After a 15-month reign of inexplicable Facebook domination, Farmville has ceded its crown to Phrases, a quote, image and quiz-posting app.
MSNBC’s Technolog blog reports Farmville has sunk to a still-ridiculous 54 million monthly users, down from a high of 84 million earlier in the year. The app has been hemorrhaging users since bickering with Facebook over the in-game currency system.
Citing Gamasutra, Technolog warns that Farmville developer Zynga will not go down without a fight, and will soon launch a new app dubbed Cityville.
