According to recent reports, Corinna Kopf signed a deal with Facebook gaming after suffering problems with Twitch as she got temporarily banned from Twitch. Facebook also had made its latest play in the gaming space after following its first major exclusive signing of Jeremy Disguised Toast Wang in November.
Corinna Leaves Twitch & Enters Facebook Gaming
The social network also announced today an exclusive streaming deal with popular Twitcher Corinna Kopf, who is a vlogger and Instagram star. She is also a member of David Dobrik’s massively popular squad of all time.
The battle for the gaming creators has also cost Amazon’s Twitch another notable streamer Corinna Kopf. Corinna announced the same through her post that reads:
“I’m super happy to announce that I’m now streaming exclusively on @FacebookGaming!” Kopf wrote in social media posts Friday. “Most of you know gaming has become a huge part of my life over the last year. As a female gamer, it’s so important for me to find a home that not only empowers myself but also all of you to make a positive impact in the gaming world.”
she continued and said: “As a female gamer, it’s so important for me to find a home that not only empowers myself but also all of you in order to make a positive impact in the gaming world.” My biggest goal for 2020 has been expanding my gaming career as a streamer, and that’s why I am so excited to be partnering with Facebook Gaming because they are giving me the support and tools to help take it to the next level.”
History Of Bans With Twitch
Corinna Kopf, who had one focus on just posting the lifestyle content, has increasingly made gaming her another genre for content output. She has also been very much vocal about her issues at Twitch. Especially after being banned for wearing undergarments on stream, and then she subsequently got banned and unbanned. The Instagram influencer has 413,000 followers on Twitch, 1.6 million YouTube subscribers, and 3.5 million Instagram followers.
Kopf previously slammed Twitch’s decision to suspend her from the live streaming platform this month. The reason behind that ban was for appearing in a broadcast wearing undergarments. Besides that, Corinna Kopf and Wang, Facebook Gaming, have also signed exclusive deals with Gonzalo ZeRo Barrios in the United States. She has also signed deals with many Spanish-speaking gamers like Lolito FDEZ and NexxuzHD.
According to the company, almost 700 million users engage with gaming content on Facebook. Out of the 40% are said to be women, that is quite a large number. The gaming platform by Facebook is also charity-focused and has launched new fundraising tools for gaming creators. Facebook gaming platform was launched in January 2018 and has now become one of the fastest-growing game streaming platforms.
Reactions From Fans
The reaction to Corinna shifting to Facebook has received mixed reactions from the streamers. Some of the fans believe that this is a powerful step towards keeping all-female streamers safe and in control. On the other hand, some believe that Kopf may lose a major portion of her audience. That’s because FB gaming users are older and not completely amongst the influencer’s target audience.
But what will happen with this decision can only come out with time. For now, what we know is that Corinna’s first Facebook Gaming Stream will take place on December 30th at 4 PM.
