King now makes three of the top 5 Facebook apps, according to statistics from AppData.
Farm Heroes Saga passed up TripAdvisor in our monthly leaderboard, meaning the three most popular Facebook apps, in terms of monthly active users (MAU), are all made by King.

Facebook continues to be the login of choice for many mobile app users, according to a blog post from the company.
It seems that people who log in with Facebook are more engaged — and spend more money — than those who use alternative sign up methods. Many apps have seen strong results from their Facebook logins.
As the tryptophan from a Thanksgiving feast starts to wear off, many people will start making resolutions to improve their health. There are several fitness Facebook apps that can help people keep track of their diet and exercise, which can lead to a routine.

Facebook mobile app install ads have been a huge help in terms of getting users to discover new apps — but how often do those users return after installing through the ad? A new infographic from app advertising analytics tool Party Track (developed by Adways Interactive) shows that the average mobile app install ad led to a 12 percent higher retention rate, compared to organic.
Though Candy Crush Saga is still all the rage, AppData estimates show that one of the fastest-growing top games belongs to Zynga. FarmVille 2 has gained roughly 500,000 monthly active users (MAU) in the past month, vaulting it back into the top 10 Facebook apps list.
King still has 3 of the top 5 Facebook apps, with Candy Crush Saga, Pet Rescue Saga and Farm Heroes Saga. Pinterest was also a major gainer in the list as it makes its way up the chart.

More and more brands are getting on board with Facebook apps — using them to give away prizes, reward ambassadors, and learn more about their fanbase.
But what else can a Facebook app do? Circus Social put together a very detailed infographic, showing all you’d ever need to know about Facebook apps.
Yahoo is cutting off Facebook integration through its social reader, the Yahoo Social Bar, an app that has declined precipitously in popularity. The company claims that it is sunsetting the Yahoo Social Bar in order to work on more Yahoo-centric features for current users.
The Yahoo Social Bar will no longer be available as of today the company announced.
The Facebook app Microsoft Live has been surging up the charts, growing from No. 8 to No. 5 in terms of monthly active users (MAU), as TripAdvisor, Farm Heroes Saga, Criminal Case and Spotify all lost Facebook users over the past month, according to AppData.
Candy Crush Saga, King’s hit, still remains the overwhelmingly top Facebook app. Pet Rescue Saga, another King game, is the 2nd-most popular Facebook app. See below for the top 25 Facebook apps.
Facebook’s mobile app install ads have been beneficial for both sides, in terms of app discovery, but the company announced a new line of mobile ads to help boost engagement, once a user has already downloaded the app.
This could be huge for both Facebook and app developers, as these new mobile ads will prompt users to play, listen or shop (among other actions) through an app they currently have on their phone. Tapping the prompt button takes them right to the app or game.
So you know that King’s Candy Crush Saga is the top Facebook app (and by a wide margin), but what other apps are popular among Facebook users? King also has the No. 2 Facebook app in Pet Rescue Saga, but many of the most popular Facebook apps aren’t games at all.
Figures from AppData show that many Facebook users also connect with TripAdvisor, Microsoft Live, Bing and Pinterest.
