Tsū (‘Sue’) is a free social media payment platform. 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.
New York-based Tsū which looks a lot like Facebook at first glance, only takes 10 percent of the ad revenue it generates, passing the other 90 percent back to users, according to founder Sebastian Sobczak. 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 network wants you to create your own network and control it. It also wants you to receive revenue for the original content you own and post.
90 percent of revenues are distributed to users. To maintain the platform, Tsu receives 10 percent of revenue. It uses the term “infinite thirds” to describe how it allocates its revenue. Here’s how it works:
From $100 revenue, $90 is shared with users. If four users have shared and re-shared content, the revenue is split like this:
The original content creator receives 50 percent of the remaining $90; in this case, $45. The first user to share the content gets 33.3 percent (one third) of the original $90 generated. In this case, $29.70.
The second degree user, who shares the re-shared content, receives 11.1 percent (1/3 of 1/3 = 1/9) of the original $90 generated. In this case $9.99. The third user (think your third degree connection) receives 3.70 percent (1/3 of 1/3 of 1/3 = 1/27) of the original $90 generated. In this case $3.33.
Its a very cool way of sharing revenue – surely something that other companies might be interested in copying.
Now that you have set up your account, search for friends or hashtags and start following people so you have content in your stream. Create a few posts and go like, comment and share other people’s posts. invite your friends to join your “family tree” which is your network. Spend some time learning the platform, download the mobile app (click here for Tsū Android app ) (click here for Tsū ios app) and just be social. Help those that you invite get started to grow a strong, active, engaged network that will be both fun and profitable. Tsū is great for musicians, writers, photographers and anyone who creates and shares content – which is just about everyone!
