Importing into Yahoo mail doesn't work for me since it halts at about 300 contacts out of 1500 (known bug).

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Get an account on http://www.gmx.com, import your Facebook contacts. Exporting doesn't work for me (it produces 0-length files), but this workaround did:

  • on GMX, go to Contacts
  • right click on the Facebook group
  • send e-mail to group
  • copy all addresses

At this point you can send invitations to this list by pasting it into LinkedIn (Add connections -> Any Email -> Invite by individual email).

If you would like to screen the invites before they are sent, do the following:

  • paste the semicolon-separated addresses into a file
  • run: sed 's/\;/\n/g' file
  • open a GMail account
  • switch from Mail to Contacts
  • import that file

Now you can import from that GMail account into LinkedIn, which will show you a list with names and pictures that you can choose to remove from the invite list.

Cheers, redondos
