Come on, give it your best shot! I am sure, though, that even without having to really think, most of you will get the answer correctly. That ubiquitous FarmVille is still the King of Facebook applications – no surprise about that! The real-time simulation game where anyone can pretend to be a farmer has made addicts of countless people around the world. Indeed, there was a point when it was said that the number of Farmville farmers exceeded the number of farmers in the entire United States! Zynga really did hit a goldmine in that app! Furthermore, other popular Zynga games are scattered all over the top 10 most popular Facebook apps list – Texas HoldEm Poker, FrontierVille and Café World.
Here is something that might surprise you, though. Would you believe that the second most popular Facebook application is Microsoft’s instant messenger app, Windows Live Messenger? To be honest, I didn’t even know that there was an app for this, but apparently, since its launch in August, more than 10 million people have connected Facebook to Windows Live. Pretty impressive!
ReadWriteWeb posted the full list of top 10 Facebook apps yesterday:
- Windows Live Messenger
- Texas HoldEm Poker
- Bejeweled Blitz
- Cafe World
- Mafia Wars Game
- Birthday Calendar
- Treasure Isle
Now try “scoring” yourself. How many of these apps do you use on a regular basis? I currently use 1 out of 10, but I have to be honest and say that I used to be a slave to app number 7 and app number 8. And, no, I don’t play FarmVille. 😉
