Many people have been messaging me on how to transfer most of their Facebook contacts to LinkedIn, so I am going to provide a step-by-step tutorial on how to do it!
1. Sign up for a Yahoo! Mail account, and import all of your Facebook contacts. Click “Contacts” at the top, and then “Import Contacts”. Authorize Facebook access to your Yahoo! address book.
2. In your Yahoo! account, go to the “Contacts” tab, click the “Tools” drop down menu and select “Export”, choose “Yahoo! CSV” and this will download the file.
3. Log into your LinkedIn account, go to “Contacts” and “Add Contacts” and you should see a white box that allows you to paste email addresses into it to invite others. Leave this page open. We will come back to it.
4. Open your “Yahoo! CSV” file in Microsoft Excel, copy the emails from there and then paste them into the white box in your LinkedIn page you just opened, then click the “Send Invitations” button. Voila!!
Remember, sometimes LinkedIn might not let you do more than 30 invites at a time, so break the job up into batches of 30 emails you send out on each invite. Hope this helps!
