Move over Facebook, there's a new social network in town. It's a site called tsū (pronounced Sue) and it aims to change the way the social networking game is played. More specifically, tsū will pay you to play. In other words, you'll get paid for posting content. How much? That depends on if you get in on the ground floor.
In the movie, The Social Network, we get to see the beginnings of Facebook and how Mark Zuckerberg eventually builds it into a billion dollar website, all with content provided by its users. All those ads you see on Facebook generates revenue that all goes to Zuckerberg. He's become a very rich man from those ads. How much do you get paid for providing the content? A big fat zero!
In the movie clip above, Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg brags how "my colleagues and I are doing things that no one in this room, including and especially your clients, are intellectually or creatively capable of doing."
It seems that tsū got a little more creative than Zuckerberg when it comes to sharing the wealth. If the prospect of getting paid to post content on a rival social network is incentive enough to convince Facebook users to leave, Zuckerberg will have to use all the intellect he has in his nerdy little head to figure a way to stop that from happening. Until then, Mark, you don't get to brag about what you are creatively capable of doing.
By the way, the clients that are shown and referred to in that clip are the Winklevoss twins, both played by actor Armie Hammer. I wonder if the twins are on Facebook? Maybe they'll sign up on tsū.
Will this new social network be the tsūnami that finally wipes out Facebook? Only time will tell. Maybe Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake will have to return in a sequel to The Social Network when the dust finally settles.
In the meantime, if you want to get in on the ground floor of tsū, you'll need an invitation. New members can only join tsū by user invitation (via member shortcodes.) Tsū's invite-only system enables them to track and distribute network value to the users who help tsū grow.
A short code is your profile page URL. The format of this url will always be tsu.co/yourUsername
