Money cant buy you friends, but it sure can buy you privacy. Imagine you are a celeb or a public figure, or just loaded with enough buck that doesn’t require you to engage with the lesser mortals. But then, the taste of social networking deprives you of making select friends on the Internet too.
The answer for the rich is here – Netropolitan. A social networking site for the rich which goes with the tagline, ‘The online country club for people with more money than time’. Netropolitan is a global online community for affluent and accomplished individuals worldwide to socialize in a private and secure manner.
The one time joining fee of $9000 gets you the access to create your member profile with subsequent annual fees of $3000 a year.
Netropolitan confirms their service is inaccessible from the public Internet, including search engines and all member transmission is encrypted. Presently the site is also ad-free and they would like to keep it the same. The site offers similar features and functionality as seen by other social networks including – status updates, following members, forums, groups, events, member search and more.
If you’re wondering how the site looks like without shelling out the $9000 fee, below are some screen grabs of the member section
