use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
class CreateUsersTable extends Migration
Run the migrations.
@return void
public function up()
Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
Reverse the migrations.

function boot()

Next migrate the table using the below command :

php artisan migrate

We will create two routes in the web.php file. Go to app/routes/web.php file and create two below routes here :

  Route::get('/auth/redirect/{provider}', 'SocialController@redirect');
Route::get('/callback/{provider}', 'SocialController@callback');

6. Create Controller

We need to create a controller name SocialController. Use the below command and create a Controller.

php artisan make:controller SocialController

After successfully create controller go to app/controllers/SocialController.php and put the below code.

 namespace App\Http\Controllers;
 use Illuminate\Http\Request;
 use Validator,Redirect,Response,File;
 use Socialite;
 use App\User;
 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
   return $user;

 <div class="col-md-8 offset-md-4">
    <a href="{{ url('/auth/redirect/facebook') }}" class="btn btn-primary"><i class="fa fa-facebook"></i> Facebook</a>
