Facebook ads click trough rate (CTR):
According to Wikipedia Facebook’s Sarah Smith, who was Facebook’s Online Sales Operations Manager, reports that successful advertising campaigns on the site can have click through rates as low as 0.05% to 0.04%, and that CTR for ads tend to fall within two weeks. The cause of Facebook’s low CTR has been attributed to younger users enabling ad blocking software and being better at ignoring advertising messages, as well as the site being used more for the purpose of social communication as opposed to viewing content.
