How To Post 360-degree Photos To FacebookFor the past few weeks a regular Facebooker would have come across an interactive photo in their feeds. These photos are have instructions written in them “tilt or drag to look around”


The amazing thing about this feature is that, you don’t need a special device to make it happen. You can always use your normal Android phone to do the jazz! 

But should you want to jump aboard the 360-degree camera movement, there is a list of cameras Facebook officially supports: 

> Giroptic 360 Cam

 

> Ricoh Theta S

 

> LG 360 Cam

 

> Samsung Gear 360

 

> IC Realtech ALLie

 

> Panono

 

> 360Fly

 

Anyone of the above cameras will get the job done, but cost and expenses should be considered anyway. 

Your Phone Is A Good Choice

 
Almost all realtime Android devices work with this feature. Facebook confirmed, any device later than an iPhone 4S, iPad Mini 2 or either iPad Air and iPad Pro model 

will work. It doesn’t talk much on Android devices (am sure all from at least version 4.4 and above are on track), but does specifically state using a Galaxy device newer than Samsung Galaxy S5 or Galaxy Note 3 will work. 

If you are not using a Samsung Android device, then downloading the Google Camera app might be a better choice for you. 

Here Is The Way

 
Bascially, not just any kind of photo will work with Facebook’s 360-degree viewer, you need to use the camera app on your device to take a panorama photo. Am sure you might have some chunks of it on your phone right now as a result of playing around with the panorama feature. 

NOTE:

 
Facebook states that “this feature will only work with photos that are 100 degrees or bigger”. 

Unfortunately there’s no easy way to see just how big a photo is (in terms of degrees, at least), so if you don’t want to capture the full landscape, you’ll need to do some trial and error to get a better idea of the correct size. 

How To Upload Your Ready 360-deg Photo


Uploading a panorama photo to Facebook is done using the same method to upload all your other photos: Open Facebook, tap Photo, select a picture, post.But:Also, you can’t upload more than one panorama photo at a time.
