Meta, formerly known as Facebook, has now enabled NFT sharing for all Facebook and Instagram users in the United States, as well as the ability to connect their wallets between the two social media platforms.
Users in the United States can now cross-post their NFTs on both Facebook and Instagram. The formal launch comes just a few months after Meta began testing NFTs with a small group of users on Instagram in May and Facebook in June.
In August, the business also released NFT support on Instagram in 100 countries with a limited number of users. Today, Meta announced that all Instagram users in these 100 countries may now utilize the function.
“Everyone on Instagram and Facebook can now share their digital collectibles in the US, anMeta d on Instagram in the previously announced 100+ countries.” Meta wrote in a Tweet. “Creators like artist Lívia Elektra are sharing their #NFTs on our apps.”
Users of Facebook and Instagram may link wallets like Rainbow, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Coinbase Wallet, and Dapper Wallet to publish digital collectibles generated on Ethereum, Polygon, and Flow.
To post your NFTs on Facebook or Instagram, make sure you have the most recent version of the applications downloaded. Next, confirm that your favorite digital wallet is installed on your phone. You may link your favorite wallet after login into your Facebook or Instagram app by selecting the “digital collectibles” button under settings.
After users connect their digital wallet, they may view their NFTs via the wallet within the Facebook or Instagram app.
Also, users may now publish your NFTs to your feed by posting as normal, and a new collectibles section will be accessible for you to choose from. Alternatively, you may share your NFTs directly from your wallet by clicking “Share to Feed.”
Meta NFT Integration Happened in August
The NFT adoption has been in Meta’s plans for at least a couple of weeks now.
Instagram users in 100 countries throughout Asia-Pacific, Africa, the Americas, and the Middle East will be able to flaunt their digital collectibles, according to a blog post on August 4, 2022.
“As of today, we support connections with third-party wallets, including Rainbow, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Coinbase Wallet, and Dapper Wallet coming soon.” Meta wrote in a blog post. “Supported blockchains at this time include Ethereum, Polygon, and Flow.”
After this announcement, FLOW, the Flow blockchain’s token, increased by more than 35% following Meta Platform’s (META) intention to use the blockchain to extend its non-fungible tokens (NFT) program.
