USD 200 To Quit FaceBook For 5 Months


To ensure fulfillment (sic) of the signed agreement, the elder Baier has access to the high schooler's Facebook account and can change the password to avoid reactivation. Given that this was the 14-year-old's idea in the first place, that shouldn't be a problem.


Not a bad idea.

Of course there are several workarounds (creating a new FaceBook Account isn't really THAT difficult), but let us not spoil this.

$200 is too less to stop what for some people is their only social interaction!

Now, if you would up the stakes... ;)

I doubt this is negotiable.

I wasn't talking about that kid's agreement! :D

L o r d R a j said...

Me neither.

Guess Facebook wins then! :D

Just wish people (i.e. FaceBook users) would realize that FaceBook 'winning' just makes them 'lose'.

Like I said... The only social interaction for some people. Now, that could be so for a lot of reasons, some are straightforward like the non-availability of friends in one's geographical vicinity or the need to expand one's circle of contacts beyond geographical limitations (say for business opportunities). I find that social-media is not really the ugly demon it is so often made out to be.

Depends on the utilization.

Yes... Of course... All tools are only as bad as how they are used. :)
