As if you weren’t already glued to your Facebook account, there will soon be yet another time-suck feature added to the mix: Facebook announced Thursday that it will now support 360 degree photos, giving everyone the possibility of “exploring moments on Facebook as if you were actually there.” Facebook has supported 360 video since September of last year, and if you haven’t yet checked out these videos on your phone, you are missing out. While you can click and drag your way around a 360 photo or video on a desktop, these have truly been designed to utilize the gyroscope on your mobile device, allowing you to tilt and spin your phone like a window to another world.According to Fusion, the new technology of ‘immersive video’ is part of Facebook’s grand plan to get users engaged with virtual reality, and to be less passive while scrolling through your newsfeed.
