Why I'm Staying at Tsu
On Facebook I feel invisible. If I post a link or anything else on tsu I know it's being seen because I get likes and comments and shares from people I've never met in person for the most part. When I post on Facebook, where supposedly my real-life friends are, it kind of hurts when I don't have any response at all on most posts. I get tired of my wall being full of ads and sponsored material Facebook thinks I'd like to see and not seeing most of what's posted by the people I really care about. Facebook thinks I mostly want to see the people I went to school with fifty years ago and rarely shows me posts from anyone else. At least on tsu, if no one responds, I don't feel so rejected, since my friends there have not met me and don't really know me. I wonder how many of my real friends on Facebook even see my posts.
One more thing. I'm seeing links to articles from Bubblews and PP on Tsu I may not ever see in my notifications, and I'm finding more new people in both places to follow I might not see otherwise. I think that even if you feel what you make on tsu isn't worth the effort you put in, it still may be bringing you traffic from the links you post there. You aren't allowed to post those links on either Bubblews or Persona Paper.
I'll grant you that people with active children earn faster than those who don't, but so what? If you are creating and posting content people like, you will still make money and people will share good content. Be picky about whom you friend and don't choose friends unless you can see that they respect copyrights. Do you really think that tsu is where all those stolen images are stolen from? Maybe it's just where you notice them most. Anything you've posted anywhere finds its way to Google Images, like it or not, and is easily stolen from there. Watermark your photos and only post them at low resolution. At least then people can't get very far stealing them for use on POD sites like Zazzle that need high resolution photos for printing.
I hear lots of complaints that people aren't earning what they'd hoped at tsu and about having to wait until you make $100 until you get paid. Are you happy with what you make on Facebook and Twitter for your content ? Let's compare apples to apples. You need to learn what works at each site and build up a body of work that makes people want to read what you write and see your photos. What's not to love about being able to share your links with people who might not see them otherwise? What's not to love about having a chance to find new online friends and expanding your network? Forget the money and just enjoy the interactions like you do on other social networking sites. Stick around for the long haul and the results might tsuprise you. networking socialnetworks FOPP stolenimages
