Facebook Inc on Friday launched a service through which its U.S. users can order food for take-away or delivery directly through its app or website, thus fulfilling an earlier promise a year ago that its U.S. users would be able to order food through a restaurants’ Facebook page.
By this, users can go to the “order food” section on Facebook’s “explore” menu, which will show them a list of participating restaurants in the vicinity through which they can place their order.
The company said in a blog post that it has also signed on food ordering services such as EatStreet, Delivery.com, DoorDash and Olo.
Facebook’s shares were up nearly 1 percent in early trading on Friday. Shares of food order and delivery service GrubHubInc dropped nearly three percent.
