Default Tours in Facebook using iFrames on Page tabs

Prior to Feb 10th Facebook had disallowed iFrames on Pages tabs and, although allowed on Canvas pages iFrames required a user to click activation text or an image to load the iFrame content. As of February 10th iFrames are now allowed on both Page tabs and Canvas pages and they don't require an activation to load them.

I've just been playing with creating an app and using an iFrame to load a tour that I've just finished of a place I stayed in Africa called Ulusaba. I'd appreciate it I could get some comments from the members on the suitability of publishing tours on Facebook.

The page is available here http://www.facebook.com/pages/Red360...57254520999720

(If you would like to "like it" that would be great as I'm trying to get 25 likes so I can register the page.)

One of the first issues I had was converting the original tour from a horizontal canvas to a vertical canvas restricted to 520pixels wide (a Facebook width restriction). I had to loose some of the nav buttons and modify how the menu worked.

One of the nice features is that you can still open into Fullscreen view.

The original version is available at http://www.redsquare.com/360/ulusaba/

thanks for your comments,

Tony

Very nice job!

Here's what I hammered together for FB. Nowhere close to what you have come up with Tony... but that doesn't surprise me or my 10 thumbs.

Hi Suresh,

Actually I'm rather late to the party as there are quite a few Virtual Tours/Panoramas on Facebook. However this method of using iFrames is quite new so I don't know if there are many others using the same technique but I'm sure the simplicity of the implementation will spur many others to post their work online.

Here are some other examples I've found;

360VT

Maya 360

Marlin Creek

I've been reading a bit about embedding the pano directly into the Wall and I've applied to have my site whitelisted so I can test it out. Here's an example of what I'd like to do;

Immersium You need to scroll down until you see an image with a small arrow in the left corner. R?sidence Almes 1 - Tignes is one you can view.

At least I think I have gotten it right there.

Hi Amoscowdog,

Is there a way you share your integration experience so we can do the same thing?

I mean put a VT on Facebook with fullscreen access.

Thanks!

A couple of posts below my post in the FFC forums, you can access a video that explains the process of going through this.
