Meta leaving the Space, NFTs features are dropped from Instagram

  • Meta platforms, Facebook and Instagram to wind down the NFTs feature from space for now.
  • Instagram-integrated NFTs, ‘Instagram Drops’ was launched in 2022. 

Meta has decided to hold up their NFTs features from Instagram and Facebook platform.

Last year, in 2022 Meta announced the launch of Non-Fungibles Tokens on Instagram and Facebook. The NFTs were called ‘Instagram Drops’. Meta has joined the space allowing people to buy, exchange and sell NFTs globally. 

The Digital collectibles allowed the users to support their favourite creators by purchasing NFTs. The digital collectibles include Art, Videos, Music, Images, and, more. It has hyped up the Internet, a Web2 platform coming out strong to blend in. 

It’s less than a year and Meta has already announced their withdrawal from the space because of less demand. 

Market Strategy or Miscalculation to scrape NFTs from Instagram?

Meta has decided to discontinue the feature. The Brand has not provided any specific reason behind the decision. The Fintech’s company head, Stephane Kasriel has released a tweet, the company has decided to step down for now from the space. The brand will come up with another way to support the creators, businesses, and people of the platform. 

In her tweet, she said, “We’ll continue investing in fintech tools that people and businesses will need for the future. We’re streamlining payments w/ Meta Pay, making checkout and payouts easier, and investing in messaging payments across Meta.”

Instagram-integrated NFTs are a good way for creators to engage with communities and make money on platforms. Could this be a market strategy or miscalculation? 

The brand said they will come up with another way to support the people and creators. As some analysts believe the addition of NFTs on Instagram has a lot of potentials to help creators and communities to engage with each other and expand their name. The brand decided to drop out early and we all are wishing it won’t turn out a miscalculated move.

As it is the talk of the town Instagram uses this as a strategy due to the low demand for it rather than Instagram-integrated NFTs. 

Instagram is on news for their decision to drop the Instagram Integrated NFTs. The news can create chaos or make people to be allured toward them. As there were very few people in the circle who were aware of it but the news of NFTs dropped covering the highlights. Could this be a strategy for the Instagram NFTs to rise from the ashes? 

Meta more rule out decisions

In 2021 Meta has decided to launch a program ‘Reels Creator Bonus’ but recently they have decided to hold their program. This was a payout program for creators after getting a specified number of views on their reel within a defined period of time.

Meta has also decided to release 10,000 employees. This will be the company’s second big layoff. At the end of 2022, Meta has lay offed 11,000 people. 

The company intends to make Meta a better platform for people and businesses to explore and create content and operate businesses. Meta is making many decisions. Instagram-integrated NFTs dropped is definitely attracting people and they are sharing their views on their decision. What is your view on their bold decisions?
