      Nothing will happen to your account if you share it.

      Sharing only helps spread this scam to other Facebook users.

    There's no Facebook application used by these "Share To Watch" websites so the only way they are able to post to profiles is by the users doing it themselves. It's not malicious or anything of the sort. The user chooses to do it and if they don't want to, they can leave. I don't know, I think it's a pretty creative form of marketing.
