Facebook Gaming does not plan to leave the cake to Twitch, and its live-streaming site is beginning to evolve.
For live streaming platforms, March was a record-breaking month. Obviously, with the best ratings, Twitch remains the undisputed leader in the field, but Mixer, YouTube Gaming or Facebook Gaming show very good results and are taking up more and more space.
Facebook is presenting a new feature especially designed for gamers to confirm its presence in the sector. If Twitch becomes a platform with more diverse content, then Facebook Gaming will only focus on gaming. You can take advantage of the latest feature of the Tournaments starting today.
This latest choice as its name suggests allows you to organize virtual tournaments. According to the press release from Facebook, this function helps you to coordinate all forms of tournaments, from A to Z, whether it is registration, schedule management, or enter scores.
As a result, streamers will arrange tournaments with friends or viewers with greater ease. Additionally, the app includes new charity resources that allow streamers to raise funds for important causes, such as COVID-19.
While the Tournaments option is not yet complete, it is already being introduced by Facebook to allow its users to stay confined. The Facebook Gaming platform had a market share of 8.5 percent at the end of last year, this year it grew its monthly audience by 210 percent.
The goal is to distinguish between Facebook Gaming Tournaments and Twitch Rivals. Indeed Rivals is by invitation only for streamers and pro, while Tournaments require anybody to register for the tournament.
