Dad Offers Teen $200 If He Quits Facebook For Five Months
Yesterday we learned that more and more people are taking long breaks from Facebook. If they're not getting paid for these social network hiatuses they may be doing it wrong.
Rachel Baier is getting the princely sum of $200 for handing her Facebook password over to her father and allowing him to deactivate her account for five months. The terms of the deal are laid out in a Facebook Deactivation Agreement both Rachel and Paul Baier signed.
According to Dad, it was Rachel idea. "She wants to earn money and also finds Facebook a distraction and a waste of time sometimes," he explained.
The contract states she gets 50 bucks on April 15. Then if she can remain off the social network until June 26 she gets the rest of the cash.
One Facebook Deactivation Agreement isn't quite a trend, so we don't think Mark Zuckerberg is quaking in his hoodie just yet. However now that there is a good template for such a transaction, who knows what will happen.
How much dough would you require to leave Facebook for five months?
