Zuckerberg is taking on Bezos. A battle of the unicorns.
Meet Facebook Gaming
, a streaming platform for gamers to broadcast their best Fortnite dubs and League of Legends strategies.
Launched last Friday, it's a direct competitor of streaming giant Twitch, which Amazon acquired in 2014 for just under $1B. Twitch fans are fanatics: over 15 million log in every day to watch.
Not everybody is convinced Facebook is going to win:
"Gamers watch Twitch not only because the streamers they care about are there, but because they enjoy Twitch, period. Twitch as a platform managed to create a sense of community and belonging that I don't think other platforms can match, not even Facebook." – Thibaut Davoult
