The Price Is Right Slots, which was released on Feb. 29, grew the most on our list this week. (Read our review on sister site, Inside Social Games.) Turkish video website Siz.net has seen more users connect with Facebook lately, as did Social Video, a canvas app that allows users to see different videos.
Pose, a mobile app for sharing and tagging photos of fashion items, saw its Timeline app grow. Celebrities like Rachel Zoe and Coco Rocha have given the app a boost by sharing their “poses” with subscribers on Facebook.
American Express’s popular promotion Amex: Link, Like, Love got a new surge in users, possibly from advertising. The promotion gives cardmembers deals based on their likes, interests and social connections on Facebook.
Mobile voice messaging app HeyTell launched Facebook login a few weeks ago and has seen steady growth since then. Closing out the list was hi5, a social network that lets people sign in with their Facebook account and find new friends.
