We wrote about CityVille’s meteoric rise on Monday, and since then the new Zynga game has showed no signs of slowing down. On average, it’s adding around half a million DAU per day.

It’s actually a bit surprising that Merry Christmas to All My Friends is the only app gaining millions of users on the list, considering that Facebook’s Christmas-celebrating population is now in the hundreds of millions; a bit further down, MerRy ChristmaS is doing decently well at number 15. As always, these apps are extremely simple, and likely to only last a week or two.

The remaining apps are those that have been doing well for weeks on end: Badoo, Frases Diarias, Windows Live Messenger and Tarjetitas did best.
