So basically I was browsing FB and clicked on a news-feed link, it brought me here: http://newtraill.blogspot.com/

Even though I knew it was a fake video I clicked on it. I was wondering if someone experiences in web development could take a look and tell me what happens. From viewing the source it looks like it has something to do with making money from random people such as me clicking on it.

???

Not sure if it's harmful or not but I'd like to know if did anything FB related. Thanks.

Basically a newsfeed link is just something that is posted without any sort of block by the user. (Or by a worm or bot of some kind to infect others, or simply get some mediocre traffic)

From the looks of it, actually clicking the "video" would add that URL to your Facebook wall, thus continuing it's traffic stream.

As far as being harmful, no I don't think so, unless you consider spam on your Facebook wall to be harmful.

If you're worried it posted on yours just check your own wall by clicking your name in the top left.
