Mobile video app Viddy topped our list of the fastest growing Facebook applications by monthly active users this week. There were quite a few video-driven web integrations, too, as well as games, music and professional networking app BranchOut.
Titles on our list gained the most MAU of any apps on the platform, growing from between 400,000 and 4.1 million MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook.

In yet another appearance on our list, Viddy grew by 4.1 million MAU this week. The app is best understood as “Instagram for video.” Users can add filters and effects to short video clips and share them with friends. Viddy integrates Open Graph to share additional activity, such as videos users watch and people they follow. Another mobile video app, Socialcam, gained 750,000 MAU this week.
Then there were a handful of video-driven websites that made the list; these sites tended to employ Open Graph’s heavy sharing techniques on their sites. Dailymotion grew the most by far with 3.9 million MAU. Other sites included the Turkish Siz.net, Metacafe and Younews.in.
Games on the list were led by King.com’s Candy Crush Saga, which significantly outpaced other games this week. Other apps on the list included document sharing site Scribd, Facebook’s latest acquisition Instagram, and the apps for Bing and Pandora.
Finally, professional networking app BranchOut is asking users to heavily recruit users from their different networks, which may have contributed to its growth this week. The app was also in the press after the company secured a new round of funding.
