New Delhi: Facebook is now no more just a social-networking where one connects with friends or meet new people; it is beyond that now – a marketplace.
Keeping this in mind and its effort to connect users and businesses, the social-networking site has now allowed users to order food through Facebook pages of restaurants.
The move will move into effect from Wednesday and only users in United States will be able to order food through Facebook of now.
There are, however, no words as to when this facility would be extended to other parts of the world.
Users will also be able to get quotes from businesses, buy movie tickets and book appointments at spas and salons, Facebook said in a blog post.
Earlier this month, Facebook launched "Marketplace", a platform that allows people to buy and sell items locally.
Facebook, which has about 1.7 billion monthly active users, also said on Wednesday it would add a "recommendations" feature that will allow users to share recommendations on such things as places to eat.
