So-called ‘Likejacking’ scams use a technique known as clickjacking to spread between users’ Facebook accounts.
The trick begins when a user sees that a friend on the site has ‘Liked’ a Facebook page.
(All images in this post is taken from my Norwegian Facebook page, so my translations on some of the menus could be off.)
If they click to see what it is they are taken to the Likejacking page.
In this case the ‘PLAY’ button is in reality a ‘LIKE’ button for the Likejacking page.
If you click ‘PLAY’ you will be likejacked !
This page uses an invisible page overlay that, if clicked, performs the same action as the ‘Like’ button on a Facebook fan page.
The page then appears in that user’s ‘interests’, and posts the same message on their own Facebook page in an attempt to entice other users.
The scam is also spreading via pages that claim to show a «shocking» or » distubing» image or video.
How to clean up after being Likejacked:
First off, clikk the X on the right of your post and click ‘Remove post and mark as Unlike’.
Then go to Profile -> Info -> Activities an interests -> Click ‘Edit’ -> Show other pages -> Click ‘Remove Page’ on all pages you do not want here.

Now you should hopefully be rid of the Likejackingen for this time…
Remember.. Not everyone on the net is nice…
