Spotify’s Facebook app has been topping AppData’s leaderboards for some time now. It’s the top gainer this week in monthly active users (MAUs), accumulating almost 1.4 million new MAUs. Spotify has over 32 million MAUs, and its DAU/MAU engagement has increased five percent in the past week.

The company had to defend itself from the onslaught of complaints, and eventually backtracked on the policy about a year later. While the company had hoped its integration with Facebook would help boost its user base, the app’s recent growth shows that you don’t need to make Facebook the only option in order to be successful on the platform.
As the graph below shows, Spotify has gained about 4.5 million MAUs this year alone: [Click to enlarge]
