Display Inc., stylized as display, is an online social media and networking service based in Norwalk, Connecticut. The display app officially launched in May 2021.[citation needed]


In September 2019, display (formerly Tsū) announced its planned relaunch. According to Chief Executive Officer John Acunto, display would share ad revenue with users, a 50% payout of ad revenue.[1] display also incorporated protections against spam and empowers users to access data, analytics and insights related to their content.

In an interview with Fox Business (in response to the October 29th NCAA Board of Governors unanimous vote to allow student-athletes to be paid for the use of their name, image and likeness[2]), Tiki Barber, former NY Giants running back, cited display as a “great platform” to put the new NCAA rules to use, adding that display enables influencers of all kinds to have the ability to monetize their own content and brands.  Barber went on to say that display is creating a platform that gives all users access to brand partnership, by sharing in ad revenue, providing storefronts and more.[3]  display’s John Acunto echoed Barber’s sentiment saying that college athletes were just one example of those who could benefit from display: "I see this as an opportunity for all kinds of categories of people who are influencers [and] who have brands to engage with us."[4]

display rebranded from Tsū in April 2021.[5]
