So in the last few days I have clicked on a couple of dodgy links. 

One was an interracial porn video someone i know apparently shared, the next day i saw someone else i know apparently share it. o im thinking when people click on it it automatically shares it and the account owner can't see the activity on there page only everyone else can. 

I clicked on it out of curiosity i do not have friends that constantly share porn.

Then I saw someone else giving big long links to a life meaning type / words of wisdom type image. Maybe genuine may not be. I clicked on the link and was taken to the image. I thought the person who wrote it to the other person was a weird situation, do they even know each other? then scrolled down and saw the did a similar thing to someone else. 

It may be legit, and people pranking by liking the interacial porn link, but i am worried there is stuff my account is posting that i can't see

Yeah - you need to change your facebook password ASAP AND run in depth virus scans on your machines, including rootkit scans.

Those click jacking facebook worms that abuse the facebook like platform are pretty common.

Basically they trick you into clicking a button on a third party website by either hiding it or disguising it as something else eg: play button on a video or view larger link... this triggers a facebook like as if you were clicking the facebook like button for real on a normal third party website.... which is how it ends up on your wall.

You can read more about how these work (links below):
