In creating this new feature, Facebook worked with other app-based delivery systems, including Delivery.com, Grubhub and Seamless, among others, as well as restaurants that utilize in-app ordering.
It's an unusual new feature that's created to keep people on Facebook for longer, and it wouldn't be hugely surprising to see it come to the United Kingdom in the future.
"If you see your friends talking about a restaurant, you should be able to click over and order food from that restaurant right then and there".
You can order a takeaway through Facebook by visiting the Order Food section in the Explore menu, browsing the options and hitting Start Order once you know what you want.
Facebook is also working with different restaurants directly including Box, Five Guys, Papa John's, Wingstop, TGI Friday's, Denny's, El Pollo Loco, Chipotle, Jimmy John's and Panera. Also, the application would save your preferences so that you don't have to enter the name of your food or restaurant every time. In this way, Facebook does not have to compete with them as it has partnered with these services. The new food ordering feature offers an option for delivery and take-out.
Accessing this feature is very easy and simple.
Users should find the new delivery option in the latest Facebook app as it rolls out to desktop, Android and iOS devices in the USA now.
"The goals for us are that you can always find a place to order from that you're happy with", Himel told Eater.
"People already go to Facebook to figure out what to eat by reading about nearby restaurants, and seeing what their friends say about them", added Mr Himel.
