Meta, the company behind social media platform Facebook, has started the rollout of NFT support for select users in the U.S.
According to a report by Kate Irwin for Decrypt, Facebook is rolling out Ethereum and Polygon-based NFTs for a small number of users. A representative from Meta told Decrypt that the company plans to add support for NFTs on Solana and Flow in the near future.
Meta Product Manager Navdeep Singh published a tweet showing a sneak peak of the NFTs on Facebook. The new feature will give users access to a “digital collectibles” tab on their profile, which allows them to display their NFTs and browse other uses’ collections.
The report mentions that Facebook users will be able to connect their crypto wallets to their profiles. Users will also have the option of turning their NFTs into Facebook posts, which can be interacted with like regular posts.
The addition of NFTs on Facebook comes following Instagram’s rollout of a similar feature in May for select users. Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri tweeted about this on May 9:
