tsu Social Network Review - Free cash on shares

For this review? To be honest, I still don't know what I think about Tsu, the new social networking site that says they PAY you to post and socialize. In fact, I wouldn't be too surprised if it's gone in a few months like most other online fads that seem to explode like this one has.

But if Tsu is really what people are saying and so excited about, then it would be a pretty good way to interact with your friends online and be paid for what ever you publish. I did a little research to give you all a comprehensive overview...

What is Tsu?
Tsu advertises itself as the first combined social network and payment platform that lets users maintain ownership of the content they post.

"With tsū, users can monetize all social content in an exponential way due to the nature of how established social networks work and also in perpetuity since users forever tie themselves to other users vs. tying themselves to a platform. For the first time every content creator can attach their content to their social network and benefit from royalties in perpetuity.  Since tsu.co does not invite anyone to the platform itself, it instead allows users to utilize a short code invite system that tracks & distributes 100% of the social economics of the platform to its users. This unique architecture gives users an annuity for their content due to the way users tie themselves together through seamless invitations. As such, users are incentivized to grow the platform since the monetization overlays a network effect onto each tsū user’s social network. The more relevant a user’s content and the larger their network, the proportionally greater the monetization is." -Sebastian Sobczak

In other words, they will be paying their users for what they enjoy doing which is interacting with their friends on social network. All the ad revenue Tsu makes in one day, for example, is distributed to users based on how many organic post-views they get during that 24-hour period. The more views and engagement you generate as a user, the larger portion of the pie you get. The idea is that content creators, not just the platform provider, deserve to reap the monetary benefits that come with having an active user base.

This is the part that makes people wonder... After reading around some of the other posts and articles circulating about Tsu, I can see why there is some skepticism. So many people are attracted to hype and the idea of 'getting rich quick' without having to do very much or nothing at all.

There are so many ways to make money online nowadays and a lot of people are now seeing this social network as one. Paying users to join your service may not be common, but it’s not unheard of, either. Bubblews, a social network founded in 2012 with a similar mindset, pays users when the content they share generates engagement like comments or Likes. The payouts are small — about one cent per Like — but the idea remains the same.

The money and early celeb attention doesn't mean Tsu is going to dethrone Facebook anytime soon.

Regardless, for Internet users sick of watching Facebook’s ad revenue climb with the help of their personal data, Tsu might offer a reprieve. The only down side that I see is only US residents are eligible for pay out. Some people might not even know this because they don't really read the terms of use on sign-up.

So, is Tsu really a Social Media Game Changer? I guess we'll just have to give it time and see...
