I consult on both Facebook for companies and google placement. I also run some websites that use Google's adsense as part of the monetization. People do click on Google ads. Not me, and not a lot of the people that I spend time with, but the checks I've gotten say that people click on the ads. |
I've found limited success for my clients from Facebook ads. Google ads your usually searching for an item, and the related ads are returned with the results so they are semi-targeted for what your looking for at that time. People logging into Facebook are usually looking for what they're contacts are up to and suffer from ad-blindness. I have had success with companies utilizing Facebook's Fan Page but that's not monetized by Facebook.
One thing I've noticed in 10 years of working on the web is that most people online are morons. I'm assuming the typical person viewing this site has some level of intelligence which may be why some here don't understand how people would put their lives online and click on ads.
(Disclaimer: I personally use facebook so my mother can see pictures of places I go which avoids the phone calls asking if I'm alive )
