        Schema::table('users', function ($table) {
            $table->string('social_id')->nullable();
            $table->string('social_type')->nullable();
        });

           $table->dropColumn('social_type');
         });
    }
}

After successfully add field in database table. Then add fillable property in User.php model, which is found inside app/Models/ directory:

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Contracts\Auth\MustVerifyEmail;
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\Sanctum\HasApiTokens;

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

    /**
     * The attributes that are mass assignable.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $fillable = [
        'name',
        'email',
        'password',
        'social_id',
        'social_type'
    ];

    /**
     * The attributes that should be hidden for arrays.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $hidden = [
        'password',
        'remember_token',
        'two_factor_recovery_codes',
        'two_factor_secret',
    ];

    /**
     * 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 = [
        'profile_photo_url',
    ];
}

Route::get('auth/linkedin', [LinkedinSocialiteController::class, 'redirectToLinkedin']);
Route::get('callback/linkedin', [LinkedinSocialiteController::class, 'handleCallback']);

Step 8 – Create Linkedin Login Controller By Command

In this step, Execute the following command on terminal to create LinkedinSocialiteController.php file:

php artisan make:controller LinkedinSocialiteController

After that, Go to app/http/controllers directory and open LinkedinSocialiteController.php file in any text editor. Then add the following code into LinkedinSocialiteController.php file:

<?php
  
namespace App\Http\Controllers\Auth;
  
use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;
use Socialite;
use Auth;
use Exception;
use App\Models\User;
  
class LinkedinSocialiteController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Create a new controller instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function redirectToLinkedin()
    {
        return Socialite::driver('linkedin')->redirect();
    }
      
    /**
     * Create a new controller instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function handleCallback()
    {
        try {
    
            $user = Socialite::driver('linkedin')->user();
     
            $finduser = User::where('social_id', $user->id)->first();
     
            if($finduser){
     
                Auth::login($finduser);
    
                return redirect('/home');
     
            }else{
                $newUser = User::create([
                    'name' => $user->name,
                    'email' => $user->email,
                    'social_id'=> $user->id,
                    'social_type'=> 'linkedin',
                    'password' => encrypt('my-linkedin')
                ]);
    
                Auth::login($newUser);
     
                return redirect('/home');
            }
    
        } catch (Exception $e) {
            dd($e->getMessage());
        }
    }
}

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

            <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?') }}
                    </a>
                @endif

                <x-jet-button class="ml-4">
                    {{ __('Login') }}
                </x-jet-button>

                <a href="{{ url('auth/linkedin') }}" style="margin-top: 0px !important;background: green;color: #ffffff;padding: 5px;border-radius:7px;" class="ml-2">
                  <strong>Linkedin Login</strong>
                </a> 
            </div>
        </form>
    </x-jet-authentication-card>
</x-guest-layout>
