Setting Up Your Facebook Gaming Page

Once you set up your Gaming Creator page, use the tools under the Home tab and the left sidebar options to populate your page. For example, you can upload videos, sell merchandise, and create fundraisers. Facebook Gaming Creator pages are essentially a category of Facebook business pages, so some of the options may not apply to your needs.

You'll want to add as much content as possible to keep people on your page, but quality and consistency matter more than anything else. Stick to a regular streaming schedule, so your followers know when to expect new videos.
