最近一段时间，很多开发者和关心facebook应用程序排行情况的读者都能发现，facebook上部分应用程序出现了不可思议的增长。最典型的是zynga旗下的数款游戏应用，诸如德州扑克Texas HoldEm Poker从2800万MAU，被增长到4199万MAU，再到相当离谱的8400万MAU；Café World的局面也相当相似，从2000万的水准，被增长到3500万MAU，然后再度暴涨到7600万MAU。而zynga一家也从2亿1000万MAU，飙升到3亿6000万MAU的高度。
As many developers may have noticed over the past couple weeks, starting around the beginning of the month, Facebook began reporting some suspect traffic numbers for certain applications. For example, some applications have seen steep increases in reported traffic numbers that do not match stats that developers themselves are seeing in their own logs.
We’ve been in detailed conversation with Facebook about the issue, which they confirmed was a bug when it first appeared two weeks ago. Facebook says they are still working on correcting the bug, though they don’t know exactly when numbers for the affected apps will be corrected.
In the meantime, we’ve taken the step of flagging applications on AppData that have clearly had suspect gains reported by Facebook. For those apps which we’ve flagged, we are instead using the last accurate numbers from before the bug appeared in calculating developer totals. We’ll let you know as Facebook resolves the issue.
