The social media giant has added the “order food” feature to their platform. This is a feature that helps you order for food from you preferred restaurant through their facebook page.

The whole “Order Food” process is powered by Delivery.com or Slice. These two platforms takes control of the process from the start to finish – from browsing the menu, adding items (your food) to your cart, editing​ the order, adding a suggested tip up to payment for the order.
