How to Post 360° Photos on Facebook

Why Post 360° Photos on Facebook?

Attracting a loyal following on Facebook can be time consuming.  Irregular posts with low interactions are almost invisible to visitors.  Custom video production can be expensive in some cases.  Traditional 2D photos are necessary to build an attractive gallery but visitors will tend to continue scrolling down the page until something really stands out.

360° photos are an amazing attention grabber on Facebook.  As a visitor scrolls through your timeline, a 360° photo will move slightly from left to right.  When the visitor opens the full 360° panorama, they can spend several minutes looking in all camera directions, which dramatically increases the potential for more Likes and Shares.  A regular 2D photo is typically viewed for only a few seconds before the viewer moves on and continues scrolling.

So what’s the good news?  Your virtual tour project includes all of the high quality 360° photos that you can share on your business page!
