use wget to authenticate into facebook

Hello all,

I am new here .

I am trying to use wget to authenticate into facebook. I tried

wget --user-agent=Mozilla/5.0 --save-cookies c.txt --post-data


 wget --user-agent=Mozilla/5.0 --load-cookies
but none seems to work.

Any help would be really appreciated.
