Angry Birds wings to the top of this week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games by MAU

Rovio’s Angry Birds dominates this week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games, based on monthly active users. No surprise here, given that the game officially launched just a few weeks ago.

Six of the games on this week’s chart saw gains higher than 15 percent. Aside from Angry Birds, the most rapidly growing games include Fruit Ninja Frenzy, Izlesene, Marvel: Avengers Alliance, Zynga Slingo, Hoop De Loop Saga and New In Town. The presence of a movie tie-in may seem strange, but Marvel: Avengers Alliance got a big publicity boost last week when the trailer for The Avengers  was released.
