Instagram and Facebook introduce posts with collectible NFTs

Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, is advancing as the popularity of NFTs or non-fungible tokens grow and from now on users of these two popular social networks will be able to publish and/or share their digital collectibles on both platforms at no cost.

“We’ve started giving people the ability to post the digital collectibles they own on both Facebook and Instagram. Users will be able to connect their digital wallets to either of the two applications to share their digital collectibles in both “the company explained in a statement.

Normally, each change that the company introduces in its applications is tested, before generalizing it, with a small group of generally random users. On this occasion, for the test phase —which has been taking place since May— a select group of American digital creators met. After two months, it seems that the results of this phase must not have been negative, since the project has now moved on to a new scenario that contemplates the expansion of this update to 100 countries in Africa, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and North America. North and South.

In order to enjoy this new NFT feature, users will need to connect their virtual wallets to the app. For now, the supported blockchains are: Rainbow, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Coinbase Wallet and Dapper Wallet, Ethereum, Polygon and Flow. This necessary step seems to have generated some controversy among those interested in enjoying this service.

It is not the first time that Meta has been accused of not respecting the privacy of its users, in this regard, the company that owns these aforementioned social networks has wanted to clarify that users have at their disposal “tools to keep their accounts safe and report digital collectibles that violate our community guidelines” so that “Instagram remains a safe and enjoyable place for everyone.”

In the coming months, the group plans to explore other features to bring further benefits of NFT technology to creators and collectors.
