Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and even iTunes have been bombarded by Beliebers and Directioners feuding over which album is better and will sell more copies. In the past couple of days, things have escalated to a whole new level. 

According to Billboard Magazine

"One Direction has a bigger recent fanbase, but Bieber has an actual huge hit single from the album, so he has the comeback momentum going for him. Also, Bieber appears to be pulling off the George Michael/Justin Timberlake gambit, artists who appealed to teen fans crossing over to a slightly more discerning music fanbase. Bieber is pulling a new fan base, but the question is how much new will he get and how much old fans will he pull along."
