Christmas Music Quotes on Facebook

Back in August this year Facebook introduced an interesting new “posted about” feature. It can be a great tool to find out what’s popular amongst your friends and seems to be a competitor to Google+ and Twitter’s trends. In the last couple of days I’ve noticed that many of my Facebook friends (including radio stations and DJs) have started posting about Christmas music. A sure fire indicator that it’s time to dust off the festive songs and start playing them!
