We are nearing the one-month marker since the official release of The Sims Social. The Electronic Arts hit creation showed absolutely no signs of slowing down anytime soon as it led the pack once again — and squashed its previous weekly growth total — increasing by 12,967,511 gamers.

Unfortunately for this slightly peculiar Welcome Tab that links to The Sims, the 1,348,045 users heading toward the app were only good enough for a decreasing fifth-place finish.

Social Point’s fastest growing competitor, Social Empires, held steady; 895,180 new players put it in eighth place once again.

Zynga was behind two different options placing this time. While its dwindling daily numbers may hinder its future success, Pioneer Trail‘s weekly growth total of 718,699 placed it in 12th. Slowly advancing to 17th after its launch earlier in the month, take to the jungle with 547,169 outdoorsy types in Adventure World.

Electronic Arts didn’t see similar success for its gaming option, with Zuma Blitz finishing in 14th. Dropping by a large margin, the application settled for the second half of the countdown after weekly growth of 671,044.

Continuing its slow downfall, Wooga’s Diamond Dash lost ground yet again. Lingering two spots below, in 19th now, 487,871 new adders helped it hang on for another seven days.

Daters, Friends, & Classmates

Taking positive strides forward, it seems that rating photos and mingling with fellow, hopefully single, Facebookers had a hit week approaching the start of autumn. TopFace leaped 13 spots forward to become our No. 2 contender by amassing 3,954,477 new daters.

Students can now connect on projects with fellow classmates using SchoolFeed; 715,240 people placed the newcomer in the 13th position.

Looking to keep the birthdays of those close to you in order? MyCalendar – Birthdays is currently the popular choice in 15th place, with 662,664 organizers keeping the once-popular trend alive.

Page-Creation Tools

Making a notable return in third by tallying a tabs built and viewed total of 3,524,884, Static HTML: iframe tabs once again led the page-creation trend.

Static Iframe Tab — developed by Woobox — moved one position backward to sixth, nabbing a 1,332,619 weekly growth increase. The opposite pattern occured for IWipa, as the tool jumped three spots to seventh, managing a 895,180 seven-day total.

The obvious goal for page administrators is to find ways to engage a growing audience. First time appearer Static HTML… [Third Tab] was one example, found in ninth and amassing a 856,629 weekly growth finish. Not far back, Static HTML… [Second Tab] witnessed a 750,209-add, ninth-place week. Static IFRAME Tab : ThumbsUp Icon rounded out the countdown by seeing a progression of 485,688.

Just For Fun

Although I still question its layout, a 11,448,606-addition comeback served to prove me wrong. In the fourth position, 60photos made a thunderous return. A similar alternative way to look through the photos of those close to you on the social network is Friends Photos; 787,715 adds dropped it into 10th.

Another newbie found after garnering a 622,608-addition increase — a 16th-place entry — is Your Funny Apps. Be aware of this clause in the Request for Permission screen, “Your Funny Apps may post status messages, notes, photos, and videos on my behalf.”

We close with VideoPro, and 534,128 new viewers of the video clips landed it in 18th for the first time.
