Meta announced today that all Facebook and Instagram users in the United States will be able to connect their wallets and share their NFTs.
All US users also have the ability to cross-post NFTs they own on both Facebook and Instagram.
Facebook and Instagram users can connect their wallets such as Rainbow, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Coinbase Wallet and Dapper Wallet to post digital collectibles minted in Ethereum, Polygon and Flow.
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

To share your NFTs on Facebook or Instagram, you first need to make sure you have the latest version of the apps downloaded.
Next, you need to make sure you have your preferred digital wallet installed on your phone. After logging into your Facebook or Instagram app, you can connect your preferred wallet by selecting the “digital collectibles” tab in the settings.
Depending on Meta, a notification will open on your screen asking you for your wallet password. You will then need to follow the on-screen instructions for the wallet application you have installed.
A second notification will open on your screen, after which you will need to click “Sign” and then tap “OK” to confirm the connection of your wallet.
Once your digital wallet is connected, you will be able to view your NFTs from the wallet within the Facebook or Instagram app.
Now, you will be able to share your NFTs in your feed by posting as usual and you will see a new collectibles section available for you to select from.
You can also share your NFTs directly from your portfolio by selecting “Share in feed”.
After selecting an NFT to share, you can add a caption and then post it. Your NFT post will have a glow effect to differentiate it from normal posts.
Meta says there is no fee associated with posting or sharing a digital collectible on Instagram or Facebook.
The official launch comes a few months after Meta began testing NFTs with select users on Instagram in May, and on Facebook in June.
The company also launched NFT support on Instagram in 100 countries in August with selected users. Today, Meta announced that all users in these 100 countries can now access the feature on Instagram.
