How To Get Email IDs of Your Facebook Friends?

Though, we all love to communicate over the facebook, but when it comes on exchanging our private data like photos, important documents etc, the only medium we can think of is email services like gmail and yahoo. And needless to say, without the email ID we can’t correspond over the email.

Or, if you have ever been on Linkedin or any other similar social networking website, you must have been asked to enter email IDs of your friends to send them invites and connect with them.

But, most often we know our facebook or real life friends by their names, not email Ids. This is where we feel the need of having email ids of our facebook friends. Isn’t it? Moreover, Collecting IDs one by one is a little time consuming.

But as you can see, facebook never exposes email ids of your facebook friends. Either we have to ask them personally for their email IDs, or we have to quit the idea of having the email ID.

So, to prevent you from disappointment, I’ve written this guide for you. By following the guide accurately, you can get the email IDs of your facebook friends right in front of you.

So should we head to the guide??

How To Get Email IDs Of Your Facebook Friends

You might be thinking, getting email ID of your friends must be a difficult and inauthentic procedure since facebook doesn’t allow us to view email Ids of the facebook friends. But, let me clear this thing to you, the method I’m going to show you is fully authentic and involves very easy steps. Now without any further delay, let’s move to the guide.

The procedure to get the email IDs of your facebook friends involves a yahoo account. If you already have a Yahoo account, Great! If no, Then you need to create one.

Step 2. After Login, you have been landed on the homepage of your yahoo account. To get the email IDs of your facebook friends, you need to export contacts from facebook and import them into your yahoo account, since facebook has authorised Yahoo to fetch facebook contacts.

For this, click on the contacts icon on the top left corner of the page. See the screenshot to understand better.


Step 3. If you have just signed up and have no previous contacts on your yahoo mail, you’ll be asked to import from facebook. Click on Import just next to the facebook Icon.

Excellent idea, tip Ankit Kumar. I have save lot of time today and have downloaded 200 plus contacts in no time. Thanks a ton. I want to add another step in saving the contacts to Excel sheet. You can select the EXPORT option after select all contacts and then click on Yahoo.csv and after download save csv as .xls and you have every information possible over there for future reference.
