This provides the user with a one-stop shop to look at everything you can have delivered to your home, rather than having to visit individual apps and websites.

"People already go to Facebook to figure out what to eat by reading about nearby restaurants, and seeing what their friends say about them".

If you don't have an account, you can sign up directly from the Facebook app.

"On this page, you can browse food options and select Start Order when you've found what you're looking for".

Facebook has been developing a deeper relationship with food ordering businesses for some time.

Users should find the new delivery option in the latest Facebook app as it rolls out to desktop, Android and iOS devices in the US now. Once you tap it, you'll be given a choice of which delivery service you want to use to place your order.
