What Like-Jacking Means.
Like-Jacking is a Facebook-enabled Click-Jacking attack that tricks Facebook users into clicking a hidden “Like Button” on External web pages. Most Facebook users are unaware that a like-jacking has taken place due to the fact the like button is usually hidden behind a fake video play button or some other object on the web page. Users will instinctively click these fake objects thinking they are harmless. Many Facebook users end up leaving the Scam sitting on their wall for days because they never knew it happened. Their friends come along and fall right in to the same trap once they click. AVOID IT. Read and share this with your friends.

Damage Control ( For those who have fell victim. )
If you have fallen victim to this “Like-Jacking” Scam, you need to clean up your facebook profile immediately. You can do this by simply removing the like made to your wall. Remove the like by navigating to your profile wall, locating the like, then clicking on the little “X” at the top right corner of the message. Select “Remove And Unlike” from the menu and the message/Like will be removed. This will ensure that you do not continue to assist the scam artist in spreading his ruse to your friends and even further throughout the facebook network.
