We have decided to share the bulk of our earnings with our members who make os.me a better place with their writings and interactions.
I firmly believe that every time you write a positive comment or share your truth by publishing a post on os.me, you make this world a better place. Somewhere, in some corner of the world, your writing may have inspired someone. Ever since I opened up this platform to you, we have been thinking of ways to give back to the os.me community here. One way was to share with you any profit this platform may have made. While we didn't exactly turn a profit in our first year, we figured we could share a bulk of our net earnings with everyone who writes and comments on os.me. So, that's exactly what we have done.
Every post you write, every comment you make on others' writings or receive on yours, every time you share a post with others on social media, we award you with OS karma points. At the end of every month, your points are converted into actual earnings that you can withdraw. The earnings are paid out from a pool of money we set aside every month.
