Most of the applications on our list of the fastest growing by monthly active users this week created different ways for users to interact with their friends. There were birthday apps that required users to invite friends, a Harry Potter app that published characters to the stream and the profile report card apps that create photos “rating” your friends, publishing a photo and tagging them in the process.
The titles on our list gained the most MAU of any apps on the platform, growing from between 329,000 and 7.8 million MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook.
