The Ville once again on top of this week’s fastest-growing Facebook games by MAU

Author’s note: Zynga’s “Ville” games are still topping our gainer lists due to a spike in daily active users from the weekend of August 5, which was due to a bug on Facebook’s part. We’re in the process of addressing this issue with our AppData traffic tracking service and should have it resolved in time for our list of fastest-growing Facebook games by DAU on Wednesday.

Zynga’s The Ville continues to dominate our list of fastest-growing Facebook games by monthly active users, taking the top spot this week with 9.3 million MAU for a 20 percent gain.

CityVille came in at No. 2 with 4.6 million MAU, a 14 percent gain. FarmVille, in turn, took the No. 3 spot with 3.8 million for a 10 percent gain. FreshPlanet’s SongPop placed at No. 4 with 1.4 million MAU, up 12 percent. Finally, EA’s SimCity Social was up by 1.1 million MAU, an 8 percent gain that let it take the NO. 5 spot.

Three games this week showed traffic increases greater than 50 percent. LIFO Interactive’s Olympic Games City took in 320,000 MAU, a 60 percent gain. NGames Limited’s Pockie Ninja II Social was up by 51 percent with 230,000 MAU. Another FreshPlanet game, Dreamland, was up by 160,000 MAU for a 59 percent increase.
