For years, in Facebook we received warning messages about what our contacts did when they played on Facebook. Luckily, that tradition was eliminated little by little, because it was annoying, and notifications of games were relegated to a second plane on the platform.
“Facebook Gaming will only be shown to users who usually interact with video game content.”
However, and although now not live booms as prominent as they supposed FarmVille or Candy Crush a few years ago, Facebook users have not stopped playing in the social network.
In fact, 700 million people – out of the 2.320 million users that the social network has – play video games, watch videos about games or be part of groups related to video games on Facebook.
The community of gamers on Facebook is wide, and I’m sure many of them will be happy with the arrival of Facebook Gaming, a new feature that has just been announced on the social network.
It is a new tab that from now on all users will see in the Facebook app, both in iOS and Android. Initially it will be shown to an audience of 10 million users, but the number will increase in the coming weeks. Of course, it will only be shown to people who usually interact with video game contents, which is important, since it will not “bother” users who do not like games.
Facebook Gaming is a tab where you can find featured games, streaming events, video game groups… if a user does not receive it, you can also include it in your application, in the “Bookmarks” option (shortcuts or shortcuts) in the Facebook app configuration menu.
