So, this brings us to this posts’ topic, how to log into Facebook via Gmail settings.

The newest feature that is supported by Gmail would be the integration of the Facebook login interface into your Gmail account. The integration of Facebook Login components into Gmail is great, despite the fact that most Gmail users are using the normal Facebook login menu, there are many of them that would love to log into Facebook straight from the Gmail screen.
