Bubble Safari, Wish, social readers, Viddy and more on this week’s top 20 growing Facebook apps by DAU
Zynga’s Bubble Safari had a big week, taking the top spot on our list of fastest growing Facebook applications by daily active users. Earlier this week the game led our list of apps growing by monthly active users, as well.
The titles below grew between 190,000 and 3.9 million DAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering growth for apps on Facebook.
Top Gainers This Week
Wish, which is a Pinterest-like e-commerce site, had a burst of more than 1 million users between Wednesday and today. The site seems to have begun some sort of promotion, though it’s too early to see whether the app will continue to grow or how many of those new users will return.
No. 3 on the list was Terra, a Spanish-language web portal, which has integrated Facebook Open Graph. Other social readers appear to be making a comeback after a drop-off in the past few weeks. Facebook continues to experiment with how it displays Open Graph app stories in News Feed, which can have an effect on an app’s monthly and daily active users. Washington Post Social Reader had a 330,000 increase in DAU, and The Guardian picked up 260,000 DAU.
Mobile video sharing app Viddy had a spike in DAU on Sunday and Tuesday, after Justin Bieber tweeted links to some of his Viddy videos, including one of him singing with his little sister and another of a live performance of his new single.
