Don’t believe in the power of social media ? Rage against the machine beat X Factor to christmas number 1, without spending a penny on advertising

Yes you did read that correct ! Rage Against the Machine have taken the Christmas number 1 2009 slot with their track “Killing in the name” and has beaten hot favourite X Facotr 2009 winner, Joe McElderry.

A facebook campaign was launched to stop Simon Cowell buying his way into yet another Christmas Number 1 with his X Factor winner (the last 4 Christmas number ones have been X Factor winners)

Killing in the name sold over 500,000 copies via download this week, and it was the first time in history a download single had reached christmas number 1.

The facebook campaign grew to over 950,00 members, just goes to show the importance and power of social media websites – think about it ;)
