return [
    'facebook' => [
        'client_id' => 'your client ID',
        'client_secret' => 'your client secret',
        'redirect' => 'http://localhost:8000/callback',


Step 6 : Create Controller

Now create Controller LoginWithFacebookController, in this controller we have added redirect() function to redirect the user to Facebook and callback() function is used for handle user when callback from Facebook.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Exception;
use App\Models\User;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth;
use Laravel\Socialite\Facades\Socialite;

class LoginWithFacebookController extends Controller
    public function redirectFacebook()
        return Socialite::driver('facebook')->redirect();

    public function facebookCallback()
        try {
            $user = Socialite::driver('facebook')->user();
            $finduser = User::where('facebook_id', $user->id)->first();
                return redirect()->intended('dashboard');
                $newUser = User::create([
                    'name' => $user->name,
                    'email' => $user->email,
                    'facebook_id'=> $user->id,
                    'password' => encrypt('Test123456')
                return redirect()->intended('dashboard');
        } catch (Exception $e) {


Step 7 : Create Route

Add below code in your route file.


use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\LoginWithFacebookController;

Route::get('/redirect', [LoginWithFacebookController::class, 'redirectFacebook']);
Route::get('/callback', [LoginWithFacebookController::class, 'facebookCallback']);


Step 8 : Add Code in Blade File

 Now add below code in resources/views/auth/login.blade.php.

        <x-slot name="logo">
            <x-jet-authentication-card-logo />

        <x-jet-validation-errors class="mb-4" />

        @if (session('status'))
            <div class="mb-4 font-medium text-sm text-green-600">
                {{ session('status') }}

        <form method="POST" action="{{ route('login') }}">

                <x-jet-label for="email" value="{{ __('Email') }}" />
                <x-jet-input id="email" class="block mt-1 w-full" type="email" name="email" :value="old('email')" required autofocus />

            <div class="mt-4">
                <x-jet-label for="password" value="{{ __('Password') }}" />
                <x-jet-input id="password" class="block mt-1 w-full" type="password" name="password" required autocomplete="current-password" />

            <div class="block mt-4">
                <label for="remember_me" class="flex items-center">
                    <input id="remember_me" type="checkbox" class="form-checkbox" name="remember">
                    <span class="ml-2 text-sm text-gray-600">{{ __('Remember me') }}</span>

            <div class="flex items-center justify-end mt-4">
                @if (Route::has('password.request'))
                    <a class="underline text-sm text-gray-600 hover:text-gray-900" href="{{ route('password.request') }}">
                        {{ __('Forgot your password?') }}

                <x-jet-button class="ml-4">
                    {{ __('Login') }}
            <div class="flex items-center justify-end mt-4">
                <a class="ml-1 btn btn-primary" href="{{ url('redirect') }}" style="margin-top: 0px !important;background: #4c6ef5;color: #ffffff;padding: 5px;border-radius:7px;" id="btn-fblogin">
                    <i class="fa fa-facebook-square" aria-hidden="true"></i> Login with Facebook



Step 9 : Add Column in Database

In this step  add column in user table and set name as facebook_id.

php artisan make:migration Add_Facebook_Id_To_Users


Now, add new column in your code like below.

 public function up()
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {


Step 10 : Update Model

Now, update model as below.


namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;
use Laravel\Fortify\TwoFactorAuthenticatable;
use Laravel\Jetstream\HasProfilePhoto;
use Laravel\Jetstream\HasTeams;
use Laravel\Sanctum\HasApiTokens;

class User extends Authenticatable
    use HasApiTokens;
    use HasFactory;
    use HasProfilePhoto;
    use HasTeams;
    use Notifiable;
    use TwoFactorAuthenticatable;

     * The attributes that are mass assignable.
     * @var array
    protected $fillable = [
        'name', 'email', 'password','facebook_id',

     * The attributes that should be hidden for arrays.
     * @var array
    protected $hidden = [

     * The attributes that should be cast to native types.
     * @var array
    protected $casts = [
        'email_verified_at' => 'datetime',

     * The accessors to append to the model's array form.
     * @var array
    protected $appends = [


Now , we have done with our code and it's time to run our project.

you will get output like below image.
