Facebook enables ordering food deliveries from platform

Facebook says it's working to add more partners as the feature rolls out. You can also select which service you want to use for takeout or delivery if the restaurant offers multiple options.

The new feature centralizes ordering from national delivery services like Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Zuppler, EatStreet, Slice, and Olo, as well restaurants with in-house ordering systems such as Wingstop, Papa John's Pizza, and Chipotle.

Alex Himel, a vice president of Facebook who led the project, told Eater that credit card info will not be saved by Facebook; the most data saved by the social network will be a user's preferences so they can opt to order again. "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 Monday officially announced a new feature that allows its U.S. users to order food from local restaurants. In this way, Facebook does not have to compete with them as it has partnered with these services. You just need to go to the explore menu in your Facebook app and select "Order Food" from the menu. Facebook, at the time, affirmed it was an extension of its previous "Order Food" function by means of the Facebook Pages. For example, if you have an account with Delivery.com, you can easily order with your existing login. If you don't have an account with that service, you can quickly and easily sign up, without leaving the Facebook app.
