Johannesburg - There’s a new set of ultrarich, jet-setting party animals in the world. In the Rich Kids of Social Media, millennials document every aspect of their fabulous and frequently debauched lives for their millions of followers to envy and enjoy.

There’s Emir in Turkey, heir to a property empire, who considers himself the country’s closest thing to royalty.

In the US, Timothy charters flights around the world to stave off the boredom of not having to work. In the UK, 16-year-old Adil likes to pick up his friends for the trip to school in his chauffeured Bentley.

It’s a different world when you’re young, loaded and the focus of millions of people’s attention.
