Facebook Launches a Gaming Tab for Gamers
A Shortcut for 700 Million Gamers!
It is no secret that Facebook is putting a lot of effort to provide to their users personalized shortcuts so that they can easily access the communities and content they interact with most. To this end, a few days ago – on March 14th – Facebook announced that they are rolling out a Facebook Gaming Tab in the main navigation bar that will be a central home for Facebook users to discover, play, watch and share gaming content personalized for them.
The centerpiece of the Facebook Gaming tab is a feed where you can quickly and easily find content that matters most to you. In one place, you can:
• Play games: Play your favorite Instant Games and find new ones to enjoy with friends. The Facebook Gaming tab will become the primary home for Instant Games on Facebook, and Facebook is building new ways for people to invite friends, chat, and play together inside the tab.
• Watch gaming videos: Find and follow videos from top streamers, esports organizations and game publishers. Over time, Facebook will recommend and help you discover new streamers based on the games and content you follow.
• Connect with gaming groups: Follow updates from your gaming groups, connect with other group members, and find new groups to join. Gaming groups are some of the largest and most engaged communities on Facebook, and the Facebook Gaming tab brings this content together in one place.
Facebook will start rolling out the Facebook Gaming tab to a small subset of the more than 700 million people who enjoy gaming on Facebook each month. Over time, Facebook will ‘ll expand access to more gaming enthusiasts. People who don’t see the tab in their main navigation bar can find it by going to the Bookmarks menu.
According to Facebook’s related post, “the Facebook Gaming tab allows anyone to participate in the gaming communities that matter most to them. All of our work on the Facebook Gaming team adds up to helping build the world’s gaming community — a place for everyone to enjoy and experience games together.”
