Meta, formerly known as Facebook, has begun rolling out NFTs for some U.S. creators on its flagship social network.
Facebook is starting with Ethereum and Polygon NFTs but will soon add support for NFTs on Solana and Flow, a Meta representative told Decrypt via email.
Meta Product Manager Navdeep Singh shared a sneak peek of what NFTs will look like on Facebook in a Twitter post Wednesday. According to the post, users will have a “digital collectibles” tab on their Facebook profiles where they can showcase their NFTs, which are unique blockchain tokens that signify ownership.
Users will be able to connect their cryptocurrency wallets to their Facebook profiles. They’ll also be able to turn their NFTs into Facebook posts, which can be reacted to, liked, commented on, and shared just like any other post.
Tech and media consultant Martin Bryant argued that Meta "clearly wants to offer a home to Web3 folks" with the announcement, considering the company has also recently begun testing out changes to Facebook Groups to make them look "more like Discord."
