Friend quizzes were big on our list of the top 20 emerging Facebook applications by monthly active users this week. Turkish video apps were also popular, and then there was a random handful of other apps, including BranchOut, photo apps, virtual good apps and more.
The apps on our list grew from between 140,100 and 448,300 MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook. All in all, it was a pretty typical week for the emerging category, which we define as apps that grew between 100,000 and 1 million in the past week.
