Facebook now lets you order food without leaving Facebook

Facebook now lets you order food without leaving Facebook Facebook's food delivery feature now brings Five Guys to all

The social media giant Facebook launched a new feature that allows users to order food for pick-up or delivery across the USA, partnering with several online food delivery services and national chains like Papa John's, Denny's and Chipotle.

The function can be found in the Explore menu in the Facebook app, under "Order Food" (obviously), where you can then browse restaurants in your area and order what you like. On Friday, the social networking site announced that you'll now be able to order food for pick up and delivery through Facebook.

The service is available everywhere in the USA on iOS, Android and desktop. According to Facebook, aside from simplifying the process of ordering food for everyone, it's complemented by other Facebook page options, like recommendations based on recent orders and location, user reviews, and much more.

People already go to Facebook to figure out what to eat by reading about nearby restaurants, and seeing what their friends say about them.

In exchange, the U.S., China France, the United Kingdom and Germany would relax economic sanctions each country imposed on Iran. He held USA government national security positions for 25 years with the CIA, DIA, and the House Intelligence Committee staff.

Users can place orders for take-out or delivery, and if the user has a Delivery.com account already established then the existing login can be used.

The social media giant is expanding the ability to order food for takeout or delivery straight from the app or desktop. The restaurant you choose will have to support one of Facebook's ordering partners. Though Amazon might not be making money on the food orders, its delivery service surely helps with valuable user data, notes Bloomberg. The feature is now gradually rolling out to US users for both the website and the Android/iOS app, and it's currently unknown whether it will make its way to other countries. So really, the Facebook portion is more like a jumping off point to direct users to the food delivery service.

You can now order a Papa John's pizza while messaging your friends on Facebook - without ever leaving the app.

However, the company made no comment as to how long that option was live, or what percentage of users on Facebook had it to use. Note that some of the larger delivery providers, such as Seamless and Caviar, do not appear to be working with Facebook on this feature.
