Introducing Digital Collectibles to Showcase NFTs on Instagram and Facebook

September 2, 2022

With the inclusion of NFT in its social media platforms, Meta reveals its strategies for dominating the digital assets market.

Last year, NFTs were extremely popular. The entire globe observed the evolution of NFTs, with people minting NFTs and many acquiring digital art for large sums of money. Such tokens have grown in popularity to the point where prominent social media sites have implemented technology that allows users to display their goods on their social media profiles.

As Meta begins enabling users to publish digital treasures that they possess across both Facebook and Instagram, it will continue to roll out digital collectibles on those platforms. By connecting their digital wallets to any one of them once, users will be able to transfer their digital assets between the two apps.

Posting NFTs for display is already possible on Twitter and other social media sites. But people can post on Meta in order to show off their digital collection. The platform claims to support all the important blockchains and wallets.

While declaring a desire to develop a digital art marketplace, Meta is also developing a creator support tool to enable creators to showcase their collections for sales of digital collectibles.

Makers inspire people and improve culture all over the world every day. Fans can now support their favorite creators by purchasing digital artifacts – art, photography and films, music, or trading cards – as non-fungible tokens, thanks to blockchain technology (NFTs). Beginning this week, select makers and collectors will be able to share their digital collectibles on Instagram and Facebook.

Creators are using new technologies such as NFTs to have more control over their production, interactions with their audience, and monetization choices. The Meta is looking at what creators are already doing across our technologies to improve the user experience, support artists in increasing their monetization possibilities, and expose NFTs to a bigger audience.

Introducing Digital Collectibles

  • Connecting a Digital Wallet: Creators and collectors will be able to select which NFTs from their wallet to publish on Instagram once they are connected.
  • Sharing Digital Collectibles: A shimmer effect will appear when a creator or collector submits a digital collectible, and it may show public information like the NFT description. In addition, posts will show up on their profile.
  • Automatic Tagging of Both the Creator and Collector: The digital collectable post can automatically credit the inventor and collector (subject to their privacy settings).

Integration of digital wallets with Facebook or Instagram looks to be limited to the apps rather than external browsers. However, bringing NFTs to every smartphone with the Meta app pre-installed might boost the social media behemoth’s earnings or adoption.
