Make 360-degree photos for Facebook
Got a minute?
Heres how to make and post 360 degree photos to Facebook.
While 360 cameras like the Richo Aseda S create these photos.
This Facebook feature actually works with panoramic photos taken on a phone.
For Apple users open the photo app and capture a panorama.
Any handset newer than an iPhone 4s or tablet newer than an iPad Mini 2 will work.
For android users, download Google's Cardboard Camera apps to take a panorama.
Samsung Galaxy owners can try the surround shot mode in the default camera app, which does the same thing.
Then upload the image to Facebook and it automatically turns into an interactive photo.
Tilt and rotate your phone to explore, or use your cursor to explore on a desktop.
Note that the panorama needs to be 100 degrees or wider for Facebook to be able to display it as a 360 degree photo.
