Meta is done rolling out support for non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, in the US. The company began allowing select developers in the country to display their tokens on Facebook and Instagram earlier this year. But now anyone in the US can view their collections on either platform, whether they’re NFTs they’ve created and sold or something they’ve bought from creators. Those who have both social media apps can also post their digital collectibles from both apps so they don’t have to share them twice.
Additionally, the ability to post NFT collections to Instagram is now available to users in 100 countries. The social network first announced that it would be expanding the feature’s availability to countries in Africa, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and the Americas as early as August. That probably doesn’t sound like good news for people who don’t like NFTs or are concerned about their environmental impact. But it looks like Meta is keen to make them a part of its platforms to create the metaverse it envisions.
In order to view their collection, a user must have a supported digital wallet installed on their device, which includes Rainbow, Trust Wallet, Dapper, Coinbase Wallet, and MetaMask. They then need to link their wallet to one or both apps by going to the Digital Collectibles tab in their app settings. Once they link their wallets, they can view their collectibles through the Facebook or Instagram app and share their NFTs to their feed.
