One of my favorite companies on Facebook breaks up with them. No more Eat24 on Facebook:-(

I love Eat24. (If you’re not familiar, see the bottom of the article for more info!)


I understand why the “brokeup” with Facebook, but they will be missed.  Thank goodness they are still on Twitter and more:

A Breakup Letter to Facebook from Eat24

Dear Facebook,

Hey. It’s Eat24. Look, we need to talk. This isn’t easy to say since we’ve been together so long, but we need to break up.  We’d love to say “It’s not you, it’s us” but it’s totally you. Not to be rude, but you aren’t the smart, funny social network we fell in love with several years back. You’ve changed. A lot.

When we first met, you made us feel special. We’d tell you a super funny joke about Sriracha and you’d tell all our friends and then everyone would laugh together. But now? Now you want us to give you money if we want to talk to our friends. Now when we show you a photo of a taco wrapped with bacon, you’re all like “PROMOTE THIS POST! GET MORE FRIENDS!” instead of just liking us for who we are. That’s hella messed up.


To be honest, lots of our friends warned us about you (not to name names but to definitely name names: Forbes, Fast Company, Wall Street Journal). But we ignored them and trusted you because we loved you. Now we find ourselves questioning our entire relationship.

Read the entire fantastic letter here:

For more information about Eat24 read this excerpt from their website:

Ordering food by phone presents so many hassles, it can ruin your appetite. Getting put on hold. Crappy cell reception (we’re not naming names, carriers). Not being able to communicate with the person on the other end. Reading your credit card digits over the phone. Receiving your order only to find they got it wrong.

These gems and more are why online food delivery is the best thing since sliced bread. And we work to make it the best possible experience for you, with things like:

  • Over 25,000 restaurants in 1,500+ cities – with more being added each day
  • Live chat, email and phone support – 24 hours a day, every day (literally)
  • A service that’s 100% free and insanely intuitive to use
  • A 100% free and insanely intuitive mobile site
  • Easy re-ordering and pre-ordering
  • Cash back for future orders through CashCoupon
  • Exclusive offers and content through our Eat24 VIP program

We’re here to help you. Enjoy your food, enjoy the time you get back in your day, and most of all, enjoy the delightful feeling of being taken care of. So whether you’re working late, in need of a one-night staycation, or just don’t feel like cooking – let us handle the food. Your only job is to enjoy every minute of it.
