Facebook and other social media sites are mostly free for everyone to use. But a new social media site promises to limit those who can join to people who are rich. The site is called Netropolitan. Users must pay $9000 to join. This includes a $6,000 entry fee and $3000 for a yearly membership. James Touchi-Peters is the founder of Netropolitan. He is a music composer and orchestra conductor from the eastern American state of New York. He says he believes there is a need for his service. He says he had trouble finding people like him on social media sites. He says Netropolitan is a place where rich people can talk about what he calls “the finer things in life.” In his words, “Netropolitan is an online country club focused on connecting members around the world.” He says it is “for people with more money than time.” Unlike Facebook, everything on Netropolitan is private. The site is not included—or indexed—by search engines like Google or Bing. Non-members can only see the log-in screen when they visit the site. Information to and from the site is protected, or encrypted. This gives members even more privacy. Netropolitan does not have any advertising. It will employ observers to prevent bad behavior. Members must be over 21 years of age. They also must use their real names and addresses to register. Once registered, members can create groups and join discussions on the site. Mr. Touchi-Peters has not said how many members the site has. He has also promised never to release the identity of members to protect their privacy.
