Page tools dominate on this week’s top 20 growing Facebook apps by MAU

Page tab applications dominated our list of apps that grew by monthly active users this week, which is to say most of the apps on our list grew because of page admins. Facebook has begun to promote page creation in the upper right-hand corner every time users visit a page.

The titles on our list gained the most MAU of any apps on the platform, growing from between 900,000 and 13.7 million MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook.
