  2. Then go to Yahoo mail contact import options
  3. Click the Facebook icon out of the contact import options
  4. A Facebook login pop-up appears to grant access to your Facebook account (provide your Facebook credentials at this stage)
  5. Normally all you entire Facebook address book will be available inside your Yahoo Mail Account
  6. Now you can easily export all your Yahoo Mail contacts by downloading a CSV file
  7. Do whatever suits you to import your Facebook contacts from this CSV file (into GMail, Outlook, or whatever contact manager you are using…they all have an import feature for CSV files)
