Facebook NFTs now open to a few US creators
Facebook will allow select creators to showcase their NFTs on their profiles with a “digital collectibles” badge.
Weeks ago, Mark Zuckerberg announced that Meta’s Facebook and Instagram would soon roll out support for NFTs. He also stated that creators can cross-post their digital collectibles to Facebook and Instagram.
Shortly after, Instagram started allowing some users to post and share digital collectibles. Ethereum and Polygon blockchains were supported at launch with Solana and Flow to follow soon, according to the announcement.
Now Facebook has also begun testing NFTs with select creators in the US.

What to expect from Facebook NFTs
Facebook will allow select creators to showcase their NFTs on their profiles with a “digital collectibles” badge. Like Instagram NFTs, Facebook will also allow creators to post their digital collectibles for free.
Clicking on an NFT will showcase more details including the collection name, size, rarity, and artist name, among others.
As with a regular Facebook post, people will also be able to interact with the NFTs or digital collectibles that you post. They can like, share, and comment on them.
With the current slump in NFT sales and the crypto market at large, this can be a significant move.
More to come from where that came
Meta, Facebook’s and Instagram’s parent company appears not to be resting on its oars following the launch of Instagram NFTs.
Both Instagram’s and Facebook’s NFT tests bear some similarities in terms of roll-out, features, and deployment.
Therefore, since Instagram now allows more creators to post NFTs, it is safe to assume that Facebook will follow suit, with a global roll-out in tow for both.
