60photos, if you recall, is an app that induces virality by using photos and asking users to rate them either “nice” or “pass.” Every “nice” rating is posted to the Wall of whoever’s photo it is; the app grew by 3.6 million MAU this week. MyCalendar, which allows users to create their own customized birthday calendars, grew by 1.8 MAU.
Quiz app 21 questions grew by 1.5 million MAU, and a similar app, Friend Buzz, grew by 1.2 million MAU. Both apps allow users to answer questions about their friends, posting answers to their Walls. Socialbox, a chat app download, grew by 472,900 MAU and Between You and Me is also a quiz app that publishes answers to questions to the Walls of a user’s friends with 344,600 MAU this week.
