  1. You’ll get the odd-looking screen below. What it does is prepare the file to be transferred to a Gmail-compatible CSV (comma-separated values) file.

Info prepared for CSV file on Friends to Gmail and Google+ Save the content in any notebook program (e.g., Notepad or TextEdit) to capture the text info.

When you name the file, add the “.csv” suffix.

Saving file as CSV

  1. Open Gmail.

  2. Click the “Gmail” link at the upper-left corner of the page and select Contacts from the drop-down.

  3. Click Import Contacts … in the left navigation pane. The “Import contacts” dialog box will appear.

  1. Browse to the CSV file you just created and click Import.

Gmail will then take the CSV file and import all the pertinent information you extracted from Facebook, including birthdays, city of residence, work details, etc.

  1. Check your Google contacts once more to verify the new contacts.

A much easyer way is to use a hosted service like MemoToo and you can check out how I set it up on my blog.

If you go to http://memotoo.com and setup an account you can have your contacts synced with tons of services including:

  • Outlook
  • Google Contacts
  • Google Calander
  • Facebook (One way)
  • LinkedIn (One way)
  • Windows Live Contacts
  • Yahoo Contacts
  • Twitter
  • Windows Mobile
  • Android
  • Plaxo
  • Soocial
  • SheduleWorld
  • UNYK
  • Vodafone 360 (this is a realy crap service though)
  • And tones more

Its also ver cheap and you only need to pay £12 per year if you have more than 50 contacts. I have 2000+ and it work just fine.
