Though I believe that DMCS has given a correct solution to the problem, here is another way to approach. Use FB.login method with a custom login link.

window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
        appId: 'YOUR-APP-ID',
        status: true,
        cookie: true,
        xfbml: true,
        oauth: true

function facebookLogin() {
    FB.login(function(response) {
        if (response.authResponse) {
            // location.reload(); //or do whatever you want
        } else {
            console.log('User cancelled login or did not fully authorize.');
        scope: 'email,user_checkins'

(function(d) {
    var js,
    id = 'facebook-jssdk';
    if (d.getElementById(id)) {
    js = d.createElement('script');
    js.id = id;
    js.async = true;
    js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js";
} (document));

Body markup:

<div id='fb-root></div><!-- required for SDK initialization -->
<a id=' fb-login' href='#' onclick='facebookLogin()'>Login with Facebook</a>

Alternatively, using FB login button plugin, you can subscribe to auth.statusChange and check for the status of the user in response.

FB.Event.subscribe('auth.statusChange', function(response) {
   // check for status in the response

FB.getLoginStatus() allows you to determine if a user is logged in to Facebook and has authenticated your app. There are three possible states for a user:,The user is logged into Facebook and has authorized your application. (connected),Not logged into Facebook at all.,To determine if a user has authenticated your app:

To determine if a user has authenticated your app:

FB.getLoginStatus(function(response) {
   if (response.status === 'connected') {
      // The user is logged in and has authenticated your
      // app, and response.authResponse supplies
      // the user's ID, a valid access token, a signed
      // request, and the time the access token 
      // and signed request each expire.
      var uid = response.authResponse.userID;
      var accessToken = response.authResponse.accessToken;
   } else if (response.status === 'not_authorized') {
      // The user hasn't authorized your application.  They
      // must click the Login button, or you must call FB.login
      // in response to a user gesture, to launch a login dialog.
   } else {
      // The user isn't logged in to Facebook. You can launch a
      // login dialog with a user gesture, but the user may have
      // to log in to Facebook before authorizing your application.

In this tutorial we'll cover how to implement Facebook Login in React with an example app that allows you to login with Facebook and view/update/delete accounts registered in the React app.,The example app contains the following three routes (pages) to demonstrate logging in with Facebook, viewing accounts and updating account details:, React - Pagination Example with Logic like Google , React + Facebook - How to use the Facebook SDK in a React App

The main index.html file is the initial page loaded by the browser that kicks everything off. Create React App (with Webpack under the hood) bundles all of the compiled javascript files together and injects them into the body of the index.html page so the scripts can be loaded and executed by the browser.

<html lang="en">
