Facebook is taking new steps to boost its engagement on mobile and tap into the growing gaming market, announcing Tuesday that it has launched a new mobile games publishing platform for developers.

The program, according to a page on the social network's Web site, says that the pilot program is aimed at helping "small and medium-sized developers take their games global." Launching a game on Facebook's mobile platform, the social network noted, gives developers a chance to reach around 800 million monthly mobile users.
