    Gameroom lets users play web, ported mobile and native Gameroom games in a dedicated PC app free from the distractions of the News Feed
    The next version of Unity; Unity 5.6 will allow developers to export their games to Facebook gameroom. They'll have a long up hill battle to get to where steam is today. Do you guys think they'll make it?

    Is the number 1 spy that people themselves give their info, it will never become irrelevant.

    Now more on topic, I didn't though that the gaming aspect of it was still relevant.
