Who Owns Social Media; Follow the Shares
People are now beginning the next great social media migration. Tsū is a brand new social network with $7 million in backing that pays users to be social - it's recieved a shit ton of media coverage lately from Re/code, Billboard, VentureBeat, Examiner, the New York Business Journal, ZDnet, Social Times and has plans to not only dislodge Facebook but it also offers a PayPal alternative built into the platform. Tsū launched Oct. 14th so ithis is a great chance to "be first" on a social network.
How Do I Make Money?
Tsū aggregates advertising, sponsorship and partnership dollars and pays you for clicks and views of ads around your content and the content of those in your network. Tsū keeps 10% of the revenue, the original content creator keeps 45% and their network shares the remaining 45%. The more interaction you can get around your content and increasing the size of your network will effect your ability to make money.
