Facebook launched a feature allowing users to upload photos with a 360-degree view. With this, users can view a scene from all angles top, down, front and back.

A 360-degree photo can either be created using a special 360 camera or by simply taking a panorama on your iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Apps such as Street View and Google Camera can also be used to do the same on your android device.

Here’s a quick guide on how to post a 360 photo on Facebook:

On the web

Step 1: Click the Photo/Video tab at the top of the News Feed section or on your Timeline
Step 2: Select a photo
Step 3: Share it with your desired audience
Step 4: Click and drag to view the photo

On your smartphone

Step 1: Tap on the What’s on your mind? box at the top of the News Feed section or on your Timeline
Step 2: Select the Photo/Video option and choose a photo
Step 3: Share it with your desired audience
Step 4: Tilt and move your phone or drag your finger to view the photo

You can also tap on the photo to view it in full screen
As of now, Facebook allows you to post only one 360-degree photo at a time and it’s not applicable to profile pictures. It is different from the 360-videos posted on Facebook. Such videos are created using a special set of cameras to capture a scene in its entirety.
