Facebook launches pilot program for game streamers much like Twitch

By : |January 29, 2018 0

Facebook is exploring the game streaming market by introducing a pilot program for gaming streamers. The social network has created a new program for game streamers which will enable them to earn money similar to Twitch and YouTube.

The company announced the pilot program on its blog post saying, “Many gaming creators monetize their videos directly from the support of their passionate fans, and we’re actively exploring ways for fans to back their favorite gaming creators via payments during select live streams on Facebook.” It further read, “Based on the results of our initial tests, we’ll expand our fan support monetization initiatives to more gaming creators, including participants in our initial pilot program.”

Those accepted into the pilot program will be able to live stream at 1080p/60fps instead of the current 720p/30fps with Facebook Live and tip a minimum of $3 to gamers accepted into the program while they stream.

The pilot program is focused on helping creators build more meaningful and engaged communities on Facebook than anywhere else. The program also aims to increase visibility through Instagram and Oculus, which are owned by Facebook.

Additionally, the program aims to enable creators to make a living and create “a platform where creators at every level have the opportunity to thrive.” Those interested in the program can sign up here.
