Foodily, a recipe network, has announced the launch of Foodily on Facebook to allow people to share recipes from across the web, get insights into their friend’s best-loved dishes and daily cravings without leaving the Facebook Platform.
Using its visual recipe search and social feed of friend’s recipes, the new Foodily on Facebook experience makes it easier to discover new recipes, share recipes you love and ask your friends about the recipes they are sharing, says the company.
“Eating is one of the most social things we do every day,” said Andrea Cutright, CEO of Foodily. “People want to use their friends and family to figure out what to cook and it’s clear that Facebook is the place where so many of these conversations are happening. This release brings Foodily even closer to that community with an ‘on canvas’ experience tailored to Facebook.”
In addition to seeing favorite recipes and what friends are cooking in the Facebook Foodily app, people are able to invite and follow new friends or follow popular topics to stay updated on what’s new on the web and discover new recipes.
According to the company, all of this news is kept in a streamlined feed that tracks food-related posts and comments in an easy-to-find location on Facebook.
Foodily’s recipe index includes sources that range from mainstream food sites to independent food blogs and gives people the ability to visually browse recipes side by side before deciding what to cook, whether searching for “buttermilk biscuits,” “gluten-free brownies,” or a dish “with pesto and without nuts.”
Moreover, people are able to compare recipe details like ingredients, calories, fat content and other nutritional values, which can be a priority when dealing with food allergies, losing weight or merely trying to be healthy.
The app also lets people go beyond their circle of friends to follow favorite cooking styles, dietary requirements, celebrities and chefs, or simply discover people with similar food interests.
