Instagram's new Mark Zuckerberg NFT is... odd

Meta hasn't been having a great time of late – and it's mainly thanks to the company's handling of Instagram. The photo-sharing app (although that very definition seems up for debate these days) has seen all manner of unpopular algorithmic updates that haven't pleased users. And now it's giving us... an NFT of Mark Zuckerberg as a child? Okay, then.

Zuck announced in May that Instagram would soon be implementing NFTs, letting users share collectables in their timelines. And one such collectable is an NFT of the Meta CEO's 1992 Little League baseball card. Because who wouldn't want to own the digital rights to that? (Check out our guide to NFTs if you're wondering what we're talking about.)
