Facebook Now Lets You Order Food Directly from the App

Facebook, on Friday, rolled out the “order food” option to all users in the U.S. For this, the social giant has started partnering with food delivery services so that users can order food directly from a restaurant’s page. Cool, right?

To do so, all you need to visit the restaurants’ page that have participated and hit the “start order” button. Once you do, you will be directed to choose an ordering service, and after that, you will be able to select your order from the menu.

The companies Facebook has partnered with include Delivery.com, ChowNow, EatStreet, DoorDash, Zuppler, Olo and Slice. With this, you won’t have to order meals by opening each of these apps individually.

The feature was first noticed in May, as Facebook kept it in the testing mode for several months before rolling out officially. But now, it is available to everyone and will keep on introducing more food delivery partnerships.

From a technical point of view, the placement of “start order” button will play a crucial role here, as every CTA does for any landing page.

However, if you are looking to give your website’s design an aesthetically remarkable and customer-centric look and feel, QousQazah is on the top of our recommendation list.

Airbus Flying Taxi All Set to Make First Flight in 2018

2018 seems to be the year where you might have a chance to travel by flying taxi. You don’t believe it, right? Well, it is all real because the European aviation giant Airbus claimed that the company’s flying taxi concept will be able to make its first flight by the end of next year.

However, before making the trips fully autonomous, human pilots will do the job, whereas a flying taxi has a capacity to take up to four passengers at a time. Apart from that, Airbus flying taxi has been designed to take vertical take-offs that also aim to connect with major transportation hubs including airports and train stations.

After taking a successful ground test, the company is pretty optimistic about its launch. Therefore, this is what Marius Bebesel, City Airbus’s chief engineer has to say: “We now have a better understanding of the performance of City Airbus’ innovative electric propulsion system, which we will continue to mature through rigorous testing while beginning the assembly of the full-scale City Airbus flight demonstrator.”

According to CNBC, the Airbus is planning to operate the craft on fixed routes with maximum speed of 80mph. Well, this will certainly be an amazing ride to save plenty of time and avoid massive traffic on the roads.


Dating App Bumble Launches Bizz, A Safe Platform for Professional Networking

Bumble, unlike other dating apps, is unique in its nature because it allows women to choose who they want to talk to. By using Bumble, women have all the authority to make their choices. On the other hand, men have to wait to be contacted.

Just a few months ago, Bumble made an announcement that it would add business networking feature to its dating app. And, finally it’s here. The new feature is called Bizz and it has already been launched in US, UK, Canada, France and Germany.

The same “women make the first move” theme is integrated into Bizz. Whereas, the core purpose of Bizz is to “clear up the grey areas in networking that often make women feel uncomfortable”.

However, matching Bizz with LinkedIn is not right because it is not meant to provide recruitment services. Although the app allows women to network with professionals, but it won’t get you a job at all, as it is intended for networking and mentoring only.
