New service lets you order food on Facebook

You Can Now Order Food on Facebook

You Can Now Order Food on Facebook

From local spots to national chains, Facebook would connect a user with old favourites and new discoveries and order food by checking the ratings by friends.

Facebook has been testing this feature since past year and after responding to feedback and adding more partners, the company rolled it out in the United States on iOS, Android and desktop.

Of course, using Facebook to order food might prompt users to spend more time perusing their news feeds - and seeing ads.

But the U.S. and Israel still retain other privileges as member states, which they will lose should they leave the organization. To protest the vote, both Israel and the USA stopped their funding to the organization and in 2014 lost their voting rights.

Facebook Monday officially announced a new feature that allows its U.S. users to order food from local restaurants. Instead of competing directly with other food ordering services, Facebook is partnering with companies already in the business including EatStreet, Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Olo, Zuppler and Slice.

People already use Facebook to get different recommendations from different restaurants and seeing what their friends say about them. On this page, you can browse food options and select Start Order when you've found what you're looking for. In this way, Facebook does not have to compete with them as it has partnered with these services.

"The goals for us are that you can always find a place to order from that you're happy with", Himel told Eater. "If you don't have an account with that service, you can quickly and easily sign up, without leaving the Facebook app", says Facebook. These facilities are now connected to Facebook in both its original website as well as the mobile app versions of Android and iOS.
