Just rediscovered these stats I put together in September listing popular apps by category on Facebook.  To demonstrate the speed with which FB is growing I just checked out Farmville’s new monthly totals – now up to a whooping 72 million active users!   Lots of people in one place = lots of opportunities to communicate.  For all you stato’s, you can check out more  @

As an aside, I’d expected sport to be a much more popular sector. Room for some World Cup and Olympic 2012 ideas me thinks.
