Facebook just made your weather app obsolete
The new feature, an extension of its earlier version "weather greetings", can be accessed from News Feed or the mobile app's "More" menu.
The weather forecast will be based on your current location, however, like other weather apps, Facebook will also give options to search for other places. Simply go into the Facebook menu (three horizontal bars) and scroll to the list of Apps. A new Weather section can be found in the company's iOS app and Facebook will now offer an option to set notifications for receiving weather reports.
"Notifications and the more detailed greetings are rolling out for tests now, with all these updates being widely available by the end of the month", says the company.
The Weather app gets its information from the Weather Channel.
It is said that the idea behind implementing this feature is to ensure that the users stay hooked onto the Facebook app. Hourly and weekly forecasts can be viewed, and users also have the ability to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit measurements.
Now you can order food from restaurants directly from their Facebook Page if they're signed up to Delivery.com or Slice.

Facebook's weather info can be seen in two ways. Facebook has been playing around with the concept of weather related information for quite a while.
The site started offering weather greetings to a select group of users last April, and the in-built app builds on that service.
This is a new addition to other updates they've already rolled out this year, including the "Discover People" feature which encourages users to find dates, friends and business connections by meeting strangers through the site.
