    It is generally believed that social networks and smartphone apps are among the few modern benefits that are available to everyone, regardless of wealth and social status. However, some services operate on the basis of exclusivity, and only very well off users can afford using them. Sputnik takes a look at some of them.

    Rich Kids

    Only the really rich can afford a personal profile page on this server, which is quite similar to Instagram. Membership here costs 1,000 euros per month. “If it's too much, it's not for you,” the developers said.

    Luxy

    The Luxy dating app is an elite analogue of Tinder minus the poor people. According to the official website of the service, 41 percent of the “verified” users have an income of more than 1 million dollars per year. “Date with Attractive Millionaires” is their slogan.
