Recession? What recession?
The members of Total Prestige, an exclusive social network catering to only the rich, do not have to worry about such things.
The 15-year-old organization used to just be a Rolodex with 50,000 names — a sort of offline LinkedIn of the Rich and Famous doing introductions in all the non-digital ways. But it’s now catching up with technology and taking on an online presence with a social network that launched in September, with plans also for a global rollout of quarterly print magazines in some glittering world capitals.
There are currently around 637 members on the site, and an additional 400 high-profile people have decided against creating a public profile but can still view all the content. Ten members are billionaires. Most of them come from Europe and the Middle East, and range from royalty and entrepreneurs to entertainers.
Now don’t expect these folks to be sending each other silly quizzes and such like, the whole thrust is obviously going to be about mixing with the rich and famous and adding more gazzilions to their already stuffed bank accounts.
For a “prestige” site, I am shocked it is built on the ning platform.
Even so … anyone got an invite? ;)
