Mark Zuckerberg recently announced that NFTs are definitely coming to Facebook and Instagram. Reports claim internal testing will start this week. The test is focus on ways for users to display non-fungible tokens on their profiles.


The integration includes augmented reality on Instagram stories. Engineers at Meta (Facebook) will start testing non fungible token (NFT) features for Instagram and Facebook.

As Kris Holt reported in yahoo.com – “Instagram head Adam Mosseri shed more light on how the NFT integrations will work. Users will be able to share NFTs they've created or bought in their feed, Stories and messages. A limited number of people in the US will have access to these features to begin with.”

“Mosseri also noted the disconnect between the decentralized nature of Web3 tech like NFTs and the blockchain and the fact Instagram is a centralized platform. "One of the reasons why we're starting small is we want to make sure that we can learn from the community," he added. "We want to make sure we can work out how to embrace those tenets of distributed trust and distributed power, despite the fact that we are a centralized platform."

Moreover, Meta plans to leverage tools from its Spark AR Studio to deliver augmented reality support for NFTs on Instagram Stories.

However, there is no definite timeline as to when these features will fully be rolled out.
