Facebook Gaming had a dominant Q3 in 2021, with the video game streaming segment of the social media giants hitting several milestones. According to data presented by Safe Gambling Sites, Facebook Gaming first overtook Youtube Gaming in hours viewed after recording an estimated 1.3 billion viewed hours in the third quarter of 2021.

Facebook Gaming Records overtakes YouTube gaming

Facebook Gaming only launched in 2018, but has since grown into a formidable competitor to established video game streaming platforms like Twitch and Youtube Gaming. Facebook Gaming’s performance in Q3 2021 against its two main competitors serves as further evidence of its increasing influence. In the third quarter of 2021, Facebook Gaming recorded more hours viewed in a quarter than YouTube Gaming for the first time.

Facebook Gaming recorded an estimated 1.3 billion hours of views in the third quarter of 2021, compared to the 1.13 billion hours viewed by YouTube Gaming in the same quarter. Twitch, the long-running frontrunner of the video game streaming industry, was still way ahead, registering 5.8 billion hours of views in the same quarter. Impressively, though, Facebook Gaming was the only platform to see hours-watched growth for the quarter.

The 2021 third quarter figure is also a remarkable 59% year-over-year increase from 2020, further highlighting Facebook Gaming’s rapid growth.

Twitch And Youtube Gaming Q3 2021 Performance Shows Signs Of Deterioration

In the first half of 2021, Twitch appeared to be taking over much of the momentum from 2020, but the third quarter numbers show that growth on the platform is beginning to slow down. The estimated 5.8 billion hours watched on Twitch in Q3 is an 11% drop on QoQ from Q2. Total hours streamed on the platform, number of unique channels and average number of concurrent viewers saw QoQ declines of 8.3%, 9.6% and 13%, respectively.

Youtube Gaming saw a similar trend as it saw its viewership decline in the third quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter. The number of hours viewed on the platform was down 12.6% from the previous quarter and, in particular, is a 32.5% year-over-year decline from Q3 2020. The only platform of the three major providers to see a decline on annualized in terms of total number of hours viewed.

Youtube Gaming’s other viewership metrics also fell for the third quarter of 2021. The number of hours streamed and number of unique channels on the platform also saw a QoQ drop of 5.6% and 8.4%, respectively.

Robert Pascal, eSports Editor at Safe Gambling Sites, noticed:

“Facebook Gaming has emerged as a legitimate threat to the throne that Twitch has held for some time as the premier video game streaming platform. Passing Youtube Gaming for the first time in hours watched in a quarter means passing the torch for second place and is a clear testament to Facebook Gaming’s impressive growth. While the social media giants still have some catching up to do with Twitch, it seems well on its way to becoming a more competitive rival.”

Severe weather warning for UK as Storm Barra arrives Tuesday | Extreme weather




The Met office has issued severe weather warnings for most of the UK ahead of the arrival of Storm Barra on Tuesday, as thousands of homes are without power for more than a week after Storm Arwen.

England, Wales and Northern Ireland have yellow wind warnings on Tuesday and a yellow snow warning in southern and western Scotland.

Storm Barra, a deep low pressure area flooding from the Atlantic and the second storm of the season, is expected to bring the strongest winds and impact to the Republic of Ireland.

Two to two inches of snow is expected to fall across England and Scotland, but meteorologists said it could reach 10cm, especially in parts of the southern highlands and highlands.

In the UK gusts of 45-50 mph are expected, with winds of 60-70 mph in unprotected coastal locations, which could affect engineers’ ability to restore power to homes.

The Energy Networks Association (ENA) said there were 3,190 homes waiting to be reconnected at 2 p.m. on Sunday, up from 4,025 homes on Sunday morning.

The majority of affected homes are in the north east of England, the ENA added.

During a visit to a Northern Powergrid call center in Penshaw near Sunderland, the energy secretary, Kwasi Kwarteng, warned energy companies that the government will review their operations following continued power outages caused by storm Arwen nine days ago.

“I think we can make the system a lot more resilient. We will conduct an evaluation, we will see if the distribution companies have sufficient infrastructure, we can even take enforcement action if necessary,” he said.

After visiting crews in Weardale, County Durham, the energy secretary said engineers have been working in freezing temperatures to restore power: “There are very challenging conditions.

“There is a lot of ice, sleet, snow and it is very difficult for the engineers to get the vital infrastructure ready.

“Some communication wasn’t brilliant. It’s very difficult in a center or hub like this to know what’s happening on the ground, but I think it’s getting better.

“I think the engineers are doing a great job, we’ve also got the military out and they’re all working together very effectively, but there’s still a few hundred people who are still without power and I think that’s really unacceptable.”

Kwarteng said he disagreed that the response to Storm Arwen’s power cuts would have been faster if they had occurred in the south east of England: “The physical infrastructure, layout and landscape is very different. One of the specific reasons we haven’t been able to get people back on the power supply is the weather conditions and they are very challenging [with] people in sparsely populated, very rural areas, and that’s a challenge,” he said.

BREAKING: Fire in Crystal City restaurant row 23rd Street




BREAKING: Fire in Crystal City restaurant row 23rd Street

(Updated at 9:50am) Firefighters fought a major fire Saturday night at 23rd Street S. restaurant row in Crystal City.

The fire was reportedly in the building that houses the Andalusian Hookah Bar and Top Thai restaurant on the 500 block of 23rd Street. Those businesses are directly adjacent to Crystal City Sports Pub and Federico Ristorante Italiano.

Firefighters from several local jurisdictions helped to finally extinguish the smoky fire with two alarms. The fire has created unsafe conditions for firefighters in the building and flames can now be seen from the roof, according to scanner traffic.

Smoke from the fire could be seen in the air throughout the Crystal City area.

The Crystal City Sports Pub was evacuated during the fire as smoke began to fill the building. But co-owner Billy Bayne said the fire department’s quick work and coordination saved his company and others in line.

“To the best of our knowledge, there is no major damage to the Sports Pub,” Bayne said, noting that there may be smoke and other damage that needs to be repaired. “Thank goodness for the fire brigade and the police … they are all heroes, they did a great job.”

Shortly before midnight, the Arlington County Fire Department reported that all fires had been extinguished. So far, there have been no reports of significant injuries.
