I was checking online about integration possibilities for Identity Management solutions like Azure AD with Sitecore.

I could find some good articles like,

But nothing on supporting social authentication.

Does Sitecore apps support authentication using Azure AD B2C for Social Identity Providers?

It could certainly be done, but it'll require some hand tooling.

Aside from the articles linked by @Vinicius you should take a look at Create an ASP.NET web app with Azure Active Directory B2C sign-up, sign-in, profile edit, and password reset. This talks about using B2C in a regular .NET web app - which is essentially what we're talking about, since Sitecore relies on the standard .NET authentication and authorization subsystems.

One thing to note is that the documentation talks a lot about setting up on OWIN, and you may need some additional support to get that going. Take a look at this Federated Authentication article by MVP Bas Lijten, and the Sitecore.Owin GitHub Project by Vyacheslav Pritykin.

    Might be worth/better to upgrade to Sitecore 9 and use the built-in Federated Authentication using OWIN middlewares now.
