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.

You have the gift of the gab to make the best use of whatever is laid before you but that is not the case for the likes of me. (lol)

I'm glad it is working out well for you. I haven't been posting much the last few days. I really wish they'd fix the problems with copyright infringement on photos there.

It is happening a bit for me too. And I am meeting up with people from tsu on other sites and they are interacting there and helping me out sometimes. It works just isn't fast enough for people. No days if itsn't immediate they don't care for it. I enjoy putting forth on several sites and getting a little for it. Doesn't have to be a windfall, just something.

I visited once the "Tsu" but I haven't explored much yet. I don't if I can have a chance to visit this once more :)

Tsu has not grabbed me as I hoped it would...

Ruby3881 That is an interesting point about Tsu. I have not joined yet, as my perception is that it requires a lot of time for networking and interacting, but you bring up a great point, by using Tsu to leverage you other social networks.

Now that's how I feel about Twitter and RebelMouse, rather than Tsu. With Tsu for me, despite your best efforts, it was all hassle. It should not take me 14 days to earn a single cent. Yet despite the fact that all my social networks knew I was on Tsu, nothing happened. The largest number of views I had was Black Friday. Yeah right. So reading my work was more interesting than shopping yourself to Christmas. Hmmm. And all those plagiarists and people who thought that one sentence made a post...? 'Nice post' is NOT a freaking comment. It tells me snap all about what you thought about the post I wrote. Worse than the spammers, that. **YAWN**. So I deleted my account and will not be back. Some places work, others don't. Tsu and Teckler are/were Facebook lite. And Facebook never worked for me and never will.

I am also on TSu but have not been active on it still trying to understand it

I went over there, but I didn't really understand it enough to pursue it. I need to go take another look to see what it is and how it functions.

I have to admit that social networking has never been my forte, but I am more diligent at Tsu for many of the reasons you've named above. I've met people there that I haven't encountered anywhere else, who as you pointed out, are serious about networking and for the betterment of many.

I have tried multiple times to sign up there and never get an email confirmation that will allow me to sign in.

That is cool to know that it revitalized your social media, I have an account there but I don't link it to my Social media accounts becuse I hate people seeing where I am on the net, it is wnough that they know that I am home. Lol!

I can't get the comment to work ! Lost interest because of that.

I am not sure if my traffic has increased due to sharing on tsu. I hope it has.

Hi Ruby,
great article. I am one of those people who followed your link on Tsu to Persona Paper. I have also found Tsu to be a far more positive environment and, as you point out, it is also revitalising my other social network sites. I have more traffic to my website since I joined Tsu and far more exposure for my business.

I must admit that I've never heard about this site but I will search it because it sounds really interesting.
