Things to know

Before you start working with the feature or develop an acquaintance with it, knowing about its functionalities and features will be crucial. With the arrival of 3D posts, individuals can view a product and interact with it from all the sides.

Quite naturally, some of the well-known and market-leading brands are leveraging this particular feature to the tee. Since they are figuring out ways and means to make their content attractive as well as appealing to target consumers, 3D posts can be highly beneficial to them.

Identifying the functionalities

The emergence and introduction of this latest innovation took place on 20th February, when FB announced its support for 3D posts through the industry-specific glTF 2.0 format. It is this particular format that enhances functionality thus allowing artists to create high-quality three-dimensional posts with advanced textures, lighting, and unique rendering.

One can also share their 3D posts through graph API. Developers can integrate the 3D sharing feature into an application, thus helping individuals share captivating, immersive, and realistic posts with a single click.

The marketing point of view

Whether it’s a bunch of snapshots clicked with a camera or a product for the target audiences, this particular feature rolled out by FB will bring everything to life. Sharing immersive experiences has become easier, and quite a few business marketers are striving hard to make the most of it.

We are living in a world where AR and VR have become integral parts of one’s life. People are always looking for realistic experiences and there’s no denying that they are thirsty for immersive viewing. With 3D posts, marketers and product developers have the chance to present their items in a never-seen-before way. Quite naturally, that will accelerate their bottom lines and take the venture ahead of the growth curve.
