For Jon Morter and his 700,000 avid followers, (and counting) of the Facebook page, ‘Rage Against the Machine for Christmas no.1′ it has been an exciting couple of weeks. However last night concerns were raised when Facebook’s most popular campaign page disappeared.
Ringleader, Jon Morter was concerned that the page had been shut down in a bid to halt the masses from buying Rage Against the Machine – Killing in the name.
The page went down last night (13th December), and had been inaccessible today, the day in which Morter’s minions intended to storm the charts by purchasing the 1993 hit.
Speaking to theglobalhearld.com Morter said,
“The group went down last night in which a member of Facebook’s PR team contacted to say it was a ‘bug’,” he continued, “Later in the evening the group returned as normal, but now it’s gone yet again I do start to be concerned.”
Jon’s main concern was that charitable contributions to Shelter had substantially slowed. Members of the group have so far raised in excess of £20,000 for the charity.
In a panic a back-up page was launched while Morter awaited another response from the powers that be at Facebook. However, tonight it would appear that all is well on the camp Rage side as the page is once again functioning as normal.
The track is available to download from various websites including, HMV.com, iTunes, amazon, Play.com and Tesco Digital – and looks to be giving Mr. Mclederry a run for his money currently sitting proudly at number 1 in the HMV download charts, while Joe McElderry sits patiently at number 3. Rage also reside the top spot in Amazon’s top downloads as well as number 1 on play.com. However bookies favourite Joe, currently retains the number 1 position on itunes.
