Mikhail Prokhorov: Snob

Amy sends along this real story from the Moscow Times, not the Onion:

"If you don't like mingling with the rabble on Facebook or Odnoklassniki, billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov [Russia's fifth-richest person] feels your pain. Upwardly mobile Russians will soon be able to enjoy Snob, a social networking site of their own..."

Prokhorov also plans to launch a magazine with the same name. But he might not have thought this one through completely, since Eternal Remont and all of those Russian millionaires in his target demographic are already subscribers to Lebanon’s Snob Magazine for women.

By the way Prokhorov, Snob is a pejorative.
