Rapleaf Identity Breach

How Much Would You Sell Your Identity For?

The Wall Street Journal recently broke news of a company called RapLeaf that was profiting off the Facebook info provided unknowingly by the users of the apps it produces. Some people may feel violated, but others might think it's not that big of a deal. I'm wondering if a firm came up to you and offered you a price for your identity (this includes information about your Facebook ID, email, access to whatever you put up on your social networking profiles) would you sell it? If so, how much would you sell it for?
