The TSU Social Network

A few words about is a free platform built to break the traditional social networking model where users provide 100% of the content and interaction, yet their image and likeness are monetized 100% by the platform for no economic benefit to the user. By simply removing the platform from the sign-up process (like does), each user can now realize annualized royalties for their content since now they are tied in perpetuity to their audience.
