Ding, Dong, Farmville Is Dead (Well, It's Not #1)

It's finally happened. After an amazing fifteen months spent atop the Facebook application charts, Zynga's Farmville has been knocked off its perch.

At one stage Farmville — a game adored by its players and despised by everyone else — was clocking up 84 million users a month, making it not just the most popular game, but the most popular application across the entire social networking site.

It's now number two, however, with "Phrases" — a DIY quiz and trivia application — replacing it. While losing its title as King Application, Farmville has some consolation in the fact it remains the most-used social game on Facebook.
