What does it take to be "Recently Popular"? (early data)

We've got some new stats to discuss.... Since will take a bit of work to get the details to you, it seemed worthwhile to share just a couple of interesting discoveries this week where we've actually considered the Recently Popular list as well as the plain old "Most Used" list...

As of 8pm PST on 7/22/2007:

- 77% of the top 1,000 Recently Popular apps have less than 1,000 users.

- Only 3 out of the top 10 Apps on the Most Users list are also in the top 1,000 most Recently Popular [Video by Facebook, Fortune Cookie by R. Tyler Ballance, and Horoscopes by RockYou!]... Yes, that means 7 out of 10 of the apps with Most Users are NOT in the top 1,000 Recently Popular.

- 66% of the top apps with Most Users are NOT in the first 1,000 Recently Popular.

Ok... that's enough for now... it seems interesting at minimum and worth more stats... which you'll get tomorrow (Monday).
