Users in 100 countries can now connect their NFT wallets to Facebook and Instagram
NFTs (Non-fungible tokens) have finally arrived on Facebook and Instagram after Meta just announced the arrival of its new digital collectible feature to all US users. The new feature allows you to post and share your NFTs.
Meta (Facebook’s parent company) has been testing this functionality since May, but on Thursday it became available to every user in the U.S and many other countries. These users can all now connect wallets (from MetaMask, Coinbase, Dapper Labs, Trust and Rainbow) to Instagram to share their NFT collection with friends.
Meta said in their official announcement:
“Today we’re announcing everyone on Facebook and Instagram in the U.S. can now connect their wallets and share their digital collectibles,” Meta said in the post. “Additionally, everyone in the 100 countries where digital collectibles are available on Instagram can now access the feature.”
This is likely to have a huge impact on the NFT market over the long term, because (love them or hate them) Facebook and Instagram have 2.9 billion and 1.4 billion monthly active users respectively.
There’s no disputing that this will bring billions of new eyeballs to NFTs over the coming years.
