Facebook's "order food" will ensure you are never logged out

Facebook's ploy to keep you logged in

Facebook is becoming that habit, which you want to quit but can't, as you're hooked and the new feature of "order food" is not helping with the quit-urge either.

Yes, Facebook will now let you order food from the app itself so that you get your food and also end up spending some more time on the platform.

Here's all about it.

Here's how it works

Here's how it works

The new feature i.e. "Order Food" is marked by a colorful hamburger icon on the computer interface and it's black and white on the smartphone app.

Facebook had sealed a deal with online ordering businesses and the feature is similar to other food apps. It has a listing, price range, and payment options; all you have to do is click, browse, order and pay.

India

India debut may take some time

This is, however, a relatively new feature and is being rolled out slowly, according to reports.

There is no definite indication on when this feature would make its debut in India, but hopefully soon, as Google's Aero and UberEATS are already here; another global giant giving a food delivery option would make sense.

Facebook is also bringing in one more nifty little addition; it informed CNET that it is "conducting a very small test" that would bring Facebook, Messenger and Instagram notifications under one roof so that users spend more time on their platforms.

The feature is aimed at giving users a cohesive experience and would eliminate the need to toggle between platforms for every other notification.

Impact

Instagram and Snapchat bad, YouTube good

Always speculated and now proved. A Royal Society for Public Health study found out that social media platforms are detrimental to young people, as they amplify their feelings of inadequacy, depression, loneliness and anxiety issues.

Instagram and Snapchat, both image-focused platforms, were at the top of the list, whereas surprisingly, the only platform that had a positive impact was YouTube, according to the study.
