Facebook Gaming is helping users make the most out of social distancing protocols with the early launch of its new tool, “Tournaments.”

The product provides major aid for gamers looking to create and/or join free-for-all competitions, with features such as registration, seeding, brackets, leaderboards and livestreaming.
