    Which CMS has built-in support for authentication using social network accounts?

    I am looking for a CMS that can do out-of-the box the following:
    1) User login/authentication with accounts registered with popular social networks (facebook, twitter, vk)
    2) User comments under articles

    I know this all can be done with plugins in, for example, Joomla, but my question is whether there is a CMS that can do it natively.

    Thanks!

    I doubt it, but I am not for sure. Like you said, many of them are able to with plugins, but natively I don't see this being an option. Especially the registering with FB and Twitter. More than likely you will need to use a plugin.

    Natively, none that I can think of. But Wordpress is flexible and robust. You can modify it either by using cool plugins or just edit the Wordpress function by yourself.

    There may be some fringe CMS that is little used that does this. Your best bet, though is to use something like WP or Joomla and add/create plugins to handle all of that. I'm fairly certain a simple social media login plugin with the "require log in to comment" option turned on would do the trick.
