    Just stumbled across a clickbait ad on Facebook while on my phone that was something along the lines of "These pranks are so bad and mean check them out!" And had the clickable picture/banner link in the post with a picture. However the url that the page showed was cnn.com . Is this just them adding this in the title of the ad/post? or are they actually fooling facebook something. The site is obviously not cnn.

    Not sure if it can be openly posted because I remember a thread being removed to the Jr. VIP section, but it indeed involves javascript combined with OG data.

    Won't work with banned (CPA) domains though - FB will ban your intermediate domain as well. To circumvent this you'll need a server-side solution and that's all I will say about it.
