Mark Zuckerberg Announces NFT Integration in Facebook


Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg discloses that Facebook users will now be able to display their prized non-fungible tokens (NFT) in the platform. The initiative is part of the company’s plans to help the creators of their social media apps Facebook and Instagram to make more money on the platforms.

“Rolling out more ways for creators to make money on Facebook and Instagram – and sharing updates that will help creators build for the metaverse. We’re heading towards a future where more people can do creative work they enjoy, and I want platforms like ours to play a role in making that happen. ” –Mark Zuckerberg, Meta CEO

According to Zuckerberg, the integration of NFTs in Facebook will initially be just limited to a few US-based creators to test the waters.

Last month, Meta started allowing a few US-based creators to display their NFTs on Instagram, a photo-sharing platform. According to Adam Mosseri, Instagram head, there are no fees associated with posting or sharing a digital collectible on the platform.

Along with the name change announcement was Zuckerberg’s declaration of their desire to venture into NFT — which is currently being rolled out as mentioned above.

Moreover, aside from NFTs, Meta also expressed their plans to release virtual coins, tokens, and lending services on its apps as it assembles preliminary plans for the possible launch. (Read more: Meta Exploring Non-Blockchain-Based Virtual Currency)
