The Sims Social maintains its lead as the fastest growing game on Facebook, approaching a significant milestone.

Gamasutra‘s regular check up on the Facebook gaming scene has The Sims Social brushing the 30 million monthly average user mark just over a month after going into beta and three weeks after launch.

Around 7.5 million new players joined up in the last week.

EA’s spin-off is keeping ahead of Facebook favourites The Smurfs & Co and Farmville, both of which remain determinedly at second and third positions on the growth chart respectively.
