Messages like these, claiming to show video of a girl/woman doing something outrageous publicly, have been circulating on Facebook since couple of years. They come with attractive pictures of women showing their posterior, luring the users to click on the link/video. These picture and video messages are simply hoax and in fact scams.
The users who clicked on these links did not see any such videos or pictures, they were actually taken to another web page, with a hidden script that automatically makes them like the page and also advertise the fact on Facebook. This way more people click on it and that is how it goes on spreading virally. This is a click-jacking Facebook scam meant for generating likes to a page and then make it viral. In some cases, as the old practice of scammers is, to view the videos, users will be tricked into completing online surveys and can also steal their personal information. A similar scam circulated on Facebook in the past, claiming to show a Video saying Chuck Norris died at the age of 71.
It is to be noted that there will be numerous sites like this intended for Facebook like-jacking scams. These scammers will come up again and again with variety of topics to lure the users. So one should always be careful about what they click on Facebook and not get carried away by pictures and videos like this. One way to identify if any of such messages are Facebook like-jacking scams is to place your mouse on the image/video, and look for some parameters like ” fb:like action=’like‘ ” etc. in the destination URL showing up at the bottom of your page.
