Thanks to a new partnership with OpenTable, Facebook restaurant reservations will soon become a thing. The social media juggernaut is teaming up with a reservation service app so users can make reservations using Facebook mobile. The OpenTable feature will be displayed as a button on the restaurant's mobile Facebook page, below its address. Users will have access to table availability options and if they choose to make a reservation, Facebook will send the appropriate contact information as receipt by way of email. To begin with, the Facebook restaurant reservations will only be available to iOS users.
This partnership allows for business and social media to connect in a new and exciting way. One can do all this through Facebook, without having to open a new OpenTable app.
