Each one of us probably has a friend or knows a friend of a friend who has developed a habit of posting everything—and I mean, EVERYTHING—on their social media accounts. We get an update from what food they are eating, their latest tours and escapades down to their new, flashy toys in our newsfeed. But, while most us are happy to see our friends do well in life, some may feel otherwise.

As some of our friends share their happiness and achievements to the rest of the world, some are struggling with debts and unemployment. Some people are worrying if they’ll even have food to eat today.

Does this make you feel a bit guilty? It is not your fault. That is just the sad truth about life.

However, if you really want a venue where you can post and share your latest, expensive gadgets, or monthly out of the country tours without feeling guilty or sounding boastful, you can sign up with Netropolitan…

“An online country club for people with more money than time.”

During an interview with the Los Angeles times, Michelle Lawless, the messaging specialist at Media Minefield said, “James and others have mentioned feeling judged for talking about certain topics on other social media outlets. Like they were bragging and met with a little ill will.”

James Touchi-Peters is the brainchild of Netropolitan.

Touchi-Peters, an American composer, lyricist, and jazz vocalist among many others, said he wanted “an environment where you could talk about the finer things in life without backlash.

“This is 100 percent real, and I believe there is a need and an audience for this service,” he told CNN.

Netropolitan will cost you $9,000 yearly, which includes an initiation fee of $6,000 and the $3,000 annual fee. But, you have to be 21 years of age to join the circle. Like most social media sites, members can display their profile; send and receive messages; get notifications; share their location; follow friends and tell them what you have been doing. It is a Facebook rip-off, but without the ads.

The promoters of Netropolitan refused to divulge details about their members, but they reassured those who are interested that they can chat with like-minded individuals.

The Netropolitan organizers said, “We simply cannot stress enough how important preserving our members’ privacy is to us. Other than announcing that at our launch we already had several hundred members, we will never publicly state the exact number of members in the club. And especially, we will NEVER release or verify the identity of any of our members – ever.”

The company promises to provide you with unlimited cloud file storage; however, Netropolitan’s perks end here.

“Please understand that Netropolitan is NOT a concierge service. Our Member Service Associates will not book you a charter jet, or find you tickets to a sold-out Broadway show. They exist solely to help members technically navigate and find their way around the social club,” the company said.

Netropolitan is not the first social media site for the rich. Apps and sites like “I Am Rich” and Social1000 have also tried to cater exclusively to the elite.

Brave Couple Gets a Surprise When They Walked Into A Theater Full Of Mean Looking Bikers

What would you do if you were there?

Imagine you're going to the movie house with your significant other, excited to see the latest comedy flick. Armed with a tub of popcorn and tall cups of sodas, you enter the dimly-lit theater with your partner. A quick scan of the theater shows that the people sitting inside the theater - aside from the two of you - are heavily tattooed, big-bodied bikers. What's more, you're shocked to find that the only available seats are those right in the middle of the intimidating-looking bikers. What do you do then?

This was exactly the dilemma of innocent couples who unknowingly participated in a set-up prepared by the people behind Carlsberg Beer, a German beer brand. The team filled Kinepolis Cinema in Brussels with 148 scary-looking gentlemen and deliberately left two unoccupied seats in the midst of the bikers, just to see how the couples would react.
