Just don't expect to share your own 360-degree media via the app-Facebook 360 is now limited to viewing photos and videos, sharing them to your own Timeline, and "reacting" to them with one of the network's six canned responses. More content is coming your way, thanks to Facebook, which today launched a Gear VR app that lets you browse and explore 360-degree photos and videos.
But as a destination for high quality indie formats, Vimeo has always been on the side of the creators, providing the tools and the platform for them to create.

Vimeo still lags behind in one respect, though: there's no support for live 360-degree broadcasts as yet. From there, you'll be presented with a grid of content to view, separated into different feeds. The upload utility will pull your video metadata to assign settings for your specific 360 video or, in the event that you don't have any metadata attached, it will assign common 360 settings on its own.
