Slide – One Million Flash Widgets Added Per Day

Slide, which makes slideshow and media widgets for the major social network platforms (including MySpace, Facebook, Bebo, Hi5, Xanga, Tagged and Blogger) has announced that more than a million new flash widgets are being added to its network every day. Its most popular widgets are Slideshows, SkinFlix, Guestbooks and FunPix.

Slide is very popular on Facebook. Currently Slide’s non-flash based widgets are the 1st, 2nd and 6th most popular applications in Facebook – Top Friends (13.6 Million users), My Questions (7.7 M) and SuperPoke! (6.1 M). Indeed most of the very big Facebook apps seem to be owned by Slide or RockYou!.

Top Facebook apps

Slide claims it is receiving “exponential growth across the other social networks as well”. It was named the top widget network by comScore, according to their measurement of distributed widget networks. comScore stats say that Slide widgets are being viewed by more than 134 million unique viewers every month.

Slide is just 18 months old. We featured them in a story late-June about Facebook app acquisitions. At that point the Facebook-only application Favorite Peeps was acquired by Slide.

According to these current Slide stats, Slide is doing very well indeed – particularly in terms of eyeballs. It’s not known yet what kind of profit (if any) they are making, although Valleywag revealed this week RockYou’s advertising card. But in terms of users and usage (1 million new widgets per day?!), Slide’s growth is very impressive.
