RISE ABOVE THE PROLETARIAT
Netropolitan is the Facebook for rich people; the online equivalent of living in a better neighbourhood.
For $9,000 (QR32,700) a year ($6,000 or QR21,840 for initiation and another $3,000 or QR10,920 as annual fee), you can buy yourself premium profile space on Netropolitan, “an online country club for people with more money than time”. With mostly the same features as that available on Facebook ( but with fewer posts about your less fortunate friends' mundane problems), membership comes with online storage space, strict secrecy and an ad-free experience. Founder James Touchi-Peters founded the site to provide patrons “an environment where you could talk about the finer things in life without backlash”.
