Hello my fellow country people, as we say here in Nigeria, “una weldone oo”. in this post we will discuss a new social media that actually pays you for been social…when i say new i mean it’s still new to most nigerians online. The new social Network is called TSU(pronounced sue) and it is the First social media network in the world that actually pays you for been social.
We all have accounts of Facebook, twitter and Instagram just to mention a few, and in as much as we enjoy been on these social networks, it’s saddening to know that these social media networks make billions of dollars over our original content…..that selfie you posted, the comment you made, that like you made on that picture or even that ad you clicked on…these little things are what brings in the dough for these social media networks: Facebook even reported $3.6 billion in ad revenue last quarter,and everyone has always wondered how we could eventually make money off these social networks instead of spending all the on them and still gain nothing.
Tsu.co is the first social network that actually pays you to create content and engage with your network. In fact, they share 90% of their ad revenue with their members. And yes, you get royalties when the people you refer earn as well. With their headquarters in New York USA, the founders are,
— Drew Ginsburg
– Thibault Boullenger
According to Wikipedia, “The inspiration for Tsu came from the story of Ed O’Bannon, the lead plaintiff in O’Bannon v. NCAA, an antitrust class action lawsuit against the National Collegiate Athletic Association regarding the association’s use of the images of former student athletes for commercial purposes.”
IS TSU A PYRAMID SCHEME?
That’s what I thought at first, so I started researching the site. Big name sites like MacWorld, ZDNet and ABCNews have had favorable write-ups about it. It also has a Wikipedia page. It started in September of 2014 and reached 1 million users in 5 weeks (it took Facebook 10 months to reach that number). Now, less than one year later, it has more than 5 million members.
And that includes famous members like New York Knicks basketball star Carmelo Anthony, rapper 50 Cent, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and more!
But it’s not just famous people making money with Tsu!
In fact, an article at The New York Observer said that “one mother of four named Kimberly Hendersen began making hundreds of dollars every day when a video she posted of her signing her daughter to sleep went viral. Now, she has a record deal lined up.”

sound more legit now?
HOW TSU WORKS
The way Tsu works is simple: the network understands that what makes them money is ad revenue. The more people interacting on their site and seeing the ads and clicking through, the more money they make. (Facebook is well aware of this, too, they just don’t pay you anything for making them billions of dollars even though you’re helping them do it.)
So to encourage you to do all of your social networking on Tsu instead of Facebook or the other networks, they decided to share that revenue with their members. Here’s an infographic showing how that works:
It just makes sense. The users are the ones making the network the money, so to encourage you to create compelling content that gets the ads on the network seen, the network pays you when your content reaches more people!
This is not a new concept. There are lots of sites that pay the people who create the content based on the page views and ad revenue. This is just the first social network to do it. And with 5+ million users and growing fast, it’s on a clear path to success.
HOW REGISTER ON TSU
Registration on Tsu.co is free but by invitation.That’s logical, given the nature of Tus’s business model.
I’ll be honest with you: although I use Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. for business purposes, I’ve never had any motivation to make social networking a significant part of my life or daily activity. It held no appeal.
But Tsu holds serious appeal because it actually rewards me for being an active member. It will reward you, too!
So click the link below to go to my Tsu page and create your own account. Then invite your friends, family and contacts from Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+, your email list — wherever — and start getting paid to keep in touch with people!
It just makes more sense. If you’re going to be active on a social network, be active on the one that pays you to do so.

See you guys on the Inside!! In our next post, we’ll discuss how you can get more friends, followers and how you can increase your earnings on Tsu.
UPDATE : The TSU network has been shut Down. It is sad, but I guess we’ll have to move on.
