There isn't a way for to import a contact list directly in to YouTube but it will suggest/find friends for you to add based on your Facebook and/or Gmail contacts.

First you have to enable AutoShare:

  • Sign in to YouTube
  • Click Account
  • Click Activity Sharing
  • Connect your Facebook Account

Once AutoShare has been set up when you visit the YouTube homepage you will be prompted to find your friends.

This blog post on YouTube explains how this feature works.

Full details on the AutoShare functionality can be found here
