Rejoice Gluttons, Facebook Now Lets You Order Food

The new feature isn't available to all users yet, but should roll out across Facebook's entire USA network over time. Facebook's app now lets you buy meals.

Reached for comment, Facebook confirmed that the "Order Food" functionality is related to the October news of Slice and Delivery.com food ordering functionality via restaurants' Facebook Pages, but didn't offer any details as to when the new button in Facebook's navigation began appearing for USA users.

Facebook has previously tied up with Delivery.com and Slice, and this new ordering business is just an extension to that tie-up.

Facebook is rolling out the option to order food straight from its app, with no need to open up a separate restaurant page or jump away from the endless scrolling you're doing through your friends' vacation and baby photos.

Hence, facebook is letting the user order food online from restaurants using Delivery.com or Slice.

Predators forward Ryan Johansen has thigh injury, out for playoffs
He did not play in the extra session. "The game before, I would say that they had a lot more bodies to the net than we did". Subban's pass because the defenceman froze the entire Anaheim defence with a picture-perfect shot fake.

According to TechCrunch, the system will be powered by Delivery.com and Slice, an enhancement of an earlier feature that allowed users to order directly from a restaurant's Facebook page.

Moreover, it will also show you whether the restaurants offer both delivery and pickup. If the company wants to become the platform users sta glued to for the whole day, allowing them to order food seems like a good start to me.

Just go to the desktop "Explore" section, or the app menu, and click on the hamburger icon, and you'll be redirected to a page full of nearby restaurants that deliver through Facebook.

For Facebook users, the feature is one of convenience - they don't have to leave Facebook to place orders, or visit individual Facebook Pages to see if online ordering is available.

The social networking giant is also testing a new feature to increase user engagement between Facebook family of apps - Instagram, Facebook, and Facebook Messenger.
