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!

Pinterest Needs a SEE FIRST Option

Pinterest Logo SmallFacebook had given users a “See First” option in July to let users determine what they want to see first from their Facebook “friends” rather than having to rely on Facebook algorithms. Or perhaps who to stalk, depending on the user and user intent that can always warp even the best of well-intended matters.

It’s a little harder to stalk on Pinterest given the lack of social bonding between most users with the way it’s used. People just follow others, in full or in part of select boards only. You have to make an effort to get to know somebody rather than just pictures of whatever they care about posted in your feed. There’s hardly any commenting done by most. You might as well be ordering pins related to themes, which you can rather than follow people, and have to put up with on the Picked for you feature Pinterest has. If they haven’t allowed an opt out to that, they should, but I’m here to talk about something else.

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.
