Share 360 view to Facebook

Hi all,

I have built a HTML5 web contain a 360 view, is that possible to share this 360 view to Facebook with hotspot? Found that some articles said is better to share it as SWF object, if true, may I know how can I generate a SWF file dynamically in server in order for sharing to FB? Please advise if I am on the right direction.

Thanks for advance

It's possible. And not only swf (so better not to do). You need to use a plugin for FB Static Tabs from WOOBOX.

Thanks for reply. Instead of using external library, can I use a dynamic HTML+PHP code to share FB?
