Meta forays into NFTs on Facebook and Instagram
The popularity of NFTs skyrocketed in 2021. Meta, previously known as Facebook, is gearing up to offer users the feature of creating, displaying and selling NFTs on its social media platforms.
Several billion users on Facebook and Instagram would have access to NFTs. Developers are currently working on the addition of the feature to both social media platforms.
With the ability to display NFTs on their Facebook or Instagram profiles, users can sell digital collectibles and art. According to proponents, Meta plans to launch its own marketplace. However, this could change as the plan is in its early stages.
Minting digital collectibles and selling them adds a source of income generation for Facebook and Instagram users.
In the recent past, several companies in the cryptocurrency or gaming industry have launched their NFT marketplaces. This makes it the obvious next step for Meta.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg had revealed that NFTs would eventually be a part of the social media giant’s foray into the metaverse. There is no confirmation or comment from Meta. The plan to add NFT functionality on Facebook and Instagram is in its infancy.
