The Facebook killer?

A lot of people were waiting for this. The real challenger to Facebook may have finally arrived.

A lot of people were waiting for this.

On October 21st came the public launch of a new social media platform, Tsū.

It’s almost exactly the same as Facebook, only two HUGE differences.

1. You own your content !
2. They are going to pay you for it !
3. (And we find it is better looking, what do you think?)

Tsū has positioned itself as a socially responsible social network. To honor this statement, it re-distributes 90 % of its royalties gained from ad revenue to its content creators and also encourages users to donate their royalties to charities. Founder and CEO Sebastian Sobczak said the following “Established social networks have built amazing business models prospering on the total monetization of free user-generated content. Why should anyone commercially benefit from someone else’s image, likeness and work giving no financial return to the owner? The markets we participate in are enormous, growing and can materially compensate each user — we’re simply and uniquely rewarding the users who are doing all the work. This is the way the world should work.”

The social platform already reached a mind blowing milestone of one million users in 5 weeks! It took Facebook 11 months to reach that level. How did it reach this? By word of mouth. And that’s the only way you’re going to get in, because you need to have an invite code from another user to be able to access the platform.

So, will you make the step and leave Facebook?
