Now You Can Order Food Through the Facebook App
Facebook is making it even easier for you to get food delivered right to your door. On Friday, the social networking site announced that you’ll now be able to order food for pick up and delivery through Facebook. That’s right, you don’t even need to exit the app or change your web browser to send pizza, a bread bowl, or a burrito straight to your couch.
“People already go to Facebook to browse restaurants and decide where to eat or where to get food, so we’re making that easier. We’re combining options from a number of restaurants and food ordering services, so you don’t have to search through multiple places and eat what you want, in just a few taps,” Alex Himel, vice present of the local team at Facebook, said in a release.

So how exactly does it work? Facebook aggregates services like delivery.com and DoorDash, as well as restaurants like Five Guys, Papa John’s, Panera Bread, and Chipotle. You can either order through a service (log in or sign up for an account directly in the Facebook app), or you can order directly from participating restaurants.
And because this is Facebook we’re talking about, you can see what your friends have to say about a restaurant before placing your order.
