Facebook is building a platform for HQ Trivia
With interactive and live video 🏆

Facebook is trying to play nice with game shows. The social media giant just launched a “platform for game shows,” where hosts can ask questions live to their audience.
We believe that many traditional formats — from game shows to reality TV and even scripted content can be reinvented to be more participatory and community-centric.

Gameshow launch partners include Fresno’s What’s In The Box where viewers guess what’s inside, . and BuzzFeed News’ Outside Your Bubble where contestants have to guess what their opponents are thinking.
They repeatedly went out of their way to avoid mentioning HQ Trivia, ...
... a popular live, mobile-first game which exploded over the summer.

Facebook won’t be taking a share of the prize money in this test.
They're also giving up their cut of the $5/mo subscription that creators can charge for premium content.
We'll have to wait and see if HQ makes its way onto the platform. 🤷‍♂
