Top 10 Facebook Applications For January 11, 2010
Our Top 10 list adjusts a little this week to allow for the addition of an older application, recently added to the metrics group we use to track usage each week. iHeart, which has been an extremely popular application on Facebook for some time now, jumps onto our list in the #3 spot.
The addition of iHeart bumps some regulars such as Pet Society off the list week, as it continues to face stiff competition from the ever rising newer PetVille game, developed by Zynga. Interestingly though, FarmVille, Cafe World and Mafia Wars have all been experiencing user decline over the past few weeks. Mafia Wars alone has lost almost 5 million players in the last 6 weeks.
Here is this weeks list:
Topping our Top 10 Gainers list for the week is . It’s a time-sensitive game allowing you to pillow fight with your friends, crushes, affair, love or enemies. The winner is declared within two days if the opponent fails to hit you back.
Next is a newer game called , that seems to be a cross between Happy Island and FarmVille. You get to farm on an island, grow pineapple or sugacaner to please the Tiki Spirits, and yes, even wear grass skirts!
Rounding out the top 3 gainers is an application sure to appeal to the younger crowd – . This app allows you to draw on the photos of your friends. Could be fun!
As predicted last week, appears on this weeks list as well.

I noticed a visible absence of a shopping application on your top listings here so figured I’d chime in and share one that I use on Facebook called the Wishlist (http://www.sortprice.com/facebook_wishlist/). It works like a gift registry–you add products that you like and your FB friends can comment on them and/or like them, etc. Works really well if you have a birthday coming up and people keep asking you what you want. Just make a list and share it with them and you’re done.
The Wishlist also gives away $100 a month to the most active users on its application. So if you like to shop online and want to win free stuff, check it out!
Thanks for sharing Daniel. We will definitely take a closer look at it
