If you're on Facebook and getting hungry, you don't need to move from your chair — or Facebook — to order a pizza from Domino's, at least in Australia and New Zealand.
In those countries, for the time being, the company is now offering a pizza-ordering app from within the social network.
Users will need to be on their laptops or desktops; there's no ordering from within Facebook's mobile phone app, Domino's says.
New Zealand — population 4.4 million (not including sheep) — appears to be a hot one for the pizza maker.
"More than 156,000 New Zealanders have connected with us through Facebook and our new ordering app brings them a more engaging and social ordering experience," said Michael Gillespie, Domino's online marketing director, in a statement.
Pizza lovers can also order while they're playing games, including World of Warcraft, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game by Blizzard.
The Next Web noted that Pizza Hut "did beat Domino’s to the punch by two years as far as Facebook ordering is concerned," but said "Pizza Hut’s offering didn’t fare too well, and eventually disappeared from its page."
We've asked Domino's when the Facebook ordering app may be available in the U.S., and will update this post if we hear back.
Facebook itself says that about 80 percent of its 901 million monthly active users live outside the U.S. and Canada. So, perhaps by starting its Facebook pizza app Down Under, it will work its way up to Northern America sooner rather than later.
