14 year old, Rachel Baier, signed a “Facebook Contract” with her parents to give them the rights to deactivate her personal Facebook account.

According to the contract, the teenage girl will receive a total payment of $200 dollars in two parts.

The first payment being in the amount of $50 dollars on April 15, 2013, and the second payment in the amount of $150 dollars on June 26, 2013.

The teenagers’ father, Paul Baier, is hoping that this social experiment will become a popular one that will help society, in the matter of limiting internet access to young teenagers who are all exposed to many threats while being online.

To abide by the contract, Rachel provided her log-in password to her dad, so that he can change it and make sure that she obeys the terms of their agreement.

Rachel has not yet regretted her decision, and also admits that her constant activity in Facebook was distracting her from her other obligations with school.

The contract between Rachel and her parents will end on the last day off school, June 26, 2013, in which then she will be allowed to use and have control of her Facebook account once again.
