Introducing the social network for rich people only $9,000.

                      You can now join a social network aimed at wealthy people - for only $9,000.

Netropolitan bills itself as “the online country club for people with more money than time”, rather than the online club for people with more money than sense.
There is a New Social Network and You’re Most Likely Too Poor to Be a Part Of It.
The site is ad free, mobile friendly and not indexed by google. It’s also not a hoax, or at least according to its 48-year-old founder and former Minnesota Philharmonic Orchestra conductor James Touchi-Peters. He assured CNN the site was “100% real”.

“I saw a need for an environment where you could talk about the finer things in life without backlash – an environment where people could share similar likes and experiences.”
A Facebook for the financial elite is finally here. For any of you rich folk who are tired of having to connect with us mortals on social media, you now have a support group to voice all of your First World problems.
The social network is called Netropolitan and was launched Tuesday (today!). The company explains on their website that they’re a “global online community for affluent and accomplished individuals worldwide to socialize in a completely private and secure manner.” It doesn’t get more pretentious than that.

All cheap jokes aside, it’s no secret that social media platforms these days are inundated with a gross amount of noise; it’s only getting harder and harder to really form meaningful relationships online and connect with like-minded people. Perhaps founder James Touchi-Peters may be onto something?

The price to join this self-proclaimed “exclusive digital country club” is $9,000 upfront, followed by a $3,000-a-year membership due, so you must have the bankroll if you want to roll with the big boys. Another requirement is that you also need to be at least 21 to join.

We recently had the pleasure of interviewing James Touchi-Peters, where we discussed how he conceived of Netropolitan and what his plans were for his exclusive social network.
