Rich and looking for an online destination to socialize privately with other rich people? The Netropolitan Club might be the answer. It's a new fee-based social network for "people with more money than time," according to the site.
The cost is $9,000 to join and $3,000 annually thereafter. Members get a site that promises to never sell their data and to remain ad-free. Plus, the added bonus of no interference from "the 99 percent that clutter up the rest of social media," said author Mark Ellwood.
Ellwood, who appears on CNBC's "The Filthy Rich Guide," can't understand why anyone would pay for social media when so many already established sites cost nothing.
"What I don't understand is why you wouldn't just do like the rest of us and purge your friend's list?" he said.
