Just to be clear, your facebook cannot technically have a "virus." There are two possible situations. Either you have been "hacked," or you have installed a malicious app accidentally (facebook game or other app). This should have a relatively simple solution.
1. In the case that you have been "hacked," you need to change your password. Really, you probably should do this regardless. When you log into your facebook page, click on the tab in the upper right corner that says "Account." Then click on "account settings." In these options should be one that says "password." To the right right of that should be a link that says "change." You need to click that, and when it gives you the option, enter your old password, and then a new password. You need to then click the button that says "change password." I strongly suggest you make your password a minimum of 8 random characters, preferably 12 or more.
2.To deal with a malicious app or facebook "program" that could be doing the posting (the most likely situation), you need to click on the "account" tab on the upper right corner of your facebook page. Select "privacy settings." On the bottom left should be a link for "apps and settings." Click the "edit" button. Where it says "apps you use" click "edit settings." It might be best to remove any apps that are not officially sanctioned by facebook, and maybe even just remove all of them. To do so, just click the "x" to the right of any of these programs and remove them.
I hope this helps, if I can be of any further assistance, let me know.
