook and tsū:
With Facebook and tsū you could share your photos and posts with friends and family members.
With Facebook there is a News Feed that allows you to see the posts of your friends and close friends while tsū have a Feed area where you could see the posts of your friends and tsū members that you follow.
You could like a post, make a comment and share it.
Difference Between Facebook and Tsu:
With Facebook you can:
- add up to 5,000 friends
- upload videos
- block Facebook members
- delete your Facebook account and then restore it
- share and create posts anytime
Tsu is the opposite.
There is a limit in sharing the posts of others in tsū to prevent spamming.
Deleted tsū account cannot be restored and your earnings will go to tsū community.
Facebook and Tsū
There are speculations that Tsū will overpower Facebook since there is no earning offered by Facebook.
Based on Alexa Rankings of Facebook
#2 United States of America
I've been a Facebook member since Year 2009. I love Facebook because that is where I connect with my friends and relatives here and abroad. I also love the Facebook Page because it's free and it's good for our local business.
I saw how Facebook overpowered Friendster because of their Farmville game and now here is Tsu offering earnings for it's members. Facebook had been popular for a long time and I think it will not be overpowered by Tsu.
I like Tsū because it's a good place to share my web links from my blogs and website. Let's see how long it will last, if it will overpower popular social media sites such as Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Twitter. Let's see how much would be the earnings Tsu members would get from them.
My Experience with Tsu
As of now, my bank is at $.08 because I'm not that active. I've been busy with our local business, writing here on Hubpages, Bubblews and Writedge which is also another earning site. I also create blogs on my own website.
Most of the things I saw there are pictures about Tsu, pictures of beautiful places, blogs, and Youtube Video Links.
You need to be creative in order for your content to be shared. If it's unique, you'll earnings will increase as well as those members under your Family Tree.
I was able to invite one there but I think she wants to earn more from writing articles.
I was told by some people that they are already earning good amount there.
