CheckItOut! | All the WHYs/HOWs Behind HQ Trivia’s Success

HQ has only been out for 3 months, and it’s already beating Zuckerberg’s inaugural Facebook Live for concurrent viewer numbers.

Live trivia game is without question the first hit in 2018 China. Since the beginning of this January, quite a few players have flocked to it, those with deep pockets of course.
