Have you heard of a new, ethical social media site at TSU.CO? It’s a relatively new social media site that is like Facebook, except that it keeps 10% of ad revenue and gives the other 90% to its users based on traffic they generate!

That’s right. They not only give you ad revenue for your content which get viewed, but they give you the vast majority of that ad revenue!

This is NO joke! Not unless credible sources like the Huffington Post and Fast Company magazine are wrong with those linked articles and some already 4.5 million early adopters have been fooled. I highly recommend you read those linked articles to get a lot more information about the site rather than just read my quick summary. Facebook is worried about this little start-up that it has banned links to it, apparently, though saying Tsu violated its API conditions!

Then go get yourself an account, tell your friends and give it a try! It’s going to be slow going as if you don’t have many friends there already, as I don’t, it’s not going to be effective. However, that’s what happens when you’re an early adopter. Otherwise, wait till your friends have gotten a start and then give it a try. Same thing would have happened to Facebook, and is still happening to Google+.

Don’t do it for the money

While there is promise of pay for your social media content on Tsu, it isn’t going to be a lot of money unless you can get a ton of traffic! If you were able to generate that much traffic already on social media, you probably don’t need to use Tsu. No. If you try Tsu, do it for the love and values for which the site (and its creator/owner Sebastian Sobczak) stands.

For my part, I’m going to donate all the money I earn from Tsu to charity. Now, I’m no social media mogul. At this point, I don’t even have a friend on Tsu, lol. However, I’ll make that commitment right now. Maybe in a year I’ll have enough to make a donation. They have statistics and a bank account with analytics to show what you earn, which I can share as documentation. I’m fortunately enough I won’t need any revenue I might generate from Tsu so I’ll take this action to match the noble stand of the site owner.

Your usercode – digitalcitizen

Tsu needs a usercode for anyone to sign up. I’m not sure why this is but I’ll just provide you with one. What else would it be except


Give it a try and have fun!

Recently, I realized that with my Facebook app, I could send 60 second voice messages to others rather than having to type out things. That’s quite convenient, actually, and I am learning to use it more. However, I also thought of another use for it, and that’s for birthday greetings!

I have started singing Happy Birthday to my friends (and family, which I’ll include in “friend”) using this feature to send to them for their birthdays, instead of simply writing Happy Birthday on their walls, maybe with a few other words.

Yesterday, I posted about cleaning up your Facebook and other social media “friends” list. Of course, potential consequences come with this because people will be “people” to take things personally that they have no reasonable cause to do so. That potential awkward moment or situation, immediately or in the future, in person or online, is enough for some people to avoid removing people from their social media friends or following list. So I have an idea to counter that while still allowing you to parse down your friends or followers list.

As part of setting or resetting things in my life for the new year, I updated my Facebook friends list. I mostly dropped some, using tips I wrote in 2010 on which Facebook friends should I remove. However, I also added a few who have recently come into my life and who I can say with some confidence I will see and interact with again numerous times in the near future.

On Facebook, you get notices of your Facebook friends’ birthdays. Most people just write “happy birthday”. A few add the person’s name to the comment. The occasional one will add an additional sentence or two. For the most part, it is pretty superficial, seeming to be an automatic and generic action.

One way you can suddenly stand out in a lot of ways, without a lot of work, is just think of a song you’d like to send that person. Continue reading
