“Order Food:” Facebook's takeout tool brings Panera, Five Guys and more to your doorstep

Earlier this week, Snapchat announced a new feature that lets users book Uber and Lyft rides and make restaurant reservations directly through the app.
Several online services already offer food delivery, but that doesn't mean Facebook won't jump on board anyway.
"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", Vice President of Local, Alex Himel wrote in a blog late on Friday. The "Order Food" feature has been tested by the tech company over the previous year; and they have decided that it is ready to be used for real, starting from just this previous weekend.
Facebook is partnering with different food ordering services in this effort including EatStreet, Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Olo, Zuppler and Slice.
"People already go to Facebook to figure out what to eat by reading about nearby restaurants, and seeing what their friends say about them". In this way, Facebook does not have to compete with them as it has partnered with these services.
Accessing this feature is very easy and simple. You can use your existing login details with these delivery services or if you don't have an account with the relevant delivery service you will be prompted to create one. Facebook will have to persuade them to start the process inside its app instead of using GrubHub, UberEats, Amazon or niche delivery services like Caviar.
This year has seen Facebook roll out other features that keep users within the app.
