ツ - Tsu: A Social Network that You Can Monetize

Tsu Logo

A few weeks ago, I made a post about a social network called Ello with the selling points of being simplistic and having no advertisements. This time, I will be discussing a new social network where advertising is one of its major features. This social network is Tsu (and if you are knowledgeable of Japanese Katakana, you will know that the kana for tsu looks like a smiley face, ).

Unlike most social networks, Tsu shares its ad revenue with its users. On Facebook, most users post pictures and original content just to share things with friends and waste time; on Tsu, you can do the same thing, but you will get paid for bringing additional friends into your network and for any ad revenue that your posts and pages would bring in. Instead of using all of your time making money for Zuck, you can see some of that money fill your coffers.

Tsu is not the first social network that has allowed users to directly monetize for building a network, however. Back in the heyday of MySpace, there was a network that I joined that promised money if one could build a network of friends. I have forgotten the name of this site, and I am sure it is defunct now since its user interface was cumbersome and it was highly disorganized (similar to MySpace back in the day). On the other hand, Tsu has a very professional layout and an easy-to-use interface. I am sure that given enough time, it will grow to be a viable social platform. I do not know much about its SEO value for the time being, but one could still use it to market their business and make a little bit extra on the side.

Unlike Ello, I have decided to jump in and join Tsu since it seems to be a legit network where users can profit rather than another dump for hipster-liberals to post their social justice memes. For the time being it is invitation-only, but your boy has you covered. If you want to join, you can join through my invitation. I hope to see you there.
