Which would you like more: your Facebook account or some cold, hard cash? A 14-year-old in Massachusetts went with the latter! Rachel Baier agreed to receive $200 from her dad in exchange for deactivating her Facebook account from now until the rest of the school year, which is about five months. In fact, the whole thing was her idea!

"She approached me. She has been frustrated she hasn't been able to find a babysitting job and she has been looking for ways to get cash," Paul Baier told ABC News. "So she asked, 'If I didn't use Facebook for so long would you pay me?'" The father apparently agreed, knowing that she spent hours on the social networking site when she could be doing more productive things.

This quirky news leads us to a similar inquiry: Would you quit Facebook if someone gave you money to do so?

    Nah, 200 bucks go away quickly.I need Facebook to keep in contact with friends.Perhaps If they offered me more money, I could think of a new way to stay in touch with my friends.

    Actually $200 is too low for me. Maybe a few thousand would do it. If I went back on in a few years would I have to pay the money back?

    Hell yes, I do not use it anyways. When I see the phrase: How are you in the textbox, I always want to reply: :"Bored, that's why I'm here" Fortunately I never have been that bored yet. I go on Facebook out of necessity, mothin more, nothing less, and never post

    If I had been able to foretell the future, I would have paid any amount of money to keep a friend from joining Facebook and ultimately hooking up with a gold-digging peroxide floozy skank who was just out there trolling for a nice-guy mark like him. Facebook is evil.

    FB saves me more than that in phone bills and aggravation every year.

    Add a few zeroes to that amount, and then we're talking.

    Lol I quit it for free... facebook is so stupid. All ur doing is posting everything you do....giving the government that much help spying on you is stupid. I made a facebook once I realized what its all about... I went ahead and erased it. I like my privacy.

    I quit Facebook then join one of the many other identical social network sites. Legal loophole for the win.

    I wouldn't quit facebook because it's how i can keep in touch with my friends and family. especially i can keep in touch with my best friend who recently moved, so I wouldn't give up my friendship with her for money. Also i wouldn't quit it for money

    $200 is nothing with the devalued fiat currency we call the US dollar. However, Facebook is a way of NSA spying on us so yes, I'd deactivate it.
