Fun Run, WhatsApp, Viber, Flickr and more on this week’s emerging Facebook apps

Mobile arcade game Fun Run led our list of emerging Facebook applications by monthly active users this week with 144 percent gain.

We define emerging applications as those that ended with between 100,000 and 1 million MAU in the past week. This week’s top apps grew between 90,000 and 490,000 MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook.

Mobile communication apps WhatsApp and Viber made the list at No. 3 and No. 7, respectively. Photo app Flickr continues to grow,  reaching 400,000 MAU. No. 11 Viddy is back on the rise.

Amazon launched a new sweepstakes “New Year, New You,” which has put its Amazon Sweepstakes at No. 16.

A few Christmas apps, calendar apps and games made up the rest of the list this week.
