One of the more unusual applications on our list of those emerging by monthly active users this week was an app that lets you view the trailer for the next installment of the “Twilight series. Then there was the Spanish language Halloween dress-up app, other than that it was a pretty mixed bag, plus a bunch of Page tab-type applications, including some from Offerpop and North Social.
The apps on our list grew from between 55,7000 and 430,300 MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook. We define emerging applications as those that ended with between 100,000 and 1 million MAU in the past week.
