Last week, we analyzed traffic patterns to determine whether or not The Sims Social stood a chance at unseating CityVille as the largest application on Facebook. A big variable we pointed out is Zynga’s ability to rally CityVille for a traffic spike this month as The Sims Social struggles to keep growth steady if not as rapid as it was in its early days. Thanks to an Enrique Iglesias campaign launched in CityVille last week, it looks as though the game will rally for a bit of growth in October. But as we learned from Lady Gaga’s experience with FarmVille, these integrations are more likely to show temporary lifts instead of long term upticks. We’ll see how things stand going in November.
