Facebook’s new game streaming exclusive is a direct challenge to Twitch and YouTube

ESL One will make use of Facebook’s cross-posting feature, thus distributing streams across the Facebook pages of pro teams and players, and the promise of offering streams in VR. Cross-posting is a unique hook that Twitch and YouTube don’t really have, and it could serve to drive new viewers to Facebook’s streams, depending on how many followers the most notable players already have. – Vlad Savov, The Verge http://ift.tt/2n4xPkX
