Likely you are looking at Oracle's Internet Identity Services. Mainly your Oracle appl becomes a relying party (RP) to support for Internet-based identity providers (IdP), in this case Facebook. You likely to have two use case namely

a) a Mobile and Social server and pls see the use case stated "37.6.1 Authenticating a Returning User With a Local Account" and "37.6.3 Using OAuth For Access Token Retrieval"

b) via a Webgate and Access Manager and pls see "37.6.4 Authenticating a User With Access Manager and Internet Identity Services"

But note that from the article, it stated the support for Facebook is OAuth2.0 instead of SAML. So having SSO using Oauth with Facebook is the part that is not known as SSO is mostly via SAML. Probably it is good to confirm with Oracle  support. The above is not so called free unless you are already subscribing those identity suite packages.

This is a quick summary (see the diagram) to differentiate SAML and OAuth - http://developers.axiomatics.com/blog/index/entry/authentication-vs-authorization-part-2-saml-and-oauth.html

Just to share SAML is mostly for Enterprise SSO and OAuth is used delegated authorization of internet resources like via RESTful API required by an application making a call (on behalf of someone or something else) to likely a native app on a mobile device etc.

There is still SAML2 with SSO for Weblogic (assuming not getting Facebook) as shared in http://biemond.blogspot.sg/2009/09/sso-with-weblogic-1031-and-saml2.html
