    Hey BHW,

    I would appreciate your input on this as I don't know quite where to put my 2 cents.

    What do you think the future holds in store for these two new social networks?

    Personally, here are my own opinions. Tsu is a great idea. If the general facebook population were to switch over to a network that payed you, everyone would be doing the same exact thing, yet collecting $100 - 200 a year. Why the hell not?

    The downside with this network are the people who are only there to make a quick dime. These type of people are poison for tsu and could be the downfall of it.

    Ello is neat and all, but to be honest, I don't mind ads all that much, and if I had to choose between a network that has no ads and a network that has ads and pays you, I would choose the ladder. I think ello is a great idea for artists trying to display their work, but besides that, I don't see much use for it.

    Anyways, I just seem to be juggling back and forth on where to be spending my time. Your input will be great to hear. Cheers.

    There's some potential to both of them, but I wouldn't get high hopes with them. I believe Tsu is mostly valuable considering everybody there is trying to make money, it's really niched targeted traffic for those who know how to use it.

    Tsu is retarded.

    $100-$200 a year? I think you're vastly overestimating the value of user-generated content. It's a shame people aren't getting paid for selfies and subtweets.

    If Facebook shared it's revenue with all its users then everyone on Facebook would be making like $1 a year. The majority of people just aren't going to come close to the minimum cash out limit, so why would they stick around a social network that's steeped in competitive spam.

    If there's a monetization aspect to a social network then making money will undoubtedly be the driving factor for its users.

    What's going to happen is people who already have a large following on other social media sites will be the ones making all the money due to the pyramid scheme-esque element that rewards users for getting people to sign up through their links. Then what? To break into a market you have to solve a problem, and at that point no problem is being solved. It's a Facebook ripoff that most of your friends don't use.

    Also, they're supposedly giving 90% of their revenue to their users. How the hell would they expect to run a social network the size of Facebook on 10% of their revenue after that venture capital money runs out?
