CastleVille Conquers This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Facebook Games by DAU

CastleVille comes out on top of this week’s list of fastest growing Facebook games by daily active users with a staggering 5 million+ DAU in roughly its first week.

There’s a bit of confusion around just how fast the game is really growing, with Zynga telling us that Facebook is as many as three days behind in updating its traffic counts for apps. According to the developer, CastleVille officially broke the 5 million DAU mark in just six days, which would have been on Sunday, November 20th. Zynga has not provided an up-to-date monthly active user figure — but our AppData traffic tracking service indicates it would have been 9 million, assuming today’s DAU count is actually from Sunday.
