This is a "click-jacking" scam. This means there is an underlying code on this webpage that hijacks your Facebook account without your knowledge and posts the scammer's message to your Wall. The following survey scam is also displayed:

what to do if you have clicked on the link:
You need to clean up your Facebook account so that you do not spam the same message that tricked you to your friends. Do this by removing the post from your Newsfeed and mark the post as Spam. Do this by clicking the "x" in the top right hand corner of the post.

Never ever complete surveys to unlock videos or other content on Facebook. Scammers today use these tricks to either spread malware, obtain personal identification/information or earn commissions from advertisings.

Some surveys require you to download files to your computer. Never do this! If you did so by mistake, then run a complete system scan with a good antivirus. The I.Q. Quiz scam is one of those scams which requires you to enter your phone number to receive the results. The scammers then bill you for premium services.Always keep an eye on your phone bill for bogus charges.
