Facebook wins: Rage against the machine UK Christmas Number 1

You must have heard of this action, I’m even sure you voted for it. Didn’t you ??
The UK Christmas number 1 is Britain’s most hotly-contested music chart of the year, dominated for the past 4 years by Simon Cowell’s X Factor franchise.
X Factor winner Joe McElderry looked set to take the chart with ease.
But this year was different: web-based groups decided to take action, they created a Facebook page called “Rage against the Machine for Christmas NO.1”.
It reached almost the 1 million fans.
Well last night, the campaign showed how successful it was.
“Killing in the Name sold around 500,000 copies whereas Joe McElderry sold 450,000 copies.
It’s the first UK number one for RATM, and proof that internet campaigns can turn the tables. And sometimes it’s a really good thing !!!
