Facebook Gaming may be a new, up-and-coming gaming platform, but it’s an important new platform for gaming creators. The platform may only take up less than 5 percent of the market share, but for creators looking to make their mark, Facebook Gaming is a great opportunity to get into the field early.
Facebook Gaming aggregates both live and pre-recorded videos on their platform under the “gaming” section of their website and displays them all on their dashboard. It’s easy to discover new gamers through their platform, especially if you’re live, or if you’re playing one of the popular games.
It’s not just about the live videos, though. Facebook Gaming also offers the opportunity for creators to host tournaments with friends. You can also participate in others’ tournaments by registering for them. Plus, you can watch live eSports games and play popular games on Facebook Gaming.
Unlike Twitch or YouTube, Facebook Gaming isn’t quite as competitive and has plenty of room for new creators to move in and capitalize on the platform. Whether you’re looking to work with creators starting off on Facebook Gaming, or you’re just looking to dip your feet into the water, here’s our list of the top Facebook Gaming creators on the platform right now.
