I have to make a POC to make me able to login to my salesforce org(for ex. developer org) from a button/link or anything from my facebook home page.. Is this use case really possible?? If yes. can anyone please help me with the details about it..


Yes, to do this, you need to do the following

  1. Set up a Facebook application, making Salesforce the application domain.
  2. Define a Facebook authentication provider in your Salesforce organization.
  3. Update your Facebook application to use the Callback URL generated by Salesforce as the Facebook Website Site URL.
  4. Test the connection.

This tutorial from Pat Patterson (aka MetaDaddy) explains all these steps in detail. You may also find this link useful.

  • Thanx Gaurav.. Good informative links. Will start to work on the POC now. :) – NaveenRaw Jan 16 '14 at 10:39
