So I stupidly clicked on a suspicious link on a Facebook post today. Guest account for shame. In my defense, it was a link to facebook.com itself, but it loaded a Facebook page, then seemed to redirect. I closed my browser less than a second after. I cleared all local browser data, changed my password, made sure no browser addons or Facebook apps were added, and ran a virus scan. Everything seems okay. Did I miss anything? Reformatting my PC or changing other site passwords is overkill, right? This was in Chrome on Windows 10.
In theory, you could have caught a drive by download. However, it is much more likely that you have been redirected to an advertisement page and the respective owner now rejoices about the revenue of all the sheeps clicking on funny looking links ;-)
You can delete your cookies to get rid of any tracking/advertisement ones and I generally recommend installing a third party script, frame and cookie blocker. Also I hope you are not browsing with an administrator account.
I would suggest you use share me not and Adblocker plugins
The link might be just an AD or also can be clickjacking page or phishing page.
Visiting that link might trigger a download of malicious file( some people put default action as download). Better not to click such links
