An interesting group of applications topped our list of titles that grew by monthly active users this past week. Page tabs, photos, profile “report card” apps, the Spotify app were popular on our list — the new prominence of photos in the news stream, as well as the Spotify notifications from users’ friends, seems to be pushing the growth of these apps.
The titles on our list gained the most MAU of any apps on the platform, growing from between 547,200 and 5 million MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook.
