Facebook's new photo feature you'll love

Facebook's new photo feature you'll love

There are so many awesome places to see in the world. Too bad there just isn't enough time, or money, to see the Grand Canyon, the Great Wall of China, Niagara Falls, the Egyptian pyramids or Stonehenge in one shot.

But what if you could? What if there was a place where not only can you see those places in one sitting, but have a complete 360-degree view of each one?

Well, considering smartphones already have panorama abilities in their camera settings, people now have an outlet where they can post their footage for all of their friends and family to see. If one of your friends is backpacking through Europe or walking along the beach in the Bahamas, you can live vicariously through them, visually speaking.

Facebook has finally announced the implementation of 360-degree photos in the News Feed. Users can distinguish them by clicking the compass icon in the upper right-hand corner of the image. Then they can click and drag on the actual image to be able to view the entire scene. If someone is using their smartphone, all they basically have to do is move their phone around and the picture will move. Pretty cool!
