Spotify, Photos, Page Tabs, Friend Quizzes and BeKnown on This Week’s Top 20 Growing Facebook Apps by MAU

Facebook’s most recent redesign seems to have pushed photo and music apps to the forefront in our list of applications that grew by the most monthly active users this week.

A handful of photo apps, as well as Spotify, were on our list, in addition to a bunch of friend quiz apps, which may have also received a boost from the redesign. The titles on our list gained the most MAU of any apps on the platform, growing from between 599,600 and 11 million MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook.
