Basically, 360 pics works with panorama mode on your Android or IOS device’s camera. The Panoramic mode on cameras allows you to cover fields of a lot of views, up to 360 degrees. A full 360 panorama photograph, reaches a horizontally elongated region of view that allows you to see every angle of the captured picture. 

Panorama is simply any wide-angle range or view of what could be a region or physical field of view, be it in a drawing, a film or in regards to this article, a photograph. Taking or making a 360 picture on Facebook allows you to access your media apps and files to create a panoramic picture that will appear in the saved mode as a 360 pic. Now, you can create a 360 pic from inside the Facebook app itself by accessing facebook directly or through your Android or IOS device, either way, this feature might require a software for those with different Android Operating system.

Note that, any picture that you create with the panorama mode on your camera will appear in the same way once such pic has been uploaded on Facebook.

Another thing worthy of note is “Your device needs to support the panorama” Don’t panic if you are having difficulty using the three dimension pic mode. Not all devices have the gyroscope sensor, however, you can get an external 360 camera to enable you to take 360 pictures.
