Meta has announced that it will now let Facebook and Instagram users post their NFTs from their digital wallets. Currently, the supported wallets include Rainbow, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Coinbase Wallet, and Dapper Wallet. Also, only NFTs minted on the Ethereum, Polygon, and Flow blockchains can be posted for now. 


The company updated its blog with the announcement earlier this week, saying, 'As we continue rolling out digital collectibles on Facebook and Instagram, we've started giving people the ability to post digital collectibles that they own across both Facebook and Instagram. This will enable people to connect their digital wallets once to either app in order to share their digital collectibles across both.'


According to the social media giant, users will be able to post their NFTs for free.


Meta first announced this feature in May, and at the time, it was limited to select US-based creators and collectors for testing. Now, the feature has been fully rolled out for all users in the US.


Besides the ability to cross-post NFTs on Meta's social media platforms, rumours also indicate that the company is working on custom animations for NFT posts and digital collectible collections. Meta CEO Zuckerberg had previously mentioned that the company is working on displaying NFTs through Instagram Stories while making them Spark AR compatible.


Meta will be looking to make additional income with this new feature. The company has said it wants to generate a revenue stream from NFTs for the creators catering to the platform's massive user base.


Reportedly, Meta is also eyeing launching its digital art marketplace to let users buy items in the Metaverse.
