Facebook's food delivery feature now brings Five Guys to all

On Friday, Facebook announced the launched of a service through which its users can order food for take-away or delivery directly through its app or website.

To use the service, you visit the Order Food section in the Explore menu of the Facebook app, which lets you browse nearby restaurants.

The app lets you browse local restaurants and reviews, much like the delivery apps we have here. The process works the same way - simply select the restaurant and Facebook will redirect you to their ordering service.

It'll be available at launch in the U.S. only, and it's rolling out from today to Facebook's apps on iOS, Android and the desktop (Web).

Twitter Is Working On A New Bookmarking Tool, "Save For Later"
They have not provided information about when the feature might roll out - saying that the design is still likely to change. There's no timeline for the feature's launch but Twitter is seeking user feedback on the feature as it builds it.

Facebook has been testing the service for the past year.

Ordering food for takeout or delivery is supposed to be simple.

For now, the list of national restaurant chains includes Papa John's, Wingstop, Panera, Jack in the Box, TGI Friday's, Denny's, El Pollo Loco, Chipotle, Five Guys and Jimmy John's, alongside local eateries. For instance, if you already have an account with Delivery.com, you can go to the service by using your existing login credentials.

Facebook has 2 billion active users and they are increasing day by day. 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. It's ever so slightly faster if you're already on Facebook, I suppose - and good exposure for some of the services that users might not already be familiar with.

It is not the first time that Facebook has integrated food ordering into the platform. So people can place an order on Facebook.

Facebook is making it even easier for you to get food delivered right to your door.

"Order Food", this new feature has been introduced for US users and we can hope for it to be released in other countries as well, soon.
