1. CastleVille Beats CityVille as Zynga's Fastest Growing Facebook Game


CastleVille Beats CityVille

Zynga said that CastleVille broke 5 million daily active users over the weekend, putting it ahead of CityVille's record for 3.2 million DAU in six days to make CastleVille the fastest-growing Zynga game of all time.

Note that these figures do not yet exactly align with those reported by Facebook. It is possible that Facebook is a day or two behind in updating traffic numbers, as happens from time to time.

Even with the discrepancy in reported numbers, the following AppData chart of Zynga games'launch week traffic supports the claim that CastleVille is the fastest-growing Zynga game to date in terms of first-week growth.
