Do you wish you got something in return from Facebook after posting those beautiful photos you took from your Ireland trip? You think I should get paid for these. Well, you might want to consider the new kid on the block, Tsū. Tsū (pronounced ‘Sue’) is a new social media platform that launched to the public on October 21st. The network differentiates from Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ because it pays customers to post. Yup. You read that correctly.

Tsū is by invitation only. The platform itself does not invite anyone. In order to join you must have a short code from a user already on Tsū. This code can be given and shared with as many people as you wish. In fact, the more people that use your short code, the more money you can make. Need an invite? Here is my short code is http://tsu.co/MFaudree.

As a user any quality content that you post (or share) will be rewarded with cash. The algorithm Tsū uses is fairly simple. Tsū automatically tracks, measures, and distributes revenue to the appropriate user and their family tree. 90% of the revenue goes to the users and 10% goes to Tsū.

Here is how users can earn money on Tsū.

User A invites user B, who invites user C, who invites user D
Part 1

  • $100 of earned revenue is generated based on the content user D shared (photos, videos, status updates, etc.)

Part 2

  • 90% of earned revenue go to the users. In this case, $90 of the $100 is shared with all the users.
  • tsū takes 10% of the $100 for platform fees. In this case $10.

Part 3

  • User D, the original content creator takes 50% of the $90. In this case, $45.
  • User C gets 33.3% (1/3) of the original $90 generated. In this case, $29.70
  • User B gets 11.1% (1/3 of 1/3 = 1/9) of the original $90 generated. In this case $9.99
  • User A gets 3.70% (1/3 of 1/3 of 1/3 = 1/27) of the original $90 generated. In this case $3.33

The network defines their algorithm as using a rule of infinite thirds. Essentially, the harder you work at promoting yourself on the network (creating a family tree aka friends network), the more you can earn.


Because Tsū is such a new social network, this can make it difficult to get others onboard. After all, most of us are already well established on Facebook. So why would we join another network? The real question is are you making money on places like Facebook? Chances are you are not earning a penny for your posts or shares. You can post and share the same things on Tsū that you would on Facebook but earn some money doing it! Try out Tsū here.
