NFTs on Instagram: Today we’re announcing everyone on Facebook and Instagram in the US can now connect their wallets and share their digital collectibles.
This includes the ability for people to cross-post digital collectibles that they own across both Facebook and Instagram.
Additionally, everyone in the 100 countries where digital collectibles are available on Instagram can now access the feature.
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.
The user interface shows how to cross-post a digital collectible on Facebook and Instagram.
Update on August 4, 2022 at 7:00AM PT:
Today we’re starting international expansion to 100 countries in Africa, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and the Americas.
Additionally, we now support wallet connections with the Coinbase Wallet and Dapper, as well as the ability to post digital collectibles minted on the Flow blockchain.
In order to post a digital collectible, all you need to do is connect your digital wallet to Instagram.
As of today, we support connections with third-party wallets including Rainbow, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Coinbase Wallet, and Dapper Wallet coming soon.
Supported blockchains at this time include Ethereum, Polygon, and Flow. There are no fees associated with posting or sharing a digital collectible on Instagram.
Every day, creators inspire people and push culture forward around the world.
With the incredible opportunity of blockchain technology, they can now leverage new tools to earn income, and fans can support their favorite creators by purchasing digital collectibles – art, images and videos, music or trading cards – as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Starting this week, select creators and collectors can share their digital collectibles on Instagram.

At Meta, we’re looking at what creators are already doing across our technologies in order to improve the experience, help them create more monetization opportunities, and bring NFTs to a broader audience.
