Farmville 2 is the top app on Facebook

Thursday, 18th October 2012 00:36 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Farmville 2 has nearly 50 million users and is Facebook’s most popular app.

According to AppData, the sequel currently has 48.9 million monthly average users, making it the most used app on Facebook, ahead of fellow Zynga effort Texas Hold’em Poker (38.1 million MAUs) and even Instagram (34.9 million MAUs).

Farmville 2 follows up on the game that made Zynga a household name; the original Farmville once topped out at 80 million MAUs and is still one of the top 20 apps on Facebook with 18.8 million MAUs.

Zyngas has four more entries in the top 20 for a total of seven; Chefville (33.1 million MAUs), Zynga Slingo (28.7 million MAUs), Bubble Safari (28.1 million MAUs) and The Ville (19.6 million MAUs).

Despite these massive player numbers, Zynga’s in a bit a of a slide. Its social gaming revenues have been drying up and it’s been throwing resources at mobile development; its had to lower its expectations on the back of a couple of disappointing quarters, and investors are not pleased at all.

Zynga went public in December 2011 and raised $1 billion, the largest tech IPO since Google. Its $10 shares began a nosedive just days later.

    Not a fan of facebook games other than Song pop as i kick all my friends ass on that.
    But my gf loves some of the games, they had loads on their, who has the biggest brain, bowling, flags game, sweetshop, restaurant city etc. Some of these she had paid extra to play extras. What sickens me is all those games disappeared and was replaced with sims. Those games hadnt been going long either and without warning took them off, some people had put money into them and lost everything.
    This makes me think of cloud gaming in the future, whats to stop one of the companies you choose to buy games with going bust, therefore you could loose your entire collection.
    What if for some reason all those people who love Steam, what if they suddenly just disappeared. I love how cheap they can be and have made a couple of purchases but most the time i play games on my pc is when im bored or my net connection goes which then i can play steam games.
