This indicates that it is a 3d Photo.  Here is what happens when you tap on a 3d photo in the Facebook app and swivel around on an office chair...

How is this done on an iPhone?

You don't need any special kit or software - just an iPhone with your Facebook App

Step 1 - Choose a suitable place for a Panoramic Photo

Step 2 - Open the camera app and swipe with your finger until you see the PANO mode

Step 3 - Hold your iPhone upright at the starting point (usually on the left ready to scan right) and tap the white circle at the bottom following the direction of the arrow (this will stitch your photos together)
