Facebook had banned any Posts that relate or come from TSU the Social Network which is making news with a bang. So links like this https://www.tsu.co/PervaraKapadia would be banned as it has TSU back-link to it.
Why would TSU which is relatively very new entrant be a definite competitor for Facebook? Well it is very simple while TSU and Facebook are almost same in their functionalities what puts the TSU mechanism ahead is its Payment Gateway System.
TSU says their model will be the complete opposite wherein they will pay 90% of that ad revenue to the owner of the content [you] and only keep 10% for themselves. So, while you do not get paid to Post on Facebook a simple 'Hello' Status Message could generate a few cents for you at TSU. TSU is a social network that pays its users to post original content. Users can make peer to peer payments. Small businesses can sell their work directly on TSU and verified charities can accept donations from TSU users. For example the Nonprofit organisation Charity Water has received over $30,000 in donations which has bought food and water for six months to 50 families. TSU users make 'tens of thousands of donations each month increasing at the rate of 68 percent per month' according to TSU's founder and CEO Sebastian Sobczak.
Well, when you have Competitors that strong then People, Brands and Business Houses are going to swing towards TSU. What does Facebook do? Simply bans all TSU Posts and Links. TSU has 4.2 million users, while Facebook has over 1.4 billion, the Social Media giant stopped allowing TSU users to post items to Facebook and has removed all historical posts and links referring to the site since 25th. September 2015. It also removed up to 10 million posts and images from almost five million TSU users who made references to the TSU domain across Facebook, Instagram and Messenger. Facebook said that it required 'any website or app that integrates with Facebook to comply with our platform policies. It added: 'We do not allow developers to incentivize content sharing on our platform because it encourages spammy sharing'. Well that was then.
Now as of 10th. December 2015 TSU has removed the ban. All Posts that were removed have been restored. Now that the incentivized sharing on Facebook has been removed, we're hopeful this will bring TSU below our spam threshold for the entire platform'. It was very important to TSU that Facebook restored access to user's content. Sobczak is passionate about users owning their content and being paid for their content. 'This is value created by content - we never ask anyone to open up their credit card' he said.
If you see the Social Media Platform TSU and YouTube both pay content creators for their work. YouTube pays around one million of its creators whereas every user on TSU has the opportunity to earn revenue and donate that revenue to charity if they wish to or keep it for personal use. Imagine if five million people across the TSU all gave 10 cents to Charity Water. $500,000 is enough to build 50 water wells in Africa. Each well saves around 5,000 lives and provides a lifetime of clean water. 50,000 lives could be saved - all for doing what you usually do on Social Networks.
The restoration of TSU content is 'validation that [TSU has] an important platform that is recognized by the largest player in the space' said Sobczak.
TSU receives 10% of the revenue your content generates in order to cover the costs of doing business.
After that, 50% the remaining earnings are paid to the user who created and shared the content.
The other half of the remaining earned revenue is distributed to the user’s network Family Tree in thirds.
As a user on social media platforms, your content and interactions are valuable. On TSU, you will get paid for your content.
Half of your earned revenue is in the form of royalties generated by the content you post.
Sharing content on TSU is as simple as any other Social Platform. Sign up, post your status, photos, or videos to your page, and engage with your friends as little or as often as you’d like.
TSU users are users just like any other Social Media Platform. You get online to share content with your friends, family and business network.
The more you share, the greater your potential to earn some extra money.
The content you share is forever tied to you and you earn 33.3% of the revenue they create in perpetuity and about 11% of their audience’s income that they make forever.
Hope over and say hello to me on TSU: https://www.tsu.co/PervaraKapadia
For example, say user 1 invites user 2 to join TSU. If user 2 decides to join, user 1 gets paid. Then, if users 2 decides to stay and invites user 3 to check out TSU, both user 2 and user 1 get paid—and so on.
TSU has created an algorithm as to how it shares advertising revenues with its users. An image below directly from their FAQ clearly illustrates how they are calculating and splitting royalties:
10% go to TSU
50% of the remaining 90% (i.e. 45% of the total) go to the content creator
The remaining 45% is divided between those that directly invited the content creator to join TSU [the content creator is considered a 'child' in TSU terms to the person who invited them], the person that invited your 'father,' and finally the person who invited your 'grandfather' in a diminishing calculation that they call the 'rule of infinite thirds'.
In other words, there are two sides to monetizing one’s TSU presence: Creating content and recruiting others to join the network and hope that they generate revenues with their own content that you will be able to share in. It is this 'recruiting' aspect which is unfortunately working against TSU by giving it a bad name; on the other hand, though, it also means that TSU has built itself a large and LOUD army of brand advocates evangelizing their platform from the beginning.
You should promote your TSU presence to your other social networks and communities [but DON’T overdo it]
Within TSU you should be genuinely engaging and developing relationships with similar-minded users
You should search for and follow/like others that fit your target demographic
Your content should ideally be unique and at least geared towards the unique TSU community.
