The Big Picture: Facebook App Stats & Trends, An O’Reilly Update

Roger Magoulas

Lots of stats. 650 apps a week over last 8 months But starting in December 2007 usage has become flat. top 200 usage follows power law. Top 5% has 50% of usage. Top 10% is >90%.

FnWall and SuperWall. One was installed more but the other was used more. Flatness may come more from loss of usage in these two apps than real flatness.

lots of winner take all in different categories. Games mostly have non-winner. others do have 1 winner.

looking at installs vs usage.
