Zoosk, Cupid, Horoscopes, Photos, Video and More on This Week’s Top 20 Facebook Apps by MAU

We have quite the mixed bag of applications on our list of top 20 growing Facebook applications by monthly active users this week. While the Turkish video and dating apps are still going strong, the rest of the list was divided among many other different kinds of applications.

Horoscopes, Q&A quizzes, virtual gifts, photos, Connect, iPad Facebook apps and Page administrator apps were on our list, which grew from between 399,400 and 2.1 million MAU. Our list is compiled using AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook, and covers those that gained the most users in the past seven days.

Sanal Video with 1 million MAU and Komedi Kral with 401,500 MAU each allow viewers to see a list of videos, view, Like and share them. Dating apps Zoosk with 897,600 MAU and Cupid with 597,800 MAU made the list, too. Zoosk grew mostly in the United States, while Cupid grew there, as well as India and the United Kingdom. Cupid’s virality is due in part to a Q&A component asking a user about their friends, posting a story to their Wall upon your answer.

Daily Horoscope made the list with 585,000 MAU; the app grew mostly in Turkey and allows users to receive daily horoscopes on their Wall and share the app with friends who have their same astrological sign. Friend Buzz’s 554,500 MAU is due likely to the viral attribute of the Q&A app, posting a feed story with each answer.

Send Gift with 482,900 MAU first shows users a pop-up window asking them to allow the app to post gifts to their profile with some regularity, but generally allows users to post virtual gifts to friends’ Walls. 60 Photos also involves a user’s friends, with 480,200 MAU the app pulls photos from friends’ Facebook albums, asks you to click “nice” or “pass” and posts a story to your friend’s Wall with each answer.

The friend.ly Connect app grew by 443,900 MAU. The MyPad for iPad Facebook app for iPad grew by 428,200 MAU. Finally, the Page admin apps grew substantially, too. iframe + Static FBML + Welcome Tab = iwipa grew by 630,700 and Welcome Tab for Pages by 399,400 MAU. Each app basically allows Page admins to consolidate social media content onto a tab for their Page.
