Facebook Gaming is not on par with Twitch, but with 100% growth in hours viewed last November , the platform has shown that its content creators can bring back an audience..
Facebook's streaming platform has generated more than 300 million hours watched each month since May. And for some, the thought of getting lost in the ocean of possibilities on Twitch can be intimidating.
Luckily for these people, streaming Facebook Gaming couldn't be easier..
Once connected to your personal Facebook account, all you need to do is access the Gaming Page Creator. Then it will be possible to create a name for your video game streaming page. Once the streamer name is entered, you will have the option to upload any profile picture and adjust the look of your gaming page.
After customizing the page to match your brand, all you need to do is install the streaming software like OBS or Streamlabs and connect that app to your Facebook account, just like Twitch..
Then you will need to access the Facebook Creators Portal and click on "Create a Live Stream".
To stream on Facebook Gaming, you will need to change the option under the “Post” tab on the left of the screen. You can then select "post the page you manage" and another screen will allow you to select your Gaming Page.
Then, you will have to copy the stream key or the server URL and use it to connect your page to the chosen streaming software.
Finally, all you have to do is put a title on your live with a short description and tag the game you are playing. Once done, a gray “Go Live” button at the bottom left of the screen will light up to stream.
