The Messenger app snuck up and overtook FarmVille this week as the second most popular app on Facebook in terms of daily active users. But Zynga released CityVille in December, and it quickly made it to the number one spot -- it's not easy keeping up with them!
Messenger's consistently high ranking on the Facebook App Leaderboard for daily active users (DAU) reflects the growing popularity of connecting Facebook to Messenger amongst our customers. Over 22 million people have now connected Facebook to Messenger.
"Facebook chat from Messenger and Hotmail is by far the most popular feature of our partnership with Facebook. The number of minutes spent on Facebook chat from Messenger has grown nearly 25% since we made this feature available worldwide in Messenger at the beginning of February (and a few weeks ago, Facebook chat came to Hotmail users worldwide, too). Messenger now powers nearly 4 billion minutes of Facebook chat per month," stated Microsoft team blog.
