When it comes to figuring out why these particular apps are growing, it seems that Bing may be growing due to increasing social searches, while Pandora and Skype seem to be focusing more on their social integrations. Plus, these are just generally popular sites.

Dating apps on our list this week, Are YOU Interested? with 417,400 DAU in the United States, United Kingdom and India whereas Zoosk did most of its growth of 168,000 mostly just in the US.

Rounding out the list was Phrases, still not available in the US despite 314,800 DAU growth. 21 questions grew by 219,300 DAU and posts the answers to silly quiz questions on the Walls of a user or their friends. Welcome Tab is a Page tab app that grew by 190,800 DAU. Status Shuffle grew by 178,700 DAU and allow users to Like, edit, share and publish different status updates to their news feed.

Finally there was WhoIsNear?, with 169,700 DAU. The Facebook app is like a location app on the Facebook platform, allowing users to check in geographically with what they’re doing, find new friends, publish their whereabouts to the stream.
