Last month, Facebook announced some major milestones for games and laid out plans for the future for roughly 300 people at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. For those who missed out, Facebook recently released some videos recapping the panels from the conference.
At the conference, Facebook said that more than 250 million people play games on the site each month, and 82 percent of the top-grossing iOS apps are integrated with Facebook (75 percent of Android). Additionally, developers have benefited from Facebook integration, as well, as more than $ 2 billion was paid out to game developers in 2012. Total payers increased 24 percent year-over-year from the same period in March 2013.
Facebook led several discussions at GDC, such as a general games ecosystem overview and ways that developers can grow their games with Facebook.
