Facebook introduces 360° images

Now there’s a great new way to attract customer attention on social media. Facebook has introduced interactive 360° images to their timeline. All 360° photos in Facebook are marked with a compass icon. You can view the 360-degree photo by either dragging your finger across the photo or moving your phone to see the full 360-degree view. To view the 360 photo in full screen, simply tap the photo. You can view 360 photos on the web with Chrome, Safari or Firefox. On Android devices from 2013 or newer, running OS v4.4 or newer. As well as on iOS devices, using an iPhone 5s or newer, running iOS 8.0 or newer. Make sure you have the latest Facebook app for iOS or Android installed on your device.

It’s always been possible to embed our virtual tours in Facebook using these instructions but now you can get even more value from the images we provide by publishing them to your timeline just like a standard image.

If you want to give it a try just let me know and we’ll send you an image to try or take a look at our Facebook page.
