The CEO of Meta—Mark Zuckerberg—made an announcement on August 4, 2022, about extending NFT support through Instagram. Zuckerberg’s support extension hints at international expansion across 100 countries.
The social media giant initiated the NFT test launch in the month of May, which is now followed by an expansion process. The extension of NFT support on Meta’s Instagram will enable users and business owners from countries in the Middle East, Asia-Pacific, the Americas, and Africa to regulate NFTs through their social media accounts.
Before Zuckerberg announced the expansion cross-country, only some of the select users of Instagram could avail themselves of the NFT-based support system from Meta.

Flow is another business in the pipeline to form ties and be included on the Instagram platform. Instagram’s features are now updated, allowing NFT functionalities for the creators, business owners, and users.
