I am convinced that VR is the next big interface revolution – Facebook feels the same. It is certainly investing a huge amount of resources in the development of the technology itself, but it is also making sure it takes part in the VR ecosystem. At the moment, Facebook is one of the best places to discover 360 video, and if you’ve got Oculus Video, you’re in luck because now there’s a Facebook Videos tab that will help you discover and share 360 videos.
