Corinna Kopf, Insta star and vlogger, joins Facebook Gaming in biggest female streamer deal
San Francisco, Dec 28 (IANS): In its biggest female streamer acquisition so far, Facebook Gaming has announced an exclusive streaming deal with Corinna Kopf - an Instagram star and vlogger and is also a member of David Dobriks hugely popular Vlog Squad.
Kopf, a famous digital influencer with millions of followers is moving from Amazon's Twitch to Facebook Gaming under an exclusive deal.
"I'm super happy to announce that I'm now streaming exclusively on @FacebookGaming! 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, in order to make a positive impact in the gaming world," Kopf wrote in social media posts on Friday.
Kopf previously slammed Twitch's decision to suspend her from live-streaming earlier this month for appearing in a broadcast wearing undergarments before the platform reinstated her, reports said, quoting gaming news sources.
In a now-deleted tweet, Kopf had said: "I got banned tonight on Twitch for wearing ‘undergarments.' I was wearing a Chanel tank top. Girls body paint on Twitch and I get banned for that lmfao."
Her inaugural Facebook Gaming stream will be hosted at 7 pm ET on December 30 on her new landing page.
The company says that 700 million users engage with gaming content on Facebook each month - 40 per cent of whom are women.
The company also operates a standalone Gaming app that is only available on Android devices in the Philippines, Thailand, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, and Peru, reports said.
