If you don't have a Facebook account, you can create one in a few steps:
+ Go to www.facebook.com.
+ If you see the signup form, fill out your name, email address or mobile phone number, password, date of birth and gender. If you don't see the form, click Sign Up, then fill out the form.
+ Click Sign Up.
+ To finish creating your account, you'll need to confirm your email or mobile phone number.
If you already have a Facebook account, you can log into your account by entering your email or mobile number and password and clicking Log In.
Note: you must be at least 13 years old to create a Facebook account.
Adding a phone number to your account:
+ Helps keep your account secure
+ Makes it easier to connect with friends and family on Facebook
+ Makes it easier to regain access to your account if you have trouble logging in
If you see a number suggested for you when we ask you to add your phone number, it will only be added to your account if you choose to confirm and verify it. A suggested number may be based on:
+ Your phone or tablet
+ Your mobile operator
+ Contact info provided by others on Facebook
+ A number you entered previously but didn't confirm
If you're creating a new Facebook account and didn't get the code to confirm your mobile phone number:
+ Make sure that you entered the correct mobile number. Don't use any special characters (+ or -) or leading zeros. If you entered the wrong number, you can update it and send the SMS again.
+ Try sending the SMS with the code again. If you see a message that says you've reached the code limit, please wait a couple of days and try again.
+ Try sending an SMS containing only "Fb" to 32665 or the alternate number for your country from the Shortcodes by country list below.
+ In some countries, you may need to wait up to 12 hours to get the SMS. We're working with mobile carriers to resolve this issue.
+ You can also try creating a Facebook account with your email instead of a mobile number.
If you added your mobile phone number to your existing Facebook account but didn't get the confirmation code, make sure that the mobile number is correct. If you entered the wrong number, you can update it and send the SMS again.
A 360 video is created with a camera system that simultaneously records all 360 degrees of a scene. Viewers can pan and rotate a 360 video's perspective to watch it from different angles.
Uploading to Your Timeline
If the video was recorded with a 360 or spherical camera system that adds 360 metadata to the video file, then you can upload a 360 video to your Timeline the same way you'd upload any other video.
If the video was recorded with a camera system that doesn't add the 360 metadata to the video file, add the 360 metadata to the video file and then follow the same steps for uploading any other video to your Timeline.
Uploading to a Page

+ Before publishing your video, click the Advanced tab
+ Then click to check the box next to This video was recorded in 360° format to make the 360 Controls tab appear.

To join a group, go to a group and click Join Group in the top-right corner.
Depending on the group's settings, you may have to wait for a group admin to approve your request.
Keep in mind when you join a group:
+ People may see when you join a public or closed group or that you're a member of that group, like in News Feed or search.
+ When someone adds you to a public or closed group, others may see that you've been invited (ex: in News Feed or search). Once you visit a group you're invited to, you'll become a member and other people may see you joined.
+ Certain groups on Facebook have their privacy setting set to secret and may not appear in search results. You can see them once a group member adds you.
