There is a scam spreading on Facebook that creates fake likes. The post is entitled 'This girl killed herself live on WEBCAM! [VIDEO]' and the link leads to olivezen.net and survey scams.

The scam spreads like wildfire via faked likes that appear on users' Timelines. The text reads:
"This girl killed herself live on WEBCAM! [VIDEO]
Girl killed herself live on webcam after a post on her facebook wall!".
Facebook scam "This girl killed herself live on WEBCAM! [VIDEO]" scam, example post on News Feed Facebook scam "This girl killed herself live on WEBCAM! [VIDEO]" scam, example post on Timeline

Clicking the link leads to a page at olivezen.net that tries to look like a YouTube video embedded on a normal Facebook page. The page also generates a fake like and posts it on clickers' Timelines. That's how the scam spreads.

The whole page is a link that either leads to another fake video page hosted at s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com by some yolotrk, or opens a survey scam. This fake video page looks almost the same and is just a link to a real YouTube video entitled "R.I.P Amanda Todd [Bullying + Suicide]".
Survey scams, of course, try to fool victims into signing up for paid SMS services.
