@amit1026418, there is an experimental Twitter 1% firehose source. It is similar to other flume applications but you need to create a Twitter application and mention the credentials in the source section. The channel and the sink can be of your choice. For facebook, there is no prebuilt source supported by Apache Flume but you can ingest data from facebook using the custom source.

Some examples involving Twitter are here
