Facebook and Instagram both completed NFT rollouts for U.S users across both platforms.
Meta announced today that US users will now be able to connect their digital wallets to Instagram and Facebook in order for them view NFTs and share them with others. This is the final stage of Meta’s NFT implementation. Instagram announced its intention to introduce in-app NFTs in June. Facebook also did so in June.
Users of Instagram can access the feature in over 100 countries. It is currently not accessible for users who aren’t located within the US.
Everyone on @instagram and @facebook can now share their digital collectibles in the US, and on Instagram in the previously announced 100+ countries. Creators like artist Lívia Elektra are sharing their #NFTs on our apps. https://t.co/6yV4HgfHSW https://t.co/wa2wkWgfWX pic.twitter.com/fRi0wA7a6l

Meta’s latest update doesn’t often look like it is a copycat app. Meta appears to be transparently copying its competitors’ latest updates, like remixing on Reels or repost features.
