Embed within Facebook like Facebook does with videos

Phase 1: posting 3D Showcase automatically generates a clickable thumbnail

Phase 2: embed 3D Showcase within FB so that you can click on the 3D Showcase blue bar to launch the Showcase

Phase 3: 3D Showcase automatically launches and rotates; just like videos on Facebook

Facebook - and other social sharing - should be as easy as clicking on a button within the 3D Showcase AND the resulting post should look nice ... rather than how it now displays in this Facebook example (which discourages us from wanting to share).

@alx3D shows how .obj can be shared in Facebook:

I would love to see this as a 3D Showcase sharing option.

For more on this topic, please visit this Forum thread:
The Facebook Solution

Here's how it looks within Sketchfab.

Thanks for sharing how a Matterport thumbnail would be helpful for sharing within FB, etc.

Here's the link you provided in this Forum thread about mashing up Matterport with maps (such as Mapbox.com) ...

The thumbnail example you provided from YouTube:

In the Matterport Showcase 2.0 promotional video, social sharing options includes:

Facebook
Twitter
Email

At the very least, seems like social sharing should also include:

Pinterest
Google+
LinkedIn
Embed Code (responsive design)
Instagram

Agree? Disagree?

Or, what other social sharing options do you feel are a "must"?

Dan

I'd love to be able to create offline iOS apps that embed MP tours in them. The key is being able to feature the models without an internet connection.

An alternative could be having an official viewer app by MP like the Kindle iOS app, where you can buy, download and view offline content as needed. Ideally with Mattertags too.

@DanSmigrod Any news on Showcase 2.0?
Really looking forward to social sharing and facebook embedded tours (pretty easy to implement I think).
Of course, Mattertags will be a big plus (and probably what's holding the other features).

thanks!

@ArchimedStudio

In August 2015, Matterport executives gave me a "sneak preview" of Matterport Showcase 2.0 that would be "released soon". Based on that sneak preview, I wrote this article:

Matterport Showcase 2.0 Rocks for Photographers and Real Estate Agents

When Matterport announced Showcase 2.0 and Schematic Floor Plans in their blog post of 4 August 2015 and at Inman Connect, the product was actually not ready for release. It would be months later before it was released.

And, when it was released, no Mattertags (still not available) and Schematic Floor Plans is still in beta.

Obviously, for all of us, a big disappointment. Like everyone else, we have been talking up Mattertags and we have clients that desperately want to annotate spaces.

There have been MANY MUG Forum posts about both Mattertags and Schematic Floor Plans. (Please use the search box – powered by Google – to see related posts.

Two weeks ago, @PeterMatterport (an employee of Matterport) wrote about Mattertags in this MUG Forum thread ...

p.s. you can PM me if interested


So, hopefully, Mattertags (and Schematic Floor Plans) will be released soon. It's been almost a year since these features were announced.

About social sharing of Matterport 3D Showcase tours, we use WP3D Models WordPress Plug-in which works great for social sharing (thumbnail, text and layout).
