According to Reuters, she finished off her speech by saying: "We're public now, so could you please click on an ad or two while you're there."

lol.

Well no harm in just clicking an ad if it means supporting facebook right? Without it there would be a lot of people I wouldn't have found.

*clicks ad*

Never will I be a part of Facebook. Good luck with the lawsuits. Should have kept it privately owned, maybe?

I always get frustrated with people that use Adblock and such. Ads, when done right, are not that intrusive and they give us some amazing services for free. Facebook, YouTube, Google, etc. would not be free without ad support, so blocking their ads is a bit lame in my opinion.

That being said, telling people to click your ads is stupid. If nobody is clicking your ads, there are things you can do to increase clicks other than begging.
