The Top 25 Facebook games of May 2013 It’s time to look at the Top 25 Facebook games for May 2013. Since Facebook started reporting its app metrics using ranks in January 2013, Inside Social Games reported on the top 25 Facebook games using AppData’s estimated monthly active users (MAU_E) and estimated daily active users (DAU_E). MAU_E and DAU_E are estimated MAU and DAU values based on current performance data from Facebook and our six-year-old database of historical Facebook application metrics. By analyzing trends in our database of almost 400 million measurements of how MAU and DAU function and move over time, our data scientists have been able to develop algorithms for estimating MAU and DAU values for Facebook applications. Both of May’s lists saw King, which has more than 63 million DAU across its social and mobile games, continue to hold the top spots, though Zynga is still close behind and with more titles in the top 25 lists overall.

Check out the September Education Update article “Showing Videos in the Classroom: What’s the Purpose?” How to Plan Instruction Using the Video Game Model Imagine you are placed in the following scenarios: You are dropped off at the top of a ski resort's steepest run when you've only had experience on the beginner slopes. You have to spend your day on the bunny hill when you're an expert skier. You play a game of darts with the target two feet away.
