Being touted as “Facebook with a conscience”, Tsu is making big waves in the social media world. With 3.5 million registered users in its’ first six months—which is faster growth than FB and Twitter had– they look like they could be a TSUnami if the trend continues. So, what’s the premise behind this new platform? Tsu believes that users should be compensated for the content they create. A quote on their site states, “We believe in quality content, real ownership, and the value of one’s own network. We recognize members for their likeness, image and content. Our content creators earn fair value for all the social things they already do.”
Tsu is an invite only platform that rewards social activity for all users. You can share photos, videos, and any type of content with your followers. They serve ads to generate revenue on the platform but give 90% of it back to the users because you are supplying the content—after all, you own it.
Think about all friends you told to join Facebook at the beginning. The posts you’ve shared, all the pages you’ve liked, and all the groups you’ve joined/started since creating your Facebook profile. Now, imagine how much revenue you’ve generated for Facebook. Now imagine how much you could have generated for yourself. Revenue that, with just a click of a mouse on Tsu, could be shared with the charity of your choice. No personal bank info needed.
Tsu has the support of many companies including nonprofit partners like DIFFA Dallas, No More Tears, charity : water, and ema (Environmental Media Association). They were also chosen as the Media Partner of the Year by the Make A Wish Foundation.
