Get social user info in view Laravel

I am using laravel social auth guide and I dont know how can I get users info from database.
To get info by auth user I can use
Auth::user()->id; to get info by users created by normal register. How get id of user logged by socialmedia?

Answer

If you are using Socialite class and facebook service provider:

$user = Socialite::driver('facebook')->user();

Once, you get the user instance, you can get few more details with:

$user->name;
$user->email;

See Social authentication using Socialite for more.
