Facebook's COO Sheryl Sandberg to Harvard Grads: 'Can You Click On an Ad or Two'
By Julia Boorstin, CNBC Correspondent
(She graduated from Harvard back in 1995, when CEO Mark Zuckerberg was 11.)
But as expected she steered clear of any controversial issues -- no talk about the Nasdaq or the stock price. She talked quite a lot about working with CEO Mark Zuckerberg and the premium both of them place on honesty and clear, simple communication.In her closing thoughts of the twenty minute speech she finally referenced Facebook's IPO with a quip: "I wish for your four things, first keep in touch via facebook, this is critical to your future success, and we're public now so can you click on an ad or two when you're there?" The line drew laughs and applause.
