Non-fungible token creators can now display their digital collectibles all over Facebook and Instagram, according to Meta.
Coinbase Wallet and MetaMask Wallet are two wallets backed by social media giants.
Meta revealed in an updated blog post on Monday (August 29, 2022) that users can connect their digital wallets to either Facebook or Instagram, allowing them to post NFTs across both platforms.
Creators and businesses in 100 countries across Africa, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, and the Americas would be able to showcase their digital collectibles on Instagram.
According to the company, Instagram will support Ethereum, Polygon, and Flow blockchains. Trust Wallet, Rainbow Wallet, Coinbase Wallet, Dapper Wallet, and MetaMask Wallet are also supported third-party wallets.
The ability to share NFTs on social media apps began with a trial on Instagram with a small group of select innovators and collectors in the United States.
Presenting Digital Collectibles
The company is testing digital collectibles with a small group of US creators and collectors who will soon be able to share NFTs created or purchased on Instagram. This feature includes the following:
- Setting up a digital wallet. Once linked, creators and collectors can select which NFTs from their wallets to share on Instagram.
- Digital collectibles are shared. When a creator or collector posts a digital collectible, it will have a glitter effect and can display public info, such as the NFT description. Posts will appear on their profile as well.
- Both the creator and collector are automatically tagged. In the digital collectible post, the designer and collector can be automatically credited (subject to their privacy settings).
Meanwhile, Meta's ongoing development of the feature that includes Facebook and users outside the United States demonstrates the company's intention to provide widespread access to NFTs.
"By increasing support for NFTs, we hope to improve accessibility, lower entry barriers, and make the digital space more comprehensive for all communities."
