Phrases, Friend Quizzes, Photos, Greeting Cards and More on This Week’s Top 20 Emerging Facebook Apps by MAU

The new Phrases topped our list of the fastest growing Facebook applications by monthly active users this week, but since the app is not available to United States users, we couldn’t tell you exactly why. There were then a bunch of friend quiz apps and other apps publishing friendship information to the stream, photo and greeting card apps and a few more in for good measure.

The apps on our list grew from between 209,400 and 707,600 MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook. We define “emerging” applications as those that ended with between 100,000 and 1 million MAU in the past week.
