 class SocialController extends Controller
 public function redirect($provider)
     return Socialite::driver($provider)->redirect();
 public function callback($provider)
   $getInfo = Socialite::driver($provider)->user(); 
   $user = $this->createUser($getInfo,$provider); 
   return redirect()->to('/home');
 function createUser($getInfo,$provider){
 $user = User::where('provider_id', $getInfo->id)->first();
 if (!$user) {
      $user = User::create([
         'name'     => $getInfo->name,
         'email'    => $getInfo->email,
         'provider' => $provider,
         'provider_id' => $getInfo->id
