According to reports, the collections would start with NFTs issued by Ethereum and Polygon networks. After successfully launching it on the two networks, Meta reportedly planned to use Solana and Flow platforms too.
In a tweet, Meta’s product manager, Navdeep Singh, hinted that some new features would be added to FB. He continued the features would include a Digital Collectibles tab which would lead to users’ NFTs collections.
Singh added that users can attach their Facebook profiles and crypto wallets together. Furthermore, they can post their NFTs on FB feeds where viewers can like, comment, and react to them.
Meta’s media specialist, Martin Bryant, tweeted that the firm aimed at creating a platform that would serve as a home to Web3 enthusiasts. He added that FB groups have been modified lately to reflect some Web3 features similar to Discord’s groups.
Instagram Is Set To Explore The NFT Industry
In June, Mark Zuckerberg made an official announcement that Instagram would venture into NFTs soon. The CEO of Meta stated that would be able to store and mint NFTs on Instagram very soon.
Furthermore, Mark revealed that all hands are on deck to ensure all technical support for minting is ready and set. Once they receive the go-ahead from their technical team, minting would begin in earnest.

He concluded that they considered it fascinating to create a colony for creators where they can own, mint, and store unique digital assets.
