Topping our list of emerging applications by monthly active users this week was Etsy, the e-commerce site for vintage and handmade items. There was no common theme among the rest of the apps on our list this week, but a few marketing campaign apps grew enough to be featured here.
We define emerging applications as those that ended with between 100,000 and 1 million MAU in the past week. This week’s top apps grew from between 20,000 and 220,000 MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook.
