Sifting through hundreds of options when trying to order food? Ain't no parent got time for that. That's why we're all about Facebook's new feature.
We all have those days where we just can't even think about cooking. Luckily, it's getting easier and easier for us to avoid the stovetop, thanks to the many (many) delivery services we have at our fingertips.
But do you ever feel like there are too many options? If so, Facebook is here to help make the process so much easier for you. The company has just announced a new food delivery feature—and before you groan and say we don't need yet another food delivery company, you should know that this isn't another addition to the already crowded space. Instead, Facebook's new feature will aggregate other delivery services and restaurants so you can order directly from the social media site.
Here's how it works: You simply click through to the new "order food" section on Facebook, where you'll find your food options. From there, you can choose a delivery service of your choice (that is, if the restaurant you've chosen has multiple delivery service partnerships) and order your food without leaving Facebook on your computer or smartphone.
“We're launching the ability to order food for pick-up and delivery directly on Facebook. People already go to Facebook to browse restaurants and decide where to eat or where to order food, so we're making that easier," Alex Himel, vice president of Facebook's Local team said in an emailed statement. "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.”
This is really just we need at the end of a long day—after all, we've all wasted entirely too much time browsing through all the different delivery options we have to work with these days (we're definitely guilty of this). This service could help streamline the process. And the best part? You can get right back to scrolling your news feed as soon as your order is placed.
