FarmVille 2 leads this week’s fastest-growing Facebook games by DAU

Zynga’s cross-promotion powers are at work again, driving FarmVille 2 to the No. 1 spot on this week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games by daily active users with 5,847,012 DAU, a 750 percent gain.

Words With Friends managed to claim the No. 2 spot with 251,801 DAU, a 4 percent increase. Social Point snagged the next two positions on the list: Social Wars took No. 3 with 192,723 DAU for a 33 percent gain and Social Empires came in at No. 4 with its 16 percent gain from 136,083 DAU. Finally, CityVille claimed the No. 5 slot with 101,486 DAU, a 4 percent gain that might have something to do with people picking up a physical copy of CityVille Monopoly and redeeming its in-game cash reward.

Three other games on the list showed growth above 40 percent. IsCool Entertainment’s Wordox snagged 76,963 DAU for an 86 percent traffic increase. Nekki’s free-running platformer Vector is continuing to show steady growth with 24,502 DAU for a 41 percent gain. Finally, King of the Web debuted on our list with 15,416 DAU for a 154 percent gain.
