Paul joins Facebook in launching 360° photos
Facebook today is launching a new way of sharing those special moments with friends and family: 360 photos. To celebrate the launch, Paul is one of the first to share a 360 photo on Facebook.
From today – Thursday 9th June – people on Facebook can post photos in 360 degrees and share them with their friends; either on your Page, or via News Feed. Paul’s inaugural photo – which can be seen on his Facebook Page by clicking HERE! – was taken during his recent concert in Córdoba, Argentina.
The new 360° photos allow the user to either pan around and explore the scene by moving their phone, or by click and dragging on a desktop — much as they can with 360 videos like Paul’s ‘Early Days’, published earlier in the week.
From tomorrow - at the Olympic Stadium show in Munich - Paul will also begin posting 360° photos on Facebook from his ‘One On One’ tour using the hashtag #OneOnOne360. If you’re going to see Paul play, we’d love to see your 360° photos too, so remember to use the hashtag and let fans from around the world enjoy the view!
To post photos, just share your panorama or 360-degree photo to Facebook and it will be converted into a fully immersive 360 photo.
