THE 360 DEGREE VIDEO.
360 degree video changes the game when it comes to how we record and view videos now. The 360 degree video, also known as immersive or spherical videos, are video recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time, shot using an omnidirectional camera or a collection of cameras (“360-degree video,” n.d.). This allows its viewers to feel like they are in the middle of the scene of wherever the video is being taken.

When using Snapchat, some of the filters allow you to turn to the rear facing camera and you see different things when you turn your phone5 upward, downward, and to the sides.
