Monthly Active Users (MAU)
MAU (Monthly Active Users): The number of players who have interacted with a game in a given month (30 days).
How an “active user” is defined is the key to how MAU is measured and interpreted. If a user plays a game once in the past 30 days or signs up for a subscription but does not engage in the game, is that considered an “active user”? A user who logins multiple times in a 30-day period, may be having trouble using the app and these “activities may not be creating any value.
The best way to analyze the relationship between “Active User”, MAU and revenue is to know and define what activity patterns equate to value on a game site.
MAU is important metric for calculating revenue, CLV (Customer Lifetime Value), “Stickiness” of the gaming site and more.
