What to expect from Facebook Instant Games?

Recommended Posts

So, in order to improve the quality of games, Facebook has created a bureaucratic barrier, instead of improving moderation. Now I am finishing the development of a multiplayer game. I have no company, I am an independent developer. Does it make sense to publish the game, without business verification? Or will it all be wasted? It is strange that Facebook writes about verification and individual business, but only has a business that is individual in the process. Why not do business and individual verification at the same time?

Considering all this, we can say that Facebook is not an open platform and the fact that it constantly puts obstacles, so you should not regard this as a new full-fledged platform on which you can build a business. Very unstable.

Business/Individual verification is an efficient moderation tool and is beneficial to genuine developers. You are right to say that we have introduced a barrier by requiring business verification in order to improve the quality of the games and keep bad actors out. We will introduce individual verification very soon. Once you are verified (business or individual), you will not have to go through that process again, and it is an open platform as anyone can apply.

Bureaucracy has never contributed to quality.
You just reduced the amount of games, no matter good or bad. If you look at the App Store, you will notice there is less trash than in Google Play. The reason is moderation. As you know that moderation in App Store is better than in Google Play. And the App Store does not force its developers to mess with the bureaucracy.

Well, if the process of individual verification will be fast and will not drag on for weeks.
By the way, it is strange that you did not do business verification and individual verification at the same time. This is not fair.

I agree.

They could at least enforce the verification only after the individual verification get working, or better, only a month after individual verification release to give a time for devs.
