This year has been all sorts of amazing for Facebook. The social network invested massively on video, and its users were amongst the lucky ones to fully experience and admire the brand new 360 degree videos.
And while it’s only been 3 months since 360 videos arrived on Facebook, they are already a huge hit among its user base. Their unique features which let anyone experience and view scenes from various angles, has unveiled new, innovative ways of watching videos on one’s device.
In order to thank their fans for the constant interest in this exciting new video format, Facebook published a list of the ten most popular 360 videos watched on the social network. Facebook looked at a combination of interaction factors – including views, likes, comments, clicks – to determine this list.
