Post 360 videos on social media

Large social media platforms such as YouTube and Facebook already have a large number of users. By being able to record the interests of the users, it is possible to direct contributions to the desired target group. This also applies to 360 videos that can be played directly on Facebook or YouTube. But are social networks also suitable as an ideal presentation platform? Let’s assume you want to present your booth in the form of a 360 ° video and put it on YouTube. YouTube users who search for “IAA 360 Videos”, for example, will not only see your video in the result list, but also the videos of your competitors. YouTube & Co. should therefore be viewed as a tool for distributing and promoting your videos

In order not to display your videos alongside those of the competition, you may decide to embed your videos on your own website. Okay, this is definitely just going to showcase your videos. But the special 360-degree experience on the PC or laptop simply cannot be compared to the view with VR glasses. In addition, an internet connection is always essential for viewing in the browser. Especially in connection with smartphones and their limited data volume, this is still associated with high costs. Browser solutions often do not offer reliable quality and, depending on the version, sometimes run poorly or not at all.
