Page Tabs, Mobile, Spotify, Scribd, Halloween and More on This Week’s Top 20 Growing Facebook Apps by MAU

Page tab applications lead the way for growth on our list of the fastest growing by monthly active users this week. Note that on 14 October Facebook changed the way it calculates active users, resulting in a one-time decline in stats for many apps. Samsung and Nokia apps were on our list, as well as Spotify, Scribed and a Halloween costume app. The titles on our list gained the most MAU of any apps on the platform, growing from between 137,600 and 721,400 MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook.
