We had an inkling this CityVille
thing our mom keeps sending us requests in would be a big deal, but we underestimated just how
big. After launching and quickly overtaking FarmVille's active monthly user count
, Zynga's latest casual hit has now approached "sensation" levels of interest: it's enjoying over 100 million active users right now
reports there are now a total of 100,064,578 monthly active users. FarmVille
's active monthly user count hovers around 57 million. Now, in case you don't quite get how big a deal this is, know that CityVille
only launched on December 2, 2010 -- FarmVille
's been on Facebook since June of 2009. So, in under seven weeks, Zynga's managed to usurp the most popular game on Facebook and almost double its user count.
Actually, now that we think about it, can you usurp yourself? Eh, we're sure Zynga's far too busy counting cash money to ponder such matters.
