Just when you think Facebook can’t come out with any new features, they surprise us all. Their newest feature involves food. People can now have a quick and easy way to order food right from their Facebook. This is a genius idea because so many people are already on Facebook anyway.
According to Reddit, people in forty cities are able to utilize this feature. All they have to do is browse Facebook pages of restaurants that they like. The new feature allows restaurants to show their menus and people can order directly from their page. This is great for businesses for a variety of reasons. For one, it will lead to more views and likes on their page. It will also lead to more revenue because existing fans will start ordering food right from the page! They might not even realize they’re hungry but once they see the ease of ordering, they’ll do it.
This is a great partnership between Facebook and local businesses. After this, it’s interesting to see what Facebook will come out with next. Perhaps clothing and retail pages will follow suit and people can order right from their pages. Either way, this is truly a great idea. It’s something that will generate a lot of revenue and help people out who want to quickly order food. If successful, it’s likely that other cities will implement this as well. Who knows, maybe this will become the way of the future.
