The Angry Birds Star Wars beta app for Facebook is only its second game on the popular social networking service, however, after debuting Angry Birds Friends back in February 2012.
According to AppData, Angry Birds Friends is keeping over 11 million people busy on a monthly basis, with roughly 1.7 million playing daily.
Rovio will likely remove the beta tag from the Facebook version of Angry Birds Star Wars very soon, possible even in the course of next week, and as usual consistently add more levels and features as time progresses.
We’ll keep an eye on the numbers to see how the Facebook game fares.
In other news, Rovio just released a new Angry Birds holiday song and says it will donate the profits from downloads of the song to Save the Children and their efforts to establish clubs for school children in developing countries.
