Katy Perry Sends Facebook Live to the Top of This Week’s List of Emerging Facebook Apps

Facebook’s perennially active feed of life at its headquarters, Facebook Live, heads up this week’s AppData list of emerging Facebook apps, or those still under a million monthly active users, with over 400,000 MAU. At least that many people showed up to watch pop star Katy Perry meet Mark Zuckerberg, as well as demo some social networking tech.

Although it may rise, Facebook Live usually falls back down again after whatever event it’s covering is over. It’s followed up by Что твои друзья думают о тебе?, which we first spotted a week ago; in Russian, it’s a simple friend quiz, which posts to users’ walls.

Absent an official iPad app from Facebook, TheFacepad continues to grow (along with rival Friendly for iPad). But its continuing weakness at retaining users suggests that when Facebook does release its own app, it won’t have much trouble taking over the market.

The trend this week in games is board and card titles, but there are a few interesting examples, like Miscrits: World of Adventure, which puts a new spin on the well-known Pokemon-style monster collection genre. We cover the games in a bit more depth this morning over at Inside Social Games.
