Either click on the Add update section and select Add update or scroll down until you see the posts area and select Add update there:

Write a description here – use keywords related to your business and virtual tour in your post to improve its visibility in search results. You can always tweak with your post afterward but as long as you use your business name, the type of business and virtual tour in the description it helps people understand what it is they are clicking on. For example it could say ‘Virtual Tour for Trusted Photography, your local Street View Trusted Photography service’, you have 1500 characters to use so add to the description to increase its visibility chances.

You should also add an image to the above, the easiest way is to use the snipping tool or do a screen grab of the start area for the virtual tour and save this as a jpeg.

And finally add a button, select a suitable option – ie Learn more and add in the link using the copy link option mentioned above.
