On Friday, Facebook formally launched its new feature allowing users to order food from area restaurants using the app. You head to the new "Order Food" section of Facebook, find the local spot you're craving, and then hit "start order".

Facebook has launched a new feature in the United States that allows user to order food online and it sounds simply terrible.

And because this is Facebook we're talking about, you can see what your friends have to say about a restaurant before placing your order.

Facebook Order Food option has been in testing since previous year, during which the company worked on adding more partners and address user feedback.

Facebook is already a place where people can check into restaurants and search recommendations to decide where they're going to eat next. Users can browse restaurants nearby and link up with the appropriate delivery option.

Reminding you of your friends' birthdays, showing you which of your relatives is racist, meddling in global geopolitics. truly there is nothing Facebook can't do.

For example, if someone has an account with a particular food order service, he/she can easily order with their existing login id.

Some of the participating restaurants include Papa John's, Wingstop, Panera, Jack in the Box, TGI Friday's, Denny's, El Pollo Loco, Chipotle, Five Guys and Jimmy John's.

"Order Food", this new feature has been introduced for US users and we can hope for it to be released in other countries as well, soon. Now, Facebook wants to make ordering food even easier.

However, the company made no comment as to how long that option was live, or what percentage of users on Facebook had it to use.

Nothing really seems to set the service apart from every other food delivery site other than the fact that it's linked to your Facebook profile, though the provider aggregation could prove convenient.

Facebook confirmed to Techcrunch it doesn't charge any fees for the service or share in any profits from the orders placed via the social network.
