If you want to start experimenting with 360-degree photos, the best way to get feedback and build a following is to share them with your friends and followers on social media.

And while you don't need fancy gear or even a 360-degree camera to take them, some platforms make the sharing process trickier than others.

For example Facebook automatically turns panoramas taken with your mobile device's camera or with the Google Street View app into interactive spherical photographs, but sharing them on Twitter is a little more complicated.

Freelance web developer Fabian Pimminger provides a detailed step-by-step guide in this post on Medium, explaining how you can use a Twitter feature called ScratchReel to convert your spherical images into 'scrubbable' GIFs to be shared on Twitter.

We also recommend checking out these free apps for taking 360-degree photographs: Bubbli, Sphere and Cardboard Camera.
