I know SharePoint 2010 has claims based authentication. First off, is it possible to use facebook as the authentication mechanism in SharePoint 2010?

If it is possible what are the steps needed from an architectural level to accomplish this. For example.

How are credentials passed and received from facebook?

Where is the user store located in SharePoint?

What are the steps to build this kind of solution?

Thank you in advance.
