If I understood correctly, we could both to gain authentication and authorization to Facebook/GG/Github ... providers. So when to use Spring Social and when to use Spring Security OAuth? If I want to have a simple registration/login/logout with Facebook/Google, which should i use?

I believe that would be Spring Social, which probably is built on top of OAuth, or maybe even other security providers as well.

You would use OAuth if there isn't a Spring Social provider for the site you're interested in.
