Facebook Launches its 'Order Food' feature in the US

Posted October 17, 2017

It is available on Facebook via iOS, Android, and desktop.

Users will be able to browse nearby restaurants and order directly from the business. "You can even check out what your friends have to say about a restaurant before you order your food", notes the company's website.

Facebook is partnering with different food ordering services in this effort including EatStreet, Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Olo, Zuppler and Slice.

It's an unusual new feature that's created to keep people on Facebook for longer, and it wouldn't be hugely surprising to see it come to the United Kingdom in the future. For example, if you choose a restaurant and they are offering delivery services through Delivery.com, you can choose it and login with your current Delivery.com credentials.

Facebook, however, appears to want to become a one-stop-shop for everything. If a restaurant works with multiple delivery services, customers can select the service they prefer. "So, we're making it even easier", Himel added.
