Yahoo! and Yahoo! Social Bar were both very popular, growing by almost 2 million DAU. Social Bar is Yahoo’s Open Graph news reader, whereas Yahoo is simply Facebook login for the main site and other services. Website integrations from Metacafe, Siz.net and Terra have been on our lists frequently. These apps tend to leverage Open Graph sharing techniques. Music apps Pandora and Spotify grew by the same amount, 300,000 DAU, as did the most popular game on our list, Bubble Witch Saga.

A popular app for creating customized birthday calendars of your friends, Birthday Calendar, grew considerably. Mobile video app Socialcam grew by more than 1 million DAU. The Microsoft Live login app was popular, along with Bing’s search integration. The rest of the list included a horoscope app, school networking app, dating app, and professional networking tool, BranchOut.
