Export Facebook Friends or Contacts to Google+ (Google Plus) [How to]

There is no option in Facebook to taken out your friends’ email address from it. I am sure that many of you have already started using Google+ and searching for a solution to add your Facebook friends to Google Circles.

Here is a working tip to export (it is not export really) your Facebook contacts or friends to Google+ within minutes. The step involves your Facebook, Google & Yahoo! accounts. If you don’t have a Yahoo! account create one from yahoo.com.

Here is the steps involved.

a) Import your Facebook address book to your Yahoo! mail account

Go to address.yahoo.com, that’s yahoo’s contact import landing page, and sign in with your credentials. You can see Facebook icon there. Click on it will open a popup window, where you need to enter your Facebook log in credentials, if already not signed in to Facebook, to began downloading your entire Facebook address book. It takes only few seconds.
