Tsu Revitalizes Other Social Networks
Tsu has really been opening new doors for me. Much more than Facebook ever did. I've had people ask me why they should bother with Tsu if they already have Facebook. All their friends are already on Facebook, and Tsu's interface looks to them like some kind of “Facebook Lite,” so why bother? The earnings aren't big enough or fast enough to offer an enticement. So why should they put the effort into creating a presence on a new network?
Until today, I probably would have said it was because Tsu provides a more positive environment . And the fact that Tsu respects its users more than Facebook does. I may have cited the increase in page views I'm getting on the links I post, or the fact that I've met some new people through Tsu who then came to join other networks like Persona Paper. And of course the earnings are there, however small for the moment. At least some big corporation isn't getting all the revenues generated on my content, right?
But something else happened today. I realized that Tsu has also revitalized my other social networks . My Facebook page is getting more likes and comments now. And I've discovered the Pinterest or Twitter links for people I was already following on writing sites where they couldn't necessarily share their social media contacts.
It's more, though. People I encounter on Tsu really want to network. They aren't just exchanging contacts, adding people to lists, and then forgetting it. I have contacts who, on several different networks, are promoting the work of other people. And when one of my contacts asked for everyone's Google+ links, I discovered that these folks are really doing some great interacting on that site. This is what I needed to breathe new life into my G+ experience, and to give me hope that it's not just an idea that never properly caught on.
Tsu is helping me get more out of my writing sites, and it's bringing me new readers. I've even had folks find my Persona Paper link on Tsu, and join the site because of me.
Tsu is revitalizing my social media experience overall, especially my participation on Google+. It's a fringe benefit to the site I hadn't even expected, and an excellent reason to try the site, even if one is already well established on other social networks.
