New service lets you order food on Facebook

The company has been testing the functionality since 2016, and has now brought it to all users in the USA, across iOS, Android and the desktop. The move to present food ordering is one that enables Facebook to keep clients inside its application for longer periods, rather than seeing clients exit to different applications for normal tasks like ordering a pizza.

To order food, a user simply needs to tap the menu button on the bottom right of the new Facebook app and then select "Order Food". On this page, you can browse food options and select Start Order when you've found what you're looking for. 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. If you don't have an account with that service, you can quickly and easily sign up, without leaving the Facebook app.
