You know Facebook is getting crowded when you can’t talk about yachts, private jets and caviar without someone from the 99% chiming in with their opinion about your excessive transportation and eating habits! A new social network named “Netropolitan” has sprung up hoping to distance itself from the 99% and serve only the 1% through a social network that costs $9,000 to join for the first year and $3,000 annually thereafter. It will be interesting to see how this type of social network takes off and whether it actually ends up being any different from the common people’s social options. Then again – “amazing” selfies and useless personal updates permeate all social classes. www.netropolitan.info
