With all the virtual reality and 360-degree videos that are being made it only makes sense that Facebook is joining in on the interactive technological fun. Along with Oculus Rift, Facebook is going to be bringing virtual reality-like videos to people's news feeds. This means that images will turn into immersive videos that allow viewers to click in any direction to view a wider perspective.

The likes of Saturday Night Live, Star Wars and the Discovery Channel are up on the docket for participation in these 360-videos. This experience will increase marketing potential, celebrity promotions and simply entertain viewers. 360-degree videos of things like a celebrity workout or animals hunting are some imaginative ways this technology will be enjoyed.
