Meta has added more digital asset functionality between two of its top social media platforms. 

“Today we’re announcing everyone on Facebook and Instagram in the US can now connect their wallets and share their digital collectibles," Meta wrote in an updated blog post. "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,”
