Facebook rolls out a new "Order Food" option in its main navigation

Facebook rolls out a new

You can find the hamburger-styled light blue "Order Food" icon in the Facebook app's menu area, or a somewhat more realistic-looking hamburger in your sidebar on the Facebook website.

Facebook is testing a new "Order Food" icon into its main app that allows users to place food pickup or delivery orders using third party services without leaving the Facebook ecosystem.

All in all, ordering food directly from within Facebook could make it more convenient for users that don't want to figure out which restaurants in their local area have online ordering.

The new feature isn't available to all users yet, but should roll out across Facebook's entire USA network over time. A tap on the restaurant's image will take you to its Facebook page, or you can just hit Start Order to get directly to the menu.

Wannacry cyber attack compromised Russian banks in isolated cases
Since the WannaCry ransomware attack began in Europe on Friday it has locked thousands of computers in more than 150 countries. That hole has been patched in newer versions of Windows, though not all companies and individuals have installed the patches .

In October previous year, the social media giant announced a deal with online ordering businesses Delivery.com and Slice.

Moreover, it will also show you whether the restaurants offer both delivery and pickup. At that time, the company said that it would allow Facebook users to place orders with supported restaurants from their own Facebook Pages through a "Start Order" button.

Once you have decided on what to have, you can on the "Start Order" to start the ordering process. So this rolling out of new option of "Order Food" is just an expansion of this tie up.

But for Facebook, it's another example of how the network is aiming to duplicate the functionality of other apps installed on users' devices, and rolling out other features that keep users inside its walls. Among its launched features one networking section that includes weather is "Discover People". lIkewise "city Guides" comes under traveling section. Users won't have to navigate to an eatery's Facebook page anymore, either.
