It looks like I'm not the only one getting this message.
I did a search on google just now and here are a few links to my results.

This seems like a subliminal message saying Tag You're IT.
TAGURIT
As in COUSIN IT, no paranoia here. This is just what i descern. Best to be aware.

Some of the FB apps are so inane, and they're created, often, by individuals just like you and me. So, in order to get people to sign up and play their apps, they do really weird things. I haven't gotten the email, but believe me, if I got anything saying the president had done anything on facebook, I'd assume it was a flake. He's too darn busy to play around with facebook.

It's like all those ads that say so-and-so has an IQ of 124, how does yours compare. Who cares!?

It's spam.

Facebook has gotten more annoying recently anyway. I guess it's time to scale back my use of it.

Though that David Wilcock fan page is neat and it's interesting to see that he even has any fans outside of here.

I couldn't agree more Alys, who cares and who has the frigging time!!!
As Canta;oupe says, DON'T CLICK ON THAT cr@p. First rule in cyberspace, never click on a mail from an unknown source! View it perhaps, but that's it.
