For some time now, Facebook has been trying to find a way to become a serious contender for Twitch as well as YouTube. The world of streaming has been experiencing unbelievable growth over the last few years. Clearly, Zuckerberg's company also wants a slice of this "cake."
A few months ago Facebook launched its own streaming platform called Fb.gg. This section of the social network is extremely similar to Twitch, where users can watch, follow and leave donations to their streamers Favorites.

However, as you would expect, you are not having an easy task in growing your community. Surely they already had an almost impossible task. Get users who are already loyal to Twitch and YouTube.
Now Mark Zuckerberg and his team have finally realized that if they want to succeed in this world, they will have to extend their mobile platform. So it has now arrived in version beta Fb.gg's application to the Google Play Store. The app is not available to everyone, but you can download the APK (end of article) if you really want to try this new platform.

First of all, if Facebook really wants to have some kind of success with this new adventure, it should seriously consider changing its name. Fb.gg is far from a name that stays in anyone's memory.
The application interface is very simple and intuitive, making it easy to find your favorite games / streamers. You will be able to navigate the menu at the top top, which gives you access to the 3 main areas of the application.
In addition to being able to follow your favorite games. You'll also be able to challenge your friends in Facebook's popular "instant games". This integration makes perfect sense as they should eventually be removed from Messenger with your next update.
Thus, the social network offers its users one more reason to attend this new streaming hub. As with Twitch and YouTube, you can also donate to your favorite streamers on Fb.gg. In this platform the currency used is "Facebook Stars", each of which has a monetary value of 0.01 €.
This world of streaming has grown exponentially over the last few years. Eventually generating unbelievable amounts of money. According to statistical information published by TechCrunch, younger users spend more than 3 hours per week viewing this type of content.
