Amazon Sweepstakes came in at No. 2 as the e-commerce company has been promoting a chance to win a $25,000 gift card.

A number of customizable tab applications like No. 3 Static HTML… [Ninth Tab], No. 4 Sweepstakes and No. 13 Woobox Custom Tab | Arrow #4 continue to see growth.

No. 15 My Local Walmart saw 62 percent gain this week, possibly related to news this week about the low engagement on the retail giant’s local store pages. Perhaps readers decided to search for their own local Walmart pages after reading these stories.

No. 16 was Fab, a design-focused e-commerce site, which has been running Facebook mobile app ads to get new users.
