Facebook is about to get its hands on more livestreaming video content, the kind of video it has been aggressively seeking out for months.
Blizzard Entertainment announced Monday that it will soon implement the social network's livestreaming API into its video games so that people can broadcast their gaming sessions directly to Facebook with the push of a button.
Pretty much anyone can use Facebook's livestreaming API, but this use case is worth mentioning. People like to watch other people play video games, and both Facebook and Blizzard know that. That's why Amazon paid more than $1 billion for Twitch back in 2014, why Turner is televising an eSports league and why startups like Kamcord are valued at more than $100 million.
