He described his video with words that hint at how with time the modes of sharing these little joys have evolved. He talks about how his mom wrote down dates in a baby book, and his sister took videos and photographs, and now with his daughter growing up, he has shared a video with 360-degree maneuvering angles that give viewers a sense of being present in the moment.
First launched in September 2015, the 360 degree video feature allows users to upload and view videos taken by special 360 degree cameras, that capture footage from various point of views (POVs), instead of one POV seen on traditional cameras. With these videos, you can click and drag to see the video from various angles and perspectives, while it is playing on Facebook. On smartphones, you watch the video from different angles by dragging it with your finger or even just by turning the device. Facebook now also converts panorama taken from your smartphone into 360-degre photos. ALSO READ: Alphabet s Larry Page named the world s most powerful CEO, Mark Zuckerberg grabs second spot
