Facebook will now let you order food

Look for your dining options by going to the Explore menu (the three-line hamburger menu on the lower right corner of the screen on the app) or on Facebook.com and choosing the Order Food option.

Facebook said it has no plans to hire drivers and actually deliver food, but it hopes the new ordering feature will keep users on its site longer, instead of logging off to place orders elsewhere.

"Today, we're taking the time out of finding what you want to eat by officially launching the ability to order food for pick-up or delivery, directly on Facebook", he writes. But it's not at all what you might think; Facebook hasn't created its own answer to Seamless, which would be massive news for the restaurant industry. You head to the new "Order Food" section of Facebook, find the local spot you're craving, and then hit "start order".

The release cites Five Guys, Panera, Chipotle and Papa John's as a few of the chains that are participating in their program.

If you don't have an account, you can sign up directly from the Facebook app. Once you do, Facebook will bring up an in-app browser that takes you through the existing websites for Delivery.com and the others. Shares of food order and delivery service GrubHub Inc dropped almost 3 percent. A Start Order button appears to each restaurant name. Facebook's two-billion strong users get hungry, and before ordering food users will need to jump ship to another app.

Today, Facebook confirms that the Order Food option has been in testing since past year, and, after adding more partners and responding to user feedback, it's rolling out across the U.S.to all users on iOS, Android and desktop.

You'll just have to continue leaving the Facebook app if Seamless is your usual go-to.
