As Facebook has updated its method for counting active users in applications, it’s also started rounding total number of users. This creates a bit of confusion on our rankings as many games will tie in total number of users gained — the metric by which we normally rank this list. In the interest of transparency to our readers, we’re looking into updating our rankings system in various ways to produce meaningful analysis of weekly growth. One example of a possible change we are considering is reordering our rankings by total growth percentage as opposed to total number of users gained.
If any of our readers have suggestions or strong opinions on these weekly rankings posts, please leave your thoughts in the comments.
