More on the Yahoo! and Facebook Connect Integration: Import Facebook Contacts Email Addresses

Last year in December, Yahoo!’s Vice President of Communities, Jim Stoneham, announced that in the first half of 2010 Yahoo! will be deeply integrating Facebook Connect across its properties, thus allowing Yahoo! users to view Facebook friends’ activities on Yahoo! and share Yahoo! content on their Facebook stream.

Earlier this month, Senior Product Manager with Yahoo! Mail, Rick Pal, announced that the Facebook integration process is still in its early stages. There are some early results the Yahoo! team can be proud of. For example you can add the email addresses of all your Facebook friends to your Yahoo! Contacts list. This new functionality has been launched late last week and is being rolled out gradually.

“This will make it easy to communicate and share with the people you care about – wherever you are in Yahoo!. So when you are on Yahoo! Sports and you want to email your old high school buddy that great article on the Winter Olympics, his email address is just a click away. Or maybe you want to forward your cousin your airplane reservations on Yahoo! Mail, but you’ve never emailed him before. Now you can type the first few letters of his name in Yahoo! Mail and – presto! – his email address from his Facebook profile will appear in your email,” commented Rick Pal.

Here is what you have to do to import your friends’ email addresses from Facebook:
  • Access your Yahoo! profile -> go the Contacts tab (just click here).
  • Go to the Import Contacts landing page. In this regard you can click the Facebook import prompt which Yahoo! displays in order to let you know about the new functionality. If you close that prompt, or if Yahoo! takes it down, just click Tools -> select Import.
  • Select Facebook.
  • Type in your Facebook username and password when the Facebook login window shows up.
  • Wait for the importing process to complete (it may take a while, depending on how many Facebook friends you have and how fast your interne connection is).

“We hope this feature makes it even easier to stay connected to the people who matter the most to you. And this is just one of the first steps you’ll see us take to help people interact with Facebook users all across Yahoo!,” added Rick Pal.
