Facebook will release its gaming creator level up program in the upcoming months. This will help streamers who are just starting out and trying to build a streaming community in Facebook.
Previously, Facebook launched its gaming creator program to rival Twitch and Youtube. During that phase, the company has filtered inputs from streamers including:
- Getting started in building a community and business on Facebook
- Getting discovered and connected with new fans
This resulted in Facebook releasing a new program called the Facebook Gaming Creator Level Up Program. Facebook has officially posted in their blog on June 7, 2018.
This program basically will give creators information and tools to jump their live streaming communities on Facebook and earn money. To achieve that, Facebook is working on these two level up features that can help streamers:
Early Access to New Features for Live Streaming
Level up members can have the opportunity to gain access to Facebook’s new features. This includes tips and practices from established gaming creators. Also access to:
Customized Access to Support on Facebook
High-Quality Premium Transcoding (e.g. access to 1080p, 60 fps)
Unlock Facebook Stars so your fans can support you
Unique Level Up Badge on your Profile and Facebook Page
Limited Access to Beta Products & Features
Community Group with Affiliates
Facebook hopes that this feature will help streamers grow communities more quickly and focus on making great content.
Once communities grow, streamers can hit milestones to qualify as partnered creators in their gaming creator program.
Earn Money with Facebook Stars
Facebook previously introduced Facebook Stars, a way that audience can donate money to streamers. Unfortunately, not all streamers are capable of using this feature. Facebook will continue to create a better experience for Facebook Stars in the level up program.
So, what do you have to do to be part of this program?
- Create a “Gaming Video Creator” page.
- Broadcast 4 hours in the last 14 days
- Broadcast on 2 days in the last 14 days
- Have at least 100 followers on their page.
Facebook Instant Games Portal has officially ended its closed beta period. It is now available for all developers to gain an audience through this feature. Will it be something worth trying for developers? We try to explain.
