Facebook Games Can Now Be Played in News Feed

Facebook is launching the ability for users to try games directly in their news feed. Feed gaming gives game developers the ability to share a playable version of their game within news feed and timeline stories, allowing them to reach new users through some new channels. With this new feature, Facebook games can include a sample of their game in the stories people share that allows friends to play with just a click.

Most Facebook users do not want to give games permission to install and give their information. These previews give gamers a taste and could convince them to install since they will already be addicted.

Expect this to become a huge move in the strategy for Facebook games. Developers will need to shorten their game into a 30-second mini-experience. For some games that will be relatively easy, but for strategy type games it can propose a challenge. Game developers will also need to come up with tag lines like “beat (friends’ name)’s high score” to encourage Facebook users to play.
