There’s a brand new social network on the rise called tsu, which pays its users for their content. For many people that are active on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, this sounds almost too good to be true. For this reason, people are skeptical of tsu’s approach to social media, worried that it could somehow be a scam.


However, creator Sebastian Sobczak recently sat down with Fox News and talked about the legitmacy of tsu, saying that its framework was inspired by YouTube’s partnership model where users are paid for their content. You can see the interview here:


A few things to note from this interview:


  • – Sebastian compares users who post images of themselves on social networks without getting paid for it to artists having their songs played on the radio without receiving royalties for it.
  • – This is the first social network that pays its users for their content.
  • – Tsu has several celebrities backing it including 50 Cent, Timbaland, and Lance Bass.
  • – 90% of the money generated by tsu that goes to its users is from ad revenue.


So one might be wondering, if this is truly a legitimate website that is willing to pay you for your content, then how exactly does it work?


Here’s an informative picture to give you a good idea on the tsu algorithm:




From the FAQ section on tsu:


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
– This is what we call the rule of infinite thirds


Already, there are several people claiming to have made $100, $200, even $300 from tsu in just a little over a month since its initial launch in late October 2014.
