Mafia Wars 2, Bubble Witch Saga Top This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Games by MAU

We’re back with our weekly rankings this week and it’s Mafia Wars 2 at the top the list for fastest-growing games by monthly active users. Bubble Witch Saga and Happy Elements’ 開心水族箱 (the Chinese language version of My Fishbowl) round out the top three.

Thanks to an October 14 update from Facebook on how active users are counted, we suspended rankings posts for a week while the numbers adjusted. A great deal of games appeared to drop dramatically in monthly active users (see Social Empires chart below), but we found that many of the newer games to Facebook seen here on this week’s list were not affected.
