In addition to that, they can also discover new content, based on their interests. Facebook has taken this step in order to give a tough competition as the Twitch and Youtube are trying to dominate the gaming space.
Facebook stated that:
“After clicking the new Gaming tab, there will be a feed of content that points to instant games you can play with friends; videos to watch from top streamers, esports organizations, and game publishers; and updates from your various gaming groups.”
In addition to that, according to the previous reports, Facebook is also working to integrate its three messaging platforms, Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram. However, these apps will not merge completely and will continue working as standalone apps. The fact is that the social media giant, Facebook wants to allow users to use any of these platforms without navigating the app. So, it is expected that Facebook will integrate these apps in such a way that if a user is using any of these three apps, he/she can use the remaining two apps without leaving the previous one.
