The app will serve as a hub for the 360 video and photo content posted to the site. "We believe Vimeo creators are the missing piece to taking 360 video from nascent to mainstream".

At launch, Facebook 360 will feature four main "feeds", delivering content into users' eyeballs from closer than ever. 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.
