Facebook has announced Streamer Fan Groups, a new type of Facebook Group that lets streamers better connect with their fans.
In a bid to help gaming creators increase engagement and community growth, build richer communication with fans, and play with others, Facebook is launching a new type of Facebook Group – Streamer Fan Groups.
The new Facebook Group type will be slowly launching in phases – to small subsets of creators – in order to gather feedback and make improvements before it rolls out to everyone.
Streamer Fan Groups will allow gaming fans and the community to come together in one place. Furthermore, it will allow creators to distribute their live stream to group members and asking viewers to join the group to stay up-to-date.
Also, group members can connect and talk about a range of topics in chats and rooms organized by interests and hashtags. The latter will be available to fans in certain regions, and won’t be available to users acting as Pages in Private Groups.
Finally, group members will be able to search for each other and play together with the “looking for players” option.
