Social networks – Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter among others – have become the preferred method of communication mainly for poor people. Why should rich people mixed with us mere mortals, when can have their own highly exclusive and invitation only network, where their net worth is guaranteed to outrank their number of friends. Affluence.org is their new Facebook, which has very promising slogan “Make Life Better”. Its aim is not only to provide its users with an elite community, but one with a moral compass.
If you want to be a part of this elite, you’ll need to have a net worth of at least $1 million or make $200,000 a year (and FYI, the average member has a net worth of $32.7 million). if you have rich friends that are already members, they can invite you (but remember, you need five invite to pass “the test” and “sneak” inside). As the CEO Scott Mitchell announced, only 1 out of 40 applicants are eligible to become members.
If you’re lucky enough to get this membership, you’ll be able to promote your charities of choice as well as gain access to events, city guides, and a user marketplace. Other benefits include a 24-hour concierge and assistance service, exclusive product discounts, party invites, and a complimentary subscription to Affluence print magazine.
Rich people will be proud member of Affluence, and we can only conclude that their slogan “Make Life Better” is more appropriate for us.
