Zynga's  FrontierVille  Marches Up Top Facebook Games
Zynga's FrontierVille Marches Up Top Facebook Games

[Every other week, we examine the most popular Facebook games (according to monthly active users), looking at the top titles and developers on the social network to see who's attracting or losing players.]

In our last tally of the most popular Facebook games -- before a bug appeared in the social network's user reporting data, providing inaccurate headcounts for some applications -- Zynga dominated the top ten list, with its titles taking the first seven spots.

Not much has changed in that respect with this latest chart, as super popular farming simulator FarmVille remains at the top with around 62 million users, only a few hundred thousand players more than its count over a month ago.

FrontierVille has enjoyed much growth, though, as it's now #2 with 36.8 million users, nearly doubling in size since late July.

Texas Holdem Poker at #3 has also seen its audience swell in recent weeks, as its now has 32.9 million card players, likely boosted by the launch of a localized Traditional Chinese version last month.

The recent launch of its Las Vegas expansion has helped push Zynga's Mafia Wars to #4 with 25.1 million users playing. The mob game is followed by Zynga's Cafe World (22.5 million), Treasure Isle (16 million), and PetVille (14.3 million).

At #8, Mindjolt Games, a portal for more than a thousand casual titles, is the first non-Zynga app to appear on the chart with its 14 million players. Electronic Arts/Playfish's Pet Society at #9 (13.5 million) and PopCap's Bejeweled Blitz at #10 (12.5 million) fill out the rest of the top ten chart.
