For developers to reach 800 million monthly mobile users


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.
