          Yes, it's builtin to LR.  Look under Publish Services in the left-hand column of Library mode:

            I will rephrase the previous question. Is there a Facebook plugin for Lightroom that actually works? Hard to believe I have to waste so much time, like so many others, to solve this issue.

              What problems are you encountering?  Some problems with Facebook publishing posted here have solutions, others do not.  Be sure to include the exact error message, version of LR, and platform (Mac/Windows).

                Facebook plugin no longer works under Lightroom 5. Authorization hangs up. Service will not register.

                  Platform is Mac under Yosemite. Cheers!

                    Which minor eversion of LR?  What happens exactly when "authorization hangs up"?  Is there an error message, and is so, what is it exactly?  Is there a dialog window on the screen that never goes away, and if so, what does the dialog say?  (The details matter, since we can use them to search for previous reports and possible solutions.)

                      Lr 5.7 Camera RAW 8.7

                      If I try to add a pic to an exiting album, it fails and a window tells me "Le test d'authentification Facebook a échoué." I then need to check the ok button to close the window. A new window opens. It says: "Impossible de mettre à jour cette collection. Le test d'authentication Facebook a échoué." I again have to click the ok button to close the window.


                      Now, if I right click the Facebook header, the Gestionnaire de publication Lightroom says on the left "Facebook (non enregistré)" and on the right "en cours d'authorisation". But it's iddle.


                      If I click the autoriser button a window opens. It says:


                      Autoriser sur Facebook


                      Vous devez autoriser Lightroom à accéder à votre compte Facebook. Cliquez OK pour vous connecter à Facebook.com, puis suivez les instructiuon et retournez dans Lightroom pour terminer le processus.


                      Annuler (button) OK (button)


                      If I click the OK button, nothing happens. And yes, Lighroom is activited in my facebook settings.


                      What more can I tell you?plugin

                        There have been a number of reports recently of LR's Facebook publishing no longer working.  Unfortunately, the symptoms you report are different than the others, so the solutions that worked for some of them (such as deleting LR's preferences or upgrading from LR 4 to LR 5) aren't relevant here.    Adobe hasn't provided much support for its publishing plugins; however, there is a third-party plugin for Facebook whose author has a very good reputation for being responsive to his users.  (He helped Adobe design the publishing plugin architecture.)
