New social site, Netropolitan, targets the wealthy
The site costs $9,000 to join, then $3,000 per year
It's founded by James Touchi-Peters, a composer and conductor
He says it's basically an online country club
Would you enjoy social media more without all those pesky 99-percenters complaining about their mortgage payments and high cable bills?
For a mere $9,000, Netropolitan is here to help.
Launched Tuesday, Netropolitan bills itself as “the online country club for people with more money than time.”
To join, users must pony up $9,000 for dues and a membership fee, then another $3,000 per year after that.
If it all seems like a joke – an elaborate ruse in an age when Facebook, Twitter and a host of other social networks are free – the man behind the idea assures you it is not.
“This is 100% real, and I believe there is a need and an audience for this service,” said James Touchi-Peters, Netropolitan’s founder.
