Dropbox, videos, Soul Crash, Pose, Digg, hi5, more on this week’s top 20 emerging Facebook apps by MAU

Dropbox topped our list of emerging Facebook applications by monthly active users this week after the app started giving bonus storage space to people who refer friends to use it. Then a few video apps, games led by Soul Crash, mobile fashion app Pose, Digg’s Timeline app, hi5 and a few other apps rounded out our list.

This week’s top apps grew from between 100,000 and 280,000 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.

Document sharing service Dropbox announced on its Facebook page and blog that users could earn extra storage space by inviting friends to use it. A pair of video apps, Turkish website Siz.net and Facebook canvas app Social Video, followed. Then about half the list was made up of games, led by Soul Crash.

Friend Hug allows users to send virtual gifts to each other, posting to the feed. ปฏิทินของฉัน is a calendar app asking users to invite their friends to make said calendar and Daily Mood publishes feed stories of a user’s mood or that of their friends.

Pose, the mobile photo fashion sharing app, saw its Timeline app grow in popularity. A number of celebrities, including Rachel Zoe, have been using the app and allowing their public subscribers to see their activity. Then there was Digg’s Timeline app, which functions like a social news reader. Finally, hi5 made our list for the second week in a row. The company was recently acquired by Tagged, and has incorporated Facebook logins, according to a company representative.

All data in this post comes from our traffic tracking service, AppData. Stay tuned next week for our look at the top weekly gainers by monthly active users on Monday, the top weekly gainers by daily active users on Wednesday, and the top emerging apps on Friday.
