This facebook spam application adds a message to the facebook comment of the infected user, saying I’ve added smileys to this comment. Wanna see them? with a link to some website c.facicons.com

We clicked and went ahead to find what actually happens, after clicking this link. It took us to some website which was asking us to install a smiley toolbar which could enable and add similes to facebook comments.

All this implies that all those users who install this toolbar in the browser are infected by this facebook spam. If any of your friend or you infected by this facebook spam, uninstall this browser toolbar from windows add remove programs or programs and features and things will be fine for you or your facebook friend.
