    My loving friends

    @Sahadat sk check out Steemit (https://steemit.com). It's similar to Tsu. You can post your videos there

    How popular is Minds

    That's good growth, but I'm not hearing about it anywhere. USA seems to be the biggest market. What's their business model?

    8 app news

    I can see how Minds works, I think, but I don't get much engagement there. I boost a post and it gets hundreds of views, but no comments. I can't see that I will make much and my time is better spend elsewhere.

    8 app news

    I friend of mine writes for ZDNet. She just did this piece about 8app. She also wrote about Mastodon which is an open source Twitter clone (of sorts). It doesn't pay, but it's getting massive numbers of new users. People are looking for alternatives to Google, Facebook and Twitter, so there is an opportunity for new services.

    You cannot as the site shut down last year. There are other sites such as 8app, Steemit and Niume where you may earn something. I've been using Steemit and I enjoy it while making a few dollars. You can read about the various sites on here. There's no referral links for Steemit, but you will find people sharing their links for the others. If you want a chat app that pays you then try the WowApp link below. As with most of these services you need to sign up lots of people who use it to make much. You don't get paid for doing nothing.

    Steemit keeps moving on

    The Steem currency behind Steemit reached one year old last month. I think Steemit itself will reach that age later this month. User growth has been steady, but not as epic as it was on Tsu and a lot of new accounts are actually bots. I'm still not sure how those will make money as they won't have enough influence to make much from voting. The latest news includes: Steemit has a marketing team. Not much from them yet, but I hope they will work to make more people aware of what this system can do for them The Steemit software was updated to introduce some new features this week. We now get paid for a post after 7 days and this is based on stats over 30 days. This means that we are likely to get less whilst those stats are gathered over the next 30 days. It's no reason to panic. One of the founders left Steemit. I understand this was over disagreements about licencing the platform. He wanted it to be more open I still believe Steemit has a future. It's different to most other sites that pay as it doesn't depend on advertising. It's more like Bitcoin where the currency has a value because it is useful. The Steem value has varied a lot and is unpredictable. That applies to most cryptocurrencies and the market has been pretty crazy lately. There's a good community there. I just wonder how it will change if millions sign up. We may see a flood of spam and it will have to adapt to cope with that. I'm excited to see how it goes.

    Tsu vs Facebook

    Unfortunately Tsu is dead now. There are alternatives such as 8app, Niume and Steemit. Of those I've only used Steemit so far.

    Kevin Hinkle tsu

    I've made a little more from Wow lately, but still less than a cent per day on average. I gained a few more in my network, but only 39 total so far. It's not worth me spending a lot of time pushing it unless I can find a massive untapped market. Dexter who was on Tsu is posting on Steemit about 8app and saying it will be big. I've not even tried it yet and just lack the time. Steemit is still coming along nicely. There's a new way to use it via https://busy.org/, The posts (just the text) are all in the blockchain and this can be used by different sites and apps. Busy looks more like Facebook with built in image uploads which is something the Steemit site still lacks. I mostly put my images in Dropbox and use some other services too. I know that's too technical for many people. 2017 is going to be interesting.

    Kevin Hinkle tsu

    I know some of them are playing with Steemit, 8app and Niume. I connected with some of them on Google+ and Twitter, so I still see their updates. Steemit is the only other site I've joined since Tsu collapsed and I'm happy there. For me it's as much about the community as the money and I've found lots of cool people. I never did too well with WowApp. I have a few contacts and a small network, but only make pennies each month.

    Kevin Hinkle tsu

    I was just wondering what happened to Hinkle after Tsu. I see he's on Twitter, but with not such a massive following. He's still using hearts in his posts. Is he on any of the other paying sites?

    Another update. Steem is holding steady around 15 to 16c. My account is worth about $600 after nearly six months. Some posts will be worth a few cents, but I get a few of $10 or more. It's really down to what the big players like, but more people are building their influence, so it should be more democratic as time goes on. They have some big plans for developments this year. They gain a few hundred new users each day. At some point they need a boost from publicity or celebrity users to increase that. Meanwhile I'm having fun.
  12. Hello Guyz How are you?

      Hi. I'm not in this forum much. I'm mostly on Steemit these days. Hope it's good with you

    My WowApp Shop Experience & Review

    Ah, that sounds like the Quidco site I've been using to get cashback. I'll check this out

    My WowApp Shop Experience & Review

    Interesting. I don't have much credit on Wow yet, but it's great that there are places to spend it

    Synereo Finances

    The Synereo team have had some issues recently with one of the founders being booted out https://blog.synereo.com/2016/12/03/synereo-update/ I see Amp is falling. They've been pushing this for a long time, but haven't delivered.
