Facebook games are highly addictive, in case you don’t already know. So beware! This is my second installment on the top Facebook games. I compiled a list of the top 5 Facebook games for October 1 2013 ranked by the ratio of estimated Daily Active Users (DAU_ESTIMATE) to estimated Monthly Active Users (MAU_ESTIMATE). MAU and DAU are Facebook’s public metrics for measuring the number of unique users for the past 30 days and part day respectively of a particular app. Do enjoy this month’s list of top Facebook games.
Top 5 Facebook games
App name (DAU_ESTIMATE_PER_MAU_ESTIMATE)
1. Candy Crush Saga
2. Pet Rescue Saga
3. Criminal Case
4. Dragon City
5. Farm Heroes Saga
Games on Facebook
Once again King is responsible for three of the top five games on Facebook this month. Candy Crush Saga and Pet Rescue Saga are holding steady at number one and two on the list. Farm Heroes Saga has dropped from number three to five, most likely as it was newer last month. Number three on the list, Criminal Case is owned by Pretty Simple and is up from fourth in September. Dragon City by Social Point, is now up the position four from five last month.
Although we are only reporting on the top five Facebook games this month, it is likely that some of the top games from last month are still ranking well. Based upon MAU for all Facebook apps, 21 Questions, from the company of the same name, is likely still in the top 10. Diamond Dash from Wooga is also likely still ranked. AppData changed what information is provided publicly since the last report here. More detail is only available to paid subscribers of their service.
