As of Sep 29, users across 100 countries can connect wallets and share NFTs, announced Meta. NFT creators and collectors in the US can connect their wallets and post their NFT collections on both Facebook and Instagram while other countries can only access this feature on Instagram.
As part of the feature, which was tested in May, users will be able to tag creators and collectors, and crosspost NFTs between platforms without paying any fees. In August, Meta began allowing users to post their NFT collections on Facebook and Instagram, and also plans to expand to countries in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Americas.
The company also announced support for third-party wallets like Rainbow, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Coinbase Wallet, and Dapper Wallet, along with support for Ethereum, Polygon, and Flow blockchains.
At that time, some Twitter users were concerned about the safety and privacy of data that was transmitted by connecting a digital wallet to Meta’s platforms. In April 2021, personal information of more than half a billion Facebook users was leaked on a hacking forum.
According to Statista, Facebook and Instagram have 2.9 billion and 1.4 billion monthly active users, respectively.
