And what about people who are totally sick of seeing "FOLLOW US ON TWITTER/FACEBOOK!!!!" buttons plastered all over every website they visit? They make me take the website's owner a lot less seriously than I otherwise would.

Pay Per Click

Anyway you look at it, advertisers are facing a difficult task turning Facebook ads in to sales. How long does it take an advertiser to get 1,000,000 million views? I know millions and millions of people log on to facebook every day and spend a lot of time there, but can that be reached in a day? week? month? I'm guessing that varies greatly depending on the ppc budget, but it seems like an uphill climb with those kinds of conversion rates.
