Viddy, Instagram, Pinterest, games, Metacafe, Zoosk, more on this week’s top 20 growing Facebook apps by MAU
Video sharing apps Socialcam and Viddy remained popular on our list of growing Facebook applications by monthly active users this month. Interestingly, Instagram continues to slide down the list after being acquired by Facebook. Websites integrations were also very popular.
Titles on our list gained the most MAU of any apps on the platform, growing from between 570,000 and 19.3 million MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook.

Socialcam grew by 19.3 million MAU and Viddy grew by 13.2 million MAU. These two apps grew far more than almost any other app on the list. Viddy began to gain traction especially after the acquisition of Instagram (it’s known as Instagram for video) and Socialcam’s daily video posts and feed stories make the app ubiquitous. While video apps began to displace photo apps, Instagram and Photo Love still made the list.

There were a series of website integrations that proved to be very popular this week: Metacafe’s Timeline app, comedy site 9GAG, and Turkish integrations Mynet and Younews.in. These apps incorporate different types of sharing, but ultimately result in different feed and Ticker stories.
